Be patient, it took around 2 1/2 weeks to see improvement

I have two dogs, one is a probably a lab/boxer/pitt mix, the other a chiweenie (chihuahua /dachshund mix). My lab mix was suffering from mild allergy type itching mostly on her paws. My chiweenie was super itchy all over all the time. It started this fall. He has always been an itchy dog in seasonal allergy peaks but usually benadryl or hydroxyzine helped. Not this time.
A vet visit led us to Apoquel (sp?). The treatment he needed for most possible relief was around $150 a month. We did a half dose and paid around $80 plus vet visits and testing. He was better but not as great as we wanted. We could not afford the Apoquel monthly in full dose and the half was only somewhat helping but we could definitely tell a difference. So I started searching for alternatives. Burts Bees conditioning spray, helped my lab, nothing for my chi. Paul Mitchell dog conditioning treatment (not a huge difference on either dog), I use Pet Solutions shampoo and saw only a few hours relief.
I found these in my search for more solutions and the reviews had me sold. I could not wait to try it with my fur babies. They loved the taste and would do their tricks for them.
After two and a half weeks I hadn't seen major differences in my little chiweenie. I was so sad, I thought this might be the winner and a lifesaver for us all. After seeing some more reviews about time, I told my husband I thought we needed to wait a bit longer, so we kept our patience. By the third week our dog is 95% better with itching, gnawing at his skin, and scratching roughly. I honestly believe these are miracles for my pups. The only downside is the price.I wish it were a bit cheaper since I have to buy it monthly for my two dogs. IT sure beats the price of apoquel and vet visits tho.
I have to add to this review as I have ventured away to cheaper products (recently deals from Prime Day) to try to get my dog relief AND my wallet relief...and I'm back again to order this. It seems to be the only thing that helps my chiweenie. My lab mix does fine with the other brands. I just wish they were not raising the price steadily on this product. Can't we keep a helpful product at a decent price? Zesty Paws is clearly growing in popularity and selling more. Why do you have to charge more? Ah, the American way I suppose, but we'll keep doing what's best for our pets, and this certainly is the best so far. Well wishes to all the pets, and their caring owners.
