I fed chewable probiotics to my dog for a while but ran out and never re-ordered...now that we are almost in vacation season again I thought maybe they might benefit from some probiotics again. Gus gets terrible runs when boarded. Where do you buy yours? and what kind? TIA.

I know a lot of people that have good luck with Purina's Fortiflora.

Nature's Farmacy Digestive Enzymes
recommended dose is 1/2 a teaspoon daily per 50lbs. Cost is about $35 for a 2 pound container. I have been using it here for amost 3 years now.
I've been using the BacPak N-zymes (found online, but I got a local groomer to carry them to seriously reduce our costs!) for years now. They are as concentrated as anything I've seen, and my holistic vet was impressed as well and he has his own line (very expensive!). Dosing is only 1/8 teas for big dogs. I calculate that my food bill is ~25% less. Anne
I've been giving Mo Purina FortiFlora. He's on lots of antibiotics dealing with Lepto/Hepatitis. I think he is slowing but surely getting better. If he is eating really well. I'm able to use it. If not, he'll turn his nose up if I've put it on his food It's been a challenge, but I know he'll get better. He has his 11th birthday coming up on 5/17

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
I use First Choice Naturals 4 in 1 probiotics. Shane's breeder started him on it and I've continued with it for both my dogs. It's a powder and I just sprinkle it in their food.
