Does anyone use a daily probiotic in guineas water for daily consumption of vitamin C and friendly bacteria with dextrose for digestive support ?

It's to assist the natural gut flora. I bought some when milo was sick infact yesterday morning but it was to late to start using it.

Is it something others do, something that would be a food thing to use to ensure they have a healthy gut ?

It should not be necessary if piggy is otherwise healthy, has a good hay based diet and a good variety of veg including vit c rich veg. It has its place if a piggy has a digestive upset though.
It’s not recommended to add anything to their drinking water in any event.
Overdoing giving vitamin c (considering they should get all they need from their hay, vegetables as well as it being present in fortified pellets) can also cause health issues as if the level drops, even if it drops to otherwise normal levels, can cause scurvy symptoms If their bodies become used to receiving higher than necessary levels.
