Feline Comfort is a supplement that promotes normal digestion in cats and enhances gastrointestinal function. It has been carefully formulated to meet the special needs of domesticated animals.
Cat diarrhea can be difficult to treat for three reasons.
There are many substances that can destabilize the gastrointestinal function of cats: foods, contaminants, vaccines, drugs. etc..
With cat diarrhea, there are predisposing conditions (genetics, stress, location changes, health history).
Finally, time is a critical factor as the longer as feline diarrhea persists, the more body systems degenerate. Electrolytes are excreted, tissues become water logged and slough off, acidity builds up, and pathogenic bacteria take over the microbiological population.
Feline Comfort addresses all of the physical and nutritional requirements. It soothes and rebuilds the GI lining, and restores microbiological balance, for many cats this is sufficient to bring about balance.
Pet Flora Our proprietary collection of soil-based organisms, probiotics that suppress yeast and fungi, reduces acidity, and improves nutrient assimilation.
Arabinogalactan While Arabinogalactan and its constituent parts are common in nature, the commercial extraction is taken from a Larch tree. It is a water soluble fiber that also enhances immune competence. Arabinogalactan is a long chain polysaccharide containing arabinose and galactose monosaccharides. Arabinogalactan is actively fermented by intestinal microflora and is effective at increasing beneficial anaerobes such as those in Pet Flora.
Super Pet Enzymes are a broad spectrum enzyme formulation that will digest the complete range of food items.
Additionally, we add generous amounts of bromelain and serrapeptase, two proteases that have an exceptional ability to reduce inflammation.
L-Glutamine Peptide-bound form, amino acid, is the most easily assimilated form of L-Glutamine. This form is absorbed up to 20 times better than free form amino acids. The most eager consumers of glutamine are the cells in the intestines, the kidney cells for the acid-base balance, activated immune cells and many cancer cells.
Slippery Elm An Herbal preparation made from the slippery inner bark of a type of elm tree. Slippery elm has been used for centuries in North America for medicinal purpose; it calms irritation, by gently coating the lining of the intestinal system, and soothes the digestive system. It is good for both diarrhea and constipation, as it softens and adds smooth bulk to the stool. Slippery Elm is also highly nutritious with lots of antioxidants.
Psyllium Seed Powder A mucilaginous herb that soothes the intestinal contents. The indigestible mucilage (active principle) is found both in the whole seed and the husk and swells when it comes in contact with water. Psyllium is used for chronic yeast infections. It is employed to prevent the systemic absorption of the yeast’s metabolic wastes that many individuals are sensitive to. Absorbs water, normalizes stools.
Tuna Flavor is natural and hypoallergenic.The flavor is extracted from tuna, but contains almost no tuna protein.
Beef Liver Powder is from Argentinian natural grass fed cows. This powder is the highest quality human grade available. These cows have never been on feed lots and freely roam the Pampas.

And Thank You for the Feline Comfort product that I'm convinced has saved my babies life this year. After fighting infection after infection I remembered this stuff for tummy issues and once I began giving it to her three times a day we haven't had an infection since. I feel that the Feline Comfort strengthens her system to fight off the bad stuff. At 18 years old, with kidney disease, she can use all the help I can get her for immune strength.
Thank you again and have a wonderful day and weekend!"
With your sage advice and all of the Vitality Science products that I have been giving Reggie, along with Nature's Variety wet food and their Raw Boost Freeze Dried Dry food he has begun gaining weight and is finally pretty consistently producing firm bowel movements. He still has his episodes of throwing up and loose bowels occasionally but he is infinitely better than he was a month ago and I'm hopeful he'll keep improving day by day. I know that IBS can be chronic and very difficult to treat so I'm taking it one day at a time. So I wanted to say thank you, thank you for working with me to treat him! I can't guarantee I won't contact you again regarding Reggie because I'm not taking anything for granted. But I didn't want to let any more time go by before I thanked you for helping me out.
Best, Jean Martinez
"Dear Vitality Science:
Im starting to see a difference in my 14 yr old cat Bug after starting her on Feline Comfort. She is a long haired cat who in the last couple of years developed a flea allergy which causes her to overgroom herself and swallow alot of hair which her poor body tries to expel from the front to the back in the form of hairballs and diarrhea. I tried everything, changed to a homemade raw diet, gave her a haircut, kept her covered in diatomaceus earth, tried different digestive enzymes and probiotics- but as soon as the allergy would flair up, the diarrhea would come back and was taking longer and longer to clear up. Finally after extensive googling I found your website and ordered the Feline Comfort and Im so glad I did, in the last week she has started to have mostly firm stools again and seems alot happier. I will keep her on the Feline Comfort and also ordered the Super Food.
Thank you and if you have any suggestions about supplements and diet for her, please let me know.
Daniela, Bug and Fleur (the other kitty:)
I'm so happy to let you know that Daisy is doing SO much better. She is getting the Feline Comfort daily and is continuing to do really well. It's a stark contrast to December, when her diarrhea and vomiting were really taking their toll on her. I emailed Christmas Day, as I was so worried about her. She wasn't keeping any food down and seemed to be failing before my eyes. Stephen was so kind to email me back quickly and give advice as to how to deal with what was happening. She's eating like a little piggy and the best part is, she is playing again - something she hasn't done for a very long time.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your wonderful products and your amazing customer service and support. I would be hugging you and tearing up if I were to thank you in person, Stephen. I've been telling everyone I know with cats with digestive issues about the Vitality Science products and singing your praises in the Cat IBD forum in Yahoo groups too.
With best regards and much appreciation," Lois
"…Now we take care of close to 30 stray cats. When it is cold out, some come in on the porch to sleep. The shelters are all full and no one seems to want more cats. We try to get them fixed, so not to get more, but can't always keep up. One of the females who had been fixed, started having diarrhea. I tried for 3 months to stop it. I cooked just chicken and rice, tried kaopectate, but nothing helped. I searched the internet and found Vitality Science. I decided it was cheaper than another Vet appointment and it was also guaranteed, so I ordered Feline Comfort and Vital Pet Lipids. She was better in 4 days and much better by weeks end. Since then I have used it for many cats with great results every time.
One cat we called Suzie was laying on our porch step close to death. I brought her in, wrapped her in a towel and called Mr. Becker. He sent Herbal Anti Inflammatory. I gave her that, Feline comfort and Vital lipids for a week. She was much better and was able to walk again…
I bought some for my Mother in law-s 16 year old cat and she is feeling much better and can move easier now. I have been very impressed by the products I have tried. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it. Mr. Becker answered an email question with a phone call. He explained many of the problems and helped immensely. I'm surprised and happy that in this day and age there is still a company that is so very good and helpful also. Thank you from the many benefactors of your kindness."

"I wanted to give you the biggest thank you!
A few months ago we found a cat outside of our home - she was declawed and fixed. I'm not sure if she was lost or someone tossed her. We ended up bringing her inside and naming her Sissy! Sissy is now a member of the family and the most friendly cuddle buddy! She is always purring and wanting love. After sissy was brought inside we noticed she was puking a lot. Almost everyday after she ate we were cleaning up a mess. We thought maybe hair balls? We switched food and switched food and got hair ball treats-that didn't work. I then took her to our local vet. They had no clue -they wanted to do x rays, blood work, etc. I was willing to do everything they offered-I didn't want Sissy to suffer an live another day like this.
So I left the vet with another appointment scheduled. I went home and thought about everything-got on the iPad and searched on google until I came across Vitality Science. I saw all of the amazing testimonials. I decided to try Vitality Science before spending hundreds of dollars at the vet. On a whim I ordered Feline Comfort and Luxolite.
wow is all i can say. AWESOME RESULTS!! I am not kidding, the day I gave sissy both medications- she went from puking everyday to not puking at all!! I am completely shocked. She is finally getting back to being a healthy little girl again.
I cannot thank Vitality Science enough. They not only saved me hundreds of dollars but have brought the life back to my sweet innocent little girl Sissy. I will continue to purchase from Vitality Science for all of my cats. I will no longer go to the vet before I try curing or helping an issue with Vitality Science. THANK YOU SO MUCH! You guys are truly amazing and so are the products. Customer service is even great:) :)

First of all, I would sincerely like to thank you for all your help in stabilizing my Persian Cat, Cheddar. He was finally diagnosed with a bacterial overgrowth of Clostridium Perfringens. Our vet feels that he does not have an optimum immune system and that any little stress causes him difficulties. He also had ringworm at less than a year old.
At any rate, I have been able to stabilize him by using 3/4 tsp Feline Comfort 2 x day along with some extra fiber and vitamins. He has not had any bloody loose stools since starting the Felne Comfort and is generally quite active and social.
Right now he is back on antibiotics to control the bacterial overgrowth, along with the Feline Comfort, fiber, and vitamins. His food was successfully changed to Wellness (at your recommendation) and he is doing well with it.

We have had our cat Mayor for over 8 years, getting him from a shelter, and he has been a great addition to the family. However, he has had bowel problems for his entire life; he could not make it to the litter box, he would meow in pain due to gas, accidents all over the place. It was truly terrible. We tried everything - steroids, various diets including raw food, all types of medicine, going to the Vet and subjecting him to every test available. Nothing worked. But now, we have him on a Pet Flora and Feline Comfort regiment and it works wonders! No more painful meows! Very little oops cannott make it! He is much happier

"Hey, Thanks so much for the extra items. I have been waiting to see how my cat was feeling before I emailed you. Your products are great! Tux seems to have bounced back.
On the 10th of December Tux started vomiting. The next afternoon I brought him to the vet. They ran test and e-rays, kept him a couple of days and I picked him up Sat. morning. All the test were good; the vet had no idea what could be wrong. He wouldn't eat for the vet, so they sent him home with anti-nausea meds. When he came home he had diarrhea and nausea. Even on the anti-nausea meds he would get sick. I was afraid to bring him back to the vet since he was so unhappy there and the vet had no idea what was wrong.
My girlfriend suggested that I treat him like I would myself, naturally. Before I found your site, I had started him on Happy Bellies Oatmeal with probiotics. It seemed to help but not completely. Then I found your site, it was such a blessing.
HE HAS NOT BEEN SICK ONCE SINCE HE STARTED YOUR PRODUCTS!!! I've forwarded a letter with the link to your site to ALL my friends who are animal lovers.
