Protexin is a multi-strain Probiotic for animals. It comes in the form of a white soluble powder. For Gabi I use 2 grams (half a medicine measure) daily.
Reason for use:
Gabi seemed to be having digestive issues. She had very loose stools. She gagged a lot and was very gassy. Her tummy also made a lot of noises.
“Add and mix into milk, milk replacer or water, or simply sprinkle over the animals food.” (Instructions on box)
At times I’ve had trouble getting her to ingest the powder dissolved in water. She ate it in peanut butter, but I thought it would be to fatty to use on a daily basis, especially when she has stomach troubles. I also didn’t want to use milk, because many dogs are lactose intolerant. I have found she will usually lick the powder off my hand. When she doesn’t want to lick it, I just sprinkle the powder over her kibble and it eventually gets eaten.
After two weeks, I am very satisfied in the results so far. There is already an improvement in her stool. She also seems to be gagging a lot less and is far less gassy. Her tummy is also less noisy. I will continue using this as a daily probiotic supplement long after her tummy troubles is a thing of the pas. I would definitely recommend this product to my friends.
Protexin is readily available is South African pet stores as well as several online pet stores.
