As far as the product is concerned, it's a good one, and the bottle dispenser gives you a better amount for your money, with less mess from squeezing a capsule. Though it can take a little while to learn how to dispense the right amount and do it cleanly.
The problem I had with this however, is that many discounted prices seem to include a close or expired date on the package. While this is an ideal sell by date, it's still a little disconcerting to find that the item you just bought has a date two months past due. (A problem I had with some of the capsule bottles.) Not to mention that with a previous purchase as the date approached my cats stopped being willing to eat food with this in it, which makes me wonder about it's freshness. I'd had it for several months though, so that may have been the problem. Fish oil isn't the most stable food item, even with vitamin E to help out.
Oh, and this has a very strong smell, much more so than the capsules. The cats seemed to like it though, which is the main thing. I just couldn't use it when my roommate was cooking because he complained that the smell was throwing off his ability to sense his own ingredients.

our 20 year old japanese bobtail cat had lost a lot of weight, down to only 6.lbs. We had tried changing the brand he ate but he still seemed dis_interested in most of what we put down.... With the very first dose of Welactin on his food, he ate the complete can we put down, and we are glad to say he eats a whole can a day now as well as some "dry" cat food..... He is gradually putting some weight back on.... Thank_you Welactin
Don't bother ordering it. It's not in stock and probably never will be-I've been waiting almost 2 months and keep getting the same answer-it's on backorder.
I hate to say it, but once I added it to their food they turned up their little noses. Would not have anything to do with it.
Recommended by my vet 5 years ago and Tigger has been using it ever since.
Good for my cat's overall wellness
My cat likes the flavor of this product. It also benefits her overall well-being. I've been using this product for over 2 years!

My persian and ragdoll had less than silky coats. My veterinarian suggested Welactin, and after about a week we saw a big difference. Softer, silky coats. We mix it into a bit of canned food, and they love it! Tried putting it on dry food, and they didn't want to eat it at all.
I've had 3 cats with kidney problems, 2 died and the 3rd one I've switched to no vegetables in food (The so called quality foods with vegetables added (high price too), is stressful on their digestive systems, cats can't digest vegetables.) She went from looking like we were going to lose her to a healthy look once we did this. Along with the switch we also purchased the welactin natural samon oil. We've tried samon oil before and all my cats threw up from it! NOT Welactin! There's something about this stuff that makes it far better than other samon oils. Even my cat with CRF doesn't throw up from it!
A bit stinky
It's hard to imagine fish oil that smells this strong isn't bad. I don't know how you'd tell if it had gone bad. Too early to report on effects, but the cat does eat it on the food if I use only half a pump. A full pump is rejected.

I honestly can't comment on this item because I'm still waiting for it! I placed the order Feb 28th and still waiting...
I've used it before so I think it would do my cats good, but...still waiting...
My cat has always suffered from dandruff. No matter how careful I was to brush, bath and chose great food, he still had that pesky dandruff. After only using this fantastic product for about two weeks, he started to look much healthier. His dandruff is greatly improved, his eyes are brighter, and his coat has never been so shiny. Fish oil has so many fantastic benefits for humans, why shouldn't we make sure our cats are getting the same benefits?
If a Cat Could Spit!
This product was recommended to me by my vet, because my cat sheds ALOT! And this was the first morning I gave it to her, it's recommended 1-2 pumps, I only gave her one pump of the stuff, mixed it up in her canned food, and ugh! poor thing, she was not happy! I had to add an additional can of food to the mixture before she would eat it. LOL! I guess it's an acquired taste...

Our Vet recommended this product. We have been very happy with this fish oil product and Bogey loves it with his daily meals. Performs as advertised.
