Just what is a probiotic?
When feline (and human) health is concerned, Probiotics is the name given to a group of supplements containing live bacteria or, in the case of many pet supplements, fermentation products. These supplements help keep the digestive tract healthy which in turn, keeps the rest of the body healthy too. It may sound odd to encourage the growth of bacteria in the digestive system but like with cholesterol, there is a good kind and a bad kind. Probiotics feed the good bacteria or sometimes add new groups of new bacteria.
