A healthy digestive system is extremely important to your dog’s overall health. Unhappy digestion makes an unhappy dog. If your dog’s digestion could use some improvement, here are five ways to help your dog’s discomfort.
5 Ways to Ease Your Dog’s Digestion
The best known probiotic food is yogurt. Why? Yogurt contains good bacteria. Adding a spoonful of plain, low or non-fat yogurt to our dog’s mealtime can provide digestive relief. A fun way to add yogurt to your dog’s diet is making homemade frosty treats. KORU BEAR’s favorite are my Kong Shaped Frosty Berries dog treats mixed with strawberries and superfood blueberries.
Pumpkin a fiber-rich food can ease dog’s digestion in several ways. Plain, canned pumpkin can be a great addition to your dog’s diet. Pumpkin contains beneficial vitamins and minerals, such as vitamins A, E, and C, and potassium and iron.
When the fresh pumpkin is not available in the store, I use Nummy Tum-Yum Organic Pumpkin and on the road, it’s very convenient to add pumpkin with Weruva Pumpkin Patch Up!
3. Bone Broth
Bone broth is known as a magical feel-good superfood and promotes a healthy gut. It is loaded with glycine, which helps digestion.
A homemade bone broth takes a long time to make so I prefer CARU Grass-Fed Beef Bone Broth. I use it in three ways: to moisten KORU BEAR’s kibble, frosty broth treat, and/or hydration water.
4. Kelp Supplement
Kelp is known to aid dog’s digestive system; to flow smoothly and function properly.
I use SealMeal from Solid Gold. It is a powdered kelp-base digestive health supplement. It contains seaweed, flaxseed, digestive enzymes, dried pineapple, dried lemon peel.
5. Probiotics Supplement
To ensure you’re supplying the right types of bacteria, it is important to provide only probiotics formulated specifically for dogs.
KORU BEAR’s digestive health improved from Humarian’s Probonix, a liquid probiotic for dogs. Probonix played a special role in KORU BEAR’s poop. On a previous post, The Poop on Probiotics, I shared how Probonix helped firm-up his poop. Your dog’s poop definitely can tell you about his digestive health.
A healthy digestion means a happier, healthier dog!
