Probiotics, Prebiotics & Enzymes
The video below is very long winded...but be patient, it is very informative, not only for your dogs but we can apply that knowledge to our own health...there are many products out there for humans as well...
On the video the vet speaks about dog food...I will say I have had issues with a certain dog food several years back...bad coats, weight loss, ear infections, runny eyes and noses...one dog was scratching ears so much and shaking his head that his ears were bleeding at the tips...I can normally treat all these ailments but nothing helped...I suspected food issues from all the threads on here at that time even though I had fed that dog food for years...also feeding dogs of this size for many years I noticed in trying to maintain their weight I was feeding winter rations in the middle of summer...and it wasn’t enough...I swapped dog food and dogs got better within a few weeks and were back on normal schedule within a month...
I also now add probiotics to my dogs food bowl every 4 or 5 months once a day for about a week...I buy a 8.46 ounce container of probiotics at TSC (Tractor Supply)...they also sell a large container as a discounted price directly related to higher quantity...
after watching this video I am buying the large container and feed 7 consecutive days per month...and because of video I will upgrade to the one that contains prebiotics as well...and hopefully one that contains the proper enzymes as well if affordable...
Training dogs is not so much about quantity, it's more about timing, and the right situations...After that it's up to the dog....A hunting dog is born...
