WHAT SHOULD I BUY?
Probiotics are very delicate since they are technically living organisms, so be sure you're not just grabbing something random off the shelf.
Although probiotics can be found naturally in some foods such as yogurt and bananas, giving something that your dog would enjoy taking is the best way to go.
Also, give your dog a supplement that offers a variety of strains of beneficial bacteria.
