When Billy came to us, he had terrible skin and was prone to throwing up. It's an issue we've been dealing with, trying to find the right solution. That means we're always eager to try something new.
Ingredients:As with most supplements, many of the ingredients are things that have value and we don't fully understand what that value is. The first few items on the ingredient list here are dried seaweed meal, brewer's dried yeast, glycerin, dried potato, flaxseed, and lecithin.
The seaweed is all USA-sourced and is high in chlorophyll, iodine, and essential nutrients. It is also rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants which help support healthy skin and coat. The flaxseeds and omega oils also soothe and nourish the skin.
Since tummy and skin issues frequently go together, digestive enzymes are added to maintain a healthy digestive system. Plus B vitamins, zinc, selenium, iron and magnesium help maintain digestive and immune health.
These supplements are grain-free, and contain no gluten. So, they're great for pets with sensitivities or allergies. There are also no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.
Usability:These chews are soft and easy to break apart. Although they could be given whole, we've been breaking each piece into four so it's roughly the same size as a piece of kibble. Then we still into into the bowl with the kibble and wet food. The pups eat them up; no issues at all.
Origin:Made in the U.S.A.
Cost:The cost for autoship on Chewy.com right now is $22.79. Since these are something you'll have your dog on regularly, may as well get the autoship discount. There are 120 in a bottle, so it's a nice supply (lasting up to 8 months for small dogs or one month for dogs over 75 pounds). Not a bad price if it gets you a dog with better skin and fewer digestive issues!
Rating:We've been using the Solid Gold SeaMeal supplements for two weeks now and we think we've seen some improvements. We're going to update this review in another two weeks and give it a rating then. A full one-month period will probably yield the most accurate results.
UPDATE! We have used this product for a month now and we absolutely see some visible improvements. Our dog's hair is thicker and softer and he hasn't pulled any of it out (which he always does in the spring and summer months). We are very pleased with the results of the SeaMeal!
