PROTEXIN Soluble is a biological product which helps to ensure a beneficial balance of digestive tract micro-organisms. It is a multiple-strain probiotic powder safe for use in all animals.• PROTEXIN Soluble has a broad-spectrum action because it contains nine different organisms. Probiotics are very sensitive and can be destroyed by heat and stomach acids. But PROTEXIN Soluble is made by a special process to ensure full potency at time of use: the organisms are first freeze-dried and then enclosed in a protective coating.
• It is a completely natural biological product which helps to boost immunity. This in turn enables the animal to resist the effects of stress and infections.
• At birth, the digestive systems of young animals are normally sterile. It is important for the animal to quickly establish a normal stomach flora to prevent pathogenic organisms getting a foothold, because within hours of birth bacteria will start to colonise the gut. PROTEXIN Soluble with its beneficial bacteria should be given before these other, possibly harmful, bacteria establish themselves in the gut of the young animal. The beneficial bacteria will multiply, exclude the harmful bacteria, and establish themselves in the digestive system, thus giving the animal a head-start in life. This good start will help to maintain healthy growth and keep the animal in healthy condition throughout its life.
• PROTEXIN Soluble also aids in the control of scours (diarrhoea) of non-specific or dietary origin.
• PROTEXIN Soluble should always be used during and after antibiotic therapy to restore stomach microflora (which are destroyed by antibiotics).
PROTEXIN Soluble should be used:• During the first few weeks after birth.
• Before, during, and after stress situations (e.g. changes in food, environment, transportation, or surgical procedures).
• To mothers before giving birth and before and during weaning.
• As a routine follow-up to antibiotic therapy.
• Regular use helps to prevent gastric disturbances and keeps animals healthy.
