How does FiRM UP work?
FIRM UP supports stool consistency and regularity in dogs and cats. It does this through the fiber in the Whole Pumpkin and Apple Fiber. It works great when switching foods or when GI upset occurs unexpectedly. It works for both diarrhea and constipation. How? Diarrhea is a LACK of water absorption the colon and lower bowel. Fiber (FIRM UP) directly aids in forming solid stool by slowing down digestion and the passage of waste, giving the body more time to naturally absorb water. On the other paw, Constipation is TOO MUCH water reabsorbing into the body due to the slow passage of waste matter through the colon. The result is dry and difficult to pass stools. Fiber (FIRM UP) will keep some of this water from being re - absorbed by the colon, giving the colon the fluids needed for hard to pass stools.
