Dog Getting Older?  What You Need to Know.

September 16, 2021 | Logan Simmons
Just like us humans, dogs can experience more health challenges as they age.One of the issues that they can experience is dysbiosis where the balance of microbes in the gut can get out of balance and cause inflammation and digestive problems.  As such, diet becomes even more important in old age as these microbes are often received thru food.

Researchers have sought to solve these issues by determining if supplemental probiotics, enzymes, prebiotics and plant extracts can improve gut health in older dogs.  During their research, its was determined that dogs fed diets with prebiotics had higher beneficial bacteria in their gut than dogs that didn’t receive the same diet.  Overall, prebiotics were found to rebalance the gut’s microflora which led to improved digestive outcomes and lower inflammation.
