Colostrum commonly called first milk is a liquid produced by the mammary gland. In dogs it is secreted in the two days immediately following birth.

It is a food that contains high quantities of antibodies, proteins and essential nutrients, which help puppies develop their immune system and obtain the substances necessary for survival in the first few days.

During the dog’s neonatal stage, the risk of mortality can be high. The intake of colostrum from the mother, therefore, is very important.

In particular situations, when the mother cannot provide adequately, in order to guarantee the survival of the puppies, it is possible to intervene by administering colostrum of different origins.



Ideally, a puppy should latch onto its mother’s breast to suckle within the first few hours of birth to receive colostrum.

As a replacement, bovine colostrum is one of the most used for dogs, due to its high concentration of immunoglobulins and other essential nutrients, which can help maintain the health of puppies and weak animals.

The benefits of bovine colostrum for dogs and cats include:

  • the increase in immune resistance;
  • promoting the growth and development of puppies;

What is colostrum for?

Colostrum is a source of carbohydrates, vitamins, proteins, fats, minerals and antibodies.



The prebiotic fiber triad:
– MANNAN OLIGOSACCHARIDES (MOS) from brewer’s yeast

FOS, MOS and INULIN are dietary fibers, i.e. non-digestible carbohydrates, of undisputed importance in both human and animal nutrition.

From a chemical point of view, FOS and inulin are fructans (carbohydrates consisting of the repetition of fructose units) with a short chain (FOS) and slightly longer (INULINA) particularly abundant in foods such as chicory and Jerusalem artichokes.

MOS are always dietary fibers, but made up of mannose repetition and mainly deriving from the walls of the yeasts.

All three have a prebiotic action, i.e. they are able to confer a health benefit through a modulation of the intestinal microbiota (FAO), i.e. the set of millions of microorganisms characteristic of the intestinal tract of various mammals. These microorganisms exert a beneficial and vital effect on the health of the host.

In fact, there are several studies that constantly highlight a symbiosis between maintaining health and the balance of the intestinal microbiota.


How do prebiotic fibers have a beneficial effect on the microbiota?

Humans and other mammals, including dogs and cats, do not have all the enzymes necessary to degrade plant fibers (such as fructo-oligosaccharides and inulin) within their intestinal tracts,  therefore, these, once consumed and arrived in the small intestine, not being digestible, are fermented by the bacteria of the colon microbiota thus exerting a positive effect on the abundance of specific bacterial groups with a beneficial action (eg Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium); this action translates into positive effects on multiple functions, such as e.g. intestinal motility, cellular integrity and microbial biochemical networks.

Several studies have shown that integrating the diet of dogs with fructo-oligosaccharides leads to an improvement in the digestion of various minerals and an increase in Bifidobacteria, one of the beneficial microorganisms that in fact populate both the human and canine intestine which plays a key role also in the modulation of the immune system and digestive functions.

However, the prebiotic mechanism of action of MOS seems to be different, for which various studies have highlighted their ability to selectively bind to receptors present on the intestinal wall, making them unavailable to pathogenic bacteria, with a consequent stimulation of the growth of “good” bacteria.






What are probiotics?

They are microorganisms capable of colonizing the intestine of the host animal, giving it a beneficial effect. Adhesion of the probiotic microorganism to the host intestinal mucosa is considered a crucial step for colonization and further interaction with the host epithelium and its immune system.  In fact, both pathogenic and commensal microorganisms express various adhesin molecules on their surface, allowing them to bind to various surfaces in the host. For this reason, when selecting strains of microorganisms with probiotic action, these must be characterized by a high ability to attach to the intestine.

Probiotics can improve mucosal health by several mechanisms, including production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFA), antimicrobial substances, modulation of the immune response, competitive exclusion of pathogenic bacteria by interfering with their adhesion to the intestinal mucosa and improvement of epithelial barrier functions.



It is a mixture of inactivated yeasts specifically Saccharomyces cerevisiae (commonly known as brewer’s yeast) and Cyberlindnera jadinii.

Yeasts are unicellular eukaryotic organisms that belong to the kingdom of fungi.

Brewer’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) in particular is used in the diet of animals for its nutritional power, being rich in precious macronutrients such as proteins, but also trace elements such as selenium and chromium, group B vitamins and many other health-promoting substances.

These actions are to be attributed above all to the richness in these nutrients.

Cyberlindnera jadinii is also a yeast widely used for its nutritional power, being also rich in proteins and vitamins.



Nucleotides are the repeating units that make up nucleic acids (DNA and RNA).

They consist of 3 components: a nitrogenous base (purine or pyrimidine), a sugar with 5 carbon atoms, which together with the nitrogenous base constitutes the nucleoside, and one or more phosphate groups.

Some studies conducted on fish have shown that the integration of nucleotides through food exerted a useful action on the intestinal level, increasing its growth and development.

For this reason, the demand for inserting nucleotides in pet food is increasingly growing, with the ultimate goal of contributing to the normal immune function and intestinal health of small pets as well.



Psyllium (Plantago psyllium) is a plant of the Plantaginaceae family. It is known for its soothing and emollient properties on the digestive system, particularly at the intestinal level. Thanks to the presence of mucilage on the surface of the seeds, in contact with water, it swells and increases in volume, forming a gel capable of increasing the quantity of the fecal mass, softening its contents. Psyllium is therefore useful for normal intestinal transit. Finally, psyllium contains fibre, which acts as a prebiotic for the well-being of the intestinal microflora.



Maca (Lepidium meyeni) is a plant belonging to the Brassicaceae family. Also known as Andean ginseng, its roots contain important nutritional principles, essential for the body. Rich in essential amino acids (such as isoleucine, lysine, methionine, tryptophan, valine, threonine, phenylalanine; which represent approximately 10%), mineral salts (iron, manganese, zinc, calcium, phosphorus), vitamins, carbohydrates, fatty acids and fiber.

Thanks to the constituents of its phytocomplex, Maca has a tonic-adaptogenic action, meaning it is capable of non-specifically supporting the body’s resistance and defenses to stress factors of various physical and mental nature.

These invigorating and energizing properties are attributable to its action on glycogenesis (production of glucose starting from energy reserves) in the case of physical activity. Rich in vitamins A, C and B complex, calcium, iron and zinc, it also has a beneficial effect on the nervous system.

FAQ - frequently asked questions

When should I use LactoAdapt Puppy?

LactoAdapt Puppy is a complementary feed in paste, indicated to accompany all puppies in the delicate phase of weaning;

Since it promotes the balance of the intestinal flora and helps to increase the immune defenses, it is useful in all cases where the puppy needs further support for physiological growth from birth to the end of weaning.

Also useful in cases of:

  • use of antibiotics
  • diet changes (breast/artificial milk)
  • eating disorders
  • intoxications
  • stressful periods
  • difficulty eating or lack of appetite
How long should I use it?

LactoAdapt Puppy is designed to be used from birth to the end of the puppy’s weaning period.

Can I also give it to the mother?

Yes, there are no contraindications, however we suggest to use LactoAdapt for adult dogs and cats, a complementary feed in pre- and probiotic tablets for intestinal stabilization with a specific formulation for adult dogs and cats.


When should I switch from LactoAdapt Puppy to LactoAdapt?

We recommend the transition at the end of the weaning period, the first formulation is in paste therefore easy to administer to puppies even if they only suckle milk, the second is in tablets which can be easily crumbled into the daily food ration

(when the puppy starts eating wet or dry food).

From what age can LactoAdapt Puppy be used?

From the first day of the puppy’s life, whether it is fed breast milk or artificial milk. The product was designed as a paste with a graduated syringe to facilitate administration to puppies. You can put it on a finger and put it directly into the mouth or have the puppy lick it given its high palatability.

Accidental ingestion of whole product packaging?

We remind you that it is good practice to keep the unopened package away from the reach of children and animals, as indicated in the warnings on labels and boxes. The greatest risk in the event that a dog ingests the entire contents of the package is that it may in a hurry swallow pieces of plastic, much more harmful than the active ingredients contained in the product. However, given the variability of the subject with respect to body weight, breed and age, the advice we would like to give is to consult your veterinarian who will be able to assess the situation from time to time by knowing the dog thoroughly.

Microbiota and correlations with the immune system and skin

The skin is the largest organ in the body. YES the skin is a real organ! Although some dermatological diseases affect only the skin, many others are the manifestation of a systemic disorder.   What is the skin microbiota? The term skin microbiota refers to the set of microorganisms (bacteria, fungi, yeasts) that live on the skin’s surface. The microbiota plays an important functional role in the skin barrier, which acts as protection against external agents (physical barrier and immunological […]

Good digestion affects the health and functioning of the entire organism

Nutrition is essential for the health of the animal. Suitable foods should be introduced through food: what is physiological for the animal’s body. These foods are broken down  into micronutrients through the process of digestion where the food is digested into smaller molecules that the body can absorb and use. Digestion, in addition to being  a very important process, is also a process that constantly occurs in the animal’s body. Good digestion is important: to nourish the cells with all the necessary […]
