I just had a few questions about acidophilus...I did a search on it here, but the most I got from that was that it helps the GI tract? I was just wondering what it actually does, when you would give some/how much, and where you would buy it. I saw HedgeMom say in a post that it's something you should always had on hand, but wanted to get a bit more information on it. :)

It's basically healthy bacteria, and can be really beneficial if you use it after a round or antibiotics or such to get the gut flora back up and functioning.
You can buy the tablets in the vitamin/supplement section, like where they sell flax oil and glucosamine chondroitin and such. I haven't bought any but I think you can crush/grind the tablets and sprinkle the powder on the food. I'm not sure how much, or if you can overdose.
