Hi ddr03055, I just copied that from their website. Just my opinion here, but I wouldn't feed that to my dog. The ONLY beneficial bacteria listed is S. boulardii--the one Elaine Gottschall warns against for anyone w/Crohn's or UC!!! On top of that, it is filled with a lot of unnecessary and contra-indicated additives (starch?) and stuff most people can't pronounce. Also, there is no mention of how many cfu (colony forming units) per capsule.
There are frequent discussions here about what probiotics people use. We use Theralac which can be found by putting .com after its name. There are MANY good brands on the market, though. Choose one that has at least 10-15 billion guaranteed cfu per capsule and needs to be refrigerated. Health food stores are probably your best spot to buy them (and I don't consider GNC a health food store....) VSL#3 is probably the strongest probiotic on the market (225 billion cfu per capsule). Some here like it, some don't.
Put "probiotics" in the "search site" above and see what you find. Also, here's a recent thread on probiotics:
