    "Bought on recommendation as one of my hens was pecking the other three's feathers relentlessly which was very distressing. Unfortunately, the Gentian violet has not solved the problem for my hens so it's back to the drawing board I'm afraid. Ps my girl's do look quite fetching with purple feathers!!"

    "Excellent.Worked over something several days. Nearly opted to have dog put down. Put then vet mentioned F10, they could not perscribe due to trials. Huge thank you for offering this product online. Forever grateful, I could not imagine putting a 6 yr old Shepherd down for this skin condition. Will recommend just like vet."
