“Triple action” refers to the three active ingredients in Gut Maintenance Plus that together help resolve occasional mild to moderate diarrhea: a bacteriophage cocktail to kill elevated levels of diarrhea-causing E. coli; a probiotic yeast to reduce harmful bacteria like Clostridium; and a prebiotic fiber to feed good gut bacteria.
Frequently Asked Questions
What does “triple action” diarrhea relief mean?
Can I use GMP instead of the Gut Restore?
GMP is intended for specific imbalances, particularly high levels of Escherichia Shigella and/or Clostridium bacteria. GMP is great for occasional diarrhea to get things “back on track.” By contrast, Gut Restore is made of fecal material from a healthy dog, and is intended to reintroduce missing bacterial groups and rebalance the gut. While both supplements are great for gut health, especially when they are given together, they are not interchangeable.
How long should my dog stay on this supplement?
This supplement is intended to resolve cases of diarrhea or soft stools within 60 days. If symptoms persist beyond 60 days, please consult your dog’s veterinarian, as this could be a sign that another intervention is needed.
Can I open these capsules and mix the powder with food?
Yes, if your dog has trouble taking capsules whole, you can open the capsule and mix the powder with food or a treat.
Is this supplement right for my dog?
This supplement is intended to help achieve and maintain a healthy gut microbiome. Specifically, it reduces populations of certain bacteria, such as E. coli and Clostridium, that can contribute to health problems when present in large numbers. Prior to beginning this supplement, we recommend testing your dog’s gut microbiome with a Gut Health Test.
Can I continue my dog’s other medications and supplements?
Gut Maintenance Plus can be given with any other medications or supplements. While many dogs benefit from Gut Maintenance Plus, we always recommend checking with your dog’s veterinarian before adding any new supplement.
Are there any risks associated with this supplement?
While this supplement is intended specifically for dogs with microbiome-related health issues, in rare cases, it can cause symptoms to worsen. Constipation is the most common side effect. If your dog’s symptoms worsen after beginning this supplement, stop giving it until their condition stabilizes.
Our guy Franklin was diagnosed with IBD as a puppy. We tried so many things to help him through this bouts if diarrhea that were so awful for him. Antibiotics, probiotics from the vet, fiber , you name it. We were going to have the vet do a fecal transplant but decided to try Animalbiome first. We did the fecal pills which helped a lot, but he still had random bouts after the FMT pills were done. However, once we started these GMT probiotics his poops have been solid. He no longer squats out in the yard 4-5 times with diarrhea. Franklin also has Bilious vomiting syndrome, and his vomiting has drastically decreased. He went from vomiting almost every morning to only vomitting when he has a new food or medication introduced, so very rarely. I also want to acknowledge the help we received from Animalbiome. What a wonderful support system. We emailed them with questions regarding Franklin's issues and they wrote back with extremely helpful and insightful information and a plan they thought would help. The care they showed me so that I could help Frankling truly blew my mind. It really is because of their guidance and products that Franklin is living a much better life. We recommend Animalbiome to anyone we hear talking about their dog and GI issues.
I rescued a puppy mill breeding dog who unfortunately had to take multiple heavy doses of antibiotics to address various infections. That left him with diarrhea that I couldn’t fix with a bland diet and other probiotics. My vet had me give him a fecal transplant along with Doggy Biome GNP probiotic. It cleared up his IBD and he feels so much better. Thank you for this product!
