Animal Biome (Animalbiome) Fecal Microbiota Transplant Making Waves!
Something else (something better) to consider in chronic / severe / ulcerative gastrointestinal disease:
It’s like, $250 – $300 TOTAL – I won’t & don’t collect any fee. Sometimes they have a ‘sale’ and it’s worth signing up for their newsletter.
“Day four of the poo/fecal probiotic pills and we have solid poop, Houston!”
- Animalbiome sends you / me a sample kit.
- You / we send a sample of the dog’s poop.
- They test it for germs and make sure your dog has Beneficial Germ* #1 through #100
- They measure Bad Germs #1 through #100
- (There’s always too few of one, too many of another).
- They make dietary recommendations to foster the success of the good germs and screw up the lives of the bad germs.
- Then they send you little capsules of Good Germs from healthy young donors.
*This is the most ridiculous oversimplification EVER ha ha ha ha
But…. I bet if someone asked you now; you could explain this adequately to someone else!
In that case, Luna’s health problems stemmed from the fact that the dog was eating a carbohydrate rich diet WITHOUT the germs needed to use that.
But, since it had not been getting much protein, it ALSO did not have the germs for effectively using protein.
It was an excellent candidate for germ replacement.
how they’re supposed to feed Luna. (Because of the germ population)
“Oliver had worsening diarrhea and vomiting, over a five-year period. Now his poop has shape to it and he isn’t straining to go; he is eating regularly and maintaining weight. I am forever grateful to AnimalBiome.”

This Filter is Good For BIG Dirty Tanks
I've been wrestling with water quality with the turtles. The sponges work GREAT, but in THOSE turtle systems where they eat MICE the poops are bulky. This filter can handle it. In "Tortu's" tank, it's got an 800 gph pump and it rocks.
PraziPro for Flukes
They nailed it. Figured out the solubility and worked out the dosing. It works.
Buy Some Good Koi?
No, this isn't really for the 'high end' collector y'all. But for someone who isn't near a decent garden center, here are "good-to-quite-good" Koi you will like at a very good price. I know these guys personally.
Best Food, Ever
It's made for (and I discovered it for) my Blood Parrots but the small size, intense color enhancers and excellent formulation make it superb young-Koi food. Oh, and it's AMAZING on color-cichlids like Flowerhorn and Blood Parrots.
Pro Air 60 Aerator is a VERY high output air pump pushing my whole fish room (17+ drops), and I have one at home driving everything there, and I have one as a back up.
Formalin Malachite (Not dilute)
There are formalin malachite preparations at 10%, 22% and 37%. There's economy in the concentrates. Hard to get Prime shipping because air transport is curtailed. This is a good value on 32 ounces.
Topical For Koi and Pond Fish Ulcers
I like 7% tincture of iodine because it stains but it's hard to hurt anything with it. Used with a WOVEN gauze, this works well to clean and disinfect a wound. Only use ONCE. Do not 'repeatedly' scrub wounds.
Koi Health & Disease
Hopefully this link takes you to the newest edition by PRIME to get it to your house the fastest.
I have over ten of these Titanium Heaters in my fish room and at home. They're a paradigm shift in aquarium heating. They're titanium and 400W for under $30! Whaaaaaaaaat?
CyroPro by Hikari is safe and easy for Anchor Worms and Fish Lice.
Whatever heaters you use, back yourself up with a temperature controller, it'll turn on, and off your heaters. If your heater seizes "on" at least the thermostat will stop a tragedy.
LifeGuard by Tetra is a tablet version of a tame 'chloramine-t' or 'halamid' compound that's easy to get and good on bacterial infections, in baths.
If you're making medicated feed for a larger group of fish, this will come in handy. Dosing is available in the site.
For me, filtration-of-choice
For aquariums, even small Koi holding facilities or small ponds. These sponge filters are cheap, easy to clean, and they clear hazes very well when used with some Accuclear or similar.
Rubber sided, round, nettable tanks
Make great hospital or quarantine facilities. They SHOULD cost about $200-300 depending on size, but this, lower quality unit (while panned in some reviews) may be good. Don't overfill and make sure it's propped up.
1200 Watt heater, on a thermostat held securely above the waterline, works GREAT as a large tank heater. That's all I'll say because there's risk of electrocution and all that. But then, even in a bucket you could get killed. Sound like fun?
I have several of these ALLIED PRECISION stainless ones that are a couple years old. Working still.
500 grams could be a lifetime supply but it's 50% more than the 100g cost wise, for 500% more amount. Dosing is in the site and the book.
What Does Ajax Eat?
I looked for something well formulated, with meat as the first ingredient. Something UNDER $2/lb and something they could deliver for free. And this was it. He looks and feels great on it.
