Looking at the ingredients, it looks like a lot of it is designed to supplement forms of vitamin B, right? For example, from the ingredients list, choline, niacinimide, thiamin, riboflavin, pyridoxine, dexpanthenol, and B12 are in the B-complex family.
I wonder if one could get similar results with a b-complex supplement?
I ask because I've noticed that an inexpensive B-Complex supplement seems to add some sparkle to "foggy" senior dogs. I started it based on the recommendation on Dr. Clemmons' site for healthy (non-DM) dogs - B-Complex 50 (I used one that includes B12, as not all do). It costs under $10 for a good one from a health food store.
Here's the potency listing for Cholodin

Here's the potency listing for Twinlab B-Complex 50 (selling for $7.59 on Vitacost):

Any thoughts on whether Cholodin is worth the extra cost (absorbability, peer reviewed studies with dogs, etc.)? Sometimes products have something special about them that justifies the cost (Dasaquin is a good example), and I wonder if this is one?
