Why does my pet need a pre and probiotic?
The latest research in human and animal medicine points to the gut being responsible for more than 80% of the immune system! The main component of a healthy gut is the friendly bacteria that live there (probiotics). This bacteria combats bad bacteria. They are the gatekeepers that stop intruders and keep the mucosal lining healthy so the body receives its vital nutrition.
These “good soldiers” need to be able to have the proper fertilization in order to set up a colony and continue to produce and repopulate. Essentially, you need to feed the probiotics. This happens by giving a prebiotic.
Probiotics are not nearly as successful at reproducing and flourishing without the help of a prebiotic.
Will giving a probiotic cause intestinal discomfort?
No! In fact, it is quite the opposite – pre and probiotics for dogs should support the natural digestion process and help to derail bad bacteria that’s often the leading cause of intestinal upset.
Does this need to be refrigerated after opening?
Love Bugs are freeze-dried, so while refrigeration is not necessary, we believe it will help to maintain optimal freshness once the container is opened.

Yes, please check the bottom of the jar for the best before date.
Can I use the product after expiry?
