Thia may be the easiest product review I've ever written, because we love this product. We were first introduced to FortiFlora several years ago when our whole pack was suffering with a cryptosperidium infection. Those of you who were following us at that time remember the months of sickness we went thru ending with the deaths of Samba and Sky and leaving my other three boys with permanent intestinal damage. It was a terrible time.
One of the symptoms of crypto is diarrhea, really horrible constant diarrhea. I contracted crypto myself on my trip to Russia in 1984. It causes almost unbearable stomach cramps followed by explosive diarrhea. This happens every time you eat anything. The bacteria almost instantly go to work on whatever food you've taken in and the cramps start immediately. Mine was caused by contaminated water and though we don't know exactly how my dogs got it, it may also have been from water.
Our vet introduced us to FortiFlora to try and combat the diarrhea. It wasn't successful for the very sickest dogs, but for the others it certainly did help them. Once the remaining pack was healthy again, my boys still had some intestinal issues and stools were frequently soft. Again I turned to FortiFlora and it helped a great deal.
FortiFlora is a probiotic supplement that contains guaranteed levels of Enterococcus faecium SF 68. It contains antioxidant vitamins E, C and beta-carotene, helps reduce flatulence and aids in managing diarrhea.
When one of my dogs has a less than acceptable stool, I start them on ForitFlora at the next meal. Even if all dogs are feeling fine, once a week each dog gets it for maintenance.
A box of FortiFlora contains 30 individual packets. Each packet contains a measured amount of brown granular powder.
If you have a gassy doggie or if you don't like the looks of his stool, try FortiFlora. This stuff is great. How often do you find a product that they like and it also does what it says it does. Win-win.
When chewy offered this as a review choice this month, I jumped on it because in this house we're believers. Chewy sent us a full box of FortiFlora for dogs at no cost to us in exchange for our honest review.
Order some next time you order dog food. Use it as a maintenance probiotic and keep some on hand for tummy upsets. Your dog will thank you.
