Why does my pet need pre an pro biotic?
The latest research in human and animal medicine points to the gut being responsible for more than 80% of the immune system !

This bacteria combats bad bacteria, they are the gate keepers to stop intruders and keep the mucosal lining healthy so the body receives its vital nutrition.
