Where the magic happens - The active ingredients in Digestive K9
What are the pre and postbiotics in Digestive K9?
We’ve included two prebiotics in Digestive K9. The first is derived from fermented yeast, and the second is our proprietary Bio-K9TM boost pre, para and postbiotic - the first of its kind - which has been developed especially for this product to provide powerful gut support. Both are safe and approved for canine consumption.
What CFU (colony forming units) count is in Digestive K9?
Digestive K9 uses a probiotic concentrate of 50 billion cfu/g to start our fermentation. However, the cfu/g count is not the main focus of Digestive K9. Through the fermentation of ingredients rich in prebiotics, our canine specific probiotic starter culture produces postbiotics, and this unique product contains a holistic blend of prebiotics, postbiotics and Lactobacillus cells harvested from the fermentation.
