Proviable®-Forte capsules contain 2 times as many bacterial colony forming units (CFU) as original Proviable®-DC (10 Billion CFUs vs. 5 Billion CFUs for Proviable®-DC). Proviable®-Forte capsules help reestablish healthy intestinal flora while the additional Proviable®-KP paste contains ingredients to help firm stools. Both formulations contain probiotics and prebiotics providing a synbiotic approach to therapy which encourages growth of the Proviable®-Forte beneficial microorganisms within the intestinal tract.

Give paste and capsules by mouth as directed by your veterinarian. Paste and capsules should be started on the same day. The Proviable®-KP paste is for short term use and given for 48 to 72 hours via a easy to use graduated tube. The Proviable®-Forte capsules can be given long term. Give 1 easily administered sprinkle capsule daily on food or pilled as directed by your veterinarian.
The kaolin and pectin in the Proviable® paste could delay absorption of some medications, so the administration of the paste should be separated by 1-2 hours from other medications. The Proviable®-Forte capsules should not be given at the same time as antibiotic medications for full effectiveness of the probiotics; therefore it is best to separate the administration times by 1-2 hours. Probiotics should be administered based on the recommendation of your veterinarian. They are not recommended for pets that are critically ill or that have a suppressed immune system, or in animals that are severely dehydrated or vomiting.
