COMPLEMENTARY FEED FOR DOGS
Procanicare™ is a complementary feed designed specially for dogs using 3 canine strains of live Lactobacillus bacteria isolated from healthy dogs.
Clinically proven—In scientific studies in dogs, Procanicare™ Lactobacillus bacteria have been shown to improve stool consistency ¹
Whenever GI Support is needed, Procanicare™ supports a dog’s gut flora by reducing ‘bad’ bacteria and by helping a dog’s own ‘good’ bacteria grow.
Procanicare may also be helpful in dogs that are:
- Changing diets or taking antibiotics, which can upset the balance in a dog’s gut flora
- Travelling or staying in kennels, which can contribute to a ‘stress gut’
- Older or have sensitive tummies, as these dogs often have fewer beneficial Lactobacillus bacteria
- Pregnant or lactating females, to maintain a healthy gut flora
In common with many dogs in the area my 16 year old Westie succumbed to a particularly nasty Diarrhoea and Vomiting bug earlier this year. Although she recovered from the illness, her appetite was very much reduced (despite our best efforts to tempt her with her favourite fresh chicken and fish!)
When I discovered that there was a product which was developed specifically for dogs using canine bacteria I decided to give it a go. Tali was given Procanicare for a month; within 2 weeks of starting the course we saw a marked improvement in her appetite, and by the time the course was finished her feeding habits were back to normal.
