CAROB FLOUR: The carob tree (Ceratonia siliqua L.) is an evergreen tree belonging to the Leguminous family that grows in the arid and semi-arid regions of the Mediterranean basin. Despite the high sugar content, the carob pod is rich in insoluble fiber and microconstituents, including phenolic compounds, inositols (mainly d-pinitol), and vitamins. (Aristea Gioxari 1, 2022)


YANG®: 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.



Psyllium is an annual herbaceous plant that grows spontaneously in the Mediterranean area. The seed of this plant is used, mainly the cuticle or peel, which is particularly rich in fibre.

Dietary fiber is known to help normalize colonic motility and transit time, supporting normal growth of gastrointestinal tract microflora and providing fuel for colonocytes. (J.C. Alves1, 2021)

It is also known that the intake of soluble fibers through the normal diet improves the consistency of the faeces as these fibers have a high capacity to attract water into the intestinal lumen, forming a gel in contact with it. Soluble fibers can also influence the constitution of the intestinal microflora and the surface of the colon, increasing the absorption capacity. The microflora can also ferment this type of fiber producing volatile fatty acids that promote the regeneration of colonocytes by improving the recovery phase from diarrhea. (Wakshlag J, 2011)

Psyllium husk is a source of mixed fibers, i.e. both soluble and insoluble, and it is for this reason that it is widely used in the supplementary feeding of pets in order above all to obtain a beneficial effect on the intestine.



Red  elm (Ulmus rubra) is a tree that grows in the central and eastern regions of the United States. It is traditionally used by Native Americans for its beneficial effects on the gastrointestinal tract, due to the soothing action of the typical mucilaginous exudate of its bark.



Zinc is a pro-antioxidant micronutrient essential for the growth, development and maintenance of the immune system. In the gastrointestinal system, zinc plays a key role in maintaining the integrity of the mucosal barrier and brush border enzymatic activity of enterocytes and shows a direct effect on ion channels. Studies on animal models have shown that chronic zinc deficiency alters the composition and function of the intestinal microbiota. Therefore, considering the multiple biological functions of zinc in the gastrointestinal tract, its administration in diarrheal episodes is relevant. (Muheet, 2018)



Pectin is a dietary fiber, one of the most important components of a diet. Pectins are a structurally heterogeneous group of soluble dietary fibers high in galacturonic acid (Gala). They have a broad spectrum of action especially on the gastrointestinal tract. Thanks to their emulsifying and gelling properties, they are widely used in the food industry as stabilizers and gelling agents. From a health point of view they show antioxidant, cytoprotective, immunomodulatory, cholesterol-lowering, hypoglycaemic, prebiotic and other activities, which provide a promising basis for a wide range of functional foods.



Bentonite is a particular type of phyllosilicate clay with absorbent properties. It takes its name from Fort Benton, Wyoming, where its major sources are located. It is also known as Montmorillonite clay, this name derives from the region of France called Montmorillon, where it was first found. In contact with water it forms a paste which has been used since ancient times and in many cultures, both for external and internal use, to keep the body healthy.

Bentonite has been shown to possess purifying properties, properties due to its polycationic chemical nature, which leads to the absorption of negatively charged toxins. Furthermore, some studies suggest that bentonite clay may aid nutrient absorption by increasing the activity of the intestinal flora. (Alessia Candellone 1, 2020)



Tannins are a class of chemical compounds produced by different types of plants, in order to protect themselves from external aggressions. In fact, their bitter and astringent taste keeps away the animals that try to feed on the plant and its fruits.

Tannins are divided into two categories:

1) Condensed tannins: Oligomers and polymers of flavan-3-ols, also called proanthocyanidins because by hot acid hydrolysis they release an anthocyanidin, from which they take their specific name;

2) Hydrolysable tannins: made up of a sugar, generally glucose, esterified with ellagic acid or gallic acid from which they take the names of ellagitannins and gallotannins respectively.


They are known for their antioxidant properties, but some studies have shown that they also have a cytoprotective action on intestinal epithelial cells and an inhibitory effect on the growth of intestinal E. Coli. (Serena Reggiy, 2020)

During acute diarrhea, water is the most important nutrient due to potential dehydration due to excessive fluid and electrolyte losses. For this reason it is very important to make plenty of water available to the animal, for the recovery of lost liquids.

Equally important becomes the integration, at high concentrations, of electrolytes such as sodium and potassium. Electrolytes are in fact important regulators of water balance, managing the flow of liquids to and from the cells. Lactoadapt STOP contains sodium chloride, potassium chloride and potassium phosphate to ensure the supplementation of these electrolytes.

The addition of DEXTROSE, more commonly known as glucose, completes the product profile.

Dextrose is a simple sugar and therefore a highly digestible carbohydrate. It is useful during acute diarrhea due to its energizing and invigorating action.

FAQ - frequently asked questions

How to take LactoAdapt STOP?

LactoAdapt STOP is a complementary feed for dogs and cats (PARNUT) indicated for the reduction of acute intestinal absorption disorders, during acute diarrhea and subsequent convalescent periods.

We suggest using the product when the symptom-diarrhea appears.

We recommend to stop administering the product when the dog’s normal intestinal activity is restored, 1 to 7 days of administration may be required;

Continue with LactoAdapt 15 or 60 tablets for normal intestinal health.

For any doubts, it is recommended to consult  the veterinarian.

The new formulation of LactoAdapt STOP® makes use of the Parnut definition (PARNUTS “Foods for Particular Nutritional Purposes”). What does it mean?

The new formulation of LactoAdapt STOP® makes use of the Parnut definition (PARNUTS “Foods for Particular Nutritional Purposes”), with it we mean the complementary dietetic feed able to satisfy a particular nutritional purpose by virtue of their particular composition or particularity manufacturing method, which clearly differentiates them from normal complementary feed.

What is the difference between Lactoadapt and LactoAdapt STOP?

They are both products designed for the intestinal well-being of dogs and cats, while the LactoAdapt ensures the maintenance of the optimal state of the intestinal tract, the LactoAdapt STOP is necessary “as needed” when one or more episodes of diarrhea occur, to restore the good bowel function and stop diarrhea.

What is the main difference between LactoAdapt, LactoAdapt STOP® and DiaGiar®?

LactoAdapt®, LactoAdapt STOP and DiaGiar® compared


All 3 products focus on the intestinal health of dogs and cats; the first (LactoAdapt 15 and 60 pills) is indicated to maintain the well-being of the intestinal tract, therefore the benefits are better appreciated with continuous use.

The second (LactoAdapt STOP 6 pills) is specific for disorders affecting the intestinal flora (therefore the bacteria naturally present in the body) of the animal and the related problems, such as dysbiosis, diarrhea, etc.; while Diagiar is more closely linked to those that are considered “unwanted guests”, such as intestinal parasites, favoring their elimination.


What distinguishes LactoAdapt STOP® in particular, indicated for the reduction of acute intestinal absorption disorders, during acute diarrhea and subsequent periods of convalescence, from the other two products is that it is a complementary DIETARY feed, designed to act when the symptom occurs

 (e.g. diarrhoea) and the intake of the product can be stopped with its disappearance.

It is a product classified as Parnut, therefore it is able to give to the diet specific health effects, in addition to the simple nutritional value. In this case it is a product containing those raw materials useful for maintaining and / or restoring the balance of the intestinal microbiota.

DiaGiar®  is  a complementary feed indicated for intestinal well-being; however, unlike LactoAdapt and LactoAdapt Stop, it does not act directly on the flora residing in the intestine, but rather its action is directed towards what could be bacteria and/or parasites that are undesirable for the health of the animal. The formulation of DiaGiar®, with its mix of essential oils (cinnamon, tea tree, garlic, lavender and mint) and plant extracts (pepper, pumpkin seeds, chios mastic, beekeeping by-products) with antiseptic and antioxidant action, therefore it helps to keep the gastrointestinal tract healthy, if destabilized by external pathogens.

What are feeds for particular nutritional or dietetic purposes?

Dietary feeds are able to satisfy a particular nutritional purpose of the animals, whose functionality (digestive process, absorption or metabolism) are likely to be impaired momentarily or are temporarily irreversibly altered. Since taking this type of feed, the animals benefit because they respond to the needs of their state of health. Animal feed intended for particular nutritional purposes, known by the acronym

PARNUTS (Feed for Particular Nutritional Purposes) is regulated by the 2008/38 EC directive.

In comparison to the category of complementary feed,  complementary feed intended for particular nutritional  purposes 

– is defined by a precise claim,
– has a precise period of use,
– a composition profile quali-quantity suitable to satisfy a certain nutritional purpose
-and the intervention of the figure is recommended by the veterinary surgeon before use or in case of extension of the period of use.

My dog is allergic to chicken. You can use Dogoteka products which contain hydrolyzed chicken proteins (hydrolyzed animal proteins from poultry liver)?

Hydrolyzed chicken liver proteins are obtained from a treatment (Hydrolysis) of proteins aimed at reducing them to their smaller constituents (amino acids). The term “hydrolyzed proteins”, which is the wording to be used under the regulatory profile, can generate interpretative doubts because in practice the hydrolyzed proteins are amino acids. Hydrolysis (which is a kind of predigestion) is the process that breaks through heat, pressure or enzymatic reactions the peptide bond that holds the amino acids together to form proteins. Thus complex proteins are broken down into more or less long chains of amino acids (which no longer have the structure of proteins), up to the amino acids, the basic units. These amino acids are not recognized by the animal’s body as allergens, because the structure is completely different from the initial one, so they can be used as food in animals that have problems with the undigested (non-hydrolyzed) proteins of that food.

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.

What if I have a specific question about my pet and I need personal advise?

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 […]
