• Harry was just seen at the beginning of the month for a digestive infection. Due to what I believe was finding and eating either a cat or possum turd in my back yard. Tonight yet again he descoverd a “treasure” under some leaves and proceeded to eat some before I realized he wasn’t just sniffing to find a place to pee. Is there a probiotic I could give him to boost his immune system so hopefully in 3-4 days I am not back in the office for the same thing?

    Hi Kathryn,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about this question. There are probiotics that are designed for dogs. However, the benefit and safety of their use will depend on the individual pet’s medical history. Your vet knows your pet and they will be able to give you the best advice on this.
