    Easy to use and convenient sizes and price.

    By on

    I didn't check on Chewy earlier, and I have been paying four times Chewy's price for a long time. The bag is easy to hook to the infuser, and I love having the option of ordering 1000 ml or 600 ml.

    My cat Simon needs sub-q fluids for CKD

    By on

    This is the same brand I get from Simon’s vet. I like that I can get 500ml bags from chewy so I don’t have an open bag as long. His vet writes a Rx for fluids. Simon and I have been through a lot together and I want to do what’s best for him all the time.

    My little girl passed away before I had a chance to use. I did use this product from my vet prior to this being shipped and it was a good product.

    Hard to see how much is being used..

    By on

    Has anyone noticed that it's hard to see how exactly how much fluid is in the bag? And one more thing... Did anyone receive bags without the calibrated lines? I had to call the company to notify them of this. Their solution was to send me stick on labels for the bags. I can't tell even with the calibrated lines because of the vacuum in bag how much fluid is going into my cat. I still prefer Hospira. They're more accurate. In all fairness, I didn't purchase thre fluids from Chewy, but my vet switched to this company for Subq fluids but I see Chewy is selling them so I wanted to share my experience. I wasn't warned about the bags not being calibrated. Neither was my veterinarian. Still this Has anyone noticed that it's hard to see how exactly how much fluid is in the bag? And one more thing...

I wasn't warned about the bags not being calibrated. Neither was my veterinarian. Still this brand is not as accurate as Hospira in being able to see just how much is actually being administered to your cat. There's a lot of estimating.... Those stick on labels don't seem right either. Hopefully they've gone through all those unmarked bags by now. … more

    This product was very each to use and had an excellent flow. The bag does not contain DEHP which is highly toxic.

    New to me design

    By on

    Made in El Salvador. Hanging loop smaller, had to carefully cut wider to hang on wider 3/4 inch post. Tube insertion point new to me. No instructions how to insert. I wasted one bag ($9.99) trying to figure it out.

    Great for Kitty

    By on

    I've been using these bags to administer fluids to my senior kitty for a little over a year now. They're great! The bag is easy to read as the fluids flow and they hang great. Love that it keeps my kitty healthy!

    Busted Pkg

    By on

    I had ordered 4 of these recently, went to open the second to last that I had and 1/2 of it had leaked out of the bag. I didn't see any visible spots that were leaking, I believe it was at the top of the container. Very disappointed.

    recommended

    By on

    I didn't have the opportunity to use them all, for sadly I needed to put my 21 year old kitty to sleep. STILL I would recommend this product for it is DEHP free and has the added buffer that makes subcutaneous administration easier on the pet.

    Good quality

    By on

    The only negative about this item is that the numbers for the millimeters needs to be larger and darker.
