These vitamins are awesome. High quality and have a soft texture that my cats' love!! Have tried my different vitamins and they never liked any of them - but they LOVE the Vetri Science Nu-Cat Soft Chews.
Just what one would want
My cats both love these chewable vitamins. It's the only thing they have in common, and vitamin time is the only time they get along during the day. They are getting older, one being nine and the other 16, and both have shown marked improvements in energy and coat since starting on these
The shape of Nu-Cat Soft Chews
from Philadelphia, PA04/25/2010
My first purchase of Nu-Cat Soft Chews was from my Veterinarian's office. The chews had a bite-sized barrel shape. I made a routine of breaking the chew in two so my cat had "two treats" one right after the other. My cat loves the treats so much that she thinks of nothing else. When I take my own medication, she sits and watches my hands in case she is going to get something, too. I then ordered three bags. The chews came in a fish shape. I think the smell differs from the other shape. My cat likes them just as much. I don't. Many of the fish in the package are broken already and they seem smaller to me. If I had a choice I would choose the barrel shape. I would give the barrel 5 stars instead of the 3 I gave to the fish shaped chews.
Nu-Cat Soft Chews
The price was lower than that same item at my veterinary office. Plus my cat really likes the taste so there is no problem getting him to eat them.
I plan to purchase them again and again

I have two cats, one a real "fuss-butt". I add one chew in their dry food daily and there is no problem in getting them to eat it. In fact, they love it and look at me for more, but I only give them one per day. They think of it as a treat.

Our kitties fur was dull and course. After being on these vitamins for a couple of months her coat was shiny and soft. It has also grown in a bit thicker. I highly recommend them!
I previously wrote about these chews and cannot go back to correct an error.
Vet recommended vitamins
from Mt. Airy, MD09/12/2013
These are the best vitamins out there. My vet recommended them for my cats. They are soft fish shape and you can break them into smaller pieces. My cats think they are a treat and love them! Anything from Vetri-Science is great!
Neither of my cats consider this to be a treat. They may have eaten one or two accidentally, but generally they ignore it. I will not buy it again.
Great treats! My cats love them. My vet highly recommended these to me and they are a hit at this house. Entirely Pets offers top quality products at prices that cannot be beat!
Vetri-Science Nu-Cat Soft Chews
from NE Washington state10/26/2011
My three 15 year old cats loved them but something changed about a year ago. Only 1 cat will eat them now so I no longer buy these. Sure wish I could get the original fish shaped soft-chews instead of the new barrel shaped soft-chews. That's the ones they all would eat.
Used to love them
I'm in the same camp as the previous reviewer who was first introduced to the product in barrel shape form. My 3 cats were prescribed this product by my vet and all loved it!! And, I knew they were getting the correct amount. Now, with the the fish shape, at least half of the bag contains broken chips, most less than a quarter of a fish, some just crumbs. Not only is approximating a "fish-worth" of crumbs difficult, but the cats won't eat the small crumbs!! Please go back to a more shipping-stable shape- or switch to a more shipping-damage resistant package!!!
Cats wouldn't touch them
I have 8 cats in the house and not one would even try one. If they won't eat them they won't help them
Good way to keep your cat healthy
My cats are 6 yrs old and both seem to enjoy the flavor. I find that they are a little too chewy at the size they are so I break them into 2-3 pieces and then the cats eat them quite well. Occasionally they aren't as interested but I generally give them a couple of cat treats afterward and they don't get the cat treats until they eat the vitamins. They've been taking them for about a month and seem more energetic.
Fish-shaped chews and highly palatable taste make for treats for my cat when she gets them twice daily, though she doesn't know they're really high-level supplements. She loves her Nu-Cat chews!
A supplement to my own cooking
My cat has had 3 brands of his favorite cat food successively removed from the market. Not able to find a brand of food that this shellfish loving cat will eat, I now cook for him.
To make sure that he gets the nutrients he would have gotten from wet cat food, I supplement his diet with these soft chews which he gobbles up eagerly.
good cat soft chews
from honolulu, hawaii07/10/2012
These chews must be tasty.5 out of 7 of my cats eat it.They look healthier when taking them. i feel goood knowing that their health is a bit better. and they really like it. As far as the other2 cats, they dont like pills,chews or jerky.
My cat LOVES the Nutri Science Nu Cat vitamins. I think it helps her general well being and her coat is gorgeous. She reccomends them.
Disappointed This Time
Normally when I order these kitty vitamins, they arrive quickly and are fresh. The most recent order did arrive quickly but the vitamins are almost hard, an indication that they might not be as fresh. They are still within the expiration date on the package but my cats don't seem as enthusiastic about eating them as they have in the past.
These are the best vitamins. My holistic vet recommended them. My picky kitties LOVE them! Great product.

My cat loves these. They are the only "treat" she likes! They have kept her from getting her recurring eye infection for years now. I buy 3 bags at a time.
by Retired Teacher08/27/2013
The little "fishies" must taste good because my little kitty is pretty picky and she eats two of them each day with her meals. She is over 18-years-old and her body has gotten rather boney, but she still jumps on boxes, the bed and windowsill every day. She accompanies me when I walk down to feed the horse and hunts "creatures" at night that I can't see, but ones that she can hear. I am so grateful that this supplement, which my vet recommended, is keeping her joints healthy and keeping her a happy kitty!
Easy to Use
My cat loves these. I put them in with her soft food and she eats them up right away. I highly recommend them.
MY SENIOR CATS
Frida, Fridita and Bolita are my 3 senior cats out of a population of 25. At the shelter, we do all for them and give them the best food possible and supplements. Ever since these three angels are taking this vitamins, their fur, behavior and over all life has improve tremendously. Bolita gets hiper just to hear the package being open. She like the "fish shape" and always expects to get more than one piece. I love her....we love them all!
still don't like the fish shape
by Barbara A
The last reviewer mentions that the breakage is meerly a half split. My complaint is that the product ends up in crumbs. I squeeze the crumbs together to make a new "chew". I think it is a waste of product to have it disintegrate into crumbs. If my cat did not like them so much and my Vet hadn't recommended I would search for a different product. Can't you please go back to the barrel shape? It is much more shelf stable.
Miracle appetite stimulant
from Baltimore, MD07/14/2012
I buy these not so much as a supplement as for crumbling on top of food when any of my senior cats won't eat. Just a tiny bit crumbled on top makes any meal palatable. It has never failed! Plus I like that they don't have a lot of unnecessary artificial ingredients.
Keep them Hidden
One of my cats went so insane over these that he stole them from a shelf in the night, ripped the bag open and ate about 15 of them. We kept a close eye on him and he was fine, but now he won't go near them so I can only imagine he didn't feel too well for a couple of days having OD on the vitamins. I would recommend keeping them in a locked cabinet. My other guys still get a daily dose and love them.
Good and yummy
My picky cat really likes them. Apparently they taste good and are good for her. Only problem--they tend to crumble and fall apart.

This product boosts my cat's immune system. She is quite particular and prefers these over any cat treat!
Kitties love them!
from Oahu, Hawaii05/02/2014
I have a few kitties with medical problems and found that these vitamins help them look and feel better. They love the taste. I do have to break them in pieces for some kitties. They hear the bag and come running when it's time to take their vitamin!
Cats love it!
My three cats love the taste of these chews! It's a great way to get a cat to take a supplement without trying to hide in their food. When I open the drawer where I keep the Nu-Cat chews, my two kittens come running in. They think it's a treat! One of my kittens is very picky and he doesn't even like most cat treats but he just loves the Nu-Cat chews.
picky eater loves them
My picky eater kitty loves these chews. She dislikes most treats and supplements and we have had a hard time finding foods she will eat enough of. This is a cat that will dip under weight if we don't watch her carefully. This is an easy way for me to make sure she is getting the vitamins and nutrients she needs. My other two cats, not picky eaters, also love them.
Better bag please
Out of five cats only two will eat them. There needs to be improvement on the quality of the bag. The self-closing strip always separates from the rest of the bag. This has happened with all four bags that I've used. They always must be stored in a plastic container because of poor packaging.
by Jane Lemay01/13/2009
My cat, Muriel is a kidney patient - and far from an only cat. It's always a problem getting all of the extra vitamins she needs into her: she's a picky eater and the other cats often snarfle up her left overs. But, she LOVES the soft chews. THey are a treat she looks for twice a day. No more problems getting her vitamins her instead of the others!
Senior cats like them
Gave these to my two rescue senior cats. They love them. These are not hard nor too soft.
Vetri-Science Nu-Cat Soft Chews
My vet recommend these vitamins and sells them at twicr the price. My cats love them.
Cats love these, but...
Entirely Pets sucks at shipping. This is twice now that I've ordered enough packages of these...a whole year's supply...to qualify for their "free shipping". Problem is, even after spending over $85 with them, they can't manage to get the product to me in less than 10 days. That's right TEN DAYS! By comparison, I spend $80/year for Amazon Prime, and get free AND lightning fast shpg on everything I buy from Amazon. Get with the program, EP.com....your customers deserve better.
My 3 cats coming running for these when I say "vitamins!". Nuff said.
my cat is 19 so i thought she could benefit from a vitamin. she seems to be doing well with these, her coat is softer and looks better. i also give her naturvet hip & joint supplement.
from Williamsville, NY06/05/2012
My cat just loves this product she runs to her bowl when she hears me opening the bag!
My older Grandkitty did not have hair on her tummy. I ordered her the Nu-Cat Soft Chews and she loves them and she now has a hairy tummy! She began feeling better and she has one or two everyday!
I haven't had enough time to evaluate this product. But the 4 year and 6 year boys cats eat them right down. So the flavor is great. They seem to be okay as vitamins.
from Tucson, Arizona10/22/2012
My Sammy would eat the whole bag if I let him! He loves his Vetri-Science Nu-Cat soft chews; thinks they are "treats." Great product to promote healthy felines.
