About Dinovite

Dinovite is a powdered dietary supplement that is added to your pet’s food daily, and claims to contain vitamins, digestive enzymes, fatty acids, zinc, direct-fed microbials, and trace minerals that can help improve their health.

Unlike other most other pet foods that are cooked at high temperatures and pressure, which can sap them of their nutrients and lead to a nutritional deficiency, in addition to their fillers and chemical preservatives, Dinovite is claimed to be freeze dried and all natural. According to the company, this means that Dinovite contains all the essential nutrients your dog or cat needs to be healthy.

What Do Dinovite’s Products Claim to Do?

For most of us, our pets are beloved members of our families, so when they suffer from dry, itchy, or flaky skin, lesions, yeasty ear infections, excessive shedding, or a foul odor, we want to make sure that it’s treated effectively. And while your vet can help with more serious treatments such as prescription medications or injections, many of these conditions can be attributed to nutritional deficiencies in your four-legged friend.

As a whole foods supplement for dogs and cats that is manufactured in the USA, Dinovite is claimed to contain naturally preserved ingredients manufactured without synthetic chemicals. And because Dinovite contains not just essential nutrients and vitamins, but also digestive enzymes and direct-fed microbials (e.g. probiotics), the supplement is claimed to help your pet’s body function properly, and to improve their skin, coat, and overall health.

Dinovite’s manufacturer claims the supplement can be used over 2 steps:

  • Add one scoop of Dinovite to your dog’s food.
  • Add a little water an stir.

With daily use, Dinovite is claimed to clear up most signs of nutritional deficiency within 90 days.

Dinovite Products

Dinovite’s original powder formula is available in 5 different sizes for dogs, and 1 size for cats. Before placing your order, we’d highly recommend reading through the supplement’s Choosing a Great Dog Food page, which can help ensure you’re giving your pet what they need to be healthy. You can also contact one of Dinovite’s Nutrition Coaches during business hours if you’d prefer live assistance.

In addition to the powdered formula, Dinovite also manufactures Lickochops and Supromega, which are Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acid supplements intended to give your dog healthy skin and a full, shiny coat. If your dog is finicky, Dinovite recommends Lickochops, and Supromega if your dog suffers from itchiness.

In addition, Dinovite’s Nubonabs treats (freeze dried beef for dogs, salmon and chicken for cats) are claimed to be a healthy way of rewarding your four-legged friend, but without the preservatives, corn, wheat, fillers and other chemicals found in most other treats. And finally, Dogosuds, Dinovite’s dog shampoo, is claimed to gently rinse away without leaving behind residue on your dog’s coat, or causing itchiness. These shampoos are available in unscented, peppermint tea tree, lavender, and essential oil blend scents.

Dinovite Pricing & Refund Policy

Dinovite’s products are priced as follows:

  • Dinovite for Dogs: $24.99 to $199.99
  • Dinovite for Cats: $49.99
  • Treats: $2.99
  • Supplements: $8.99 to $24.99
  • Shampoos: $9.49

Depending on the product you choose, you order may include free items such as treats. You’ll also be able to purchase related products when checking out, often at a discount.

All Dinovite products are shipped via UPS Standard Ground, and are claimed to reflect the same amount the company is charged.

Dinovite products come with a 90-day satisfaction guarantee, less S&H charges, which only applies to your first Dinovite purchase. Important: You’ll need to keep your original box and ship it back to the manufacturer in order to receive a refund.

In order to begin the refund process, you’ll need to contact customer service at 859-428-1000.

What Do Other Consumers Have to Say About Dinovite?

According to online customer reviews found on websites such as DogFoodAdvisor.com, DogVitaminReviews.com, Community.Dog.com, and many others, Dinovite products appear to have a primarily positive reputation. This includes common compliments such as great customer service/helpful coaches, that they work to clear up skin conditions, regardless of where they’re located (e.g. coat, ears, etc.), and that they help improve your pet’s smell.

However, some of the most common complaints cited failure to make a difference in animal’s coat or overall health (a couple reviewers claimed that their pets’ health got worse after using the supplement), high price, allergic reactions (we’ll talk more about this in a moment), and that Dinovite doesn’t necessarily contain anything exceptional to justify its high price.

Note: Keep in mind that although Dinovite’s powdered supplement doesn’t need to be refrigerated, we read about more than one instance of pest infestation (usually worms), so it’s important to keep the lid closed tightly at all times.

Finally, Dinovite, based out of Crittenden, KY, has been in business since 2001, and holds an A rating with the Better Business Bureau. The company has 10 closed complaints, many of which appear to reference difficulties processing returns. However, the company seems to be quick to respond to complaints (outside the BBB as well) and to come up with an agreeable solution.

Can Dinovite Help Your Dog or Cat Be Happier & Healthier?

If you’re looking to clear up your pet’s skin problems or are just looking to make sure they’re as healthy as possible, is Dinovite worth the high price? Perhaps, but consider the following before placing your order:

High Price & Shipping Costs

The most common complaint we encountered during our research related to Dinovite’s high price and steep S&H charges. However, if your pet is suffering from skin conditions or other health issues, a 90-day supply of Dinovite is likely much less expensive than even one trip to the vet.

With this said, in order to help you save on S&H costs, as well as to give your pet adequate time to experience results, the company recommends purchasing a 90-day supply of Dinovite, versus placing multiple smaller orders.

Dinovite’s Fat/Grain Content

Next, it’s very important to note that Dinovite is considered a high fat supplement (upward of 30%) , which could be problematic for some dogs, especially those with pancreatitis. Dinovite also contains grains, so if your pet is not used to grains or has an allergy to them, the supplement may not be ideal. Finally, Dinovite includes a high level of flax, which may upset some pets’ digestive systems.

Other Options to Consider

Keep in mind that there are numerous low-ingredient, high-quality natural foods and supplements available for your dog, many of which are priced lower than Dinovite. Because of this, you’ll want to thoroughly investigate all your options beforehand.

Bottom line:

Just like people, your dog or cat may react differently to the ingredients contained in Dinovite than others, while some may not experience any benefits at all. Dinovite does offer a 90-day refund policy (although you’ll be out S&H charges), which might help make your decision a little easier. However, you should always consult with your pet’s veterinarian prior to giving them any new supplement.

    Saved my cat

    I just want to thank y'all for making this product, Dinovite. Our Long Haired Russian Blue, Fuzz, is a geriatric cat, 18 years old. She gets seasonal allergy sores and threw up all the time. She was so skinny (3lbs) that the two steroid shots the vet gave her were so debilitating we couldn't put her through that again. I heard about Dinovite, and we thought, what could it hurt? She was already sick. This product changed her life.

    I have read a lot of testimonials saying their cats do not take to Dinovite. From the first time we put it in her bowl, a little Lickochops, organic dry food (she can't eat wet, or she immediately vomits, we tried the Dinovite with it, to no avail), and she LOVED it. Scoop with a drizzle of Super Omega, dry food on top, drizzle of Lickochops, and she is in heaven. She gained weight (5 lbs now!), had less shedding, less vomiting, and no sores. Overall, a healthy 18-year-old cat!

    We ran out of Dinovite last month (bad cat parents), and for the days before arrival, Fuzz literally threw her food out of the bowl looking for her Dinovite. We still had Super Omega and Lickochops, so we thought we could fool her. Alas, she lost weight, hairballs, vomiting, lethargy, and "I hate you looks." The minute she got her Dinovite back, the food bowl GONE!

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

  • Worked very well

    My Shih Tzu was losing all of her hair and losing weight. Very concerned, I took her to the vet, which put her on prescription dog food. She was on this prescription food for several months, and she is still losing weight and almost all of her hair. Her tail looked like a string. Then a friend recommended Dinovite, so I thought I might as well try it, as nothing else was working. I thought I might lose my little dog since she was getting so skinny and hairless.

    After about three weeks on Dinovite, her hair started growing. I was pleasantly surprised, and now she has been on Dinovite for about four months. She has gained all of her weight back, and hair is growing back in very nicely. She is full of energy now and looks like a different dog. The vet could not come up with a solution to her problem, but Dinovite has helped tremendously.

    I highly recommend this product, based on my experience.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Yes it DOES work!

    I do not understand the negative reviews. I guess some dogs are just very picky.

    We ordered Dinovite along with Lickochops some time ago. The two combined have been a Godsend to our senior fur baby. Katypage was adopted/rescued four years ago. She came to us with severe ear infections, skin disease, allergies, matted fur, and just pitiful. She is a mini schnauzer. I cleaned her up, shaved her hair, would put oils on her skin but nothing got rid of the smell, kept her from chewing her paws, and her ears stayed infected even with antibiotics.

    I was skeptical about another "product" saying it would fix things but I figured she was worth the investment. After one week, the odor from her skin was gone. After two to three weeks, the constant chewing and scratching stopped, and after a month, her skin and coat are very healthy, and now after two months, I'm only maintaining healthy ears (cleaning them one time a week). She even jumps on the sofa now! That was the most pleasant surprise! She is between 12-14 years of age and one day she scared me when she jumped up next to me on the sofa!

    Thank you Dinovite for living up to the "hype" and doing all that you say you will do. If you have a picky eater, try mixing it with a little wet and dry food. I do believe the Lickochops helps as well with picky eaters. The oils are great for the skin/coat, and the flavor is something dogs crave. I know it may not work for everyone, but it DID and IS working for us!

    Thank you Dinovite for giving me MORE quality time with my fur baby!

    Cleared up my pug's skin, she was starting to get that black skin on her belly, which I have seen on others. I was just about to re-order when I could not believe the reviews I see. Although, I feed her baked chicken, shredded and infused with Dinovite every day.

    Dinovite for large dogs

    • Iowa,
    • Jul 24, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I would never use this product again. My dog refused to eat it for ten days! He even got into the garbage, which he never did before, probably because he was starving! So I then tried hiding it in peanut butter bread. And guess what? It still did not do a thing. So I requested a refund. Not only did I have to pay the return postage, I also have to wait 30 days for my refund. What a waste of 100 bucks!

    I have a Maltese that was licking her paws constantly. I put some this on her food, and she instantly stopped the licking. I am very pleased with this product. I am concerned about the liver comment, and I will contact my vet and ask, but I have to tell you it's a miracle if you ask me.

    Garbage

    • Santa Clara, CA,
    • Jul 7, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    It's equivalent to garbage. I tossed the box in the garbage after a week. Read the reviews about the hassle of returning their products. I can't believe this company is still around. Reviews on their websites have to be approved by them; as such all reviews on its site are positive with a few negatives reviews that do not impact readers opinion. An example of a negative review; "product fix not help." Overall; it's no good.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Dinovite powder

    I have used the Dinovite powder on my dog's food now for about a month. I have a puggle (eight years old), a Chihuahua (seven years old), and a Chi-Jack Russell mix (one year old).

    My Chihuahua has had skin issues since eight weeks old. I have paid hundreds of dollars in vet bills; he's had deep cleaning of the ears, testing for yeast, everything, and they give me a salve that never works and send us home. He is now seven years old. Last night I noticed his crusty ears are soft and supple, and his hair that was missing from scratching has grown back. The paws are not red, and hair is growing back there. The only patches he has left is on his chin and chest.

    Not only is he happier, he plays like he did at eight weeks old. My two older boys are playing and running like puppies again. It's unbelievable the change in my fur babies. Plus, none of them will eat their food until I put the Dinovite powder in it.

    You have a lifetime customer for sure!

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Not for picky eaters/expensive and difficult to return

    • Los Angeles, CA,

    My Dobermans turned their noses up and wouldn't eat it in their food. Even the puppy, who eats anything, wouldn't touch it.

    The site is difficult to navigate, and they made it difficult to return. I have to pay return shipping. Let's see if they give me my money back.

      There is only one size for $75.00. The return shipping cost is $23.00. They gave me the $75.00 back and not the shipping charges. Total ripoff.

    Not sure it helps

    • Florida,
    • Apr 10, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    Our 11-year-old Golden Retriever started looking weak; excessive hair loss, lethargic, noticeable weight loss, hot spots, and gooey eyes. The vet put her on antibiotics and steroids.

    She got better for a while, and then we started on Dinovite. She seemed to respond but wouldn't eat it. I cook whole organic chickens, carrots, sweet potatoes and broccoli and mix with her dry food and Dinovite. What we noticed was a "phlegm" in her stools that almost looked like intestinal tissue. It came and went and she began to regress.

    Three weeks ago we stopped the Dinovite after she had a major accident in the house. EVERYWHERE! I began to give her half a teaspoon of virgin organic coconut oil with each meal and cut back on the total food intake. She looks AMAZING! Her weight has increased noticeably. Her coat looks good, there are no hot spots, and she wants to play all the time. Try coconut oil. So inexpensive and we use it ourselves.

    I can't say anything negative about Dinovite, but this seems to be working. Will keep you posted.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
