    Medical supplies in a clutch

    By on

    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!

    Damaged shipment received

    By on

    When the shipment arrived, the box was wet and inside the packing was minimal for 6 bags of the lactated ringers solution. Only had manilla paper packing...3 wads. NO shrink wrap. One of the bags was leaking and almost empty. Not the first time it has happened. I emailed them with pictures and am still waiting for a response after 3 days. My pet depends on this liquid.

    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.

    CUSTOMER SERVICE-BAD

    By on

    Chewy's Customer service for handling pharmacy orders is not very good. Customer service people do not know what they are talking about and hold time is terrible. Finally got to speak to real person in the Pharmacy.

    Does the trick!

    By on

    I recently had to start Subcu fluids for my dog and this is the product my vet uses but much less costly than what I paid my vet. My dog definitely feels better after her infusion. Easy to read dosage markers, also.

    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.
