If Your Dog Itches, Paw Licks or Eats Grass, These Postbiotics are a Must. Here’s Why.
If Your Dog Itches, Paw Licks or Eats Grass, Their Health May Be in Danger.
Itching, licking and grass eating all seem like normal behaviors. But are they really?
Some people even think that dogs eat grass because their hungry. Wrong.
All of these outward signs are usually related with their gut health.
Inside our dogs (and humans, too), is an entire city filled with good bacteria, bad bacteria and yeast. This is known as the gut microbiome.
Everything in the gut microbiome is meant to work well together. BUT, like cities can get overpuplated and filled with pollution, so can our dog’s gut microbiome.
That happens when bad bacteria and yeast outnumber the good bacteria.
Clear Signs Your Dog Desperately Needs Your Support
- Grass eating: Dogs often eat grass unknowingly to balance the bacteria in their gut, although that usually does not work.
- Poor poop, smelly breath, farting: All signs that your dog’s gut is heavily disturbed.
- Head shaking: Dogs do that when yeast builds up in their ears and they want to soothe the discomfort.
- Paw licking: Bad bacteria in the gut and yeast overproduction lead to a hyperactive immune system and inflammation, causing the dog to lick his paws to moisturize the skin.
- Ear scratching: Yeast can also infect a dog’s ears, making them scratch to get git of the itch.
If you're seeing just a few of these signs, you need to act.
It’s More Dangerous Than People Usually Think
Most people don’t realize just how important a dog’s (and human’s, too) gut microbiome really is.
It plays a key role in:
- Digestive health
- Mental well-being
- Metabolic health (think diseases like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, liver disease)
- Skin & coat health
The gut is actually one of the most important organs. Keeping it healthy, and making sure the microbes in your dog’s gut are balanced, is key to long-term health and wellbeing, as well as preventing serious disease down the line.
So, as soon as we notice something that could signify issues in our dog’s gut, we need to act, fast.
