FidoSpore™is the first probiotic supplement clinically shown to support digestive health and reduce leaky gut in dogs & cats. FidoSpore™ contains a unique blend ofBacillus subtilisHU58,Bacillus licheniformis(SL-307), andPediococcus acidilacticimixed with irresistible defatted, grass-fed beef liver for flavor and aroma. In fact, a recent study exploring gut dysbiosis in dogs & cats found that FidoSpore™ dramatically reduced inflammation, diarrhea, and vomiting in as little as 30 days.2
Man's best friends
Having a dog and/or is not only good for the human psyche but also incredibly beneficial for the human gut microbiome. Did you know that dogs and cats can get leaky gut too? Or that this could be the underlying cause of their recurring rashes, diarrhea, bad behavior or poor wound healing? If the lining of your dog’s intestines begins to deteriorate, then this opens the door for unwanted toxins and pathogens to enter circulation, triggering immune responses such as inflammation and allergic reactions anywhere in the body.
What causes leaky gut in dogs & cats?
Dogs & cats, like humans, have sensitive GI tracts that are unfavorably affected by artificial food products, antibiotic overuse, gut infections, and glyphosate found in the air, water, and soil.1,2As carnivores, dogs are evolutionarily designed to eat meat, yet the main ingredients in most pet foods include wheat, corn, soy and low-quality animal byproducts. These foods, medications, and environmental toxins can irritate an animal’s GI tract, causing damage to the protective lining of the gut. Dogs love to get into things they aren’t supposed to, like garbage, roadkill, and animal droppings they find on the side walk. This puts them at risk of acquiring a GI infection, which can have negative long-term consequences on gut health. In fact, overgrowth ofClostridiumperfringens,Salmonellaspecies, andEscherichia coliare shown to cause inflammation and deteriorate the gut barrier, leading to leaky gut in dogs.3
FidoSpore™is the first probiotic supplement clinically proven to support digestive health and reduce leaky gut in dogs and cats.Bacillus subtilisHU58 andBacillus licheniformis(SL-307) are both spore-forming probiotics that produce digestive enzymes, strengthen the immune system, produce short-chain fatty acids, and maintain the gut barrier.Pediococcus acidilacticiis lactic acid-producing bacterium that has a wide range of benefits in dogs and cats.4It has been used to treat dogs and cats with digestive symptoms like constipation and diarrhea, as well as dogs and cats infected by parvovirus.P. acidilacticiis also known to crowd out unwanted pathogens likeShigellaspecies,Salmonellaspecies,Clostridium difficile, andE. coli.FidoSpore™ also contains defatted grass-fed beef liver extract added for flavor and aroma.
Probiotics for pets have remarkable abilities to improve digestive health, particularly in dogs. In contrast to antibiotics, probiotics work with the animal’s immune system to improve overall function, rather than simply killing off pathogens and many beneficial microbes in the process. Research highlights that probiotics like FidoSpore™ are effective, safe, and more cost effective than many conventional treatments.
