The product is highly palatable and is suitable for dogs, cats, rabbits and other small animals and is designed to help support normal digestive function, while maintaining a sufficient level of fibre in the body.

Profibre is a pelleted product for addition to the daily food of dogs & cats.
Containing fibre from several sources. Many modern dog or cat foods and methods of feeding often leave the dog or cat with insufficient fibre in its diet which may lead to alimentary problems, especially in the hind gut. It is suggested in some cases that impaction of the anal glands may be the result of insufficient dietary fibre.
The beneficial microorganisms contained in this product occur naturally in the gut of all healthy animals. Probiotics colonise the gut and help exclude potentially pathogenic bacteria. The fibre content of Pro-Fibre is multi-sourced and comprises both digestible and indigestible components. Higher fibre diets produce an increase in stool diameter which is important in triggering the emptying of the analsacs during defaecation.
Pro-Fibre is a palatable pellet containing:
Given daily, Pro-Fibre can help to promote efficient digestion and avoid the problems associated with insufficient dietary fibre.
Add to the daily food for as long as considered necessary or as advised by your veterinary surgeon (measure enclosed).

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Protexin Pro-Fibre, including answers from our team.
Border terrier owner mags
I have 2yr old male border terrier on Chappie WET food which is high in fibre but he is wanting to eat grass a lot then some times is sick would this product be any good for my dog
There are a number of different reasons why a dog might eat grass and a lack of fibre in the diet is one of them. It would be a good idea to try your dog on this supplement and it may help. Either way I would always recommend feeding a probiotic such as this on a daily basis to keep your dogs guts healthy.
You say below that the product is free from cereal grains but the ingredients list wheat feed and wheat bran - how can this be when they are both from the wheat grain? I'm asking due to my dog's diet/allergies?
Thanks for your question. I have spoken to Protexin and they say that they wouldn't recommend this for any animal with wheat/grain allergies as it does contain wheat feed and wheat bran.
Hope this helps.
Can my diabetic dog have this, as was concerned about the sugar beet content, he has twice daily insulin jabs, thanks.
It would be best to check with your own vet first but if your dogs diabetes is well controlled this supplement should not cause a problem. The amount of sugar in the probiotic is minimal compared to your dogs daily food intake.
We have been given a sample of this from our vet as our shiatsu has problems with his anal glands and has to go every month t o have them cleaned out it seems to be working but can he take this continually with no side effects
Yes it is perfectly safe to give this supplement long term and in fact that is really its intended use.
My cat have hyperlipidemia.
is it safe feeding my cat everyday?
This product is not high in fats so is very unlikely to cause a problem for your cat if given everyday.
My cat has Inflammatory bowel disease and is on a home cooked diet, she is allergic to grain. Would this product be suitable for her. We have tried tinned pumpkin, but she isn't keen.
This product does not contain any cereal grain and it should be ideal for your cat. However it is not possible to say with certainty that your cat will not react in some way to any of the ingredients, but that is the case with anything you try. Chances are it will be fine. Cats are of course notoriously fussy and she might not be keen on this either, but it is carefully prepared to be as palatable as possible. If you do try it, give just a very small amount at first and build up gradually to the amount needed to get the effect you want.
My dog has recently had GI resection surgery and now has short bowel syndrome, I currently give him synbiotic daily and am wondering if this supplement would be beneficial and if it can be combined with synbiotic or if I should only give one or the other? Thanks
These products can be used together if you wish. The response is difficult to predict and will be affected by just what state your dog's intestine is in now. It is safe to try them and see what sort of response you get. The intestine might take a few days to adapt to any change which you make, so do not expect an immediate result.
Hi would this product be suitable for my diabetic cat, who is currently in remission. No insulin, high protein diet, now constipated. She had an enema on Tuesday, I would like to find something more natural to add to food.
From what you have said, this is an appropriate product to add to your cat's diet and there is a good chance it will help the digestion. I would continue with the high protein diet too.
HI, I bought this product hoping that it would help my cat with extra good bacteria to stop her diarreah. I'm not sure if it's working as she seems to have more diarreah than before. It comes under probiotics and one of the reviews said it help her cat's diarrah to stop. That's why I bought it but now am worried I'm making things worst?!?
Diarrhoea can be caused by a great many different things and most cases tend to respond to similar basic treatments. However, that does not mean that every case will be helped by any particular thing, there is always some variability. Personally for cats I would not use a probiotic with extra fibre added; I think Protexin Pro-Kolin Enterogenic would be a more suitable supplement. If your cat is otherwise bright and well, I would combine that with a reduced food intake for a few days. It is very easy to overload the digestion when it is upset and by giving it less work to do, ie less food to digest, it can get back into control more quickly. I would have the amount of food given per day for a few days, and divide this into several small snacks per day. Each snack should consist of much less food than the cat wants to eat - you should not put so much down that it does not eat it all, even if it seems to be eating very little. It really does help to restrict the amount of food going in for a few days. If at any time your cat appears unwell in some other way in addition to having diarrhoea, such as being subdued or vomiting, then you should take it to your vet.
My 1yr old collie has been diagnosed with colonitis which occurs when she becomes stressed or upset. She has been taking yumpro bioactive tablets to maintain a healthy gut for around 4 months but her stools are still quite loose sometimes. Would the added fibre in this benifit her? Thanks.
This might well make a big difference, but you will have to try it to find out. The digestive process, especially in the large bowel, can be significantly affected by the amount of fibre present. I would certainly suggest trying this product, or alternatively trialing completely different diets instead. The Pro-fibre often does work in this sort of situation in fact.
