FAQs

My dog has terrible smelly gas and it can be unbearable! Can pro-biotics help?

Yes, probiotics can help with the problem as good bacteria helps to reduce flatulence. They can also help to produce smaller, firmer stools as the digestive system takes more of the nutrients out of the food and therefore less waste is produced.

However, it is also important to feed good quality, natural, complete dry foods, preferably with pre-biotics.

My dog has just completed a course of anti-biotics and I am told that probiotics may help to get his digestive system back in good order – is this true?

Often, both good and bad bacteria are affected by anti-biotics and therefore giving Feelwell’s Probiotic Treats to your dog regularly will encourage the balance in favour of good bacteria.

What is the benefit of Omega 6 & 3 in dog foods?

Feelwell’s use salmon oil as its main source of Omega 6 & 3 essential fatty acids as these can help to keep the heart healthy and also can help to aid skin and coat condition.

Are Feelwell’s Probiotic Treats suitable for all dogs?

Yes, Feelwell’s products are all totally natural and probiotics can be fed to all dogs, however, if your dog has an allergy to any of the ingredients listed then we would not recommend feeding these treats.

Do I need to feed Probiotics every day?

It is preferable to feed probiotics every day, as prevention is better than cure.

However, probiotics can also help to re-set the bacterial balance, which may have been affected due to stress, illness, anti-biotics etc. In this case we would recommend feeding for a minimum of two weeks to achieve the correct balance and then continuing to feed to maintain the improvement.

What size are the treats? I have a Shih Tzu.

The treats come in two sizes please see illustrations on product pages for actual size. Although you could feed either to your dog we would recommend the Puppy Treat as they are also suitable for small breeds and toy dogs.
