Expiration Date:Expiration Date
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

My 12-year-old dog started vomiting a few hours after eating. My vet suggested changing her food which I did several times. She would seem to get better and then after a week or two the vomitting started up again. The food always looked undigested even after 4-5 hours. My vet chalked it up to "old dogs just have trouble digesting". I thought why not try a digestive aid with the prebiotics/probiots like people do. I tried products from the pet store and another one from the internet without success. By chance I bought Ark Naturals Gentle Digest and my old girl has not lost a meal since. I open one capsule a day in her morning meal and that's it. No matter what I feed her, she keeps it down and is thriving. She had begun to lose fur and it has grown back. We spent over a year trying to figure this out and I am trilled with the results using this great product. My Meg will never be without it.

"Nanna", my 18 month-old Anatolian Shepherd Dog female was born premature and as such has a somewhat 'delicate' tummy. She had sporadic bouts of diarrhea. Very nasty indeed! After much research my dad read-up on "ARK NATURALS Gentle Digest". What a Godsend! I split the capsule and sprinkle the powder over her (twice daily) meals as she won't swallow a capsule or tablet. NO MORE ACCIDENTS IN THE HOUSE since commencing the treatment at about twelve weeks old.

I have been feeding my dog with this product for almost 2 years. Didn't see significant improvement in her ear infection. Perhaps I think maybe need to try for much longer? But what makes me disappointed this time is I purchased 4 bottles and all 4 bottles came spoiled. The capsules had turned brown from the usual off white colour. And when I opened the safety seal, there is a popping gas sound. Which means some chemical reaction had already occurred In the bottle. Thus the capsules changed colour. Tried emailing to gentle digest to ask about the colour change. It has been more than a week and I'm not getting a reply. Just wasted money on 4 bottles and all I get was disappointment.

My 12 years old cat has been struggeling with a sensitive stomach, having a cronic diarreah. This is the first time I try probiotics and it really seems to work. I must tell I at the same time started giving her special food treating this, but I have at the same time been giving her the old "bad" food and it still have not went all bad again with the loose stools.I open the capsule and blend it into the vet food. I also let her lick the spoon I blended it with, to make sure she gets all of it. She must either love the taste or not reccognizw it, cause she lick empty the bowl each time. And this cat is CHOOSY! My very best reccommendations!
