    My pair of dogs get ear infections pretty darn often. I'm almost certain it's something in the house, as I've switched foods multiple times and the best one we've found cleared up everything but their icky ears. While I'm trying to figure out and put a stop to the source of this, I've been giving them rooster booster in just about every other bowl of water I set out. It's seeming to make a little difference though it might be my imagination. Could the rooster booster be helping? Will it hurt them? Can it hurt my cats who drink from the same bowl?

    It depends on which booster you use, hurting wise. I am not sure on helping though, I will look into it.

    It could be correcting a vitamin deficiency, in which case, it could be building their immunity, and helping their overall skin condition. IMO, it will not hurt them, unless you notice that they start crowing in the early morning. IMO, vitamins are vitamins. And while some formulations may be different, , and the needs be somewhat different between species, I doubt that any harm can come from using the same formulation for different species. Case in point: Poultry and Goat Nutri-Drench are similar enough that either could be used for chicks.

    I'm switching between the orange save a chick and the powdered rooster booster, I read the back and nothing stood out as dangerous to my fur babies, but feather babies have different needs so I began to doubt myself
