Probiotics for Cats

Showing 8 of 8 Results

What are probiotics for cats?

Your cat’s gut has both “good” and “bad” bacteria. Probiotics are “good,” live bacteria that counteract the “bad” microorganisms in your cat’s gut. Too much “bad” bacteria can give your cat urinary problems, constipation, weight gain, upset stomach, or skin conditions. Probiotics for cats support your cat’s immune system, gastrointestinal system, and digestive tract, thereby improving their overall health. Probiotics can mitigate existing issues or help your cat steer clear of them in the future. Probiotics are a great choice for your cat!

What should I consider before giving probiotics to my cat?

Cat parents often have questions when starting probiotics for cats. The most common questions include:

  • Can you give probiotics to cats? Probiotics are safe and effective for cats, especially those with diarrhea. Probiotics help your cat’s immune health because most of a cat’s immunity depends on their digestive tract.
  • What are some of the best probiotics for cats? Allivet offers several effective and safe options for cat probiotics, including:
    • Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets FortiFlora Cat Supplement – One of the best and most veterinarian-recommended probiotics for cats, this formula provides live, active cultures and comes in a tasty powder form. Each serving is individually packaged for convenience.
    • VetriScience Vetri Mega Probiotic – This probiotic is one of the best ways to help your cat recover from digestive symptoms like vomiting or diarrhea. It contains many different probiotic strains to support a healthy balance of intestinal microflora. These capsules are administered with your cat’s food.
    • Bio Case Plus Powder – This probiotic powder for cats is easily added to your cat’s food and offers probiotics along with pancreatic enzymes, intrinsic factor, and vitamin B12 to support overall, immune, and digestive health.
    • Synacore Digestive Support for Cats – This probiotic for cats also contains vitamins, prebiotics, and enzymes for overall and digestive health maintenance. It comes in individually-packaged sprinkle sticks.
    • Total Digest Digestive Enzyme and Probiotic Formula – This powdered probiotic formula aids in nutrient absorption and digestive health support. It contains enzymes and probiotics that help your cat utilize the nutrients in their food to their full potential, providing additional benefits like immune health, greater energy levels, healthy skin and coat, and weight management.
  • What are the side effects of probiotics for cats? Side effects are incredibly uncommon when cats are taking quality probiotics. It’s important to speak with your veterinarian about probiotic products before selecting one. Once you’ve chosen the best probiotic for your cat, you can easily order from Allivet for the best price on straight-to-your-door supplements and medications! If your cat does experience any side effects resulting from probiotic use, such as vomiting, diarrhea, or signs of an allergic reaction, you should seek the help of your veterinarian to select a better product for your cat.
  • Are probiotics good for cats with diarrhea? Probiotics are excellent for gastrointestinal symptom relief. They work to balance the environment of your cat’s digestive system, providing relief of stomach upset. For cats with recurrent diarrhea, long-term probiotic supplementation is an effective option to maintain immune and digestive health.
  • Are there any cat treats or cat foods that contain probiotics? Pet Naturals Daily Probiotic and Vetri-Science Probiotic Everyday Feline both come in the form of a tasty chew. Allivet offers both of these effective options. These yummy treats can be administered each day as a reward for your cat! These chews are some of the best-loved options for probiotics for cats. You might also find probiotics in certain cat foods. Treats or supplements might be good alternatives to switching your cat’s food, but foods that contain probiotics are an easy way to provide your cat with probiotic benefits without adding to your daily pet care routine.
  • How long does it take for probiotics to work in cats? Probiotics need some time to provide noticeable results and symptom relief. It can take a week or two for the live cultures to truly balance the bacteria in your cat’s gut. Consistency is key, so sticking to a daily regimen is important to allow probiotics to work their magic.
