A:  Effectiveness will not change with long-term use however the condition symptoms for which the product is being fed may alter with time and may give the impression that the product is no longer working.

A: 
Generally very palatable however introduce very gradually with fussy feeders or use the Gold solutions which can be orally syringed.
