Protextin Pro-Fibre For Dogs | All you need to know


After Lottie's tummy troubles I have decided to invest in some Protexin Pro-Fibre for Dogs. Yesterday we posted a picture on our Facebook Page, which promoted a few questions, so to answer all those question you may have we thought it was best to do a blog post about it. 




If like me you have never heard of Protextin Pro-Fibre before, don't despair neither I had! I like many, like to keep up to date in the doggie health world, but with so much controversy it can be difficult to know what supplements are best. 

Last week Lottie had a typical tummy bug and a few of our Facebook followers did recommended Protextin Pro-Fibre to help. At our next vet appointment I happened to mention Protextin to see what our vet thought. 

Lottie has had problems with her anal glands in the past, not nice but that what being a dog owner is all about. She normally has to have them emptied quite frequently. The vet thought it was a great idea to try some and was able to provide us with a tub to take home, unexpectedly it is reasonable priced costing around £15.00 for a 500g which based on our daily amount will last us 50 days! 

Protextin Pro-Fibre is very much like us taking a probiotic. It is designed to be given daily, which can help to promote efficient digestion and avoid the problems associated with insufficient dietary fibre.  Lottie is fed on a dry kibble and I didn't actually realise that a lot of modern dog can actually leave dogs with insufficient fibre in their diet which can lead to problems such as impaction of the anal glads and coprophagia. 

Its really easy and simple to give. It comes with a  scoop and dependent on your dogs weight varies the number of scoops you feed. For Lottie it's 10g which is one scoop once a day. 




It suggests that you give it over their normal food allowance as it is meant to be very palatable to dogs, however Lottie being the fussy little madam she is, she didn't like it. After some tips found online I am now giving it in her tea in a small amount of soft cheese and water(normally a cheese triangle). 





Even though Lottie has only being on it for a few days I have definitely noticed a different in her stools (they are bigger and firmer). Hopefully it will also mean that she won't need those pesky anal glads seeing to as much. We will report back on that when we visit the vets next.
