A special combination of herbs demonstrated to enhance immunity via their known antibiotic and antioxidant activities. An all natural herbal dietary supplement.
Vibactra Plus is an herbal solution for bacterial, viral and parasitical infections. Its many anecdotally-observed clinical successes include clearance of refractory pneumonia, fight intestinal illness (as an adjunct to Amber Technology’s Parvaid and Kitty Distempaid), and in the setting of cold and flu symptoms. It also plays a role in prophylaxis against airborne infection.
Amber Technology’s Life Cell Support is also beneficial in conjunction with the Vibactra Plus if building the immune system. The immune builders in Vibactra Plus are advantageous for pets that suffer from parasites such as Coccidia and mites. These parasites will attack the body when the immune system has been compromised. The Vibactra Plus can help build the immune system (which in itself may stop the parasites) and has an anti-parasitic to help rid the parasites from the body.
Vibactra Plus™ is classified more generally as being microcidal, having the ability to kill a variety of organism types. The clinically-significant microcidal activity of Vibactra Plus is ubiquitous throughout the canine’s body. In its microcidal activity (coccidia, giardia, etc), Vibactra Plus plays a key role in attenuating a variety of canine infections. As always, consult with your veterinarian health care provider. Some infections require immediate attention and treatment should NOT be postponed.
Free radicals result from normal body function, to include clearance of infections by the immune system. These free radicals have been clearly linked to cancer and degenerative disease. In the normal course of clearing an infection, the body produces more free radicals than normal, and in a compromised state of illness, those free radicals are more difficult to clear. Vibactra Plus supports the body in this critical function of clearing free radicals to help prevent these more serious sequels to infection.
Vibactra Plus is designed to:
Quell Post-infectious inflammation
Reduce free radicals
The clinical rationale for using this product in Parvo cases is to drastically increase the survival rate of the Parvovirus-infected pup and to accelerate that pup’s rate of clinical improvement. Naturally, its microcidal effects will have a positive impact on the many constitutional and organ-specific problems that accompany Parvovirus infection, while working to augment the gastrointestinal and constitutional effects of Parvaid, which is used in tandem with Vibactra Plus for optimal treatment of Parvovirus.
Because of its inherent strength, the recommended per dose amount of Vibactra Plus must not be exceeded. As well, Vibactra Plus is strictly dosed, not to exceed administration more frequently than every six hours.
Note: For any infection of concern, one must seek immediate medical assessment.
When to use Vibactra Plus:
- During Parvo outbreaks
- During Feline Distemper outbreaks
- To assist with Coccidia, Giardia and other microscopic parasites
- Help build the immune system
- As a preventative against Parvo and Feline Distemper
- Help with Kennel Cough or Canine Flu
- When an open wound is present (to help keep infection from arising)
- Help reduce many types of infections
- Vibactra Plus may be beneficial for use before surgery to enhance immunity and eliminate the possibility of a coccidia outbreak
- Can be used in conjunction with Amber Technology’s Otalgia Drops, Life Cell Support, Parvaid, Kitty Distempaid, Pet’s Cough & Cold, Tummy Trouble
Taking a look at the immune system
The immune system is a very complex assortment of various cells and molecules all joined and maintained. Each organ, cell and tissue play a very important role in the immune response efforts. The liver and kidneys are responsible for ridding the body of toxins and waste in the blood. The cells in the skin are the defense against exterior threats. Working beneath or within these and other structures is the immune system – a fine tuned army consisting of millions of cells, organs, microbes and chemicals. Each structure has its special function. Some serve as detectives with a sole purpose of seeking out waste products. While other structures serve as responding attackers (to kill and remove).
The immune system must be quick and powerful to be effective. The blood and lymphatic system serves as the transport and invasion structure, carrying antibodies (which are proteins that report any foreign presence to the immune system).
The purpose of the immune system is to keep infectious microorganisms, such as certain bacteria, viruses, and fungi, out of the body, and to destroy any infectious microorganisms that do invade the body. The immune system is made up of a complex and vital network of cells and organs that protect the body from infection.
- Natural immunity is created by the body's natural barriers, such as the skin, and protective substances in the mouth, the urinary tract, and on the eye surface. Another type of natural immunity is in the form of antibodies passed on from mother to infant.
- Acquired immunity develops through exposure to specific foreign microorganisms, toxins, and/or foreign tissues), which are "remembered" by the body's immune system. When that antigen enters the body again, the immune system "remembers" exactly how to respond to it, such as with Parvo or Feline Distemper. Once a pet is exposed to Parvo or Feline distemper (or the vaccine), the immune system will produce specific antibodies against disease. When that same pet is exposed to the disease again, the immune system will trigger the release of the particular Parvo or Feline Distemper antibodies to fight the disease.
Disorders of the immune system
When the immune system does not function properly, it leaves the body susceptible to an array of diseases. Allergies and hypersensitivity to certain substances are considered immune system disorders. Other examples of immune disorders include:
- cancer of the immune system
- rheumatoid arthritis
- viral hepatitis
The causes of an infectious disease
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an infectious disease is caused by one or more of the following:
- parasites or microscopic parasites
Infectious diseases can range from common illnesses, such as a cold, to deadly illnesses. Depending on the specific illness and country, an infectious disease can spread in some or all of the following ways:
- -Airborne transmission - transmission of an infection through inhaling airborne droplets of the disease, which may exist in the air as a result of a cough or sneeze from an infected pet
- -Direct feces or urine contact - transmission of an infection through contact with feces or urine of an infected pet
- -Insect-borne transmission - transmission of an infection through insects, such as mosquitoes, which draw blood from an infected animal and then bite a healthy animal
- -Food-borne transmission - transmission of an infection through consuming contaminated food
- -Water-borne transmission - transmission of an infection through contact with contaminated water
- -Other mechanisms that can transmit a disease
Viruses and Bacteria
Viruses and bacteria cause the majority of infections. Viruses cause most colds, flu, coughs, and viral diseases. Bacteria cause most ear and sinus infections, urinary tract infections and bacterial diseases. Both bacteria and viruses can enter the body in many ways, including through inhalation, food, feces, and urine contact.
Antibiotics do work against infections
Traditional antibiotics can be used to treat bacterial infections. However, Amber Technology’s Vibactra and Vibactra Plus (natural, organic, antibiotic alternatives) are effective in treating virus-related illnesses.
Traditional antibiotics treat specific bacteria and overuse or misuse of antibiotics can lead to drug-resistant bacteria. However, Vibactra and Vibactra Plus will not produce a tolerance which does not lead to drug resistance to viral or bacterial infections. It is important that traditional antibiotics are taken properly and for the duration of the prescription. Vibactra and Vibactra Plus can be taken for long periods of time to build immunity in the body. If traditional antibiotics are stopped early, the bacteria may develop a resistance and or cause the infection to mutate.
If an animal’s immune system is deficient or depleted by poor nutrition, immune-supportive supplements may not be useful with the exception of Amber Technology’s Vibactra and Vibactra Plus (taken at a low dose over a long period of time). The core job of building natural immunity begins withdiet, exercise, and a clean, happy living environment.
Diet, diet, . . . diet!
For dogs and cats, strong immunity begins with a diet consisting of good quality meat, (vegetables for those who are not administering an all meat diet) and well-balanced mix of vitamins and minerals, as all of these things are needed to build and maintain blood, muscle, and bone structure.
Essential fatty acid supplements are good for the skin and coat. Digestive enzymes and acidophilus will help maintain a healthy digestive tract. Keeping your pet happy, exercised, clean and happy will maintain core strength or the core of the immune system. Amber Technology’s Vibactra or Vibactra Plus can be administered twice daily to help build the immune system, fight off viral, bacterial, fungal, and microscopic parasitical infections.

*For heavier pets, add 5 drops for each 100 lbs increment.
Administer the appropriate dose in number of drops, as determined by the above weight-based nomogram.
The standard dose for Vibactra Plus is administered orally 4 times daily for up to 10 days. A 10 day dosing period is optimum.
Long Term Use:
Co-administration of Vibactra Plus with Parvaid or other Amber Technology products is short term. However, there are clinical settings in which Vibactra Plus is utilized beyond a ten day regimen. Vibactra Plus may be used for many months with clinical drug holidays (break) as directed to build immunity as well as a variety of conditions resulting in viral, bacterial and microscopic parasitical symptoms. For the first six months of long term use, 1-2 times daily administration may continue as needed. If administration of Vibactra Plus beyond six months is mandated, a 5 day holiday from product before re-starting is necessary. Vibactra Plus can be administered via this six month rotation cycle for eighteen months.
Twice a day dosing should approximate administration every 12 hours. Four times a day dosing should approximate administration every six hours.
When treating more than one pet with the same dropper, it is necessary to assure sterile administration without carry over from pet to pet. The best way to assure this is to use the dropper only to transfer product to an individual sterile oral syringe—a different syringe for each pet. Those syringes should be sterilized after each use. Each pet should have its own syringe that is not shared with another pet. If a syringe is not readily available, then until one can be found, one may mix the product with a larger volume of flavored fluid (e.g. tuna or salmon water) that is to be lapped from a bowl. However, the use of a syringe assures a more accurate dose.
Vibactra Plus Protocol:
Shake product well before use. For most illnesses (span style=e.g. Kennel Cough) the product may be administered orally 4 times daily during waking hours. In the case of more significant illness, the product must be administered every 6 hours around the clock, even if the animal must be awakened.
For both dosing scenarios, dosage protocol lasts for up to ten days, depending on the specific infection being treated. As a rule of thumb, treatment should continue through full clinical recovery and then for three more days after that.
In the case of an infected pregnant adult animal, safe and effective administration is suggested to be body weight equivalent dose administered strictly 1/2 dose every 6 hours (whether awake or asleep).
In the case of an infant animal infection (an infected animal age 4 weeks or younger), the best route of administration is via mother’s milk. Therefore, the mother is treated as if she was infected, using her body weight to measure the amount of product used. This has the extra added advantage of treating the rest of a hypothetical litter—whether that be symptomatic treatment of undiagnosed disease or preventive treatment. As well, the mother is clearly receiving preventive treatment. This not only helps the entire litter, but has a preventive effect on the entire local environment. While the amount of nutraceutical and the frequency of feeding are both inexact quantities, as long as the care taker assures that the infant feeds well on a regular basis and does not get nudged out by the others in the litter, then this strategy is considered efficacious.
Suggested Use For Exposed Animals
Administer orally twice per day while awake (approximately every 12 hours)
Suggested Use to Enhance Immunity
Administer orally 1-2 times per day (every 12 hours)
Suggested Use for Coccidia or Giardia:
In most cases it will take a 10-day treatment to rid your pet of Coccidia and Giardia. However, if you have a crowded or dirty property, (i.e. kennel, farm, unclean property etc.) you may have to do a 10 day on and 10 day off cycle program. This program consists of Vibactra Plus and Parvaid (for dogs) or Kitty Distempaid (for cats). Give for 10 days. Go off ten days (be sure to clean the premises well during treatment). Go back on for 10 days then back off another 10 days. You will do this until you have completed 3 ten-day cycles. Adding MSM to their diet may give them a better chance at fighting off the protozoan (some protozoan’s are difficult to treat). If exposed to Coccidia:Administer Vibactra Plus twice a day for 10 days (after weaning if applicable).

Keep Vibactra Plus out of the reach of children under 16 years of age. The dosing guidelines must be followed exactly as written. Overdose of this product can cause serious side effects, to include irritability, change in behavior, reduced consciousness, vomiting and subsequent dehydration, stupor, coma, or death.
It is important to weigh your pet before administration of this product. Continuous use of Vibactra Plus without appropriate scheduled interruption is to be avoided, as it is associated with clinically significant listlessness, diarrhea and vomiting.. As with any nutraceutical or pharmaceutical product, Vibactra Plus may cause an allergic reaction that may manifest as either skin redness, urticaria (hives), peri-orbital edema (swelling around the eyes), or as potentially serious respiratory dysfunction associated with laryngeal edema. Any suggestion of allergic reaction, even the most subtle, should alert the pet owner or veterinary health care provider to cease any further administration of Vibactra Plus and to assess for interventional measures for such a reaction.
One should have all of the appropriate emergency contact information readily available before starting this or any nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, or nutritional supplement. It is recommended that the pet owner, the novice in particular, discuss the use and side effect profile of this and any product with his or her veterinary health care provider.
Co-administration of Vibactra Plus with other agents must be done with caution. In the event of co-administration with other Amber Technology products, one must NOT mix Vibactra Plus with Kennel Koff , Kocci Free, HWF, Urinary Tract Relief or with the original version of Vibactra. Co-administration with pharmaceutical antibiotics is considered safe in most instances, with rare exception.
Two known exception is the co-administration of Vibactra Plus with the antibiotic Baytril and Tamiflu which may have caused an adverse reaction of clinical significance. Therefore, this product should not be given to any animal receiving antibiotics or other Amber Technology products unless otherwise directed.
Overdose of this product in a pregnant dog statistically increases the risk of miscarriage. Evidence of liver disease is a relative contraindication due to the presence of ethyl alcohol in this product (alcohol may be removed by protocol).

- Love these products! Review by swanbackjacks
Excellent products! I love the specific instructions and warnings. Organic is an added bonus! Thank you!
- Infection Review by Sue Lindsay
I have a 7 year old Lab named Thor that developed an infection from a broken toe that would not heal. The Vet tried antibiotics which did not work. The Vet finally amputated the infected toe. Then the next toe began to have the same infection. Again the Vet was not able to heal the toe and wanted to amputate the second toe. At this time, I learned of VIBACTRA Plus, and at that point the prospect of Thor not having his toes was a tough thought so I was willing to try anything. Within a few days of trying VIBACTRA PLUS, Thor was visibly better within a week. He was able to walk on his foot within a month. All evidence of illness, other than the missing toe is gone. He has been healthy, very active and happy since. Thanks so much for saving a wonderful family member.
- Great Product! Review by loveyourdog
I love this product! I used it after my dogs spay to prevent any infection. No infection and she healed up great. I also used it when my Beagle got really sick (we think she was poisoned). Used this and the Tummy Trouble. Took a few days to see improvement and it continued thereafter. She is doing great now. This is a great all around product. Great for various issues.
- rGNFQKSxmI Review by Ellen
I'm not easily impressed. . . but Vibactra Plus is impressing me!
- OUTSTANDING PRODUCT!! Review by RanchDog
I have used Vibactra Plus not only to treat Parvo puppies, but for many, many other things as well. Tooth infections, eye infections, wounds, etc.. I always use it after a spay/neuter to prevent infection. If anything seems "off " in one of our dogs, the first thing I reach for is the Vibactra Plus. Running a rescue can bring all sorts of surprises, and Vibactra Plus allows me to jump right on all kinds of things before they get out of hand. It's practically a cure-all, and I wouldn't be with out it.
- Excellent Product Review by Shih Tzu Puppy Love
- Having been a foster for rescue animals, and a breeder of dogs & cats I have had dealt with many animal illnesses over the past 35 years. Conventional treatments don't always knock the problem out. I began using Amber Tech products in 2006 to treat a Cocciaidia infection in our dogs. They had been treated with conventional medication & were not healing. We began using Parvaid, & later Vibactra Plus. Our dogs showed remarkable improvement with in 24 hours. Within a week we were well on the road to recovery. We have treated feral cats, foster dogs & cats for many ailments with Amber Tech's Parvaid, Kennel Koff, Vibactra, & Vibactra Plus. Amazing results is an understatement. I highly recommend Amber Tech's products.
