FidoSpore is the first probiotic supplement clinically proven to support digestive health and reduce leaky gut in dogs. Bacillus subtilis HU58 and Bacillus licheniformis (SL-307) are both spore-forming probiotics that produce digestive enzymes, strengthen the immune system, produce short-chain fatty acids, and maintain the gut barrier. Pediococcus acidilactii is lactic acid-producing bacterium that has a wide range of benefits in dogs. It has been used to treat dogs with digestive symptoms like constipation and diarrhea, as well as dogs infected by parvovirus. P. acidilactii is also known to crowd out unwanted pathogens like Shigella species, Salmonella species, Clostridium difficile, and E. coli. FidoSpore also contains defatted grass-fed beef liver extract added for flavor and aroma.
A recent study examined the effects of FidoSpore on the occurrence of dysbiosis and leaky gut in dogs. Researchers at the University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine in Romania administered a daily probiotic supplement containing the strains Bacillus subtilis and Pediococcus acidilactici to 11 dogs for a total of 30 days. Dogs were divided into two groups: healthy dogs with no GI distress and dogs with gut dysbiosis experiencing diarrhea and vomiting. Results indicated that in dogs with gut dysbiosis, GI symptoms were greatly reduced, or disappeared entirely. Total body inflammation and leaky gut markers were also dramatically reduced. In addition, probiotics did not produce adverse symptoms in healthy dogs and appeared to reduce flatulence. Probiotics for pets have remarkable abilities to improve digestive health, particularly in dogs. In contrast to antibiotics, probiotics work with the animal’s immune system to improve overall function, rather than simply killing off pathogens and many beneficial microbes in the process. Research highlights that probiotics like FidoSpore are effective, safe, and more cost effective than many conventional treatments.
