That said, I would suggest not purchasing this from Amazon during the spring and summer months. According to the Proviable packaging, the capsules are not to be exposed to temperatures higher than 77 degrees. Amazon treats all shipments equally and does not insulate or mark packages containing perishable items. The USPS delivered my first shipment to an unshaded metal package locker, where it sat for several hours, cooking and killing the live bacteria. After I contacted Amazon and explained what had happened, they apologized and promptly sent a replacement. However, for reasons unknown, the replacement was shipped the exact same way the original had been shipped: in an uninsulated, unmarked box, via USPS, who once again delivered it to the same unshaded metal package locker, where it sat for several hours. I thought it pointless to ask Amazon for a second replacement, expecting a repeat of the two prior shipping mistakes.
Bottom line: Great supplement, convenient and easy to handle, but unless you live where temperatures normally don't register above the mid 70s during the warmer months, buy it locally, or stock up for the year from Amazon during the cooler months.
So, we've been using this product for several months now. I am on my third order. The good news is this product keeps my smelly cat's stool from smelling so bad. The downside is that it is not a one-time fix :-( Unfortunately, discontinuing the use of the product causes the cat's foul stool odor to return.
We will continue to use it but we're probably going to have to investigate alternative diets and food in the hopes of helping this cat smell better. I do realize that poop is supposed to smell bad. But this cats poop is out of the ordinary foul smelling. Our vet doesn't want to try antibiotics at this point because they believe it will likely do more harm than good. So we'll have to see if we can find a suitable diet that helps.
We are less than a week into using this product so I will have to come back with a long-term update at a later time. But I'll explain why we purchased this product and what we are seeing now.
Over the last year, our two old house cats that have been with us for the past 18 years have finally died. They lived long and happy lives. My wife and I decided to get a new kitty and we wanted a pure breed. Locally in AZ there aren't a whole lot of options for pure breeds and we were not about to pay hundreds of dollars to ship an animal from another location, but we did find one intriguing breed here - the Bengal cat. So we decided that, even those these cats are very high energy and aggressive, that we would get a kitten and see how it goes. The cat is great if not little psychotic (she bites you when she wants you to play with her and wiggling toes & feet under bed-covers sends her into a primal tiger rage!). The one downside - this cat had the SMELLIEST GAS AND STOOLING EVER!!! OMG, this cat would reek-out the entire house (and I have a big home) anytime she used the litter box to the point where I would have to put the box outside after I would catch her using it. I have never had a cat with smelly flatulence before, but any time this cat let out some gas....HOLY COW, go get some clothes pins on your nose!!! There are college fraternity bathrooms that smelled more clean and fresh than this cat!! It was truly gross.
My wife and I were quit perplexed and tried many different combinations of cat food (we use only wet food) from different vendors. Nothing changed the odor. So we asked our veterinarian about it and she suggested that probiotics might work if the cat has inadvertently gotten some bad gut flora. Apparently, the probiotics provide the appropriate balance of "good" gut flora that can wipe out some of the other, smellier types of bacteria. She did not have any suggested brands and only anecdotal evidence from other patients but she told us to go take a look. So I did some research and the Proviable-DC brand got good reviews all around the internet as far as I could tell from reputable sites (sorry, Reddit, you don't count!). Well, I ordered the product and started using it as directed this past week.
As of writing this comment (so about 7 days in), the cat no longer smells. Her flatulence is undetectable at this point and the liter box has been inside all day since and only has the typical cat box smell (I change out the pan liners every 4-6 days). Hopefully the long term results will be good.
My kitties red cell count was very low, at 11%, she was anemic and needed a blood transfusion. I know all of this sounds extreme, it was. Had I not acted, she may not have made it. It has also been very expensive, but she responded very well.
Now my goal is to keep her in the best health that I can, this is where this product comes in. It is very simple to split a capsule and sprinkle it in her food everyday, she doesn't even know it's there, and eats it right up with her food.
The theory behind the probiotic is to correct the bacteria in her gut that is preventing her from nutrient absorbsion. Will it bring her back to a normal weight? Probably not, again there is probably a deeper reason for the weight loss. However, she is already not throwing up her food and is regular. This is only after a week. Her appetite is really good she is perky and her old self again. This is very comforting. I plan to continue her on this along with vitamin supplements in her food. I want her golden years to be as comfortable and healthy as possible.
There is nothing about this that can hurt your pet, so if you want to order it to prevent problems down the road, it is probably a good plan for your pet. Thank You for this excellent product!
