Ask Dr. Dobson: Probiotics


My American Eskimo (Windy) needed urgent care treatment on May 29. She was diagnosed with gastroenteritis and given a week on antibiotics. Should I give her a probiotic supplement now, or will her system normalize by itself?



We hope Windy is doing well.  A probiotic will not hurt her, however, how long of a duration has she been off of antibiotics? What antibiotics were given?

It is recommended to schedule a follow up appointment for Windy. At this time, our doctor will consult you on future care and other recommendations.

Please call (801) 224-2233 to schedule an appointment.

Thank you
