Signs My Dog Needs More Fiber

1/30/2020

Your little munchkin probably gobbles their food and goes on their merry way to enjoy their day. However, did you know that most dog’s don’t get enough fiber in their diet? Adding more fiber to your dog’s diet will improve their digestive system and colon health plus help maintain a healthy weight for their breed.

Why does your dog need fiber in their diet?
Dog’s that eat a diet low in fiber often suffer from a variety of health problems that are specifically related to their digestive system. Most commercial dog foods contain fiber but it’s often not enough. Adding a high fiber supplement to your dog’s diet can prevent constipation, diabetes mellitus, and diarrhea.

Common Reasons Your Dog Needs More Fiber

  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Diabetes
  • Clogged Anal Glands
  • Obesity
  • Mucus In The Stool
  • Straining to Poop
  • Blood in Stool
  • Frequent Pooping
  • Toxins
  • Medication
  • Metabolic disease
  • Inflammatory bowel disease or disorders


Here are three excellent ideas to help add more fiber to your dog's diet:

  • Visit a veterinarian – The first thing you need to do is rule out if the symptoms of diarrhea, diabetes, obesity, and blood in the stool are not due to a serious disease or illness.
  • Improve your dog’s diet – Review your dog’s diet by writing down everything your dog eats in one day. If you feed your dog a commercial dog food read the label carefully to determine how much fiber is included in the ingredients.  Choosing a dog food that contains fiber is essential to supporting your dog’s overall health and especially their digestive system.
  • Add a supplement – Dogs that don’t get enough fiber in their diet through their food source can highly benefit from a supplement. Consider adding a fiber supplement to your dog’s diet to help them maintain a healthy digestive system.

As a pet parent, you need to provide your dog with a healthy diet to help maintain overall good health. A diet high in fiber prevents illness, diarrhea, constipation, and other health issues. Adding fiber to your dog’s diet helps improve your pets overall health.

Bernie’s THoughts on Fiber

Hey guys! Bernie here to tell you my pawrents got tired of looking at my poop every time! They would scrunch up their faces at the smell, but also because I think they saw weird things in my poop. At first, I thought maybe they liked looking at my poop so closely since I am their adorable fluffy baby, but I later found out they were worried about me!

My digestive system wasn’t working too good. I had a chunky looking tummy, which some people sometimes say fat, but I don’t like that word. But, I was chunky and I would some times have a difficult time pooping while other times my poop would be like water. My pawrents were confused at the weird changes so they decided to help me!

One day, I saw them put a small grass bit into my food bowl with my dinner. I thought they were trying to trick me into taking medicine or something, so I put my inspector gadget skills to work and sniffed that thing as soon as they put the bowl in front of me. Then, I was brave and decided to lick it! Wow! It tasted like cheddar cheese and I loved it! The best part is I get to eat one every day!

Soon after this yummy treat was placed in my bowl my tummy started feeling better! I’m proud to say I poop perfect poops every time now! My pawrents don’t even have to look to close anymore either!

You can have perfect poops too when you try Bernie’s Perfect Poop supplements!

Poop smarter, not harder furry friends!
 
Until next time,
