PET PROBIOTIC WITH TURMERIC
Did you know that in animals, bacteria are found just about everywhere: on all exposed external and internal surfaces of the body – the ears, nose, the eyes, skin, mouth, throat, and airways – as well as in the intestines, cecum, and colon.
Almost 90 percent of an animal’s immune system is in the wall of the intestines. Without a healthy balance of good bacteria within their digestive tract, their immune system cannot function in a healthy fashion. Allergies or intolerances often start in the gut and are the result of an imbalance of bacteria.
Probiotics – Immune System Building Blocks
Probiotics are live microorganisms that live in various parts of your dog’s body, including the gastrointestinal tract, the oral cavity, vagina, nasal cavity, respiratory organs and even on the skin. The term probiotic literally means “for life.” The word comes from the Latin preposition pro meaning “for” and the Greek word bios meaning “life”. Probiotics are often called “good bacteria.” Keeping a good balance of good (vs bad) bacteria is vital for your dog’s health.
Prebiotics – Feed The Probiotics
Prebiotics are various types of preferred foods that nourish the probiotic bacteria and keep them active. Feeding prebiotics along with probiotics gives your dog symbiotics.
This is a rough starting point as there is no real accurate dosage as we are really talking about a food, not medication. You can increase the amount from there, up to about a tablespoon for larger dogs.

General turmeric dosage recommendations for dogs:
Small dogs should start with about 1/4 teaspoon per day
Medium dogs can start with 1/2 teaspoon per day
Large dogs can start with 3/4 teaspoon per day
A few pointers to be aware of.
Dogs, in particular, can go through a body detox and if you start to see signs of loose stools, you can increase the amount of oil in their food to help absorption in the small intestine rather than passing into the large intestine.
If you do notice any symptoms of diarrhoea or nausea, lower the dose by ½ for a few days. If symptoms persist, do not continue giving your pet turmeric and seek advice from your preferred vet.
