Sources of Probiotics

Posted by Ruby Tequin on

Your pet has trillions of microorganisms living in their body. From their mouth, stomach, colon, to their anus, everything stores bacteria. However, not all bacteria are created equal. Some are bad while some even promote your furry friends health. 

Good bacteria shape your pet's digestive system. Aside from the gut, these bacteria also support the brain, digestion, absorption of nutrients, and immune system. Feed those bacteria with the following foods that are rich in probiotics:

  • Bananas
  • Fermented vegetables (such as kimchi)
  • Green leafy vegetables
  • Garlic (must be organic and fresh)
  • Apples 
  • Mushrooms

Some would say that we should give our furry pets probiotics only when they have an upset stomach. However, since these are fresh and natural foods, it is not that harmful to give them on a regular basis. A regular dose of probiotics does not only build strong gut but it also prevents diseases.
