As dogs age, they can experience gastrointestinal issues, including decreased appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, and excess gas. These problems can be caused by numerous conditions, including stress, infection, dietary indiscretion, antibiotic administration, and an inability to absorb nutrients properly.
Zesty Paws Advanced Probiotic Chicken Flavored Chews Digestive Supplement features premium prebiotics and probiotics, as well as a special gut health blend, and psyllium husk. Prebiotics are nutrients designed to nourish the good bacteria that reside in your dog’s digestive tract and to encourage their growth. Probiotics are living bacteria that promote the good bacteria in your dog’s digestive tract and inhibit bad bacteria. Together, these high-quality ingredients support gut, bowel, and immune function. Your dog is also likely to love the delicious flavor.
Advanced Probiotic Chews offer premium digestive support through prebiotics, probiotics, and digestive enzymes, which aid digestion, immune function, and gut flora for dogs affected by gastrointestinal problems. Each chew contains 4 mg of PreforPro, a premium pet prebiotic that is clinically proven to support healthy gut bacteria and probiotic species growth. DE111 probiotic is Bacillus subtilis, a spore-forming probiotic, which supports gut microflora and digestion in all dogs. A gut health blend, including amylase, protease, lipase, cellulase, lactase, and bromelain, helps your dog break down fats, proteins, and carbohydrates to support digestive activity, and an immune health blend, containing Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus brevis, Lactobacillus fermentum, and Lactococcus lactis, provides support for the gut flora and the immune system. These scrumptious treats also contain bromelain and pumpkin to promote regularity and overall digestive health.

Highlights from five-star reviews on Chewy include the following:
- “Totally worth it! I’ve tried so many different products, many other probiotics even. This one finally, consistently, has done its job! No more spitting up after eating and drinking. Way less gas! No more tummy gurgling. Very happy!”
- “I cannot believe how good this product works. My beagle has had digestive issues since I’ve had him, and his stools were both hard to pass and inconsistent. After feeding him one the first night I bought this product, he pooped within the first five minutes of our walk (which NEVER happens), and he seems to be a lot less irritated. He’s been on these for about a week, and the difference in his behavior, eating, and playfulness is incredible. Can’t recommend this enough!”
- “It is very hard to get my boys to take any kind of vitamin or pill that is good for them. I usually have to hide it in cheese or hotdogs. Not these! Both Maxx and Dutch loved them. I had to stop them from eating more than their prescribed three each!”
