CHOLODIN contains sources of choline and posphatidylcholine, two of the most common phospholipids. When present in sufficient dietary quantities, these components act as neurotransmitter precursors, which are chemicals manufactured and released by nerve cells that initiate the sending of "messages" from those cells.
Occasionally, geriatric dogs and cats display clinical signs unexplainable by a specific pathological diagnosis. Examples include:
Lethargy and reduced awareness of surroundings.
Poor coat; excessive shedding or thin, dry coat.
Chronic constipation or fecal incontinence.
Poor appetite; animal eats too little to maintain an adequate body weight.
Poor mental acuity.
For animals displaying one or more of these conditions, choline supplementation with CHOLODIN® may be a very effective aid in treatment.
CHOLODIN has four major functions:
1. It is a significant dietary factor in preventing fatty-liver syndrome in diabetic dogs.
2. It can donate methyl groups needed to synthesize other compounds.
3. It is necessary for acetyl-choline formation.
4. It is a component of phospolipid and lecithin, and a constituent of plasmalogens, which are abundant in mitochondria and in sphingomyelin, found particularly in the brain.

My vet recommended this supplement after our Australian shepherd mix had a couple of grand mal seizures. We changed his diet to grain free and rosemary free (something I had read online that can cause issues in dogs prone to seizures) and added this supplement on a daily basis and our guy has been seizure free for over a year. He loves to take these like a chewable vitamin and so far so good :)

Cholodin WORKS! by Jon B09/13/2008
This stuff is terrific. My wonderful 11 year-old lab, who never had a behavior problem started pooping in the house. He couldn't control his bowels. It was like he didn't know he had to "go" and would walk around with turds dropping. After three days on Cholodin, the problem was solved...and he seemed to be a little more alert. This stuff is for real.
GREAT PRICE by CHELCE from CO03/05/2013
Since my dogs consume 8 tabs of Cholodin a day, I have to have a good supply on hand. EntirelyPets is the ONLY pet supply outlet where I can purchase Cholodin in the large quantity size at a great price!
Keep up the good work and good service EntirelyPets!!
Great for Neurological Distemper Survivor! by martinzgk from Texas10/31/2012
We have a puppy that survived neurological distemper. She devloped tremors as a result of the disease. Our vet recommended Cholodin to supplement her diet and improve her neurological function. We saw mprovement within the first week. She still has tremors but to a much lesser degree. She is able to walk one and a half miles without problems which was not possible 2 months ago. I just ordered a years supply for her. I am so happy to have found out about this supplement. I would definitey recommend this product.
Cholodin by Caseysmom from Ohio11/15/2012
Maggie had been on Neutrix on the recommendation of my vet, but they charged $55 a bottle (30 days worth). They did seem to work, but along with her Rimadyl, her pills were getting very expensive. After extensive research, I found Cholodin and read the reviews.She has been on it for about 30 days and she is continuing to respond. She is bright, alert and no more "where am I" looks. Great product.
It really works! by Kathy10/24/2012
I'm a dog rescue that works with senior dogs and have found this product to be very helpful. We've had 4 more quality years from our current senior than we ever expected.
Wonderful Product by DogMomInTN from Tennessee11/22/2011
Our 18+ year old mixed breed dog has been using this for over a year now. It has made a huge improvement in his quality of life. He had been having frequent episodes of confussion and fear. The Cholodin seems to calm him and make him more alert. He's much happier now.
Seems to be helping our boy. by 3greytkids from North Bend, WA03/11/2013
We have our two senior greyhounds on Cholodin. for help with a bit of dementia. I believe our older boy is being helped by this supplement because he seems more alert and aware of what is going on around him. We plan to continue give this to both seniors until the end.
