Bought this vision supplement for my 9+ year old mini-poodle at the recommendation of my vet. Got the box today and realized the "soft chews" are very hard; so hard my dog had difficulty making a dent in the chew. I ended up getting it wet and cutting it into pieces for him to eat. It was then I realized the chew stains everything it touches when it is wet. The floor where he tried to eat it was stained, but the stain came out with some cleaner and much scrubbing. Will try cutting into small pieces and using peanut butter to get through the remaining 59 "chews."
Got a bottle of these for our 70lb dog after our vet recommended it. At >$1 per chew I was shocked to find the dosage for a dog his size is 4 chews per day! At 4x the ingredient amounts are very similar to some human supplements that are WAY cheaper so we did the math and are going with that instead. Giving Occuvite and B-complex on alternating days. YMMV; talk to your vet.
Very frustrated with Ocu-GLO. These have such good ingredients, but they stink to high heaven. I really don't blame the dogs for not wanting them. I had purchased the small gelcaps years ago, and both dogs refused them because they were still too big to swallow whole. (I have 13 lb and 18 lb Shih Tzus). I thought these chews might work, but both dogs turned away. I cut one chew into SIX pieces and wrapped each section in roast beef. While I managed to get half a treat down, once he smelled the Ocu-GLO, he refused to eat any more. That's pretty bad. How hard is it to just add chicken or beef flavoring to these to make them palatable?!
My dog loves these and will take easier than pills
I bought these as a preventative measure for my 2 year old dog. I opened the bag and they’re a red color, it threw me off since in pictures it looks brown. They were a little hard but I managed to crumble them with my hand into my dogs food. Even if you close the bag, make sure to store it in a ziploc too. They’re getting a little hard each time I open them and give one to my pup.
our 2 pomeranians love these chews. we crumble them and put it in their food. we’ve tried the powder capsules, but they make funny faces and won’t finish the meal when it’s sprinkled on. what i have noticed with my girl (9 years old) is that the clarity of her eyeballs has improved significantly. she had always had a slight blue marble effect which has become more prominent as she matures. her eyes are so dark it’s always been hard to differentiate the iris from the pupil partly because of that marbling effect. but after a month of the chews, we’ve noticed her eyes are clear and we can easily see where her irises and pupils meet (as opposed to a vague darker blob on top of a dark blob). she has never displayed vision problems, but her dog mom went blind and had her eyes removed due to pain and pressure. our girl was diagnosed with severe dry eye so she gets daily gel drops but i’ve been so worried about her sight and am grateful to have this supplement which at least gives me something to fight with and i think it is a powerful weapon.
My German Shepard Dog has diabetes. Eighty percent (80%) of dogs with diabetes go blind within six months of diagnosis. This product came highly recommended to help slow the progression of going blind. I am half way through the bottle and can see no difference. My dog does love the taste of them and she is a picky eater. I am not sure if I will purchase Occu Glo again. They are expensive and I am not sure that they are doing anything.
Eye Dr prescribed these but you were the only ones that carried them - all others were capsules which our 12 1/2 yr old dog won't eat.
I have a senior diabetic dog with poor teeth and a picky palate. He will not chew these 'as is' because he can't and because they don't appeal to him. He also went on a food protest for about a month so I didn't push him with the soft chew. When we went to his next appointment, the ophthalmologist said his cataract increased. Was there a correlation? I don't want to test the theory! So I compromise by sneaking it into his favorite treat. But it's too hard for his teeth so I wrap it in a paper towel, microwave it for 15 seconds to get it pliable, flatten it, and cut it into small pieces that are swallow-able without chewing. One might say that is a lot of work but I tried the small dog version of the Angels' Eyes Ocu-Glo soft gels because they are the less expensive version of the Ocu-Glo soft gel pills for small dogs, but I am switching back to the soft chews because these contain 5 more vitamins than the soft gel pills.
The product was recommended by my Vet who specializes in ocular issues.
