My Dog Has ‘Normal’ Poop. Does He Really Need A Probiotic Or Digestive Enzyme?

YES! 80% of your pet’s immune system resides in the gut, meaning healthy gut flora is incredibly important for overall health and wellbeing.

 

Pro-Tip: Itchy skin, bad breath, ear infections, picky eating, and even anxiety can indicate an unhealthy gut. Your pet’s poop only shows a small part of a very BIG picture.
