My rabbit is on antibiotics and i want to get him bene-bac. but i see that its alot cheaper to buy the bigger tubes but the only problem is its listed as bene-bac equine is their a difference between that and the one for small animals? or is it the same thing with a different label.

different intestinal ratios for different animals,,
get the small animal 15g syringe. buns will usually eat it right out of the tip of the tube,, it's like snack-pak pudding for them. 1g every other day while on ABs

Is that fact, or your guess?

i have heard about the bird version. but from what i could gather the avian version is different, but the others seem to be the same as the small animal one. that's why i was asking just to double check.

I emailed PetAg the makers of Bene-Bac and this is what they responded about if its safe to use.

"Good Afternoon,
Thanks for contacting PetAg about our Bene-Bac® products for use on your rabbit. All of our Bene-Bac Plus for any size mammal is the exact same product, just different labels to reach different markets. We even package Bene-Bac Plus in a 30 gram syringe and label it for either equine or zoo animal use!! The “Plus” is in all Bene-Bac products now. The Plus is the addition of prebiotics (FOS) which is the carbohydrates the “bugs” exist on to make it through the intestinal tract."

Well, That makes sense, given as it is essentially Yakult for animals I can't see how they could alter the strengths other than by volume.
I mean you can only have so many Beneficial Bacteria in a mil of suspension fluid.
