Profauna 100 The Cost Effective Choice

DON’T JUST LOOK AT PRICE.  LOOK AT THE COST PER BILLION CFU

When buying anything, what’s one of the first things we all tend to look at?  Yep, the price! 

When evaluating a probiotic for your dog you should take a deeper dive in your price comparison and actually calculate the price you’re paying per 1 billion CFUs, not just cost per dose or serving. 

You will also want to look at how many doses the brand is recommending per day, and if you’ll need additional items such as pill pockets to conceal the probiotics because this can add to the “price”.  You may be surprised to discover you’re actually paying too much per dose for your dog. Here’s a simple calculation to help you figure out the cost per billion CFU for your probiotic and you’ll also find a comparison chart of Profauna 100 and some other leading dog probiotics below.

  • Price of product divided by the number of tablets, capsules, or scoops available in the bottle = the Cost per tab, cap, or scoop
  • Cost per tab, cap, or scoop divided by the of billions of bacteria per serving or dose = Cost per billion

Example

Profauna 100 is $39.99 / 30 powder scoops per bottle = $1.33 per scoop

$1.33 per scoop / 100 = $0.0133 cost per billion CFU.

That's just over a penny (or cent) a day
