I actually use this product for one of my dogs. She has a disease called Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (or EPI). Dogs with EPI are prone to low B12 levels and require supplementation usually through monthly B12 injections. Through much trial and error I found out that my dog was not able to maintain her B12 levels on anything less than weekly shots. Several members of a Yahoo group I'm on for people with EPI dogs started using the Metagenics Intrinsi B12/folate for their dogs. With our vet's approval we decided to try it. She's been on the Metagenics product for almost 2 years now and maintains a very high B12 level. Most OTC B12 supplements will not work for dogs with EPI because they lose the ablilty to absorb the B12 without the intrinsic factor. The Metagenics product contains intrinsic factor, so it has worked for my dog and several others on the Yahoo group. Giving my dog a pill a day is so much easier than having to give her injections once a week.
