Happier Bacteria = A Happier Pet!

The next big thing in skin care is finally HERE: Skout’s Honor’s NEW Probiotic Skin Care line for pets!  Pet parents, it’s time to “up” your animal’s grooming game…

The skin is the largest organ in the body. That statement is true for human, canine and feline. However, it isn’t as good at protecting us as we once thought, due to all sorts of environmental factors that can disrupt the skin’s natural balance.  Luckily, the skin has friends…lots of them.  Skin health is the result of a symbiotic relationship between the skin and the trillions of beneficial bacteria that call it home. When left in its natural state and perfect balance, the skin has the potential to provide all the protection we need against the most common ailments.

Unfortunately, daily life in an industrialized society and the products we use to groom our furry friends often disrupt the natural balance of their skin’s biome and can leave the animal susceptible to opportunistic pathogenic bacteria and an immune system that over reacts – often leading to excessive shedding, itching, dryness, hot spots and odor.

Medications can provide relief from the effects of a pet’s disrupted skin biome, but do nothing to help the cause, often leaving the animal in a vicious cycle of treat-and-repeat. The only true product solution to the problem of an unnatural imbalance is to bring the skin’s biome back to its natural state, in a safe and scientifically-proven way: the use of topical probiotics!

Topical probiotics are not designed to treat, cure or prevent any of the ailments listed above. They do not clean the coat or the skin. Instead, they work to rejuvenate, support and maintain the bacteria naturally found on the skin and allow these trillions of “good guys” to do what they do best: protect their home from the environmental damage and inflammation that causes skin and coat issues.

Think of it this way: Happier Bacteria = A Happier Pet! 

Here is a great example/testimonial of how the use of Skout’s Honor’s Probiotic Skin Care line can do wonders for your pet’s skin:

“We have tried everything from Vet-prescribed medications, to a variety of other over-the-counter products, and this is the ONLY thing that has worked to clear up my dog’s ongoing skin problem. The time frame for this before/after was less than a week. I love it!!!” – Jennifer Hively, pet parent

You heard us right. Skin Care for Pets is here, thanks to the ALL NEW Probiotic Skin Care/Grooming line from Skout’s Honor.  Finally, pet parents everywhere are realizing that keeping their pets’ skin and coat healthy is a must for ensuring their overall wellness.  

When the American Academy of Dermatology calls topical probiotics “one of the new beauty breakthroughs…” and companies like CliniqueColumbiaAndalou and Pacifica start to include it in their products, you listen. If you are a pet parent trying to do what’s best for your fur family, you wonder if that applies to them too. The good news is: YES!

Why do Probiotics matter for pets’ skin?

The skin is home to trillions of bacteria, some good and some bad. The good bacteria serve as the first line of defense against the environmental damage and inflammation commonly associated with excessive shedding, itching, dryness, infection and odor. Unfortunately, that environmental damage, commonly caused by over grooming, a dip in the pool, heat, wind, an over-sanitized environment and pretty much everything else a pup faces on a day-to-day basis also disrupts the natural environment on the skin (also known as the biome) and leaves our loved ones open to all of the ailments mentioned above. Ailments that, if the skin were left in its natural state, would not be an issue.

These problems are currently dealt with passively. Grooming products utilize everything from oatmeal to essential oils to deal with the negative effects of a disrupted biome but have done nothing to help revive and support the skin’s natural protective layer. Until now. Topical probiotics provide a scientifically-proven natural active solution for supporting and maintaining the skin’s natural ability to defend against and repair the damage associated with excessive shedding, itching, dryness, infection and odor.

When applied to the skin, probiotics make it difficult for harmful bacteria to take over and allow the good bacteria to flourish. This allows them to block-out opportunistic pathogenic bacteria and naturally calm the immune system. The result, a noticeably healthier-looking skin and coat in 2-4 weeks and the immediate gratification of knowing that your dog’s natural defenses are being supported in an effective and natural way!
