Dinovite Review

NaturVet Enzymes and Probiotics are billed as a concentrated enzyme blend derived from vegetable sources that comes in powder form and helps promote a healthy digestive tract in dogs and cats. Maintaining the digestive health of dogs is always critical not only for the internal system health of a dog, but also to keep their environment as clean as possible.

Naturvet is advertised as more of an intermittent use product than a daily health product. Yet, the instructions given by the manufacturer state to give the product at every feeding and there is no mention of when to start and when to stop based on symptoms. lack of clear direction from the manufacturer is always a big red flag. Either they don't know (bad) or they don't want to advise you for liability reasons (worse).

Ingredients

Naturevet includes several good enzymes which are known for providing nutritional benefit, although their use of the word concentrated can be debated. Providing this product in powder form is frustrating for consumers for dosage, feeding, and comparing value to other products since they are purchasing by weight and dosing by volume. Naturvet is manufactured by a respected company so safety shouldn't be a foremost concern.

Our reviewers tried this product with their rescue dogs that showed signs of digestion problems and only one saw any significant results. Every other dog that tried it with their food achieved no positive results.

Overall Assessment

As with most singular products, it is hard to justify the cost when there are many complete daily supplements which provide better results for digestion and add the ability to treat skin issues, joint problems, depressed immune function and so on. With Naturevet there doesn't seem to be any harm in adding 1/4 teaspoon to a dog's meal, but there also doesn't seem to be much benefit either. The hassle of using a powder and the waste when adding it to dry dog food make this a poor value.
