Normosol-R is a prescription solution that helps maintain hydration during the treatment of shock, decreased water intake, and to replace fluids lost due to an illness like kidney disease. Plus, it may help restore the decrease in circulatory volume in cases of moderate blood loss. The solution is administered by intravenous infusion for the replacement of acute fluid loss.

Because I was overly busy for a couple months due to hubby passing away, I fell behind on ordering these lifesaving fluids for my now-11yo calico. Since I only had one dose left, I thought it would be better to get a bag from my nearby vet to set up right away and then do my order of more bags from Chewy. I decided to get two. I told the vet I had the attachments at home and didn't need any new ones. It took them 20 minutes to get it ready---AND they decided to include attachments THEY plugged in even though I said it wasn't necessary as I have lots of experience with them. (I never plug in until I am gooing to use that bag)I looked at the receipt after I got home a couple hours later and it was $95 for 2 bags AND the hookups I don't need. They even inserted the hookups INTO the bags and said they came with the bags. They don't come with since it's a separate charge and I could hear the vet tech saying she was having trouble getting one of them in. I never plug in the tubes until I am ready to use. I will never again forget to order this lifesaving product from Chewy and now have estimated reorder dates on my regular calendar. And may go back to a different vet in town I've used before but isn't as handy to get to. Makes me sad. The new ownership is 'just business' and the 2 carryover employees don't get much say.
Excellent product and much less expensive than at the vet.
It has arrived perfect condition. Sadly I did not use at all since my cat passed away before that. Chewy has been great through out my four cats. Thank you.
I'm so happy Chewy carries this item at an affordable price. 3 bags/mo, meds, Rx food etc, is astronomically expensive. I'm glad thanks to Chewy, I can afford to make kitty more comfortable for the time he has left. Thank you so much Chewy.
Honestly, I hate having to do this sub-q fluids thing. It is so painful for me as it is for my 5lb Yorkie that trembles uncontrollably from fear of the injection. She hates the cool fluid in her. My dog is nothing like any of the youtube videos that show calm pets getting the fluid. My dog will push and scratch away. However, because of this fluid, she has come back to life! My Yorkie is no long dehydrated, she has energy to eat independently and is finally standing up and even running behind me! I only wish this Normosol-R Fluid bag came with the tubing. Everything is a separate cost (fluid, tube, needles) and since this is a life-time need for my dog with Chronic Kidney Disease, it is too costly to pay for every part necessary to give this fluid. A new tubing is needed with every bag and for people like me that go through one bag every five days...we could definitely appreciate for Normosol-R to come with the tubing for the same price. Perhaps have a discounted rate for those who need this product for the dog's lifespan.
My old guy has been having some health issues and the Normosol is what the vet had given him for dehydration. I have been giving this at home for awhile now and it really has made a difference in how my boy feels. I am so glad that Chewy has a pharmacy. My vet that I have used for 20+ years is now an hour away from me. Being able to order this instead of driving so far just to pick up meds has really helped me alot.
My dog recently had an acute kidney episode that left her kidney's damaged and will need to be on fluid therapy for the rest of her life. Was thinking I wouldn't be able to afford treatment for very long but Chewy has made it possible! Thank you so much for carrying this product, it is a literal life saver in my case!
I am so THANKFUL that chewy is carrying these fluids. We're using sub-q fluids 2x daily for Pockets, who is CKD. We were having trouble buying them from the vet due to cost especially being on maintenance. When I saw these at chewy along with the HUGE price difference, was so overjoyed. I'm not sure what the difference is between this and the regular lactacted ringers other than the amount of ingredients but this is what was always used at my vet for Pockets when he had to have fluids thru the vein. It's working for Pockets.
