PROBIOTICS

Post  Admin on Thu Apr 02, 2009 5:42 am

"What Are Probiotics?

Probiotics are substances which contain live microorganisms that are thought to restore the balance of microflora in the digestive tract.

Why would my guinea pig need them?

All antibiotics affect the normal gut flora to a greater or lesser extent. Dangerous medications like penicillin are deadly because they affect the normal flora of the gut, causing a fatal and irreversible diarrhea. But even recommended antibiotics may have an affect. While not all people use probiotics every time an antibiotic is administered, it is especially helpful if the cavy is extremely ill or if the microflora in the intestinal tract is disrupted and the cavy is being treated for diarrhea or has soft droppings. Probiotics can only help."
