Repairing The Gut

Repairing The Gut 

The Gut is a key part of our pets digestive system and a healthy gut means a healthy pet. Just like in people, the gut is what we call the part of the digestive system that includes theesophagus,stomach, andintestines


Through each step of the digestive process there are many different microbes that break down the food that has been consumed to extract the nutrients from it to absorb it into the body. These microbes are different types of bacteria that assist the digestive process. When the gut is healthy these microbes are able to break the food down with greater ease. They are also able to extract more nutrients from the food. 


When the body is absorbing the most nutrients it can, it is able to function better. These key nutrients assist the body with things like kidney function, brain function and Heart Function. 


The Gut is also, in part, is responsible for a healthy immune system and helps key things like brain, kidney and heart function. It relies on the nutrition that is provided to the body via the gut. All these things contribute to the overall health of your pet. 


A good immune system comes from a healthy gut. 


A healthy gut starts with a good diet. Ensuring that your pet is getting all the key nutrients from their food that they can. A healthy gut also means determining if your pet has any allergies that you may or may not be aware of and steering clear from foods that contain these allergens. 


Sometimes ensuring that your dog is eating all the correct foods is not enough. There are certain key things that the body can not naturally produce like essential fatty acids. An additional supplement may be needed to ensure that all these nutrients are being absorbed through the gut and the body is functioning at its full capacity. 


Pets need Key Fatty Acids from Omega 3, 6, and 9. 


Key Fatty acids include Omega 3, Omega 6, and Omega 9. To ensure the body is performing at its best, a ratio of 2-1-1 of omega 3,6,and 9 should be present. The Pet Drs Mega Oil is a fantastic source of these essential fatty acids and can easily be added to your dog's diet.

They are important to have in a balanced diet as they are something that are key to a healthy gut. Probiotics are something you probably have heard of. THey are the good bacteria that are in the gut. They help with digestion and strengthen the immune system.  Prebiotics and Probiotics can both be found in the Pet Drs Gut + Immunity Supplement
