PROTECT - Soil Based Probiotics
PROTECT is a veterinarian formulated probiotic blend made for daily use. This next generation blend of soil-based probiotics, probiotic yeast and carefully selected ingredients supports dogs daily from exposure to heavy metals and environmental toxins, while supporting proper gut health.
A healthy dog starts with a healthy gut. But modern dogs are missing out on the benefits from healthy soils. Factory farming, pesticides, herbicides and indoor living can all rob dogs of the riches found in dirt!
Protect restores the earth to your dog with a healthy blend of soil-based probiotics, clays and naturally occurring molecules from healthy soils (humic/fulvic acid). It's the natural way to support a healthy gut in dogs exposed to heavy metals, pesticides and other environmental toxins.
These probiotics (Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus coagulans) are proven, robust species that form a protective outer shell when exposed to heat and acids, making them more likely to survive and colonize. Supports a healthy gut and mucous lining.
This probiotic yeast is resistant to antibiotics and pesticides. Supports healthy digestion and gastric distress.

Can I give my dog PROTECT daily?
Yes! PROTECT is designed to support your dog’s gut daily.
As a great maintenance tool, PROTECT’s healthy soils and prebiotics work synergistically to help support your dog from exposure to heavy metals and toxins.
If you’re looking for a probiotic as a daily preventative plan for good health, soil-based probiotics like PROTECT are a great choice.
If my dogs on antibiotics, can I still give Protect?
Yes. In one study from 2018, they found that a good way to help your dog’s microbiome after a round of antibiotics is with soil-based probiotics like Bacillus subtiliis and Bacillus coagulans and Saccharomyces boulardii.
This study also showed that Lactobacillus probiotics after antibiotics delayed the microbiome’s recovery compared to a group given no probiotics.

Can I give my puppy PROTECT?
In most cases, if you have a new puppy, it’s best to focus on fresh whole food nutrition for a good start to life.
But in some cases, probiotics can be helpful. If your puppy is going from a kibble diet over to raw or fresh foods, then a probiotic can help support good digestion to prevent digestive upset.
Why does PROTECT have a lower CFU than other probiotics?
Soil-based probiotics are spore-forming, which means they can form a hard coating that makes them more resilient and protects them from high heat and stomach acids. It also helps them populate in the colon where they’re supposed to be, rather than in the small intestine.
Other probiotic strains like Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium are much more delicate.
Should I give my dog PROTECT if he has Leaky Gut?
For a more focused approach to a healthy gut and to support a healthy gut lining, we recommend Gut Guard.
Will PROTECT help my dog’s digestive upset?
Yes, Protect contains probiotics that have a proven track record in supporting gut and digestive health.
If you don’t have success with PROTECT try Bifido For Fido instead. (Take advantage of our 30 day money back guarantee). While Protect is a daily probiotic, BFF is a multi-strain probiotic for occasional digestive upset.
How do I know if my dog needs probiotics?
Since 80% of the immune system lives in the gut, most dogs can benefit from pre & probiotic blends.
What is Saccharomyces boulardii?
Saccharomyces boulardii is a considered a probiotic because it benefits the gut and immune system like a probiotic. But it's actually a healthy yeast, not a bacterium.
Because it's a probiotic yeast, S. boulardii is much less susceptible to gut-stressing drugs and chemicals than probiotic bacteria are.
