Can dogs take human Acidophilus pills?

I know they have doggie ones, but I thinking of giving Skylie one of my pills. I'm trying to stop her diarrhea. Her stomach is really messed up right now, so I have also given her yogurt and pepto.

The pills I have are called Acidophilus by Pharmassure

It contains Proprietary Blend - Lactobacillus acidophilus, 500 million CFU, Bifidobacterium bifidum, L. helveticus and S. thermophilus.


What do you guys think?

It's just fine.

You can give them anytime. Just don't give at the same time as antibiotics. You have to wait 2-3 hrs in between, or they'll cancel one another out.

You can also give her some (about 1/4 c) pumpkin (canned...NOT pie mix). I'd also try a bland diet...like boiled hamburger mixed with rice.

Thank you. I have her a mixture of pure pumpkin, white, and chicken as well. Hopefully things clear up soon...

You might want to try FortiFlora. I have been using it for about a month for Baxter, who always has problems with his stomach because he is constantly eating things, and it works wonders. I got it from my vet but believe it's available over the counter.
