    life saver

    By Koda on Mar 20, 2021

    My Great Dane has a reoccurring skin condition that has only been helped by this. There was a significant difference within 48hrs . Less heat at sights, less itching, less reddening. Would recommend without hesitation

    Capsule versus Tablets

    By Edward on Oct 30, 2019

    It would be nice if they came in tablets so you could cut them in half. These are very expensive for a daily dose. 300mg is half the price as 150mg. I am not sure why they would be half the price for twice the dosage.
