Why Are Probiotics Important?
Roughly 70 percent of an animal’s immune system is housed in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. In other words, a healthy digestive system is vital to maintaining the overall health of your pet. This is why every Taste of the Wild dry canine formula is enhanced with K9 Strain® Probiotics and every Taste of the Wild dry feline formula is enhanced with Viables® Probiotics.
K9 Strain® & Viables® Probiotics: More Benefits from Beneficial Bacteria
Oftentimes, probiotics added to pet foods contain a cocktail of various beneficial bacteria, but they are not guaranteed to survive in the digestive system of canines. That is why we developed K9 Strain Probiotics specifically for Taste of the Wild dry canine formulas. Our K9 Strain Probiotics are derived from bacteria strains found in the canine GI tract, and are proven to survive in your dog’s system.
To ensure your pet reaps the full benefits of these proprietary probiotic strains, we add the cultures to the dry Taste of the Wild formulas after the cooking process (which would otherwise kill the beneficial bacteria). This is how we guarantee that every cup of Taste of the Wild dry pet food provides live, active cultures to help support healthy digestion and help your pet maintain an active lifestyle.
Processed under strict, human-grade standards, both our K9 Strain and Viables Probiotics are guaranteed to be free of harmful pathogens or other contaminants.
