I have never had good luck with FortiFlora; I think that it's just another way 
of selling something for more instead of getting it cheaper.  With acidophilus, 
you don't even have to measure out a dosage, whatever you give, will be fine.

I've tried "forti flora"... Give him half a packet a day, bc he's only 4lbs. No 
difference. Just started that 4 days ago tho...

I think probiotics will also help. They will help diarrhea and also will 
replenish good bacteria in the gut.
