FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. Do I have to use this for the rest of my pet's life?
No, Healthy Gut is used to help the body to correctly digest food and to add pre and probiotics. It is best used in rotation with Gut Soothe and Love Bugs to give a comprehensive balanced gut health care plan. We do have customers who feel their animals do better when they use Healthy Gut ongoing. This could be because the animals have a compromised ability to produce the proper amounts of their own digestive enzymes. Examples are increased energy, lessened arthritic pain… this is simply because they are able to digest their nutrition.
2. Can this be used for cats?
It is excellent for cats, especially those that suffer from hairball issues!
3. Can I use this if I feed dry food?
You absolutely can! If feeding commercial kibble or processed food of any kind, adding digestive enzymes will encourage the digestion of more of the nutrients in the food. It will help the body “break down” the dry food and help with nutrient absorption. You may notice reduced stool volume which would be an indication of more of the food being used by the body.
