    Fat-Cat is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 191.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually works I have an older Arabian stallion and an even OLDER Arabian gelding. After last winter they had both lost a lot of weight. Had their teeth floated again, bumped up their feed. They've always had free access to high quality grass hay and they have a pretty good pasture. I added the Fat Cat because they just weren't putting on weight. It took a couple of months but they are both back in really good shape. Much easier to feed than top dressing with oil!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slow, but obvious weight gain My OTTB has been on Fat Cat for a little over a month now. I have started noticing an increase in his weight and the appearance of his coat in this last 2 weeks. He is getting noticeably shiny and healthier looking!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fat-Cat works well Been feeding 2 months. This is the second time I've used Fat-Cat for a horse in need of weight and muscle. Feeding twice a day (scoops divided into two feedings) with Nutrena Triumph textured 14% protein. Free feed brome hay. Not currently in training though will start soon. Will be adjusting portions soon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Older OTTB with significant improvement! My 16yo OTTB gelding has been on this product for two months. I purchased him about 10 months ago and his topline was non-existent. He had prominent withers, overall lack of muscle, and a slight swayback. I changed his feed to a high-fat formula, increased his hay rations and added alfalfa in addition to conditioning him and working on his topline. He was also started on Devil's Claw. He began to build muscle slowly but seemed to plataue after 8 months. I purchased Fat-Cat because it is affordable and also benefits his gut, coat, and hooves. After 2 months on the product (2 scoops once a day) with no other changes in his diet or routine I am seeing noticable results. His topline looks siginificantly better and his coat is slick, shiny and dappled. His hindquarters are now round instead of sloped and he no longer has pockets on either side of his withers. This product has been great for my boy and I intend to keep him on it for maintenance.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Haven't Seen Results My gelding has EMND and lost a lot of weight. I've been giving him Fat Cat 2x a day, along with Leg Up muscle pellets, vitamin E & selenium, 20lbs of alfalfa hay, 2 scoops of alfalfa pellets, and 6lbs of Dynasport. He is gaining weight very slowly and I couldn't say that adding the Fat Cat has made much of a difference. He doesn't mind eating it, but he will eat anything I throw in his bowl. I probably won't be continuing after 2 months if I don't see real change.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Palatable, economical, and seeing results already! We decided to try this on a horse that we are having trouble getting topline weight on. He is on a well balanced, fortified diet - just needs topline. Our vet suggested trying a muscle supplement. It feeds out easily - licked it right up. We were leary of new supplements making him "hot" - have noticed no change in his manner. We have been using it for a month now - just one dose per day. We are starting to see more weight on his topline with no other changes to his regular rations, or training schedule.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from She's definitely gained weight! In November 2018 we lost the companion to the mare I put on this supplement and she went through an awful period of what looked like grief. She lost weight, wouldn't socialize with the rest of the herd and overall went downhill. The mare pictured is a 16 year old Quarter Horse in medium level regular work (ridden 5 times per week for at least 30 minutes). She became thrifty and looked dull; even through her winter coat ribs were visible. She was being fed 10 lbs of timothy hay, 5 lbs of alfalfa hay and 7 lbs of 14% protein grain each night and free choice hay in the pasture for 10 hours each day. Traditionally this mare is what I might call an "easy keeper", so this was an unusual amount of food for her. She wasn't gaining noticeable weight on this regime and we started looking for other options. We turned to SmartPaks and put Lena on Farriers Formula Double Strength, an Omega 3 supplement, and Fat Cat. I added Fat Cat to her diet in February and on the first week of May I am able to see noticeable difference. She has a true top-line, her ribs are no longer visible, and she's starting to really bulk muscle through her hips and shoulders. In addition to the change in supplement we also discovered Lena had been bitten by a tick that infected her with Anaplas, so the treatment of that issue can definitely be considered a contributor to her improved healthy body weight. Also to be considered is the difference between winter feed (hay) and summer feed (grass); although the supplementation of the alfalfa hay during the winter negates some of the typical differences between the caloric intake during summer versus winter. We have also cut her grain ration in 1/2 since starting her on this supplement and she has more energy and looks better than she has in a year. I can't say that this product will work for you and your horse, but then again it just might. We were impressed with the results and I think it's well worth the money if you're trying to build top-line and muscle in your horses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does the job I bought this and my OTTB definitely gained weight like his life depended on it. But unfortunately I will be taking him off of it as his even temperament has diminished. Now he is a bit to much to handle somedays. Instead of a kick me horse (like the last 3 years I have had him) now I am thinking bigger bit than a snaffle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Horses Love It I started my horses on Fat-Cat a month ago to tone them up for Winter. They look so much better with only using for such a short time.
