Gut Health, Prebiotics, and Probiotics

Gut health requires a healthy population of good bacteria. Poor gut health can result in diarrhea, poor digestion, tummy discomfort, and a weakened immune system.

Prebiotics are specific types of fiber that feed the good bacteria in the gut. This helps the good bacteria produce nutrients that support the cells that make up the gastrointestinal tract.

Probiotics are good bacteria that live in the gut. A healthy population of good bacteria is required for normal digestion and absorption of all the nutrients in food.

FortiFlora Symbiotic Action contains both prebiotics and probiotics. It’s a powder that is added to your pet’s regular food. FortiFlora can help reestablish good gut health when a pet has diarrhea, has an illness, or is on antibiotics.

FortiFlora comes in formulas for dogs and cats.

ProbioWrap is a moldable paste that contains probiotics. It’s designed to be wrapped around a pill to make giving your pet a pill much easier.

Because it’s a paste, it can be mold-ed to any size pill or capsule or monthly preventative.

ProbioWrap contains peanut butter and is highly palatable to both dogs and cats. It’s not messy like straight peanut butter and wont stick to your hands.

We recommend FortiFlora SA and ProbioWrap for pets that are experiencing diarrhea or other gastrointestinal upset. Both products can be given to puppies and kittens.
