Hello! Nigel, here. I wanted to take a moment to talk to you all about something that can really help your kitty to be a healthier feline. Probiotics! What’s that you say? What is that unbelievably smart and handsome cat talking about now?
For those of you who aren’t familiar with this term– probiotics, is used to describe the beneficial bacteria that live inside of the gastrointestinal system. You know, your “tum-tum”. Don’t worry…not all bacteria are bad. In fact, many of them are very good for your kitty’s body and help it to function properly. Probiotics help with normalizing gastrointestinal system function. Most importantly, if you have a cat that tends to be pukey or have soft stool, probiotics may be just the thing to get these functions back to normal. These wondrous little bacteria also help contribute to an improved immune response. Cats with many different chronic conditions–Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Allergies, Asthma–as well as healthy cats can all benefit from daily probiotic supplementation.
It is important to remember to use only a supplement designed specifically for cats. They come in powders and as capsules, therefore you can easily find one that your cat won’t mind taking. Do not use a probiotic supplement designed for people. If you would like a recommendation on the type to use, why not give a call or text over to For Cats Only? One of the doctors would be happy to meet you and the cat who owns you. They can talk to you all about probiotics and why your cat should be taking them every day.
That’s all for now. Cheerio! Nigel.
