The gut is the largest immune organ in the body allowing absorption of food and nutrients while blocking bacteria and toxins. When the body’s natural defenses in the gut breakdown the digestive system can easily get out of balance. This commonly happens to dogs when they eat things they shouldn’t.
Canine Digestive Support by ForeFront offers a blend of probiotics and prebiotics to soothe the digestive system, encourage nutrient absorption, and support overall health. Canine Digestive Health also includes BeneCell™, a proprietary ingredient designed to support cellular growth and immunity, and promote overall wellness.
Canine Digestive Health is an chewable supplement designed to provide unique, highly efficacious technology to help balance and support proper digestive function in dogs.
The focal point of good health for both humans and animals is the digestive tract. The gut is the largest immune organ in the body, as its job is to allow absorption of food, while protecting against foreign elements like bacteria and toxins. Gastrointestinal problems in dogs are often related to their tendency to eat things they shouldn’t, and for this reason they need assistance. Forefront Canine gives our beloved pets the added insurance of protecting them from “bad” bacteria that can wreak havoc in their gut.

PRODUCT DATA SHEET
BeneCell™ –a proprietary blend of purified nucleotides and other essential nutrients. Nucleotides play a critical role in the body by accelerating the cell proliferation process (the production of new cells). The production of new cells allows an animal to recover much quicker from the type of stress it is under (performance, illness, disease, injury, etc.).
With approximately 70% of a dog’s immune system residing within the gastrointestinal (GI) tract it is a focal point for canine health.
Canine Probiotics – includes four canine specific probiotic Lactobacillus strains. These indigenous strains were cultured directly from dogs (in a non-harmful manner). Since they are host specific they can withstand the rigors of the canine digestive tract. Each digestive tract (human or animal) has a different pH, temperature, and ecosystem. Having a host-specific strain greatly increases the likelihood of those strains surviving in the complex digestive ecosystem. Most probiotics used in pet products today are derived from bovine, human, or yeast. These non-species-specific strains can find it very challenging to survive and grow in a foreign environment like the canine digestive tract.
Exciting new research indicates that a pet probiotic can promote:
- Overall gastrointestinal maintenance and health
- Maintenance of gut health
- Defense from emotional and physiological stressors
- Support for pets in less-than-optimal health, such as runts and shelter animals
Prebiotics – non-digestible foods that make their way through our digestive system help “good” bacteria (probiotics) grow and flourish. Prebiotics keep beneficial bacteria healthy. Prebiotics are not bacteria. They are specific nutrients, usually non-absorbable carbohydrates like fructo- and oligo-saccharides, which naturally occur in whole grains, fruits, and legumes.
Each chew of ForeFront Canine Digestive product provides 250 million CFU’s of probiotics. It is recommended to give 1 to 3 chews a day based upon the dog’s size and condition. During times of high stress or digestive sickness one additional chew can be fed per day to help your pet feel more comfortable. Once the condition subsides you can return to the recommended dosage as outlined on the product.
