There are few things worse than your pet having an upset tummy. Dr. Guy Fyvie is Hill’s Pet Nutrition’s veterinary adviser. He says that excess gas and changes in your pet’s poop can be very distressing for pet parents.
“Just like us, cats and dogs need a balanced gut microbiome and when this is out of sync it can lead to a troubled digestive system and a very unhappy pet.”
An ‘upset tummy’ includes vomiting, diarrhea, flatulence, weight loss, or constipation. These are all common signs that your pet may not be feeling well. A visit to your vet will help to diagnose what the issue may be and recommend steps to help your pet feel better. In fact, one of the most common reasons dog parents visit a vet is because of digestive disorders.
Dogs and cats (and our) digestive tracts contain billions of microbes and other micro-organisms — including both desirable and undesirable bacteria that are unique to each pet. With over a decade of research, Hill’s has become a pioneer in the study of pet microbiome health and has found that a pet’s gastrointestinal health can be positively impacted by nutrition.
“It is these insights into gut microbiome health and nutrition that has shown us that incorporating a specific blend of fiber-rich ingredients and prebiotic fiber, will support and nourish this pre-existing gut ‘ecosystem’ — the microbiome,” says Dr. Fyvie.
Support the Microbiome of Your Loved Pet
It is with this knowledge that Hill’s has developed food that promotes healthy stools in as little as 24 hours. Hill’s Prescription Diet Gastrointestinal Biome helps to balance your pet’s unique gut microbiome and influences the transition between disease and health. This new food provides pets with:

“This first of its kind nutrition has been made possible by science. Whether it’s conducting industry-leading research, analyzing nutrient levels in each of our products, or selecting optimal ingredients for your pet’s health, Hill’s is driven by science results you can see – in every little transformation,” concludes Dr. Fyvie.
