Microscopic Wars: The battle to keep your pet’s gut healthy!

Small Animal

Tuckers Pet & Produce knows that our pets are everything to us!

Whether that’s pets covered in scales, feathers or fur – we know that your pets are your first and foremost. Hence why we encourage good overall health for all animals – not just the exterior health but also interior, focusing on the digestive tract health.

Below is a little more information from Vetafarm what makes up the interior gut health of animals and what we can do to encourage it’s optimum benefits.

Every day the bodies of our pets go to war. Yes – war on a microscopic scale between the forces of good bacteria or Probiotics and the armies of bad bacteria, or Pathogens. Each side makes advances against the other for territory within the Microbiome of your pet’s gut (the microbiological ecology in the stomach).

It’s important for our pet’s ongoing health, whether they be a bird, dog or rat, that the probiotics win as much territory in the microbiome as possible. While probiotics help digest food and bolster the immune system, pathogens can cause a range of illnesses.

If left unchecked or if your pet becomes stressed, pathogens numbers increase and their hold in the microbiome strengthens. Now pathogens are putting your animal’s health at risk. They must not prevail!

It’s important to consider Probiotics, Pathogens, Chemical Welfare, Prebiotics, Digestive Enzymes and more.

Use Vetafarm Synbiotic for everyday immune and digestive support, nonspecific diarrhoea, post antibiotics, post-surgery, travel or stressful situations.

  • Vetafarm Synbiotic contains 9 strains of beneficial bacteria, making Synbiotic the most diverse and effective Probiotic supplement available ( Lactobacillus acidophilus, L.casei, L. salivarus, L.plantarum, L.rhamnosus, L.brevis, Bifidobacterium bifidum, B.lactis, Streptococcus thermophilus). These probiotics support your pet’s immune system in a number of ways, from physically forcing pathogens out of the gut, to stimulating the development of protective mucus – Yum!
  • Across the 9 strains, there are 550 MILLION good bacteria in every gram of Synbiotic, making it the most concentrated probiotic available for pets and ensuring the optimum colonisation of good bacteria in the gut.
  • There are 7 different enzymes to suit your particular pet’s diet, improving digestion and ensuring the best uptake of nutrients essential for recovery from illness.
  • Prebiotics in the form of natural chicory root extract provide further support for probiotic growth in the gut.

The depth and variety of probiotics and enzymes in Synbiotic are designed to support the digestive and immune functions of herbivores, omnivores, carnivores and everything in between. Perfect for all pets!
