I bought this product as it reads to be an excellent source of multivitamins. However, my dog rejects it. They smell god awful, leave staining yellow color, and must taste terrible. I can't even hide it in my dog's food, dry or wet. I've wasted a lot of money on Zesty Paws products because of what they promised. Sorry to say, it's a flat out lie.
My husky is 12 and has arthritis in her back legs. I’ve been giving her these for the past few years and I ran out at one point and shipping was delayed.. she was SO sore for those days. Once we started again, she was back to normal! She loves the flavor, too. My only problem with them is that they dye my fingers yellow.. turmeric isn’t listed in the ingredients, but I feel like these have it based on the color alone.
After taking half of a dose consistently for a week or two, my 9 years old chihuahua mix stopped wanting to do his favorite daily walks, and he seemed like in pain. I have stopped the vitamins for a week now, and he seems 80% back to his normal state. PLEASE PLEASE DON'T GIVE THESE TO YOUR DOGGO. :(
My picky Boston Terrier has been eating the 8 in 1 bites for Years, but now that he is 13 yrs old, I thought he might benefit from these senior bites. Only thing is - he will NOT eat them! Wont even Try them!! If i put them in his food he wont eat that either! So I guess I wasted this money and will go back to the orange jar. UGH!!!
I physically took this container into my vet to make sure I am giving my dog the proper supplements, and my vet pointed out that this product contains D3, which is a form of vitamin D that is highly toxic to dogs. As well, dogs do not need vitamin D supplements, as they synthesize their own. Just a heads up to owners...the 8-in-1 bites contain D3 as well.
We have been using the Aller-Immune (orange) version for our 14yo dog for over a year but happened to come across this one which has similar benefits but also addresses many of his aging issues as well. He likes these as well as the others and seems more active. We will be ordering them again.
Every one of these I've ordered has had a different look and different consistency. The first package I got was very wet and very dark brown. The next was dry and crumbly and more the color of sand. The ones I just got today are absolutely coated in the yellow dusting that has been lightly sprinkled on the other two containers I'd received, but hold together better than the last ones I bought. I brought the last package to my vet to ask her opinion on these, and she said there's even less regulation for animal supplements than there is for human supplements (so I take this to mean no one cares what's in it and things are just kinda produced and sent out), so there's no way to tell if they're decent unless you do an analysis on your own. I certainly hope, for what they cost, that they're doing something for my old scrungly dog. But based on how vastly different each bottle of these vitamins has looked thus far, I'm hesitant to think they do much of anything besides provide a chicken flavored treat for my doggo.
This little 13 year old senior girl had never seen a vet before I got her last year. She had to have half of her teeth taken out and found out she has congestive heart failure, arthritis and bad knees. I could also tell her vision wasn't great. I wanted a multivitamin that would address her various needs. I found Zesty Paws and she's been on them for over a year now. She's a picky eater, but we were able to get her to gain some weight and she looks so much better than the affection starved little girl she was. Despite her health, she wants to walk around and explore when we go places. She will now demand her snuggle times! I think this senior 11-in-1 keeps her going!
We have English bulldogs. 1 is 11, 1 is 3, and 1 is 3 months. I give our 11 year old the senior blend, and I can't believe the difference I see in her. She is like a pup again. I give the other 2 the 8 in one's and every trip to the vet comes back positive. I think these are great.
I have six senior poodles, ranging from 11 to 15, and they all LOVE these. I expected at least one of them to hold out, but every dog accepted it just like it was a tasty treat. Even the ones who no longer have many teeth were able to eat them with no problem, as they crumble easily with a little pressure (something I discovered when testing one between my thumb and index finger ... oops). I will report back once they've been going long enough for me to see a difference. :)
