Nutri-Cal is a caloric supplement to help boost dietary intake in pets, particularly those suffering from under-eating or malnourishment. Those animals that need an extra boost in their diet or vitamin balance will benefit greatly from a regular regimen with Nutri-Cal in addition to their regular food intake. The product also works very well for working dogs that consume a lot of energy in their duties and need to be kept fed on the road to keep their energy levels up.

Nutri-Cal Paste includes a high-potency mix of protein, fat, various vitamins, minerals, and various organic acids, producing an energy-boosting calorie booster that will keep animals at their motivation peak rather than suffer from hunger or lack of nutrition.

Packed in an easy to carry 4.25 oz container sold by, Nutri-Cal Paste is easy to serve to a pet while in transit, on the road or in the backwoods, taking up little space and weight. For hunters or team animal leaders, this product is the perfect go-to food supplement for their animals. Just donít get any ideas for making it a personal snack. Your canine friend might not appreciate sharing his travel treat.

    Great for special circumstances

    This review is qualified because we are using it as a dietary supplement for one of our four house cats who was a rescue, is now 13-15 years old, has been on meds for thyroid issues, and suffered a stroke episode about two months ago. She now moves awkwardly, eats very little voluntarily and so we give her meds and an "injection" (large format syringe) of this Nutri-cal twice daily. She likes the flavor and we believe it is helping to sustain her for the time being.

    My dog, Max, really likes these vitamins. No problem ever getting him to take them. We put it in a baby syringe and he licks it off as we slowly push it out. It has made a huge difference in his energy level. Can't run out. Ordering more today.

    Nutrition supplement
    May 23, 2015
    My Beagle first used this product in December 2014 when he experienced a bacterial infection. He was hospitalized at the vet for 2 days and on IV fluids. When he returned home, we were given this product along with a pediatric electrolyte. This was the only nutritional supplement my dog had for 5 days. He truly loved it! He became sick again in April 2015 and again, we used this product with more electrolytes. Even when he recovered I would mix it with his canned or dry food. It's an awesome product and VERY tolerable for dogs.

    Excellent vitamin for my dog with allergies
    March 31, 2015
    My dog Steel is allergic to literally everything. Every prescription diet and vitamin makes him break out in full body hives. I now home cook my dog's meals and need to supplement with vitamins but I've been having such bad luck with all forms of vitamins - human and animal types. I actually purchased the Nutrical for my other dog and took a chance and gave a bit to Steel. And to my surprise, he didn't break out in hives! So darn tooting...I'm all "FOR" this product. His coat is so much healthier since there is also omega fatty acids in the formula. I'm slowly increasing the dosage as I am certain that Steel is able to accept this vitamin. And by the way, did I tell you he just licks it off my finger like it was a treat! That's the best part. There's no fighting and no fuss to give him something that's good for him!

    Great supplement for ferrets
    January 27, 2015
    We have been using Nutri-Cal as a dietary supplement for ferrets for 15 years.
    An excellent product when given in moderation to weak or sick ferrets.
    Be careful if you have a ferret suffering for an insulinoma.
    Also a good winter supplement that helps weight gain and coat quality.
    We tried it ourselves once a day last winter and we never caught the flu...! Highly recommended

    My Vet recommended it.
    September 8, 2014
    My little Hyperthyroid cat, recently diagnosed, is thin. Her Vet handed me a tube of Nutri-cal and told me to give it to her twice a day. I think it probably helps because of the ingredients but she very much dislikes getting it. She yowls and growls and tries to claw me. She spits it out if she can. But I think it helps her. I wish it really was palatable for her, poor kitty!!

    Nutri-cal keeps my tiny, little girl kitty nourished and feeling good! She is a very dainty eater and this provides the extra supplement she needs in her diet. It adds shine to her fur and gives her pep in her step ;)

    Dogs love this and it is good for them
    August 23, 2014
    Our dogs love this as a treat. Of course this is healthy
    We buy this product all of the time.
    We give this as a treat.
    If your dogs cannot eat or has a problem eating, you should give them this for all of the healthy nutrients. Our dogs are older and they like this Nutri-Cal not the one they have for senior dogs.

    Nutri-Cal for our cat
    July 20, 2014
    The vet recommended Nutri-Cal (4.25 oz paste) by VETOQUINOL, because our 19 year old cat has low blood sugar. Mixing it into his meals didn't work out well. Since we started putting it on our finger and scraping it onto the roof of our cat's mouth 4x/day, he seems more active and has a much better appetite.

    May 27, 2014
    Doc sent me home with this for our Matty, a long hair Siamese mix - who is in renal failure.....He was in bad shape. That was 5 months ago! I give 3 tsp daily. He used to eat it for me, but now I mix 1 tsp w 1/2 tsp water, & give it to him thru an oral syringe. This gives him vitamins, as well as calories, and combined with the A/D & K/D wet foods, he is doing pretty well - and has only lost 1 lb to date. Much better than all of us, including the vet, were expecting.

    good stuff
    April 25, 2014
    the first time I bought this my 17 year old (finky) cat, she loved it. she ate it like it was candy. she's very frail and has a thyroid problem so she can never gain any weight and that's why I was very happy when she was taking her vitamins. It really did/does make a huge difference, her coat looks better and she has more energy...however, for some reason, the 2nd tube isn't going as well...she wants nothing to do instead of wasting the product I'm putting a little on her nose and she's licks it off. at least she's getting it into her body.

    didn't like
    April 20, 2014
    I bought this for 2 18 year old cats and they don't like it. Mixed it in with canned food and they wouldn't eat it. If you want to force feed it to them then they will get the calories, but that is the only way that my cats will eat it. If your cats aren't eating at all I guess this would be ok for you to get them the calories but mine will eat, they are just skinny and I was hoping this would be a good way to get some weight on them by adding to the food.

    My renal failing cat, who is also a very picky eater, loves this supplement! He licks it right off my finger.
    After being diagnosed with kidney disease two years ago I switched him to a KD food and he ate it well but he was still losing weight so I asked the vet about a high calorie supplement that wouldn't cause other problems. This Nurti-Cal gel is what he's working.

    Really helped my cat
    January 27, 2014
    Chloe is my 15 yr old cat and she seemed to have lost her appetite completely. In desperation I purchased this supplement and within one week she began eating again. At this point, she is actually waiting for me to serve her breakfast and dinner. It has really helped.

    How does this differ from NutriCal Cats? Is it just the taste or is this one higher in calories?
    1 Answer
    Hello, Vetoquinol Nurtical and the Tomlym Nutri-Cal Cats are made by the same company called Vetoquinol. The only difference is the name of these products.

    My cat loves it, but could this be giving him diarrhea?
    1 Answer
    There are no reported side effects or indications that point to Nutri-Cal as the cause of your pet's diarrhea. I would recommend you speak to your veterinarian about the problem or try a probiotic supplement such as Proflora for Cats to reduce instances of diarrhea by improving your cat's digestion. As for stopping diarrhea right away, try Diagel for Cats, available at the link below:
