Intestinal Health of our Pets

Dogs experience intestinal upsets just like their owners and exhibit similar symptoms of diarrhea, gas, bloating and intestinal discomfort.


There are many reasons for intestinal upsets, but the common causes usually involve something they ate, stress and allergies.


Importance of Intestinal Health

The intestine of animals is inhabited by a diverse population of organisms numbering in the trillions that we call the microbiome. A balanced intestinal microbiome is crucial for maintaining the animal’s health. The normal microbiota performs many functions including:

· Modulation of the immune system

· Keeping invading pathogens in check

· Production of anti-inflammatory metabolites

· Maintenance of healthy digestive tissue and the mucosal barrier


Maintaining a Balanced Intestinal Microbiome

Maintaining both the composition and diversity of the intestinal microbiome is important for not only intestinal health and digestion, but also for many aspects of the general health of the animal. In simple terms, a healthy intestine contains a high number and diversity of beneficial organisms which protect and support the integrity of the intestine and various immune, digestion and health functions. The use of prebiotic products from Pacer Technology are a great way to help maintain the intestinal health of our pets.


Cowboy Brand Healthy Meat Snacks are formulated to support the healthy function of your pet’s digestive system. Formulated with specific prebiotic ingredients, functional fiber sources and Excell™ a lactobacillus fermentation product that effectively nurtures and maintains a healthy intestinal microbiome necessary for optimal intestinal integrity, digestion, and overall health.
