I took two of the dogs to their chiro today -- I've seen this chiro for 19 years now, he's been invaluable to all my dogs and I couldn't have kept Sander and Mikey alive without Dr H's help -- and told him about Rowley's heartworm positive. We went over the treatment and the nutritional support I've put into place, and he said 'the only thing I can suggest is spore biotics, a course of those might help him' and he went on to talk about gut health and how it's the foundation of all other health.
So I looked up spore biotics when I got home, and it seems to be a prebiotic? I really hate ordering anything from Mercola, and I'm not sure this supplement will add much to Rowley's benefit. He's getting a daily probiotic and also the saccharomyces boulardii that Sabine recommended. He takes 200 mg of doxy at breakfast, mid-day he gets the probiotics and s. boulardii, and at dinner another 200 mg of doxy. He's tolerating this very well, no loose stools or digestive disturbances so far. He also gets plain kefir 5 days a week on his breakfast kibble, and plain yogurt the other 2 days a week.
So, has anyone used spore biotics, have any thoughts pro or con?
