Pet having digestive troubles?

Here’s a useful product!

Back when Faith, my smallest orange-and-white girl kitty, got extremely sick and had to be hospitalized twice (left her in a pet sitter’s care when I was away for a month or so, the pet sitter fed nothing but Fussie Cat…her fur started falling off in great, diseased-looking patches, and then she got pneumonia later…


well, let’s just say I came out of it very shaken, $2000 poorer, but grateful that my girl survived. I was so sure she was going to die.

Please. prevent it by feeding a good diet. Spare yourself the heartache and the pet the suffering. I shall blog about her illness next time. But for now…here’s a miracle (almost!) product!

Bene-bac plus pet gel! By the time I got this, Faith had been on antibiotics for two months. She couldn’t digest much, and I ended up feeding her meat broths to get her through. When she finally would eat again, I was overjoyed! I got this to make sure that the environment in her stomach got balanced with good bacteria again (antibiotics do a real whammy to pets’ digestive flora).

Here’s what the product description says:

A Source Of Live Naturally Occurring Microorganisms For Dogs, Cats And Other Small Mammals.

Guaranteed Total Live (viable) Lactic Acid Producing Bacteria

20 million colony forming units per gram. (Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus fermentum, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus plantarum, Enterococcus faecium, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Pediococcus acidilactici)

Why Bene-Bac® Plus?

  • Formulated for daily use
  • Contains seven naturally occurring digestive microorganisms
  • Available in both gel and powder formulas
  • Tastes great – animals love to eat it
  • Easily digested for an instant energy boost
  • Important for optimal health in all life cycles
    • Newborn Pets
    • Growing Pets
    • Adult Pets
    • Aging Pets


Essentially, Ben-Bac is Fortiflora without the animal digest (hence not very helpful in converting pets to raw food). Here is the ingredients list:

Dried Lactobacillus casei fermentation product, Dried L. fermentum fermentation product, Dried L. acidophilus fermentation product, Dried L. plantarum fermentation product, Dried Enterococcus faecium fermentation product, Dried Bifidobacterium bifidum fermentation product, Dried Pediococcus acidilactici fermentation product, Sunflower Oil, Sucrose, Silicon Dioxide, Dextrose, Artificial Color.

This thing worked wonders for Faith’s appetite! Very soon she was getting better (because she’d eat) and I heaved a sigh of relief. If your dog or cat is prone to indigestion, please give this product some thought. At the moment it is retailing in Singapore, and I hope that the pet stores won’t stop carrying them (because if they do, then I’d probably have to -.-“)

This is what you can do to hide bene-bac in your pet’s food:

The yellow worm-like thing is one squeeze of Bene-Bac pet gel. The tube comes with serrated plunger so you know when exactly to stop. Then mash it into the food so that your pet won’t know any better ! 🙂

Bene-bac can be used on birds and small animals too! Hurray for such an invention!
