    Willow fluids

    By Bagsrbbad on Jun 18, 2021

    Had previously ordered & received 2 bags, went to open a new one this AM, & water had leaked out into the doubled plastic bag it was shipped in. Tried to use the 2nd bag & there was a small leak in the bottom where the 2 sides were sealed together. Our cat Willow need her fluids every other morning, so will purchase all future supplies from our vet, rather than Chewy & will not have the same type of issues. I think it was a manufacturing problem, not Chewy but quality control to the customer is very important!

    What GREAT savings

    By kittymom on May 22, 2021

    I've been doing hydration on Rocky my 16 yr old kitty for about 8 mom. I've been paying the same for one bag of ringers with tubing and about 20 needles. I just got 3 bags, 100 of the 20 gauge needles and two pkgs of tubing for about 1/3 of what i'd been paying and its the same brand of lactated ringers. As soon as I figure the timing estimate this will go on autoship as does his prescription KD, treats and toys. THANK you CHEWY

    Be careful

    By Nancy on Mar 25, 2021

    I have ordered this product twice (once for 2 bags and once for 4 bags). The first order 1 bag was completely empty when I got my wet box. Chewy replaced it (thank you). The next order was for 4 bags and one bag is almost empty. I haven't contacted Chewy yet, but I'm beginning wonder if this is an inferior product - 2 out of 6 leaked for me. Not a good track record.

    RX IV Fluids

    By Noodle on Dec 2, 2020

    Wish I had known sooner that I could order these through a vet pharmacy. It was less than half of what I usually pay at the vet plus it is packed in DEHP-free bags which is also nice. It did take awhile to get the delivery so you have to plan ahead.

    Medical supplies in a clutch

    By Sakibear on Nov 24, 2020

    I was traveling in rural Vermont and in desperate need of IV fluid for my 18 year old cat. None of the local vets agreed to help me because they were not dispensaries. My cat will get very sick without it and Chewy came to the rescue. I can’t believe how fast they got it to me. Thank you Chewy!

    Lactated Ringers

    By dave on Sep 28, 2020

    We use Lactated Ringers on an older cat with kidney problems. It's great to be able to buy Ringers at a reasonable price and have them delivered to our front door. Quite a convenience.
