Why might my pet need this product?
Baby Animals - Baby animals are born with a sterile gut, which is rapidly colonised by both beneficial and pathogenic bacteria. The ratio between these populations is very finely balanced and is easily disrupted, leading to problems such as scouring and ill thrift.
Feeding Rufus & Coco Inner Balance from birth ensures the establishment of gut microflora with a positive balance of beneficial bacteria. This helps prevent colonisation of the gut by pathogens such as E.coli and Salmonella (bad bacteria).
Improved gut function means greater digestive efficiency, better utilisation of food and an easier transition from milk to solid food.
Stress – Stress in all forms is one of the major causes of disruption to the normal balance of microflora in the gut, allowing proliferation of pathogens.
Loss of appetite, picky eating, scouring, poor condition and changes in temperament are some of the lesser consequences. Stress is easily induced with some common causes being:
- Changes in diet
- Heavy work or training
- Temperature extremes
- Breeding, worming, vaccinations
- Environmental changes
Use of Rufus & Coco Inner Balance during these circumstances protects pets from negative intestinal changes while improving digestive efficiency and general health.
Recuperation & post medication - Antibiotics are particularly harmful to gut microflora, leaving your pet susceptible to re-infection. Rufus & Coco Inner Balance should always be administered following any course of antibiotics.
Good health – Probiotics are increasingly being used in intensive animal production to improve gut health, thereby maximising digestive efficiency.
Use of Rufus & Coco Inner Balance in these circumstances protects pets from negative intestinal changes while improving digestive efficiency and general health.
Can I give my pet more than one supplement?
Each of our unique products contains unique ingredients which act in different ways. According to our testing, there are no known contraindications between the products, so there should be no side-effects to taking multiple supplements at once.
Each gram contains 180 Million CFU as: Lactobacillus acidophilus; L.delbrueckii subspecies bulgaricus; L. plantarum; L. rhamnosus; Bifidobacterium bifidum; Enterococcus faecium; Streptococcus salivarius subspecies thermophilus.
Lactobacillus acidophilus is isolated from milk, cheese, other dairy products and human intestines. It is widely used as a probiotic.
Lactobacillus delbrueckii subspecies. bulgaricus & Streptococcus thermophilus is isolated from milk, cheese and starter cultures. These yoghurt starters have been associated with all the health claims made for yoghurt. Have been shown to protect against E.coli and Salmonella infections.
Lactobacillus plantarum is isolated from dairy products, fermenting plants, silage, pickled vegetables & fermented carbohydrates. It is also present in saliva (from which it was first isolated).
Lactobacillus plantarum is a *Gram-positive bacteria that produces lactic acid bacteria which are widely used in the dairy industry for the manufacture of cheese and yoghurt. Certain **lactic acid bacteria, are believed to have a positive influence on the health of the consumer.
Those probiotic strains are still viable during passage through the gastro-intestinal tract. In the intestine the presence or activity of the strain can provide possible benefits.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus is isolated from intestinal tracts of animals, birds and humans. Used in manufacture of dairy products, starter cultures. Has been shown to stimulate immunity.
Bifidobacterium bifidum is found in alimentary tract of breast fed and bottle fed infants.
Enterococcus faecium is isolated from animal and human intestines. Widely used as a Probiotic.
*A widely used microbiological staining technique that greatly aids in the identification and characterization of bacteria
**Lactic acid is also known as milk acid, is a chemical compound that plays a role in several biochemical processes
