Best pet probiotic for the price!! My cats have very sensitive stomachs & they really needed a probiotic to help calm their tummy problems. I just open up the capsule & mix in the powder with their canned soft food. My cats don't even know they're getting a little something extra healthy!

This product keeps my 2 rescued cocker spaniels in good health. Both like to eat whatever they find in the yard - lizards, dirt, etc. - plus what shows up during the daily walks.

Gentle Digest by Betz from Indiana09/18/2013
My older dog Eddie was having stomach problems, which he had never had before. I changed food and tried everything, then I found Gentle Digest and decided to try it. I also asked my vet about this product and she said it was good. So I started giving him 1 in am before eating and 1 in pm before eating -- he has done great on these and I'm glad I found them.
Highly recommend by susang09/20/2013
Have a 16.5 year old terrier that was having gut issues. Within 3 days of starting use of this product his issues have ceased and he is doing well.
He now gets it every 2 days.
Good Product by catman from Miami, FL05/27/2013
My cat started having loose stools and Gentle Digest took care of it. His stools are back to normal. A great product and very inexpensive.
It also helps the cat when throwing up frequently.
Ark naturals Gentle Digest is the Best! by C4Pathology from Jacksonville, NC01/04/2013
Ark Naturals is great for Any digestive problems! Inside the bottle are capsuls with powder inside each. For the dogs we give them whole in a piece of cheese. For the cats we tilt their heads back and break open the capsule and pour the powder in. We use Ark Naturals Gentle Digest for trips, we have two dogs Happy (a 65 lbs Walker hound) and Jellybean (an 18 lbs Transylvanian Hound)(when pets seem to get upset stomachs-they will not throw up on this stuff), We have two cats with irritable bowel syndrome and even thought of having them put down-before we found this wonderful product! (Cat poo outside the litter box in diarrhea form is totally disgusting) with Ark Naturals Gentle Digest-we no longer have a problem with the diarrhea -the medicine actually stops all diarrhea in one day after one dosage! Totally amazing! Our family loves Ark Naturals Gentle Digest and we will continue to use this product! No other product compares to it!
Great product by MC from Miami, FL12/06/2010
My 13 year old cat had frequent big hairball spells. I tried this product for the first time and it really helped. His hairballs intervals have greatly diminished and when he does have one it is a small one. The Pre and Probiotics are helping his digestive system. I definitely recommend this product. You can't beat the price either.
Good probiotic by Owned by a Sheltie08/20/2014
Our one dog has a long history of stomach and bowel problems. This product was recommended and has been helpful in maintaining a balance for him.
good product. by cat lover 1959 from Ohio02/12/2014
I open the capsule & mix it in to their food & they eat it all up!
Gentle Digest by Bets from Indiana09/03/2013
I have been very satisfied with these pills, Eddie has not have any problems since he started taking them, and I took them to my vet to be sure and she said 'Good, keep him on them'.
Vetericyn by La Mesa Cowboy from La Mesa,ca08/07/2013
Great product and will be buying more of this when I run out....my dog has hair again on her back legs
My horse had a rash of some sort which has completely cleared up...Yahoo!
Awsome by dog designs from Sebring, florida11/15/2011
I own a pet resort and we are constantly using this on dogs. We lately used it in a cocker spaniels ears, that had cronic ears, and his pain was tremendous, used it for a month while owner was away and the dog had a new lease on life..started playing and not biting during his grooming. I also use it on all sores and hot spots....LOVE this stuff!!
Cooling and Comforting Reduces Redness Blood by Border collie Gal from Kailua, Hawaii 9673403/02/2011
Love to spray this on dogs boob area, feet, butt end, paws. Wet conditions in yard produce too much yeast, bacteria on dogs skin. I appreciate this product since it has a theory to evaporate moisture instead of creating more moisture. Which helps better then the other products I have tried. I usually try products with Ketoconazole in it.
Product doesn't spook dog and doesn't burn skin. Used for one week so far.
Even tried on my skin. It is not too sticky or does it leave a lasting residue or stain. So far I have purchase five bottles. Its worth it.The Long trigger spray is the easy one.
Great Product by Chummie08/05/2012
My horse has occasional issues with fungus, sometimes little spots of mud fever -- as soon as I detect a spot, I put this product on it. A few applications and the issue is resolved. Prefer the gel because it adheres/stays where you spray it.
Pricey perhaps but worth it.
it work great my dog gets a growth between 2 toers he licks it raw i spray it for a week it will disapear .i get dark blotches no my skin i spray it and it goes away for a few month .
Works wonders! by Grace from Irving,TX06/12/2013
I have a shar pei who has sensitive skin and prone to abrasions even with just branches or brush. This works wonders in promoting healing and keeping scars to a minimum! So thankful for this!!
MIRACLE in a bottle by Dixie04/21/2014
My Pyr had a tumor removed - chewed out ALL the stitches. We went with spraying this on the area vs new stitches. All healed up perfectly.
Saved Dusty's ears! by JoPfef from St. Louis, MO11/30/2011
Bought this to get Dusty's ears healed up. I've tried everything else, and nothing worked. This arrived, and I sprayed the backs of both of his ears, and they have showed amazing improvement in just a few days! He doesn't have ear infections (per the vet), and no allergies; just got on a binge about scratching the backs of his ears. This has solved the problem for both ears, and he's a happy little doggie now -- and so am I. Many thanks!!! :-)
God bless Vetericyn by nonya07/25/2012
This product is MARVELOUS for wounds. I have used it on open wounds for chickens & turkeys that were attacked by dogs. I've used it on hot spots in dogs. I've even used it on poison ivy rash on my husband. This absolutely helps to keep the area clean & protected. The healing is at least twice as fast. Plus, try holding any animal with one hand while you clean a wound with the other. If the best you can do is get a couple of good sprays on the wound, you've helped that animal immeasurably! I prefer the gel, it sticks where you put it.
Best Product Ever by Mags from Columbia, MO10/25/2013
This gel spray is amazing. My vet started my allergy-ridden lab on the original spray version and it was great. To save money, I started ordering the huge bottles and purchased the gel by mistake. It is especially good for my dog because it 'sticks' better. I use this on hot spots, cuts, friction points, and ears. Instant relief. A treatment lasts 12-24 hours before scratching returns. If you are concerned about looks, go with the regular spray instead because the gel does gunk the hair up a bit.
Great Product by Ashyasmom08/25/2013
This was recommended by my vet. I cannot begin to describe the skin condition that my dog was experiencing. He had a reaction to medication, and his back looked like he had the worst case of road rash ever. It has been 6 weeks, but his back is almost healed. Even my vet cannot believe how well he is healing. This product is the best.
One of the best products for damaged skin by Trish from Orlando, FL03/26/2012
My Shar Pei has allergies. She scratches her skin raw, and the spots can quickly get infected. This spray has dried out the spots and allowed them to heal faster. I think the product is worth the money. It may not work for everyones pets, but it worked for my dog!
Aids in healing, stays in place by CritterKeeper from Texas09/26/2013
I have used this for wound care, on hot spots and a poison ivy rash on my husband. It definitely aids in the healing process. We also have chickens & turkeys that are 100% outside & not as compliant as pets when it comes to wound care. I like the gel because it stays put.
Excellent product by SillySeason11/01/2012
I have a 3 year old, 6 lbs. pomeranian that I adopted as a 3 month old puppy with a congenital heart murmur. He is a beautiful boy but has been plagued by a variety of health problems---hypothyroidism, food and skin allergies---that have caused recurring skin infections and very itchy skin. He was on long-term oral antibiotics (Zeniquin) and steroids (Prednisone or ocassionally dexamethasone) to treat his itchy skin until his stomach could no longer tolerate the oral medications. On the advice of a Veterinarian Dermatologist, his treatment was changed from oral medications to topical treatments---daily bathing with Douxo Chlorohexidine Shampoo and post-bath application of Vetericyn VF Hydrogel Wound and Infection Treatment. I clipped his coat very short and after 8 weeks of daily bathing and Vetericyn, his skin infection is nearly gone and his skin is substantially less itchy. Vetericyn VF Hydrogel Wound and Infection Treatment is an excellent product that I wound highly recommend to treat even the most sensitive skin problems. Also, Vetericyn is pH balanced so that it does not sting when applied to fresh wounds.
Miracle stuff! by Huntryx from Upstate NY07/23/2014
This is a great product-- it quickly takes care of wounds, skin problems, pad sores-- nearly everything my dogs can dream up. It cured a fungal infection on my brother's dog when nothing else the vet tried had helped-- and in 3 days no less! The gel stays on better than the liquid product, and at home we will always have it on hand as long as there is a dog in the house, which means forever! Can't say enough about this stuff.
don't buy from this store by RAR07/06/2013
these people refused to cancel an order an hour after it was placed, yet did not ship for another week. when i complained, they said they would refer my complaint, but despite my writing numerous times, no one ever got in touch, apologized, or attempted to fix. we are a rescue organization and we have ordered a great deal. the person i called first was rude and sarcastic. do not order from these people. if something goes wrong, you will get NO help at all. none. zip. they don't care about anything but getting their money.
Wonderful Product by Suzi from Taft, Calif.01/05/2013
I use Vetericyn on all my animals hot spots or wounds. It's great for any skin related problem!
Excellent product by SueT from North Carolina12/27/2013
My dog had a skin staph infection and I used the Vetricyn twice a day and it cleared it up within 2 weeks. There is no greasy feel to it. When it dries you don't even feel where it was applied. Great for hot spots too. Product lasts for a long time!
Great product by Bchgrl08/03/2012
I have been using this for a skin infection, and it has really improved. It didn't exactly cure it but it held it in check until I could get to the vet for an antibiotic. Used regularly, it may have gone away on its own. I like the gel so much better than the liquid. Would recommend this product.
Works Great by sevenluck from SF Bay Area07/07/2013
My Sherpard has a wound on her side that became infected. Now using a wet to dry solution of this with saline and iodine. Wound is healing and starting to close up. Still have a ways to go but this stuff is great. Best price from this site for the size compared to walk in stores. Walk in stores have it for 8 oz at around $32 compared to 16 oz at around $35. I heard this is vet strengh too. Will order more. Service is great and received order within 2 days too.
Miracle in a bottle for hot spots by Lauren from Chicago area, IL03/27/2012
Got my first bottle at a boutique store. I was skeptical but they do have good products there. I paid a fortune for a 4 oz. bottle but truly this stuff is amazing and worth the money. My dog will chew at her hot spot until it's big and bloody. I spray this on it 4 times a day or as often as I can and it really helps to dry it up, heal, and keep it under control. I first dab it with a 50/50 mix of water/povidone iodine solution to cleanse and then use a spray of this. Amazing.

perfect product , perfect website good prices fast delivery.
Tried and True by Madam X from Flushing, MI11/14/2012
Vetericyn VF Wound & Infection Treatment was originally recommended by my vet and have purchased it repeatedly since then. It's the best product I've used to date to treat hot spots, scrapes, infections, etc. Any skin issue heals faster when this product is applied.
Good purchase by Ann10/12/2011
This spray smells a little like bleach. After I spray my dog's belly, I rub it in with my hands and wash them off. No after smell on me or my dog, and no side affects. Worked great.
Love This Stuff! by Paula04/27/2012
This heals hotspots and sores from scratching almost over night - love it!
is your pet worth it by whitey11/06/2011

Also Everywhere I spray it Her sklin has begun to clear up!! Of course this is product is expensive! But This is from just first bottle!

Use it for everything by Mustang Janis from Quartz Hill, CA06/03/2014
I actually spoke with the CEO in person at a Clinton Anderson tour stop in Del Mar last year and shared how I cured pinkeye, strep throat and skin rashes with his products. It works for everything pet!
Outstanding wound spray by RetrieverFan from Boulder, CO03/05/2011
I'm usually skeptical of products claiming to cure just about every kind of skin problem for pets. Glad to say Vetericyn proved me wrong. My dog (an 8-year-old golden) had a spot he kept biting raw. We tried everything, only the dreaded Cone of Shame did any good. Our vet recommended the Vetericyn as something new and to everyone's mutual delight it worked. The spot is still bald, maybe for good. It does not, however, torment any longer. Next up was the cat's smelly ears. Just sprayed it right in there twice a day. Mission accomplished. Wish I had more pets to try it on. My son calls it the magic spray and asks for some on his cuts because it doesn't sting. We are all highly impressed in this family.
Amazing Wonder Product by spartacus from Highland Ca10/23/2012
I had heard about this before from many people regarding the healing effect but I kept thinking it was so expensive.. Finally I decided to buy a bottle and spray it on my dogs wounds everything I have tried and all the antibiotics and shampoos the vets give me only heal him while he is on them but this went over and above and his sores closed magically before my eyes within 2 days I hope to always have some on hand in my home for any unforseen problems with my animals it is worth the cost . I just wish it came in a larger bottle
My dog has had lesions (itchy) and this product has dried up the lesions substantially in a couple of weeks. I will keep using it and recommend it to others before going through the costly process of minor surgery.
An excellent product to have on hand by The Dogmother from Flushing, MI03/03/2012
This stuff is good for a variety of skin issues. Our vet recommended it, and I was amazed how effective it is. It's the first product I reach for when I see any kind of skin irritation on our infection-prone cockers, and I believe it's prevented some costly trips to the vet.
Vetericyn VF by lilly09/27/2013

Did what it says it will do. He is back to his good health and no itch. Best product I ever tried Thank You.
Great product by Encore from MD10/23/2011
My horse injured his shoulder and had a 4"x1" gash. Antibiotics, cleaning and spraying with Vetericyn VF kept him infection free while healing. Then my dog injured her back paw and I sprayed it 2x a day. It helped heal her paw faster. I now keep a bottle near all the time.
