DiaHalt is a specially formulated probiotic paste that is highly palatable and easy to use. It combines three core ingredients that work together to help support gut function and aid in maintaining the natural microflora balance in dogs and cats.
- Bentonite clay is a natural binding agent that helps to firm up the faeces and supports the intestinal lining.
- The high level of probiotics in the form of Enterococcus faecium maintain a good level of beneficial bacteria in the gut.
- Fructo-oligosaccharides (prebiotics) provide nourishment for the probiotics and other friendly bacteria.
DiaHalt comes in user-friendly, calibrated syringes for simple administration. Either give directly or mix into food. Can be used alone or along with medication prescribed by your veterinary surgeon.
The oil base of DiaHalt preserves the probiotic bacteria, and they are activated only after they are ingested and reach the small intestine.

Alternative to canegest

I currently use canegest but it is quite expensive. Is this an alternative?
The precise ingredients are slightly different, but both products are used for the same sort of conditions and in effect they are equivalent alternatives to each other.

Hi, my dog seems to have a regurgitation problem left over from an unknown illness as a puppy, it flares up from time to time without warning and she struggles to keep food down for a couple of days, would this help her?
It depends what the underlying cause of regurgitation is. DiaHalt is more effective for intestinal problems than those affecting the stomach, though many conditions can affect much of the GI tract. DiaHalt is a mild and very safe product and will not do any harm, so it is perfectly acceptable to try it. I presume you have already tried different diets and feeding routines. Very often some foods are easier than others, and small, frequent and regular snacks are easier to manage than one or two big meals. I would tend to give good quality brands of dog food, based on chicken or fish as the main ingredients. If this persists, you should ideally have your vet investigate it to see if some specific treatment might be appropriate.

My dog suffers from pancreatitis and is having cimetidine. Can he still take probiotics?
Probiotics can be given to dogs with pancreatitis. It is often not clear exactly what triggers and episode of pancreatitis, but DiaHalt should not cause any trouble. There is however a possibility that DiaHalt could interfere with the effect of cimetidine if both are given at the same time. You should therefore allow at least an hour between giving DiaHalt and the cimetidine.

Hi My dog has developed colitis and has had 3 attacks in 3 months, poo's really runny and he's been sick. He's had antibiotics from the vet and canikur would this product be of any help to him.He on chicken-rice etc. he weighs 10kilo's and is a shih tsu.
We have found that DiaHalt is very effective in many situations like yours. It is not intended to be given continuously, just whenever there is a flare-up of trouble. Depending on the underlying cause this might well be safer and more effective than antibiotics, though every case is different. If your dog seems to be prone to regular upsets, it might be worth trying a different diet, but your vet can probably advise you about this too.
How much each time
13th Jul 2015
I am thinking of getting the 60ml but wondered how many mils would a large dog ( Labrador need to take per dosage?
I would give 5mls twice daily to an average Labrador bitch, or up to 7mls twice daily for any dog over 30kg bodyweight. The dose is not actually too critical and their is a lot of leeway either side. It always helps to reduce the food intake while diarrhoea is present. I would suggest several small meals per day of easily digested foods, and the total daily ration should be cut to about half what the dog would normally choose to eat. This usually helps the digestion to recover very quickly. Obviously you should see your vet if diarrhoea is persistent or the dog appears ill in any other way too.

Is this suitable to be given to puppies ?
if so, from what age and what sort of dosage?
This is suitable for puppies once they have been weaned off their mother. It is very palatable and they usually lick it off your finger happily. I would recommend you give it at a rate of 0.5mls per kg bodyweight twice daily. This is a very small amount if your puppy is very small, but it is a very safe product if you give slightly too much. If your puppy is greedy, it also helps to reduce the amount of food you give at the same time, though do not withhold food completely. Ideally give several small meals per day, but each meal should be a bit less than your puppy would choose to eat. The digestion settles much better if it is not overloaded with too much food, then your puppy will recover faster and get more benefit from the food it is eating.
