Only product that I have found that makes the animals coat healthy, shiny and keeps the animals in great health. Lucy was on another product from the vets when I got her and her coat was yucky, dry and unhealthy. Within a week of being on the Science Diet there was a huge improvement and Lucy has thrived on this. Whenever I have changed to supermarket food when I have run out the of the Science Diet my animals have gone down hill and then it has taken a good 6 months for their coats and health to come right again. Big lesson learnt not to change from the Science Diet over the last 15 years.

Bottom Line

Yes, I'd recommend this product to a friend
