treating the calves suffering from diarrhea have been studied. The total number of Lactobacteria and Enterobacteria in
the content of rectum of 16 calves was investigated.
„Lactosan“ is a liophilized bacterial preparation consisting of two strains of Lactobacillus - L. plantarum and L.

preparation once a day for two days. „Etrovitin“ and „Trimerazin“ were applied for the treatment of sick calves in the
It was determined that „Lactosan“ positively effects the endoflora of the digestive tract of calves - the total number
of Lactobacteria increased in healthy calves (p <0,01) as well as in sick ones (p < 0,001). The total number of
It was also determined that the total number of Lactobacillus in the rectum content of the sick calves decreased
compared to the healthy ones (p < 0,01). The interrelationships between Enterobacteria and Lactobacillus had changed
