    Great Option

    By on

    I have been giving my kitty lactated ringers for 5 years now, and I really like these bags. I actually like that the plastic isn't super flexible; it doesn't wrinkle up, so it makes it easier to gauge how much water I have given. --To the other reviewer who didn't like that you can't squeeze the bag---Don't squeeze the bag! Just raise it up above your kitty and let gravity do the work. I bought an IV pole online. I too wish Chewy offered ultra thin wall needles (which are hard to get now) and tubing sets. And I wish these bags weren't currently out of stock. I'll check back soon.

    Reasonably priced life-saving treatment

    By on

    My cat is suffering from renal failure and hyperthyroidism. I was sure she was going to die as, she became too weak to move and quickly withered down to nothing. Injecting 150 ml. every other day, has turned things around for her, for the better. We are still dealing with a long-term disease but this will help with her comfort level and prolong her life. The sparkle has returned to her little eyes and some spunkiness too. The hardest part of this, is learning to poke your beloved pet but, you get over it if it means saving their life.

    Saved me $$$ from buying at vet

    By on

    Out of all the LRS bags I have used over the past 3 years the Vetivex is the best. It does not expand and lose its shape like the humira bag so the doses are extremely accurate.

    Convenient and fast delivery

    By on

    Chewy did a great job of working with my vet to get the prescription and get the IV fluids quickly in a timely manner. The packaging was excellent and product was exactly what I expected. Unfortunately my sweet little 17.5 year old feline passed away before we used it all up, so I will be donating to a rescue group.

    Disappointed in these bags.

    By on

    I am disappointed in these bags. The plastic is not flexible at all, making it incredibly hard to squeeze the solution out.

    Perfect for my cat and me.

    By on

    This works perfectly with the Infusion Set with Y Injection kit and the Terumo Hypodermic Needles, both from Chewy.com.

    Expiration Dates

    By on

    We are new to this since we found out our 8 year old cat is in renal failure. We decided to order online to save trips to the vet’s office. I found it confusing. I didn’t realize how quickly the solution expires. I ordered two bags and had to donate the second because they expire within a month. Also, these bags don’t come with the “line” or the tubing you need to administer. That was not clear on the website. I think it should say something that you will need to buy the line separate and/or they should be sold together.

    Just like the vet uses for LESS!

    By on

    While I am reviewing this item before buying it, I can attest it is a great LR for CKD kitties. The one our vet uses and we have used many times. If Chewy would add the ultra thin wall needles and 10 or 15 dr/ml lines, we'd be set for all our SubQ needs. Thanks for offering this critical product to help our 20+ CKD Squee Bomb feel better!

    A nice alternative

    By on

    My dog has CKD and receives fluids every third day. Lactated ringers solution from Chewy has been a savior, and I love that this brand is BPA-free.
