The science: probiotics for dogs and cats

Your body is full of trillions of bacteria, viruses and fungi, collectively known as the microbiome, and just like us our dogs and cats have their very own.

The health and well-being of both you and your best friend is affected by these gut microbes, with recent studies showing that we share a large proportion of them with our pets.

And because we live together, we constantly come in contact with their good (and bad) bacteria which can be the means of transfer of microbes between us.

Any diseases caused by the disturbance in their microbiome has a very high chance of affecting us and vice versa, so when the bacteria in your dog’s gut is unbalanced, health issues like diarrhoea, diabetes, gum disease or skin problems may appear.

Ipromea is Australia’s first new functional product range that restores your dog’s natural microbiome from head to tail and everywhere in between.

Our range ensures their wellbeing while keeping harmful pathogens at bay, with the goodness of billions of probiotic bacterial cells in every bite.

With their digestive system making up around 80% of their immune defence, gut health for your dog should be a top priority.

Probiotics and postbiotics are the solution to balance the disturbed microbiota which will help to avoid diseases such as diarrhoea, allergies, obesity and poor skin, hair and nail health.

After understanding the advantages of postbiotics and probiotics for humans, we can now relate many of these benefits to our pets by incorporating them into their daily diet.

The postbiotic components in our special patented Zoonatant™ have direct anti-microbial effects brought by sealing the intestinal barrier and modulation of gut environment, which will prevent the pathogenic bacteria to thrive.

Our pets have habitually adjusted to high carbohydrate diets and share similar lifestyle challenges that we as humans face. By introducing postbiotics, the level of triglycerides and cholesterol present can be drastically reduced, maintaining a healthier weight for your pet.
