Frequently Asked Questions
What is a postbiotic?
In a well functioning gut microbiome, the microbes in the gut help to digest the food your dog eats, producing beneficial compounds that help your dog stay healthy. These compounds are called “postbiotics.” Supplementing a healthy dog’s diet with the right postbiotics can boost their immune system and help them stay healthy. Postbiotics can further help dogs with imbalanced gut microbiomes by directly providing beneficial compounds that their gut microbiome may not produce in sufficient quantities that help with gut function and reduce inflammation.
Is this supplement right for my dog?
DoggyBiome Immune Shield can be taken by dogs of all ages. However, safe use during pregnancy or breeding has not been tested.
How long should my dog stay on this supplement?
Your dog can take DoggyBiome ImmuneShield on a daily and ongoing basis. Improvement in skin conditions may take 2-3 months. If your dog’s condition worsens or does not improve, stop administration and consult your veterinarian.
Can I continue my dog’s other supplements and medications?
Yes, you may continue your dog’s other supplements and medications.
Are there any risks associated with this supplement?
Some dogs really like the taste of these chews, so be mindful of the recommended dosage. Unless directed by your veterinarian, do not exceed twice the daily recommended dose.
Does the palm oil ingredient come from sustainable sources?
Yes. We only use palm oil that has been certified by the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). The RSPO is an international not-for-profit organization that promotes environmentally and socially responsible practices in order to minimize the negative impacts of the palm oil industry. Less than 20% of the palm oil produced in the world earns the RSPO certification.
I have been using the product now for about a month. I can already see a difference in how they are feeling, both have had past health issues and this product definitely makes a difference. Their coat looks shinier and healthier, no vomiting from an upset tummy, and stools looks normal. They also love the taste, so much easier than getting them to take a pill! Love the chewable form, easier to ensure it goes down and they are getting the supplements they need daily. Definitely recommended to keep your dog healthy and happy!
This chew is great; it forms the grand finale of a game we play every day. After supper and a little rough-housing I open the jar and let her take one for herself (just one.) Fluffy has been battling several health issues for the past year all of which require medicines including antibiotics, so she is getting the pre-pro-biotics every day and finally the post-biotic Epicor. She is 10 pounds light and15 years old and doing pretty well, which I attribute to the Prepro and Epicor. Here's hoping her allergy-itches dissipate over time.
Our girl loves these and I know she’s getting a healthy supplement. She was having issues with constipation since she’s 13. These seem to be helping with that! Thank you for a great product!! 🐾❤️
I am a pooch with a discerning palate; these are good treats! I had a stomach bug recently and was a bit constipated when it passed. The treats helped with that. More importantly, they are super tasty. Usually if the treat is not meat or cheese, I'm not interested but when my person gives me one of these little nuggets, I dash to the next room in case she decides to take it back!
Great product for my dog.
