Watch on demand now to learn how postbiotics can be an integral part of canine diets to help keep pets healthy.
Postbiotic ingredients contain beneficial bioactive compounds that can be useful to promote immune health. Research has confirmed postbiotics could help maintain a healthy immune system, support the digestive system, and balance the microbiome in our pet’s gut. Most of our pet’s immune system is associated with their gut. Therefore postbiotics can be an integral part of canine diets to help keep pets healthy. Featured speakers include Briana Kozlowicz, PhD., Program Manager- Microbiome, Cargill Health Technologies, and Sharon A. Norton, PhD., Director of Companion Animal Research, Diamond V/Cargill Health Technologies.
