The food our pets eat directly impacts their digestive system, a complex system comprised of trillions of microorganisms. The healthy functioning of this system is critical for good gut health, which positively affects both the immune system and overall wellness. When caring for your pet’s gut health, there some important signs to watch out for. Take our gut health quiz below to determine if you need to reevaluate your pet’s nutrition.
A rash or irritation showing on or in your pet's ears may actually be a sign that they have an imbalance of yeast in the gut, which can spread to their skin and ears.
Your pets produce tears to flush irritants out of their eyes. Eye irritation or the inability to drain tears properly could be caused by an unhealthy gut.
The bacteria in your pet's gut comes into contact with their food, affecting what nutrients are absorbed and how energy is managed. Because of this, gut health can influence your pet's weight.
Pets with upset stomachs due to improper digestion can develop emotional issues. If your pet starts showing these obsessive-compulsive signs, it could mean they need to improve their gut health.
Behavioral issues in pets can be signs of underlying conditions, affected by an imbalanced gut microbiome.
Excessive shedding or loss of fur patches on your pet could be a sign that their body is under stress. Providing your pet with proper nutrition may help relieve stress and reduce fur loss.
A dull or dry coat can often signal nutrient deficiencies in your pet. Feeding them food or supplements with omega-3 fatty acids can nourish their skin and stimulate healthy fur growth.
An imbalance in the gut can cause your pet's food to not be digested properly. This can yield bad breath in your pets. Optimizing their digestion can remedy this.
