Why Should I See My Vet?

At VetPlus we believe vets are best placed to advise on the best course of action for your pet. If your pet is suffering from diarrhoea, your vet may put your dog on a regular feed of Colaid to help maintain a healthy gut.

What Else Can I Do?

Maintain a healthy diet for your pet, avoid any sudden changes in diet and do not feed them human food. Human foods contain high levels of fat, salt and sugar and in some cases can be toxic to pets.

Feeding Guidelines

Colaid comes as a capsule which can either be given whole to your dog, or opened and mixed with food.

Initially give your pet one capsule a day per 15kg of bodyweight. This should continue for three to four weeks. In the long term, this can be reduced to every other day.


Colaid is a unique formulation consisting of:

  • Fructo-oligosaccharides – a prebiotic to promote the activity of good bacteria in the intestines
  • N-acetyl D-glucosamine – essential for maintaining an optimal mucosal barrier function
  • Oil of ginger – well known for promoting good digestive health
  • L-arginine – an essential amino acid providing nutrition to the cells of the intestines
  • L-Glutamine – an important nutrient for digestive health
  • Aspartic acid – an amino acid that is used for metabolism within the intestines
  • Quercetin – a naturally occurring antioxidant
  • Vitamin A – aids the health of intestinal cells
  • Vitamin E – a potent antioxidant
  • Zinc – provides antioxidant and immune support

All of our products are manufactured in Lytham, Lancashire to GMP Standard. To find out more about our manufacturing facility, click here.


Contact the vet you purchased Colaid from for guidance on the use of Colaid for your pet. They’ll be able to provide specialised advice for your pet due to the records they keep. If you are unable to get the information you need from your vet, or if you bought Colaid elsewhere, please contact us for assistance.
