FortiFlora Probiotic Supplement #ChewyInfluencer

Just as we humans need a little help with our gastrointestinal plumbing every now and then, so do our pets.

Whether it's an upset tummy, a bout with diarrhea, or a chronic issue, probiotics help to regulate their plumbing.

Disclosure: The Lapdogs are Chewy Influencers and received a box of FortiFlora , free of charge, in exchange for spreading the word about the product and Chewy. We only share information that we feel is relevant to our readers. All opinions expressed are our own.

Probiotics, which promote intestinal health and balance, have become increasingly more popular over the past few years. As a result, the pet market has been flooded with new brands and formulas.

There are liquids, powders and capsules. Some need to be refrigerated, while others do not, and just like everything else, some can be very pricey.

As I've researched options over the years, I've always looked for three things:
  • affordability
  • convenience
  • easy to give to my dogs
Purina FortiFlora

I was able to check all three of those things off my list with Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets FortiFlora - plus I can order it from Chewy, which is a bonus!

FortiFlora, available in both dog and cat formulas, promotes intestinal health and balance, as well as a healthy immune system.
Purina® Pro Plan® Veterinary Diets FortiFlora® is a nutritional supplement for dogs and has been formulated to achieve the following characteristics:
  • Contains guaranteed amounts of live active cultures
  • Proven to promote intestinal health & balance
  • Nutritional supplement for dietary management of dogs with diarrhea
  • Helps reduce flatulence (gas) in dogs

We have been using FortiFlora in the Lapdog household for many years with great success. Currently, both Teutul and Penny get daily doses. He, to help keep his pancreatitis in check, and she, to help with her loose stool issues.

The powder formula comes in a box of 30 single-dose packets which do not need to be refrigerated. As a busy dog Mom, I really appreciate how convenient and easy this is. All I have to do is grab one, tear it open and sprinkle it over my dog's food.

Yes, it really is that easy. And if you're traveling with your pet, having the single dose packets sure is a bonus.

Key Benefits of FortiFlora
  • Helps reduce flatulence in dogs (and man can Teutul fart!)
  • Contains guaranteed amounts of live active cultures
  • Microencapsulated probiotics, which guarantees that they arrive alive in your pet's digestive tract
  • Promotes intestinal health & balance
  • Contains antioxidant vitamins E, C and beta-carotene which have been shown to support a strong immune system
  • Tastes great and has excellent palatability
  • Easy to feed - just sprinkle on your pet's food

Both Teutul and Penny will stay on their daily dose of FortiFlora for the foreseeable future. Which means I really love Chewy's option of being able to order a 6-pack of 30 count boxes and having the ability to save an extra 5% by setting my order to auto-ship every three months!

Whether you want a single box to try, or need the 6-pack like us, remember that 1-2 day shipping is always free on orders over $49 at Chewy.

It helped Icy when she had a bad tummy. My usual boiled chicken & rice wasn't helping the situation so off to the Vet we went. She got antibiotics and FortiFlora and in a day or two she was back to normal.

Love the pictures of the matching pups in their St. Patty's finery! I hope you're all faring well in the blizzard. We finally have sunshine today, and I'll be sending it your way!

Like you, we are a FortiFlora family.It tastes great, is easy to use and it really works. We use it for maintenance and also for emergencies when one of us eats something that doesn't agree with us.
