Because one of the most common problems veterinarians see is recommended probiotic supplement 

for pets. Cats Meow Veterinary Hospital learned the value of this probiotic and highly recommends 

our clients feed it to their cats. It is very palatable and is often used as an appetite stimulate for a sick 

cat or a fussy eater. You simply open the pouch and sprinkle it on your cat’s food. No pills!



Cats Meow Veterinary has found Purina Veterinary Diets - Fortiflora to be especially helpful in 

young kittens that may get loose stools when transitioning from mother’s milk to food. It is also very 

beneficial for cats that get stress-induced diarrhea from situations such as boarding, being adopted, or 

a change in their situation at home - like a new addition to the family, whether it be human or animal. 

Any change in diet or an allergy to something in the food can also cause diarrhea. Regardless of the 

cause of the diarrhea, Fortiflora promotes your cats’ intestinal health.





Purina Veterinary Diets - Fortiflora has also been shown to promote immune health because 70% 

of the body’s immune cells are actually in the GI tract. This is true for humans as well as cats and 

dogs. Fortiflora contains high levels of antioxidants vitamins A, C and E to promote a healthy immune 

system.



Feline Herpes Virus I (FHV-1) is a highly contagious disease among cats that can cause many vision 

and respiratory problems. Because the probiotic in Fortiflora stimulates the immune system, it can 

help alleviate symptoms cats suffer from chronic FHV-1. The fact that you can feed your cat Fortiflora 

and it goes into the GI tract and treats a viral upper respiratory problem like Herpes is amazing! It 

can also help kittens before and during immunizations, as well as older cats with weakened immune 

systems or cats that are weakened during an illness or treatment.


Purina Veterinary Diets – Fortiflora is only one of the many benefits Cats Meow Veterinary offers to 

keep your cat healthy and happy. Call today for an appointment for your new kitten or your senior 

feline friend and receive $5 off a Wellness Exam when you mention this article.
