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.

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

  • Brand Manager

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

  • Product Developer

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

  • Veterinary Advisor

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?

  • Customer Service Advisor

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.

Diabetic dog

Nik

Can my diabetic dog have this, as was concerned about the sugar beet content, he has twice daily insulin jabs, thanks.

  • Veterinary Advisor

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.

Safe to use continually

Margaret Atkinson

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

  • Veterinary Advisor

Yes it is perfectly safe to give this supplement long term and in fact that is really its intended use.

Suitable for cats with a grain allergy?

Glenys

  • VioVet Customer Since: October 2011
  • From: Cheshire, United Kingdom

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.

  • Non-Executive Director

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.

Suitable for SBS?

Hayley Moore

  • VioVet Customer Since: April 2016
  • From: Bedfordshire, United Kingdom

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

  • Non-Executive Director

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.

Cat in diabetic remission - suitable?

Julie Bailey

  • VioVet Customer Since: April 2011
  • From: Leicestershire, United Kingdom

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.

  • Non-Executive Director

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.
