To prevent hairballs feed a one-inch ribbon once or twice a week and brush your cat's coat frequently.
Not What I Expected by Hellonwheels from Costa Mesa, CA11/12/2012
This product is quite runny, and smells horrible. The only way we can get our long-haired cat to consume any of this is to rub it on his paw. If he wasn't such a "clean freak," I doubt he would lick it off. I definitely won't be ordering this again.
must taste good by cindi04/30/2013
My cat does not object to my putting it in her food.
It claims to be tuna flavored, but it's not. It tastes like molasses, just like all the other useless remedies.

I have been using Petromalt on my multi-cat household since 1989. For a few weeks, I have not been able to find it anywhere...either in stores or online. FINALLY! I found it. The contained looked identical and I ordered 6 bottles. They came today and I immediately opened one bottle and tried to feed it to my cat Minnow, who if given the chance, would nurse on the bottle until it was all gone. They are each allowed a strip at a treat after I trim their nails. Minnow sniffed it and walked away. WHAT?

too sloppy by she from France06/01/2013
I found this product rather thin and sloppy, difficult to put on your finger and insert into the cat's mouth. Other products I have used are much more firm in texture.
Looks like the above reviewer made an error … by Nunzio06/08/2012
… as no corn syrup shows up in the ingredient list. She probably meant to leave it on the MALT-FLAVORED Sentry HC Petromalt, which does have corn syrup.
THIS IS THE ONLY PRODUCT MY CAT WILL EAT WHEN MIXED WITH FOOD.
I have used Petromalt forever, it seems. Now they have changed the formula and not for the better! The old Petromalt had mineral oil (44%) as the first ingredient. Now the first ingredient is corn syrup. Not only is corn syrup wrecking our foods, now the animal products, too. The new one is runny, hard to use and the cats don't like it.
Bring back the old formula.
New Formula - NOT HAPPY! by Renee01/19/2012
Why was the formula changed? My cats used to love licking this product right from the tube, now I have to force them to take it! It is so runny and they don't like the plastic tub. They no longer run to me when I show them the tub!! How sad :( Please bring back the old formula and packaging!
Helps with hairballs by Sis's Mom from Cary NC01/17/2012
My kitties loved this so much they thought of it as a treat. I have noticed that the newer, plastic tubes contain a product that is less sticky and more runny which doesn't work as well for my kitties as they prefer to lick it off my finger. It does help with hairballs, my black and white kitty had cottony hair and he washed a lot so this was helpful in reducing hairballs.
by from 06/08/2012
This used to be a great product. It was the only hairball remedy that didn't have a lot of junk in it. Now they've changed it, corn syrup which was not in it before, is now the first ingredient.
runny by now, from myIt's
avoid petroleum by Micki from Lake Tahoe09/11/2013
Although my cat is eating this product, I do not think it is good for her. If I had found the petroleum free product on this web site, I would have ordered that instead. Would you eat petroleum?
seems to work by charger from St Louis, Mo03/06/2014
My cat likes this product and it seems to relieve or prevent hairballs. I just put some on my finger and she licks it off. I use it 2 - 3 times a week. She is long-haired so it is very helpful.
by from 03/20/2012
Be aware this formula has changed and now has corn syrup as the first ingredient (It's a cheap filler). A lot of cats are allergic to corn.

Works well by KittiesMom from Chico, CA10/29/2012
The main reason I buy this brand is that it doesn't contain Sodium Benzoate. I like to stay aware from that preservative. I have a special-needs kitty that has problems with constipation and using Petromalt occasionally helps somewhat with that condition. It also is good for fur during the shedding season for my other cat.
they love it by Dee4 from CT07/18/2012
My cats both love the malt flavor and it works. Enough said!
Petromalt the absolute best by Sandy12/11/2012
All my cats will eat this product. No reluctance at all. I was completely amazed. Of course, this product works wonderfully.
Not a bad purchase by John01/12/2012
My cat likes the Petromalt better than other brands I have tried. She willingly licks it off my finger but it has not stopped her throwing up. There are no large hairballs in the vomitus. I am still searching for a cure for this annoying condition.
Changed formula by sslick5 from Los Angeles, CA07/11/2012
This stuff works great, but they changed their formula so it melts much quicker and is gooey which my cats don't like so rather than them licking it off my finger I now have to spread it on their tongues. Works but the old formula is preferred by both owner and cats.
Great product by Nancy12/09/2012
My cat will not eat any other brand of hair ball preventive. I tried! She balked! The only problem with this is she would love to eat the whole tube!
Hairballs? by Ranger01/26/2012
This product is a life saver for my long haired cat. He eagerly waits on Mon and Thu for his "treat" of the malt flavor paste. Since I began using it, there have been no more occurances of throwing up those dreaded hairballs.
Sentry-Hairball Relief by Janet from Phila., PA07/23/2014
Great product. My cats love the taste. Larger tube is economical to buy.
My cat loves these and can't wait until I open the bag....he comes running! Easeir than the gel and convenient.

No Go by aubergine06/05/2014
Was hoping to try a change in hairball treats but 3 noses turned them down. I'm now sneaking them in small pieces into wet food.
Great product! by JX_GRL10/05/2013
Hairballs are a constant battle but with these treats I've seen alot fewer incidents. The cats like the taste, consider it a "special treat" and it's much less messy than a paste product.
Our cat loves this!!! All we have to do is ask him if he wants a "chewy" and he starts meowing.
Another Flop by Hellonwheels from Costa Mesa, CA11/12/2012
Both of our cats love treats, but neither would even taste these. They have the consistency (and appearance) of pencil erasers. I had high hopes for these, but I guess it's back to the hairball control treat I've been using the last couple of years. I had hoped to get away from giving them so many treats, but at least they love the other brand.

I have tried other fiber products for my aging cats, a few have arthritis in the hind end, which was causing a visit to the vet to get a procedure (enema) to clear the bowel blockage.

Easier than gel! by cat woman from Northglenn, Co06/19/2012
This is my second purchase and my cats love them! The gels are messy and cumbersome to use, this is a wonderful option. Totally worth giving a try, especially with long hair cats!
great chewable remedy by madz from Danvers, MA10/27/2013
my cats like this product, I hope there is a bigger pack on this product.
Great for Hairballs by MO from CA06/26/2013
My vet recommended the chewable treats for kitty because she did not like the tube Petromalt. I give them every day and she seems to be doing well. I went to another brand once a day and with in a few days she had hairballs.
It works and he likes it by Joeshoe2013 from Abq NM01/15/2013
I tried this product in hopes it would help his indoor cat hairball issues. I was extremely pleased that my cat not only likes the flavor but it does work on his hairball issues. This order was to stock up. Try it your cat like mine might just love it.
great product by asasmom10/28/2012
The only hairball meds my cat will accept! She's old and fussy but she loves these!
Sentry HC Petromalt Hairball Chewable by REArt from San Diego Ca06/25/2011
My very finicky boy cat Knodl loves these hairball treats he gobbled up 4 of them. My little girl Kiva (Bengal) just thought they were a toy.
