A pet's overall health is reflected in the health of the skin. Dogs and cats have much more sensitive skin than humans. And Dr. Thomas knew that skin health was key to overall health. That's why she began her practice focusing on dermatology. She believed effective skin health support called for developing the right combination of natural ingredients.

My Kitties say, *Yum Yum* To this product by MsHollygolly from King City Ontario Canada05/07/2013
Maybe it is too soon to say, but so far my Kitty-Kats say *Yum Yum * to this product. I find giving them the tube kitty malt, does not go over all that easliy.
They really took to these tablets and as fast as i broke the tablets up , each one of my 3 cats were eager to get their fair share. As mentioned maybe it is too soon to tell, but i believe i am on to something here. Finally a kitty hairball remedy they like !!!
It seems to help. by RJ from Arizona05/11/2013
Not all our cats will eat these, and we break them into quarters for the ones who will. It seems to help reduce the number of hairball issues, although during shedding season, we also use the hairball remedy in a tube. No one likes that, but it seems to help where these pills don't. The tablets are a little pricey, but if it keeps the cats from spitting up quite so many hairballs, I'm willing to keep ordering them.
"Miracle Cure" by Susan08/13/2012
This was recommended to me by a friend when my 15 year old cat began constantly vomiting trying to dislodge hairballs. Half a tablet mixed in with his food twice a day, and no more "barfing." It's truly a miracle.
works great by petsitter05/30/2013
My "big boy" loves them and they seem to be working good. Unfortunately, his little sister would not eat them, but she is very picky.
The boys love them by Petal from Pgh Pa12/11/2012
I have two kitties and they love to groom themselves and each other, which of course can lead to hairballs.
I've found that one of these a day keeps them regular, no more hairballs! They love the taste of them and when they hear me shake the jar in the morning they come running to get their "treat"!
seem to do the trick by JC from Cleveland, OH03/09/2013
I have three cats. Spring is right around the corner, and they seem to be popping up with hairballs more frequently now. When I give them these tablets, they think they're getting a special treat. They all love them, and they seem to work!
Best product for hairball / vomit issues with cat by ps11/18/2012
Cat no longer vomits daily since taking this product. Worked immediately since began using in Feb 2011. Wonderful product.
these work by cyberchic03/27/2011
I have been using htese on my 3 cats for a couple of years now and they work. All 3 of my cats were vomiting frequently and hacking up fur balls despite being brushed weekly. They hate the gel fur ball stuff. I crush one of these per day up and add it to a small amount of wet food and they eat it up. No more vomiting or fur balls.
Great Product by Peanut from Miami, FL01/09/2013
This is a wonderful product that prevents hairballs and constipation in cats. Plus they eat it willingly. It is not available in many stores. Please do not stop carrying it!
Best hair ball remedy ever! by Ali06/20/2012
My fussy cats both love this and eat it without a fussy every morning. Absolutely helped their hair ball problem.
Vomit Reduction by Mimi from St. Paul, Minnesota06/06/2013
My 5 cats were vomiting quite often even though they were brushed regularly. I tried the traditional tube for hairballs without much success. It also was a struggle to administer. All of my cats scramble to get Vets Best for Hairballs. They think it is a treat. I can hardly get the food in the bowl before they consume Pets Best. And best of all - next to no vomiting. I bought a bottle for our store cats. They too love it & it has reduced the vomiting. Love this product. It really works.
We tried this product after our cat refused to take
the gel in a tube type. Velvet was having frequent
recurrences of hairball spitup prior to taking this product. She willingly takes it sprinkled on her food and it has greatly reduced these occurences to almost none.
by from 11/27/2011
It really works by Lynnie08/20/2012
I have a long haired cat who used to have foot long hairballs regularly. Now he has them irregularly and they are only a couple inches long. I give them to him on a plate with other cat treats and I hide it in back of a favorite chair. He thinks it's a game and eats them right up. If he gets bored with it I change the location. Also his stools are firmer, the fiber really helps what were partially loose stools.
vets best ever by susie03/27/2013
have not met a cat that does not like this and it works!
Works great!! by MelRaeGom from Berkley, MI06/15/2011
My dog has HOD (a growing bone disorder in large breed dogs) in his right wrist, he seems to have grown out of it for the most part but the symptoms come back after he's been playing hard with other dogs or jumping around a lot... he limps and babies it, so I know he's in pain. I bought this hoping it will help with his aches and pains, and boy does it! When I know we're heading to a place where he'll be playing hard I give him one before we head over there and one after we're done... and no limping!! I highly recommend this product and will definitely keep purchasing it for my little man!
Vet's Best Aches and Pains by olemom11/03/2011
My 13 year old doxie was having trouble getting up 2 short steps from the back door. He also moped around, barely lifting his head. After 1 day (2 tablets) he was getting up the steps much easier, and was able to stare up at me with his limpid brown eyes, begging for a treat. What a difference! He srafs down the liver flavored pills with no fuss. I would recommend this product to any pet owner with older dogs.
Product works reasonably well by Jan11/20/2012
This product worked for my 12 year-old corgi who has some arthritis in his front shoulder. I can definitely see an improvement and I'm happier about giving him this medicine as opposed to 1/2 of an adult aspirin which I was giving. I would recommend it for others to try with their older, arthritic dogs.
Best Product Ever by Joan from Illinois07/09/2012
I have a 13 year old girl who would not eat and seemed to be uncomfortable and in some pain. She has responded well to this medicine and is now eating again and is able to move around much better.
Works very well by Myra from Wysox, pa06/22/2013
My 11 old Golden Retriever feels much better now that's she's been taking this. It's as good as the Vet prescribed Rymidyl .

Amazing product by Lincoln from Cumberland Plateau, TN03/10/2010
My golden Retriever, 8 yrs old, was on rimadyl for arthritis in hip joints for over a year.....I just could not afford, nor did I want to keep him on that drug so early in his life. I tried Vet's Best Aches and Pians tabs....just one a day and he is fine. I see no difference in going off the rimadyl and it has been TWO MONTHS....he walks 3 miles with me 6 days a week!
Excellent product by k9jane from Camp Point, Il.11/20/2011
Great purchase by puppymom from Woodbine,Ga06/21/2012
I tried this right after I got it. It worked great and the dogs were calm and NO side effects. I recommend this to anyone with a dog that gets nervous from thunder storms or fireworks. Great product!!!!!

Best Ear Wash To Use by Sunshine in Las Vegas from Las Vegas, Nevada02/26/2013
This product is so gentle for my dogs ears. It does not have an alcohal base and is all natural. My dog does not even move when I put this in her ears. Be sure to put in right after they get out of the water.
awsome product by k9 designer11/12/2011

The best ear products available by Polian01/26/2013
Have tried many ear products for my dogs, and this is leaps and bounds beyond anything else - including the more expensive products. For dogs with irritated ears, expect improvement 12-24 hours after first use, fully clear in 3 days.

Best I've found by TK from Upper Michigan05/13/2012
This is the best product for ears I've found! I have used prescriptions from our Veterinarian without results. Vet's Best does NOT have alcohol in the ingredients and does NOT burn or irritate when used. We have seasonal allergy issues and love Vet's Best for ear relief. We have another dog with continuous black waxy ears that until using Vet's Best was constantly itching and now has full time relief.
GREAT STUFF ! ! ! by dogmom10/18/2011
This ear relief wash and dry is the best. It thoroughly dries the infected ears so they don't have that greasy look to them and it smells so fresh and clean. I've tried many other products for my dogs ear infections but this works the best. I even gave it to relatives and neighbors that have dogs with ear problems.
Leaves my Labrador's coat soft and conditioned without being sticky. I lightly spray it on my pet before brushing/grooming.
vet's best is.... by katie from dallas,texas02/10/2012
vet's best products are helping with my dogs sensitive itchy skin issues. he likes his baths so much that he jumps into the bathtub on his own & waits for me. i think he knows he is going to get relief.
thanks, vet's best
My groomer loved this! by Sammy's Mommy03/05/2013
I ordered the moisture mist conditioner by mistake, because in the past I have ordered a liquid conditioner that you put on and rinse off. The moisture mist leave-in conditioner worked great and my golden's coat is soft and gorgeous!

Vets Hot Spot Spray by carol30 from West Palm Beach02/04/2012
Vets hot spot spray cures my dog from scratching from his dry skin
Best non-chemical anti-itching spray by Jannie from Scottsdale, AZ03/25/2013
I was glad to find a natural anti-itching spray containing tea tree oil. My 14 year old cancer surviving Wire Hair Terrier has allergies and receives allergy shots. After all she has been through, I didn't want to use steroid sprays. She receives instant relief with Vet's Best and I have no problem if she needs multiple sprays. I have just purchased the shampoo, and after the first use, really like it also. I highly recommend this product.
Don't ever be without this product by Karon Compston12/12/2009
I tried your Vet's Best Hot Spot Spray on my 8 year old pug and what a difference it made. As soon as I spray it on I can see him become more content. Its really helping the hot spots
This spray works great. It's all natural so I don't have to worry about our pets. It's so easy to use.
No over powering smell. I love it!
Love This Product! by Bitsi from Marion, NC11/28/2012
I have a fenced in back yard for our pets and we live with trees all around. I worried about ticks and fleas and couldn't find any products that worked and didn't make our dogs sick. Until I used this yard and kennel spray. It doesn't make our dogs sick and it kills all of the little pests I use to worry about. I will only buy Vet's Best from now on. This is the best product I have ever used.
by Michele from New Castle Delaware05/23/2013
I bought this because last year we had an outbreak of fleas like never before. Along with the yard spray we also bought Seresto flea and tick collar . So far no fleas. Not sure if its the collor or the spray but thanks maybe to both we have remained flea free thus far.
Best Shampoo by Christine from San Gabriel, CA10/23/2012
We have tried many different brand name of "Tea Tree Oil" shampoo, this one probably is the best that we ever had, and it works very well on my Beagle, as you know, Beagle always have skin issue when changing the weather
Delivered from Desperation by Happy from Los Angeles, Cal. 9004303/10/2013
I was totally discouraged about my dog's
sesitive skin problem, my groomer, Donna,
("The Bowsery in L.A., Ca.), gave me a bottle of Vet's Best Hot Spot Shampoo. That was (3)
years ago and problem solved
Excellant tea tree oil shampoo by Jannie from Scottsdale, AZ03/25/2013
I use the Vet's Best anti-itching spray on one of my dogs. Since I highly recommend this product, I tried the shampoo and highly recommend it also. One of my dogs has allergies and needs allergy shots. This shampoo relieves her itching and smells really great. I also use this product on my other dog and recommend it, especially if the dog loves to swim.
vets and best by keith from north wales england08/17/2012
we used the shampoo on a terrier due to pup , it cleaned her up great and all the eggs where also removed when we rinsed her off,that was a week ago and so far so good no little visiters have returned.Also it has left her coat looking really clean and fine a great achievement for a scruffy little terrier.
<3 it by Yorkie Lover02/08/2013
This stuff does as it says... i put it on my fur babies the fleas die right then & there!! i would pour it on them or if i saw the flea spray right on flea & it would die right then & there. after i put it on i would brush the shampoo in leave it on them for 5 mins then rinse.... plus it smells good too
I love this product. It smells wonderful with the fabulous essential oils. It kills the fleas immediately and comforts the dog's itch. Great product.
This helped greatly with my Weimaraner who had raw red skin and scabs along the back of his legs. I think it soothed the itch and discomfort of course after making sure he didn't lick it off. I like that it has natural ingredients. The smell is strong but pleasant. The sprayer sometimes sticks. His skin has completely healed!
I think this would work good as a first aid spray too for minor scrapes etc.
Good product by Just "T" from CA07/13/2012
I took this to show my vet & he said it was ok but preferred a different product I bought from this site.
Don't know if it's working (will need a few more months to be conclusive), but the cat's LOVE it. When I saw the size of the tablets, I thought they'd never eat them. But, I break them in quarters and can't serve the stuff fast enough.
This product saved my cat!! by Jas from Charlotte01/16/2013
My Birman cat experience a urinary tract blockage and was not able to urinate for days. He was in pain and kept straining in the litter box and in corners of my house. Even after having him unblocked at the vet's office at a price of $600, he was still able to urinate very little. I thought I would have to put him down as I could not afford the surgery and vet stay that would be needed to fix the problem. I found this supplement online, ordered it and it came within 3 days! My cat is very picky, but he took to these immediately. The next day, he was eliminating normally. That was 2 years ago. I now give him one tablet once or twice a day, and we have had no more visits to the vet for this issue again. Great Product!!
Product does wonders by Big Brother03/05/2012
I had urinary tract problems for years until my parents found this for me. I now beg for one of my "vitamins" each and everyday. My folks tell me that it's good for me and that my problems have gone away since I started taking it. I really don't care, I just like the daily treat.
Tablets did the trick! by KLTWill from Myrtle Beach, SC12/05/2012
All I can say is these tablets did what the vet couldn't do. They are worth their weight in gold. My male cat suffered from recurring UTI's and since starting him on these he is soo much better and running around the house like a kitten instead of making a million trips to the litter box all day long! I give him 2 in the am and 2 in the pm and as soon as I forget...BAM he's back to visiting the litter box several times a day.
Product is best I've found, hands down! by Aunt Sharon from South Florida10/28/2011
Over the years I've had several cats that have chronic urinary issues and this product has always been the best I've found for keeping my cats happy and healthy. Was having trouble finding it in the stores and was pleasantly surprised to find it on the Entirely Pets website and at such a great price.
Great Product! by tlbladybug from Vineland, NJ04/02/2011
I have one kitty, that despite being put on a prescription diet available at the vet only, she would still get UTI's.....some so bad there would be blood in the urine. Rather than bring her back to the vet time and time again, only to be put on antibiotics....I decided to try this product. Not only is it highly palatable to a cat (liver flavor), but it is the easiest thing to just grind up a couple tablets and mix into food. She hasn't had a UTI since. I'm so grateful to have this product....it's safe, all natural, and works miracles! Highly recommended to anyone who has a cat with urinary tract issues. Terrific price too!
New Version of an Old by Marta Smith from Etna, CA01/19/2012
This product is a new version of what I use to give my cat. The old kind really helped her urinary infections. The new is just a little different and my cat is taking a little time to get use to it. It smells really good to me though so I have high hopes.
My Cat is Happy by Docwenj from Los Angeles, CA01/26/2013
My cat is doing well on this product. I crush the pill and mix it in his wet food. It helped lower his PH so he doesn't have anymore bladder problems.
Super product! by Darma05/15/2011
This product is super great.In a matter of a few days my cat, Mister started doing better after taking the Vets Best Urinary Tract Support. I had no problem with him taking these. He loves them and looks forward to them every day. I'm so glad that I found this product and so is Mister. Thank you fo this great product. :-)

As any person who has had a cat with UT problems is aware, the best offense is a good defense. After having multiple trips to the vet for urinary tract problems, I sought some homeopathic remedies. I have been using this product for over a year and am very pleased with the results. The last visit to the vet (including blood workup) revealed no elevated kidney readings.

Wonderful Product by dlheat from New Whiteland, IN02/21/2013
I have purchased this product for several years for our MaineCoon Cat "Smokee Joe" and he does not like the flavor of Fish which most of the UTI Meds have. It is a great maintenance tablet to give him weekly to help prevent another UTI which are very painful for him. I was lucky to find this product on your website and ordered 2 bottles. Smokee takes these tablets like a "treat" and has no problem with the taste of them. This is a GREAT PRODUCT.
Terrific product! by Kyudo's 'mom' from Seattle, WA11/15/2012
One of my cats has problems with crystals in his urinary tract. Taking him to the vet for repeated treatment proved both costly and traumatic for my kitty. Fortunately, a neighbor had a cat with the same issues, and recommended Vet's Best Urinary Tract Support. I gave it a try, and it's really helped...so much so that there have been no vet visits since then. (knock wood)! Kyudo loves them, and I have no problem getting him to take his twice-daily dose. My other cat also demands his share as well.
This is a very helpful product, and I highly recommend it.
Buy it in bulk! by Ellen11/02/2011
My cat has urinary tract issues and this is the only treat I can find for him and the only place I can find it, so I stock up! Please don't stop selling it!!!!!
tablet changed by love kitties10/10/2011
A little harder to administer to my kitty. The tablet is thicker and a smaller diameter than before. I could break the previous tablet into several pieces so my cat could chew them up. If I break this tablet it doesn't break into pieces--just turns to dust.
Cats Loved It!!! by Sabrina from Eagle Point, OR11/06/2012
Not only did my cats love these tablets making it so very easy to give them their vitamins, but the one cat that was eliminating outside of the litter box stopped!!! Awesome!!! :)

Will Always Use This Product by MJT10/04/2011
I began using this when my male cat kept getting urinary tract infections. Since I began using this, he hasn't had another infection. I can no longer get it in the pet stores around here, so I now buy it in quantity online. I received my order from Entirely Pets within two days of placing my order.
EASY to administer! by ladnohr06/27/2012
I was worried about getting my cat to take the tablets. I simply break a tablet into 4 pieces and add them to her dry food each day. She seems to like the taste better than her food. Most important to me are the positive results. YEAH!
Saved our cat from a life of misery!! by Angeleyes2u from New Jersey01/19/2012
I can not say enough good things about this product. I have a male cat who has blocking problems and gets UTI's on a regular basis. I started giving him one tablet a day (he's super picky) and he comes running when I open the bottle!! He has been receiving this for about a year.. He hasn't had ANY issues (crystals, blockages, infections) since we started these. He now urinates as quick as a faucet ;) His coat looks great too... This is the cure!!!
Excellent Product !! by Angel from Pittsburgh, PA05/25/2011
I have been using this product for over a year after several rounds at the vet. It helped my cats urinary infection within days. I now give them daily to her as a treat. She hogs them down like candy. I think she looks forward to them because she knows they make her feel better. I now cannot find any in my area. Thank you so much for offering this product. I cannot recommend this product enough.

A miracle-working product! by Margie from Seattle, WA02/10/2012
Vet's Best Urinary Tract Support has saved my cats a mountain of problems. One, Kyudo, is especially prone to struvite crystals in his urinary tract, and had to go through unpleasant and expensive treatment at the Vet.
My friend, who had been using the Urinary Tract Support treats for her kitty, told me about it, and I immediately purchased several bottles.
Both my cats adore the taste, and consume them with gusto every day. When Kyudo does exhibit troublesome symptoms, I merely increase the number of treats, and within a day or two, he's fine again.
This result is truly amazing, and has saved my cat from discomfort, and me from huge Vet bills!
Thank you for carrying this truly superior product, and at such bargain prices! My friend who had recommended this product to me had been paying three times the price elsewhere. Now, we both order it from Entirely Pets!
Thank you again.
Cats love the taste of it. by Lalaine03/22/2013

Vets Best Feline Urinary Tract Formula by Cathy from York, PA02/18/2013
I have been ordering this product for about 3 years and am very pleased with it. My cat loves it and has not had a Uti since being on it.
Also I get my order within a week of ordering it and have never had a problem with an order. Very happy with everything!
great product by cat friend02/23/2010
our cat is diabetic and started having urinary trouble, we didn't want to change his food because he was doing so well on it but needed to do something about the urinary trouble. I looked around and found this product at the pet store. It worked wonderful he hasn't had any problems since he started taking it 6mo ago. He also love the taste he thinks he's getting a treat
Excellent product by MamaKat58 from New York06/02/2013
My 10 Tr. Old male has to eat Hills CD .... I started him on this when he developed a UTI...The vet put him on an antibotic for a week... that was no fun at all...so now he takes these every day and loves them... so far he has UTI free which is a Blessing for both him & me....
Vets Best Urinary Tract Pill by barjacbar from Virginia Beach, VA12/15/2011
These pills really work for cats that have had repetitive urinary tract infections. The price and service from this company were superb!!
The cats think they're yummy! by Amy from Central Florida12/09/2011
My vet recommended that I get this for my cat who has recurrent bladder crystals and blockages. They have been successful with Urinary Tract Support with another cat. They also recommended I give it to my other cats because it could help prevent them from getting the crystals or blockages. So far, everyone has been healthy and they love the pills. They come running when they hear me open the bottle because they think they're getting a treat. I wish all supplements could be this easy!
Product has been changed since my first order by JMP01/04/2013
I initially started ordering this product for one of my cats with recurring UTI issues. The first several orders I received contained wafer-like tablets that could very easily be broken into smaller pieces and added to her food. She loved the tablets and her UTI condition was in check for quite a while. I continued to use the product because I was having good results. I ordered another 2 bottles of the tables a few weeks ago and when I opened the bottle, the tablets were totally different than what I had been receiving -- they were small and hard and VERY difficult to break up. I have had to resort to crushing the tables into very fine powder to add to my cat's food, but the problem is she now won't eat her food if I add the pulverized tablet to it. I have no idea what has happened, but two days ago, I ordered another product which is packaged as a powder and I'm hoping to have better luck. Unfortunately, I still have another bottle of the "new" tablets that I won't be able to use.
Great Product by Matt10/15/2011
My cat loves to eat the broken up tablets and they cleared up his urinary tract problems within a couple of days. I would definitely recommend this product.
My cats love it and it just plain works. by cminniect02/23/2012
We were having issues with 2 of our cats getting urinary tract infections. After a course of antibiotics we put everyone on these tablets. We usually crush one pill and mix it into their food in the morning and another one at night. Haven't had an issue ever since. I even use these as treats on occasion. I use a pill splitter and cut a tablet into 4 pieces and they absolutely love them! I would highly recommend as a safe natural way to keep everyone happy and 'going'.
