Customer Reviews
DL-Methionine is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cats like it We crush it up and add a little olive oil to the food and stir so it clings a little. The first day the only looked for an hour but one tasted it and said great and the other four joined in. they seem to like it jst fine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from cats will not eat with fod I tried this product as an alternative to Methio-form which has not been available for some time. Methio-Form mixes well with food and the cats took with no problem. This product does NOT mix well with food, and apparently is not palatable because neither of our cats will eat their food if it is mixed in. I have thrown out a whole bottle. Can you advise if and when methio form will be available once more?
