Rated 5 out of 5 by tinab158 Perfect Form works better than description claims!
My 3 1/2 year old Lab, Major, has suffered from bloat and intestinal issues since he was 6 months old. At 6 months he needed emergency GDV surgery to save his life, since then he has suffered continued bloating, gas, intestinal discomfort, diarrhea, 2 bouts of life threatening HGE...you name it. All testing comes back that he is healthy...no SIBO, no EPI, no infections or parasites/worms...but yet he continued with symptoms of bloat and IBS/IBD. He's had several trips to the emergency vet (Big $$), and sees both traditional and homeopathic vets.
Premium food helped, but it was a daily, "What's going to happen today?"
About 6 months ago, I tried a grain-free food (Nature's Variety Instinct)...Major improved a good deal, but not good enough. I added an OTC probiotic (Culturelle) 3 months ago...more improvement, but not good enough. Major still had diarrhea (sometimes pure watery-stools) at least once a day and intestinal turmoil. I decided to add Perfect Form to Major's diet...1 1/4 tsp 2 x daily. I mix it per the package directions and hide it under a spoonful of pumpkin on top of his meal. HOLY COW! Within 48 hours, all diarrhea stopped!
I'm still shocked at how quickly Major improved. I cannot express how happy I am that Major's tummy troubles have all but ceased to exist. His intestinal rumblings/noises have almost stopped, too.
If you've been to the vet and run out of options for your pup who suffers symptoms of IBS/IBD and/or bloat...do yourself and your pup a favor and give this product a try. The price is amazing and I can almost guarantee it's less expensive than anything your traditional or homeopathic vet will prescribe.
If I could rate this product 100 stars, I would.

We discovered this product in a local store and were delighted with the results. It actually works immediately and our dogs love the taste. The good news about Chewy is that they sell this amazing supplement for $7 less than our local store!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jerryoki Great for Dogs with Stress-Induced Bowel Issues
My dog had a bout of inflammatory bowel issues. He had blood in his stool, and was having accidents in the house. After an antibiotic and prescription food, the blood went away and his stools firmed up.
I tried switching him back to his old kibble, but every time I did, the blood would reappear. All of this irritation to his gut has taken its toll. He is on a new food, but whenever he is stressed and has diarrhea from it, I still find pink areas in his stool.
This supplement has helped a lot with the irritation in his intestines. Slippery elm (an ingredient in this) coats the lining of the intestines to stop irritation (colon produced mucous and blood when irritated).
I give him this supplement before we go on car rides, which make him anxious and inevitably gives him diarrhea once we reach our destination. I haven't seen any blood in his stool since using this for stressful situations.
He doesn't like the taste, but I mix it in with chicken broth and then he eats it just fine. Absolutely worth it for my dog's comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MzBlew If you have a pet with stomach problems, this is your cure!
One of our cats has had stomach problems and diarrhea since he was a kitten. We have taken him to numerous vets and specialists and none of them found anything wrong. The only thing they recommended was to change to all natural, grain-free food. After trying numerous brands that neither of our cats would touch, we started using Wellness canned food, which they both love. Unfortunately, the diarrhea continued to the point where we would have to clean off his behind every time he used the litter box and he would have accidents on the floor several times a week.
After searching online, I decided to give Perfect Form a shot. The first time we used it, I followed the dosing instructions on the container and my cat would not go near it. For our second try, I decided to add just a small amount to his wet food (literally the tip of a toothpick full) and mixed it in really well. He couldn't even tell it was in there and ate the whole dish of food. After just 2 days, we started seeing a difference in the litter box. Now, for the first time in his life, our kitty has solid stool every time and he seems so much happier. We've been using it for about 3 months now and haven't had any accidents or had to clean his behind at all. This product has truly been a life-saver for us and has made our cats life so much better! We would highly recommend it for anyone going through a similar situation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by meddy Seems good
I had to mix it differently for my cat with IBD. Instead of making it into a paste I added 1/8th teaspoon to a tiny bit of canned food, mixed that, then added more canned food on top. This masks the strongish fennel smell.
My cat has gone from doing about 8 poops a day to doing two or three and these are smaller and more formed.
Into the second week, the poops are getting more dense and less puffy.

by Silas357 Life saver!
My Bernese Mountain Dog pup had GI issues from the moment we brought him home. We tried limited ingredient diets, allergy testing to no avail. He was on meds from the vet and a prescription diet, but he was losing weight and just not doing well. Someone recommended this and it has worked like a charm! We used it everyday for about a week and just put it on his food with some water. Now he can be on a high quality food and it has firmed his stools right up! We took him off slowly (from every meal, to once a day, to every other day). And now haven't had any problems since! If he gets into something I know might upset his tummy I give him this as a preventative and we have had no GI issues since using this product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by PandaShelby This and salmon oil solved my cat's digestive problems
I'm adding this to my cat and dog's food along with Grizzly salmon oil. My cat had either hard painful stools or runny ones and would come out of litter box wiping her behind on the carpet. This no longer occurs. My dog has not had any problems but is almost 16 and on prednisone and I felt this could not hurt. Neither animal has had any problems with this supplement

Rated 5 out of 5 by Victoria1103 Its a miracle product
Got a new pup who got diarrhea within a week. Got him on antibiotics, improvement but diarrhea came back within 24 hours. Did antibiotics twice, same result. Sample comes back clear, also twice. Changed food to grain free, no big change. Sent for extended testing, awaiting results. By chance I got a sample of this product yesterday and after the first time he tried it, went from runny to solid in 3 hours. I am still on the first day of adding this but can see dramatic improvement. If this works as well as everyone says, I am a happy camper.
