S. boulardii can cause constipation in some dogs. Discontinue use if your dog’s stool becomes hard and dry.
We have been using this on my Goldendoodle to correct her gut health. She kept having gastritis and resulting diarrhea. We had done the conventional treatment of Flagyl but it wasn’t fixing the underlying issues. After an analysis of her stool, it was recommended by the Animal Biome folks and her veterinarian nutritionist we use this. She has not had gastritis in 18 months. Her poops are much improved and she feels better. It’s pricy but worth it to have my dog healthy.
My sweet fur baby, Golden Retriever Siberian Husky, was having some stinky breath and I decided to try this product to support her biome health. After one month of taking the product, her breath started to smell like fresh healthy milk instead of stinky and fowl. Amazing experience! I swear my dog smells so good!
My Elle is a 10 year old mostly-dachshund rescue. She had chronic diarrhea that could only be arrested with antibiotics. After a year of trial and error and always coming back to antibiotics, I discovered Animalbiome, did the tests, the Gut Restore treatment and finally, the S. boulardii + FOS probiatic/prebiotic powder. The results were fantastic. For the first time, Elle's stools are firm and regular, her skin is shiny and not itchy. She is healthy and happy. For about 6 months now and I understand I can continue to use this product indefinitely. Thank you, Animalbiome!
My little Catahoula-Corgi mix was a sick, itchy mess with horrible soft stools that had globs of mucus. After getting her tested for food allergies and stopping those she cannot eat, she got much better. But her diarrhea just would not stop. These wonderful AnimalBiome folks tested her stool and found out she can't digest carbs, so she gets NO carbs now. That helped a lot more but still the diarrhea wouldn't stop. So these folks recommended this S. boulardii product. I sprinkle just a little on all her meals. Within days, her diarrhea had stopped! Her stools are now healthy looking (and easy to pick up). Her overall health is now good. She seldom scratches at herself. This is a great product. One jar lasts a long time. Thank you AnimalBiome!
Cooper was a tough case. He had been on and off antibiotics many times this year. He suffered very awful diarrhea daily and nightly. S.Bouldarii improved Cooper's diarrhea within 3 weeks. It improved enough to get Cooper on board with the Gut Restore and he has been doing solids for 3 weeks now! So very happy that we did not revert back to antibiotics. This is much more of a safer, holistic choice! Fantastic customer service: the staff were available, understanding, friendly and very helpful. They guided me through every step of the way. They have the health of your pet as their #1 concern.
