Has anyone tried this product or had it recommended by their vet? I know some supplements and products are reviewed by Rene before being suggested on this forum but I didn't find this one in my search.

The product was developed by veterinarians to provide cats and dogs with all essential nutrients in a palatable drink. Some vets recommend it for pets who refuse to eat after surgery, when antibiotics cause tummy problems, etc.

I see there are good reviews on Amazon.com but then that's not always the best resource. I'm not one who is big on supplements but have been discussing this product with a friend whose dog may have surgery and tends not to eat well at the best of times.

Thanks,

Kerren

This is one I haven't heard of but it looks super interesting and reputable what with the vet testimonials and all. When a vet is willing to go out on a limb (Doh! Pun not intended! laughing) to put their name and their research institution behind a product it says something.

But one thing I can't find is a nutritional label with the exact ingredients, which concerns me. I'm going to keep this on my radar, thanks for the head's up.
