Saccharomyces boulardii is a healthy, probiotic yeast. Yeast-based probiotics are unique because they're not harmed by antibiotics, like other probiotics are. Studies also show that Saccharomyces boulardii can help ease digestive upset during antibiotic use. This makes Saccharomyces boulardii the perfect choice for dogs being treated with antibiotics or other medicines that harm gut bacteria.
This friendly yeast delivers other gut benefits too. It helps maintain a healthy gut lining and studies show S. boulardii can influence parts of the immune system that maintain proper gut permeability.
As a probiotic, it brings health benefits to the GI system and ultimately, the immune system … and it stops diarrhea!
More importantly, S. boulardii prevents diarrhea stemming from antibiotic use. So if you need to give your dog antibiotics, you should give him S. boulardii as well.
S. boulardii calms the intestines and protects them from pathogens and intruders that can damage the walls of your dog’s intestines. It also modulates different parts of your dog’s immune system and keeps the intestinal barrier function up and running. Damage in the intestinal barrier can lead to GI diseases.
