Protexin is a powerful probiotic to improve the microbial balance in the intestines. Protexin is particularly useful for puppies and kittens to establish normal gut microbes following antibiotic treatment. Protexin is useful any time there is a gastrointestinal upset eg. vomiting/diarrhoea, and in times of stress.
Protexin Powder (green label) ContainsIn feed formula containing 60 million colony forming units CFU/g.
Protexin is the most advanced multi - strain Probiotic in the world today.
Unlike many other Probiotics that consist primarily of a single strain of bacteria, Protexin consists of seven different naturally occuring bacteria. The effectiveness and synergy of these strains has been proven in years of trials and production application.
The uniqueness of Protexin is not just confined to its multi-strain formulation. Research and Development has produced a special "protection" to ensure the highest possible numbers of bacteria survive the journey through the hostile conditions of the crop or stomach, into the gut where they rapidly begin to work for the benefit of the animal. Protexin's introduction to Australia makes it the first and to date, the only nationally registered Probiotic approved for administration to animals and birds.
What is a Probiotic and how does it work?
The digestive system of all animals and birds is home to literally billions of bacteria and yeasts referred to as Microflora.
Microflora are essential to the health of any animal; aiding the digestion, breaking down cellulose and other indigestible substances; helping the synthesis and absorption of vitamins and minerals; stimulating the immune system and preventing the proliferation of pathogens. (Pathogens reduce nutrient absorption, animal performance and cause disease).
Some of the Benefits of using Protexin include:
Improved Utilisation of Food
Achieved by increasing the efficiency of the existing digestive processes and/or by promoting the digestion of previously indigestible substances.
Reduced Intestinal Dysfunction
This includes treatment and control of scouring or diarrhoea and the exclusion or suppression of pathogens E.Coli, Salmonella, and Aeromonas spp.
Generated by increasing resistance to infectious diseases either by direct antagonism or by stimulating immunity.
Establishment/Re-establishment of Microflora
For the establishment of healthy gut microflora in immature animals or the re-establishment of gut microflora following antibiotic use.

A Miracle Product for our Spoodle28 July 2014Protexin has proved to be extraordinarily effective and solving a problem of ongoing digestive problems in our six year old spoodle which had led to frequent bowel problems, loss of weight and nervous behaviour. We had had some success using Thrive D but Protexin is more effective an easier to administer mixing fairly easily with food.
