They've changed the ingredients and the dry skin is back!
on 21 June 2016
I have been using the yumega plus for my five year old lurcher, for about a year, with great results for her very dry skin. It was the first product to work after many others. Recently though, I received this new product, the re-branded 'itchy dog', even though I ordered the yumega plus. I assumed it was just a re-branding of the same old product...No!
Upon closer inspection, the ingredients have changed, it has all the same ones there, but with the addition of 'fish oil'. We continued to use it, thinking it would give the same results. Unfortunately, the dry skin, that had been cleared up for a year is back again. My poor girl is scratching away again. They have clearly diluted the good oils, the salmon, the star (borage) etc. with the fish oil but it's not as effective anymore. It's very frustrating when companies make these changes to save a few pounds, at the expense of our animals health. The product is also now in a plastic bottle, whereas before it was glass. More cost cutting at the expense of the quality of the product. I won't be buying this again and am going to buy the oils seperately and make my own blend from now on.
I hope this review will help other people to think twice and that lintbells go back to their old formula. This is definately NOT new and improved!
