What Are Prebiotics?

Many of us have heard of the benefits of probiotics, but did you know that prebiotics are equally important? Probiotics provide friendly bacteria to support a healthy digestive tract and immune system, but they need prebiotics to stay alive and flourish. Just taking probiotics without prebiotics may not be nearly as beneficial. Your pet's gut contains micro-organisms such as bacteria (good and bad), viruses and fungi, all of which must live in balance. Prebiotics are plant fibers that feed the good bacteria. Pet-friendly prebiotics are found in flax seeds, berries and vegetables such as carrots, asparagus and green beans. Ask Ariel's Power Probiotic includes six powerful probiotic strains along with inulin, an effective prebiotic sourced from Jerusalem artichoke. By combining these ingredients, Power Probiotic is designed to provide the most complete probiotic supplement for your cat or dog. For more information on pet nutrition click here
