Rated 5 out of 5 by 2kitties16 Great to have on hand!
I have used this product several times for my older cat who is around 18 years of age. He is in good health but just decided he did not want his regular food one day, and everything else I tried he also did not want. I used this (or Nutri-Cal) so that he was getting some nutrition until I could find something that he would eat. I know that cats can get sick quickly if not eating enough every day. It was a nervous time for me because at one point, all he would eat was the gel. Trying to hand feed him with a feeding syringe was a nightmare. If your cat has to spend time in the animal hospital, it can get very expensive very fast. Thank goodness I found a food he would finally eat though. I usually purchase two at a time. It does last for awhile. However, eventually when getting down to the end of a tube, my cat noticed it was not completely fresh and would not eat the rest. So ordering two at a time allows you to have that extra one on hand. There were a few times he did not take it willingly and I had to put some on the roof of his mouth but am thankful that this product exists. I would recommend putting little round amounts on your finger at a time, smaller than fingertip, otherwise the gel can get sort of stretchy and then it is a bit hard to give to your cat.

We live with a small, adult, female cat who was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. After several years of experimentation with different foods and Rx, we came up with a formula that worked for her for almost 2 years. Then, rather suddently, that diet wasn't keeping her balanced and she started losing weight ) : which she could ill afford at a mere 5lbs! Again, other foods and Rx were introduced... None of the "traditional" treatments prescribed worked for her. At this point, i figured the goal, along with stabilizing her IBS, was to gain weight. So we tried several different brands of high-calorie supplements. This one she loves so much, she has attempted to eat the tube!
