A new product to support intestinal health in dogs and cats has been launched by Vita Animal Health.
Developed by scientists, Omniflora is available in a paste and tablet form and delivers seven symbiotic ingredients to maintain and support intestinal function for both acute digestive upset and long term support.
Omniflora paste can be used to provide fast acting support in acute digestive upset or strategically ahead of perceived stressful events such as travel or veterinary appointments.
Its unique formula contains seven functional groups of ingredients: probiotics, prebiotics, adsorbents, parabiotics, postbiotics, electrolytes and nutrients of intestinal cell support.
These ingredients aid natural digestive balance, promote the microbiota and replenish the natural balance of gut bacteria.
Veterinary nurse and sales manager, Tara Evans, explains “We wanted to provide vets and pet owners with an easy-to-use solution that can be used in practice or at home.
“One tube of paste lasts for three consecutive days to support cats and dogs as they recover from gastrointestinal upset.”
Omniflora is also available in tablet form, a handy alternative to animals who resist an oral syringe. The tablets contain the formula of probiotics, prebiotics and adsorbent clay and fibre, designed to protect, support and maintain the natural intestinal environment.
Tara continues “We are learning more and more about the importance of the gut microbiota. It is recognised that the microbiota has a huge influence over the well-being of dogs and cats.
“As well as supporting the gut in acute episodes of digestive upset such as diarrhoea, Omniflora can be used ahead of time in stressful events such as travelling, visiting the groomers or any planned veterinary procedures such as surgeries or blood tests.”
Omniflora paste and tablets are available in convenient sizes to cater from small cats to large dogs. The paste is available in two sizes,15ml and 30ml, and can be ordered online.
Vita Animal Health are launching Omniflora at Crufts Dog Show, where they encourage visitors to stand 102 in Hall 5 to learn more and take part in their spin the wheel competition.
