• Yes, this can be an imbalance in the intestinal flora. Many factors like stress and change of diet can give rise to this imbalance. The right balance of bacteria in the intestines is so important as a large part of normal digestion is carried out by microbes in the intestines.
• I like to put these cases onto a good probiotic like Fortiflora. It will help to establish the right balance of bacteria and help with optimal digestion. The probiotic is available from vet shops or online. In older cats it is a great supplement and improves the digestive function a lot.
