Has anyone ever tried the brand Pearls acidophilus tabs? I was recommended these to re build my bulldogs immune system. I am always weary giving supplements for humans. Any insight would be great. Thanks!

I don't know. Dogs are a different species, their bacteria-flora, are very different from our own. Probiotics made for humans are not the same bacterial probiotics made for canines or other species. I'd suggest purchasing a probiotic blend made specifically for dogs. Most high quality probiotics for pets can be purcahsed at local retailers or health food stores that have a pet section. Whole Foods is a good place for this sort of thing or shopping online. I don't trust the crap at most pet stores as far as being anything of quality.

This sounds like good advice and makes. I can't add much more because I've never used the product on my dogs but it was recommended to me while I was talking an antibiotic to avoid digestive upset from an imbalance of bacteria in the intestine. I took the minimum dose and it gave me some very pronounced gastrointestinal problems - so it's powerful stuff.
