I started this thread wondering about other’s experiences with Dino Vite. My dog had routine ear infections at the time. I did tried Dino Vite for several weeks. Never finished the initial container though. Got off the path I guess. No bad reactions to report. I am guessing Grover outgrew his issues. He is just past 3 1/2 yrs now. No ear infections since my initial posting nor pad licking. So, can’t say the supplement helped him any but it certainly didn’t hurt either. Just keeping the course with his grain free diet. Was Taste of the Wild and now it is Earthborn. Mike
I think the Raw Food Advocates would point out that regardless of the quality of the ingredients, even in the 4-5 star levels for dry dog foods, that much is lost to the heating process. What bodes well for these higher levels is the lack of substandard or bad elements. Maybe this is the void that products like Dinovite fills in. Their product is freeze dried and has not been subjected to the heating process(?). Grover’s Mom quit feeding at about 6 weeks. Maybe if he was supported by his mother’s milk another few weeks he wouldn’t be so sensitive to his diet or environment and I wouldn’t be looking for additions to his nutrition now. He has always been on so called quality processed dog food but something wasn’t enough. To date he has been doing Dinovite for about 10 weeks and no paw licking, no ear infections. I am pretty happy about this direction. One vet had suggested I put him on a maintenance Benadryl type product. A ridiculous solution to a dog barely 2 yrs old.
Update: so far no paw licking and no ear infection. Both were chronic ongoing symptoms before. Was it the Dinovite or did he simply outgrow his problems? Don’t know. I got him at 6 weeks and he has always been on grain free dog food, first Taste of the Wild and currently Earthborn. Both have decent ingredients for a dry processed food and both rank highly on this site. Something wasn’t enough however. I like the results so far so I’ll keep using the Dinovite. Its an ongoing rubber meets the road experiment. If we go a year with no ear infections I’ll be a believer.
A feedback to my post. Several weeks into using Dinovite I see paw licking has ceased and ear infections have been on hold too. I’ll be convinced though if this continues though the summer. Grains or no grains the product claims to improve nutritional support. I have had my dogs on grain free dog foods but I know they get grains from good natured people handing out treats.
