Frequently Asked Questions

What kinds of AnimalBiome products are available?

Dutch offers several products designed to support the digestive health of cats and dogs, including: 

Does my pet need a prescription for AnimalBiome supplements?

No, your pet does not require a prescription to use AnimalBiome supplements; they are available for purchase over the counter. However, even though a prescription isn't mandatory, it's always prudent to seek professional advice before introducing any new supplements to your pet's routine. 

We highly recommend consulting with a Dutch vet to ensure that the product aligns with your pet's specific health needs and to obtain guidance on appropriate usage.

What are the signs of poor gut health in dogs?

A dog's gut health is vital for its overall well-being. Indications of an imbalanced gut flora or other digestive issues can manifest in various ways. Some of the most common signs include:

  • Diarrhea or loose stools: Poor dog diet and nutrition can lead to frequent or prolonged episodes, indicating an upset digestive system.
  • Vomiting: Occasional vomiting might not be a cause for concern, but if it's consistent, it could be related to gut health.
  • Excessive gas: While all dogs can be gassy, excessive flatulence can point to digestive issues.
  • Loss of appetite: A dog refusing food can be a red flag signaling gastrointestinal discomfort.
  • Weight loss: Unexplained weight loss can be due to malabsorption or other gut-related issues.
  • Lethargy: Lack of energy might result from insufficient nutrients due to poor digestion.
  • Bloated abdomen: A swollen stomach can indicate gas accumulation or other gut health concerns.
  • Recurrent infections: A compromised gut can weaken the immune system, leading to frequent illnesses.

What are the signs of poor gut health in cats?

Cats often hide discomfort. However, poor gut health can show up in a variety of ways, such as:

  • Diarrhea: Poor cat diet and nutrition can lead to consistent diarrhea, a clear sign of digestive troubles.
  • Constipation: Difficulty or infrequency in passing stools suggests a disrupted gut.
  • Vomiting: Cats might vomit hairballs occasionally, but frequent vomiting, especially undigested food, is concerning.
  • Loss of appetite: Refusal to eat or decreased appetite can be due to gastrointestinal discomfort.
  • Weight fluctuations: Rapid weight loss or gain can be linked to gut health issues.
  • Bad breath: An unusually foul odor from the mouth can be connected to digestive problems.
  • Lethargy: Like dogs, cats can also become listless if their gut health affects nutrient absorption.
  • Changes in behavior: Increased irritability or hiding more than usual can indicate discomfort.
