    Default Fido-Vite

    Has anyone heard of this? I have several people on my lab board that swear by it and my daughter's lab has frequent bouts with loose stool. I was thinking of giving it a try to see if it helps. I'm guessing that most of the people recommending it do not feed RAW so I wasn't sure if it would be a benefit or not. Thanks.

    I do for my dogs but my daughter does not. Her dog has such a hard time with even organ meat.....it has to be very small amounts at a time.

    Tripe has some amazing properties and has helped dogs with digestive issues, just feeding a tiny amount with each meal because of the natural

    Lactobacillus Acidophilus,that is has in it.

    Tripe is great for sensitiv tummies - I would definitely work on it. It really helps heal the gut.

    i'm on that board too and as a raw feeder i'm not crazy about all the ingredients.

    I would definitely do tripe or an actual refrigerated pro-biotic since fidovite seems to have a lot of other stuff in it.

    seems to be a good supplement for kibble feeders though so I would consider it if I didn't feed raw

    LOL, another lab board member here. I thought of Pete as soon as I saw this thread topic...

    To be honest, I haven't even looked to see what all is in the Fido-vite. I'm wanting to say there is a raw feeder on the lab board who uses it, I thought IndyBindy posted that she had ordered some?

    I agree about the tripe, and I give one of my dogs a probiotic, but that is to help prevent yeast issues that he is prone to.

    Maybe they should pay him a commission. I will tell her to try the tripe....he already gets probiotics.
