As pet parents, we are constantly looking for ways to keep our furkiddos happy and healthy. An essential aspect of their well-being often revolves around maintaining a healthy digestive system. Just like in humans, a well-functioning gut is also vital for dogs, impacting their overall health and vitality. Our natural probiotics for dogs can help you achieve that. As a great proactive support, this supplement can be taken long-term to support your pup’s gut health and more.
What Are Prebiotics & Probiotics?
First things first, let’s understand what are the roles of prebiotics and probiotics and their importance. Prebiotics are plant fibers that feed the “good” bacteria that are already in your pup's gut. They aren’t digested and they stay in the colon to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria.
Probiotics, on the other hand, are live bacteria and yeasts that offer numerous health benefits, especially for the digestive system! Essentially, prebiotics are food for probiotics. When ingested, they can help maintain a healthy balance of gut bacteria and support healthy gut function.
How NHV Prebiotics + Probiotics Helps Support Dogs
Now you understand the functions of prebiotics and probiotics individually, how can they work together to benefit your doggo? It could help in the following ways:
- Restoring Balance & Aiding Digestion:
As mentioned, both prebiotics and probiotics help balance the amount of healthy bacteria in your little one. They work synergistically to restore the natural balance of the gut microbiome, ensuring that the friendly bacteria outweigh the harmful ones. This balance is crucial for a healthy digestive tract. It may help ease digestive discomfort and promote smoother digestion.
- Supporting Immunity:
A healthy gut can be very helpful in balancing your pup’s immune system. By maintaining a balanced gut microbiome, prebiotics and probiotics contribute to a stronger immune response, helping your dog fend off disease.
- Addressing Stress & Anxiety:
Ever gotten that sting in your stomach when you’re stressed about something? Turns out, our dogs get that too. They may experience diarrhea in stressful situations like visiting a vet. That’s because stress and anxiety responses may affect the digestive flow of your little one and cause an upset stomach. Prebiotics and probiotics can play a role in supporting these issues.
*As extra support, our vet-formulated pro and prebiotic contains added pumpkin and carrot powder to help enhance the absorption of the supplement!

Is pumpkin a good probiotic for dogs?
Pumpkin can serve as a prebiotic. As you can see on our nutritional label, we do include this fruit as an inactive ingredient. Why? Because it contains a lot of fiber and helps power up our probiotics!
Can I give my dog human probiotics?
We would not recommend it. Humans and dogs are built differently. So, supplements that are designed for their specific needs would be more beneficial to their health.
Can I give my dog yogurt as a probiotic?
Yes, as long as it is plain and unsweetened, you may give your pup yogurt in moderation.
Is it OK to give dogs probiotics every day?
Yep, absolutely! Incorporating probiotics in your little one’s daily regimen can contribute to their long-term wellness.
