Takes time for kitty to like this, but now she eats it fondly

At first my senior cat rejected this. She regularly is fed Vetoquinol Laxatone which she loves, & I’m not sure if she was expecting the same flavor? The Laxatone is yummy maple & Nutri-Cal has more of a fish/flax aroma. She really needs the calories & nutrients though so I kept trying, & found when kitty was giving herself a tongue bath in the sun, if I went to her with the Nutri-Cal on my finger she would eat it, hooray! Now she even reaches out to get some before I’ve put it in front of her mouth. Success!!

Life Saver

We used this in the past for a number of Dogs. 1 in Mount Sinai, Long Island, NY. 1 in Fall River, MA. Brought both dogs nearly back to life. It's that good. So glad we found it again. Product is a God sent. Had 1 shipped to me in Mount Sinai and 1 shipped to my sister in Fall River. Thanks so much for carrying it and for the quick shipments.

Always on my shelf

I rescue older special needs dogs and nutri-cal is a great supplement when I have problems getting them to eat due to illness etc. I just lost one to cancer and she loved this so much I took it into the vet with us and it was her last “treat”. Highly recommend!

Good vitamins

What is a vitamins were recommended by veterinarian. It’s easy to add to my dogs every day food. This product has been around for a while. My first dog is 12 years old she was all night and now I give it to my puppy.

This is to AID and NURISH ailing-unwell cats?!?!

I am at a loss as to how a product that is advertised for its sole purpose to aid in boosting the nutritional well being of our beloved fur babies has, as it's first 3 -and 6th ingredients things that have zero nutritional value, let alone should never be fed to an animal... Corn syrup?!?! Soybean OIL?!?! -For WHAT?!?!- No protien benefit and the "Omega" content??-- That's what the "fish oil" is supposed to provide. Malt syrup?!?! -Not malt PASTE- which is a blend of various "good" ingredients with an addition of malt extract And the cane molasses?!?!? --not to mention "fish" oil - I'm sure there is a reason why it's not specified. Good lord!! Buy some salmon oil and make a bone broth concentrate and do your Beloved a solid. #BlessTheBabies

Critter Cat

Critter was apparently bitten by some kind of animal and his leg has been swollen for a month or more . Took him to the vet who drained some of the infection . The doctor put a dressing on Critter's leg , but then his foot became swollen . When we got the bandage off there was still a lot of pus in the wound but he seems to be recovering pretty well now . When the vet first gave Critter some antibiotics he also gave him a tube of Nutri-cal . Critter likes it so much that I ordered 4 more tubes from Chewy . Critter loves the stuff ! Being a new customer , I took advantage of a really good offer from Chewy and received my shipment very quickly . Thank you Chewy for the excellent products , great service , and fast shipping(which was also free!)

Life Saving

I work with a no-kill shelter to foster very young and/or very sick kittens. This stuff is just awesome and many times makes a life-saving difference in a fur-baby@s recovery.

Cats hate

All three of my cats hate the taste. Not disinterested or dislike, but violently hate the taste. Can anyone recommend a high calorie paste/ food/ treat that cats love?

My cat hates it

I first bought Under the Weather which comes in a huge syringe. I mean huge. Both products look like molasses, but this one actually looks more like and has the consistency of syrup. And he hates that taste of it. So imagine trying to get a cat to eat syrup. I went back to Under the Weather because at least that one holds together more and I was able to squeeze the syringe on my finger and shove it down his throat.

Not palatable

We couldn’t get our cat to eat this under any circumstance, and he was lost outside for a month with very little to eat.
