Risks and side effects of antibiotics
Antibiotics are used to treat certain bacterial infections. There are two different types of antibiotics used: antibiotics that keep pathogens from multiplying, and antibiotics that kill them. But giving your animal antibiotics to treat an infection can have some side effects. Antibiotics can cause allergies, fever and diarrhea, and can damage the liver and kidneys and weaken your pet’s immune system.
The effects of antibiotics compared to the effects of Probiotics
Antibiotics alter your pet’s intestinal flora, where infections arise and spread, by destroying bacteria or preventing them from multiplying. But antibiotics also present a risk: certain antibiotics destroy your pet’s natural and beneficial bacteria in addition to pathogenic bacteria. Probiotics do not act against the pathogenic bacteria in your pet’s body but rather aid the beneficial bacteria that fight infection. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that assist your pet’s natural intestinal flora to help it fight infections. Therefore combining these two treatments is great for your pet’s health because although antibiotics remain necessary in case of bacterial infection, they will be more effective, and will not upset your animal’s internal balance if combined with probiotics. Probiotics will remove all side effects created by antibiotics, increase their efficiency and prevent future infections.
