Our Sunshine is about 15 years old and has begun to show his age. He has been on thyroid meds for about 2 years and has never grown back all the hair he lost before the start of treatment. Early this year he started treatment for Cushings. He had also started showing signs of cognitive dysfunction. We have always needed to watch him closely in the yard because he was compulsive about eating dirt.
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 is the Bomb!
from Houston, TX06/19/2013
These supplements have truly helped our 'golden retriever' with alertness & agility. She's 12 & was suffering with periodic seizures/anxiety. She was 1st put on Pheno (1/2 tablet) for a few months but since starting on Cholodin - she has been seizure free for months & even brings us her frisbee once in a while! Amazing improvement. She's more alert as well! Recommended! :-)
Awesome purchase, I'll go for the refill...

Wonderful product with a visible impact on my 11years old buddy....
easy for dog to take
my dog likes the taste of the product and takes it willingly. seems to cut down on his seizers
Not good for Chihuahua's
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!
Very Reasonable Cost
from Urbandale, Iowa01/22/2014
I had been purchasing the same quantity from my vet for over $25. What a rip off. The 180 count they charged over $50. I think it is sad that they feel that have to rip off their clients that much. This supplement really has helped my senior dog immensely. He is much more alert and happy!
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.
Works well for our dog and Entirely Pets has a much lower price than other online sites.
Good for older dogs
I've given this to my two older dogs (a 13-year-old golden and a 10-year-old pug) and I believed it has helped both of them. Both seem to be more alert and playful.
These really work.

Our vet. prescribed these and they have made all the difference for our dog. They think she has degenerative myleopathy. Her back legs were buckeling under her and after taking these with other supplements she can now get around alot better.
Cholodin Canine Chewable
from Northern New Jersey04/29/2014
My Libby is an old lady. My black lab is the sweetest thing. She has an issue with incontinence. She is NOT aware that she leaks. I feel that this would mortify her as she aims to please. I actually stumbled upon this site and have to say just how grateful I am. This is my 3rd order of Cholodin Canine Chewables have helped with this messy issue.
Seems to help my pet's mental status.
from Boulder. CO05/13/2013
Before I started using this he seemed to be developing dementia,but now he seems much less confused. A friend reccomended it.
Good price. Fast delivery
by Missy Mac
Reliable company. Good purchase. Good products.
seems to help megaesophgus
Our dog has a great deal of regurgitation associated with mega esphagus. Cholodin is one of the recomended natural treatments. It may or may not help-in our case luckly it worked wonders. We notice right away if his daily dose is late or missed.
My 11yr old Chihuahua no longer has seizures thanks to Cholodin. She takes 1/4 a day so the bottle lasts a long time. I have seen no side effects and she even seems to have more energy since being on them. A great, healthier, cheaper alternative to the harmful drugs other vets may recommend for seizures. I can't say enough good things about it. And Entirely Pets delivers them to me 2 days after I order!!
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.
I have been giving these to my senior Bichon for a few years, and they seem to help his senility issues. He loves the taste and eats them quickly.
Makes my dog restless
I gave my 15 yr old, 7 pound poodle 1/8 of the pill. It made her restless at night and she could not sleep. I stopped, then started with one dose about 3-4 weeks later. Same result. It is a waste of money for me. Maybe it helps larger dogs.
from Baltimore, MD04/03/2013
I have a. 15 year old dog and since taking it for about a month she is more alert and awake during the day. She doesn't run into things the way she used to and she doesn't get surprised as easily. She still wets in the house but not as frequently. Overall I have noticed a marked improvement, so if u have an old dog it's worth a try and reasonably priced.
So far, so good....

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!
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.
Awesome vitamin supplement great value
from Urbana, Illinois10/13/2013
Stubby our rat terrier has been on these for a
long time. A great supplement to help keep him healthy . It is very affordable and I highly recommend it. Stubby is almost 15 and 1/2.
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.

Seems to help my dog a bit - not the raves I found in other reviews, but certainly not hurting.
from New York03/29/2014
My 10 year old dog is blind and developed doggy dementia. I had read that this product might help him with his problem. We are still on the first bottle, but he seems to be doing a bit better. He's not getting lost in the yard like he did and he's able to find his bed at night now as well. Has it helped? I don't know for sure, but I think it may have and I would recommend it.
Cholodin - Super Geritol for Pets
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.
Excellent product for older dog
by Aussie owner
from Pittsboro NC10/30/2012
I have used Cholodin on several aging dogs and have found it helps delay old age congnitive issues. My current older girl still runs agility at age 13 and I really think Cholodin helps keep her mentally focused.
Something necessary for my dog's health
from Ft. Mohave, Az02/03/2014
I have an almost 8 year old Doberman who has a liver enzyme problem. My Veterinarian recommended that I give him the Cholodin. In the beginning the liver count bounced up and down but the last two checks have been very good. I take him back this month for another check and am expecting good results again. I buy the product from Entirely Pets instead of from the Vet because the price is a lot lower.
Symptoms significantly reduced!
It took about 7-10 days to really notice a difference, but my 16-1/2 year old mini-schnauzer is having significantly fewer moments of crying, staring at nothing, wandering around like he's lost, not knowing his name when called, etc. Physically he's been in fantastic shape for his age, but his mind was slipping. Now he's much better mentally and I can hold off on medication. Wish I had found this 6 months ago!
Stops the shakes
Our 15 year old Border Collie has bad hips. She has problems with trembling legs. The Vet recommended Cholodin. He was charging us $20.00 a bottle. I found the same product on Entirely Pets for only $10.00. The product works great...Lacey no longer has problems with the trembling legs.
Definitely Helps with Dementia
by Dog Owner05/21/2013
My dog has suffered from dementia as he has gotten older. We've had 16 great years and counting! Initially my vet recommended Anopryl and this worked great but was very expensive. My vet recommended supplement alternatives like Novafit, but most of these have been ineffective alternatives. Cholodin has been the best supplement to help with his disorientation. It is more long-term (I give it twice daily) but after a month I was gradually seeing improvement. And although I still use Novafit together with the Cholodin when the dementia gets really bad, this second supplement is only used on a rare occasion. I walk him twice a day and even the neighbors have noticed his improvement!
