Diarrhea in dogs and cats can have many causes including a change in diet, dietary indiscretion, intestinal worms, bacterial infections, viral diseases, organ dysfunction, stress, antibiotic use, immune disorders, cancer, and more. Unfortunately, even when the underlying cause of a pet’s diarrhea has been dealt with, the diarrhea sometimes continues. In these cases, a disruption in the balance of bacteria within the intestinal tract is often to blame.
Sometimes the bacterial population colonizing the intestinal tract needs a push in the right direction. This is when probiotic supplements like FortiFlora are indispensable. FortiFlora for dogs and cats is made up of live active cultures of the microorganism Enterococcus faecium that has been proven to promote intestinal health and balance. Unlike some other probiotics, FortiFlora contains a guaranteed amount of live active cultures. Specifically, each gram of FortiFlora contains 1 x 108 colony forming units (CFU) of Enterococcus faecium as well as high levels of the antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E.
FortiFlora can be used as part of a diarrhea treatment plan or as a preventative measure when you know that your dog or cat is going to be stressed, changing diets, or on antibiotics. Most pets enjoy the taste of FortiFlora; just sprinkle it on top of their food and they’ll take it from there.
