How do microbes work in animals?
Did you know that 80% of an animal’s immune system starts in the gut or more specifically the gastrointestinal tract?
Every animal has its own unique microbiome: a universe of trillions of microbes that works to maintain overall health, just like humans. This microbiome is responsible for your animal’s wellbeing, so looking after it is a big deal.
The intestines are lined with a mucous membrane, which is looked after by trillions of microbes. This thin wall of mucous and microbes has tiny spaces which enable very small digested food particles to travel through into the bloodstream. If toxins, pathogenic bacteria and undigested food escape from the intestine and get into the bloodstream, it sets off an immune response and can cause inflammation issues such as leaky gut.
How to use them
Mix our Feed Material into regular feed.
Spray Healthy Habitats generously on bedding, around feeding areas, and into stables to reduce odours and flies. The good bacteria make cleaning easier too.
Starting with microbz? Introduce the feed to any animal by starting with smaller doses until they lap it up, then increase to recommended amounts. Bear in mind it can take up to 3 months to rebalance the gut.
