    Here’s a cool blog post on probiotics:

    And another one on the mechanisms behind probiotics:

    Some (many…most?) supplements are bogus, especially those for pets. There’s an increasing amount of evidence that probiotics don’t fall in this category. However, any probiotic product you buy needs to have enough colony forming units (CFU) to be helpful. There is some debate about whether multiple strains are helpful, but the reality is that most products which list multiple strains really don’t have enough CFU of most of them to matter at all anyway.
