We humans write endless articles about taking probiotics and eating yogurt to improve our gut health, with many studies going deep into the benefits and mysteries of the microbiome's effect on our wider health.
It's no secret that the same applies to our pups. Your dog's gut microbiome contains 70% of their immune system, so taking care of it is crucial to their wellbeing.
