ReguTum™ Fibre Care Powder for Cats & Dogs

ReguTum™ Fibre Care Powder for Cats & Dogs
500g Pot

  • 500g Pot £10.99

Description

Irregularities in bowel movements is a common complaint for dogs and cats, whether it be due to not getting enough fibre in their diet, from stress, over enthusiastic hunting/scavenging, or if they are just prone to the odd bout of tummy troubles.

ReguTumFibre Care is a high fibre prebiotic and probiotic powder formulated for comprehensive long-term support to encourage:

  • Healthy digestive function.

  • Normal anal gland function.

  • More regulated bowel movements.

Given daily, ReguTum™ Fibre Care is formulated to avoid problems that arise from insufficient dietary fibre, support the digestive tract, and is ideal for long-term use.

For short-term support and to firm up loose stools, we recommend using ReguTum™ Probiotic Paste.

How does it work?

  • Contains high levels of soluble and insoluble dietary fibre to assist with improving the bulk and consistency of stools to help regulate bowel movements and encourage the emptying of the anal glands.

  • Bentonite clay helps to absorb toxins in the gut and firm faeces. (Also making them easier to pick up!)

  • Prebiotics and probiotics help increase the number of good bacteria in the gut to aid healthy digestion.

  • Contains a range of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, B12, C, D, E and K to help nourish and promote better overall health of the digestive tract.

  • In a palatable powder form which can easily be mixed in to food for easy feeding.

Directions:

Mix directly into food. Divide the recommended amount evenly between the number of meals. If using dry food, a small amount of water can be added to the powder to help it adhere to the kibble if needed.

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding ReguTum™ Fibre Care Powder for Cats & Dogs, including answers from our team.

Amount

Tracey

Can you give this to kittens one weights less then 1kg and the other is over 1kg if so how much would you give them them

  • Website Content Developer

Hi Tracey,

Are your kittens fully weaned? If they are eating solid food, then I'd begin with a light sprinkle of the powder. If they have wet food, it should mix in fine, and if they have kibble, mixing it with a little warm water first to make a paste should help it stick to the kibble better. I think you could build up to around 1/4 of a scoop per day across their meals but as they're so small it will be a little bit more fiddly.

If they just need help for a short term bout of upset stomach, then theReguTum Probiotic Paste (15ml should be enough for both of them for a few days, if you use 1-2ml twice a day) may be an easier option :-)

Kind regards,

Danielle

Cat constipation

Katrina

Hi,

Would this help my lovely 14 year old cat who often passes hard stools. They aren't passed as often as they should be either.
He has low grade kidney disease so I guess it's constipation related to that.
He drinks fresh water and has high quality wet food but still struggles sometimes.
He seems to get tummy ache with it before it passes, and I worry.
Many thanks

  • Product Developer

Hi Katrina,

Thank you for your question,

I'm sorry to hear that your cat is having tummy and toileting issues, we would recommend a supplement that is specially formulated to help ease the costipation - our most popular product for this is Laxapet which is a palatable gel that can be given a few times a week for longer periods of constipation.

Once the constipation is under control, ReguTum Fibre Care can aid in maintaining normal gut health and regulating the consistancy of stools to help reduce the chance of future issues with constipation.

I hope this helps!

Gsd gastro problems

Louise haigh

Hi my almost 3 year old male GSD suffers from tummy flare ups he is currently on wainwright grain free kibble and chappie ( recommended by our vets) we also use pooch and mutt bought from viovet powder twice daily in his food. When he has the runs and sometimes sick we use reg u tum paste bought from viovet. Is the powder form something I could use daily to help him instead of the pooch and mutt? At my wits end as he suffers probably every 6 weeks but the vets just say to keep an eye or he has been tested and all clear. It can last for a week sometimes. He is fine in himself, still wants to play and eat apart from first thing. His tummy sometimes makes extremely loud noises on a morning which is when he can produce white foam. We can go months of him being ok and then like I say around every 6 weeks. Please advise

  • Website Content Developer

Hi Louise,

ReguTum Fibre Care is ideal for long-term use and I think it would be more beneficial to his gut health than the Pooch & Mutt product, as its sole purpose is to promote the health & function of his gut by supporting the 'good' gut bacteria he already has, improve consistency of stools and help to reduce loose motions. I'd hope that this could help either with the frequency or the length/severity of his upsets as it helps to improve the health of his gut lining over time.

You can still use ReguTum Probiotic Paste to give intensive support when he has a flare up. As you feed him kibble, I'd recommend mixing a very small amount of water with the powder before adding to his food, as this will help it mix in and not get left in the bottom of the bowl. You don't need to do this when feeding his Chappie, it will mix well into the wet food.

I hope the Fibre Care helps him - do let us know how he gets on! :-)

Kind regards,
Danielle C

Grass consumption

Suzanne Wynn

My Cockapoo Darcey wants to eat grass every few days. She is never sick and doesn't suffer from really loose stools. Will adding ReguTum fibre help her?
Also she does suffer with her anal glands, they need emptying every of months.
Darcey is on a semi-raw diet - Natures Menu.

  • Website Content Developer

Hi Suzanne,

Thanks for getting in touch. From your description of your dog's symptoms, she sounds like the perfect candidate for Fibre Care. Dogs will often eat grass to aid in digestion for a number of reasons but together with her need for regular anal gland emptying, it sounds like increasing her fibre intake would be beneficial.

You can mix it directly into her food and if she is fed multiple times a day, divide the recommended number of scoops to ensure she received additional fibre with each meal. If she can be fussy, you can introduce it slowly so she gets used to new flavours/scents while you increase the amount fed.

I hope it is helpful for her! Do let me know if you have any other questions - I'd love to know how she gets on :-)

Kind regards,

Danielle C.

Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency

Karen Emery

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

Would this be safe to give a dog with EPI?

  • Product Developer

Hi Karen,

Thank you for your question,

We would recommend speaking with your vet before beginning supplements with any pet that has a pre-existing condition, though ReguTum™ Fibre Care should be safe to feed. Probiotics are normally considered a beneficial addition to the diet for dogs with EPI as they help to maintain a healthy balance of good bacteria in the gut which aid in healthy digestive function (This is particularly important if your dogs has been on antibiotics). The addition of dietary fibre should also support the gut flora and help to bulk runny stools. Both of these are the primary contents of ReguTum™ Fibre Care.

I hope this helps!

Is this for cats?

Feline Care Cat Rescue

  • VioVet customer since 2013
  • From: Norfolk, United Kingdom

As cats do not have a dietary requirement for fibre (any plant-derived fibre that a cat might consume as part of a natural prey diet would be from the prey's stomach and will have already been partially if not completely digested) is there any issues with cats trying this product?
How does it compare to other probiotics such as fortiflora?

  • Brand Manager

Hi there,

Thank you for your question. ReguTum Fibre Care is also suitable for use in cats.

While they don't have a need for dietary fibre in the same way that we do, in cats that aren't fed a whole prey diet either through raw feeding or hunting, often benefit from a fibre supplement, which acts as a substitute for the indigestible fur and bones which would act like fibre, helping with optimal gut function.

The soluble and insoluble fibres in ReguTum Fibre Care can help with both constipation, and loose stools in cats, and can also reduce problems with hairballs.

Like FortiFlora Feline, ReguTum Fibre Care contains the same beneficial bacteria (E.faecium), and also contain a host of vitamins and minerals to support the health of the gut. It also contains prebiotics which support the good bacteria of the gut.

Where they differ most in terms of ingredients, is the bentonite clay and fibre, which are absent in FortiFlora. We include bentonite clay which binds toxins and helps to firm faeces when cats have loose stools, and we include fibre as discussed above.

Both products are highly reviewed and can be used long-term. Both can provide support for cats with loose stools and improve gut health. ReguTum Fibre Care can also be of benefit to cats with constipation due to the fibre content, and the bentonite clay may provide additional support for those with stomach upsets. FortiFlora is also advertised as a broad spectrum nuritional supplement, with benefits for the immune system also.

I think both supplements would provide good support to the majority of cats through their probiotics, vitamins and minerals, and perhaps long-term cost if you have many to care for would also play a role.

- FortiFlora is £14.99 and lasts one cat 30 days, while ReguTum Fibre Care is £10.99 and a pot would serve a cat for 50-100 days.

Our aim with our VioBrand products is to maximise product quality and benefit to pets while keeping prices as competitive as possible. We use minimal packaging and work directly with the manufacturer, which means that our overall cost is much lower, and we can pass on the saving :) so although the price difference seems big, it is because we can minimise extra costs and middlemen that can't be avoided when we supply other brands.

I hope this has been helpful. Do let me know if you have any other questions!

Kind regards,

Danielle C.

How long does it last?

Beth

Hi,
How many scoops can you get in each pot?
How many grams per scoop?

Many thanks.
Beth.

  • Brand Manager

Hi Beth,

A full scoop weighs 10g, so there are 50 full scoops in a 500g tub.

I hope this helps!

Profibre

Trevor Stevenson

Will the powder do the same as the pellets for my dachshund please?

  • Brand Manager

Hi Trevor,

Thank you for your question. Yes, ReguTum Fibre Care is formulated to provide the same support to your dog as the Pro-Fibre pellets.

Both products have a very high fibre content (their crude fibre content is 45%) which come from various natural plant sources, and helps to promote efficient digestion as well as bulk out the stools to trigger proper anal gland function.

The pre- and probiotics provided in each help to maintain a healthy balance of gut flora that aid digestion and gut health.

ReguTum Fibre Care contains bentonite clay, whereas Protexin Pro-Fibre contains kaolin clay. Both have excellent toxin binding properties and also absorb excess water to firm loose stools.

The products should both provide your dog with long-term dietary support - the biggest difference being that ReguTum Fibre Care comes in a powder form. We hope that this will make it easier to mix evenly into food.

I hope I've been able to answer your question fully - please let us know if you'd like any more information.
