I have always ordered my Proviable from Amazon. In June, I ordered an 80 count package of Proviable Capsules - the third party vender was Pets Care Centers. I received an e-mail from Amazon this morning informing me that the Proviable I got from this third-party vendor could very well be counterfeit. They refunded the money I had paid for it.
I happened to have another box of Proviable capsules I quickly ordered in July while we were traveling and I needed some Clancy when he got sick. This order was filled by Amazon.com Services, Inc.
I compared the two boxes and the only difference I could find was a slightly different shading in some of the pink markings AND on the bottom of the counterfeit box, the bar code was glued on and the 'real' box the bar code was embedded. I do not know if this is how one could tell the counterfeit from the real or if it is a coincidence. But......
Just wanted to give you a heads up to check your boxes if you ordered from Amazon. I do have to thank AMAZON for notifying and refunding me. I never would have known - if it didn't work, I would have assumed my doodle needed a stronger probiotic.
We are leaving again tomorrow and I will buy plain unflavored yogurt and order it again -- probably not from Amazon though because I don't want to take the chance.
Now if only I'd get my Amazon refund for the shirt that didn't fit. :-}
