Proviable should not be given at the same time as antibiotic medications for full effectiveness of the probiotics; therefore, it is best to separate administration by 1-2 hours. The kaolin and pectin in KP paste could delay absorption of some medications, so the use of the paste should be separated by 1-2 hours.



Proviable®-DC Capsules


  • Single size sprinkle capsule for easy administration to dogs and cats

  • Contain 5 billion microorganisms in each capsule

  • May be given short-term to help support intestinal balance or used for long-term intestinal health

What are Proviable®-DC Capsules?

Original capsule formula, Proviable-DC, contains a source of live (viable) probiotic microorganisms in multiple species with billions of beneficial microorganisms per daily administration. Proviable-DC capsules help support healthy intestinal balance. Added prebiotics help encourage growth of the Proviable beneficial microorganisms within the intestinal tract.


A dog's and cat’s intestinal health relies on the balance of intestinal microflora – the balance between beneficial and harmful bacteria found within the intestinal tract. A balanced bacterial microflora helps keep a dog and cat healthy by:


  • Stimulating the body’s immune system – the ability to fight off infection
  • Digesting food nutrients
  • Producing vitamins and fatty acids

Product Information

The Proviable®-DC Capsules contain seven beneficial bacterial strains:

  • Enterococcus faecium
  • Streptococcus thermophilus
  • Lactobacillus acidophilus
  • Lactobacillus bulgaricus
  • Lactobacillus casei
  • Bifidobacterium bifidum
  • Lactobacillus plantarum

Horses and Fermentation

Unlike people and dogs, horses have a diet composed primarily of forage (grass and hay) and have a cecum in the hindgut for the fermentation of these forages. For this reason, a horse is referred to as a hindgut fermenter. The cecum is a large tube-like structure at the junction of the small and large intestine that holds large particles of forage material for fermentation and digestion. Fermentation is the process by which the good anaerobic (without oxygen) bacteria break down plant cell walls and carbohydrates to provide absorbable vitamins and energy sources to the horse. Horses cannot break down these plant cells without the presence and maintenance of the good bacteria in the hindgut and the functional environment for the support of fermentation.

Why does Proviable®EQ use yeast?

Proviable®EQ supplies live Saccharomyces yeast species as a supplemental source of support for the good bacteria in a horse’s digestive tract. These yeast species support the maintenance and repopulation of these bacteria, and the fermentation process necessary for forage digestion. Proviable®EQ contains billions of live probiotic microorganisms and is quality tested to meet label claims.


Proviable®EQ uses yeast because they are more supportive in the anaerobic (without oxygen) environment of the hindgut during fermentation, as opposed to aerobic (oxygen requiring) bacteria used in many other products that support the foregut but may not survive in the hindgut. The Saccharomyces species of yeast used in Proviable®EQ are able to support the fermentation process where the majority of fiber and carbohydrate digestion and absorption occurs.


The Saccharomyces species used in Proviable®EQ have also been shown to inhibit the growth of some bad bacteria that may result in loose stools, such as Salmonella and Clostridium. When imbalances or stress occur, horses become more susceptible to the growth of bad bacteria and the destruction and loss of good bacteria. Saccharomyces species given prior to or after these imbalances or stresses occur can decrease loose stools and protect against a shift in the bacteria from good to bad thus encouraging the maintenance of healthy and effective digestion.


What is Proviable®-Equine?

Proviable®-EQ is a synbiotic (probiotics plus prebiotics) product designed to help reestablish and maintain intestinal health. Keeping your horse’s hindgut healthy can be a challenge when so many factors contribute to imbalances in the hindgut's microfloral population such as travel, competition, change in diet and using antibiotics for a long period of time. The Saccharomyces yeast species encourage normal gastrointestinal function and health. Proviable®-EQ can be used continuously or as needed to help maintain hindgut health during times of stress or digestive upset.

Are other brands of probiotic products equivalent to Proviable®-EQ?

Proviable®-EQ contains billions of live probiotic microorganisms and is quality tested to meet label claim (contains the number of colony forming units, or CFUs, listed on the label). Some products may not contain live probiotic microorganisms or may not contain sufficient numbers of the microorganisms to support intestinal health. Proviable®-EQ contains Saccharomyces yeast species as opposed to the aerobic (oxygen requiring) bacteria used in many other products. Yeast are able to survive in the anaerobic environment (without oxygen) of the horse's hindgut, where the majority of digestion occurs, to support digestive health. Bacteria-based products cannot survive in this environment and, therefore, can not support digestion occurring there.

Available in a tasty paste formulation

The paste contains two species of Saccharomyces yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae andSaccharomyces cerevisiae var. boulardii) that help to restore a balance of the good bacteria in the intestine after acute digestive upset. The paste can also be used long term, intermittently, or daily to support the good bacteria in the intestines.

Directions For Use

Give 5 mL by mouth once daily for 6 days, or as needed, to help protect against microfloral imbalances. To help reestablish healthy intestinal balance, give contents of 1 tube 3 times daily for up to 72 hours.
Net contents 30 mL (1.0 oz)
