There are few things worse than your pet having an upset tummy. In fact, one of the most common reasons for visits to the vet is due to digestive disorders.

The more common complaints - like excess gas, vomiting, constipation or even diarrhoea - could be caused by an imbalance in their gut microbiome. As in humans, dogs and cats have a digestive tract that contains billions of microbes and other microorganisms — 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. They have found that a pet’s gastrointestinal health can be positively impacted by nutrition.

Hill’s Prescription Diet Gastrointestinal Biome helps to balance your pet’s unique gut microbiome and influences the transition between disease and health.

It is these insights into gut microbiome health and nutrition that has shown us that incorporating a specific blend of fibre-rich ingredients and prebiotic fibre, will support and nourish this pre-existing gut ‘ecosystem’ — the microbiome.
