Bio-Sponge® FAQ

What is Bio-Sponge®?

Bio-Sponge® (DTO smectite) is referred to as an organo mineral as it is comprised of organic matter and minerals.

How Does Bio-Sponge Work?

Bio-Sponge® has a large surface area and when in close proximity to positively charged ions, it binds to them and will remove them from the digestive system. It’s because of this adsorption-effect that Bio-Sponge® can help maintain gastrointestinal function and health.

How Long Does it Take Bio-Sponge® to Work?

Bio-Sponge works very quickly after administration. If there is no noticeable improvement within 7 days, it's recommended to discontinue use. If there is improvement but the intestinal disturbance hasn't resolved, continue administering Bio-Sponge until the loose stool has subsided.

How Long Can a Dog Stay on Bio-Sponge®?

Some dogs consume a maintenance dose of Bio-Sponge® as part of their daily diet to maintain digestive health. For most dogs Bio-Sponge® is used until the intestinal disturbance has resolved but it can be used long-term if needed.
