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.
Our cat had been struggling with diarrhea for about a year. Our vet tried everything. Ran every test and nothing. Did the animalbiome gut restore and maintenance which helped. Then started him in this which has worked wonders and his stool is now normal and consistent. Only issue is the bottle crystalizes/hardens when it gets low. Which the last bit is wasted. Capsule form would be great and would ensure he’s getting it all.
We had a hospitalised stray cat that had many issues, and had a sudden onset of diarrhoea. Decided to let him try this since I just bought it but my cats didn’t need it. It helped immensely-just after the 1st dose, his poop started slowly firming up. So in the end he only needed a few doses. Also realised that they get very easily constipated with hard stools if they take it as a maintenance supplement though. So we only offer this when they have diarrhoea.
Adding KittyBiome S. boulardii + FOS powder to my cats food has helped keep his ibd in check for months. He gobbles up his food with this in it!
My cat has cerebellar hyperplasia and it seems to entail chronic diarrhea. I e tried all kinds of foods and Fresh Pet helps a bit but this supplement has made a real difference. My only complaint is that it gets moist and cakes up, making it hard to scoop. If it came in a capsule like the other Kitty Biome probiotic, which I’ve also used, that would be better, as I could open it up and sprinkle over the food. I find this product works better, though.
Thank you for leaving a review. We hear you on the caking issues that some customers have experienced. Look out for the new and improved jar that includes a moisture barrier.
My 13 y/o calico has hyperthyroidism which causes loose stools. I have recently added KittyBiome S. boulardii + FOS powder and psyllium husk powder to her diet twice a day and she now has partially formed stool. I will continue to use this product in hopes of healing her gut. Just as humans, the gut must be healed in order for the body to follow. Next step is radioactive iodine treatment. I also give this powder to my 15 y/o and have noticed no problems. Also, after several doctor appointments and multiple stool specimens tested they could not find any issues. I decided to test with AnimalBiome and found a multitude of problems that the specialty vet did not test for. I am so grateful for this company for giving me the tools to treat my babies!
