Yucca Intensive 246 247
No benefit My lab has multiple food and environmental sensitivities which cause him to lick and chew his feet raw. He is on a homemade low histamine diet and takes chlorpheniramine regularly. My hope was to wean him off the prescription with the Yucca Extract, but we are more than 3/4s of the way through the bottle (several weeks worth) and are not seeing any reduction in symptoms. 01/20/2012
Lasts longer than you would think My Border Collie/Lab Mix (78 pounds) had large(size of a quarter!), itchy red bumps on his back that the vet had treated with two rounds of oral antibiotics and steroids, only to return each time. She suggested expensive testing. After reading many reviews on 1-800-PetMeds, I decided to try the combination of: Proanthozone Antioxidant 50mg, Yucca Intensive Anti-Inflammatory, Super Pure Omega 3 Soft Gel Caps and 1-800-PetMeds Be Soothed 12oz Spray. He absolutely did not like when I sprayed the Be Soothed on him, after about two weeks, I came to the conclusion that this was very irritating to him and making the spots worse, so I stopped using it. When I tapered the dose of the Proanthozone, the little bit of improvement that I had seen, ceased, so I went back to the higher dose of 3 every day and that is when everything started to show great improvement! It took about 4 weeks, but they are finally starting to dry out and heal, so I am reordering the Proanthozone, Yucca Intensive and Super Pure Omega. I do have to mix all of this in with a little bit of wet food or chicken broth and dry food. Unlike others, my dog does not think any of these are treats! ** This bottle has lasted me 3 months and is not empty yet. I use 15 drops/day for a 75 pound dog. ** 01/19/2012
Not worth the money My lab got worse when I used this medication, the gas that came out of my lab was well to put it nicely, overwhelmingly bad!! We had to put him in the other room just so we could breathe! Our poor baby was a sad lab! I do not recommend this product it was a waste of money and he itched more and had BAD GAS!! 12/29/2011
Beagles saviour My 5 year old beagle Jinger has had many problems since I adopted her from the pound. One major issue was that she would continuously lick her paws until they were raw and sometimes bleeding at the skin. I could not figure out what was causing this and had talked to many people who said it was probably "Anxiety" but when I came across this product I figure I would try it for allergies. She has been taking it a little over a week now and has not had any more problems with her paws. I began by doubling the dose and then weened her down to a normal dose. 10/28/2011
AMAZING! Before I discovered this product, I would have to take my miserable dog to the vet for an expensive steroid shot to control her itching. This stuff works like a dream...and it only takes a couple of days to begin working! I HIGHLY recommend! 10/19/2011
Yucky, but works...so far My cocker spaniel has been scratching all over since last October - has been on about 6 rounds of prednisone which was the only thing that helped relieve him from constant scratching. We've changed his diet, bathed him in 3 different shampoos, tried different antihistamines but nothing has helped other than the steriod. Not wanting to keep him on prednisone for the rest of his life, we were about to resort to the super expensive Atopica, but we've come across these drops in a review for the Atopica and decided to try it out. It seems to work pretty well. He still scratches but not as bad as it used to be. It seems like after it's been a while since he's had a dose of it he starts to scratch more more, so we'll put a few drops on his food again and he seems to calm down. Hopefully it'll continue to show the results we want for him! He really doesn't like the taste, but he'll still eat his food...just doesn't gobble it down like he used to. I would recommend this product - at least to try before resorting to more expensive treatments. 10/10/2011
A Waste of Money My 11 year old pit bull has arthritis and I had high hopes that Yucca would offer her some relief. I have been administering the meds as instructed for several weeks now and have not seen any improvement. I even increased the dosage according to the instructions and still no results. I will continue giving her the remainder of the bottle but am not expecting any miracles. 09/19/2011
Helped at first.... I started Bullet on this one week ago today. Within 24 hours, the frequent scratching behavior had lessened considerably. I noticed the scratch marks on her bare skin were healing. But now, just within the last 36 hours, I've noticed a new area that she's been scratching and the skin is beginning to show through her hair. Overall, I think she seems to be more energetic, but the hair is not growing back on the initial hot spot as I had hoped and now, more hot spots! I've been giving the med to her diluted in milk, and am wondering if she's allergic to dairy! Will try it for a few more days diluted with juice and see if that makes a difference. 09/13/2011
Awesome Natural Treatment for Stiff Joints Our 8 year old yellow lab began to have a very difficult time getting up from a lying or seated position this spring. We took her to the vet and they tested her hips and found good movement so did not believe it to be displasia but early onset of arthritis. We put her on joint support food and Rimadyl and she improved until the Rimadyl was gone and she immediately had trouble again. When checking on PetMeds price for Rimadyl, I found the Yucca Intensive. Based on reviews of others I decided to try it as an alternative to the Rimadyl for both the cost and the avoidance of side effects. Summer responded with improved mobility after the first day on the Yucca Intensive - it took 2.5 days of Rimadyl for the same level of improvement! We have been mixing the 6 drops of Yucca Intensive in about a tablespoon of the Bacon and Cheese flavor Kong Stuff'n cheese treat made to go in the Kong toy. She eats it with no problem at all, apparently unaffected by any bitterness. I imagine it would work with the cans of cheese product humans put on crackers or in the jarred version of velveeta equally as well. 09/12/2011
A Smart Buy I am pleased with the results so far, Molly has been on the Yucca Intensive for about 2 1/2 wks now and I have seen improvement. I also skipped a day just to see is if it was real and not hopeful thoughts and I won't do that again!! Thank you doctor for your recommendation and I look forward to further conversations with you. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who has a pet that has suffered an injury or simply needs help with mobility and I also give it to my other pet Murphy to help with skin irratation. 09/07/2011
Best Product Bruno is a 13yr old Am Staff w allergies and is going lame. I Have been using the max dosage mixed with his food..he has been doing WONDERFUL.. and I have not had to put him on drugs!!! 08/07/2011
AMAZING Results This product is one of the most effective products I have given to my baby. I have a 10 year old chow who was starting to slow down quickly with her movements despite her youthful looks and personality. Per the suggestion of our vet I put her on Dasaquin and Fish Oil. Nothing was working until I bought her first bottle of Yucca. I SWEAR by this product. It has helped her joints, aches and pains and brought back years to her life. I have recommended this product to a couple of neighbors with older pets and everyone has had outrageous results. 08/07/2011
One of my pomeranians has been skittish and generally nervous since puppyhood. She's scratched herself and bit herself until she bleeds for the last year or so, with nothing really making it go away without just making her go to sleep. This stuff is great! She doesn't have any problem with the taste at all...she's 7 pounds and we just put a drop on a treat every morning and she gobbles it right up. She doesn't scratch even 1/3 as much as she used to, and it's really made her little personality shine. She isn't as nervous around new people and just seems happier and healthier. :) I will say it does seem to make her hungrier, so I don't know if that's a steroidal effect, but I don't mind! 07/29/2011
Disappointed Unfortunately, I think this has made my dog's itching worse! I have been using it for over a week now and nothing has happened except she is starting to itch more. I will try it for another week but if she doesn't get any better results I will have to discontinue using this product. I am really sad about this. I was really hoping that this would fix her itching. 07/25/2011
The Best and Safest Alternative for Joint Pain This is an awesome product that has helped tremendously with keeping our senior and middle aged dogs active and mobile, without all the side effects of prescription medication. It doesn't show results right away, it takes a couple of weeks so don't give up if you're trying this alternative for the first time. 07/22/2011
It Works I have a Beagle Jack Mix plagued with a multitude of grass allergies. I spent thousands of dollars on allergy tests, injections, expensive prescriptions which worked temporarily if at all. A good friend told me about Yucca Intensive, I bought it and give it to my Lucy twice a day and her skin is clear and beautiful - no itching. Summer is the worst and yet her skin is still clear. Thank you to the makers of Yucca Intensive - a real quality of life saver for my dog. 07/18/2011
It works I use the yucca intensive along with banophen antihistamine and Jade is no longer itching and scratching herself. the produckts really works and I would recommend them 07/12/2011
Relief, at last!! My Gertie girl was 8 years old when I got her from a local shelter 2 years ago. Her itching had gotten worse and worse the first year and my vet blamed allergies. I've been trying one thing after another this year to give her relief, including virtually eliminating grains from her diet, giving her fish oil, brewers yeast, various herbal supplements, using special shampoos, and resorting to Hydrocortisone cream when she would develop sores. The itching and scratching persisted and she was at it day and night. Finally tried Yucca Intensive and within 2 days she was 80% free of the problem. It's been over a week now and I consider the problem solved! 07/05/2011
Yucca Intensive My Frenchie has terrible skin allergies and is constantly itchy. Because of a heart murmur I can't give him steroids, so the reviews I read about Yucca Intensive looked really promising. He doesn't seem to mind the taste at all, but unfortunately it has not stopped his itching and scratching. I've been giving it to him twice a day for about 3 weeks and will continue to give it to him to see if there are any positive changes. 06/29/2011
It really works. I was able to cut down to half of a Rimadyl tablet a day by adding the Yucca intensive. 06/27/2011
did not work for us I am sorry to say this product did not help my Latte'. The product was easy to give to her. She did mind the taste at all. I dropped the med on her cookies and she ate them with no problem. She still chews on herself until sores appear. It makes me really sad that this product did not work on her. So now I am trying Listerine ( mouth wash) and Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride on her. 06/23/2011
Not Tastey I cannot write a review on how the product works because my dog wouldn't even eat his food with it mixed in. He didn't like the smell, therefore wouldn't eat it. Goldens are usually finikey eaters anyway but if your dog will eat anything...its worth a try. 06/22/2011
GREAT STUFF My dog has been itching constantly for about a 1 1/2 years..I couldnt figure out what was wrong since he doesn't have fleas or any illness. The vet wanted to run test to figure out the problem which would have been exspensive. It was so sad and annoying at the same time to see him not being able to enjoying a restful evening w/o sctracthing himself constantly.... I read the prior reviews, bought this product and gave him some.. This product began to take effect the very first day!!!!! The constant itching almost came to an end fter he ate his food.. after the 3rd day He is no longer itching other than the normal that dogs do which i expect. I am so happy I found this product b/c I was about to lose my mind with that constant scratching sound. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS STUFF..not sure about the taste but it worked for him 06/11/2011
Yucca for arthritis I was sorry to learn after I had already purchased the tincture that it has never been proven to aide in inflammation or arthritis pain. I come from a scientific background, but have always been open to natural remedies. The review that disproves Yucca as an antiinflammatory was found on the Mayo clinic website. 06/11/2011
Hopeful then let down When I read all the great reviews I thought we had found the product that could help my Kasani with this itching. Not one to order something without careful consideration I read, asked, and researched before I placed the order. When it arrived I started giving it to her I saw no improvement at all i used the entire bottle in less than a week this is because my puppy is a 122 lbs Rottie and with the correct dosage you run through it pretty fast. Since I didn't see any signs of the itching stopping I will not order any more. I am not happy with the results at all. 06/07/2011
Didn't work I have a ten year old dog with chronic allergies. We have tried everything from prescription to Benadryl and nothing worked. I was hoping this would be a relief for him, but he is still itching and still miserable. I will have to look for something else that will ease his itchiness and let him be the happy dog I know he wants to be. I will be sending this one back. 06/04/2011
for Sugar & Spice I've been using this for a few months now on my 2 poodle breeds.. I put in food along with the bone enhancement in the mornings. However I don't know how much value they receive as they hate it and sometimes won't eat. Impossible to give twice a day. Since other reviews show great results, I will make a better effort to get this down them twice a day....cause I ain't givin' up.. Thanks Pet Meds 06/02/2011
Could it be True........ Dante, has severe skin allergies. He suffers all summer long, as he gets older starts sooner and ends later. He has no energy, hard to get up. He would wait at bottom of stairs to make sure we are not coming back down, so he won't have to climb them, more than once a night. I had yucca intense on hand, i was giving to one of my other dogs for pain relief, he needed something stronger from vet. I gave this to Dante on Sunday in am, with his fish oil, and antioxidant and multivitamin. I also gave him some benadryl that day as he was feeling so bad, we considered taking him to the vet. I gave him a second dose that night, double dose for acute issues. By monday he was a new dog. It is now wed, and he continues to get his 2x a day in double doses, with his supplements, it's quite amazing. Hopefully this is the answer for skin issues. 05/31/2011
Didn't work for my Westie My 2 y/o gets very itchy. This didn't help with his itchiness & amped him up a bit, which a 2 y/o terrier doesn't really need. I used it for about a week & didn't notice any difference except for the extra energy. I'm disappointed. 05/24/2011
Yucca root/arthritis This stuff is really good for arthritis. I wish that I could get some for myself. I had never thought to look for it in the extract form but why is this only for animals? I am using MSM torpedo tabs for my dogs right now. I only use it once in a while so that they don't develope something undesireable like arthritis. 05/20/2011

Ask & Answer.
Talk to other pet lovers about this product.
Is Yucca safe and or helpful for dogs with liver inflammation, and high liver enzymes?
Answer:Please consult with your vet prior to using this product on your furry pal due to their medical condition.
Answer:You can certainly give Yucca a try. I use it in conjunction with an allergy pill my vet suggested.
As I understand it, Benedryl is not a quick solution for itching, and there are negative side-effects such as drowsiness.
The best thing you can do is consult a vet to find the cause of the problem, and discuss potential meds. It could be as simple as an over-the-counter allergy pill. But only your vet can tell you the correct med and dosage for your vet.
Answer:It is my understanding (as a non-veterinarian) that you can apply this product to a hot spot to discourage chewing, as the taste is extremely bitter. I wouldn't apply it to an open wound though.
The ASPCA and Pet Poison Helpline lists Yucca as toxic to cats, dogs and horses. How is this product different? Is it the root that is not toxic? Is it a different species? Or is it diluted or given in such a small dose so it is no longer toxic?
Answer:Thank you for your question. Once the Yucca has been diluted, it is not harmful due to the low dosage your furry pal will be receiving.
Answer:Please consult with your vet prior to using both products on your furry pal.
