What is Immune SURE?
Immune SURE with Vitamin C and zinc is a powerhouse for supporting feline immune function. We call this product our "first-aid formula" because it is equally capable of supporting against viral AND bacterial microorganisms. The herbs in this formula have strong anti-microbial properties.
Unlike antibiotics, the ingredients in Immune SURE will not compromise the natural gut flora, a key component of healthy immunity. It has been said that 80% of a mammal's immunity is in the gut. By keeping this "first line of defense" intact, it not only helps combat current pathogens but may help prevent recurring infections that are more likely when the gut flora is weakened.
As with humans, the young and the elderly are the most vulnerable to infection, so it is important to pay particular attention that our felines' health does not become compromised at these life stages.
What is Immune SURE used for?
Immune SURE is a multi-purpose formula designed to support the immune system against many of the microorganisms that can cause infections. Most notably these would be bacteria and viruses.
Immune SURE may help support against:
- Viruses (such as FeLV, FIV, FIP and herpes)
- Bacteria (such as gastrointestinal, urinary, skin and respiratory)
- Fungal problems
- Allergic responses
- Environments where infections can be passed (such as kennels)
Many of the conditions above can receive treatment that is specific to that condition. For example, if your feline had a urinary tract infection, we would recommend Urinary Gold http://www.petwellbeing.com/products/urinary-gold-for-feline-urinary-tract-health as the primary formula to administer. Similarly, Life Gold http://www.petwellbeing.com/products/cat-cancer is designed to support pets with cancer.
In those cases, Immune SURE provides extra support and insurance for the immune system.
For other conditions such as viral infections, Immune SURE is Pet Wellbeing's primary formula.
Immune SURE can be used whenever the immune system requires extra support.
A Note from our Veterinarian...
You and your veterinarian are the best judges of what type of immune support your feline will benefit from. What we do know is that antibiotics have seen extensive use (some would say overuse or indiscriminate use) over many decades but there is certainly a very appropriate time and place to use them. Herbal medicine provides some potent and very effective antimicrobial products that have been proven to exhibit a broad spectrum of activity against bacterial and viral organisms.
Fortunately, we have ALL of these products at our disposal: antibiotics and herbal-based broad antimicrobials such as Immune SURE.
Immune SURE can be used as the primary treatment when the animal presents with an infection; it can also be used as a secondary remedy. For example, for a respiratory infection, I would first use a product specific to that condition and recommend Immune SURE as an adjunct remedy to help maintain overall immunity.
For a condition like feline leukemia virus (FeLV), feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) or feline infectious peritonitis (FIP), Immune SURE would be principle natural treatment. While no cures for these conditions exist, the immune system requires support, possibly decreasing the likelihood of secondary infections.
Probiotics, such as Pet Wellbeing's Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains, are also a key treatment for supporting immune function and can be given daily.
Never underestimate the health potential of optimal feline nutrition. Feeding your cat a natural, healthy diet is the best immune support you can give him or her. If you haven't already, consider an unprocessed, cereal-free diet.
*Never give an animal antibiotics prescribed for a human.
Can my cat take Immune SURE with medications?
Do not use with blood thinners. Use with caution in cardiac or kidney conditions, or if taking steroid medications. Use with caution if animal has a known allergy to bee stings as this product contains propolis, derived from bees.
Are there any side effects or precautions?
Not to be used during pregnancy or nursing. If animal's condition worsens or does not improve, stop product administration and consult your veterinarian. Excessive or long term use may contribute to water retention or hypertension. An examination from a veterinarian is recommended prior to using this product.
Does it come with a guarantee?
Yes! Immune SURE comes with a 90 day money-back guarantee.

What is our Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains?
This is a high potency probiotic supplement for pets, supplying nine different strains of probiotics with added prebiotics. Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains contains beneficial strains specific for dogs and cats, at a highly effective potency.
Beneficial bacteria exist throughout the bodies of humans and animals. They are vital to our existence and regulate numerous physiological processes. These organisms are passed from a mother to the offspring during birth and begin to populate the body inside and out, including the mucosa of the digestive tract and the layers of the skin. Throughout life, there are many things we come into contact with that can harm this microbiome or microflora, as it is sometimes called. Stressors can include medications, infections, environmental toxins and unhealthy foods.
Ingesting beneficial bacteria through foods and supplements supports the microbiome to stay strong and healthy. Probiotic bacteria are a normal and necessary part of the body's defence against harmful pathogens. Without these beneficial bacteria, the body is less resistant to infections, has difficulty digesting foods and displays less neurological stability.
Be sure when comparing the strengths of different probiotic supplements, that you are comparing the same milligrams or grams. Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains guarantees the viability of the healthy bacterial strains until the date of expiry at 5 billion CFU (organisms) per 500 milligrams (equivalent to 10 billion CFU per gram).
FOS (Fructooligosaccharides) are added as a prebiotic and soluble fiber to support the health of the probiotics as well as the beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract.
What is Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains used for?
Increasing research demonstrates just how important a healthy balance of intestinal bacteria really is. Of all the cells that comprise the immune system, approximately 70% of those cells are located in the intestines. When pathogens are orally introduced into the body, the cells in the gut provide a major part of the body's natural defenses and ability to fight harmful bacteria and viruses. This is true for humans as well as animals. Put simply, healthy gut flora help maintain a strong immune system.
The key to maintaining a healthy balance of flora is to incorporate probiotics into a daily regimen and/or make probiotic-rich foods part of a regular diet. Probiotics are found in lacto-fermented foods, such as fermented sauerkraut (i.e. not the kind made with vinegar or wine). Fermented dairy products such as unsweetened yogurt and kefir also help supply the body with beneficial bacteria.
Why do so many animals require probiotics for optimal health? As mentioned, the factors that can damage this vital microbiome in the digestive tract range from unhealthy foods to environmental toxins to medications. A single course of antibiotic treatment, though sometimes absolutely necessary, can wipe out the intended harmful bacteria it is meant to destroy but also the beneficial bacteria, leaving the body vulnerable to recurring infections, digestive problems, allergies and more.
Besides the maintenance of good health, there are many conditions that benefit from the use of probiotics:
- Sensitivities, particularly diet-related
- Bowel health and Digestion
- Urinary tract
- Skin disorders
- Physical and emotional stress
- Before and after kennel boarding
- Diet change
- If taking medications, especially antibiotics
Always seek the consultation of your veterinarian, as needed.
A Note from our Veterinarian...
I can't stress enough the importance of regular feeding of probiotics to your cat. It might help to think of probiotics as a food and in many ways. They are a part of food that most people eat very little of in their modern diets and something cats receive little to none of, unless your cat enjoys regular servings of fermented sauerkraut. I know my cat doesn't!
Probiotics are safe and effective and Pet Wellbeing's Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains supplies the correct strains, in the correct potency, to deliver a comprehensive product. Unfortunately, there are too many probiotic products available that offer a shortage of strains (or strains that may not be very useful to pets) in less than ideal quantities. Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains supplies 10 billion organisms per 1.2 grams
Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains stays freshest if refrigerated after opening.
Probiotics are easily mixed with food, although most cats will happily lick the powder up, given the naturally pleasant taste. Probiotics are ideally given after a meal but really can be given at any time, including with food. It is far better to feed at any time of day, than not at all, including on an empty stomach. There will be no issues tolerating probiotics on an empty stomach.
My recommendation is to incorporate probiotics into your pet's diet any time and not wait until there is a big need. It is some of the best insurance you can provide for the future health of your pet.
Can my cat take Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains with prescription drugs?
As a general rule, it is not recommended to administer anything else if you give your cat blood thinners.
Does it come with a guarantee?
Yes! Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains comes with a 90 day, money-back guarantee.
