How gut health affects our dogs
The micro environment in the gut influences our dog both physically, mentally and emotionally. Gut health is therefore important for overall health. Dogs have a unique collection of different types of bacteria, fungi and viruses in their gastrointestinal (GI) tract affecting everything from absorption of nutrients, the production of vitamins and other important substances to protecting the body from disease. In addition, dog's cognitive health and mood are also dependent on a well-functioning microbiome.
