How-to Product Guide

Your dog’s health really does start and end with their stomach. So give them the very best chance of maintaining their digestive well-being with Honest Paws.
30 sticks per bag

Administer one stick per day orally or as recommended by a veterinarian. 

Each Honest Paws Pre+ Probiotic stick contains a blend of beneficial probiotics, with around 5 billion CFU (colony forming units) each. 

Every dog has unique needs. If you are giving your pet Honest Paws Pre+ Probiotics to help with allergies or gastrointestinal upset, then one stick will be enough. If you are dosing a healthy dog for general wellness, then a lower amount will be suitable. When it comes down to it, the CFU measurement of a probiotic is the most important information. A product with high colony forming units will be more effective when compared to a product with low CFU levels. 

For health maintenance in dogs, 1-4 billion CFU daily is enough. You can aim a little higher for large dogs and give your pet up to 5 billion CFU daily, equivalent to one Honest Paws Pre+ Probiotic stick.

Can A Dog Overdose on Probiotics?

Probiotics are safe for dogs, and an overdose is unlikely. However, if your dog manages to consume an entire months-worth of probiotics in one sitting, you may find that they will have an upset tummy for a few days. 

If your pet's gastrointestinal tract is sensitive, its body could take a while to adjust to the change taking place in the microbiome. Loose stools, gas, vomiting, or diarrhea may be a sign of sensitivity. Lower their dose to stop the side effects. 

If your pet's condition worsens or does not improve, contact your veterinarian immediately and stop administration. 

When To Give Probiotics

A healthy gut will affect the entire body, and if your dog's health is struggling, then some probiotics could be just what the vet ordered. 

Digestive Issues

Diarrhea, loose stools, or stinky farts are gross and messy. Probiotics can reduce the symptoms of non-specific gastrointestinal upset. 

Should your dog's digestive issues stem from a change in diet, probiotics can support the adjustment in their gut microbiome.

Infection or Bacterial Imbalance

Harmful bacteria in the gut can multiply when your pet has been ill or if they've completed a course of antibiotics. You want to get those harmful bacteria under control, and a great way to do that is to fill the body with good, strong, and healthy bacteria.

Honest Paws Pre+ Probiotics rebalance the healthy bacteria in the gut flora. 

For General Health Maintenance

Probiotics can be given to healthy dogs to keep their immune system and gut in tip-top shape. 

Health issues like parasite infestations, yeast infections, colitis and bowel disease, pancreatitis, allergies, obesity, and inflammation can be eased or avoided when prebiotics and probiotics are a part of your dog's wellness routine. A probiotic supplement may also improve skin and fur conditions and even smelly breaths. 

For Stress

Stress and anxiety can be very damaging to the canine body. It weakens the immune system and can modify healthy gut activity, resulting in stress-induced diarrhea. Support your pet and ease a tense body by giving it Honest Paws Pre+ Probiotics. 

How To Give Probiotics To Your Pet

Probiotic supplements for pets can come in many different forms. Our Honest Paws Pre+ Probiotics are in powder form, making them easy to pour into your dog's mouth or sprinkle over their meal. Our product is chicken flavored to appeal to your dog's flavor palate. 

You can mix your dog's daily dose with their food or combine it with their favorite treat.

Mixing CBD Products and Probiotics

CBD and Probiotics are both natural options to support your pet's health. CBD can benefit your pet in several ways, while probiotics mainly assist the GI tract and boost the immune system. 

A good dose of CBD oil works with the endocannabinoid system to support many functions in the body. CBD can provide multiple pharmacological actions, including anxiolytic (anxiety relief), antipsychotic (psychosis relief for mental health ailments), antiemetic (anti-nausea and vomiting), and anti-inflammatory properties. 

Honest Paws has CBD products with added ingredients that support Calm, Mobility, Relief, and Wellness

  • If your pet has a specific need for joint health, then the Mobility range of CBD products will benefit them. 

  • For relaxation, sleeplessness, or hyperactivity, the Calm range will meet their needs and provide the zen they need.

  • If your pet struggles with discomfort or stiffness due to daily activity or mobility issues, the Relief range can ease their troubles. 

  • For general health, skin moisture balance, gut health, and more, the Wellness range from Honest Paws can support your pet.

Mixing Probiotics With Medication

Probiotics are usually safe when taken with other medications. However, the one contraindication that you may know of is the opposing purposes of antibiotics and probiotics. 

When your dog is on an antibiotic treatment, you will want to offer them probiotics to support the healthy bacteria in their gut. Veterinarians recommend waiting two hours after antibiotic administration so that the opposing bacteria have a chance to do their work without the immediate risk of combating one another. This way, the antibiotics can have a beneficial effect in killing bacteria, and a supplement can replace the lacking probiotic cultures. 

How To Store Probiotics

For Honest Paws Pre+ Probiotic, you need to store the product in a cool, dark place. You do not need to refrigerate shelf-stable probiotics, but here are some tips to making them last longer:

  • Keep the product in its original packaging. The Honest Paws Pre+ Probiotic individual sticks ensure that each dose is fresh and sealed until use. 

  • Storage of supplements or medications should always be out of reach of children. 

  • Avoid storing probiotics in the bathroom or in a cabinet above the stove where heat and humidity can kill the probiotic cultures. 

  • Enemies of probiotics are heat and moisture, so as long as the product is packed away safely from these two elements, they should survive for the duration of their estimated shelf-life.

We use organic, full-spectrum hemp oil with naturally occurring CBD your pet will love.
Full-spectrum CBD oil is considered the highest quality, most effective CBD oil. This is because instead of just containing CBD, it contains a full range of cannabinoids (like CBD) and terpenes. Terpenes are aromatic oils that come from the same glands as CBD in the hemp plant. We use terpene profiles that promote the desired effect.

For instance, our Calming Bites have a terpene profile that is known to promote relaxation and stress-relief. While our Relief Bites have a terpene profile that is known for supporting healthy bones and joints.
