Frequently Asked Questions
Is this supplement right for my cat?
This supplement is intended to help rebalance and support a healthy microbiome. Prior to using the supplement, we recommend testing your cat’s microbiome with a KittyBiome™ Gut Health Test.
This supplement is not recommended for cats who experience constipation.
Seek veterinary help if your cat's diarrhea is accompanied by lethargy, loss of appetite, bloating, apparent abdominal pain, repeated vomiting, large amounts of blood or the ingestion of poison or if the diarrhea lasts more than three weeks even if it varies in intensity from day to day.
How long should my cat stay on this supplement?
Your cat can stay on this supplement indefinitely.
Can I continue my cat’s other supplements and medications?
This supplement can be given with any other medications and/or supplements. While we’ve seen many cats benefit from this supplement, we always recommend checking with your cat’s veterinarian before changing their regimen.
Are there any risks associated with this supplement?
S. boulardii can cause constipation in some cats. Discontinue use if your cat’s stool becomes hard and dry.
I have had my 3 cats on this supplement for two containers now. They were not having any issues with diarrhea, but I was having an issue with one of my cats randomly peeing on things. While this product does not necessarily tout treating that sort of problem, I figured improving gut health couldn't hurt. Since I started the supplement, I have seen a reduction in my cat peeing outside the litter box, and all of my cats have improved coats (much more shiny!). This product is very easy to give to my cats mixed in to their wet food.
Finally found something that helps my boy’s antibiotic induced diarrhea. Start slow because I figured out he can only have 1/2 a scoop per day divided in two. If I give him too much, he has diarrhea. It’s a wonderful product!!
My cat has had IBS which progressed into IBD. Last year we used the gut restore system which helped but he still was having loose stools. When we started adding daily KittyBiome Sboulardii + FS Powder, his stool became better. I like that it is heat resistant so that when I heat his food, it is still effective. It must be tastelss as he eats it on his salmon. My only concern is one mentioned by others, the powder starts to harden before it is all used. I prefer a powder that is easily sprinkled versus another capsule to give (with his cerernia & thyroid med). Glad to read packaging is being studied. I have tried other pro-biotics but none worked like this one.
One of my kittens was having diarrhea. He was put on metronidazole by the vet. The diarrhea resolved but his stool was still looser than desired and a little smelly. After a two weeks on this he is having textbook perfect poop. So glad I gave this a try and plan to keep this as part of our daily routine.
It seems to be working well, the only problem I’m having is that the product is making hard clumps in the jar ( rock hard). I live near the beach, maybe humidity is the problem. The overall benefits are good. My cat has not had any diarrhea problems, past or present.
Thank you so much for leaving a review! We appreciate your feedback and are working to improve the packaging.
