We were happy to find this available on Chewy after our vet stopped offering it. The replacement from our vet was making our dog sick so we went back to the old option, Denamarin. My only complaint is the blue coating which comes off on everything. It takes a few times to get my dog to swallow her pill and in that time her white fur, my hands, and the pill shooter all become covered in bright blue residue. We didn't have this problem when we were able to get it directly from the vet so I'm not sure what the change has been.
I was giving this my cat for a few days, as the vet recommended a liver supplement for him. He kept throwing up everyday. I discontinued and he has not thrown up at all. Something in this pill makes him very ill. Contacted Chewy and they refunded my money. Great customer service.
The boxes seem overly large for the contents. Since freight isn't charged, it's not an expense to me, but it is a wsste of boxes. perishable liquids are in boxes not labeled "perishable, do not freeze".
My vet recommend Denamarin. My cat kept throwing up multiple times a day after giving this. I discontinued and there have been no more issues.
Always buy the chewables, which my small dog loves. These have to be shoved down your small pet's throat. No use trying to wrap in a piece of food, as it will be spit out. The chewables for all dogs hasn't been available for MONTHS. No excuse, no reason. Going to find something else other than Denamarin.
I'm pleased that I've gotten my cat to swallow these pills with the help of a chicken-flavored pill pocket in with his wet cat food. If he misses it the first time, the bright blue color of the pill makes it easy to spot to do a second attempt.
So I have had a funny coincidence that I was dog-sitting a tiny dog that took this exact pill. It was really difficult to get him to take it (basically force it down the mouth), and my cat was on SAMelQ and although she wasn’t 100% excited it wasn’t such a battle for her. Fast forward a week and the dog goes home, and my vet switched us to this same pill we were giving the dog. I assumed he was being difficult but then my cat behaved the same way: revolted. Long story short, I never ate them myself but it’s an obvious difference watching multiple animals try it. Something about this design tastes terrible. Going back to SAMelQ.
My cat's ALT levels came back really high and this supplement came highly recommended. After two days of supplementation my cat vomited up each pill from day one and two. Both pills had just sat in his digestive tract undissolved. Upon Googling the pill, I read that the pills can cause digestive upset and vomiting. I am concerned that they just sat in his system for two days aggravating his digestive system.
My cat had elevated liver enzymes, so her vet recommended this. She has been on this for almost 3 weeks and at her last visit, her enzymes had stabilized. Will continue to purchase and thank you for providing this at an affordable price.
These tablets are so much easier to give than the chewable. They aren't bitter and work just as well.
