Protexin paste is a blend of viable microbes which benefits the host animal by improving the intestinal microflora balance. This optimises digestion of feed and enhances the animals health naturally. These microbes are safe, non toxic and residue free. Each gram contains 180 million CFU as:
Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus delbrueckii subspecies bulgaricus, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Enterococcus faecium, Streptococcus salvarius subspecies thermophilus.
Protexin may be used in period of stress (stresses disrupt the normal intestinal balance) eg. Overcrowding, pregnancy and lactation, scouring and diarrhoea, temperature extremes, transportation, training and exercise, loss of appetite, after surgery, birth, vaccination, weaning and worming
Protexin Paste should not be used in conjunction with Penicillins, Cephalosporins, Tetracyclines, Avoparcin, Gentamycin, Lincomycine, Streptomycin, Tiamulin or Tylosin, but may be used immediately following these antibiotics to re establish the normal gut microflora.
