All pets have good and bad bacteria in their digestive system coexisting at all times. But maintaining the right balance can actually help promote better digestive balance and overall wellness.
So what are prebiotics and why are they important to our pet’s health? Prebiotics are non-digestible fibers that pass through the front part of the digestive tract undigested and help feed the probiotics.
Prebiotics are non-digestible fibers that pass through the front part of the digestive tract undigested and help feed the probiotics.
These probiotics, or beneficial bacteria go to the lower part of the digestive tract. They are good bacteria that then ferment in the lower digestive tract and help with immunity, intestinal health and pathogens reduction. These good bacteria essentially help fight against bad bacteria. They are also very fragile and tend to die easily. Many pet foods that use probiotics bloom off and die very quickly on the kibble, before the pet even has the chance to consume it. But Solid Gold sources our probiotics from Bio Matrix, who invented a proprietary, patented process that enables the probiotics to stay alive and viable on the kibble until consumed by a dog or cat.
