Bernie’s Perfect Poop helps battle depression in dogs
When your dog suffers from depression, it makes you sad too. Our dogs are the lights of our lives, and when they’re not happy, we want to help. Bernie’s Perfect Poop can help address factors that cause depression in dogs.
- Good dog gut health is critical for your dog’s mood and to reduce depression. The gut is often called a ‘second brain’ as it makes many of the same neurotransmitters that the brain does. These neurotransmitters—serotonin, dopamine and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)—play a key role in your dog’s mood and depression. A dog suffering from depression may lead to more serious health conditions, so good dog gut health is vital.
- Food and diet impact your dog’s mental health and mood. Dogs suffering from depression may not even have appetites, and won’t receive the nourishment they need. Or, if he’s not able to digest and process the food you’re giving him, his gut health will not be as strong as possible. This can affect how his mental health is regulated, and poor gut health can look like depression in your dog. Bernie’s helps your dog digest his food better, and helps his gut be a healthy microbiome for better mood regulation.
- Quality fiber supplementation helps your dog digest his food and feeds helpful bacteria in his gut. Good bacteria feed off the waste of quality fiber and create a healthy microbiome. The perfect combination of Miscanthus grass, pumpkin and flaxseed in Bernie’s gives your dog the fiber they need to battle depression and stay his happy, healthy self.
- Bernie’s Perfect Poop combines prebiotics and probiotics to help create a perfectly balanced gut microbiome. Research continues to show the bi-directional communication between a dog’s brain and his gut (the gut-brain axis). A healthy gut can battle depression by ensuring your dog’s brain is producing balanced hormones for mood regulation. If your dog’s gut is imbalanced, harmful bacteria disturbs important gut-brain axis communication, and you may see lethargy and depression in your dog. The prebiotics and probiotics in Bernie’s encourage the best dog gut health for the best mental frame of mind for your dog.
- Each cell in your dog’s body needs nourishment and nutrients. If your dog is depressed, there is a likelihood he doesn’t have an appetite and doesn’t want to eat. This means he won’t get the nutrition he needs to keep his gut and his body healthy. Even if you are able to get him to eat, if he doesn’t break the food you give down, he won’t get the right nutrients. The combination of enzymes in Bernie’s helps break the food you give your dog down and encourages optimal nutrient absorption. Healthy bodies have healthy guts, and healthy guts ward off depression in dogs.
- Bernie’s Perfect Poop is a 4-in-1 combination of fiber, prebiotics, probiotics, and enzymes. Good dog gut health is the key to a happier, healthier life for your dog, and that is especially important for their mood and mental health. Many times, depression in dogs stems from poor digestion. Bernie’s helps balance the digestive tract and provide a better gut microbiome.
