Does your dog have acute absorption disorder of the intestine? Ask your veterinarian about EnteroGast. It is a supplementary food agent that supports the natural intestinal flora during stressful situations, acute diarrhea and during convalescence and regeneration. EnteroGast, with it’s the unique combination of botanical ingredients, can support the digestive tract and help to quickly alleviate adsorption disorders in pets - completely naturally.
Diarrhea in Dogs is a common occurence
Every dog owners knows: Diarrhea is a recurrent event. This is annoying for both dog and owner. The natural intestinal flora of your dog is adversely affected during diarrheal diseases and the natural resistance of the intestinal mucosa is impaired. This results in a weakened mucous membrane and an ideal breeding ground for bacteria. Serious and possibly life threatening bacterial infections can ensue. Be sure to ask your veterinarian for advice.
Causes for Diarrhea in Dogs
- Reduced absorption in the small and large intestine
- Increased secretion of the intestine
- Mobility Disorder of the intestine
Environmental factors, such as:
- Metabolic disorder, Medication, Poisons
- Food intolerance or allergy
Probiotic intestinal cultures (Enterococcus faecium)
Enterococcus faecium cultures have a positive effect on the intestinal microflora. They colonize the intestine and help to naturally build up the intestinal flora. This increases the paracellular density of the intestinal epithelium and reduces the secretion tendency. The regulation of intestinal peristalsis is additionally supported by Enterococcus faecium cultures. Probiotic cultures such as the Enterococcus strain also have an inhibitory effect on pathogenic intestinal bacteria: The cultures influence the binding capacity of the pathogenic intestinal bacteria by changing the luminal pH value. The competitive situation between probiotic and pathogenic bacteria around binding sites or receptors on the intestinal epithelium also contributes to the inhibitory effect. This is particularly important in giardiosis, as the giardia are displaced in favor of the natural intestinal flora. The cultures support the intestine in the production of a biofilm that can prevent the attachment and penetration of pathogenic agents into the intestinal mucosa.
Oak bark (Quercus robur cortex)
The pedunculate oak bark is rich in various tanning agents which lead to a surface densification (astringent effect) of the intestinal mucosa. Less water is released into the intestine and the intestinal contents return to a more normal, firmer form.
Rhatany extract (Krameria lappacea radix)
Similar to oak bark, rhatany roots contain a large amount of tannins (mainly catechols and proanthocyanides).
Psyllium (Plantago psyllium semen)
The husk of the Indian psyllium has a strong natural swelling effect. The seed can absorb up to 40 times its own weight in water. Once in contact with water, it forms a protective layer of mucus. This coats the lining of the stomach and esophagus like a film. In the intestine, psyllium husks bind excessive fluid. The feces is thus bound and stays in the intestine longer. Therefore, bowel movement can be regulated in a natural way.
