Have been using it about 1.5 wk and it has helped significantly. Drainage is much less and the red color has diminished a lot also. Since it works from the inside out, I anticipate the problems will further decrease. No problem with taste. She is a toy poodle and I split the dosage for morning and evening. Couldn't tell the under eye drops did much though. Will continue using this product. Like that doesn't have artificial ingredients.
