Great Stuff!

I have a finicky senior cat. She seemed to be losing weight, so I got this for her. She doesn't seem to care for the taste, but she doesn't despise it. It's the perfect consistency- it's very easy to give her (I just wipe it off my finger, near the corner of her mouth and she licks it off, looking unpleased, but at least it works!). It sticks perfectly on her mouth because of the way that it is. I took her into the vet recently and she ended up on a temporary oral medication. Giving her pills has always been very difficult because I know she can taste it, and fights it- but I found a way to easily give her a pill (by mixing a crushed pill, this vitamin paste, puree cat treat, and water) with a children's medicine syringe. She doesn't seem to mind the taste at all. I'm super glad to have this for exactly that purpose- it seems to cover up the taste of medicine.

Cat loves it!

We have a cat that recently started losing weight. The Vet recommended this. I squirt a guestimate out in a bowl and put some cat food meat with it, mix it up together and my cat eats every bite! I will add that the first time I gave it I did measure it out exactly, so I am pretty close with my guess now. Our cat gets additional food again later in the day with only meat and dry food. This seems to really help him and stimulates his appetite. In looks it reminds me of a dark colored honey.

chihuahua mini

I got my chihuahua she was only 5.5 weeks old cause her mother’s milk went dry. I took her to the vet the next day and she only weighed 11 ozs. Too little for even puppy shots. They gave me a tube of this and she loves it. She was listless before but with the addition of puppy milk & puppy food (mix together) and the nutri-cal she gained enough (up to 1lb) to get her first puppy shot in 8 days. She is now 9 weeks old and she is healthy, full of energy, playful, and so loving. I have continued giving her just a few drops right from the tube every day. I really think this product saved her life. I would recommend this product to puppy owners and cat owners everywhere.

Disappointed

I'd love to have said great things about this product. But, once it arrived today I immediately gave my cat some and he walked away after smelling it. So disappointed!

Finicky Cat

My owner is trying to get the meat back on my bones since I have a Thyroid condition. I do not like the taste of this. However, she now uses it to glue the pill on her finger so she can get it farther back in my throat!

Baby loves it!!!

The vet recommended this for two kittens l gave away, and thought it would be good for the one l had left. He was a sickly kitten when born, so thought this might help him. He is still underweight and small, but he loves his treats. He jumps up on my table and gives me nose kisses and sits so pretty while he waits for me to bring out the tube and give him a dollop. He has gained a little bit, but still has a long way to go. And he is working on it!

Okay, but…

This stuff is okay, my 8 week old kitten who only weighs 1 pound seems to like it, but I don’t know how the heck I’m supposed to measure this out. It is way too hard to measure, for those of us who have a pet that weighs less than 10 pounds. I mean, how do you measure 1 1/2 teaspoon divided by 10? I’ve figured out that it equals approximately less than 1/4 teaspoon, but more than 1/8 teaspoon, but even when you figure that out, how are you supposed to dose it correctly? Measuring spoons wouldn’t work cause that’s not very accurate, and you can’t use syringes or droppers, cause this stuff is so thick and gooey, good luck with that, it’s impossible. Trust me, I’ve tried. There needs to be some sort of measuring chart on the tube for pets who weigh less than 10 lbs. And a dosing cup with the tube. Way too difficult.

Essential for Sick Cats Refusing to Eat

This should be in every cat owner's cat first aid kit. if you have a kitty who is sick and not eating, or who is not eating enough, this provides needed energy and often spurs them on to eat. It can be messy but well worth it. Put dabs on your finger and put on the roof of the cat's mouth. Some cats will free feed it. You can syringe it in as well. This has been a real-life saver at times.

Probably good, but cat did not like

This is probably a great product, but when I put it in my senior cat's food he refused to eat his food which defeats the whole purpose of trying to get him to gain weight. I had to stop giving it to him because I needed him to eat his food.

OldLadyCat

I have been giving this to my 19 year old cat and she really enjoys it. Licks it off the top of her food. Now she is actually eating better and seems to be a tad more frisky.
