Probiotics, What Are They? Do our dogs NEED Them?

Friendly bacteria including Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifido-bacterium bifidum, and Lactobacillus bulgaricus are your pets body’s first line of defense against the all the potentially harmful microorganisms that your pet or yourself inhale or ingest. Probiotics are another term for these friendly bacteria that live and work in the gastrointestinal tract every day of our life. Having sufficient numbers of these friendly bacteria in residence can help prevent a wide range of health problems. METABOLIC, NUTRITIVE, PROTECTIVE and ANTI-MICROBIAL. There are two types of bacteria, which colonize our bodies, good and harmful bacteria. 

Good bacteria, most of which are Lactic Acid bacteria ensure good health. To achieve this they must be present in optimal numbers, types and ratio…. Probiotics are live and beneficial bacteria. If we wish our petsto maintain a healthy body, we need large quantities of friendly bacteria. Live bacteria supplementation, as opposed to freeze-dried or liquid preparation tend to have a greater effect on the re-colonization and re-balancing of the gut microflora. 

Overuse of antibiotics destroys good bacteria as well as bad. Moreover, stress, poor diet, pollutants, environmental changes, and prescription drugs can also deplete beneficial bacteria. These chemicals, as well as chemicals in the water supply, reduce the good bacteria in the gut. Pets with large amounts of beneficial bacteria are better equipped to fight the growth of unhealthy organisms. If pets are to maintain a healthy body, they need large quantities of friendly bacteria.

Bird Food Guide: An Insider’s Guide to The Ideal Avian Diet

At home, your bird also nourishes himself on what’s available, so it should ideally be the most balanced, natural and whole food possible. A bird on a poor diet will not live out his full life span, and will most likely succumb to any number of viral, bacterial, and fungal infections. A good diet boosts the immune system and helps the bird ward off illness. They are also fun for your bird to eat and are packed with a wide variety of healthy, nutritious, non-GMO ingredients, most of which your bird would search out in the wild. The base diet – whether it’s Nutri-Berries, Nutri-Meal bars, Avi-Cakes, Pellet-Berries or Premium Daily Diet Pellets, or a combination of these – should be offered in the morning when the bird is hungriest. 

Many new bird owners become confused about what they should feed their birds. If your bird is eating Lafeber products, you have much less to worry about, because these diets are nutritionally complete. Still, you may have a bird that is molting, laying eggs, or recuperating from an illness or injury, or perhaps your bird is stressed from a recent move, loss of a mate or other stressful situation. Speak with your avian veterinarian about dietary supplementation before you start giving them to your pet bird. These recipes, all of which include Lafeber bird foods, are also great for weaning chicks and molting birds. 

Along with your bird’s base diet and other healthful foods, it’s great to offer nutritious snacks, but most importantly, snacks should be fun to eat, like Popcorn Nutri-Berries. Snacks should make up no more than 10% of your bird’s diet during the week.
