Great product, good price
March 20, 2021
My two cats love this stuff, fortunately, because it does seem to work to minimize hairballs. They will lick it off of my finger, but I usually mix it into their canned food. Dosage can be tricky: I give it to my older, long-haired cat 3x/week. Currently, I am giving it to my younger, medium-haired cat 2x/week. Entirely Pets had the best price on this product, even considering the Shipping charge.
  • Easy to administer (to 2 cats; the 3rd one won't touch it).
  • Effective.
  • Very good price.

My cat would not take any other brand
March 19, 2019
We've been feeding our cat Sidney this product for a few years and he just loves it. Recently it has become a ritual in the evening that he would jump on my husband's sofa stool and puts his paw on the tube of Sentry, and proceeds with licking it off of my husband's finger! Bravo for a great product.

seems to work
March 6, 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.

avoid petroleum
September 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?

Petromalt the absolute best
December 11, 2012
All my cats will eat this product. No reluctance at all. I was completely amazed. Of course, this product works wonderfully.

Great product

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!

Works well
October 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

My cats both love the malt flavor and it works. Enough said!

Changed formula
July 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.

They've ruined it
June 8, 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.

It's disgusting and runny now, my cats hate it, and it is no longer effective. Unfortunately I stocked up, as is my habit, before I knew it had been changed. I will not purchase this product again.

Has Corn in it
March 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.

I'm really bummed because my cats like the malt flavor much better than the fish or chicken flavors but they cannot have corn . . .

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.

Helps with hairballs
January 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 John
Not a bad purchase
January 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.
