    Probiotic recommendation

    My dog decided he wanted to eat the pigs' tube of Bene-bac, which we got from a vet I refuse to return to. Anyone know if Benebac can be bought w/o going to a vet, or if there is a recommended OTC probiotic gel? My pigs loved the Bene-bac and happily ate it. I saw Benebac on Petco's site but the tube looks nothing like the one I had.

    Benebac CAN be purchased over the counter. I've always gotten mine in the gel form that's like a big syringe from Amazon. You can also purchase the 1lb tub which I think goes a lot farther, but has to be mixed.

    Most pet stores also sell it, but usually in powder form. I always used the big syringe from Amazon.

    Yeah I had the tube...or whatever you want to call the one with the spinny top. It said Benebac but was green with drawn pictures of dogs/cats. I already pitched the container since my dog thought it was SO tasty even tho its been sitting on the floor next to the pigs' cage since I got it in February.

    The probiotic I had for Bruin from our regular vet was powder. That worked well, but the pigs happily eat the gel right from the tube.

    It came in the mail yesterday and Little Bear/Gimbly love it. I don't really know how much to be giving them (tiny amount obviously) and they really love it. They try to yank the tube from me.
