For cats and dogs the concept is the same, maintain the bowels in good health and keep a healthy bacterial flora contribute to “Repair and improve the immune system”; cats and dogs possess a digestive tract rich with bacteria which have the function to maintain a strong immune system and to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria.
