    Default Probiotics

    Anyone here know of or can recommend a good dog probiotic that they have used and seen proven results with?

    Hey DA, I always give my sick dogs natural pot-cured plain yoghurt. It works really well

    Sorry, i should have elaborated. Excuse long story, here goes...

    Just after arrival here, as you know she contracted gastroenteritis. Vet assumes from the move, travel, vaccination day before etc etc. She had antibiotics and various other medications, and came good pretty quick. She then proceeded to go from a sick puppy with no appetite to a raging pig! Lol.
    But she seems to go up and down. Fantastic eater for a week or two, then down to not eating, lethargic, over-all, off-colour.
    I have checked her. She appears to have no temperature, but is just...off her food terribly again. No diahhorea or anything like last time, but I am concerned she may have either Irritable Bowel Syndrome or Inflammatory Bowel Disease. As this just started again last night, I am watching her carefully. She is drinking well as per usual and keeping her fluids up.
    She has had no change in diet whasoever. There is nothing in the house or yard she has gotten into, or anything she has eaten that she shouldn't have.
    Seen dogs with this before, but only ever owned one that had it. Nearly sent me bankrupt, but thankfully got through it! Lol.
    I am looking into alternative therapy to build her digestive system, immune system and such.

    ah ok... those little bottles of pro-biotic in the supermarket are ok for her ... just dont give her a full bottle a day! lol. A third to half a day should do her fine, it should help bring her levels back up. A bit of time on and a bit of time off should encourage her body to start fending for itself. Good Luck hun

    Hope you can get to the bottom (scuse the pun!) of Inca's problems. If the vet can't sort it out there is a vet here in Sydney that uses natural therapies, and people rave about her. She will do phone consults with other vets which is something to keep in mind if your vet is open to it. Her name is Barbara Fourgere from All Natural Vets in Five Dock. I've luckily not had reason to use her personally but I know of many people that have done. I beleive she works with people all over the country.

    Thank you Greys. That was very helpful. I am very interested in alternative or natural therapies to try and build her own ability, so to speak. Been down this road once before many years ago, and am not willing to go down the same medical road this time, if that is what it is.
