A few weeks back, we went through nasty round of coughs at our house. My hubby and I knocked ours out pretty quickly, but it took a little bit more power for the girls. At just 15 months old, once theirs started to settle in their chest, I got them to the doctor. Antibiotics aren’t my preference, but neither is RSV, so it was a round of antibiotics for each of them, and then I kicked in the probiotics for everyone!
If you’re not familiar with probiotics, here’s a quick explanation: Probiotics are good bacteria that are either the same as or very similar to the bacteria that are already in your body. Things like antibiotics kill off those good bacteria in your body, and then your body functions at a diminished capacity as a result. When probiotics are introduced, they promote a healthy immune system and healthy bowels! And we ALL could use more of that!
Keeping foods rich in probiotics and taking probiotics after antibiotics are completed have always been regular practices in our household…or for the humans in our household, that is. So when I discovered there a was a probiotic for DOGS, I was, first of all shocked.
If you haven’t met her yet, meet Taffy the White Doggie.
We adopted Taffy from the SPCA a few years ago. Taffy is part of our family! She travels with us. She celebrates with us. She plays with us. She exercises with us.
So finding out that I could keep her healthy just like I do the rest of us, well, I was pretty stoked!
Recently I had the opportunity to start Taffy on Liquid Longevity, a natural daily probiotic food spray!
The folks at Liquid Longevity are a team of pet nutritionists and pet lovers with more than 60 years of experience with pet nutrition. They also strongly believe in the benefits of proactively taking probiotics themselves each and every day. Since they are always looking for ways to do all they can to help support the health and well-being of all of our four-footed friends (which we can all agree could range from orthopedic dog beds to hiking with your dog), they started looking into giving probiotics to their dogs! (A fantastic idea, I must say.)
Why Liquid Longevity for your dog?
- It contains TEN10 probiotics, each of which is specifically chosen to assist in healthy digestion in dogs
- It is formulated for dogs specifically – it is designed to survive low pH environment, which is closer to that of a dog’s stomach
- Convenient and easy to use – unlike a messy power or tricky pill to swallow, you simply spray it directly onto the food
- It is a shelf stable liquid you can store, guaranteed viable through to the Best Used By date
When trying out Liquid Longevity, I was thrilled that our Taffy hasn’t reacted a bit to me spraying her food with it, which tells me that it doesn’t have enough of a taste to bother her tendencies. (And she happens to be a pretty picky eater!) What I HAVE noticed is that her “potties” are more consistent and regular, which is great for dog and owner alike, am I right? Plus, with the option to order Liquid Longevity off their website and have it shipped right to you, it fits in our “order it online and have it shipped to our doorstep” lifestyle perfectly!
However, as much as we love Taffy the white doggie, she has a few bad habits. One of them being catching and eating lizards while she’s outside and then coming back inside the house and vomiting lizards said lizards all over said house when they don’t sit in her belly properly. Can I just say that she hasn’t done that ONCE since I’ve been adding the Liquid Longevity to her food? At first, I thought she had finally sworn off eating lizards…but, she has NOT. I really believe the Liquid Longevity has improved her digestion so she can handle those nasty little creatures! (Which is good? Or bad? I’m not sure which!)
Overall, I’m thrilled with the product, and for having one more way to keep Taffy involved as a member of the family!
Do YOU have a dog that could benefit from this product?
