Probiotics for animals

Probiotics for animals are an important medicinal product that helps them to normalize the quantitative and qualitative composition of the intestinal microflora and protect against many pathogenic microorganisms.

Having in structure useful bacteria of various kinds, probiotics replace pathogenic flora from an intestines of animals and populate it with useful microorganisms. Thanks to the normalization of the bacterial ratio, the digestion of food and the absorption of nutrients are improved.

Probiotics can be divided into several subgroups, based on their composition. So, they can contain lactobacilli, bifidobacteria, yeast and various bioadditives.

So, medicines based on yeast are of low cost, and the effect consists in replenishing vitamin and protein deficiency of the animal. Such preparations are not destroyed under the influence of high temperatures, which allows them to be used in feeds exposed to thermal effects. The disadvantage of yeast is the lack of ability to restore the intestinal microflora.

Probiotics, which include B. Subtilis, are competitive medicines for pathogenic microorganisms. In some cases, this type of probiotics is used instead of antibacterial drugs to expel harmful bacteria from the intestinal lumen.

This type of probiotics is also not destroyed under the influence of high temperature, but it should be remembered that at 100 degrees there are destructive processes in microorganisms, which leads to their death.

Using probiotics from the first days of the animal's life, a healthy microflora of the intestine is observed, which ensures normal digestion and high resistance to infectious agents.

If it is necessary to use an antibacterial agent, an additional intake of probiotics is required to prevent the death of beneficial bacteria and colonization by pathogenic microorganisms. It should be noted that not all probiotic drugs are resistant to the action of antibacterial agents, so it is rational to use them at the end of the course of antibiotics. Of course, it is possible to choose a certain type of probiotic, which is allowed to be used in parallel with antibacterial drugs.

With the simultaneous administration of probiotic and antibacterial agents, it must be remembered that the first should be used a few more days after the completion of antibiotics. This is necessary for the complete restoration of the composition of beneficial bacteria and the death of pathogenic microflora

Probiotic Olin

Probiotic Olin has several advantages over other drugs of this group. First, it is a unique composition that has a beneficial effect on the animal's organism. Biomass of bacterial strains is stored in a spore form.

This form provides a combination of the capabilities of all bacteria, resulting in the effectiveness can be equated to antibacterial drugs, but without a huge number of inherent side effects.

Secondly, the probiotic olin corrects the composition of microflora, thereby reducing the risk of developing an infectious disease. Thirdly, this concentration, which exceeds thousands of other probiotics. In addition, further improvement is carried out so that the concentration becomes even more saturated and effective.

Due to the rapid proliferation of useful microorganisms obtained after taking the probiotic, there is no room for pathogenic bacteria. As a result, they lose the ability to multiply and suppress beneficial microorganisms.

Probiotic lactobifadol

The probiotic lactobifadol includes amino acids, vitamin complexes, microelements and prebiotic constituents. The drug is used to reduce the need for antibacterial, hormonal and growth stimulants in animals.

This probiotic should be used while taking antibiotics. Due to the fact that the preparation contains live microorganisms, it is not recommended to add it to hot food.

The probiotic lactobifadol is widely used for milking cows, after which the yield is increased by 15% after a five-day course of probiotic intake. Such indicators remain after a week of therapeutic course. After the end of the treatment, after 7-10 days, the yield returns to the previous level.

In addition, the probiotic stimulates digestion, improves fecundity, promotes normal fetal formation, reducing the risk of birth of hypotrophic calves.

Probiotic is recommended for use by bulls-producers, new-born calves and adults (up to 6 months), as well as for fattening and therapeutic activities.

Probiotic Plus

Probiotic plus "Olin" is considered the third generation of drugs of this line, the production of which occurs certain bacteria capable of sporulation. Probiotic plus is used in animals as a feed additive.

Proved a high property of probiotic to resist bacteria, viruses and fungi. The drug is used rationally for the treatment and prevention of salmonellosis, after taking antibacterial and anthelmintic drugs, as well as chemotherapy.

For rabbits with the prophylactic purpose of eimeriosis, gastrointestinal infections and dysbacteriosis, the probiotic should be used orally. It should be added to water or feed for mass distribution. The calculation is carried out: on the head - 3 g of the drug per day for 3 days.

If a probiotic is used to increase the resistance of rabbits to infections, increase in offspring and its preservation, the dosage should be slightly reduced. It is 2 g for rabbit per day for three days.

With regard to the treatment of eimeriosis and bacterial infection of the gastrointestinal tract, the drug should be applied at a dose of 5 g twice daily for rabbit for 5 days.

Probiotics have a high enzymatic ability, through which the work of the intestine and the entire digestive tract is normalized. This drug is useful not only for medical purposes, for example, with antibiotic-associated diarrhea, but also as a preventive measure. Probiotics for animals restore the full functioning of the digestive system, increase the immune status and contribute to an increase in the effectiveness of vaccination.
