I hate to admit it, but I am getting older (I’m 9 years old) and Mom has noticed I get an upset tummy more often when I am travelling. Well, last month when I was at Global Pet Expo, I met a company called Humarian with a new line of pet probiotics. I was curious how they could help.
Disclosure – Humarian has sponsored this post, but all opinions are my own.
Why do Pups Need Probiotics?
I was shocked to learn that I have millions of bacteria in my gastrointestinal track (my tummy and intestines) and not all of them are good bacteria!?!? When we think of bacteria, we don’t usually think about there being a good kind. It turns out that the bad bacteria are what makes me have an upset stomach, constipation (yes, us dogs get it too … not fun at all!) and then what mom HATES to clean up when it happens … diarrhea. I learned we can help run those bad guys out and get a better balance of good vs evil bacteria with Probiotics. Probiotics are the good beneficial bacteria that inhabit the gastrointestinal system. Just like humans, we can take Probiotics supplements which helps increase the number of good bacteria in our gut which also helps support our immune system.
Probiotics can help us pets with:
- Gas + Bloating
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) in pets
- GI tract infections or GI parasites in pets
- Leaky Gut Syndrome
- Better skin/better coat
Why Your Pet Should Try Humarian Probonix Probiotics
There are many different probiotic products on the market, but after talking to my pals at Humarian I was confident that their Probonix was the best fit for me and my jet-setting lifestyle. Why? Well, first, Probonix contains a proprietary acid mixture that allows it to pass safely through the destructive and acidic environment of a pet’s stomach and into our gut more effectively than other probiotics on the market. Humarian is the only probiotic in the world with access to this incredible acid carrier … how cool is that?
Since their probiotics can survive the acid in the stomach, that means the 45 billion CFU’s of probiotics actually survive to make it to our gut to help kick out the bad bacteria and set up their new homemaking and keeping us pets healthy!
If your pup has allergies, you will be glad to know that Probonix does NOT contain wheat, gluten, soy, egg, fish, shellfish, peanuts, or tree nuts. It’s organic, non-GMO, and contains absolutely no sugar.
The bottle is also super convenient for traveling. It is 0.5 oz so It can be in your carry-on as long as it is in a quart size bag for TSA security. It doesn’t need to be refrigerated, but you should keep it out of direct sun/heat (so don’t leave it in your car).
The simple dosing makes it really easy for you humans to give it to us. For us pups under six pounds, it is only six drops. For larger dogs over thirty pounds, it is only eight drops. As far as how to give it, you can put it in our water or just drop it on our food. Plus, it is liver flavored so it isn’t likely we will turn our nose up at it. Each bottle lasts about thirty days. Don’t worry, they didn’t forget the cats. Cats have their own Probonix formula too!
