Why do domestic dogs need MBS?
As human’s best friend, dogs have accompanied us on our journey to civilisation.
But along the way they have suffered as we have, from the over-processing and over-simplifying of food and diet, all in the name of opportunity, progress and convenience.
Dogs were hunters
Before dogs were domesticated and took their place by our side, they led another very different life. In the wild, dogs were hunters, mainly of herbivores or grass eating animals, and the leader of the pack, or “top dog,” would take its pick from the kill.
And what was that? The animal’s offal which contained semi-digested plant matter, stomach bacteria, and vitamins peculiar to the powerhouse organs of the body. This rich choice of food, ensured that the top dog remained the best animal in the pack, not only to lead and protect, but to breed.
Today scientists can explain why this instinctive choice of food by the "top dog" gave it an advantage. The “live” good bacteria busily digesting the plant matter in the gut of the fallen animal is a “probiotic” microbe necessary to build a dogs microbiome.
The highly processed foods that your dog consumes limit the gut microbiota diversity. Variety is the spice of life, and so is your dogs diet. The addition of MBS may contribute to the biodiversity necessary for your dog's future health and well being.
Not only may MBS provide assistance to diversify and balance your dog's microbiome, observed studies suggest improvement in vigour, coat and mobility throughout your dog's life.
MBS IMPROVES NUTRIENT DIGESTABILITY. It contains an active live probiotic Bacillus subtilis (Natto), to protect the gut microbiota by keeping alive beneficial organisms which may help your dog’s digestion, immunity and overall health.
MBS MAINTAINS A BALANCED MICROBIOTA. A brewed and fermented product, MBS encourages the growth of good bacteria. Also in the mix are prebiotics (non-digestible long chain carbohydrates) that help the preferred bacteria to feed and flourish. This combination of probiotics + prebiotics is known as a synbiotic.
MBS PROMOTES HEALTHY INTESTINAL INTEGRITY. It helps to re-cultivate the microbial garden after a course of antibiotics. Veterinary surgeons promote the sparing use of antibiotics as they kill many microbes, even the good ones. When antibiotics are necessary to treat your dog, the microbiome's recovery may be faster using MBS.
