How does Total-Biotics™ help my dog?
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 you’re pet drinks chlorinated water, eat fatty foods, get stressed or become overly tired, your pet unknowingly kills the good bacteria 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 every day, the lack of pro-biotics negatively affects their bodies’ ability to stay healthy.
Active Ingredient Overview
Acidophilus DDS-1 strain- researched and developed by Dr. Khem Shahani for over 77 years, Acidophilus is the most effective pro-biotic strain, defending against the greatest number of pathogens; inhibiting 11 disease-causing 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 disease causing bacteria. It is known for reducing the occurrence of constipation and diarrhea, increasing nutrient uptake (especially calcium), preventing food poisoning and alleviating dermatitis and other skin and coat conditions.
B. bifidum-Is a normal inhabitant of the intestines. Found in large numbers, the numbers of bifidobacteria decrease with age. B. bifidum helps detoxify the intestines and promote regular bowel movements.
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.
Bifidobacterium breve Different 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.
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.
B. longum Aids in the cleansing and health of the colon and liver.
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 improves the immune system.
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
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 and in treating the pain caused by arthritis.
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.
Lactococcus lactisHas 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 inflammation and risk of peptic ulcers. Is also beneficial to supplement the diet in maintaining normal intestinal flora.
L. salivarius Has been shown through research to produce a high amount of lactic acid, which can inhibit the growth of H. pylori bacteria.
Streptococcus thermophilus Is known for repairing free radical damage from aging, stress, antibiotics, chlorinated water and other chemicals. It also contains an antioxidant that helps normalize inflammation and protect against the toxins.
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 diseases 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.

Questions and Answers
1. Is Total-Biotics® just for sick pets?
No, this is the most powerful high colony forming formula in the world supplying over one Billion CFUs of 14 different strains of good guy bacteria matched to each cup of food consumed. Pets that are convalescing defiantly will benefit greatly from this product, but is essential that all pets have a daily supplement of pro-biotics to build and maintain their susceptible immune systems. Raw fed pets should get double the dose to protect from salmonella and e. Coli often found in raw food.
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 the world’s foremost authority on beneficial bacteria supplementation and is a pioneer in the discovery of DDS-1 Acidophilus.

Backed by our full satisfaction guarantee
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®
