I am extremely disappointed in this product. I purchased 14 packets and have used 7 per recommended dosage and have not seen any change at all. My Boston Terrier still gives me a battle each time I walk her. Very unhappy.
I foster former racing greyhounds so they can learn about the world outside of racetracks and get ready for their "forever" home. A huge percentage of them eat their waste - a habit picked up at the tracks. I've found using this for a week (don't forget to treat ALL dogs who are living together at the same time) usually breaks this nasty habit.
"I recommend this product"
Worked really well with my pup when he started, but when the treatment stopped 3 days later he started eating again but we solved it with behavioral training. The key to this product is to make sure the issue is not caused by lack of proper nutrition through a poor diet. If your food is good and has no fillers/by-products.
Gave the recommend dosage for my dogs for the proper number of days and it didn't change a thing. So, now I'm gonna try STOP, hope that works.
