Wish I'd known sooner! Spent years cleaning up cat hack, stained carpet & probably wasn't pleasant for the cats either! After 2 doses, I saw results & after 4th dose, no more cleanup. It's only been 2-3 weeks, but I'm definitely impressed & hope it continues to work. My 2 cats were a little dubious about eating this the first time & one of them out & out fought me & I had to sort of smear it on her face, but now they lick it out of a spoon, no hassels. 06/11/2011
Changed formula I have used this in the past and my cat would not hesitate to eat it. I purchased more recently - same item and flavor and she won't touch it. They must have changed the formula. 08/20/2014
Not the same product as before!! My cat won't eat this NEW Petromalt. I'm very disappointed in the fact that the formula has been changed and after using this for 15+ yrs, my cat refuses to eat it. After looking at the ingredients list, I found that the malt flavoring is now about 4-5 on the list of ingredients, whereas before it was second on the list. So now that it smells differently, my cat won't touch it. It doesn't even have a malt "smell" to it. You've screwed up big time with your new product. I won't be buying it again and I'll get my money back on the tube that I did purchase. I would not recommend this product to anyone. Big mistake in changing the ingredients. 07/03/2014
Less Barfing I am the Mom of 2 cats: Malcolm and Lil Shaver. Malcolm licks the medicine right off my finger. He loves it! No more barfing! But, Lil Shaver won't lick it off my finger. She's pretty temperamental. We need to figure out how to get rid of hair balls with her. But, Malcolm just loves Petmalt! 07/03/2014
Peteroleum Jelly Don't use. 32% of this product is made with petroleum jelly, which can cause sezures and death. 11/08/2013

Is the original Petromalt (Malt flavor) available yet?
My cats loved the previous product and licked it off my finger, thought it was a treat, but turn up their noses and will not even look at the runnier product. They run the opposite direction!

This was such a great product. . . .

Is your petromalt new? Sergeants made petromalt and changed the ingredients recently and most cats HATE IT. They run away and my friends cat got sick. I called Sergeants and they did in fact add something to it...........they said that they received MANY complaints. They will be going back to the original, however, they did not have a date. I was told not to buy any petromalt with "WWW" on the outside of the box.
I will order it if this is the NEWEST petromalt, otherwise I have no choice but to wait until it is in the stores again where I can see the code on the box. Please let me know. I am interested in the malt flavor one. Thank you!.

Answer: 
Put a nickle size squeeze of petromalt in a very little dish, and add some tuna water from a can of tuna (say 2 teaspoons) and mix it until the petromalt is blended. I buy the store brand of chunk light in water (.79 cents a can). Chunk light definitely has more liquid than albacore. Store the tuna in the frig for the next application in a few days, and after you use all the liquid from the can, give the tuna to the cat. Cheap enough.
