Just a update incase you need B12 for your dogs. Called Wonderlab this morning for an order of B12 .....Got the order going through. They told me should be shipped in 8-9 days from today.
The lady told me they laid off a lot of workers. That they usually get around 1,000 orders to be filled it is now 9,000 orders they are filling. You may need to call in don't wait......

Hello - I just started giving my B12 deficient dog the Wonderlabs product. It says on the instructions to open the capsule onto food, does anyone know if this is necessary? Or is it just as effective when giving it in pill form with or without food? Thanks!

Personally I dont feel its essential to open the capsule but there must be a reason for them to say it

Is There a reason that you find an issue

My girl was difficult to start but she took all of her medicines like a trooper

just give with their food, I always sprinkled

I have given my dog Wonderlab b12 intrinsic factor pill for years. All I do is put it in with her food cover up a little and she eats it with her food. No need to open the capsule> I don't know why they tell you to do that.

IMHO i cannot say enough good things about Wonderlabs.... they have bent over backwards to carry products at our personal (Epi4Dogs) request to help our EPI dogs and they have also reached out to supplement companies outside the USA to help them with their EPI dog supplement formulas.... and the quality of their products is top notch.

Regarding their Pet Factor B12 pills (or Trinfac... same stuff) for years, i have just given the capsule whole, tossed in the food for my EPI gal. not need to incubate but if you toss the pill in the food when preparing instead of at the end (just before serving) both techniques are fine.....

However... i also had another dog (non-EPI ) that was a wee bit fussy taking pills...so i used to tuck the B12 capsule into a little blob of cream cheese and i gave it to him that way. Worked like a charm :)
Olesia, was owned by Izzy, a 35lb Spanish Water Dog (SWD), Diagnosed at 1.5 years old - TLI results 1.. Izzy passed away on February 13, 2020 at 15 years old. She lived with EPI for 13+1/2 years. It was because of Izzy that Epi4Dogs was started... she was the inspiration. May her legacy of helping others with EPI continue for as long as needed.........
