Food with probiotics

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
What are some foods that have probiotics in them. My foster kittens are on the mend, but their little systems are wiped out and they won't touch anything like yogurt or buttermilk.

I think Nutro Natural Choice dry food has probiotics.

When my cats needed those (they will need them again soon, I'm sure...), the vet sold me that brown pasty stuff that was ALL probiotics. And my cats even loved it, didn't have to mix it to their food, even though it smelled pretty bad to me!lol

I can't find anywhere where Nutro claims to have probiotics.

Any idea what the brown pasty stuff was called? I know we don't carry it, but I can't order it if I don't know the name.

Tsk...I don't remember the name....*sigh* the vet only told me that it was probiotics and they gave it to me in a seringue. Kind of costly...25$ (canadian) for one seringue, wich lasted 3 days (for two cats)

Yes, try. I think my vet might have ordered the stuff when I asked. or they had it already...I don't know...it's a pretty big place, they call themselves a Veterinary Hospital...I always wonder what's the difference?

I use human capsules the powder is easy hide in wet food and seems to taste okay since the younger one will eat it off my finger... Natural choice has thema nd they are freeze dried you have to read the panel, no claim on the older packages the % panel has some numbers now..
I have pasted the kitten label...Chicken Meal, Ground Rice, Corn Gluten Meal, Poultry Fat (preserved with mixed Tocopherols, a source of natural Vitamin E), Dried Beet Pulp, Natural Flavors, Oat Fiber, Sunflower Oil (preserved with mixed Tocopherols, a source of natural Vitamin E), Yeast Culture, Potassium Chloride, Menhaden Fish Oil, Choline Chloride, Dried Egg Product, Taurine, DL-Methionine, Vitamin E Supplement, Zinc Sulfate, Ferrous Sulfate, Inositol, Dried Bacillus Licheniformis Fermentation Extract, Dried Bacillus Subtilis Fermentation Extract, Ascorbic Acid (source of Vitamin C), Chicory Extract, Cranberry Powder, Niacin, Copper Sulfate, Manganous Oxide, Biotin, Riboflavin Supplement (source of Vitamin B2), Calcium Iodate, Vitamin A Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Sodium Selenite, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (source of Vitamin B6), Vitamin B12 Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate (source of Vitamin B1), Vitamin D3 Supplement, Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex (source of Vitamin K activity), Folic Acid.

the food may help but I would supplement since they have had digestive trauma

We get Probiocin from the vet about 3 days into any antibiotic treatments.
It's a white gel in a dial-a-dose syringe, the cats seem to love it and will lick it right off of our fingers.

Is Probiocin costly? I might ask that to my vet next time....
