Your dog’s well-being starts from within

Gut problems are one of the most common reasons why dogs visit the vet. And just like with people, when your dog’s gut isn’t working properly, it can have a ripple effect on their overall health and well-being.
That’s why biomecare focuses on supporting your dog’s gut health, so you can focus on enjoying life together with them.

Gut health

If your dog is experiencing gut problems, you feel it too. You want them to feel better as soon as possible, and you want to stop it from happening again. Calming an irritated gut and supporting it’s natural balance is key for long-term well-being.

Gut microbiome

Your dog has thousands of different types of microbes in its gut. These are mostly bacteria, but they also include viruses, fungi and protozoa. Together they make up the gut microbiome.

Why is a healthy gut important?

A healthy gut microbiome is necessary for the normal development and functioning of your dog’s gastrointestinal system, and it’s also vital for their overall health. It begins to affect your dog’s body from the moment they are born.
Researchers are constantly learning more about all the different ways that the gut microbiome may affect other parts of the body. For example:
digestion

Digesting fibre

Certain bacteria digest fibre, producing fatty acids that are important for gut health. Fibre may help maintain a normal body weight, and can be a part of keeping healthy when suffering long-term health conditions.

immune-system

Helping the immune system

The gut microbiome also controls how the immune system works therefore an optimised gut microbiome is essential for maintenance of gastrointestinal immunity.

brain-health

Helping brain health

New research suggests that the gut microbiome may also affect the central nervous system, which controls brain function.
