Dog Food With Direct Fed Microbials Is A Good Choice

Dog food with direct fed microbials, or better known as “good bacteria” or probiotics” is definitely a good choice when it comes to a holistic dog food. Probiotics were not even talked about until just recently and it’s a good thing that they are finally taking the spotlight. These “good bacteria” help to keep our immune system and our dog’s immune system in a healthy state. These good guys block “bad bacteria” from setting up house in our bodies.


Many dog foods on the market fail to supply these helpful guys so it’s important to read your labels closely to find out which dog foods contain probiotics.The best probiotic dog food will include these in particular:  Lactobacillus acidophilus , Lactobacillus casei, Bifidobacterium thermophilum, and Enterococcus faecium. A good variety of direct fed microbials is a plus when reading the dog food ingredient list.


One dog food company, Life’s Abundance, makes sure they choose direct fed microbials that will still be viable after the dog food has been cooked. They make sure by encapsulating the “good bacteria” so it will be protected during the cooking process. Probiotics are live organisms and they need to remain alive in order to be beneficial in the digestive system. They also don’t cook their food at a high heat which helps also.


You want your dog to stay healthy and have a long and productive life so making sure they get these good guys in their dog food is a great way to start. Our dogs are, as they say, “what they eat”. So take the time to read the dog food ingredient list and make sure direct fed microbials are listed. Your dog will be glad you did!
