Microflora Plus is a great option for keeping your dog’s digestive system regular. Even the healthiest of dogs can benefit from a solid probiotic, as Microflora offers nutritional benefits for pups in all seasons of life. From room-clearing toots to the occasional bout of diarrhea, our digestive supplement can help provide relief for the GI tract (…and for your nose in the case of the gassy pooch!)

One of our most popular supplements, this digestive aid for dogs and cats helps promote proper digestion and bowel health through probiotics, prebiotics, digestive enzymes, and herbs. Each of these work in a different way to help support and maintain a properly-functioning digestive system.

Probiotics and digestive enzymes
Probiotics
Probiotics are “good bacteria," living microorganisms projecting health benefits for their host—namely, digestive systems. They're quantified by the number of colony forming units (CFUs), a term that describes the probiotic's ability to reproduce. The higher the CFU, the better the effect of the probiotic on the body.

Prebiotics of our digestive enzymes
Prebiotics
Prebiotics are essentially the food source for probiotics. They are long-chain sugars that encourage the growth of good bacteria in the gut. It's important to have a high-level CFU probiotic that accompanies prebiotics.

Prebiotics of our digestive enzymes
Digestive Enzymes
Enzymes work to break down nutrients. Some molecules are harder to break down for dogs & cats (for instance, the cellulose found in plant-based foods). Digestive enzymes break down large molecules into smaller, more usable pieces that can be utilized effectively by the digestive tract. Microflora Plus contains digestive enzymes that are specifically geared towards a carnivore’s needs, including elevated levels of amylase and cellulase.

Prebiotics of our digestive enzymes
Gut-Soothing Herbs
Herbs soothe GI distress naturally, without interfering with the probiotics and digestive enzymes already at work. Ginger, cinnamon, and licorice are all gut-soothing herbs that can be found in Microflora Plus.
