Excellent product. Many uses for your fur baby.
My husband and I have 5 rescues, our oldest was recently diagnosed with renal failure and our youngest has a very sensitive stomach. We mix a little into soft food on a regular basis. It smells just like chicken bouillon and I'm guessing that is what entices my oldest to eat (for her we use it to get her to eat more do she gets enough calories). It's also solved a lot of the sensitive stomach issues for our youngest. We don't use a whole packet per day, just a little sprinkle in with some soft food or on top of some very low sodium tuna (Starkist brand - about 2 tablespoons). Our vet was kind enough to let us sample it at first, now we buy it by the box.

I was at my witts end until my vet suggested this to me after a 3rd visit with my 3 legged fluffa - who happens to be a maine coon cat with long hair. Due to his hind leg being gone he has trouble burying his stuff. He had had loose stools ever since i found him which was getting worse. Within 2 to 3 feedings his stools returned to normal. This was such a god send- trying to clean his bottom and furr was very unpleasant. It has no smell and is much less stressful on the pet than trying to get a pill down. Highly suggest this.
Healthy and yummy.From UndisclosedComments about Calming Care 30 SachetsHelped with diarrhea and my cats loved the taste.
Keeping Pup HealthyFrom UndisclosedComments about Calming Care 90 Chewable TabletsOur vet recommended Fortiflora for our pup's gut health, she has some allergies and a sensitive tummy. We drop a chewable in her food once a day and she gobbles it right up! Glad this comes in a 90 tab supply so we don't have to order very frequently. #sweepstakes
An excellent product that works!From UndisclosedComments about Calming Care 30 SachetsThis is a great product to assist with regulating my dog's fussy stomach. As someone who takes probiotics myself, I know the benefits and I am happy to endorse this vet-recommended supplement for a healthier belly. You still get to do the belly rubs, but 100% from love, not a bellyache. The price was the most reasonable as well.

Genuinely Improved Quality of Life for My Anxious PetFrom Fairbanks, AKComments about Calming CareAfter several months of daily use, I never want my girl to go without this again. She's always been a very high-strung, anxious, and easily over-stimulated dog, and I've tried literally dozens of products over the years to try and help her. This is the only one that's had a consistent, noticeable effect on her behavior. Before starting on calming care, she was such a handful that I would often joke about her ruining my life. She barked at every tiny noise, followed me around the house like an overzealous bodyguard, and though she's always loved other dogs, I had to be incredibly careful about allowing her to play with them, because she would get carried away and overstimulated until regular play escalated into a fight. Human visitors coming to our house caused her to become so hysterically excited that I'd have to sit and pet her continually for as long as they stayed, because if I stopped, she'd spend the duration of their visit frantically trying to climb onto their lap, licking and nibbling at their faces and occasionally punching them in the gut with her giant puppy feet. After about two weeks of giving her Calming Care, I began to see a gradual, but noticeable reduction in these behaviors. Within two months she was practically a normal dog. Don't get me wrong, she's still my crazy, hyper, silly girl, but the nervous energy that used to constantly pour off of her is largely gone, and she's happier for it. The incessant barking has finally ceased, she plays nicely with other dogs, and behaves (mostly) appropriately when people come over. She doesn't hyperventilate during car rides or try to charge through my front window every time someone walks by my house. The bottom line? This will not magically turn a hyper, high-energy dog into a couch potato, but if your pet is displaying anxious, unsettled behaviors, it should help them feel better. It's worked wonderfully for my dog, and I absolutely recommend trying it.
I would buy this again.From UndisclosedComments about Calming CareWe use this at the animal shelter I work at to help the dogs that are stressed.
I would definitely buy & recommend this product!From UndisclosedComments about Calming CareI can't say enough about the Purina Pro Plan veterinary Calming Care. It's very easy to use, you sprinkle one packet on top of your dogs food and that's all there is to it. To see the effect, in my experience and using it on my own dog it took about a week. Please note, every dog is different so that timeframe may not apply to your pet. She was having some issues of being very nervous in new surroundings,. From what my veterinarian had told me when a dog gets nervous or anxious it affects the gut. The Calming Care is a probiotic, which helps settle the uneasiness in the belly. She compared it to when people have to stand up in front of a room of strangers and give a speech, they get that queasy feeling in the belly, the probiotics settle all that down. I am so happy that Vetrxdirect carries this product!

Hello, I have been reading up on giving cats with suppressed immune systems probiotics and most say you should not. It also says the same with humans. My vet told me to give it, but I think her immune system is compromised due to long term use of prednisolone (due to intestinal cancer) since she now has what seems to be a cold. I think I am probably making matters worse. What is your opinion? Now I have no idea what to give her for diarrhea. Thank you.?

Specific information about a drug or supplement can be addressed, but the recommendation to use or not use a product needs to be directed to your veterinarian, as they have the most in-depth knowledge on the health history of your pet.Verified Answer
My 70 lb mixed breed is taking Fortiflora for digestive issues/loose stool and it has now been suggested by a professional trainer that I put him on Calming Care for an anxiety related issue. Is there any reason he shouldn't be given both medications at the same time??
According to the manufacturer, you can give your pet both the Fortiflora probiotic supplement for dogs and the Calming Care calming probiotic for dogs. They recommend not giving both probiotics at the same feeding. Please consult your veterinarian regarding any further questions or concerns regarding this medication in your dog.Verified Answer

My cat gets a daily dose of Rena Kare Gel. Is this compatible? Also, I premix his food & medication for pet sitters when we're going to be away. Is there any problem doing this??
According to the manufacturer of Rena Kare, you should consult your veterinarian before giving your pet any supplementation products, such as the FortiFlora. In regard to pre-mixing the FortiFlora, it is okay to mix with food or water, but once the packet is opened, the contents must be used within one day.Verified Answer
Can Fortiflora be given to a diabetic, mega-colon, old cat???
There are reported cases of cats with diabetes using FortiFlora and not having any adverse events. The only contraindication for using FortiFlora in a pet would be if their immune system is severely compromised. For further information on FortiFlora in you cat contact your cat's veterinarian. Thank you, VetRxDirectCommunity Answer
What is the difference between this product and human probiotics??
Phillip, Fortiflora, just like all probiotics, contain live organisms to help promote intestinal health. Probiotics will vary to some degree, differing from the potency and number of different live organisms; fungus and bacteria. The choice of bacteria strain for FortiFlora has been specifically chosen for cats and dogs and also includes other ingredients: protein, fat, and fiber. Thank you, VetRxDirect /Community Answer
