One scoop (approximately 625 mg) of Total-Zymes® 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 the enzymes 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®, 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 or cats 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 help support the body systemically.
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 probiotics
Our List of Our 16 Enzymes:
Protease 6.0; Is used to break down proteins to peptides. It will not digest protein to amino acids. A second enzyme is necessary for that to happen.
Protease 3.0; Is used to break down proteins in a different PH range.
Protease 4.5; Is used to break down proteins in a different PH range then the other two.
Peptidase; Help digest protein molecules. Four varieties of protease enzymes have been combined in this formula to compensate for higher protein diets of pets.
Amylase; An enzyme that breaks down sugars and starches. Good for those hidden sugars in pet treats. And helps digest corn, potatoes, rice ect.
Alpha-Galactosidase; This enzyme breaks down carbohydrates, such as vegetables, whole grains. It can help support normal gas.
Beta-Glucanase; This enzyme is used to breakdown carbohydrates, specifically starches.
Diastase; Sometimes called maltase is an enzyme that is the catalyst in the hydrolysis of disaccharide maltose to the simple sugar form - glucose.
Lipase; Will digest lipids or fats as they are commonly called. Lipase is critical to digest that fat in the diet that supports a healthy coat and skin.
Cellulase; Works on Cellulose, an indigestible fiber found in many fruits and vegetables.
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.
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.
Hemicellulase; Is used to breakdown carbohydrates, especially polysaccharides such as hemicelluloses, which are found in plant foods.
Bromelain; Is most notable for supporting the body as a systemic enzyme. As a natural systemic enzyme with many uses.
NEW! Lactase; Helping digest, Lactose and milk sugars. Lactase is required to break down lactose (a primary sugar found in mammalian milk). Also to help digest yogurt, milk products and cheese.
NEW! Glucoamylase; Is used to breakdown carbohydrates, specifically polysaccharides, simple sugars. Many new dog treats have hidden sugar.
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
