Description

Protexin ProFibre for Dogs and Cats is a pelleted product for addition to the daily food of dogs & cats.

Protexin ProFibre contains fibre from several sources. Many modern dog or cat foods and methods of feeding often leave the dog or cat with insufficient fibre in its diet which may lead to alimentary problems, especially in the hind gut.

It is suggested in some cases that impaction of the anal-glands may be the result of insufficient dietary fibre.

The beneficial micro-organisms contained in this product occur naturally in the gut of all healthy animals.

Probiotics colonise the gut and help exclude potentially pathogenic bacteria.

The fibre content of Pro-Fibre is multi-sourced and comprises both digestible and indigestible components.

Higher fibre diets produce an increase in stool diameter which is important in triggering the emptying of the analsacs during defecation.

Please note that due to changes in the administration rates, the 500g tub will last as long as the 800g tub did previously.

Recommended by our vet for anul gland problems in our miniature long haired dachshund. Seems to help but our dog is a bit fussy on food. He would carefully throw all of the pellets out of his plate. Problem solved by crushing with a rolling pin and hiding the pellets under other food.

This has been a huge help for my rescue greyhound - no more "nervous tummy" problems and it's totally cured his anal gland trouble. I've tried other probiotics, but he won't eat them - he loves this one!

I have been buying this product for more years than I care to remember as a supplement to my Dog's diet. Having read many of the other latest reviews, I would agree that yes, the pot size has decreased and initially it didn't last as long because the manufacturers used the same style of serving spoon. However, now that the serving spoon has been changed to compensate for it now being a more concentrated product, from the way I'm using it, it lasts just as long as before. There have been no feeding problems or illness for my dogs since the manufacturers changed the product and I am quite happy to continue as I have been doing - unless any future changes start to disagree with my dogs.

Like everyone else has said this product is no longer what it used to be since it was "reformulated". It doesn't last anywhere near as long as the old one. Plus it doesn't seem to work any longer (my vet originally suggested it to help with anal gland problems). Since they changed it I have noticed the old gland problems are back. All it seems to do is create enormous poohs. I will not be buying this any more and I'm going to feedback to my vet as they are still selling it.

As everybody else has noted - the 500g pot does not last as long as the 800g. I have also noticed how much wheat is in this product. This can be an irritant to the gut so I will not be purchasing again as I buy gluten free dog food to avoid that problem.

I have bought this from VetUK for quite a few years ever since it was prescribed by my vet for anal gland problems. It also helps with a sensitive tummy.. However I am disappointed with it now, protexin have changed the formula.. My dog is very reluctant to eat it. It is a dark green colour too! Not sure about how long it lasts as I use less as they said so haven't finished the pot yet.Why oh why do manufacturers change what works.?
