Why should I use CanineCare Probiotic?
Our spray is a natural, safe way of treatment. All the ingredients in our product are good for your dog, you and the environment. They are natural, safe and effective. There is nothing harmful or toxic to your dog if they lick the product off however to prevent this from happening distract with food or exercise directly after spraying.
How do I apply CanineCare Probiotic?
Simply spray directly to the site of the minor infection. This is fairly easy with short haired dogs or on the belly but with long haired dogs you may need to assist access to the skin by massaging in. With paws, simply spray directly on, separating the toes gently if necessary.
There may be some discolouration if you have a white dog as our spray is a reddish/brown colour. It doesn't generally stain so once treatment has stopped your dogs hair colour will return to normal.
How fast will I see results?
There are many variables in the time it takes to see results. We have had reports of red inflamed skin changing colour to healthy pink in a matter of minutes, however most cases will take days or possibly weeks to see results. It can take time for the beneficial microbes to outcompete the pathogens causing the minor infection. Most cases we would expect to see results in a week or two. Your dog should be feeling more comfortable within days of starting treatment.
Is CanineCare Probiotic safe for puppies, older and immunocompromised dogs?
Our spray is perfect for all of the above. Natural, safe and gentle CanineCare Probiotic has no harmful ingredients.
What if my dog tries to lick the spray off?
There is nothing harmful or toxic to your dog if they lick CanineCare Probiotic off, but to prevent this from happening you can distract your dog with food or exercise straight after applying.
Can I use other products with CanineCare Probiotic?
We recommend not using other topical treatments with our probiotic spray. Many of these including natural oils, washes and creams will contain antimicrobial properties which will eliminate the “good guys” in our spray.
Oral medication may affect our spray so get in touch with us and our vet can assess these on a case by case basis.
What size bottle should I get?
