What To Know About Superbugs and Your Pet

Is your pet getting repeat infections? Continued use of antibiotics can lead to a pet developing “superbugs”. Superbugs are bacteria that become resistant to antibiotics making them tough to treat. When your pet takes antibiotics, not all bacteria are killed. Some can survive and develop mutations that allow them to resist the effects of the antibiotics.

To prevent superbugs and avoid the overuse of antibiotics, it’s important to strengthen your pet’s immune system. Avoiding food allergens and feeding a low carbohydrate diet can help along with regular exercise and vet visits. If your pet has an ongoing infection, consider immune-boosting supplements like Power Probiotic, Olive Leaf Extract and our Immune Support Kit.
