Shed-Pro® for Cats provides vitamins, minerals, and natural oils to help maintain healthy moisturized skin and a shiny coat on your cat, which in turn minimizes shedding. Shedding is a normal process and seasonally can increase. When your cat's skin is moisturized and healthy, it naturally sheds less.
The ingredients in Shed-Pro have been carefully selected to support health and moisture of skin so the hair is retained and remains full and healthy. Garlic has a high sulfur content that can tone the skin and give hair more luster. The sulfur works with B complex vitamins to support the body's metabolism and keep youthful elasticity in tissues, as well as keeping dandruff from forming. Another important ingredient is Cod Liver Oil, which contains Vitamin A and DocosaHexaenoic Acid (DHA) to nourish the skin. Also in Cod Liver Oil are Omega-3 Fatty Acids and EicosaPentaenoic Acid (EPA) to soothe skin in cases where temporary dryness can cause flaking and itching. Lecithin and Safflower Oil are also included as a moisturizers that helps dry or flaky skin by retaining moisture.
When hair follicles are not clogged and skin has proper moisture, hair falls out less. Added Sunflower Oil acts as an antioxidant as it is rich in Vitamin E or tocopherols, which aid in neutralizing free radicals that damage skin and hair cells. Sunflower Oil is a natural and healthy way of maintaining great skin, thanks to its calming and emollient (moisturizing) properties. Sunflower Oil is also rich in Vitamins A, C, and D with healthy carotenoids and waxes that form a protective barrier on the skin. Sunflower Oil is an important source of gamma alpha linolenic acid (GLA) which helps in stopping thinning of hair in aging cats as well. Finally, Zinc is important in normal hair growth and retention.
The Shed-Pro formula of natural ingredients will provide your cats's skin and coat with the nutrients needed to have moisturized skin that holds on to thick and healthy hair. This great tasting fish flavor liquid is easy to administer over your cat's food to reduce shedding without interfering with your cat's natural shedding cycle.
Shake well before using. Pour measured amount over cat's food and mix in.

Initial results should be seen in 4 to 6 weeks. Since each pet's body is different, results may take longer in some pets. To work, Shed-Pro must be fed daily, including during your dog''s natural shedding cycle. If Shed-Pro is dicontinued, shedding will return to previous level.
Fish oil product that is very "fishy", cat did not like it and won't eat food with the Shed Pro added to it.
not all that great by cat lover07/09/2010
This liquid has a very fishy smell. My 3 cats do not like the taste of it at all. I don't really know if it works or not because I can't give it to my cats every day (they avoid their wet food when I put it in, and hardly eat.) I'm lucky to get it in them twice a week and I haven't noticed a difference in the shedding.
They won't eat! by PammyG from North Carolina Coast01/11/2013
My cats (3) will not eat the small amount of wet food they are given if there is even 2 drops of this product in it. They normally can't wait for their nightly "wet" treat. I'm very disappointed as one of them is LONG haired and I was counting on this to help with the shedding hair everywhere problem........
Good product, worth trying! by Izzy's Mom from Maryland06/25/2011
My cat, Izzy, usually won't eat his food if I mix any type of medicine into it, but he actually seems to like his wet food better with the Shed Pro. I can't use the full dose recommended on the label because he doesn't like his food to be too oily and the higher dose upset his stomach. Izzy still sheds, but it doesn't seem to be quite so much and his coat seems more silky. He hasn't been throwing up as much, and remarkably the symptoms he experiences having feline herpes have lessened since using the Shed Pro. Shed Pro is somewhat messy since it is a combination of oils, but I will definitely continue using it and am glad that I tried it!
LOVE SHED PRO by Shelly01/03/2011
I swear by this product.It works wonders for my cats. This is such a great tool in helping control my cats shedding. I recommend it to all of my friends that have cats! they love the taste and I love the fact that I am not constantly vacuuming my sofas anymore.

I have 2 cats and lived in a 2 bedroom apartment with my husband. We had many issues with how much they shed! When we moved we only took one of my cats to help cut back on the hair we had to deal with (my mom took the other). I found a powder that was suppose to work, however my cat HATED the smell and wouldn't go near his food. I did some more searching and came across Shed Pro and bought it. It has NO smell and apparently doesn't taste any different because my picky cat eats his food like normal. We noticed results in the first 2 weeks!! AND the shedding has lessened SO drastically that my husband let me bring my other kitty home!!
and by will from continueLOVE
LOVE this product! by Pat from Florissant, MO03/26/2012
LOVE my big hairy white cat Frankie, but hated wearing him all over my socks and the rest of my clothes! Just after a few days of Shed-Pro, I could visibly see the difference in the shedding. And after a few weeks his cost is as sleek as silk. I tried a different product from the pet store when I ran out, but he refused to eat the food it was mixed with ... so I'm back to Shed-Pro forever!

save ur money by marah from Manitowoc, WI05/11/2010
I have 5 cats and live in an apartment and the shedding & hair is unbearable @ times, even when grooming on a regular schedule(especially w/ 3 long hair cats). I was so thrilled when I found this product, & to have the money back guarantee and the good review, was a plus. Well, none of my cats would touch their food with this in it--it is an oily, orange liquid, with a funny taste(fishy?). With it being so oily it is hard to mix in. My cats ate a little at first, but by about the 3rd day had caught on to it, and just sniffed their dish & walked away. And this wasn't just 1 or 2 of them, but all 5. But I kept trying to gradually get them used to it, mixing it in only 1 meal a day instead of 2, but they still wouldn't eat the 1 that had it in. Ended up always throwing away 5 dishes of food--which I really can't afford. So I am really disappointed, and they get you with the guarrantee, I got and additional 15% off & if I have to pay shipping to send it back,it hardly pays. Might pass it on to someone else, & hope they have better luck w/it.
It is a natural Miracle Drug! by Lucy from Chicago, Illinois03/16/2014
I have 2 larger cats, and with my busy schedule, I have to admit they are not brushed often. I have to say that giving this product with each meal twice a day has saved me. They both hardly ever throw up Hair balls. And they are both over 14 lbs. and both have medium length coats. Their coats are shiny and healthy, and they are both just over 10 years old. I am a believer!
Must taste/smell bad for cat by janet from Texas08/27/2013
My cat would not come near her bowl after smelling the product I put on her food as directed. She did not eat for 3 days, and that was when I emptied her dish and put a clean dish down without the product.
Frustrated by PLBoel06/08/2013
I use this product on a regular basis however this order is on backorder and will be until the end of the month which does not make me very happy so as far as the product goes it is great as for the manufacturer keeping it in stock not so good
