Created by Science.
Formulated with Love.
TEEF for Life's Protektin™ powder water additives are designed for easy, at-home daily dental hygiene. This formulation does not contain sodium bicarbonate, so it is easy on all pets, including extra sensitive ones with tummy and kidney issues. TEEF's vegan, prebiotic technology leverages the fundamentals of microbiology and molecular nutrition to promote dental health and fresh breath in a safe, revolutionary way. Just one scoop per day in drinking water works to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria while growing beneficial bacteria essential for optimal dental health.
Every drink works to bathe oral bacteria in our patented formula, which works like a molecular meal plan that puts microbes on a Keto diet. Steering bacteria away from carbohydrates and sugars and towards proteins and amino acids results in healthier and less stinky by-products that cause dental disease. TEEF doesn't kill bacteria, it simply enhances the good bacteria to out-compete the bad for optimal dental health.

The SMMRT® Approach
To beat the carbohydrate-driven, microbial-dependent disease processes that drive tissue inflammation and destruction, TEEF's Protektin™ formulations are powered by a first-of-its-kind prebiotic technology called Selective Microbial Metabolism Regulation Technology (SMMRT)®. Developed in 2008, this patented approach uses natural, consumable nutrients to stop the growth of destructive microbes while growing beneficial ones necessary for optimal dental health.
3D Imaging - Dental Plaque Figure
A) Plaque swab readout from a canine after consuming a commercial dental chew.
B) Plaque swab readout from a canine exposed to Protektin42™ after 24 hours of use. Visible height difference and consistency can be observed in plaque structure (51.98mm vs. 20.13mm).
Protektin™ formulations create a smooth and healthy biofilm (plaque), which promotes healthy gums, whiter teeth, and fresh breath.
Microbiome Improvement Study with DoggieBiome™
During National Pet Dental Health Month (February), we conduct a 30 day challenge in partnership with DoggieBiome™. The goal is to observe the changes to the oral microbiome after administering TEEF’s Protektin42™ in drinking water for 30 days. An exemplary result is presented below:
Dean, a 10 year old Greyhound, showed a significant decrease in the amount of Porphyromonas gingivalis bacteria (second microbe listed - burden dropped from 22.4 to 4.1 in 30 days). P. gingivalis is a key contributor to dental disease and other systemic issues. Also, his oral microbiome was rehabilitiated to balanced by the conclusion of the study.

Bottom image shows a significant reduction in calculus (tartar) and a noticeable gain of tissue vascularization. Also observed was a significant reduction in halitosis after 30 days of administration of Protektin42™.
- Significant gum health improvement (red to pink)
- Significant breath improvement
- Noticeable plaque and tartar reduction
