Hello, my name is***** and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian. I understand that you are concerned about the concurrent use of the flea preventative Advocate along with a probiotic containing: L-Glutamine, N-Acetyl Glucosamine, Slippery Elm Bark, Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice, Marshmallow Root, Multi strain Probiotic Strain, Larch Arabinogalactan, Natural Beef Liver Flavour

Addvocate is a topical product containing Moxidection and Imidacloprid and is used for heartworm prevention, control and treatment of mange and ear mites, hookworms, roundworms, lungworms and fleas.
I cannot find any contraindications for the concurrent use of your probiotic.
You may see loose stools with that probiotic though as it does contain licorice and marshmallow root.
But no worries using the two concurrently.
It has been my pleasure to help you today. You are welcome to ask follow up questions about my response here, simply use the reply box and let me know. Thank you!
Glad to help!
I'd go with a pure probiotic like ForteFlora or Proviable.
Fortifora contains the bacteria most beneficial to cats, and the one most likely to be deficient in cats with diarrhea (Enterococcus Faecium). If you want one with multiple fecal bacteria cfu's then Proviable may be better. But most cats do not have, and won't benefit from Lactobacillus organisms, Those are beneficial for omnivores, like people and dogs.
