Plantaeris is a gentle, natural vet-formulated supplement to help cat diarrhea. It is designed to help reduce symptoms of diarrhea and maintain normal bowel function. It also helps soothe and relieve spasms, pain, and discomfort. Since this herbal formulation helps balance the body, it can be used on a longer-term basis if your cat suffers from frequent diarrhea (though it is vital to understand the underlying cause of diarrhea).
How to Stop a Cat’s Diarrhea
Diarrhea is a symptom of digestive disorders. In cats, it can be caused by inflammatory bowel disease, food allergies, parasites, or commonly an underlying condition, such as hyperthyroidism or kidney disease.
To help with cat diarrhea, make sure your pet is getting adequate water and nutrition as diarrhea can lead to weight loss, dehydration, vomiting, and lethargy. Remember that a cat can be eating the same food for years and still develop a food allergy to it. Talk to your vet to rule out any underlying conditions.
For days when your cat is suffering from acute diarrhea, the Plantaeris dosage may be safely doubled. You can then bring down the dosage to normal after the episode has passed. Try adding a bit of pumpkin to their diet to help bulk up stools.

How to Administer
Shake well before use. The easiest method is to use the dropper provided and place the drops into your pet’s food or favorite treat. You can also use the dropper and squirt directly into the pet’s mouth.
Some pets can be finicky. If this occurs consider hiding the drops in foods most pets love, such as fish, chicken, yogurt or a favourite treat. If your pet only eats dry food then soak a few kibbles at feeding time.

Will this lead to constipation in my cat?
Plantaeris will not cause constipation; however, it may help stop a cat’s diarrhea.
My cat has explosive diarrhea. What do I do? Will I need to give a larger dose?
If your pet has severe diarrhea, it is safe to give up to double the recommended dosage of Plantaeris. Severe diarrhea can quickly cause dehydration, so it is highly recommended that you see your vet if this is the case.
When should I stop giving the Plantaeris?
Plantaeris is safe to give long-term to help stop a cat’s diarrhea. It can also be given situationally when your pet experiences diarrhea. If you would like to discontinue using it, wait at least three to four days after the diarrhea has cleared up.
How quickly will this affect my cat's loose stools?
We generally expect to see results with the supplements in two to three weeks, though all cases are different. Since Plantaeris is vet-formulated to help stop a cat’s diarrhea, we have found that it is one supplement that may work a bit quicker to help regulate the system, with some seeing results in just a few days.
