Probiotics and Gut Health #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? Dd ya’ll survive da shoppin’ extravaganza? It’s RaenaBelle. Yeah, I’s learned a new word there, extravaganza. Do ya’ like it? Did I’s use it right? Well, I’s gotta tell you somethin’. You know mommy fell this weekend, and as a result, she didn’t get da sheets changed on da normal day. Anyways, she furinally got ‘round to changin’ ‘em last night. And OMC  She put this thing on there called a ‘lectric blanky. Dat thing is pawsum. You ain’t truly cuddled till you’ve done it under a ‘lectric blanky. I hope every kitty has da chance to cuddle under a ‘lectric blanky at least once.

Oh, I’s furgot. Dat ‘lectric blanky thing was so pawsum it’s got mines mind all fuzzy.

       Fuzzy or not Raena, we need to tell everypawdy ‘bout da Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets FortiFlora Probiotic Cat Supplement. Furst we must say dat mommy gave sis Lexi Probiotics da last year of her life. At da time mommy hadn’t really done any research and thought they were only good fur sick kitties. After sissy went to heaven, mommy continued to research Probiotics in an attempt to keep me and now sis Raena healthy and happy. What she discovered is dat Probiotics such as da Purina FortiFlora are offen given to kitties with GI issues and/or diarrhea. But she also learned da Probiotics are good fur even healthy kitties. Our little bodies can get out of whack purretty easy, and dat allows unfuriendly bacteria to rapidly grow and cause other health issues such as UTI’s, Hyperthyroidism, and Pancreatitis. Stress alone can cause us kitties to have an upset tummy or other health issue. So when Chewy offered us da oppurrtunity to try da Purina FortiFlora, we jumped on it.

       Now let me tell ya’, Raena didn’t have worms like me did when she was young, but dat girly could stink up da whole house in a hurry. And not just when she left depawsits in da pawdee box either. She was a gassy little thing. No doubt her GI was overflowin’ with some bad bacterias.



Sissy, dat’s not very nice.



       Maybe not Raena, but it’s da truth. Anyways, me has also been a bit stressed since losin’ sis Lexi and havin’ to get used to a new non stop kitten sisfur. Me doesn’t know how sis Lexi put up with mes shenanigans’. Anyways, let’s take a look at what da Chewy website says ‘bout da key benefits of FortiFlora Probiotics fur cats. 

Key Benefits

  • Contains 500 Million live microorganisms

  • Proven to promote intestinal health & balance with microencapsulated probiotics, which guarantees that they arrive alive in your pet’s digestive tract

  • Contains antioxidant vitamins E, C and beta-carotene which have been shown to support a strong immune system

  • Tastes great, has excellent palatability and may even increase a pet’s desire to eat

  • Easy to feed – just sprinkle on your pet’s food

       And here’s da ingredients: 

  1. Animal Digest, Enterococcus Faecium, Brewers Dried Yeast, L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate (Source of Vitamin C), Vitamin E Supplement, Beta-Carotene, Zinc Proteinate, Taurine, Salt, Manganese Proteinate, Ferrous Sulfate, Copper Proteinate, Calcium Iodate, Sodium Selenite


       Most kitty pawrents hate purroducts or supplements dat are to be given/served in or over a kittys’ food. Us kitties can be picky enuff without adding anythin’. None da less, dat’s exactly how da Purina FortiFlora is to be given. Yep, just sprinkle on kittys’ regular noms and watch kitty eat it up. Let me say dat mommys’ ‘sperience with such methods has not been great. Us kitties can tell you’re hidin’ somethin’ in our food and usually we don’t want any pawrt of it. So, how did da taste test go? Mommy sprinkled half a packet on mes noms and half a packet on sis Raenas noms and placed our plates in front of us.



       We both did da same thing. Me took a good sniff and decided it was worth a taste. Yummmmmmmm  Ya’ know, it tasted purretty good. Hmmmmm Me better try another bite to be sure. Yep, it’s purretty tasty alright. Me will give it a 4 paws up rating. Keep da Probiotics coming mommy, me likes it just fine. Ya’ wanna know what Raena did?

 Dezi and Raena eating

I’s gave it a few sniffs and looked over at you sissy. You was scarfin’ it down, so I’s figgered it must be okay and took mines furst bite. Hmmmmmmm Not too bad. Another bite and then another and befur long I’s was scarfin’ it down too. I’s givin’ these Purina FortiFlora Probiotics 4 paws up too.



       Fanks Raena. Mommy said she was thrilled dat we both ate it right up. She did say it’s a little on da ‘spensive side, since da dose is 1 packet purr kitty purr day; and da box contains 30 packets fur $27.99 or $26.59 ifin ya’ add it to an autochip. 1 box would last fur 2 weeks in our house, so it would add up. But it has done wonders fur sis Raenas’ “gassyness”. So fur those reasons, mommy gives da Purina ForiFlora 1 thumb up.



       Speakin’ of autoship, Chewy has lots of purroducts fur most of da anipals in your life. Chewy also has da bestest purrices and shipping costs on da innernet. Dat shippin’ is speedy and furee fur all orders over $49.00 and a flat rate of $4.95 fur all other orders. They have great customer service agents…
