Promax is a triple action nutritional supplement to help restore normal digestive function in cats and dogs.
Each syringe contains a three day course.
Digestive upsets are probably the most common
reason to take your pet to the vet. It can be caused by something quite simple such as inappropriate food, scavenging, a change of diet, stress or something
more serious such as bacterial infection, parasites or
problems with digesting food.
There are two main types of digestive upset.
The colon or large intestine is the last part of the intestines and is principally responsible for absorbing
fluid from the intestinal contents. Inflammation of the large intestine (colitis) is the most common form of digestive upset, and it results in the dog needing to frequently pass small amounts of diarrhoea that often include mucus and sometimes traces of bright red blood. The blood is a result of the inflammation and is generally not a cause for concern. Diarrhoea may also be accompanied by vomiting in the initial stages.
Less commonly a dog will develop diarrhoea due to an abnormality in the small intestine, responsible for breaking down and absorbing food. This typically results in the pet
passing large volumes of diarrhoea relatively infrequently. At the same time they may be vomiting and can rapidly lose weight. This is a more serious condition and needs urgent investigation by your veterinary surgeon.
Montmorillonite: a special type of clay which binds bacteria, viruses and toxins, thus protecting the intestine from their damaging effects. Montmorillonite has been shown to be twenty times more effective than other
commonly used clays such as kaolin.
Probiotic: PROMAX® uses an EU-registered strain of
probiotic called Enterococcus faecium E1707 which multiplies rapidly in the intestine, increasing gut acidity and inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria. Enterococcus faecium also helps to restore the natural
balance of gut bacteria.
Prebiotics & Glutamine: Mannan oligosaccharides are yeast extracts which bind themselves to harmful bacteria and help prevent them from attaching to the gut lining. They also aid digestion and enhance the immune system.
Glutamine is a naturally occurring amino acid. It is the most important nutrient for the cells lining the intestine,
and provides these cells with vital energy. This reduces
damage to the gut lining, thus speeding recovery.
