Probiotic recommendation

I know I have posted this in the past but wanted to post again. Does anyone out there give their dog probiotics? If so, which one? I am thinking about switching from Geneflora but wanted to get some feedback before I do so.
Thanks

I like this kind:


http://www.onlynaturalpet.com/produc...ic/106008.aspx

Mainly because it comes in a capsule powder form and you can sprinkle a small amount to the meal or water, and it is also human grade and the same exact stuff they sell to humans, so I can take it as well. I usually sprinkle it on hers and then take the rest of the capsule myself. This company sells the EXACT same thing on the human aisle..its less expensive on the pet aisle though

I keep it refrigerated ...I think all if not most are supposed to be kept if the fridge

The most important detail is the concentration of “Colony Forming Units” of organisms, or CFU.
To provide a truly therapeutic effect, a product should supply at the very least 1-2 billion CFU per
serving. Do not waste your money on products that contain only several millions, or even just tens
of thousands. The second most important detail is how long the potency of CFU is guaranteed –
it’s better if the guarantee applies throughout the shelf life of the product rather than just “at time
of manufacture”.

here's the one I use. http://www.houseofnutrition.com/733739029133.html

Kodi gets O'Paws Digestive Performance by Oma's Pride. Very good quality supplement, and very palatable. He'll eat it, even if it's not sprinkled on food.

Pam orders from this company. She calls and talks to the guy who owns the company, and he really knows his stuff.

one pill daily, crushed . No other probiotic has the shelf life like this one , that's why Sabine recommends it. Use only human grade probiotics.if possible.
