What are the benefits of feeding dogs and cats Psyllium Husk?

You may have heard of the use of Psyllium Husk for horses and people, but what are the benefits of Psyllium Husk for dogs and cats?
Psyllium is a form of fibre made from the husks of the Plantago ovata plant’s seeds. In dogs and cats, it is mainly used to improve intestinal function and promote strong digestion. Because the soluble fibre supplement works by absorbing water in the intestines, contributing to the formation of a gel-like stool, it can help to regulate bowel movements. It is commonly used in dogs and cats to help with diarrhea and constipation, but it can also be beneficial in helping to naturally empty your dog’s anal glands to avoid any inflammation.  As Psyllium Husk absorbs water, free access to water should always be available and it is advised to monitor water intake.
As a prebiotic, Psyllium Husk may help to build a healthy colony of good bacteria in the gut.
If your dog or cat has any pre-existing health condition or is currently on medication, it is always advised to check with your veterinarian before adding Psyllium Husk to their diet.
Crooked Lane Psyllium Husk is premium human food grade and available in a convenient resealable pouch.
