Subject: [ferrethealth] Re: Probiotics given right after giving Antibiotics

>From S. S. Biradar, S. T. Bahagvati & B. Shegunshi : Probiotics And Antibiotics: A Brief Overview . The Internet Journal of Nutrition and Wellness. 2005 Volume 2 Number 1. Retrieved from:

"In order for the probiotics to be the most effective, they should be taken at least two hours after each dose of antibiotic."

The authors also recommend they be taken with food.

The article discusses probiotic use in birds and humans, however, I think its safe to assume that separating the dose of probiotic and antibiotics makes sense. as you suspected.

And this from a holistic vet:

"Our recommendation: give the probiotic 2-4 hours after antibiotic therapy. So let's say your antibiotic is to be given every 12 hours (6 am and 6 pm), give your probiotic at 8-10 am and 8-10 pm. Consider it "damage control" during antibiotic administration and then of course, keep up with probiotic therapy at least a month post drug therapy (many people see benefits in keeping their pets on lifelong probiotic therapy)."
