Probiotics for Cats – Purina Fortiflora Feline Nutritional Supplement Box

| November 20, 2014 | 9 Comments

Purina Fortiflora Feline Nutritional Supplement BoxI was introduced to probiotics when Rags was going through all of his surgeries to figure out the tumor on his liver.  He was given antiobiotics for all his surgery recovery and consequently, the antiobiotics killed both the bad and good bacteria in his stomach.  So we had to replace the good bacteria with probiotics for cats.  Recently, I was reminded of their importance when Charlie was having diarrhea shortly after his dosage of antibiotics following his health scare.

Purina Fortiflora for cats is a nutritional supplement that contains microencapsulated form of Enterococcus probiotic.   Enterococcus probiotic helps to manage diarrhea or unhealthy stools and helps to restore normal intestinal health and balance.  Fortiflora also contains protein, vitamins, minerals.  As you can see in the video below, I simply rip open the packet and then sprinkle it on the canned cat food.

I also like to use this when we are transitioning to a different food or trying out a new food to keep the diarrhea at a minimum.

You can check out how I use the Purina Fortiflora Feline Nutritional Supplement in the video below.  I am using PawNosh glass cat bowls to put the food in (just in case any one was wondering).

You can buy Purina Fortiflora Feline on Amazon for $21.98 for a box of 30.

Do you use a brand of probiotics for cats?  Which one do you like?  Floppycats’ reader, Heidi, commented on our YouTube video saying, “Since we got Fitz, we started using ProBios microbial powder that I purchased from the breeder.  ProBios contains a source of live (viable) naturally occurring microorganisms.  Ever since we started using this, McDreamy has eaten better and doesn’t throw up his food anymore.”

    Great info, Jenny! Thank you for sharing this with all of us! We currently do not use any probiotics in Miss Pink Sugardoodles’ diet. However, it’s nice to have this info available in case we ever need to do that….

    Big hugs!

    My sweet Grace had trouble with diarrhea and intestinal inflammation that caused her a lot of pain. Tried all kinds of things including antibiotics and probiotics like PetGuard from my vet, but nothing worked. Was desperately trying to find something for her when I stumbled onto Vitality Science’s website. They have many herbal medicines for cats, but their Feline Comfort Plus is for diarrhea in cats. I thought it wouldn’t hurt to try it since the ingredients were all listed and were completely safe. It is also FDA approved. Ordered it on a Saturday and it was on the doorstep by Monday. Gave it to her hoping that it would do something by the end of the week, but it worked in only 1 day. By the next day, she was back to her spunky, playful self and the diarrhea was gone. Could not believe it, but did read all their excellent reviews on Amazon’s website as well. I now keep her on it all the time and she has not had even one recurrence and that has been going on six months now. Even took it to my vet to get her approval and she was really happy about it and wrote down all of the ingredients because they worked so well.

    Also, did a review here not too long ago on this medication in the blog section. Hope this may help some other kitties who are having so much trouble with IBS or just diarrhea occurring due to antibiotic use or change in diet. Not only does it really does do an amazing job at clearing it up fast, there is nothing harmful in it and the kitties seems to love it’s flavor which comes in two different kinds – liver or tuna. It can be purchased on Vitality Science’s website: http://www.vitalityscience.com/v/AllProducts/Feline-Comfort-Plus/cat-health-plus.asp, or through Amazon.com.

    I give my two girls a teaspoon each daily of plain Greek Yogurt. They love it!!! Since I started it , their poop has never been better. One of my girls has some loose stool so my vet gave her probiotics. It really didn’t do much. I got the idea about the yogurt one day when I was eating some. I picked up some plain which is 0 fat, no sugar and all natural. Bingo! That did it! Plus it’s like crack to them !!!
