Would this product help in my situation?

Kyle Sinclair

  • VioVet customer since 2016
  • From: Midlothian, United Kingdom

Hi I have i rabbit and she gets diarrhea quite a lot maybe once a week or something and I have spoke with my vet and they said decrease her pellets, so I did but she still got it all the time so we went Back and they said she must just be prone to it so I was wondering would "fibreplex" help her if on the days she gets diarrhea I gave her a little bit of this would it help


  • Veterinary Advisor

Fibreplex would be helpful to restore normal digestive function when she has had diarrhoea and would be a perfectly acceptable product to use in this situation. You could also consider Protexin Pro-Fibre which is designed to be given daily and may help prevent the diarrhoea occuring in the first place if given consistently.

Can this be given long term

Eve Martin

Can this be given long term

  • Marketing Analyst

Fibreplex is designed to be used short term for animals with a reduced or absent appetite. There are a lot of calories in Fibreplex to supplement these animals whilst they have a reduced intake. Bio-lapis and Pro-Fibre for Rabbits are suitable probiotic supplements for long term use, as they do not contain extra calories and their administration is easier for everyday use.

Storage after opening

  • From: , United Kingdom

How long can it be kept after opening?

  • Marketing Analyst

Fibreplex will last until the best before date printed on the tube so long as the lid is replaced and the product is kept cool and dry. Sometimes the paste at the opening can dry out a little and needs to be removed, however the remaining product will still be viable. This is due to our probiotics being held in a dormant encapsulated state.
