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.
Formulated with a flavor base (Pork Liver Meal).
Dosage and Administration: Usual Daily Dose: Cats and Small Dogs ½-1 tablet ¼-½ teaspoonful Large Dogs 1-2 tablets ½-1 teaspoonful The tablets may be fed by hand or crumbled and mixed with food.
Not good for Chihuahua's by hlock99 from Bucks County, PA11/17/2011
I bought this product for my 11 yr old mini Dachshund and gave 1/4 tablet to my 8 yr old Chihuahua and within les than 24 hrs we were running her to the emergency vet. She had Pancreatitis. We almost lost her. My Dachshund is fine but I would never recommend this product or use it again. BE CAREFUL!

My dog was on Phenobarbital for seizures and then developed urinary incontinence, I read about Cholodin and started supplementing him with that, and weaning him off the phenobarbital. He has not had a seizure since he has been off the pheno. That has been about 2 months, and he no longer has the urinary incontinence.

My female husky has had diabetes for several years. We've battled several complications with her eyes, starting with cataracts and, long after cataract removal and myriad other issues and treatments, culminating with complete blindness. We test her blood sugar and give insulin twice daily. Through it all, she's been absolutely amazing, accepting each treatment with ease, and maintaining a terrific attitude toward things. People comment how easily she gets around, how amazingly she deals with challenges, and how happy she seems.

An outstanding product with top notch customer service. I spoke with a rep. from MVP, the company that makes Cholodin, prior to ordering these tablets. A two week sample was shipped from her office to my home Priority Mail as well as a hyaluronic acid gel supplement for joint issues.

So far, so good.... by Lady Bee from San Diego CA01/16/2012
My previous Welsh Terrier suffered with canine Alzheimer's so badly, we had to put him to sleep. I adopted a 6 year old Welshie a year ago and started him on Cholodin Canine right away, as a holistic vet recommended they be started at age 5 for dogs and cats. Obviously, I don't know how they will affect my pets later in their lives, but I will say that my new Welshie, now age 7, has the drive and spirit of a puppy, races his 2-year old doggie friends and wins, and he's a sharp one. He also thinks his Cholodin tablet is a treat!

Can't really rate the effectiveness as the odor turns my dog off- even when crushed and mixed with his food. I had great hopes as it came highly rec. I have occassionally gotten part of a tablet- I break into 1/4s -down when burried in meat-but still is able to spit it out. Any ideas?
Cholodin - Super Geritol for Pets by Dee from Louisiana11/21/2011
This supplement helped give my elderly pit-mix a much better quality of life as he aged - almost 16 when he died. Now it is giving my retriever mix an excellent quality of life - she'll be 17 in December. It helps with cognition, mobility, seems to benefit the liver, and just over all improves the ability to enjoy their elder days. The cat version is great for the elder felines in your world as well. I'll keep on using it when my other dog, a corgie mix, starts pushing his "oldie-goldie" days.

My 12 year old vizsla has difficulty sleeping at night. He'd be awake, and he wouldn't remember how to go out the dog door, or how to get back in, and he'd need to go out several times a night. Sometimes he'd stand on the floor, stare at the bed and bark, but he didn't really know what he wanted. I wasn't getting any sleep due to his nocturnal restlessness.
