A few months ago I did a post on probiotics. I feel like they are an important component of a healthy human and dog supplement regimen, for lack of a better descriptive word.
I received an e-mail from someone in marketing at ProbioticSmart.com – would I be willing to try Probiocin and write a post on it?
So, I tried the product.
My boys were already on probiotics, so I did not notice an immediate change in their GI health or bowel movements. However, what I really liked was the ease of using Probiocin. With Culterelle capsules I need to either put it down their throat or open the capsule and mix it in their food; with the jar of powder I need to measure. With Probiocin, the syringe is marked for every gram and you move it as you use it. Super easy!
I have decided I will be using Probiocin when I travel – it is self contained and clearly marked. Given traveling can be a stressful experience for dogs and sometimes the destination holds its own form of stress (trialing for example), continuing probiotic use is really important, imo. I haven’t decided yet regarding everyday use (of Probiocin, not probiotics). I need to do the math and see what it works out to.
I will say that ProbioticSmart currently has a super price on Probiocin - $4.99 and the price goes down the more you order (effective thru 1/31/10 then the price reverts to $7.99). I checked KV Vet, which I consider to be an affordable source of supplies (particularly because they don’t charge shipping for most items), and Probiocin was $8.69. Yikes! Even if you factor in the shipping from ProbioticSmart their current price is still lower.
So, for ease of use I will recommend Probiocin.
I have a super picture of the package they sent, which was individualized for each dog – I will add it later today. They also sent some Probios Dog Treats which the boys gobbled up.
