Daily Best Senior for Dogs
Extremely strong medicine-y smell. Our dog won't get near it. Might contain some quality valuable ingredients but if she won't swallow it what's the point? ALso rather giant size. Advertised as "chewable" but it is hardly that.... just looks like a standard large size lozenge-shaped pill.

Smoke is not a flavor dogs like. And these pills are inconceivably large. Your dog will have to bite into them to swallow them, and will learn quickly not to take whatever "treat" you have wrapped them in.

We have a 12 year old Standard Poodle. Last trip to the Vet, Vet thought she was about 8-9 years old. Her eyes starting getting a bit cloudy so we purchased this vitamin to help with her vision. Cloudiness is better, but surprisingly her energy level is back in full force. We wrestled last night for 45 minutes until I was tired.

My dog doesn't like them
I have had dog vitamins in the past that my dog would just eat as 'treats' and I was hoping that these would be the same. Unfortunately, she won't eat them plain out of the bottle, nor wrapped in a small piece of bread. I was finally able to get her to take her pill by putting it in a piece of cheese. I like the ingredient list on these, my dog is older and needs digestive and liver support, I am really hoping that she will become less picky as she gets used to these.
Oh, also, the scent of the vitamins stayed on my hands even after washing my hands with soap, AND washing a load of dishes. It is a very strong smokey smell. My partner thought I had discovered bacon perfume. Good thing he likes bacon.

Great energizer for older dog
Since taking this supplement, my nine year old greater Swiss mountain dog seems to be rejuvenated. She has no problem chewing the tablet; has a great deal more energy and is more playful.

strong smelling multi
My dog loves treats but he was reluctant each time I offered him one and the smell is very strong. After two weeks, I had to stop as his breath became horrid. Just didn't work for him as I had hoped but will keep trying.

seems to work great
This company I love and the hip/joint products have greatly changed my dog. This senior formula seems to also work great- I have the healthiest dogs ever. with 2 senior pugs (12yrs) and 2 younger dogs (mini schnauzer and german shepherd/golden retriever mix) I give them all this vitamin and they are "thriving".. I totally endorse this product!

Dog Doesn't Like
My dog doesn't like the smell of these. She is very reluctant to eat them. She loves her other vitamins. These have an unappetizing odor.

I bought these for my 11 year old Min Pin. She eats them so I know she likes the taste, good product ingredients too. Will purchase again.

Thought I would try this for my senior dog on a whim. So glad I did! The changes are great. They crush up well and mix in food wonderfully! He is loosing weight too.

I use other dog vitamins in powder form, but always
like to give my dog a multiple vitamin too. This one has a lot of ingredients which the other ones I have don't have, so to me this is a plus.

A pet vitamin my dog likes
Just like people need a little help getting our needed vitamins, our pets need the help too. My dog likes these and will eat them with out any fussiness. She is 14 years old and still has a shiny soft coat. Her immune system is still good and I think these vitamins have helped her maintain her good health. Thanks Swanson.

I wasn't sure if my 9 year old dog would like these because she is very picky but she wolfs them right down.

Daily Best Senior for Dogs
My dog is 9 yrs old now and he was getting tired pretty easy and wanting to sleep more. The vitamins seem to have given him a pick me up and he doesn't seem to groan as much when jumping onto the sofa.

My dog has a lot more energy after taking these
vitamins! He used to get tired quickly but now
has increased stamina.
I would highly recommend these vitamins to
anyone who loves their dog.

not for my dog
She did not want to take this pill, the hickory smell was way too strong. She turned away as soon as I offered it to her, I smashed it up and put it in her dinner, she wouldn't eat her food.
They need to back off the hickory smell a lot. When I opened the bottle it just smelled awful, and artificial.

Good for the price
I bought this product from Swanson based on price. I am a believer that supplements help, but I cannot say for sure if that is true w/ this product.I only know from my own personal experience that I am healthier than a lot of people my age, and I take vitamins and supplements daily - so I give my dog vitamins and supplements daily. The price is right.

Our dog loves the taste-dont give on empty stomach
Our Cattle Dog is beginning to show her age. We want to keep her around and healthy as long as possible, and I think these vitamins for Senior Dogs can help. She does love the taste, and now that she's been taking these for a couple of months, she seems a little peppier, too.
When I first started her on these vitamins, I divided the dose by giving her half the amount that she should have every day in the morning, and the other half at night. But she got sick and vomited one morning shortly after she took the vitamin, so after that I made sure not to give it to her on an empty stomach. She prefers to eat only in the evening, so now I give her the full daily dose then.
The only thing I don't like about these pet vitamins is the price. It seems a little on the high side, especially for the dose that our 80-pound Cattle Dog is supposed to take for her size. (Of course she is worth it.) But the good news is that I recently received an email from Swanson advertising a new, and less expensive, Swanson brand line of pet vitamins and other pet supplements. So starting next month, we will try the Swanson brand.
Thank you, Swanson!

My Dogs are getting old.
I have two large dogs and we are all getting old. I find supplementing my diminishing amino acids mandatory. I started noticing my dogs needed some glucosomine for the same problems I had. Now I give them a Pet Naturals supplement twice a day. This supplement seems to have a generous amount of amino acids as well as other good things. We are very happy with it, and my dogs appreciate it as well.
When I open the bottle, they both come and sit waiting for it. They must know it helps them because I rarely have to call them to take it. There is one minor problem - they don't like the flavor and they don't think it is a dog treat. I have to pop the pills down their throats - they will not chew them. Nothing will convince them to try, but they always come and wait for me to put their pills down their throat. I would like a smaller pill, and one that was coated, but.... this works.... and they want them.

She likes them
I have given these to my Akita/Shepherd dog and she seems to be feeling better. She actually eats them which is a real surprise.

My older pups love their "treat" vitamins ~ in fact will remind me when it is time for their dose. These are a great all around vitamin that are easy to give.
The price is outstanding and the service from Swanson is wonderful. Friendly customer service and fast shipping. Thank you Swanson Vitamins.

This is the best I have used!
Gave this to my 14 yr old dog and it made a difference from the start, our vet asked what I was doing so she could tell her other older dog people what to buy & where.

My 14 year old dog loves these. She thinks they're a treat!
