As Monty has gotten a little older, his stomach has gotten a little more sensitive. While we are careful to watch what he eats, Monty sometimes helps himself to forbidden items. Tissues are one of his favorites. Additionally, loud noises (fireworks, thunder) scare him and his vet-prescribed meds can give him a marvelous case of the runs afterwards.

The probiotic used in FortiFlora is Enterococcus Faecium SF 68. Nestle Purina has been conducting research in the area of probiotics since it opened in 1987 in Lausanne, Switzerland. It was one of the first research centers in the world to look at the molecular interaction of probiotic bacteria with intestinal cells. Since then, Nestle has published over 200 articles on it probiotics research.
FortiFlora helps to re-establish a normal microflora balance in the gastrointestinal tract. The beneficial bacteria help to nourish the intestinal cells ad protect against the colonization by pathogenic bacteria, which can cause diarrhea. In general, FortiFlora should be given once a day for 30 days.
What did we get?
This product is amazingly easy to use! In each box, there are 30 individual packets - one for each day. The packets are small and are meant to be sprinkled over your dog's food. We were a little worried about Monty eating it, since our boy is picky about his food, but he has no issues at all with it.
...and of course - our handsome Monty thanks you!
