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.
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.

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!
