The New PET Plus Formulation

What Has Changed In PET Plus?


Probiotics are more important than ever right now, so we have increased the amounts and species. Saccharomyces cerevisiae, also known as Brewer’s Yeast and Nutritional Yeast, have recently been discovered to be very important probiotics, as well as their great value in supplying B vitamins and amino acids.

Completely unrelated to the pathogenic yeasts like Candida Albicans, the presence of Saccharomyces cerevisiae protects the body from invasion by such pathogens by living in the spaces the pathogens would otherwise try to occupy.

Lactobacillus plantarum and Lactobacillus acidophilus have long been recognised as essential inhabitants of the digestive system of all mammals. Protecting the gut from invasion by pathogens by their very presence and production of a mildly acidic micro-environment, we have increased the numbers significantly.


Prebiotics are essential supports for the probiotics. Largely comprising plant fibre, the healthy gut biome (probiotics) digests and thrives on these otherwise indigestible plant components. This internal ‘farm’ allows the body to absorb and use many of the inorganic (not plant based) minerals consumed as well as producing numerous vitamins, most notably, Vitamin B12.

Orafit Inulin has been chosen specifically for this purpose, replacing the Frutafit Inulin in the previous formulation. Beetroot fibre also fulfils this role and has been reduced to 70 mg as in large amounts, it can increase bowel activity in sensitive individuals. Virtually all the other ingredients in this formulation contain plant fibres which also act as prebiotics. So the probiotics already existing in the gut and those in the PET Plus are beautifully supported and enhanced by the vast range of prebiotics in PET Plus.

Essential Fatty Acids

Essential fatty acids (omega 3,6,9) are provided by all the plant ingredients, but specifically by flax seed powder (very rich in the anti-inflammatory omega 3), hemp seed powder, chlorella and orange safflower petals. The balance of omega 3,6 and 9 needs to be in favour of omega 3, but a healthy, raw source of all the omegas is important to support hormone production, cell wall strength and numerous other bodily functions. We have increased the amounts of all of these specific ingredients.

Antioxidants, Vitamins And Minerals

These are all readily available in all the ingredients, but the grasses are specifically rich sources. We have increased the quantities of the alfalfa, barley and wheat grass juice powders to reflect the growing need for more cellular protection afforded by these grasses. The Kamut Wheat Grass is the very best source of the whole spectrum of nutrients, being the first recognised species of wheat.  Using the grass portion, not the seed, automatically ensures there is no gluten in Pet Plus. Bilberry juice powder continues to contribute enormously.

Coenzyme Q10

This is essential for the production of energy by the mitochondria, the energy powerhouses in every cell. With the environmental challenges faced by all living entities, the increase in Coenzyme Q10 to 30mg per half teaspoon (2.5g) will help with the efficient production of energy.


L-Taurine is normally produced by dogs, but not by cats who must obtain this essential nutrient from their food. Recently it has become apparent that dogs can no longer make their own, so we have increased the amount of Taurine in Pet Plus to 100 mg per half teaspoon (2.5g)


This continues its astonishing role of protein digestion, assimilation and efficient use in the body.


Enzymes are essential for every living process and have always been a major component of PET Plus. We have added Invertase to the proprietary enzyme blend to help with the digestion of carbohydrates.

We have also gone metric, so the pot sizes are now 100g and 400g which has also enabled us to keep the prices the same. We are proud to have had no price increases in 26 years!

In Conclusion

There have been some subtle changes to the formulation to enhance its already superb effectiveness. We have increased some and decreased other ingredients to make Pet Plus the best whole superfood based vegan nutritional supplement in the world.

  1. Thank you for updating us with the components of the new formula. We were recommended to the use of Pet Plus from our breeder who researches the importance for ensuring the health of her dogs and have been using your product for approximately 3 years. It is good to know that by giving our dog Per Plus we are looking after his health and well-being. We have also recommended your product to friends and to other pet owners.

  2. My 14 year old Golden Doodle has had Pet Plus for years added to his food. He is a healthy boy and loves life.

  3. Cannot be without it! It's the only thing that works and prevents 3-4 weekly visits to the vets to have the dogs anal glands emptied. We tried everything before all types of foods, feeding regime and supplements. This is the only thing that works. I really hope the formula is just as effective. I also think its been helpful (along with bone broth) and improved my dogs 'snow nose' after a few years returning it to normal texture and better colouring. Thank goodness for you, I am constantly recommending this product to friends for their ailing pets. Diolch yn fawr.

  4. Thank you enormously for taking the time to explain the components of the new formula so fully and effectively.

    It makes me (almost) glad that you endured the delays and challenges with this most recent production because you’ve plainly used the opportunity to make some super improvements!

    I’m very excited to resume my long term - almost ten years now I believe - use of this unique, wonderful product for my eleven year old Maltese.

    Thank you hugely again 🙏

  5. Our lurcher Milo is on petplus after a recommendation from our vets, we were advised that the taurine in it can help with epilepsy, obviously it was very worrying for us when you said it would not be available for some time, I looked at other products but did not find one that comes remotely close to being as good as petplus is.
    Keep up the good work and we look forward to ordering again soon.

  6. Sounds great. I used to give it to our beautiful Cockapoo Rolo who was sadly killed by a car - the driver suddenly came onto the wrong side of the road. We now have a Cockapoo called Mila - she's 5 months old. Is she too young for Pet Plus?

    1. Thanks Joanna. I remember the horror of that event with poor Rolo.
      There is no age limit at all with Pet Plus. The younger the better! I have puppies and kittens licking it from their mothers' breasts while suckling. A great idea!!!
      I think we will very soon have it available again. Just waiting for the US authorities to approve the documents. A proper nightmare!!!
      Thanks for your patience and understanding.

  7. Thankyou for such a informative letter and the valued research you put into the Petplus got my cats .I look forward to re ordering when available

  8. Hi Susy,

    What a very interesting article about the new PetPlus.
    I wonder why it is that dogs are not longer making taurine? Could it be the effect of low grade nutrition over several decades?
    I can't wait to order my next Petplus for my cats.
    Best wishes,

    1. Yes, I think it is exactly that and over vaccination, too much exposure to drugs, chemicals, environmental toxins, electromagnetic frequencies, noise, pollution, chemical laden water as well as the lack of exercise, fresh air, sunlight and a natural environment. It's actually a miracle that anything survives with our unnatural lifestyles in our current environment!!!!!!

  9. Dear Susanna, wonderful news although I had no idea that Pet Plus could be EVEN better than previously! Originally, I think the formula years ago contained garlic, is it no longer included please?
    All the best to you and thank you for your exceptionally good food supplement. I rely on it with my pancreatic dog.

    1. Thanks Mary.
      Yes, I took garlic out many years ago when there was some evidence of it being a cumulative toxin. Our pets take Pet Plus every day for their whole lives, so every ingredient needs to have a perfect track record!!! If you want to give a tiny bit of garlic to a dog or cat for parasite elimination, it's maybe a few times a year, not every day. And generally, cats and dogs on Pet Plus every day don't need anything for parasite control. They naturally repel them.
      I'm so happy that Pet Plus is just awaiting shipping to UK. At long last!!!!

  10. Thank you Suzi for all your research and sharing the information here. Looking forward to incorporating "Pet Plus" in the dogs daily food once again. Many thanks love Annie, Princess Ruby, Honey and Mr. Boris x x x x

  11. Thank you enormously for taking the tile to explain the components of the new formula so fully and effectively.
