Description

Protexin Pro-Fibre is a specially formulated dietary supplement rich in digestible fibre and probiotics. 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.

Now more concentrated, a 500g pot will last approximately the same length of time as an 800g pot making it an ideal product for long term use.

Product Information

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.

Pellet Contents

Pro-Fibre is a palatable pellet containing:

  • Multi-source fibre
    High levels of both soluble and insoluble fibre with new fibre sources including psyllium and sugar beet pulp. Pro-Fibre now has higher levels of dietary fibre (45%) to help bulk the stools out.
  • Probiotics
    The EU-registered probiotic Enterococcus faecium (NCIMB 10415) E1707, to help repopulate the intestine with beneficial micro-organisms.
  • Preplex prebiotics
    A prebiotic, consisting of fructo-oligosaccharide (FOS) and acacia (Gum arabic), to feed and stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria.
  • Artificial beef flavouring
    To improve palatability and compliance.

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).

45 Toilet Troubles
Verified Purchase

By on 6 April 2021

This definitely is worth giving a go, our dog has Anal problems due to food intolerances. We are using this as recommended by our vet whilst trying to find a food which suits. Her poo has definitely firmed up and it has been a month since our last visit to the vet and she is no longer scooting on the carpet and constantly cleaning herself. I will say that I was charged a exorbitant amount of money for this product by our vet so Full Marks to Viovet stocking good products at sensible prices.
I will be posting another review when our girl is comfortable.

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Protexin Pro-Fibre, including answers from our team.

8 months old cat who has constipation & scooting her bottom on the carpet. is it suitable for her?

Marcello Tomasini

I have 8 months old cat who has constipation, suffering cat flu & also she always scooting her bottom on the carpet. I'm sure that she haven't worms and fleas as de-worming on schedule. Due to she has constipation & car flu, so she've been taken "Purina Pro Plan Fortiflora" & "Flumax", seems improving a bit. However, she still scooting her bottom on the carpet & varies poo daily.

Can she have it with those supplement together? is it helps to stop her scooting?? thanks

  • VioVet Staff

If your cat is prone to constipation then I would avoid giving Protexin Pro-Fibre. The increased fibre it provides is great for loose stools but it will firm the constipated stools even further which may not be beneficial.
There can be many possible causes to scooting, including anal gland issues. I recommend discussing the problem with your vet so they can diagnose the underlying issue. If the anal glands are diagnosed as the underlying cause and there is no constipation present then Protexin Pro-Fibre can help to treat the issue.

Morning or Evening meal

Karen

Hi just received a tub of pro fibre after being recommended it by our vet to help with our Bulldogs anal glands. Daft question but do you suggest adding it to his morning meal or evening? Or does it not matter? Thank you.

  • VioVet Staff

Those dose can be given morning or evening or split between both meals, whatever is preferred. The only requirement is you need to make sure the entire daily dose is given within one 24 hour period.

Protexin for rabbits

Ky

  • VioVet customer since 2017
  • From: Singapore, Singapore

When is the expiry date and how frequent do i feed this to my rabbit please?

  • VioVet Staff

Unfortunately we cannot advise on specific expiries, but we guarantee the expiry date will be greater than 6 months from time of ordering.
This product should only need to be given if your rabbit has intestinal upsets, such as diarrhoea, or if advised by your vet. It can also be used in the long term to prevent intestinal problems.

Protexin pro fibre

Nicola Bailey

  • VioVet customer since 2018
  • From: Leicestershire, United Kingdom

I normally buy the 500g tub for my dogs. But can I buy the 800g tub for them, as this says for rabbits on and no mention of for dogs on the front of the tub - thanks

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Nicola,

The 500g is formulated especially for dogs, and contains an approved probiotic strain of bacteria to support their digestive health. The 800g Rabbit version contains a different probiotic is not approved for use in dogs - it's not an 800g version of the same product.

Protexin Pro-Fibre can be quite expensive, so we made sure we worked on our own version to help save customers money on their pet care. ReguTum Fibre Care is a powder rather than pellets, and is very similar to Pro-Fibre with high levels of fibre, pre and probiotics, but we have also included Bentonite Clay which is a binding agent, additionally helping to firm stools and also soothes the gut lining.

Each scoop is 10g, so the 500g pot contains 50 servings. It is likely to last the same amount of time as Pro-Fibre, but costs a couple of pounds less per pot.

I hope this is helpful!

Recommendation for elimination of fur balls in my cat who’s just undergone surgery.

Kiki

Hi, My cat who is 4yrs has suffered with constipation on and off for the last couple of years. We introduced probiotics, and tried protextin fibre which helped at the time. However, he had emergency surgery tp removed two fur balls from his small intestine two weeks ago, taking 10cms of his gut away. He’s on a high protein diet of wet food canagan of which we add water too and he does drink it too. After two lots of antibiotics which gave him diarrhoea, hopefully his tummy will settle as he is now back on the probiotics. What would you advise long term for helping with the fur balls? His poop was dark and he seemed to go every 2/3 days, we thought this was due to his high protein diet. He has had tests and nothing showing up. Would you recommend adding protextin in with his food daily? Or is there another product you would recommend? He does have a sensitive tummy so Im wary of giving him petroleum or grain products. Took us several months to find a food that he would happily eat, he doesn't seem to digest dry food which is another reason for putting him on wet food. Advice would be much appreciated?

  • VioVet Staff

Kiki,

The classic preventitive recommended by vets is Katalax but this contains paraffin. If you would prefer to avoid this then Logic do a product based on natural fish oils called Logic EASBALL. Hills and Royal Canin also manufacture hairball specific diets called Hills Science Plan Hairball Control Cat Food and ROYAL CANIN Hairball Care Cat Food respectively.
I hope this helps.

Colitis in dogs

Jon

hello, my GSD cross has started suffering from repeat bouts of colitis. I switched her food from a well known brand to Purina HA as my other dogs suffers from stomach problems (he already had these issues when rescued) and wondered if this powder would help her gut and colon ease and hopefully stop the flare ups. Many thanks. Jon

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Jon,

One of the dietary changes recommended for dogs with colitis is the addition of fermentable fibre, so a product such as Protexin Pro-Fibre would be ideal to try. It comes as a pelleted formulation for cats & dogs, and if you are looking for a powder version, we have a product called ReguTum Fibre Carewhich also provides a combination of soluble and insoluble fibre, to nourish the protective gut bacteria and improve stool consistency. It also contains bentonite clay, which helps to soothe the gut lining and can bind harmful bacterial toxins, and absorb excess water. Either would be good to try. With powder supplements and kibble, you can mix them with a small amount of water to form a paste and mix this into the kibble so it sticks, whereas the pellets can be eaten from the bowl, even if they are left until the end.

I hope this helps!

Kind regards,

Hi is it possible to mix it with cat food, or is it a certain food on it's own

Debbie

Hi is it possible to mix it with cat food, my cat has diarhea and I was told a high fibre diet is better for her ,plus I have to other cats and hoping it will be ok for them as well .
Cheers Debbie

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Debbie,

Protexin Pro-Fibre is a pelleted supplement, so it needs to be fed with your cat's normal food. You can mix it into either wet or dry food, but wet food will disguise it better, although the texture change will be noticeable. Lots of the reviews are from dog owners so there isn't much feedback from cat owners, but if your cats aren't fussy, it is worth trying.

We have a powdered product called ReguTum Fibre Care, which is our own brand version of Pro-Fibre, and this would be easier to mix in and disguise in wet food.

Whichever product you choose, if your cats are fussy, you could start with adding a smaller amount, and build up to the recommended daily amount so that they get used to any change in flavour/texture. Both of the above products can be used long-term to provide extra fibre, and good bacteria to help your cats' digestive systems.

For short-term support of digestive upset, you could try ReguTum Probiotic Paste. This will deliver a larger amount of beneficial bacteria to restore the balance of good bacteria in her gut, as well as bentonite which will help to absorb excess water to firm the faeces.

I hope this helps!

Kind regards,

Danielle

Can I give to my puppy 9weeks old

Sharan

Can I give to my puppy 9weeks old

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Sharan,

Thank you for your question,

Protexin Pro-Fibre can be safely given to puppies that are already taking in solid food as it is a natural supplement. You may also like to take a look at ReguTum Fibre Care, as this is also a fibre and pre/probiotic supplement which comes in a powder form instead of in pellets, and so may be easier to mix in to your puppy's food to feed. I have linked the page for it here.

I hope this helps.

Why is my dog eating grass more often

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

  • VioVet Staff

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.

Grain free?

Kate Bristol

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?

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Kate,

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.
