Description

ReguTum™ Fibre & Probiotic Care has been developed to provide rabbits with digestive support in a range of situations. Our goal is to help you with their long-term digestive tract health, minimise dietary related upset and avoid associated complications. It is a perfect supplement to help the hindgut function as intended when fed with a forage based diet, rich in fibre and a variety of fresh leafy greens.

ReguTum™ provides rabbits with multiple sources of soluble prebiotic fibre and FOS (fructo-oligosaccharides) to help diversify and feed the bacteria they rely on to ferment (break down) fibre in their food, allowing them to extract the nutrients needed. It is also a rich source of a live probiotic yeast, S.cerevisiae, which is well documented for its ability to promote rapid repopulation of beneficial microbes after digestive upset or antibiotic treatment, and to support a stable gut environment. Beta glucans provide additional support to beneficial gut bacteria, aid in nutrient absorption and can help achieve a healthy weight.

ReguTum™ could be a valuable part of your vet’s treatment plan for recovery from digestive problems.

Choose ReguTum™:

ReguTum™ Fibre & Probiotic Care for Rabbits is recommended for:

  • For daily use, and long-term digestion support

  • As part of a recovery plan for a range of digestive upsets

  • For use after antibiotic treatment

  • To help with stress and dietary related digestive upset eg. moving house, loss of companion or ingestion of inappropriate food

Directions for use/feeding guide:

ReguTum™ Probiotic & Fibre Care should be fed daily and is suitable for long-term use.

The below amounts are to be fed per rabbit:

For adult rabbits, sprinkle one level scoop over normal food. For weaned, young rabbits, sprinkle half a scoop over normal food.

It is important to introduce dietary changes slowly to allow the gut to adjust. We recommend gradually building up to the required amount of over 7 days.

Amount fed can be adjusted under veterinary guidance to suit the needs of individual rabbits.

We do not recommend feeding this product ad libitum or in a separate bowl, to reduce selective eating.

Good quality hay or fresh grass should be available at all times to provide adequate levels of indigestible fibre and allow their digestion to work and keep food moving through quickly as intended. Grazing would naturally take up around two thirds of a rabbit’s or guinea pig’s day, ensuring they are both mentally stimulated, and their teeth are worn down through constant use.

Ensure fresh water is also available at all times.

55 Works wonders!
Verified Purchase

I got these for my stasis-prone bunny as a way to up her fibre intake. Since sheā€™s been on them sheā€™s had no tummy issues at all (touch wood!). She also loves them which I was worried about as sheā€™s quite fussy, but she attacks me for them every morning when she sees me getting the bag out!

55 Very good value for money

I moved from a more expensive brand and my two bunnies don't seem to know the difference - they eat it all up. One of them used to have regular upset tummy but not a problem since I put a scoop of ReguTum in with their food.

Canā€™t fault the product. We have two bunnies that have a scoop every morning, no gut issues since we started this diet. The go crazy for it too! I wish they did bigger sizes or a bulk option. Not a fan of the pouch. Would prefer a bucket or something.

Help with weight loss?

Angie

Hi there,

Will this product help with weight loss? I'm already limiting my bunnies' pellets because they are overweight. Will this product help at all or is it high calorie?

They are currently getting just under 2 tablespoons of pellets twice a day and I understand the the Regutum will replace SOME of the pellets. I'm wondering what I should expect given that each bunny won't be getting that much Regutum since I've limited their pellet intake.

Is there a minimum amount of Regutum to given them to notice any difference?

Thanks.

  • VioVet Staff

The ReguTum Pellets for Rabbits are intended to be supplemented to help promote normal gut health and reduce gut related problems. They are not a suitable replacement for a pelleted concentrate food or for other aspects of the diet such as hay. If you would like advice on feeding your rabbit then I recommend reading our blog on this, link provided here. A healthy diet is the best way to help reduce weight.

Can I give to guinea pig?

Keeley Jack

  • VioVet customer since 2019
  • From: , United Kingdom

My guinea pig has frequent soft stools after using fibreplex that seems to work whilst on it, but now run out of it and am looking long term. So can I give this to my guinea pig too?

  • VioVet Staff

This product has only been nutritionally approved for Rabbits so unfortunately I cannot advise it's use in your Guinea Pig. It will highly likely be safe if given to your Guinea Pig however it has not been tested or approved for this use so we cannot say for certain.

Ingredients

Lisa J W

Is this product much different to protexin profibre pellets or just a similar product by a different brand?

  • VioVet Staff

Our own brand ReguTum FibreCare has very similar ingredients to Protexin ProFibre and works very similarly. They both contain the same pro and pre biotic, ReguTum also contains an additional binding agent (Bentonite) to normalise stool consistency.

Pellet replacement or in addition to?

Angie

Hi there,

Is the ReguTum a replacement or alternative to a bunny's daily pellets or would you add it to their daily pellets? Is it a powder (instructions say to sprinkle over normal food without specifying what normal food is (pellets or greens or hay). There's no picture of the product so it's hard to visualize, and my bunnies don't like the pellet "dust" at the bottom of the bag.

Is it something you could put in a blender and mix with water when a bunny isn't feeling well as an alternative to Oxbow Critical Care or Sherwood Recovery Food?

How does it taste?

Thanks!

  • VioVet Staff

ReguTum Pellets for rabbits is meant to be used in addition to your pet's normal diet. It should not be used as a replacement for normal pelleted feed. It comes in pellet form, similar to that of most concentrate nuggets.
It is best used in a rabbit that is already eating to either prevent gut problems or treat any current issues. It has a taste similar to other nuggeted feed, which your bunny should love! We recommend mixing the pellets with your rabbit's current food as rabbit's tend to turn their nose up at any change or addition to the diet initially.

Scoop size

Anja

Hello! I just wonder how much is one scoop. I have 5 ml ( tea spoon size), 15 ml (table spoon size) and some larger ones. Thank you for answer in advance.

  • VioVet Staff

The scoop is 10ml, and holds approximately 12g of product. The scoop is included in the product and you do not need to use your own spoons to dose.

GMOs

Emily

The main ingredient is beet pulp, so I was wondering if this is known to be a GM source, or if this product is free of genetically modified organisms?

  • VioVet Staff

I can confirm the Beet Pulp we use isn't GM sourced, and the Actisaf probiotic yeast in the product is also non-genetically modified.
