New probiotic dog supplements launched

Ganeden Biotech, Inc, maker of the patented probiotic strain GanedenBC30, launched a new line of chewable dog supplements, developed in partnership with Sprinks Pets, a manufacturer of canine health support supplements and grooming products.

The line will feature two new probiotic dog supplements fortified with the GanedenBC30 probiotic, Regul8 Daily Probiotic and ProBio-Chew Dental Cookie, which both support digestive and immune health in canine companions.
 
“Ganeden's mission to ‘improve the quality of life' of its consumers really resonated with us when searching for a probiotic partnership,” said Kathy Petrucci, president and CEO of Sprinks Pets.
 
“Since we're trying to similarly bolster the lives of canine companions, we knew that our objective and mission would go hand-in-hand, resulting in a beneficial partnership for both companies.”
 
The first dog supplement, Regul8 Daily Probiotic, is a chicken-flavoured chewable tablet for dogs available in cartons with eight convenient travel sized packets, with seven chews per packet or bulk bags containing 60 chews per bag.
 
The latest product, ProBio-Chew Dental Cookie for dogs, is a large 4 oz. (114g) dental cookie enhanced with parsley, chlorophyll, peppermint oil, mint, and the probiotic GanedenBC30.
 
The cookie is designed specifically to support canine dental health, digestive health, immune health, and to help freshen breath.
 
Both products contain GanedenBC30 probiotic, a strain of Bacillus coagulans, which is unique in its ability to survive harsh manufacturing processes and stomach acids to provide health benefits. For dogs, this translates into regulated digestion and a better overall immune system.
 
“Given that many breeds tend to have more sensitive stomachs and even occasionally have digestive issues, we think these products will be enormously beneficial,” said Andrew Lefkowitz, president and CEO of Ganeden Biotech.
