Water soluble formula containing 180 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).

Protexin should not be used in conjunction with penicillin, cephalosporins, tetracyclines, avoparcin, gentamycin, lincomycin, streptomycin, tiamulin or tylosin, but may be used immediately following these antibiotics.

Dosage and Administration
Dose at stress levels for the first five days, then dose at maintenance levels. Stress levels may be continued as long as required.

Stress levels (dose/day). Horses. 20 g. Foals. 10 g. Cattle, pigs, sheep, goats. 4 g. Calves, piglets, lambs, kids. 2 g. Dogs. 2 to 6 g. Pups, cats, kittens. 2 g.

Maintenance levels. Half the stress level dose.

Poultry. Chicks: 1 g/L drinking water; adult birds: 500 g/500 L drinking water. Caged birds. 1 g/L drinking water. Other species. Contact manufacturer.

Some of the Benefits of using Protexin include:

Improved Growth in Farm Animals
This is generally regarded as resulting from the suppression of a subclinical infection by a growth depressing micro-organism; such a mechanism has been described for antibiotic growth promotion.

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.

Improved Health
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.

Just the best Cheaper than the Vet!

By: on 28 October 2013

Recently purchased this product after extensive research online. My horses suffer from the lack of a good varied diet of grass because of drought and we have them running in a small paddock, although they are fed twice a day on good fresh lucerne hay plus triple mix chaff copra and pellets at night, one horse in particular had bad diarrhoea. Feed is expensive & he continued to look awful. I knew something had to be done. So I decided to give Protexin a go after talking to a racehorse owner and doing the research, the results are amazing have only been giving it to them for a week at the dose rate of 20g but now back to 10g. A happy horse again. I'm very impressed although its expensive well worth the money for the results. Mammoth Supplies are very competive price wise too. Thanks
