VET Solutions Pro-Pectalin gel and tablets contain kaolin, pectin and beneficial bacteria. They are intended to help resolve diarrhea that may be caused by stress, antibiotic administration, change in diet or other simple, non-life threatening forms of diarrhea. The combination of ingredients in Pro-Pectalin is designed to help stop your pet's diarrhea, soothe irritated intestines and restore the normal balance of intestinal bacteria.
Kaolin, a type of clay, soothes irritated intestines, absorbs water, and absorbs any excess bacterial toxins which may be produced when your pet has diarrhea. By absorbing water, kaolin helps to firm stool. The soothing action of kaolin will help make your pet feel better.
Pectin is a form of fiber found in fruit. It helps to absorb water and firm stool.
The beneficial bacteria found in Pro-Pectalin are freeze dried, microencapsulated Enterococcus fa e cium , which is a part of the normal intestinal flora. Microencapsulation helps the bacteria survive in the very acidic environment of the stomach and move into the intestines. Once in the intestines, the bacteria will help restore the population of normal bacteria and eliminate ""bad"" bacteria by competing with bad bacteria for space and nutrients. Eliminating bad bacteria and restoring the population of good bacteria will help to restore normal intestinal function and eliminate diarrhea

What causes diarrhea?
Diarrhea, or loose stool, is a very common problem in pets and occurs for a variety of reasons. Some common causes of mild, abrupt onset diarrhea include change in diet, feeding of table scraps, intestinal parasites, antibiotic administration, and: stress associated with boarding, travel, or surgery.
When your pet experiences diarrhea, the normal balance of fluid and solids in the intestines is upset, the intestinal lining may be irritated, and the population of normal bacteria that protect against disease may be reduced or changed. Diarrhea in many cases is not life threatening; however, to make sure there is no more serious problem occurring, your pet should be evaluated by your veterinarian. Any time diarrhea persists for more than 24 hours, seems to be getting worse, or is accompanied by other symptoms such as vomiting, inappetance, lack of energy, or fever, your pet should be evaluated immediately by your veterinarian as these symptoms may indicate that there is a more serious underlying problem.
