A common probiotic included
in pet foods is L. acidophilus,
which has been shown to
help increase the amount of
healthy bacteria occurring naturally
in the gut.

for dogs and cats that are sourced from their respective
animal for the respective animal. Our proprietary probiotic
blends include five separate bacteria strains, with
each strain in the blend working with the others to support
a healthy digestive and immune system.
" Our probiotics are powerful digestive aids that help
break down food more efficiently, making the nutrients
that might otherwise pass through the digestive system
more readily available, " Sayles added. " The digestive tract
can only interact with so many bacteria, so one of the goals
of daily feeding of probiotics is to ensure that good bacteria
are always available to exert their beneficial actions. "

Purina uses B. coagulans due to its proven efficacy
data in both cat and dog food to promote digestive and
immune health, according to Czarnecki-Maulden. B. coagulans
is a spore-forming probiotic. Such bacteria have
a protective outer layer, which enables them to better
survive food processing as well as the environment in a
pet's digestive tract.
" Almost all of our Diamond Pet Foods and Taste of the
Wild dry formulas offer prebiotics derived from ingredients
such as chicory root and beet pulp, and probiotics
in the form of our proprietary K9 Strain and Viables

age is often a concern. Because probiotics are sensitive
to processing, they are not well suited for wet foods as
they likely won't survive retort cooking. For probiotics
to positively influence the microbiome, research must
show they are efficacious at the time of consumption.
" To maintain a viable probiotic count, certain strains
require refrigeration, making them suitable for raw food
applications, " Copeland said. " In dry applications, probiotics
are more tolerant to storage at room temperature. "
Prebiotics often accompany probiotics
Prebiotics are the fuel for healthy gut bacteria, those inherently
present in mammals and those consumed in
the form of added probiotics. That's why many pet food
formulators add both to their recipes.
" Many of our recipes include chicory root, which is a
source of the prebiotic dietary fiber inulin, " said Natalie
Asaro, nutrition manager, Petcurean, Chilliwack, British
Columbia. " Studies have shown that dogs who eat foods
