Best probiotics for dogs

First I'll explain the criteria by which to identify the best probiotics for dogs in an objective way. That said… every dog is different and may require different bacterial strains to gain the most benefits from these supplements. This means that one dog can do better on brand A, and another dog will improve more on brand B.

Criteria to evaluate the best probiotics for dogs

  1. More different bacterial strains, as you never know which one your dog needs the most.
  2. The viability of the bacteria must be evaluated.
  3. Higher number of colony forming units per gram
  1. YOUR results, which is why you'll find a form at the bottom of this page to share your dog's story.
