Digestive health and your pet
Domestic animals, like humans, are subject to the damaging effects of cooked and processed foods, food additives, environmental pollution, antibiotic treatment and the stress of modern day living. All of these factors can affect digestive functioning and lead to a range of digestive disorders.
The result is that pets in today's world suffer from many of the same digestive complaints and disorders as their human owners. Dogs and cats may vomit frequently and have problems keeping down their food or may be troubled by digestive distress, heartburn, flatulence, diarrhea or even skin allergies due to digestive problems. It can be very distressing to watch your pet suffer from the pain and discomfort associated with chronic and acute digestive disorders, which are often very resistant to treatment.
The natural way
There are many synthetic over the counter and prescription medicines to treat digestive complaints and disorders. These include anti-inflammatories, corticosteroids, drugs that suppress the immune system, antibiotics and other medications for symptomatic relief.
While these synthetic medications may make a big difference to quality of life for animals suffering from digestive disorders and dysfunction, many also come with side effects such as weight gain, diarrhoea and the potential of kidney or liver damage. Immunosuppressant drugs, such as high dose corticosteroids, may also lower the body's natural resistance to illness and upset digestive balance.
Many people today have learnt that supplementing with pre- and pro-biotics helps to restore digestive balance and health and the same applies to your dogs and cats!
