Although not the salmon flavor my cats licked right out of the tube, this liver flavor is tolerable. I have a 2-year old Tuxedo short hair cat who eats cat hair (literally). This is my "throw-up" cat.
She gets into the trash can after a brushing session and eats the hair. She also eats the hair on the cat condos. She throws up when a hairball is stuck or bothering her. So, this Paw Gel is a blessing for me. She eats it off my finger and meows every morning until she gets her "treat." I also give it to her 3 more times during the day. She has not thrown up in 2 days since this routine.
What she does not lick she gets it smeared on her coat somewhere (rub it in because when they try to shake it off, liver goop flys all over the place). This morning I found her licking the liver goop off the floor where it flew when she shook.
Just ordered 10 (yep, ten) tubes as my now non-throw-up cat eats about a tube per week. Keeps her regular and has no side effects being "gooped" 3 times daily.
Sure do wish the salmon flavor was available. This is the best place to get this wonderful stuff and at this price? Why not buy in bulk as I have.

This is a great company and the salmon we had before is a 5-star product. The liver version needs a revamp. The premise is simple: spread on finger or spoon, cat licks off. This product falters on both counts. The salmon was creamy but this is very stiff so it's hard to even get out of the tube. Once it's out it's spreadable but still pretty stiff. The flavor is a distant second to the salmon. We have 8 cats, all of whom were so eager for the salmon they would climb over each other to get to me when it came out of the drawer- before it was even opened. With the liver 1 will not touch it at all, 3 find it unappealing but will lick it off the paw (with much tongue flicking & such), and 4 will eat it fine but are nowhere near as keen as they were before. I appreciate the price but we won't be buying any more until we get the salmon version back!

      My cats enthusiastically eat this Paw-gel! I just squeeze some out the top of the tube and they go for it. To be fair, one of my cats eats anything, but the other is so annoyingly finicky and she gobbles this product up-a true testament of it's yumminess! Seemingly, it is also very effective at helping them pass the hairballs and not throw them up all over my carpet-ewww!

        Comments about Nutri-Vet Hairball Paw-Gel for Cats, Chicken, 3 oz:

        I've bought several hairball remedies for my aging kitty over the last few years when she started having problems with her hairballs. She's not been a fan of any of them till now. She loves this stuff. Licking it off her paw will send her straight into a grooming session and cause her to look for more. She will also lick it right off my finger till there is none left or will try to lick it off the tube if I show it to her.

        Not only am I happy that she likes this one, but I am happy that it has a nice clean consistency and does not feel like I am putting grease on my finger to feed to her.

          Comments about Nutri-Vet Hairball Paw-Gel for Cats, Chicken, 3 oz:

          This gel contains too much oil which flows
          from a tube all over your fingers, while the gel
          itself does not hold the shape, which makes it
          almost impossible to put it into the cat's mouth.
          Keeping the tube refrigerated does not help since
          the oil still flows out and the gel gets very cold.
          Cats don't like it.

          My cats love this stuff, and it works with the hairballs. I have one short-haired and one long-haired cat and since they have started taking it, I really haven't noticed any hairballs lately. No throwing up and no coughing. It's easy to give to them, and they enjoy the taste. The smell isn't the greatest, but hey, it works!

            I used to struggle with my long haired cat. She would not lick off other types of hair ball products and I would have to force it down her throat. Then I discovered Nutri-Vet and what a God send. She relishes it and licks it right off my finger. She has very bad problem with hair balls because of excessive long hair she ingests. This product has relieved her distressful incidents from frequent to rarely. For her, she takes it every day. Go slow with amount given and increase slowly as needed to avoid loose stools.

              Our rescue cat has always had digestive problems. Most hairball remedies were rejected over the years. This one is appealing enough that we don't even have to administer it to a paw. The cat eats it from a dish. It has helped reduce regurgitation issues.

                I didn't pay too much attention to the negative reviews, because my cat's all time favorite flavor is chicken liver -- in fact, I was happy to see a hairball product with this flavor.

                MY CAT WILL NOT GET WITHIN 2 INCHES OF THIS STUFF. BUYER BEWARE. WHAT WITH ALL OF THE NEGATIVE COMMENTS, I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THIS PRODUCT IS STILL BEING SOLD HERE. TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY.

                  All four of my cats absolutely adore NutriVet Paw Gel in the "Salmon" flavor. Thiey will not touch Paw Gel in the "Chicken Liver" flavor. I contacted NutriVet and received a reply that the "Salmon" flavor was back in production, but until Drugstore.com re-stocks the "Salmon" flavor, I will not be re-ordering.
