    Not a big fan

    By Greentaisa on Aug 30, 2021

    I got these as I needed the lactated Ringer's for subcutaneous injection into 3 of my cats and Chewy was back ordered on the generic brand I normally order. I really am not a fan for these reasons: 1. No 50ml marks, Really? I would think that would be standard for a veterinary brand as it is not unusual for small animals to get infusions that are not always in 100ml increments. 2. Very small portal hole (more difficult to hit with infusion set and keep sterility) and the infusion set does not seem to seat as well as on the generic bags. 3. Those green plastic tabs to pry off to expose the portal.... arthritic finger killers!!! I actually use pliers to remove them. 4. I also noticed I got these as I needed the lactated Ringer's for subcutaneous injection into 3 of my cats and Chewy was back ordered on the generic brand I normally order.

Those green plastic tabs to pry off to expose the portal.... arthritic finger killers!!! I actually use pliers to remove them. 4. I also noticed no matter what I do to clamp the infusion set, put the tubing and needle above the bag, etc. for some reason the remaining fluid is lower than the mark I make on the bag from the day before. I cannot see any leaks so I am wondering if the bags stretch somehow as they are hanging. I have never had this issue with the generic Ringer's bags unless I create it by not clamping the infusion set well enough (operator error!). I guess I am just disappointed in the design of these Vetivex bags. the Ringer's itself seems to be just fine as all 3 cats seem to be doing well on it. … more

    Vetivex Veterinary DEHP Free Lactated Ringers Electrolyte injection Solution

    By Mary on Jun 19, 2021

    My cat Lara has Kidney Disease. I give her 200 ml 2 times per week and Lara is having 2 smaller pees per day. Before this fluid, she was peeing once per day and she would cry for sometime before she went pee, which was probably causing her pain. Now she doesn't cry before she goes pee. I am also giving Lara Gabapintin, 100 mg 2 times per day for all pain to include arthritis.

    Just like the fluid from the vet.

    By Maya on Aug 19, 2021

    Same thing at a much lower price, which means I can afford to have the vet tech administer fluid when I can't.

    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.
