Rated 5 out of 5 by from She loves the taste! Mila has been on this all her life, when she turned one we changed her to the dog instead of puppy. She has lots of energy and walks two miles every day with me, that's good for a pug! I will keep her on this as long as she takes it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product My 15 1/2 yr Pom , had all his teeth removed . So he can no longer eat his normal dry food, he eats Gerber baby food meats with mashed potatoes and I add about a 1/2 tsp. to each meal,as directed by my vet. He has gained weight ,and his appetite has improved also. Nutrical is a life saver , as before I started feeding him this way, his blood sugar got so low he was very lethargic and weak. They have also added in the Omega's which is new and that helps with his arthritis and his joints. This product really is a LIFESAVER

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver I've read all the reviews and all are spot on as to the effectiveness of Nutrical except for the one so so review. For over the 25yrs. that I've been using this product it has literally brought near death cats/dogs back to the point where the real medications can take over. I have mixed this with distilled water slowly doing very little amounts eyedropped it into animals over several hours that didn't have the strength to lick it up. You don't want to drown, choke, or overwhelm such a depressed system. I have had more animals come back to the point of being able to get the medications they need into them then losing animals. This can be upsetting to the stomach also after awhile, so once the animal is 75% back to healthy, I usually wean them off it, keep an eye on their condition for a week or so. Then use again only if it looks as if the animal is backsliding. When they can lick it, or out right eat it plain(i've never had a concious animal turn it down# I usually give with some sort of plain food that is soothing to the stomach. Wish they had something like this for my horses if they ever got sick. Its also great for any dog that works hard. My oldest cat #16yrs)comes running when I go to the closet where I keep the Nutrical. I split his daily dose in half am/pm. Can not say enough about this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Talk to vet first! After a routine physical, the vet stated my older cat was losing weight, and to try different high calorie food. He didnt have any problems with his blood work. I bought this nutri cal, to supplement his diet, and give him some extra vitamins. He loved the flavor and licked a little off my finger each day. However, after a couple months, my cat had additional blood work. His blood sugar levels were dangerously high. The main ingredient in this product is high fructose corn syrup, and this significantly affected his blood sugar. This product might be good in special, vet monitored, short term situations. Do no use over a long period of time, without monitoring the side effects.

Can you give the kitten supplement to an adult cat?

Our adult cat has IBD and lost about 5 pounds. We're trying to boost his protein, fat, and calorie intake to help is weight gain.
Asked by: EBull
you should try nutri cal for your kitten. And i don't see why you could not give kitten supplement to an adult cat. Your cat is small and vets recommended to me in the past to feed pregnant cats and nursing cats kitten food so if your kittys weight is an issue...I'd go for the kitty supplements. My cats are Fat so they need less calories. lol

My heart diseased lhasa apso, 19.3 pounds,, age 13, takes .25 xanax daily to stimulate appetite, Will this be a safer effective alternative for him?

He takes 3 blood pressure/heart rate meds 2x's a day, also. without the xanax he does not eat a good dinner. he DOES NOT NEED to gain weight. He also takes two different water pills twice a day to prevent congestive heart failures episodes. If not this product, can you suggest another, non-addictive product?

Is this vitamin detrimental if the puppy is a healthy eater who is normally active?

Our Breeder recommended this vitamin and our puppy has been having the vitamin every day. I realize the vitamin has extra calories and am worried that the puppy may not need this now that she is 6 months old.
Asked by: Dinawk
Depending on the breed of puppy, it may be beneficial to you to have around in the case that your puppy doesn't get a good meal in during the day to prevent low blood sugar. My vet also recommended this for my shihtzu mix puppy, we don't use it every day, but it helps a lot for the days that he doesn't eat too much.

Should my cat use Nutrical?

How long should I supplement my 7yr old cat with Nutrical when he goes off his food or just picks. Otherwise in good health.
Asked by: 3sfkitty
I am not a vet, and don't profess to be one in any way. Just have personal experience with this product. First have cat checked for any health problems, if that has been done ask your vet what he/she thinks is best. Your cat may just need a plain hairball remedy and no extra supplements to boost his system. I give Nutrical daily to my 16yr old cat. But I split his total daily dose into two 1/2 doses 1/2am and 1/2pm. I would suggest(i'm not advising) that when your cat starts eating again you could give him a 1/2 dose daily or even a 1/4 dose daily. See if that regulates him to eat without getting picky or going off his food. Let your cat guide you as to what is a good balance. The less you need to give the better.
