I am in love with these products, especially the probiotics. I started out with them a few months ago, after spending years switching between various other brands that were on sale, with Proviable on hand for bad stomach days.
I gave my last Proviable to my mom two months ago, and have yet to refill my stock. There’s no need to now that I use the Pebble probiotics. I even bought my mom some for her dog, who has an incredibly sensitive stomach. My dogs get them prophylactically, but her dog needs them to function, and along with a food change, they’ve worked darn near miracles for her. My own boys have decently strong stomachs, but my bully mix puppy sometimes gets some minor GI problems, which these fix within a day or so.
I started my two boys and my roommates’ ten year old Pom on the Frolic and Shine pills, in addition to the probiotics, about a month or so ago, switching from Cosequin and Welactin. There hasn’t been a massive improvement in my boys, which is expected, as their coats and joints are already in good shape, but they also haven’t lost anything either, which means that these supplements are on the same level of quality and effectiveness as the very expensive leading brands that I used to use.
There has, however, been a significant difference in Zaphira, the Pom. She very much thinks that she’s a young, giant breed, and while she definitely still has fantastic joints and mobility, it’s clear that she’s started slowing down. Rather, she *had* started slowing down. A month on these, and she feels frisky enough to try to zoomie and play with my 60lb boys while they’re tackling each other at full speed. It’s a distressing development, but I can’t deny that she is very clearly regaining the speed and mobility that she had started to lose due to age.
I am so grateful to have discovered these supplements. My bank account is significantly heavier than it used to be, especially where the Welactin is concerned. I have to give each of my boys three pills a day, and it costs much more to buy the same amount of pills, with the exact same quality of Shine, which only gives each dog one pill per day.
If nothing else, I know that the Flora works well, because my 4yo dog decided to steal the Flora and Frolic, unscrew the lids, and eat roughly one hundred capsules of each. He had only mild diarrhea afterward, which I suspect is due to the Flora. (Yes, I called my vet. Yes, they’re now way out of his reach. I had just had surgery and my mom gave the boys their meals and supplements while I was recovering, and didn’t realize they had to be left up high.)
I can’t even imagine having to go back to the more expensive supplements for them. As long as they’re around and are maintaining this exceptional quality and customer service, I will continue feeding these to my dogs, including my service dog.
As you can see, he doesn’t regret a single moment of his crime.
