Signs of poor gut health in our pets

Signs of poor gut health in pets

Probably no system is more important in our pets than the digestive system. Poor gut health can lead to many problems we can’t see, like low-grade leaky gut.

A healthy gut means a healthy gut microbiome. The gut microbiome is heavily influenced by diet, stress, and the environment.

Poor gut health is also the most common reason our pets end up sick at the local veterinary clinic.

The obvious signs of poor gut health are diarrhoea and vomiting. Diarrhoea can be acute or sudden, intermittent or chronic, and long-term diarrhoea for some pets.

While we can also see obvious signs like weight loss and poor energy, more subtle signs of gut health issues can be poor skin condition or depressed behavior.

A healthy gut is like a sponge; it will absorb all the nutrients needed for metabolic health. However, when we have low-grade inflammation, it can affect health and wellbeing. Leaky gut syndrome is a well-known syndrome where the lining of the intestine can be inflamed. The postbiotics in our liquid-like Short Chain fatty acids are essential to reduce the risk of this leaky gut.

Hippocrates once said that all disease begins in the gut. We can now say that all health should start in the gut. Avoiding digestive upsets is key to a happy and healthy pet.

Proper veterinary advice and intervention

With many causes of diarrhoea and vomiting, we must seek veterinary intervention. For example, we can see fluid loss and rapid metabolic depression with acute diarrhea and vomiting. In contrast, chronic diarrhoea cases require careful investigation to find the cause of the problem.

Everyday things are common, so we must always rule out parasites or infectious causes of diarrhoea in our pets. In more complex cases, it can be allergies or underlying metabolic conditions.

The gut microbiome

A healthy gut requires a healthy gut microbiome. The gut microbiome is the billions of beneficial microbes that help aid digestion, regulate immune function, and compete with harmful pathogens.

When we see diarrheoa, we see a disruption to our pet’s gut flora which we often call dysbiosis. With chronic diarrhoea, we can also see changes to the gut microbiome, which will significantly impact digestive health and immunity.

We must remember that 70% of our dog’s and cat’s immune cells are gut-based. Therefore, for long-term health, we must optimize gut health.

When we use probiotics, we are helping to mimic the role of these good bacteria in the gut. Precision Microbes is so unique with a live liquid probiotic with all its postbiotics.

Helping stabilise the acute case

When we see diarrhoea in our pets, it is often caused by dysbiosis or a shift in the normal gut flora to more harmful pathogens.

For acute diarrhoea, Precision microbes is a licensed gut stabiliser. It contains the probiotic Enterococcus Faecium NCIMB10415. Gut stabilisation means helping inflamed gut tissue’s physical recovery.

Precision is a very unique liquid probiotic and postbiotic. The postbiotics make it a very fast-acting gut stabiliser because the postbiotics are essential when we need biological repair in the damaged gut tissue or lining of our pet intestines.

Chronic gut health issues and probiotics

No doubt chronic inflammatory conditions in our pets’ digestive tracts are a problem for them. Even low-grade or intermittent diarrhoea can be uncomfortable and set them back.

With an unhealthy gut, we must also remember it can be painful. In addition, new studies show how a link between the gut and the brain may affect behavior in animals and humans.

So along with veterinary assessments and dietary changes, Precision Microbe’s unique liquid probiotic and postbiotic can help alleviate the chronic issues.

Precision Microbes is designed to be given to both cats and dogs in feed daily. It is highly palatable, and the unique live bacteria that are acid adapted with all their postbiotics get to where they need to be in the gut. Our products are entirely natural, organic, and developed from a deep understanding of how nature works biologically.

Remember, the gut is like a sponge, and we can see huge benefits when it’s¬†optimally performing. Our customers talk about the difference in health, vitality, and coat condition in their pets on long-term usage.
