On January 31, 2014, Probiotic Action issued a statement regarding the use of a variety of probiotics to help maintain the overall health and well being of dogs.
The story, published on Whole-Dog.com, indicated that various strains of probiotics would be beneficial to dogs. Despite less research being conducted on the benefits of probiotics for dogs, “species with specific strains known to benefit dogs include Enterococcus faecium(strain SF68) and Bacillus coagulans. Bifidobacterium animalis (strain AHC7) has been shown to reduce the time for acute diarrhea to resolve in dogs. Certain strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus improve frequency and quality of stools in sensitive dogs. Lactobacillus rhamnosus strain GG (LGG) is effective in preventing and treating diarrhea in humans, and may benefit dogs as well.”
The spokesman for Probiotic Action, Fernando Perez, says, “It makes sense that probiotics would be helpful to dogs. Although sometimes used for different conditions, it’s clear that probiotics can be used as a safe way to treat a wide variety of ailments in dogs. While the physiology is obviously very different between dogs and humans, probiotics can help dogs in the same way: bolstering their immune systems and helping them to maintain digestive health.”
Perez goes on to say, “Probiotics have been used to help other animals besides dogs. Pigs and other livestock have benefitted from probiotic therapy, helping them stay healthier through natural means. While probiotics do help us to make the best natural acne remedies available, they can also be used to help our canine friends as well. It’s another example of how versatile and functional probiotics are.”
Probiotic Action, a pioneer in using probiotics for acne, follows all probiotic-associated products to collect information in order to help educate the public on the power of probiotics for skin care and overall health. For more information, please visit ProbioticAction.com.
