ProN8ure (formerly Protexin) Probiotic Soluble Powder
In late 2020 International Animal Health began rebranding Protexin to a new name “ProN8ure”. The actual product remains the same and the only thing that has changed is the name. We currently have a mixture of old and new product labels coming through in our stock.

ProN8ure is the most advanced multi-strain Probiotic in the world today. Unlike many other Probiotics that consist primarily of a single strain of bacteria, ProN8ure consists of seven different naturally occurring bacteria. The effectiveness and synergy of these strains has been proven in years of trials and production application.
The uniqueness of ProN8ure is not just confined to its multi-strain formulation. Research and Development has produced a special “protection” to ensure the highest possible numbers of bacteria survive the journey through the hostile conditions of the crop or stomach, into the gut where they rapidly begin to work for the benefit of the animal.
ProN8ure’s introduction to Australia makes it the first and to date, the only nationally registered Probiotic approved for administration to animals and birds.
What is a Probiotic and how does it work?
The digestive system of all animals and birds is home to literally billions of bacteria and yeasts referred to as Microflora.
Microflora are essential to the health of any animal; aiding the digestion, breaking down cellulose and other indigestible substances; helping the synthesis and absorption of vitamins and minerals; stimulating the immune system and preventing the proliferation of pathogens. (Pathogens reduce nutrient absorption, animal performance and cause disease).
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 less consequences. Stress is easily induced with some common causes being: changes in diet, heavy work or training, temperature extremes, breeding, transportation, worming, vaccinations and changes to environment.
Use of ProN8ure in these circumstances protects horses from negative intestinal changes while improving digestive efficiency and general health.
Antibiotics are particularly harmful to gut microflora, leaving animals susceptible to re-infection. ProN8ure should always be administered following any course of antibiotics. The digestive system plays a vital role in the health, vigour and performance of horses. Its correct functioning is dependent on the level and balance of bacteria and yeasts called microflora. Microflora have the major role in breaking down indigestible nutrients, in the synthesis and absorption of vitamins and minerals, in stimulating the immune system and in preventing the proliferation of pathogens in the gut.
All horses benefit from ProN8ure’s ability to stabilise intestinal microflora, maximise gut health and resist the effects of stress.
Dose at stress levels for the first 5 days and then dose at maintenance levels. Stress level dose may need to be continued for longer if necessary.
Stress Levels Dose / Day; Horses: 20g Ponies: 10g Foals: 10g Dogs: 2g to 6g Puppies: 2g Cats & Kittens: 2g Cattle, pigs, sheep, goats: 4g Calves, piglets, lambs, kids: 2g Poultry: Chicks 1g/L drinking water, Adult Birds 500g/500L drinking water. Caged Birds: 1g/L drinking water.
Maintenance Doses are half the stress level dose.
