Food is first digested in the stomach and intestine where good bacteria naturally live and allow this digestion and the absorption of nutrients.
What feeds the dog or the cat is not what he eats nor what he digests but what his intestines absorb.
It is also the intestinal bacteria which guarantee the synthesis of proteins and vitamins B6 (pyridoxine), B8 (biotine), B9 (folic acid), B12 (cobalamine) and K2 (menaquinone), necessary for the animal.
It is also the intestinal flora which provides 85 % of the immunity.
If there is not enough good bacteria in the intestine, the animal health is at risk.
The first symptoms of an intestinal flora imbalance arise by diarrhoea, gurgling, bloating, abdominal pain, eczema, scratching, smelly gases, bad breath, lack of energy, loss of appetite, vomiting, fatigue, abnormal hair fall
In the intestine of the healthy animal, good and bad bacteria coexist in equilibrium.
On one hand, bad bacteria can be ingested drinking, for example in puddles or in the trough of another animal, while playing with a sick animal or one of his toys, by sniffing at congeners’ excrements, by eating contaminated foods, ...
On the other hand, the good bacteria can be destroyed by factors such as medicines (for example antibiotics, real atomic bomb which destroys indifferently good and bad bacteria), stress (transport, hunting, containment, training, gestation, breast-feeding, lack of exercise,...), modification in the diet (weaning, novel food...) or habits (change of owner, new member in the family,...).
