Technical Focus

Pre and Probiotics

VetSpec Healthy Dog contains a probiotic licenced by the EU to maintain good gut health in dogs. The gastrointestinal tract of the dog naturally contains populations of 'good' lactic acid producing bacteria, and 'bad' harmful bacteria like E Coli, and Salmonella. The probiotic works by increasing the numbers of lacticacid- producing bacteria, and limiting the growth of the harmful ones.

VetSpec Healthy Dog also contains mannan oligosaccharides (MOS). This is a constituent of yeast cell walls. It bonds with pathogenic (bad) bacteria, removing them from the gut, leaving the beneficial bacteria free to multiply. The probiotic and MOS work in tandem to optimise the dog's digestive tract and ensure that performance, feed conversion and welfare are maintained. (The probiotic is found in VetSpec Calm & Focused supplement, VetSpec Healthy Dog supplement and VetSpec Senior supplement. The prebiotics MOS and FOS are found in the whole VetSpec Complete Dog Food range.)
