(This is part 7 of an 8-part series on overweight pets from the desk of the Dynavyte Vet.)
Bacillus subtilis (Natto), the key ingredient in Dynavyte Pets and kidneys.
Obese dogs are more likely to suffer from bladder and urinary tract disease, while obese cats are more likely to be affected by both bladder and urinary tract disease and chronic kidney disease.
Obesity may lead to diabetes where there may be a tendency for kidney failure to occur. Stones in the bladder are seen more regularly in obese dogs and can cause urinary tract infections.
Bacillus subtilis (Natto) produces vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 has been shown to improve chronic kidney disease by improving renal artery function and reducing renal artery calcification. Filtration of the blood by the kidney has also been shown to improve.
Vitamin K2 may play an important role in the formation of kidney stones.
As described in Part-2 of this series Bacillus subtilis (Natto) may help reduce obesity as shown in the study where mice were fed Bacillus subtilis (Natto).
