Feed one capsule per day for every 10kg of your pet’s weight. A 20kg dog would need 2 capsules per day. You may feed the capsules whole, often with a treat, or you may open them and sprinkle the tasteless white powder onto or into your pet’s food. Once or twice a day  - it will make no difference.

You should start to see changes after a couple of weeks. Bear in mind that both hair and nail are “dead” tissues and so you must give time for the stronger hair, and nail especially, to grow from the inside out.

Continue treatment for as long as you require. It may be possible to suspend or cut back once positive results  are established.

Feeding BiotinMax

The active ingredient responsible for Biotin-max’s effect is Vitamin H (d-biotin) pharmacuetical grade 99% pure. Each capsule contains 5000 micrograms (5mg).

Biotin is a safe water soluble vitamin, there are no known adverse side effects. Excess vitamin is excreted in the urine and does not accumulate in the body. It is safe for continued long term use if required.

Other ingredients are: vegetable gelatin(capsule), dicalcium phosphate and Maltodextrin (carriers for biotin), magnesium stearate and silicon dioxide (to aid powder flow and lubrication)

Biotin is a vitamin (usually called Vitamin H or Vitamin B8) that your dog cannot manufacture for itself. Therefore your dog must obtain the minute quantities required from the diet or possibly from the micro-organisms in the gut.

Usually we feed additional vitamins in order to counteract a deficit, but in the case of Biotin, there is virtually always sufficient within the dog’s system for everyday needs.

However scientific research has confirmed that when Biotin is present in many times it’s normal concentration, something very unusual happens; - hair and nail growth is substantially accelerated!

Science Behind  Biotin for Dogs

Biotin max delivers precisely the increased amount of biotin specified in clinical trials

D-Biotin is clinically proven to accelerate the production of the proteins that hair and claws are made from - promoting noticeable increased growth. Biotin-max for dogs provides the same therapeutic dose used in scientific trials to guarantee the maximum result for you and your pet.

In a collaborative study with small-animal veterinary surgeons, dogs with fur and skin conditions were treated with biotin (approximately 5 mg biotin/10 kg body weight/day) for 3 to 5 weeks.

In total 119 cases could be treated which were reported to show symptoms such as dull coat, brittle hair, loss of hair, scaly skin, pruritus or dermatitis. Cases requiring other treatments with e.g. glucocorticoids, were excluded from the study.

In 60% of the cases all symptoms were reported to be cured after the biotin treatment and in a further 31% an improvement was noted; in only 9% no effect was recorded.

All breeds responded but to a variable extent: e.g. in Poodles the response was lower (no response in 6 out of 11 cases) than in Alsatians where all improved and 14 out of 29 were completely cured.

The results confirm the favourable effect of biotin for treatment of fur and skin conditions in dogs

Clinical Evidence for Biotin in Dogs

Biotin-max for dogs will help your dog to grow a healthy, shiny coat and strong, healthy nails


When hair loss occurs in dogs, it can be a time of concern and apprehension for you, the owner. The reasons for hair loss can be difficult to identify, creating even more worry for you. Additional symptoms such as soreness and inflammation can also be painful and distressing for your dog. If you are concerned about irregular amounts of hair loss or notice unusual patterns of loss, it is important that a diagnosis be made as soon as possible.

Once the underlying causes are eliminated (albeit often impractical) or at least being treated, then Biotin-max Supplement will accelerate hair and nail re-growth.
