    I bought this for my GSD to try to help him with muscle loss due to an injury & degenerative health problem. I'm not sure if it's helping him like I hoped it would but I think it might be helping slow down his inevitable muscle loss. I just ordered a third bag of this but even after the first bag, he I bought this for my GSD to try to help him with muscle loss due to an injury & degenerative health problem.

    Not worth the money

    By SuperSenior on Dec 14, 2021

    No difference seen. However I have an n= 1 and no controls such as him not on Myos. He is a very active now 15 year old Aussie that has been on it for 6 months. Yes he is 15, he had a stroke at the beginning of using it, he plays fetch regularly, and goes to physical therapy weekly. Physical therapy No difference seen.

Yes he is 15, he had a stroke at the beginning of using it, he plays fetch regularly, and goes to physical therapy weekly. Physical therapy took 6-8 months to show a true difference and I agree with his neurological deficits from his stroke it is hard to assess if Myos could or is helping. Now as a cell & molecular scientist, don't waste your money. Only a study with TPLOs and not super seniors. This is a simple protein it is not a cure all some reviews claim. Protein stability is notoriously difficult albeit somewhat worked out in lots of applications, but a canine supplement that is room temperature stable? Then your going to drop this protein in a vat of acid (stomach) and still get it functionally delivered to the tissues and cells of choice? As a cell and gene therapist we are still working that out and it costs a whole lot more! Do I still continue to buy it because I will do literally anything for him, yes. But it's for some silly emotional reason not logical that it is working or worth the money just in case it maybe helps a smidge. … more

    Excellent product!

    By on

    I have been using Myos on my 14yr Lab. She is weak in her hind end and decided to give this product a try to help her build muscle. I have been using it in her food for about a year, and yes it does help. My Vet has seen an amazing change in her strength. In addition she likes the flavor. It’s a little on the pricey side, but if it helps my girl, I’m all in!

    Vet recommended

    By on

    Our Shepard/Husky mix is over 14 yrs old, has arthritis and seemed to be losing some muscle mass. Vet recommended this and she chows her food with this sprinkled in. She seems to be more active and moving around better. So far it's only been a week so it's hard to say if there has been muscle gain but definite improvement in her general activity.

    I was told great things about it, but in practice I didn't find it very useful

    By on

    We train agility and I have had issues with maintaining muscle mass on my border collie. I have experimented with tweaking food amounts and have decided that he needs more protein but not more calories so I tried this. There was no discernible difference in his muscle mass between the start and end of the package. I have since decided not to reorder and to instead focus on switching him to a lower carb, higher protein diet as I experimented with that and found it to work almost immediately.

    Really need to upgrade the packaging

    By on

    Just received the product and have yet to try it but as several reviewers have stated the packaging needs attention by someone in the company that cares. The ziplock fails after the first opening due to the particulates of the product inside. Be prepared to transfer it to a different air tight container upon receipt. For the price it would seem they could put it in a screw top container and save favor with it’s customers. I purchase several supplements for my dogs. Not one comes in a ziplock bag.

    Too early to tell

    By on

    This product was recommended by my veterinarian for my 14.5 year old Samoyed. He has progressive weakness in the rear, and she thought it might help him, as other clients have tried it with some good results. He has been on it for a couple of weeks - no big changes yet. The manufacturer says that it can take 6-8 weeks to see results, so I am still hopeful. On the plus side, he doesn't mind it in his food, and there have been zero GI impact. (a good thing with a heavy coat dog!)

    Cheap Packaging a Problem

    By on

    I bought this on the recommendation of my dog's physical therapist. Frankly, I can't tell if it's benefitting her at all. She is deteriorating but perhaps this product is slowing that down. No way to tell. HOWEVER, I am extremely disappointed with the lousy packaging. As another rater mentioned it has a seal like a Ziploc bag. But the seal comes off the bag quickly. My most recent experience was that it failed in less than a week. So I have to transfer the powder to another air-tight container. Given the price of this product it seems to me they should definitely provide high quality packaging. To sell what they tout as a high quality product in such cheap, low-quality packaging makes no sense I bought this on the recommendation of my dog's physical therapist.
