Civilized living conditions also have a significant impact on our pets, and unfortunately, we often find that they have negative rather than positive effects. Our pets often suffer from digestive problems and diseases (diarrhoea, bloating, wind cramps, constipation), too, due to economical nutrition, unhealthy, unbalanced diet, improper lifestyle (little, inadequate exercise).

Probiotics are microorganisms that provide the host health benefits if dosed properly. Given the fact that probiotics are living organisms, it is important that they survive until they reach the site of action (typically the colon). Probiotics used in veterinary medicine must be safe and effective and must be administered in sufficient amount to have a beneficial effect when they enter the body.

How do probiotics operate in pets?

  1. By interacting with other bacteria: it changes the composition of the intestinal microflora, the bacterial household, in order to repress pathogenic (pathogenic) bacterial species
  2. By influencing the immune response: by acting on the regulatory mechanism of T cells at the local or systemic level, helping to develop an adequate immune response and reducing adverse inflammatory responses
  3. By influencing the function of the intestinal epithelial barrier: the natural mucous membrane of the intestinal system is essential for the protection of the body against pathogenic bacteria and toxic substances. Its integrity and regeneration are aided by probiotics.
