How much to feed and how long can it last?
Add to food once per day. The dosage depends on the dog's weight:
< 13kg: 1/4 tsp for 56 days
13 - 27kg: 1/2 tsp for 28 days
27 - 40kg: 3/4 tsp for 18.5 days
> 40kg: 1 tsp for 14 days
In chronic cases where symptoms do not begin to improve within 10 days, it is best to consult your veterinarian.
Why does my pet need pre and probiotic?
The latest research in human and animal medicine shows that the gut is responsible for more than 80% of the immune system!
The main component of a healthy gut is the friendly bacteria that live there. This bacteria combats bad bacteria - they are the gatekeepers that stop intruders and keep the mucosal lining healthy so the body receives its vital nutrition.
These “good soldiers” need to be able to have the proper fertilisation in order to set up a colony and continue to produce and repopulate. This happens by giving a prebiotic. Probiotics are not nearly as successful at reproducing and flourishing without the help of a prebiotic.
Will giving a probiotic cause intestinal discomfort?
No! In fact, it is quite the opposite - pre and probiotics should support the natural digestion process and help to derail bad bacteria that often is the leading cause of the intestinal upset.
Does this need to be refrigerated after opening?
The product is freeze-dried. While refrigeration is not necessary, we believe it will help to maintain optimal freshness once the container is opened.
Does this expire?
Yes, please check the bottom of the jar for the best before date.
Can I use the product after expiry?
Yes, you can. The best before date is an indicator of when the bacteria will be at their optimum capacity.
What is the difference between Love Bugs, Gut Soothe, and Healthy Gut?
Both products have the same base - the pre and probiotic blend that makes up Love Bugs.
Gut Soothe has the added herbal components that target inflammation and soothe the mucosal lining.
Healthy Gut has added digestive enzyme components.
