    Works fine, and saves me a lot of trips to the vet.

    By on

    My dog is supposed to be receiving 500 mL every other day, so i was making a lot of trips to the vet to restock. Being able to order and have delivered is much more convenient, and my first bag at least was easy to use (although a little different from what i received from my vet) and I had no issues as far as the flow. I’ll certainly continue ordering this product. I just wish Chewy also sold the IV lines for the bags.

    Good Thing Chewy changed their picture, but I did not get what I ordered

    By on

    All saline is generic. Chewy showed Hospira, which is a company my vet uses and which has a single port at the bottom making it a tiny bit easier to drain and flow. I ordered Hospira. I got a 2 port generic. I think they changed the website right after I ordered and the rep told me the website says no brand. But just be aware you are buying no brand. That doesn't mean it's bad. You just have to decide if buying a known generic elsewhere on line is worth what might or might not be an extra price. Also, when I bought, you could not buy the drip line Chewy which meant you HAD to go to another site anyhow. I could not recommend this division of Chewy but other devisions are excellent.
