A direct fed microbial gel for Dogs and Puppies containing a source of live, naturally occurring microorganisms, pasteurized dried egg product, vitamins and antioxidants.
For support of digestive sytem disturbances.
PRN Canine IGY Plus Gel is a highly palatable flavored gel intended for use in both dogs and puppies. Manufactured with dried egg product and direct fed microbials, antioxidants and vitamins, Canine IGY Plus supports treatment for digestive system disturbances of known or unknown origin with the highest viral antibody titers in the industry. Developed from cutting-edge technology, Canine IGY Plus also can help puppies bridge over the "blank period" between natural local immunity and vaccination.
The dried egg product in Canine IGY Plus is characterized by the content of yolk antibodies (IGY immunoglobulin) to microbial agents which can cause disorders in the normal state of the digestive tract, impair physiological digestive functions and affect rearing of pups as well as the general state of health and performance of adult dogs.
The dried egg product is prepared exclusively of eggs laid by hens which have been subjected to specific immunization programs. The egg mass contains antibodies to the most important enteropathogenic agents.
In the canine intestinal tract, these antibodies bind to the surface of canine parvovirus, coronavirus, rotavirus salmonella and E. coli cells creating an antigen-antibody complex in the G.I. tract which prevents the antigen from adhering to the intestinal mucosa and establishing in the intestinal contents. The antibodies enhance the efficacy and/or help bridge the insufficiency of the natural local immunity. Dried egg product, the major component of Canine IgY Plus, contains easily digestible proteins with high nutritional values.
No component of Canine IGY Plus influences the chemical composition or efficacy of drugs used in the treatment of canine intestinal disturbances. PRN Canine IGY Plus does not affect drug activity in the digestive tract, absorption into the blood circulation nor distribution and activity in the organism. This applies to antibiotics as well as other drugs which may be deemed desirable for treatment by the veterinarian.
Canine IGY Plus Gel contains 2 billion CFU's of LAB, including live cultures of Enterococcus faecium, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus pumilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum which propagate rapidly in the canine digestive tract and support growth of other symbiotic intestinal microorganisms. It contains live yeast as well, specifically Saccharomyces cerevisiae (1 Billion cfu's in 3 cc. Yeast cell walls contain -glucans which are proposed to enhance immune system function.
Bacillus strains are known for optimizing food utilization.
Bifidobacterium bifidum is critical for aiding young animals in the production of LAB and producing enzymes for cell development and cell repair.
Omega 3 fatty acids derived from Atlantic Salmon Oil enhance the immune system and produce anti-inflammatory effects by counterbalancing the pro-inflammatory prostaglandins (PG2) and limiting the secretion of PG2 at the cellular level which reduces pro-inflammatory allergic responses.
Fructo-oligosaccharide (FOS) is a natural source of inulin, a carbohydrate made up of fructose polymers. The FOS cannot be metabolized by monogastics, which lack the enzyme inulinase. The FOS passes to the lower intestine where it is fermented by LAB such as Bifidobacterium. Gram negative bacteria, such as Escherichia coli (E. coli), are unable to grow on FOS; this creates a natural selection process which promotes beneficial bacteria in the lower intestine.
