Can anyone recommend a good brand of Probiotics?

I\'m not sure which forum this question belongs in and my apologies if this is the wrong place to post this. After suffering from chronic constipation for almost 3 years and needing to take lactulose every day to poop, I\'ve reversed course and for the past two months my stools have been loose and not getting any firmer. Mommy is going to try slippery elm bark (anyone have any recommendations for a good product?) and others have recommended giving me probiotics. One recommended brand was Celestial Cats. Has anyone ever heard of that brand? Can anyone recommend a good brand of probiotics? Thank you!

    Our vet gives us FortiFlora when we need a probiotic. Canned pumpkin (pure pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling) can help with loose stools, too.

    Thank you Beatrice! Hmm . . . pumpkin is good for loose stools and constipation? Will have to try it!
