Abstract:These experiments demonstrated that prebiotic and (or) probiotic supplementation seems to improve indices associated with gut health of humans and dogs. However, caution should be taken, as LAC supplementation did result in some negative effects (e.g., increased fecal putrefactive compounds). Prebiotic and probiotic supplementation may be most beneficial to dogs with abnormal gut ecology or dogs under high stress conditions.
