I have an epileptic dog who unfortunately loses bladder and bowel control during Grand Mal seizures, and this product not only cleans the stains on my carpets but removes all trace of odour. It is also excellent as an odour-removing spray for general use on furniture and my bed, and is 100% safe for use with an epileptic pet - most other products not only do not clean but leave a horrid smell and many contain ingredients which trigger a seizure. I recommend this product to everyone who owns a pet!

I found that it needed more water than the quantities given, ie one cup soup blend to two cups of boiling water and more than the 2-3 minutes simmering stated. I had to top up with more boiling water and also simmer for at least 5 minutes, hence I have only given it four stars and not five. However, as a base with cooked chicken and/or pulses, plus some added seasoning and another few minutes simmering, the product provided some very tasty and filling meals. Good as a base and a definite "keeper" for my store-cupboard.

Having only recently discovered this wonderful product I am using it on so many more things and would not be without it now! Once you have tried it you I am sure you will think the same!

If my dog gets over-excited or cannot settle I give her one of these, and she calms down usually within about ten minutes. As she is epileptic it is very important that she does not get herself worked up. They also help calm her following a seizure. I checked with my Vet before ordering them and his comment was that it cannot do her any harm to try them so is worth trying them to see if they help. And they do.

I always keep some under my pillow in case I am woken by leg cramps, and just taking one pill is enough to enable me to go back to sleep. I have been recommending this product to anyone who asks for help with leg cramps.

For some months now my doctor has been prescribing different creams and ointments for horrible red, flaky and itchy patches on my lower legs, none of which helped. The last one was a steroid and after a day of using it the itching was worse. I do not think my doctor knew what the problem was even though I was sure it was psoriasis. So I bought this product hoping that something natural might work without causing side effects. It arrived just two days ago and already I can see the difference. No thick scaly skin, the flaking is easing off, and the irritation - which had been disturbing my sleep - has almost gone. The cream is absorbed by the skin very quickly so is not sticky. I have no hesitation in recommending this product and am now going to order 4 more tubes.

The best, and easiest way to cook these oats is in a small crockpot. I boiled 3 cups of water in a fast-boiling electric kettle, poured the water into a small [1.5 litre] crockpot and added 1 cup of oats. Set it on High for five minutes and then turned to Low and left it until I was ready. No need to watch it on the stove top and no need to stir either! The flavour and texture of these oats is just as I like and I am very pleased that I have found an easy way of cooking them.

I bought this as I need to cut my dog's pills in half. It could not cope with the large ones and was absolutely useless for the Phenobarbital, which was the main reason I bought it. She has to have 50mg three times a day and the pills are 100mg so each one has to be cut exactly in half. The splitter can not cope with small pills as they fall through the gap, so for anything smaller than an aspirin it is useless, and the Phenobarbital pills are small. The large pill just ended up in a number of small pieces instead of in half, and it was positioned perfectly. I have only given the product one star because I had to give it something.

These patches are extremely easy to use, do not have an over-powering odour, and do help with local pain. They are not pain-killers as such but do help and I will continue to purchase the product, which also has a non-allergenic sticky backing and can be used almost everywhere on the body where pain relief is required.

I microwaved the contents in a bowl for five minutes, stirred it and then added some flaked cooked fish to heat through for another two or three minutes. It was delicious and a very substantial and quick lunch. Definitely a store cupboard staple from now on!
