Supplements support balanced microbial flora and intestinal health
FORT WORTH, Texas, March 4, 2015 – Tomlyn®, creator of pet health and wellness products, today announced the release of its new Pre and Probiotic supplements for dogs and cats. Both formulas come as water-soluble powders for easy use.
"A healthy level of beneficial bacteria is essential to good health – both in humans and in pets," said Jim Spiezio, DVM, a Tomlyn veterinarian. "Dogs' and cats' intestinal tracts naturally contain bacterial microorganisms, which are beneficial and help our pets digest food and absorb vitamins and nutrients. Pre and probiotic supplementation is a great way to ensure the health of your pet, and that’s where Tomlyn's Pre and Probiotic supplements come in."
Because the amount of intestinal flora fluctuates, sometimes pets don’t have enough healthy bacteria. According to Dr. Spiezio, this can be caused by treatment with antibiotics, a dietary imbalance, dietary indiscretion or even unexplained low levels from birth. While a balanced diet may help replenish some good bacteria, sometimes supplementation is necessary to promote optimal digestive flora and digestive health.
Tomlyn's Pre and Probiotic supplements are sold in individual packets for easy use, as well as to maintain live cells. The supplements for dogs and cats are made up of an advanced formula with one of the highest colony-forming units (CFUs) of probiotics available on the market today – with more than 8 billion CFUs per dog packet, 4 billion per cat packet and added prebiotics to support the growth of beneficial bacteria. The supplements contain direct-fed microbial structures to supply beneficial microorganisms that occur naturally in the hindgut of healthy animals with the nutrients they need to begin healthy colonies. These microorganisms include Enterococcus faecium, Lactobacillus acidophillus and Bifidobacterium breve, among others. Finally, the flavorless, odorless powder is easy to use by mixing in with a pet’s water or food once per day.
