Antibiotics and Probiotics

Question:

My dog has Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and has been on antibiotics almost every other month. I am concerned that this is also killing off the good bacteria in his stomach. Should I give him a supplement to help?

Answer:

Antibiotics do kill the healthy or "friendly" bacteria in the digestive system along with the bad bacteria, so you would be wise to also give your dog a probiotic supplement. This will help restore the good bacteria and potentially help relieve indigestion or other side effects. It is best to wait an hour or two after giving the antibiotic to give the probiotic.
