The digestive system plays a vital role in the health, vigour and performance of dogs, & horses. Its correct functioning is dependent on the level and balance of bacteria and yeasts called microflora.
Foals are born with a sterile gut which is rapidly colonised by both beneficial and pathogenic bacteria. A fine balance exists which can easily be disrupted, leading to scouring, ill thrift and other problems.
All dogs & horses benefit from Protexin's ability to stabilise intestinal microflora, maximise gut health and resist the effects of stress.
Stress, in all forms is one of the major causes of disruption to the normal balance of microflora in the gut, allowing proliferation of pathogens. Loss of appetite, picky eating, scouring, poor condition and changes in temperament are some of the less consequences. Stress is easily induced with some common causes being: changes in diet, heavy work or training, temperature extremes, breeding, transportation, worming, vaccinations and changes to environment.
Antibiotics are particularly harmful to gut microflora, leaving dogs & horses susceptible to re-infection. Protexin should always be administered following any course of antibiotics.
