What is kefir?

Kefir is a fermented dairy product made from the milk of cows, goats or sheep that’s loaded with probiotics and has been known to support gut health.

In its most basic form, it’s made by mixing Kefir grains which are rich in good bacteria and east cultures, with the fermented milk. The potential health benefits of kefir for dogs and humans like include constipation relief, digestive support, and heart health.

If you’ve never given your pup kefir before, talk to your vet about how much to start with.
