PEPTOSYL is a first line defence against digestive disturbances in horses and dogs, with a wide safety margin, and analgesic, antiseptic and antacid actions.

Features:
  • A first line defence against diarrhoea and digestive disturbances in horses, foals and dogs.
  • PEPTOSYL is Bismuth salicylate oral suspension
  • Non-antibiotic treatment for non-infectious & dietary diarrhoea
  • PEPTOSYL has gut protective, antacid, antiseptic properties, and is anti-inflammatory to control pain.

After administration, the Bismuth salicylate is converted to Bismuth carbonate and Sodium salicylate. Bismuth lines and protects the gut lining (mucosa) of the stomach and intestines, absorbs toxic compounds such as endotoxins, and has protective, antacid and antiseptic properties. The salicylate component is anti-inflammatory, and rapidly reduces the pain associated with gut inflammation and disturbances.

The majority of equine gastro-intestinal disturbances are not of bacterial origin, therefore PEPTOSYL is a safe, non-complicating treatment in most foals and adult horses with digestive upsets of nutritional or non-bacterial origin. Most equine gut disturbances relate to incorrect management or diet, nutrition, or stress, rather than infection.

Bentonite is a natural clay earth material with properties similar to activated charcoal. It has the ability to bind (and neutralise) bacterial endotoxins.

PEPTOSYL is indicated for the control and treatment of diarrhoea and pain associated with non-bacterial gastro-intestinal disturbance such as enteritis, gastritis, and colitis.
Being non-antibiotic, PEPTOSYL does not contribute to bacterial resistance. Oral bismuth preparations are well researched in both humans and animals, and are reported to be free of toxic side effects.
