      Working on the gut-skin connection

      Skin complaints are common and typically need what's called a 'multimodal' approach, to reduce inflammation, increase antioxidant activity and modulate the gut microbiome.

      Itchy skin is common

      Nearly 25% of all veterinary visits are the result of skin conditions. It often presents as relentlessly itching, scratching, rubbing and licking.

      Almost half
      of all dogs presenting with skin allergies are eventually diagnosed with atopic dermatitis, a chronic inflammatory skin condition.

      Linked to gut imbalance

      Many skin diseases are associated with alterations in the gut microbiome. Since the gut interacts directly with the immune system, imbalances in the gut microbiome can lead to an inappropriate immune response. Several studies have already found skin diseases such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, and dandruff to be linked to alterations in the gut-skin axis.

      Linked to inflammation

      Stress of one kind or another – fear of thunderstorms, separation anxiety, stranger fItchy skin in dogs is often a symptom of an underlying inflammatory condition. This causes the immune system to overreact and produce an excessive amount of inflammation in the skin, leading to itching, redness, and other symptoms.

      In addition, the skin has a delicate balance between antioxidants and oxidants. When this balance is upset, free radicals can damage cells and tissues in the skin and skin problems can occur.

      What was the reason you switched to bestie...was there something going on health-wise?:: Suffers skin irration regularly,This is to costly for a 27kg dog.

      Just Purchased the 30 pack Skin treats.
      Once opening the package and read the instructions ,I realised I'd been duped.
      After looking back on your advertising info on this product it does not state a Chew per Dog weight ratio.
      My dog is 27kg which as per the Ratio Chart I would have to give him 5 chews each day,That equates to 6 packets per month,at approximately $30 per pack,$180 Monthly.Not happening,
      Will be returning the product and request refund.

      Thanks for your feedback. We're not out to dupe you nor have you be unhappy, so I have gone ahead and refunded you the cost of your order, which had included the welcome discount of $10. No need to return the chews. However, the daily feed guide that's on the back of the pack is also on the website. That said, we will make it even clearer and over the next couple of days we will update the website to reflect those instructions. In addition, we have until very recently, offered a discount on multiple packs so that it isn't as expensive for those with larger dogs. We have just changed that as we are about to move to larger packs and reduced pricing overall. However, the bottom line is that the chews have a high concentration of active ingredients which are expensive and pricing does reflect this. We wish you good luck resolving your dog's condition.

      What was the reason you switched to bestie...was there something going on health-wise?:: My dog gets itchy when she overheats, that why I am giving these chews a go.
      Thera-chews for itchy skin

      My dog is a 15 month old pup and finds the chews too big so I cut them up and spread it over her kibble.

      Thanks for letting us know about 2.5g per chew, these are about as small as we can make them so glad to know you've got a workaround...

      What was the reason you switched to bestie...was there something going on health-wise?:: My dog constantly chewed at her feet and had red stained fur from the constant chewing
      No more red stained fur from chewing or tear stains under the eyes

      It probably took about 40 days before I noticed that the red stained fur under my dog’s eyes and on her feet from constant chewing, had gone. I was quite surprised because I’ve tried so many things that promised but failed to deliver. My dog still chews at her feet from time to time, but significantly less.

      I find I have to cut the chews up and mix into her food as she doesn’t like the flavour otherwise. The newer softer chews are a big improvement on the older hard ones.

      Thanks so much for sharing that! yes, it can take a while and it may also take multiple approaches with some dogs. I'm thrilled to see this result for your dog though...and thanks for the great pics.

      What was the reason you switched to bestie...was there something going on health-wise?:: My dog was scratching and chewing himself continuously

      My dog has been on these tablets for his skin for a week now and the difference it has made is very noticeable. He was chewing himself continuously and now it’s down to a few times a day and short periods. He went off his food for the week and this morning his appetite has returned, he is relaxed and back to normal. I live the idea that this product is natural. And the fact that my fussy dog loves them. When he didn’t want to eat anything else he always ate 2 tablets each morning. Great product. They have made me and my dog happy. So good that he is not scratching and chewing himself anymore.

      I'm so glad the Skin chews are helping!!! And that he's eating them. Thanks so much for sharing that feedback and do keep us posted...and if you feel inclined to take a video...well, we'd love to see one!

      What was the reason you switched to bestie...was there something going on health-wise?:: Itching
      Highly recommend

      Iv found this product to be great, very effective and she’s a fussy eater but gobbles them up like her favourite treat. My dogs itching has stopped and she just seems more herself now.
      Would highly recommend,

      Brilliant! I'm so thrilled that they're helpful and she likes them.❤️
