- Hello, Recently I purchased some of your products for my pets and I am
very pleased with the results. I have been using the Bio Coat for some
time on my little dog who had very coarse hair but no allergies or such
problems. He did have a problem with constipation and since I have
ordered and started giving him a scoop of the pet laxative every day in
addition to the biotin that is also resolved. His hair coat is so
unbelievably soft and smooth I can't stop petting him! Its absolutely
luxurious feeling now! Even the veterinarian who sees him once a month
noted the improvement in his hair coat. He is an older fellow who has
weak hind legs and I presume this is from arthritis but he then started
having a very hard time passing his stool, I guess his entire hind end
is weak, and seeing him straining and pushing so hard with very little
and sometimes no results I felt I would try the gentlest laxative I
could get for him, one that could not have stimulants and the nickers
pet laxative [Gentle Lax-A-Pet] fit the requirements. I wouldn't give him any thing with
stimulants fearing that would add stomach cramps to his discomforts. He
now has a bowl movement every day with no pushing or other discomforts
and seems much happier in this regard too. To watch this little dog play
with his young cat friend/sibling does my heart good! His joy is
evident and the improvement in how he can move and jump around when
playing with her is remarkable. I have nothing but praise for your
products and they have all worked much faster than I ever would have
anticipated. ..........I have already
ordered another bottle of the bio coat for my own cats and dog and I
also ordered a bottle for my sisters dog Leo a yellow Labrador retriever
who is chewing his feet without end. I think the Biocoat will really
help him too. I just want others pets to have the benefit like mine did
when I found out about your products! Thank you very much and please
keep making those wonderful quality of life improving supplements

- I have four dogs and one cat....Biocoat does amazing things to their
coats! I feed them high quality food and vitamins, but nothing compares
to this product. And, they LOVE it! Although it doesn't claim to be a
flea repellent, I believe it does, with five animals a flea infestation
could happen easily, but not while using this product. Highly

- I received a sample of BioCoat at
the 'meet the breed' pet show this past summer in nyc. My smooth coat
dachshund had a terrible itching/scratching problem especially on his
four paws. I started him on weekly baths and sprays of medaluca oil. It
didn't work. His doctor said it was just a dry coat and gave him an
oatmeal conditioning spray. It really didn't help him either. When I
started giving him the BioCoat I noticed the difference. It took about 4
weeks but it worked. He's down to scratching about once a week. I'm
hoping it will be completely stamped out within the next month, if not,
one 2 minute episode a week is tolerable. My dachshund and I are glad I
nyc--dec 9 2010
I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart..My poor
little Chihuahua Coco Chanel, suffered ...I would always see her
nibbling at her front paws...I brought her to 3 different Vets..
One said it was a nervous disorder , One didn't know and the other
gave me a cream thinking it was just an irritation...Nothing helped
When you gave me a sample of the Bio Coat, I took it thinking it
wouldn't help...However, I did try it, and just 3 days later I'm yet
to see her nibbling at her paws..
This REALLY WORKS..
Thank you so much

just wanted to tell you how pleased we are with using Bio-Coat for our
dog. Teddy has had problems biting and scratching every morning since
he was 8 weeks old. I've changed his diet numerous times and limited
his intake of corn, wheat, etc. With adding Bio-Coat to his food for a
little over a week, he has stopped scratching and biting! Wonderful.
After seeing your web site I had to tell you my story.........or should
I say Kilo's story. Kilo was my first Austrian Cattle Dog............I
loved her to death. She was about 3 years old when she started with
allergies. Kilo was allergic to everything...........including herself
!!!!!!! The vet I was using at the time made up a serum to give her.
That meant 2 shots a week. This went on for 2 years with minimal
results. Kilo would rub her back against the chain link fencing until
her back bled. She couldn't be petted ..........this would send her
into spasms. I was seriously thinking of having her put to
sleep...............she was just so miserable. This was NOT an easy
decision to make. While meeting with some friends one
afternoon..........Kilo's problems came up, my friend asked if I had
tired "Itch Ex" (Nickers' product Bio-Coat).........I had no idea what
she was talking about. Well.........long story short, Susan gave me her
bottle of "Itch Ex" (Bio-Coat) and Kilo was started on the product. I
was hopeful but, not looking for anything great to happen. In 2 weeks
new hair was growing ( Did I mention her hair coat was like broom straw
) her skin was healing ....the redness gone AND I COULD PET HER
!!!!!!!!!!!!. Kilo stayed on "Itch Ex" (Bio-Coat) the rest of her life.
Kilo became a American Champion, had a herding title and an obedience
title as well as a Canine Good Citizen title. I was able to breed her 2
times. The result of those breeding were more Champions. My Kilo passed
away on Aug. 10, 2000 at the age of almost 15, her birthday ......Sept.
8, 1985. I'm sending you a picture of Kilo as well. Thank you for your
products !!!!!!!!! I might add my miniature horses are on Gen-A-Coat.

used Gen-a-coat for 3 yrs on my two palominos. Unbelievable color and
shine results on ANY shade palomino.Summer coats have a shimmering
"metallic fabric" look and winter coats are downy and soft like baby
chicks.Can't say enough.

had a black lab years ago, the vet thought she was allergic to fleas.
We would bathe her weekly with special shampoo, with no improvement.
Then i was reading my horse magazine one day and saw in big letters on
the page "Does your dog itch?" I kept reading. I showed that to my mom,
we ordered a jar of Itch-Ex for my dog. Not long after feeding that to
her, her coat got better and she didn't itch any more, no more bathing!
Thanks for such a great product, I am considering Gen A Horse for both
my horses now.

have a mutt who has suffered from terrible skin allergies for years
with no relief. She was miserable. The vets have tried steroids,
special foods and more expensive tests. After 2 weeks on the Bio-Coat
the itching stopped and the hair grew back. She is a happy dog!!

two cats (very finiky!) just love Bio-Coat. They like it better than
any treats and eat it right of my hand. Their coats are beautiful,
exactly like you say - "show quality". I feed them Vite-E-Pet, too,
because they sure need antioxidants and I want them to live long,
healthy life. So, thank you for those wonderful products!

order of your Gen-A-Horse is on it's way. I look forward to trying this
product. My thoroughbred/sport horse mare has had problem hooves all
her life. She has been on just straight Biotin and it seems to have
helped. Your product with the added supplements should continue to do
wonders for her. I'll keep you informed on her progress.

received the pkg of 6 bottles of SPRINKLES. Puffy was sooooooooooo
glad. He sniffed the box, and immediately started licking it, even
before it was opened. After I opened it, I held out one of the bottles,
and he just licked and licked. I threw it on the floor, and he played
and licked. SO I then put some in his food dish - need I say more?!?!?
Thanks for a great product.

of all I have a sister who is on dialysis and she has lost majority of
her hair during the treatment. Secondly, I have severely dry skin and
hair. My hair will grows but then it'll start breaking. For the last 4
weeks we both started taking a Biotin vitamin supplement but I am
always looking for something better that's going to work in our behalf.
I have already called and left a message so I'll be looking for your
brochure in the mail...soon! Thanks, Ms D.

Bio-coat is the most wonderful product. A friend of mine had a dog that
had lost her hair and was covered with scabs from scratching so much.
She also had a horrible smell. He had her to the vet many times in
order to get some relief for her and nothing was working. We saw your
product Itch-ex in a catalog. He ordered it. After about a month her
hair started coming back and the skin healed. She regained her full
thick coat and quit scratching. She smells much better too. That dog is
now 9 years old and she was on the Bio-coat(Itch-ex) for about two
years when she was a young dog. She has a beautiful coat and has not
had any more problems. Thanks so much.

just wanted to let you know, that your horse products are great!! I
have been using Gen-a-Coat on my quarter horse gelding due to his mane
being so short. Now his mane is about 4 inches long and still growing.
It's great to see him finally growing some hair (ha!) Even his forelock
is growing, instead of looking like a fuzz ball. I am letting all my
friends know. After all when you find a product that works and that has
no harmful things in it. the best thing to do is to pass it on. God
Bless and Thanks

used Gen-A-Horse years ago for a two year old that had terrible feet.
It is the most fantastic product I ever used. His feed grew and
widdened out. This product is no longer sold in Canada which is a loss
for Canadians. I recently purchased a new stallion that has brittle
feet due to his never being turned out. His feet are narrow and crack
easily. I plan to purchase more of this remarkable product as soon as I

in my college days, when my friends and I lived on Ramen, Tombstone
pizzas and popcorn, a woman in my dorm introduced us to nutritional
yeast (to sprinkle on popcorn). We were addicts of the stuff within a
week. I haven't had it since then, but found your site tonight and
thought I'd pick up some. I'm looking forward to seeing if it's as good
on popcorn as I remember . . .

your site from Yahoo looking for Biotin. I Have had trouble finding a
Biotin supplement that my 20 year old foundered horse likes - I'll try
yours. Keeping shoes on him for more than few days at a time is a
nightmare. Right now I'm using an EasyBoot to protect his bad foot.
Also wanted much more than just 100 mg/pound which is what other Biotin
supplements have. I'm anxious to see the results.

January of 1999, I began marketing a product for the Equine Industry.
As it directly competes with one of the Nicker's products, I won't
advertise it here. I did need to fill out my product line to present to
stores, and I knew that Nickers' philosophy of natural, quality
concentrated products was what I needed to match my ideals, principles,
and ethics. I studied the products and COMPARED THE LABELS with dozens
of other brands. I was astounded to learn that we were spending
hundreds of dollars more, per year, per horse, for buckets of useless
filler. More importantly, I began giving our 2 half-arabs; Gen-A-Horse,
Gen-A-Coat, and Gen-A-Vite. I needed to see results if I was going to
represent these products to my friends and to the local feed and grain
stores. (We all know the horse community grapevine can be very
opinionated and quick to judge). My friends, I am so happy with the
results that we see, and the comments that we are getting from other
horse owners, our farrier, and our Veterinarian that I am absolutley
giddy. Our farrier offered these comments. "Both of these horses have
excellent hooves. What are you doing different?" Our Vet made this
comment. " That biotin supplement you were telling me about sure is
working well. These horses look great. No scruff, no dandruff, and Andy
hasn't rubbed her mane off this winter. You didn't spray these horses
with show sheen have you?" (No, I just quickly brushed them before you
came here Dr.Ira). Our "girls" look great and feel great. Thank you
NICKERS for these wonderful products. I am proud to represent such a
great Company to West Michigan. And by the way; our 27 year old
Welsh-Arab pony still does 7 miles of trail in under one hour.

11 year old Labrador/Gt Dane mix has arthritis plus an under performing
thryroid. I can't remember when I started using Bio-Coat but it has
been a number of years. His arthritis worsened about a year ago so I
took him to the vet. She recommended that I increase his does from one
capfull twice a day to three capfuls twice a day. But no change in
buffered aspirin - two 325 m.g. tablets in the morning. Well, he
rebounded in about a month and has been running and playing just like
his old self ever since. Now the problem is I'm getting older and he is
getting younger! Similarly my 11 year beagle developed skin cysts that
seep and bled. I began her on a daily dose of 1 capfull of Bio-coat.
The existing cysts healed markedly and within several months no longer
seeped or bled. While a cyst does form from time to time it never
advances beyond a small spongy pebble under the skin. Thank you for

using Gen-A-Horse last year. My horse was driving the farrier crazy,
weak hooves and couldn't hold a shoe. We let him go barefoot out of
desperation - "Give him 3 months and see if there is any hoof to nail
to!". Within 6 wks we got a shoe on and it held!! Within 3 months tha
farrier said it was the best he had ever seen his feet. After that he
even went 9 wks between resets, before I had to rest every 4 wks. Ran
out of product last week while trying to find a local vendor. Reordered
thru VAlley Vet. Yesterday, I noticed the hoof was breaking and he had
stepped on a nail and the shoe was loose after only 4 wks after
shoeing! Thank goodness the product arrived today!!

1987 I was reading one of my horse magazines and I came across an ad
for a product that said it could help dogs with their itchy skin, dull
coats & weak hindquarters. Well, my husband & I had a handsome
male Golden Retriever named Magnum. Magnum definitely had "weak
hindquarters". At first I looked at the ad with my first thought
being...who could believe such a thing - that there was a product that
could stop a dog from itching like crazy and give him strong
hindquarters too! Too strange...and on top of that the product was
named "Itch-Ex". My next thought was.... What if it worked?! At that
very time my husband & I had become a bit concerned about Magnum's
"weak hindquarters" - he was a young dog about 7 mos old. Our Vet
didn't have any solution but agreed maybe increasing feed for more
strength while increasing exercise at the same time. So we had Magnum
on a regimen of exercise about 3 times a day to run him up and down the
stairs to the 2nd floor in our house. We quickly realized we were out
of shape and figured....Great!...this will help us while we are helping
Magnum at the same time. Nothing changed in his hindquarters though we
continued to run up & down the stairs hoping for improvement. So,
we decided to buy the Itch-Ex and see what happened. Once we got it we
stopped all exercise - no more running up & down the stairs over
and over again - we wanted to see what the Itch-Ex would do on its own.
Within 5 days Magnum showed a tremendous change in his hindquarters -
he had a strength he had never had before - even we thought it seemed
too soon but it was Very apparent - the improvement was remarkable.
Within a few weeks it wasn't even an issue anymore. Over the years I
have had many, many successes with my own animals over the last 12
years and those of others where I demanded friends try it for their
animals too. Oh...one last story...I'll make it quick. Shortly after
Magnum's success I was at our vet's practice one day when he happened
to mention that they had a young West Highland White Terrier - named
"Nellie" - that had been given up by her owners and left with the
Veterinarian. They said they wanted a dog for the family and she was
only a Huge expense and a Problem and the Vet could put her to sleep or
whatever he wanted to do because they decided enough was enough. The
story was Nellie had severe eczema that caused her to rip out all but a
few hairs of her coat which then left her draining and bleeding and
covered with scabs and from there she would rip off her skin. They
spent what they considered beyond a fortune and for what was only a
losing battle. Steroids, antibiotics, special ointments, special
bathing, creams, salves, tranquilizers, nothing was working!! The Vet
showed me this little pathetic pup and said that he was going to give
her 15-30 more days but was quite sure he would "have to put her down"
because no matter what he did she remained this unsolvable case even
with consulting Universities & other Vets. I asked him that if I
donated a bottle of Itch-Ex would he give it to her in a manner that I
would note down for him??? He said he had nothing to lose but did not
expect any change.....but sure..he'd give it to her. Within a week she
showed Dramatic Improvement!!! In 30-45 days she was off to a new home
with one of the staff who worked at the hospital without any further
eczema problem. So...now called Bio-Coat...an incredible product it
truly is. Thanks for all you've done and keep doing.

did use your product - genahorse. I must say that the results in our
mare's hooves were simply surprising. Our vet, who happens to be a very

of new hooves - to the good use of your product. The amount of biotin
in it surpasses any other I have seen. Congratulations.

been using your Biotin product for about 5 months (4 scoops a day) as
one of the nutritional supplements which I began, to try to reverse the
effects of diabetic neuropathy (numbness and tingling in my feet). The
other evening I was standing b y a table where three girls of high
school or college age were selling cookies for a charitable cause. As I
was talking to them, one of them suddenly said to me, "You have
beautiful skin!" I was completely astounded and realized it must be a
result of the Biotin. I'm 77 years old and have never had anyone
comment on my skin before. I thought you would appreciate hearing this
testimonial, which I offer gratefully.
