Biotin is an essential B vitamin and enzyme that synthesizes fatty acids and metabolizes carbohydrates and proteins. Veterinarians agree that biotin supplementation improves coat and skin quality and corrects problem nails (no more splitting and breaking!). Biotin Plus contains the highest effective dose of biotin available in any over-the-counter, non-perscription formula today. It also includes additional ingredients to support the therapeutic actions of biotin: L-Methionine, a powerful amino acid that assists biotin in the formation of collagen and Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B-5,) which initiates cell and tissue repair. In addition, the unique hypoallergenic formula of Biotin Plus is designed to help relieve itching from hot spots, fungal infections, and other common skin conditions.
We love this product! We tested it for six months on a healthy dog that always has a dull coat (even on salmon oil and a premium food) as well as on several dogs with varying degrees of chronic skin and coat problems. It took 45-60 days to see the full effects, but the results were incredible in all of the dogs. Biotin has been used for many years in horses for hoof and skin health. In a collaborative study with small-animal veterinary surgeons (Frigg M, Schulze J, Völker L.), dogs with fur and skin conditions were treated with biotin (approximately 5 mg biotin/10 kg body weight/day) for 3 to 5 weeks. In total, 119 cases could be treated which were reported to show symptoms such as dull coat, brittle hair, loss of hair, scaly skin, pruritus or dermatitis. In 60% of the cases all symptoms were reported to be cured after the biotin treatment and in a further 31% an improvement was noted; in only 9% no effect was recorded. The results confirm the favourable effect of biotin for treatment of fur and skin conditions in dogs.
