When young puppies or kittens get diarrhea, what can you do to help them. There are many causes of diarrhea in puppies and kittens but one of the most important things you can do to shorten the course of diarrhea, is to include a probiotic such as Doc Roy’s® GI Synbiotics or Breeder’s Edge® Nurture Flora in their feeding. Nurture Flora is a probiotic specifically formulated for puppies and kittens from birth to three months old.
