A growing number of vets are stating that cooked or processed pet food is the main cause of illness and premature death in the modern house pet!

Animals are meant to eat a 100% raw diet... but is that practical? What is the answer for keeping your pet healthy with a modern pet diet?

The answer is...
Total-Zymes® Digestive Enzyme Formula

A high performance broad-spectrum digestive enzyme formula. Total-Zymes® is the most complete pet digestive enzyme product in the world, NOW utilizing 16 high performance vegetarian enzymes , pre-biotics and our exclusive L.E.A.D.S.® Live Enzyme Activated Delivery System®. L.E.A.D.S.® insures complete digestion and assimilation of all your pet's food at a cellular level.

NEW! Prebiotics; Pre-biotics to help with implantation of the good guy bacteria in the gut.  Pre-biotics- Inulin IQ FOS (Fructooligosaccharides)- one of the best-known pre-biotics, FOS is known to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. It has been shown to stimulate growth of bifidobacteria in the colon.  Healthy colon function is vital to a properly functioning immune system

Digestive enzymes are very specific. They will only digest the exact food type for which they are named. As an example lipase will digest only lipids or fats as they are commonly called. Lipase will not do anything to digest protein or carbohydrates.

For complete digestion you must include all the different enzymes in a product to digest each type of food ingredient. A digestive product that contains only four, five or six enzymes will do a poor job digesting the complex ingredients of today's high quality pet food.

That's why we at NWC Naturals® Pet Products formulated Total-Zymes® with a special blend of SIXTEEN powerful vegetarian enzymes to completely digest and deliver all the nutrients of today's modern pet diet, with just one scoop of Total-Zymes® per cup of any pet food. In addition we have added 120,000 FCCPU of bromelain from pineapple as a systemic enzyme. Bromelain Is most notable for its effectiveness in normalizing inflammation and supports health joints. As a natural systemic enzyme with many uses.

 Using Total-Zymes® on your pet's food is as close as you can get to the benefits of an all raw food diet.

Probiotics are linked to long life. 


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 ill health! Without good bacteria, a pet's body would be unable to have a healthy immune system, absorb food properly, and their intestines become overrun with waste, which set the breeding ground for poor health. Unfortunately, every time your pet drinks chlorinated water, eats fatty foods, gets stressed, or becomes overly tired, good bacteria is destroyed in their body. Even the pet foods we feed our pets to keep them healthy- like meat and poultry- can contain antibiotics, further reducing their levels of good bacteria. For most pets this negatively affects their body's ability to stay healthy on a daily basis.

 

Total-Biotics® is specially formulated with an astounding 14 species of stabilized probiotics, instead of the usual 1 - 6 forms provided in most other products. It also contains over one billion CFUs (colony forming units) in each scoop for maximum protection.

Not all probiotics are alike. Many cheap probiotics are unstable and lose their beneficial properties in the stomach before the probiotics can reach the intestine. Some companies put probiotics in there product that do not implant. We are the experts in this field. The formulator of this product wrote the book "The Wonder of Probiotics".  The Wonder of Probiotics

Pet probiotics     The formulators of Total-Biotics® has over 50 years of knowledge. We have been helping pets for since 2003. Be careful of new companies that do not know pets or probiotics.  

We use the best probiotics to support your pets microbiome.

You must re-seed the gut with probiotics. It is very important for pet owners to understand that something is causing your pet's chronic bad bacteria overgrowth condition. Almost always diet and STRESS are contributing to the imbalance of flora. Select the proper products for your pet to rebalance the flora and immune system. We highly recommend Total-Biotics® and Oxy-pH Boost™  for pets for its excellent quality and has been helping may pets for years.

But why does my pet need so many enzymes? 

 

We have researched many dog and cat foods and treats. Did you know that your pet could be getting added sugars and dairy products? We noticed this trend when we went to the largest pet expo in the U.S., so we added additional enzymes to our already superior formula to handle this trend.

 

We always advise that you do not give your pets sugar, but there are a lot of hidden sugars and dairy you sometimes do not know about in those cute little doggie and kitty cakes and cookies.

 

It is very hard for animals to digest cooked and processed food as it is, so this is why we now have 16 enzymes in our Total-Zymes® formula- so your pet can handle any type of treat or food.

 

Many good pet food companies put a lot of thougt and very good ingredients into their products, but by not digesting it properly, the pet does not get the full benefit out of the food you just spend a lot of money on. This can overwork the pancreas, stress the immune system, and weaken their overall health.

 

Pancreatic Enzymes or Non-animal Enzymes

 

Total-Zymes® For Pets does NOT contain any animal based enzymes and here is why:

Supplemental pancreatic, plant, and microbial enzymes are all designed to enhance digestion. However, plant and microbial enzymes use a "pro-active" approach and begin working on foods soon after ingestion. Pancreatic enzymes do not go to work right away. Pancreatic enzymes usually begin working approximately 30 minutes after food reaches the stomach and up to 80% of the enzymes are destroyed in the stomach. 

 

Because of their stability in the acidic environment of the upper stomach, vegetarian enzymes can begin their digestive action immediately after the food reaches this region. With the increased exposure to digestive enzyme activity, food has a better chance of being broken down into small, more readily absorbed particles.

 

Pancreatic enzymes:

Pet probiotics Will not work in the stomach: Their activity is limited to a narrow pH range
Pet probiotics Have a delayed effect
Pet probiotics Are easily destroyed by acidity of the stomach
Pet probiotics Do not break down fiber and certain carbohydrates
Pet probiotics May cause side effects

 

One pancreatin label actually read: High doses may cause diarrhea, cramping, or vomiting. If you observe any of these reactions, contact your veterinarian immediately. If your pet experiences an allergic reaction to the medication, signs may include facial swelling, hives, scratching, sudden onset of diarrhea, vomiting, shock, seizures, pale gums, cold limbs, or coma. If you observe any of these signs, contact your veterinarian immediately. Precautions: Do not use in animals hypersensitive (allergic) to pork products. The powder may irritate or burn the skin on contact. Wash immediately if you get any on your skin or your pet's skin. Wash hands after handling this medication.

 

Is this something you would give your pet?

 

Total-Zymes® for Pets does not have any side effects. Safe to use and no warnings on the label.

 

Every pet can benefit from supplementation with enzymes and probiotics.

 

Even healthy pets may improve their absorption and utilization of nutrients through the use of digestive enzymes and probiotics. By using a supplemental enzyme on your pet’s food you free up their body's digestive system. When enzymes are missing from our pet's food, the full burden of digestion falls on the pet's own digestive system.

Total-Biotics Ingredients:

Our 14 live stable Probiotic Ingredients:

Pet Digestive Aid      Acidophilus:  Acidophilus is the most effective pro-biotic strain, defending against the greatest number of bad bacteria. Called the "sticker strain," Acidophilus has the ability to actually cling to the intestinal wall without harming it. In fact, it is best known for its ability to move un-disrupted through the stomach and into the intestines where it eats away at bad causing bacteria. It is known for reducing the occurrence of constipation and diarrhea, increasing nutrient uptake (especially calcium).

Pet Digestive Aid      B. bifidum- Is a normal inhabitant of the intestines. Found in large numbers, the numbers of bifidobacteria decrease with age. B. bifidum helps supports normal transportation of waste and promote regular bowel movements.

 

Pet Digestive Aid      Bacillus coagulans-  Bacillus coagulans has been added by the EFSA to their Qualified Presumption of Safety (QPS) list] and has been approved for veterinary purposes by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Center for Veterinary Medicine, as well as by the European Union and is listed by AAFCO for use as a direct fed microbial in livestock production. It is often used in veterinary applications, especially as a probiotic in pigs, cattle, poultry, dog and cats.

 

Pet Digestive Aid      Bifidobacterium breveDifferent species and/or strains of bifidobacteria may exert a range of beneficial health effects, including the regulation of intestinal microbial homeostasis, the inhibition of pathogens and harmful bacteria that can colonize and infect the gut mucosa Bifidobacterium breve is helping to modulate the local and systemic immune responses.

 

Pet Digestive Aid      B. lactis (B. animalis )-  B. lactis is a Gram-positive anaerobic rod-shaped bacterium, which can be found in the large intestines of most mammals, including humans. Bifidobacterium animalis and Bifidobacterium lactis were previously described as two distinct species. Presently, both are considered B. animalis with the subspecies Bifidobacterium animalis subspecies animalis and Bifidobacterium animalis subspecies lactis. Both names B. animalis and B. lactis are still used on product labels, as this species is frequently used as a probiotic in pet products.

 

Pet Digestive Aid      B. longum -  Aids in the cleansing and health of the colon and liver.

 

Pet Digestive Aid      L. brevis-  Lactobacillus brevis is a species of lactic acid bacteria, all of which are Gram-positive, non spore forming organisms whose main metabolic pathway involves fermenting hexose sugars to produce lactic acid. L. brevis can be isolated from the food sources in inhabits, one example being kimchi. This bacteria is probiotic, and supports the immune system.

 

Pet Digestive Aid      L. casei-  Is reported to be one of the most potent defenders from Listeria bacteria. It is also known for its ability to induce an immune response that is helpful in supporting a healthy urinary tract

 

Pet Digestive Aid      L. plantarum-  Can be found in naturally fermented foods. It is found in the large intestine where it helps to break down protein into usable nutrients, thus normalizing inflammation.L. plantarum is also known for repairing free radical damage from aging, stress, antibiotics, chlorinated water and other chemicals. It also contains an antioxidant that helps protect against the toxins present in the Standard Pet Diet.

 

Pet Digestive Aid      L. rhamnosus-  Is one of the more highly studied probiotic strains, primarily used in support of normal gastrointestinal health. It also aids the body in balancing the normal flora ecology and supports a healthy urinary tract.

 

Pet Digestive Aid      Lactococcus lactis- Has been shown through research to produce a high amount of lactic acid, which is able to inhibit the growth of H. pylori, thusly reducing the associated bad bacteria. Is also beneficial to supplement the diet in maintaining normal intestinal flora.

 

Pet Digestive Aid      L. salivarius- Has been shown through research to produce a high amount of lactic acid, which can inhibit the growth of H. pylori bacteria.

 

Pet Digestive Aid      Streptococcus thermophilus- Is known for repairing free radical damage from aging, stress, chlorinated water and other chemicals. It also contains an antioxidant that helps normalize inflammation and protect against bad bacteria.

 

Pet Digestive Aid      L. Bulgaricus- Lactobacillus bulgaricus is one of several bacteria used for the production of yogurt. It is also found in other naturally fermented products.

The other ingredients in Total-Biotics®

 

Pre-biotics- Inulin IQ FOS (Fructooligosaccharides)- one of the best-known pre-biotics, 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 bifidobacteria in the colon where many issues first take root. Supplementing with FOS can greatly increase metabolic activity in the colon and help relieve constipation and reduce the production of intestinal putrefactive substances. Healthy colon function is vital to a properly functioning immune system.

 

The only patented stabilized glutamine in the world- MGG chelate- 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.

Live Enzyme Activated Delivery System® (L.E.A.D.S.®)- Like all of NWC Naturals Pet Products  Total-Biotics® contains our exclusive Live Enzyme Activated Delivery System®. It is this delivery system that guarantees assimilation and utilization of the nutrients at the cellular level. L.E.A.D.S.® (Live Enzyme Activated Delivery System®) is a proprietary system of adding a blend of select enzymes to botanical and whole-food products for the purpose of improving the release and absorption of nutrients contained in these products.

 

This special blend of supplemental enzymes works to extract the nutrients from the formula in the most bioavailable form so your pet's body can use them easily and efficiently.

 

The L.E.A.D.S.® Live Enzyme Activated Delivery System® is formulated to match the specific needs of each individual product made by NWC Naturals Pet Products and are based on a unique and proprietary method. It is especially beneficial with products providing a whole-food source of vitamins, minerals and pro-biotics.

 

Our powders do not contain any, chemicals, gluten, soy, dairy, yeast also wheat free, no eggs, no preservatives, no artificial coloring or flavoring which may cause reactions in some animals.

Pet Digestive Aid      Pectinase; Breaks down fruit and vegetable pectins and and facilitates the transportation of waste.  A much needed enzyme for your pet. Your pet gets heavy metal build up just like we do,  this enzyme helps rid  your pet of theses metals.

 

Pet Digestive Aid      Phytase;  Breaks down carbohydrates, specifically phytates in plants. It can increase mineral absorption and the bio-availability of iron, zinc, calcium, and magnesium. A needed enzyme to help digest pet food with potatoes or carrots ect. Some companies say you do not need this very important enzyme it was put into the formula because pet foods do have carbohydrates and this enzyme helps properly digest them.

 

Pet Digestive Aid       Hemicellulase; Is used to breakdown carbohydrates, especially polysaccharides such as hemicelluloses, which are found in plant foods.

 

Pet Digestive Aid       Bromelain; Is most notable for its effectiveness in normalizing inflammation and supports health joints. As a natural systemic enzyme with many uses.

NEW! Prebiotics; Pre-biotics to help with implantation and growth of the good guy bacteria in the gut.  Pre-biotics- Inulin IQ FOS (Fructooligosaccharides)- one of the best-known pre-biotics, FOS is known to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. It has been shown to stimulate growth of bifidobacteria in the colon where many issues first take root. Healthy colon function is vital to a properly functioning immune system.

Total-Zymes® and Total-Biotics® SUGGESTED USE:

One scoop (approximately 625 mg) of Total-Zymes® and Total-Biotics®  per cup of pet food at each feeding. A free scoop is inside every jar of  both Total-Zymes® and Total-Biotics®. Put the amount of food to be fed for the entire day in a container with a snap on lid. Add one scoop of each formula for each cup of food. You can add them both to the entire days worth of kibble all at one time and then feed out of that container for all the meals that day. You can add Total-Zymes® and Total-Biotics®., if you wish, only to the kibble, but then add enough of both formulas to cover other foods such as canned or roll food that will be added to the dish that day.

 

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 ½ scoop per cup of raw food. The benefit is, Total-Zymes® will replace the enzymes lost in freezing, grinding, storing and handling of the meat. Then the enzymes over and above what is needed to digest the food will be used systemically to normalize inflammatory response. Those enzymes will also work on digesting possible allergens such as pollen, dander, dust mite feces and more. It can also lessen 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 unwanted 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 dogs and cats that are thriving on this adjusted addition of Total-Zymes® and Total-Biotics® to their raw food.

 

Total-Biotics® to help crowd out bad bacteria:

 

When you use Total-Biotics® on your pets’ food to help get rid of unwanted bad guys we recomend you double the normal amount to help get the bad bacteria under control and bring back a good balance. That is two scoops of Total-Biotics® per cup of food, when you feed your pet.

 

You must use Total-Biotics® first 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 the bad bacteria .

Total-Zymes Supp Facts

Total-Biotics Supp Facts

TOTAL-BIOTICS® FAQ

1. Is Total-Biotics® just for sick pets?  
No, this is the most powerful high colony forming formula in the world supplying over 1 Billion CFUs (colony forming units) of 14 different strains of good guy bacteria matched to each cup of food consumed. All pets definitely will benefit greatly from this product, and it is essential that all pets have a daily supplement of probiotics to build their susceptible immune systems.

 

2. What type of research is behind the Total-Biotics® formula?  
Total-Biotics® combines the latest research and clinical studies into one powerful formula. The probiotics in this formula were selected after consulting with Dr. Khem Shahani from the University of Nebraska. Dr. Shahani is recognized as one of the world’s foremost authorities on beneficial bacteria supplementation and is a pioneer in the discovery of DDS-1 Acidophilus.

 

3. Does Total-Biotics® have a bad taste?  
Total-Biotics® basically has no flavor! Since it is all human grade ingredients, try it yourself.

 

4. Are there any side effects?
Total-Biotics® has no known bad side effects.

 

5. If my pet is on medication, can I safely use this formula?
It is safe to take Total-Biotics® along with medication. There are no known drug interactions and the ingredients do not alter the action of any medications. In fact, since antibiotics can actually wreak havoc on your pet’s gut bacteria balance, taking probiotics along with medications can positively affect their health.

 

6. I already give my pet a multi-vitamin, why take this formula in addition?

Multivitamins provide general nutritional support to the body but only if you have enough good bacteria in your body to allow for absorption. Total-Biotics® uses 14 strains of probiotics to help clean your pets system and improve nutrient absorption.

 

7. Why do I have to wait for 1-2 hours before using probiotics after using Oxy-pH Boost™ for pets?

Oxy-pH Boost™ for pets in the long run will promote a healthy probiotic balance by killing bad bacteria overgrowth by suppressing harmful bacteria. It is a bit too strong to be in contact with newly introduced probiotics that are trying to implant and colonize. Waiting the 1-2 hours gives the probiotics a head start to implant and colonize the intestinal tract. Topical application of Oxy-pH Boost™ for pets can be done at any time.

 

8. How do I use Total-Biotics® for bad bacteria overgrowth or general flora inbalance?

When you use Total-Biotics® on your pets’ food we recommend you double the normal suggested amount to help get the bad bacteria overgrowth under control. That is two scoops of Total-Biotics® per cup of food, when you feed your pet. Do that as long as you wish. After good results are achived lower it back down the the maintenance amount.

 

9. Constipation in dogs and cats. Can probiotics and enzymes help?

Total-Biotics® and Total-Zymes® for pets can help support a good bowel movement. Probiotics are responsible for controlling the moisture content of the bowels. With the supplementation of probiotics this will help let things move along. This is not a laxative effect but is part of the natural balance of the colon. Digestive enzymes will help digest the food in the stomach and let it move along.

 

TOTAL-ZYMES ® FAQ

 1. What are enzymes?

 
Enzymes are products that either begin or enhance the speed of chemical reactions. Present in the cells of plants and animals, they regulate biochemical reactions in both active and inactive forms. They are specific with respect to their functions and do only that which they were designed to do.

 

2. Why use non-animal produced enzymes over animal/pancreatic enzymes?

 
The non-animal Vegetarian enzymes are more pure, very proactive, and react faster within their specific task. Animal/pancreatic enzymes, although designed to react the same way, may cause several negative reactions. This is due to the fact they may bring with them inherently non-compatible elements from their originations to your pet. These products generally carry a warning label regarding possible side effects from their use.

 

3. Why TOTAL-ZYMES®?

 
The pet market place is rife with products to aid in issues of every kind. As with most things, you usually do get what you pay for. Unfortunately, many products do use ingredients that will help in those issues, yet they do not put an amount of truly sufficient therapeutic levels. This does not mean they wont help, but they may not help enough. Other products may use very good amounts of a couple of items, and compromise elsewhere. At NWC Naturals Pet Products, we decided to use every element necessary for any food your pet may consume. We also made sure we put more than enough to do the task completely. In addition, the body could loose minerals from itself when this process of enzyme activity takes place, so we added our L.E.A.D.S®. system of minerals so the process would be complete unto itself, without taking minerals away from your pets body. We have also used the best prime sourced ingredients so as not to compromise our product performance. Compare Enzyme Products, we are the only one with 16 plant based enzymes.

4. Is Human Grade better for my pet?

It's not only the high quality ingredients but the way they are manufactured. All of our pet products are formulated for pets and their specific needs. When formulating our enzymes we looked at over 100 different pet foods on the market. With our expertise we developed a product that is far superior than the rest. And yes because it is made in a human grade manufacturer you too can taste it with the same confidence you have with our human products.

Only a facility that actually produces human supplements, undergoes the inspections and approval necessary to have genuine human grade status and therefore, a pet food or supplement must be made in such a plant in order to be called 'human grade'.

The FDA and USDA are responsible for regulating human foods and supplements determining 'edible' status. In order to be allowed to produce human foods, a manufacturing facility undergoes far more frequent and detailed inspections by these and other agencies, compared with the inspection that a pet food plant undergoes.

 

GMP certified. All of our products are made in a factory that is GMP certified and only human grade raw materials are used. Many pet products do not receive this certification. You can never be sure if your pet is really getting the best. At best, you're just wasting money on an ineffective product.

 

5. How does Total-Zymes® for Pets take the stress off my pets pancreas?

 

The primary benefits of enzymes is in shifting a portion of the digestive burden from the pancreas to using the Vegetarian enzymes in the stomach and intestional tract. This simulates the enzymes that are contained in raw food. Continued supplementation over a period of days activates a feedback system to the pancreas, signaling it to decrease production of its enzymes because they are not necessary in as large of amounts. This allows the pancreas, to conserve its cellular machinery for production of insulin and glucagon; which are important in blood glucose maintenance. Thus helping take the stress of the pancreas.

 

6. Constipation in my dog or cat. Can probiotics and enzymes help?

 

Total-Biotics® and Total-Zymes® for pets can help support a normal good bowel movement. Probiotics are responsible for controlling the moisture content of the bowels. With the supplementation of probiotics this will help let things move along. This is not a laxative effect but is part of the natural balance of the colon. Digestive enzymes will help digest the food in the stomach liquefying it and let it move along easly while getting all the nutrition possible out of that food.

 

7.  Are there possible side effects of Probiotics and Enzymes in pets?

 

 Probiotics and or enzymes sometimes can cause nausea or vomiting. When the health of an animal has been compromised for some time, things can start out worse before getting better. This happens in a few pets. Just like people they can have a "cleansing" or a "healing crisis". Experiencing digestive upset with probiotics or enzymes can be related to feeding of a poor quality commercial pet food that is hard to break down and digest. What happens is the food you feed your pet moves slowly through the intestines allowing some fecal plaque to adhere to your dog's intestinal walls. Once it gets a toehold, it may thicken over time. Even fairly young animals can experience some blockage as a result of this build up. Probiotics and enzymes will slowly begin to dissolve the fecal matter, and during this clearing/cleansing process, pathogens and microbes that were covered up with layers of fecal matter will be exposed and can cause episodes of diarrhea or vomiting. Depending on the buildup, it may take a few months before it is completely removed. To help restore your animal's health and happiness we suggest a healthier, more digestible diet and reducing the dosage of probiotics and enzymes to a level tolerated by your animal, building back up gradually as your animal begins to feel better. Think of it as a food change. Pet owners agree to chang a food, you never change it cold turkey. You shoud gradually change the the food from food A to food B. Even though food A and food B are both great quality, a rapid change can cause some stomach upset. Its the same with probiotics and enzymes. In 80% of pets they have no bad reaction introducing probiotics and enzymes. But think of it like a food change. Going from a meal that digests only part way, to using enzymes and getting 100% digestion, the pet may react like its a food change. In this case just like changing a food, go slower adding enzymes and probiotics untill the pets system adjust to higher levels of delivered nutrition. Within a few days or weeks the full amount of enzymes and probiotics can be added to the diet for maximum benefit

 

8. Why does my pet’s stool get smaller with enzymes?

 

A dog or cats digestive system is designed to process only raw food, primarily meat. In the wild no dog or cat would Bar-B-Que their food. Cats and dogs digestive systems are short and food eaten should have a relatively short transit time. Raw food contains all the enzymes needed to digest itself, thus it digests quickly and completely resulting in a small stool. Kibble, canned or other cooked food is lacking the enzymes to digest quickly or completely. When Total-Zymes® is added to cooked food the food is properly digested quickly and efficiently resulting in smaller stools and better health.

 

9.  What if I feed my pet Raw Food?

 

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 ½ scoop per cup of raw food. The benefit is, Total-Zymes® will replace the enzymes lost in freezing, grinding, storing and handling of the meat. Then the enzymes over and above what is needed to digest the food will be used systemically to normalize inflammatory response. Those enzymes will also work on digesting 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 unwanted 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 dogs and cats that are thriving on this adjusted addition of Total-Zymes® and Total-Biotics® to their raw food.
