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.

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.

    My dog has suffered all of his life from allergies. We have spent a fortune at the vet only to get mild relief for him.

    He scratches constantly, has bald spots everywhere and the smell he has had was sour and yeasty and pungent, and I had to bathe him every other day to keep the smell down...and he would destroy my carpets digging because he was miserable. We have been feeding him grain free for years too.

    A friend told me that her dog had the exact same issues and she tried the Dinovite and within a week her dog’s symptoms had vanished.

    My order arrived a week earlier than expected, which is awesome...and the dog loved it, and by the end of the first day, his scratching was already practically stopped! I purchased the liquid supplement because I felt like he would like it better. I may try the box next.

    This is on the first days and I am excited about the future and having my boy happy and healthy!

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

    Still waiting on refund

    • Florida,
    • Oct 29, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    Unfortunately, I was not able to use the product, my pet passed away two days before it arrived. I called Dinovite and they told me that I can get a full refund. They received it on October 15th. And still noncredit. They told me it can take 30 days for a refund. Hopefully it comes fast.

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

    Rip off

    An unconditional guarantee is just that...oh, but wait, there isn't any such thing. There is one guarantee on the package and another on the website. Please be cautious when doing business with this company.

    Costly lesson learned.

    Caused cats to projectile vomit; poor customer service

    • USA,
    • Oct 3, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    Dinovite for cats caused multiple of our cats to projectile vomit. This was more than a mere stomach upset. I was barely even giving them any, and they were still puking a lot and often. I don't know if it was a bad batch, or if they've changed something in their formula. It was ok a few years back - no issues. But now, it is the only thing that has changed in their diet. And it was no good.

    Because I used it years ago, they refused to honor their guarantee. The customer service representative was also sarcastic and snide. I don't know what happened to this company, but it is no good. Avoid them and choose a different/better product for your pets.

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

    Money back guarantee.

    Please make sure you read the money back guarantee carefully. Not as good a deal as Dinovite makes it seem. My dogs hated this and would go hungry instead of eating it. I tried every trick they suggested, and it did not help.

    Allergies helped

    • California,
    • Aug 8, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    Our dog is extremely allergic to most foods and many allergens in the environment. He had serious lesions all over his body that caused him to scratch all the time. Also, his health was questionable with lethargy and other problems that caused a lesser quality of life.

    We began cooking for him and supplementing with Dinovite and the results have been amazing. All of the lesions have disappeared, and his Vet says his skin has never looked better. He is energetic and acts more like a puppy than the older age he really is. We can't say all the good things have been because of Dinovite, but it certainly has played a huge part in his recovery and well being.

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

    Happy puppy

    • Senatobia, MS,
    • Jul 27, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I have a mixed breed Dachshund/Catahoula eight-month-old little girl who has been scratching and chewing for three months. She had large patches of hair missing off her sides and had chewed the hair off her back legs. The vet tried steroids, allergy medications, and skin scrapings and could not help her. I ordered Dinovite last week and she loves the stuff! I use the powder with the liquid fish oil (Supromega) and have no problems with her eating every bite. The best part is that she has not scratched or chewed for the past four days!

    Calmed his allergies

    • Texas,
    • Jun 28, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    It sure helped my dog! I rescued a hound dog off the side of a rural road. The vet wasn't sure of his age because his teeth were worn down from constantly chewing at himself. Poor thing was miserable all the time. Dinovite addressed his allergies and gave him complete relief!

    Didn't do anything for my dog

    My dog has been using the product for three months now and it has done nothing for him. He's still scratching, and he smells horrible, just like the smell of the Dinovite. The last few days we have stopped putting it in his food because we think the Dinovite is causing all his issues. He's on Blue Basics Grain Free dog food, so we know it isn't because of the food. We will not continue the Dinovite anytime in the future.

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

    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

    • Denver, CO,
    • Sep 5, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    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
