Promoting Digestive Health in Puppies: Essential Supplements for New Puppy Owners

Welcoming a new puppy into your home is a joyous occasion, but it also comes with the responsibility of ensuring your furry friend's health and well-being. One of the most common challenges faced by new puppy owners is related to digestive health, such as loose stools and persistent parasite issues. Puppies have developing immune and digestive systems, and providing them with extra support is crucial to their overall health and happiness. At Down Home Doodle, we want to empower you with knowledge about essential supplements that can promote your puppy's digestive health and help address common concerns. Here are our top recommendations:

Diatomaceous Earth:

Diatomaceous earth is a natural and effective supplement for addressing internal parasites and supporting digestive health in puppies. When choosing diatomaceous earth, opt for a food-grade product to ensure its safety for your puppy. The recommended dose for puppies is 1/2 teaspoon per day, mixed into their food. However, it's important to consult your veterinarian to determine the appropriate dosage based on your puppy's size, age, and specific needs.


Certainly! Here's a revised version that includes a list of ingredients:

Juru Gut Support is a specially formulated digestive support supplement designed to promote the well-being of dogs and puppies. Packed with essential nutrients and natural ingredients such as: woodworm, sage, kelp, black walnut and psyllium husk. This product aims to bolster digestive health by aiding in the maintenance of a healthy gut flora, soothing digestive discomfort, and supporting optimal nutrient absorption. By incorporating Juru Gut Support into their pets' daily routines, owners can potentially help alleviate digestive issues, enhance nutrient uptake, and contribute to overall digestive wellness for their beloved furry companions.


Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that play a key role in maintaining a healthy balance in your puppy's gut flora. By aiding in digestion and bolstering the immune system, probiotics can help reduce the occurrence of loose stools and support overall digestive health. Look for a probiotic supplement specifically formulated for puppies, and consult your veterinarian to ensure it contains the appropriate strains and dosage. Typically, the recommended dose for puppies is based on weight, so follow the dosage instructions provided by the manufacturer or your veterinarian.

Before incorporating any new supplements into your puppy's diet, always consult with your veterinarian. They can provide personalized recommendations based on your puppy's individual needs and health status. Additionally, it's crucial to provide your puppy with a high-quality diet that aligns with their age, size, and breed.

By prioritizing your puppy's digestive health and integrating these essential supplements into their diet, you can lay the foundation for a lifetime of good health and vitality.
