For centuries natives of the Balkan islands have enjoyed extraordinary long and healthy lives. It was eventually determined that their good fortune was, in part, due to the fact that they ingest large quantities of lactobacilli (good bacteria) at every meal.
A Large breed pet weighing 65-70 pounds needs up to 1.5 pounds of beneficial bacteria in its gut to protect against disease and illness!
Without good bacteria, a pet's body would be unable to fight off disease, absorb food properly, and their intestines become overrun with toxins and waste, which set the breeding ground for disease.
Unfortunately, every time your pet drinks chlorinated water, eat fatty foods, get stressed or become overly tired, good bacteria is destroyed in their bodies. Even the pet foods we feed our pets to keep them healthy, like meat and poultry can contain antibiotics, further reducing the levels of good bacteria.
For most pets this means they are negatively affecting their bodies' ability to stay healthy on a daily basis.
Pro means For. Biotic means Life.
Probiotics, sometimes called “friendly bacteria,” are beneficial microorganisms that naturally inhabit the human digestive system.
Probiotic bacteria in our pets bodies are essential to maintaining good health, as proven by many years of scientific research! Normally your pets have an abundance of friendly bacteria, but certain circumstances can lead to a depletion of these essential microorganisms.
Major Factors Affecting Your Pets Natural Balance of Friendly Bacteria:
Stress opens the door to disease
The extent of the damage to the protective barrier depends on the nature of the stress experienced by the animal. Such as giving birth, lactation and weaning. Also any type of surgery or chronic stresses. You know how your pet sometimes hates being left alone it can be very stressful to a pet. Also pain, itching/biting insects can keep a pet up and stressed. Even a good old visit to the Vet. Probiotics can be used preventively in either case by simply choosing the correct balance of probiotics.
Age or Illness
Studies have shown that over time, the body becomes less efficient at digesting food and maintaining high levels of probiotics in the intestines. If an animal does get sick, the more concentrated forms of probiotics can help the animal recover. How? When an animal becomes ill, the digestive tract shuts down and all available resources are directed to the immune system. With probiotics and enzymes you can jump start their immune system.
Everything from eating sticks and grass, to dietary changes experienced when being boarded or even just you being gone for the day can rock the delicate balance of good bacteria… which opens the door to less-than-optimal health. Add to that poor diet choices (some people food snacks) and highly processed pet foods as well as unfiltered water and water from the tap that has chlorine in it. Also stress filled environment and you can quickly understand why protecting your pet's immune system, healthy digestion, and overall good health is so important.
Not All Probiotics Products Are The Same.
Many cheap probiotics are unstable and lose their beneficial properties in the stomach before the probiotics can reach the intestine. The intestine is where the probiotics need to implant in order to seed the intestinal tract with healthy flora. They must have the proper amount of CFU's.
Total-Biotics® is THE ONLY pet probiotic formula in the world that uses the only patented stabilized glutamine in the world- MGG chelate- from Albion Labs. The only company with true patented chelates.
This stabilized Glutamine re-writes the book on utilizing anabolic nitrogen molecules to help cleanse and fortify the body. Glutamine yields beneficial effects on the intestinal mucosa and is also the major metabolic fuel for the small intestine.
The addition of the chelated glutamine to Total-Biotics ®, greatly improves the stability and colonization characteristics of beneficial bacteria in the pet's intestinal tract and is an essential nutrient that is required by the intestinal cells. It can actually help repair a damaged intestinal tract. We are the only formulators that use this patented stabilized glutamine in our pet products.
Also included in this great formula is Pre-biotics- Inulin IQ FOS (Fructooligosaccharides) - One of the best-known prebiotics, FOS is a class of simple carbohydrates found naturally in certain plants, such as Jerusalem artichokes, onions and bananas. FOS is known to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. It has been shown to stimulate growth of Bifidobacterium in the colon facilitating good colonization.

Total-Biotics® SUGGESTED USE:
One scoop (approximately 625 mg) of each product per cup of pet food. A free scoop is inside every can of Total-Biotics®.
Total-Biotics® for candida and yeast.
When you use Total-Biotics® on your pets' food you can double the normal dose to help get the yeast under control. That is two scoops of Total-Biotics® per cup of food, when you feed your pet.
You must use first Total-Biotics® to reseed the gut with good guy bacteria and also use Oxy-pH Boost™ to help enhance the implantation of the probiotics and help fight bacteria.
Directions for raw fed pets.
Assuming that you are feeding only 100% raw meat with no potatoes, rice or vegetables that needs to be cooked. What I recommend for raw fed dogs is this. Cut the amount of Total-Zymes® to ¼ to ½ scoops per cup of raw food. The benefit is, Total-Zymes® will replace the enzymes lost in freezing and handling of the meat. Then the enzymes over and above what is needed to digest the food will be used systemically to combat inflammation and joint discomfort. Those enzymes will also work on possible allergens such as pollen, dander, dust mite feces and more. It can also prevent a reaction with flea bite saliva; there is a protein in flea's salvia that causes the itch.
Total-Biotics® on the other hand should be doubled to two scoops per cup of raw food. This will insure your pet's intestinal tract will remain well populated with good bacteria thus crowding out bad bacteria and yeasts. Because the meat is not a fresh kill, like it would be in the wild, (a squirrel or rabbit) and has been handled in a commercial meat packing plant the possibility of bacterial contamination is greater (E.coli, salmonella ,etc.). Remember freezing does not kill bacteria.
We have many raw fed dog and cats that are thriving on this adjusted dosing of Total-Zymes® and Total-Biotics
