    I love the digestive enahncer from Nature's Farmacy. My dogs did really well on it and it lasted quite a while. It's supposedly micro-encapsulated for a longer shelf-life which is why it doesn't have to be refrigerated.

    I've also had mine on ShowStopper (Animal Naturals) It does ok. I buy it because it seemed like "the most bang for your buck" since it's a joint/coat/digestive system/etc supplement. I might switch back to using a couple different supplements though. I really liked the Nature's Farmacy products.

    I use Nancy's plain yogurt and everyone seems very happy with it. It's cheap - all the dogs digest the little bit they get every other day just fine.

    I make plain homemade yogurt and it seems to do Orson good and very cost effective :)

    I am very interested in this subject since I have a dog with IBD- I have started him on probiotic miracle by nusenta- it is a powder that does not have to be refrigerated- only been giving for 3 days so can't say much yet. Also I have been looking at only natural pet GI support from only natural pet store which is probiotic with digestive support. I take culturelle which works well for me- if I gave this to my dog how much- a whole capsule- he is 15 lbs.
