We Are

100% Natural with no added GMO's

Most probiotics currently used in pet food manufacturing are of human origin. As probiotic bacteria can evolve host-specific traits, we believe that a species-specific probiotic is a biologically relevant approach for probiotic selection.


At CanBiocin, we offer the ability for you to create your own unique product. We can combine both probiotics and prebiotic mixtures along with bacteriocins. 

Prebiotics are preferred foods that provide nutrition for probiotic bacteria and help keep pets active.*

*To optimize pet’s overall health, we recommend feeding a prebiotic and probiotic mix daily.
