Can Your Pet Benefit From Both Probiotics and Enzymes?

Digestive enzymes and probiotics are both important for maintaining a healthy digestive system in pets, and using them together can provide synergistic benefits.

Digestive enzymes help break down food into smaller molecules that can be absorbed and used by the body, but they do not provide any new beneficial bacteria for the gut.

Probiotics, on the other hand, contain live beneficial bacteria that can help improve the balance of the gut microbiome which can improve digestion, reduce inflammation, and support the immune system. They can be especially helpful for pets with digestive disorders like inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), diarrhea, or constipation. However, probiotics do not necessarily help with the breakdown of food. Using both digestive enzymes and probiotics together can provide a more comprehensive approach to support your pet's digestive health.
