Pharmaceutical company Genitrix has reformulated and repackaged its well-established Lacto B range of broad spectrum probiotic supplements for the maintenance of normal digestive function in pets.

The products are provided in a powder formulation for direct application onto food or to be dissolved in water. They are available in convenient five-day sachets or in 75kg tubs suitable for longer-term use.

Unlike single-strain formulations, the Lacto B range contains live freeze-dried cultures of three probiotic organisms that, when ingested, colonise the gut, helping to re-establish normal function.

The three strains of probiotic organisms occupy the same sites in the gut as certain pathogenic bacteria thus preventing their attachment. Indicated for dogs, cats, rabbits, rodents, reptiles and birds, the Lacto range is formulated to provide a guaranteed 1×109 CFU/g concentration of probiotic organisms.

Genitrix suggests that the Lacto B range can be particularly helpful in:

• Re-establishing normal gut function after antibiotic therapy.
• Maintaining a normal immune system.
• As an adjunct to the treatment and prophylaxis of nutritional allergies.
• Cases of depleted bowel flora.
• Helping animals with persistent loose faeces.
• Helping cases of bacterial overgrowth.

Commenting on the reformulation of the Lacto range, Rob Watkins, marketing director at Genitrix, said: “The Lacto range has been tried and trusted in small animal practice for 12 years and feedback shows that its multi-species indication make it a flexible and cost-effective solution.

“With its new formulation and new packaging, we believe it will prove even more attractive as a high-potency probiotic supplement.”

Genitrix, based in Billingshurst, West Sussex, was founded in 1998. The company manufactures a range of innovative veterinary therapies for dogs, cats, exotics and equines.
