SELECTING THE RIGHT STRAIN FOR THE DESIRED BENEFIT
Selecting the Right Strain
Specific benefits from probiotics go beyond genus and species—you need to know the strain, too. Each probiotic strain has a specific job to do and may only work in certain benefit areas, so choosing the right strain for the right job is important.
Dogs and probiotics follow a similar taxonomy (genus, species, strain), and they each have a job to do.

You would choose a breed better suited for the job and the environment.
The same is true of probiotic strains. You cannot possibly know if the probiotic will get the job done without identifying the strain.
