    Fortiflora helped!, February 28, 2008

    Sheltie Lover (Chicago, IL) –

    Our dog, who had inflammatory bowel disease, was helped by this product. The difference was not striking, but it did seem to reduce her diarrhea when not much else did. It was suggested to us by a conventional vet who had glowing words of praise for it. Our holistic vet said it wasn’t well-absorbed and thus, not helpful. She suggested a different acidophilus product, but this worked best.

    Great combincation of probiotics and antioxidents!, January 22, 2009
    A Kid’s Review
    This review is from: Purina Veterinary Diets Fortiflora Canine, 30 Sachets Per Box (Misc.)

    Our dog suffers from chronic urinary tract infections due to a congenital abnormality and is also chronically constipated. She also has food allergies and is allergic to grass. At 5 years old, she’s had more than her share of health concerns! She is on a special diet, gets a cranberry supplement twice daily along with a fiber supplement. We try and limit the use of antibiotics but when our dog is in pain with an active UTI, antibiotics are the best course of treatment for her. In reading about the benefits of probiotics, especially while using antibiotics, I had a discussion with our vet about adding them to our dog’s food. She fully encouraged us to put our furry child on probiotics, and addded that probiotics might also help her better absorb not only food, but her food supplements and the latest course of antibiotics. Forti-flora also has anti-oxidents and vitamins, so in addition to the probiotic, it should also support the immune system.

    At the same time, we placed our dog on a diet for urinary tract health. The transition to a different food did not cause the temporary digestive upset we normally anticipate in a diet change, no matter how slowly we transition the food. I beleive this was due to our adding Forti-Flora to her morning meal. Since she’s been on Forti-Flora, we’ve also been able to cut back on the use of a fiber supplement since her constipation problem has improved dramatically. While the product information addresses the use of the product for diaherrea, it seems to be working to help our dog with the opposite problem. This suggests that Forti-Flora is helping to balance the flora in her colon, just as it claims.

    Our vet charges [..] (not including tax!) for a box of […] sachets. So we now get it online for about 65% of that.

    We have a 14 year old Corgi and he was having intestinal problems and loose stool. Since putting him on the FortiFlora all of that is much better. We were buying the product through our vet, but the price on Amazon was to good to pass up. We were at first concerned about the expiration date ordering online, but were pleasantly surprised to see that the date was well into next year. Even longer than our vets product.
