Digestive Issues
in Dogs

The simplest signs of digestive problems in dogs are vomiting and diarrhea/constipation.There are many different types of digestive disorders so your vet may carry out tests to determine the exact cause of your dog’s problem. Causes can range from eating something other than dog food, to food allergies and intolerances, infections, or lack of digestive enzymes.

Types of Digestive
Problems in Dogs


Inflammatory Gastritis & Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Dog digestive problems caused by inflammatory gastritis and inflammatory bowel disease can have various type of symptoms, due to an overactive immune response in the lining of the stomach or digestive tract. While stress and dietary factors may play a role with inflammatory bowel disease, there are no known specific causes in the majority of cases.


Intestinal parasites

Stress, overcrowding, and poor diets are the most common factors involved with parasite overgrowth in dogs. Adult dogs on broad spectrum monthly heartworm preventative medications have much less of a problem with many of these intestinal parasites.


Food Allergies
and Sensitivities

One of the most common causes of digestive problems in dogs is inappropriate food sources, such as rich table food, cat food, garbage, and indigestible items from around the home and yard. Usually these dogs will have acute vomiting and/or diarrhea with a loss of appetite. Treatment will vary, depending on the diagnosed cause, but for simple digestive upset, dog owners may use oral-activated charcoal (a drug used for emergency treatment of poisoning) to help find toxins and prevent absorption.

Product Description

Good Digestion Formula is a 100% herbal formula designed to promote healthy digestion in pets on a daily, ongoing basis.  Good Digestion Formula contains a premium blend of high quality herbs that not only relieve symptoms of indigestion, but also promote digestive health long term.  Good Digestion Formula can be administered to animals suffering from poor appetite, constipation, nausea, gas, bloating, acid reflux and other symptoms of indigestion.  Good Digestion Formula may also be administered to healthy animals for maintenance support of ongoing digestive health.

Proper digestion is absolutely essential to longevity, healthy energy levels and overall vitality, both in humans and pets.  Unfortunately, poor diet, stress and other factors can contribute to impaired or sluggish digestion, along with a host of unpleasant symptoms.  Many commercial dry foods can be difficult for cats and dogs to digest, causing inflammation and poor digestion over time.  Constipation, gas, bloating, reduced appetite and abdominal pains are fairly common, especially in older pets whose digestion tends to weaken with age.

In addition to supplying a healthful, biologically appropriate diet, plants found in nature can provide the body with much-needed digestive support.  Warming herbs like Ginger help to stimulate digestion, while soothing herbs like Marshmallow and Slippery Elm provide calming relief of pain and inflammation.  Mixing these gentle, digestive herbs in with food is an easy, convenient way to ensure a long, healthy life in cats and dogs.

Good Digestion Formula contains a proprietary blend of the following herbs in a therapeutic dosage:

Alfalfa Leaf (Medicago sativa) is a nourishing, food grade herb that promotes healthy digestive function.  Herbalists would traditionally prescribe daily consumption of Alfalfa to help with poor appetite and indigestion.  Alfalfa contains digestive enzymes, vitamins and minerals that help reduce inflammation in the GI tract, gas and other symptoms of digestive distress.

Buckthorn Bark (Rhamnus frangula) is a gentle tonic herb that promotes digestion and relieves constipation.  Also called Alder Buckthorn, the bark of this tree was traditionally prescribed in Western Herbalism to help move along the digestive process when sluggish or constipated.

Cinchona (Cinchona officinalis) originates from the Andes of South America and is used to promote healthy digestion.  The bark of the Cinchona tree has been used to strengthen stomach function when weak or feeble, while relieving bloating and cramps.

Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is one of the world’s best digestive herbs.  Traditional Chinese Medicine hails Ginger as a very effective remedy for indigestion symptoms such as nausea, gas, bloating, hyperacidity, poor appetite, sluggish digestion and excessive belching.  The warming nature of this herb helps to gently stimulate the digestive process.  Ginger also possesses pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties.

Licorice Root (Glycyrrhiza glabra) is an ancient remedy that benefits digestion in many ways.  Licorice has been used to reduce inflammation in the stomach and GI tract, as in cases of gastritis and ulcers. The soothing action of Licorice also helps to control spasms in the GI tract and reduce abdominal pain.

Marshmallow Root (Althaea officinalis) is a soothing, mucilaginous herb that can be helpful in cases of heartburn, acid reflux, ulcers, inflammation in the GI tract and other symptoms of indigestion.  The mucilage present in Marshmallow root coats the delicate membranes of the GI tract, promoting the healing of inflamed or damaged tissue.

Milk Thistle Seed (Silybum marianum) promotes healthy liver function and digestion.  Milk Thistle is known to increase bile production, while stimulating the production of enzymes, thus aiding healthy digestion.  Milk Thistle also possesses anti-inflammatory properties that can be helpful in soothing digestive discomfort.

Slippery Elm Bark (Ulmus rubra) comes from the Elm family of trees and is typically found growing in North America.  Slippery Elm contains mucilage which is useful in soothing irritation or inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract.  Slippery Elm can provide significant pain relief in cases of digestive discomfort, while promoting healing of damaged or inflamed tissue.

Inactive ingredients are Purified Water, USP Cane Ethanol Alcohol 20%, USP Vegetable Glycerin.

  1. :

    This formula works better than other herbal blends I’ve tried. The ingredients seem really fresh and high quality.

  2. :

    Cooper has been getting this with his food every day for about two weeks. He seems to be doing much better, the indigestion cleared up and hasn’t come back yet.

  3. :

    This is just what my dog needed to get back to his old, happy self. Before giving Good Digestion Formula, my Chihuahua was always tired, threw up regularly and had diarrhea a few times a week. After giving this for a few weeks, his digestion has normalized and he’s doing much better. I will be trying other Prana Pets products after seeing how well this worked.

  4. :

    I give this to all my cats to make sure they are absorbing the necessary nutrients from their food. My younger, middle-aged and one elderly cat are all doing great on this so I will continue to give it.

  5. :

    We tried so many natural products to help our Boxer with his IBD symptoms and nothing really worked too well. This has helped the most by far, very impressive. Only took 5 days or so to clear most of his symptoms.

  6. :

    Bobby Jo used to always get sick even though we changed her food and tried all kinds of meds. Runny stool, gas, constipation-you name it! Since adding this to her daily routine we’ve seen she is happier and can eat without getting sick. Her bowel movements seem more regular and she isn’t suffering like she used to which is wonderful

  7. :

    My Maltese has always had weak digestion with diarrhea and vomiting happening almost every week. Stress makes it worse too. I started mixing Good Digestion Formula in with his food three weeks ago and his symptoms have basically disappeared. Awesome!

  8. :

    Cookie was farting to the point we were going to give her away. No, we could never do that, but she was driving us crazy.
    Now we are all happy.

  9. :

    Product came in 3 days from ordering. Easy to use. So far so goo.
