Advice for Tummy Troubles

Question :

My long coated GSD has had a runny tummy for a few weeks and is beginning to look rather lethargic. We’ve been to the vet and had the usual antibiotics, but he’s no better. The vet is sure there’s no infection.

Is there an alternative treatment which might help boost his immune system naturally?

My Reply :
1) Yogurt is a natural probiotic to help replace flora that was killed by the antibiotics. Mix it with your daily food.

2) Some high end foods have probiotic bacteria in them to aid in digestion. Try one of these foods.

3) Your vet can recommend other probiotic supplements which are far more concentrated such as FortiFlora. This can quickly return balance to the digestive tract.
