Fortiflora: A Probiotic Supplement 

Back on July 28th, I discussed the benefits of probiotics for your pup. That post can be found here:

In that post, I mentioned that I have used fortiflora when my pups have stomach upset, specifically diarrhea and gas. As promised, today I am sharing the benefits of this probiotic supplement with you. 

To refresh your knowledge, probiotics are live microorganisms similar to those found naturally in the intestines which help maintain balance in the digestive tract. After being consumed, they help to inhibit harmful pathogens from colonizing the GI tract. Probiotics can be beneficial to health, and help achieve healthy digestion. If you’ve noticed your pup has gastrointestinal incidents such as vomiting, diarrhea or excessive gas, your pup will benefit from a probiotic supplement.

These GI conditions are often associated with an imbalance in intestinal bacteria, which can be triggered by stress, dietary problems or food change. Since antibiotics work by killing bacteria, antibiotic therapy can also leave a pet in need of a probiotic boost.

So you might be asking me, what is fortiflora? Fortiflora is a probiotic nutritional supplement for pets suffering with diarrhea and poor intestinal health. The active probiotic in fortiflora is called Enterococcus Faecium. If your dog is suffering from diarrhea due to a change in home circumstances, boarding, eating the wrong types of food, a move, a course of antibiotic treatment, or if your puppy has soft stool, fortiflora can help.

Fortiflora assists in restoring the natural and healthy balance to your dog’s intestines with its unique microencapsulated live microorganisms. No matter what brand of fortiflora you choose to purchase, it can be easily mixed in with your dog’s normal food. 

Fortiflora is a nutritional supplement for dogs and has been formulated, no matter what brand you purchase, to achieve the following characteristics: 

  • contains a special strain of probiotic that has been proven to promote intestinal health and balance 
  • contains a guaranteed amount of live active cultures 
  • promotes a healthy immune system
  • contains high levels of antioxidant vitamins A, E, and C 
  • excellent palpability 

How does fortiflora work? Fortiflora may help nutritionally manage dogs with diarrhea in many situations, including: 

  • stressful situations such as boarding or change in home environment 
  • diet change 
  • dietary indiscretion
  • soft stool in puppies 
  • antibiotic therapy

Many dog owners and rescuers I know including my own Veterinarian recommend fortiflora for use as a regular nutritional supplement for dogs that are continually sick with stomach issues. If you’re looking for a canine nutritional supplement that will ensure intestinal health for your dog, you’ll be pleased with the benefits of fortiflora.

As always, I ask that you consult your own Veterinarian before adding anything new to your pup’s diet!
