You can get it on the can also get Fast Track and/or other probiotics. At least one person mentioned yogurt--look for active cultures. Canned pumpkin, metimuscil (unflavored) and psyllium have helped my guys and girls, both those who have left and the kittens who are here. I know adding fiber seems counter productive but it really works.

Debbie and Heather,
Thanks for the reply. Maggie has had several(5-6)fecals done and one sent away to a lab as a feline diarrhea panel which cost $160 and checked for fungus, parasites, etc. All of which were normal. She has diarrhea more than she doesn't anymore. She was born in June and began having FELV symptoms in August. The diarrhea has been off and on since then. Do you know is the Fortiflora something you need to get at the vets or can I find it elsewhere?
    Again thanks for the advice ladies.

I am sure you have covered this a thousand times
but I haven't been on
here all that long and am very far behind on reading
the emails. I have a
newborn and work and times get hectic, sorry.
We adopted a kitten that after a neg test later
turned out to be pos. We
love her so we are keeping her. The clinics around us
usually recommend
euthanasia and don't have a ton of experience
treating pos cats. We have a
neg cat 12 years old as well.
My problem is that Maggie goes through boughts of
what I call horribly
smelly Pancake batter poops. They are very watery and
smell very foul.
During these times she acts as though she is not
feeling well ( I wouldn't
either if that came out of my bottom). I would like to
know what stuff seems
to work best and what stuff to avoid. I asked my vet
about interferon to
build immune, she didn't seem very knowledgeable
about it but prescribed it
anyway. Seems like the diarrhea has been worse since
she got on it and it is
$40 plus shipping a month.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I
hate seeing her
