The vet recommended this for my Norwegian Forest Cat when he had dry skin; he eats only dried food by choice and is on a light diet to try and manage his weight; on the low fat diet his skin became dry and flaky and his coat felt dry and dull. After using Viacutan for a few weeks his coat was beautiful, when we stopped the product his skin and coat deteriorated again and now I am using it on his food every day (one pump on his biscuits, he leaves these biscuits till last). I am now going to start using on my Finnish Lapphund to keep his coat glossy. The product is pricey, but much less pricey from Vet UK!
My 3 year old Golden retriever has Ichthyosis, a rare gentic skin condition causing flaky dry skin. She has been on Viacutan since she was a puppy and it really helps keep her skin and coat from being too dry. She also has a dermocanis shampoo bath every week and her skin and coat are almost flake free and comfortable!
My 3 year old Goldie has dry flakey skin which falls like dandruff when brushed. We have tried a few remedies from the vet and nothing works. So I thought based on the reviews i would try this. After 6 weeks on the max dose there was a slight improvement in his skin but it hasn't completely gone away. It certainly wasn't a miracle cure but I'll keep using it until I find something better.
I tried this on my Bassett hound who has very greasy and itchy skin and it made no difference at all - used the whole bottle and no difference.
I can't say enough about this product. One of our cats was over grooming and his fur was very harsh. My vet recommended Viacutan. Within weeks his coat was soft and silky. I also have Maine Coon cats and I give it to them too, I now have five cats with beautiful soft fur. I find that as our cats eat dry food its easier to apply to my fingertip and rub it around the cats mouths. They then lick it off themselves.
Our Wire Haired Jack Russell has arthritis in his hips and back and isn't yet 2 years old, he has been on this product along with Seraquin for 5 months now and is so much better for it. His coat is beautifully glossy too. I highly recommend this product. It has help our dog no end.
