There are also other ways in which these helpful bacteria get diminished: chemicals from the surrounding, antibiotics that not only kill harmful bacteria but also the probiotic bacteria that live inside the body, age related degradation, when the diet is not composed of necessary vitamins and minerals and also stress and anxiety. These factors can greatly affect the health of your pet.
