Use of probiotics for animals.
Probiotics are used for both preventive and therapeutic purposes.
Probiotics are among the friendly bacteria. They are often used in animal diets as supplements to improve their overall health. A similar effect is due to the fact that with an increase in the number of probiotics, the state of the intestinal microflora improves, which positively affects the functioning of all body systems. After all, it is impossible to deny the fact that modern animal feeding in terms of its composition and diet, production technology (taking into account the sterility of the produced feed) is not native (natural) for the animal.
Our pets, dogs and cats, are predators by nature. The wild ancestors of our beloved pets fed on their own killed prey. Eating the abdominal cavity of the prey, they received the necessary set of enzymes and bacteria, which is necessary for the normal digestion of food and stimulation of the animals’ immunity. As a result of home keeping, and taking into account the feeding with industrial feed, the animal lost the opportunity to receive the necessary components from outside, which were the donor of normal microflora.
Violation of the normal microflora of the digestive tract leads to a decrease in the absorption of nutrients, irritation of the intestinal walls, causing increased peristalsis, diarrhea and a decrease in feed digestibility. Against this background, dysbacteriosis is formed in animals, natural resistance decreases, appearance and well-being deteriorate. The best way to solve this problem is to include probiotic supplements in the diet.
