Happy & long time user Have been using this product for several years and highly recommend it. Much kinder to my wallet than vet's prices. 06/23/2011
My eight yr. old Rotti that has been constipated recently, maybe due to age. Finally got some relief when I introduced Vetacyl capsules to her diet. I mixed the powder with pumpkin, and switched from dry to canned food. She's big, therefore, needs six capsules. Well worth changing her diet to include Vetasyl. I'm just glad things are now begining to move smoothly for my girl. 05/13/2011
Works Well Smokey, my 12 year old cat, was described by the Vet as pre-constipated. She suggested a suppliment so I ordered Vetasyl. Was worried that Smokey would reject her food because of the taste or smell of the powder. But,no problems at all!! Per the Vet's advice I use 2 capsules daily, and her bowel problem has improved. 03/19/2011
THE answer for constipation Finally I found the solution to my cat's constipation problem. In the last 4 or 5 years my aging tabby has had serious problems with constipation. She gets impacted all the way up to her diaphragm and it can even block her urethra, making it impossible for her to urinate. I've been using Enulose (Lactulose) for the last few years, augmented by monthly costly trips to the vet for enemas and overnight stays. The vet added Cisapride to her medication schedule, but her stools were so hard, the Cisapride just caused more cramping. In desperation I started researching medications and treatments, and stumbled upon Vetasyl. What did I have to lose? It is the answer. Her stools are now soft enough for her to expel and she is a happy little baby! I'm wondering why my vet didn't know about this... She is a very small kitty, barely 5 pounds, so I have to give her half dosages. I would prefer to buy the powder without the capsule, since I have to take them apart anyway. But it is a small sacrifice to see her little body working properly with no pain! 08/18/2014
Excellent for my cat I have a three year old neutered male kitty, 15 pounds, was feral when I got him at 4 weeks old, who had been plagued with smelly soft stools almost on a daily basis since he became an adult and no amount of antibiotics etc. did anything for him. His colitis type diagnosis was not an infection but rather inflammation which flares up. My cat specialist suggested we use WD low-fat chicken flavored prescription cat food ( dry kibble ) and one Vetasyl cap daily. We open the Vetasyl cap, stir with a few tablespoons of water until mixed well, then pour in his kibble, more water, then stir. I mix up a batch ( 3/4 cups or so ) in the a.m. and I give him small several meals of this concoction daily, keeping the rest refrigerated in Tupperware. This VETASYL works like a charm ! He stools were firmer, no smell and he is doing so much better. We have had him on this for a year, and no more problems with his bowels. Initially we tried it with the WET WD cat food, but even though it was low fat, the wet stuff just doesn't agree with him. Important Note: Make sure you get a cat fountain and keep it clean, with fresh water, to encourage your cat to drink a lot of water, which they need when they are on Vetasyl Caps. 11/10/2013

My cat has developed chronic constipation and I have tried Lactalose from the Vet, which failed miserably. Then I tried Lax-eze that worked for a while, but after a month or so, she got bound up again. I thought it was a miracle when I found Vetasyl, using it once a day and Lax-eze for feedings during the day. After spending loads of money at the Vets, finally a cure! Unfortunately, it was short lived, because after 6-months, she is back to being constipated. I encourage her to drink (broth/water), but I am back to square one again. I am hesitant to give her 2-pills (am/pm), but I really need your help / suggestions!

My vet didn't mention in his instructions that I was to open the capsules and sprinkle them on the food -- so I've been doing it for 4 days now (twice a day due to her awful constipation), is this a problem?

Answer: 
Yes, you need to open the capsule, sprinkle on the food. And if the pet won't eat it that way, open capsule in a dish, pour a little water, mix well and then mix into the food.

Answer: 
You might be better off using a probiotic such as NaturVet Enzymes and Probiotics. This should help to settle the pet's stomach better than Vetasyl. Vetasyl is usually used to treat constipation. As long as your pet is doing it's thing, the probiotic is, in my opinion, the better choice.
