I'm sure this product works well for others, but I have a picky eater and he wouldn't eat this. I have to add extra stuff to his food along with this to get him to eat. I think if it had a stronger chicken flavor or maybe bacon flavored, it would be better. I bought the gallon because my dog needs 1/2 cup/day according to his weight. Instead of returning, I decided to suffer through it. Looking for something in a pill form next.
I have been buying this brand for years. When I first bought it, the produce was thick and mixed easily.
Approx. two years ago it stopped being this way, and I could not understand why is was always thin and runny and would not mix easily. I had to shake the bottle more than before. It worked regardless of the consistency, so I continued to buy it.
This last batch I rec'd is thicker, mixes well, and better then the last two years of products.
I noticed that they have expiration dates on the bottles. I wonder if I was getting expired stuff in the past.
Also, you cannot store this stuff in a heated warehouse.
This stuff helps with shedding, it is not the cure all but if you stop using it, the dogs shed quite a bit more than before.
It is expensive, so I buy two gallon bottles at once to receive free shipping, and Entirely Pets usually has some kind of coupon that decrease the price.
Both my golden retriever and cavilier king charles dogs have been using this product since they were puppies and not only do they shed very little, but their coats are full. When I ran out the little dog had problems with his coat which were significantly helped when he went back on the shed solution. Good product.

I started using this over a year ago and I was sold on this product soon after using it on my dog, Rascal. I used to comb out handfuls of hair, but once I added Shed Stop to his food, he now sheds just a light amount of hair. Wow, what a difference. I just purchased my 3rd gallon because it really works. If your dog sheds all year long, this product is for you. You won't be disappointed. It's so easy to use, just add one pump to their food once a day.
I'm in Search & Rescue and I have a beautiful German Shepherd that sheds like mad year around. A groomer a while back told me about this product and now she suggest it to all her clients. What she told me is that you have to put the correct amount in the dogs/cat food every day. If you miss a day your pretty much have to almost start over, because they need to build up to in their system. That is not really true but its a good rule to go by. It takes 30 days to start seeing results that are incredible. But pretty much you'll see some results in a couple of weeks. The coat is a amazing now, very smooth, healthy thick and soft to the touch. Normally his hair is like petting a shark. <grin> I did some research and found the original name was Shed Stop. I contacted the people that actually make the product. Turns out dogs and cats are living longer lives due to this product, it actually provides an amazing amount of oil and water to all the organs... This gallon size also comes with a squirter... I add a little bit of water to his dry food and give him 2 squirts (even though he should get about 1.5 squirts) he loves it and eats all his food in one setting... For dog food I used Kirklands Chicken and Vegetable from Costco/Sams, cheap and its awesome. If you check the ingredients its one of the only big dog bags anymore that are good for Shepherds to eat. But my dog is very healthy, he's more alert and happy and I'm really serious... This product should be mandatory for all cats and dogs. BTW, the manufacture told me you could get the dog formula for cats, there is very little difference between the two.
This stuff is wonderful. I have a large dog who shed virtually all year round. I would just rub my hand down his back and come up with a handful of hair. I have used this product for about a week, and now I can run my hand down his back and pick up no hair. It's amazing. Also I like this product because it's available in the 1-gallon size. At three tablespoons a day the smaller sizes of similar products would not be cost-effective if you own a larger dog.
I am a widow with to dogs who shed and years ago when my husband was a live we used Mrs Allen's stop shed and were very impressed with it. But I can not afford it at this time so I will have to buy the cheap stuff at wal-mart & hope it works.
