I have tried several time to give this to my cat but she vomits every time I give it to her. She hasn't had an issue with other supplements derived from milk, but this one just isn't going to work for her.
My old gal, Cali, has been taking these supplements one to two times daily, for the last three years. I used to get them directly through my vet office’s online pharmacy but have recently started buying them via Chewy due to the price being a little lower! Very easy to open capsules, and it mixes well in treats and food, I don’t think she even notices they’re in her food. 10/10, great product!
Well I had hi hopes to use this for my elderly cats stomatitis but it made her sick to her stomach and she was licking everything I guess to get the taste out of her mouth and she refused to eat it after the first dose.
No idea if it works or not, because I can't get the cat to consume it. When broken up, the contents of the capsule don't break up but are lumpy and don't dissolve. The cat smells it and walks away. Never mind attempting to put the entire capsule in his mouth and get him to swallow it. Too large for that. Disappointed to have wasted the money on it.
This is good stuff. My picky diabetic boy likes it mixed in his food. Since it's a milk derivative, I give it every couple days so he doesn't get diarrhea. He looks and acts better. He hasn't had any pee accidents since starting this regiment. So I'd say it's a win!
My 18 year old kitty has arthritis, pancreatitis, and IBD. I’ve been trying different supplements for his inflammation and had him on this one along with a joint health supplement. After three months I ran out of this and noticed his loose stool went away. Put him back on it and back to unhealthy poops. He’s already on 1/2 Zykelene a day which is also dairy based so maybe it’s too much for him. But I’m taking him off this supplement. It doesn’t make it bad, just not for him.
this stuff seems to be helping my old cat. Samuel had developed "pillow paw" and he was on the downward slide, every day I hated to look at his bed, totally expecting him to be gone to heaven: NOW! he is a new cat, not completely fixed but so much better. The duralactin seems to be helping a lot and he does not even notice it on his wet food. I will keep him on this stuff and see how we get by, but his paws have went down in size so that is a very good sign.
This is the first time Vivi would eat her food with meds mixed in . Not sure if it works yet, only been giving it to her for a week or so. High hopes!
I never write reviews but I am blown away by the results for my 16 year old kitty who also has CKD. With her kidney issues it was slowing her digestion and causing gut inflammation which was destroying her appetite. Also her arthritis was getting so bad that she could barely limp around. Within one month of being on and Duralactin for inflammation twice a day and Dasuqin once a day (for arthritis) she stopped limping almost completely and her appetite started coming back! It’s been 2 months with her on it now and she’s eating all her food and has started climbing to the top of the cat tree for the first time in a year! I’m so happy to see how her quality of life has improved!
My vet recommended this. It really does work. My cat is 14 and she was cranky because she had a lot of arthritis pain. This relieved her pain. She isn't nearly as grumpy and actually plays.
