FAQ

Where are your products made?

VetriScience' products are manufactured in the United States. However, we source the raw material for our products from both inside and outside the United States. Our raw material suppliers acquire high quality ingredients from all over the world. Depending on our needs and current market supplies, a particular raw material may be from 1 country in 1 batch, and from another country in another batch. For our raw materials, we require a Certificate of Analysis, which documents the quality, purity, and potency. This qualifies each raw material before accepting it for production.Our parent company - FoodScience' Corporation - is certified to operate under current Good Manufacturing Processes (cGMP) protocols. Under these protocols, we require that each ingredient in a formula be supplied with the respective Certificate of Analysis. This means that the supplier is required to test the ingredient for contaminants, such as heavy metals, microorganisms, and other physical or chemical parameters unique to the ingredient, before the ingredient is shipped. Any raw materials that do not meet our specifications are sent back to the supplier. Upon receipt of a raw material, it is tested for potency and other parameters outlined in the ingredient's specification sheet. Test results are compared against the established specifications.

Is it ok the double the recommended dose if I feel that my animal needs stronger/better support?

Please follow all dosing instructions stated on our packaging. VetriScience' calculates our dosing strength according to the animal's weight. Never increase dosing on a nutritional supplement without discussing it with your vet first.

Consult your veterinarian to determine the best vitamins and supplements for your furry friend.

    RENAL ESSENTIALS CHEWS

    By on

    I have 2 cats that should be taking these. Unfortunately, only one of them will eat them, however, he eats them readily. It's easy to get him to take them. My other cat won't touch them so I guess it's just a matter of taste. Thankfully, VetriScience makes this in a pill form. My cat still won't take them readily and they are kind of large, but I use a pill popper to get them into her. She doesn't fight it so it's all good. Hopefully these products are doing their job. They were recommended by my vet.

    Finicky Senior Cat LOVES These!!!

    By on

    My 16 year-old Russian Blue with CKD resists pills/meds of all sorts. I've tried crushing and incorporating various remedies into her food. She won't touch it. The moment that I opened the bottle of VetriScience Renal Essentials she flew across the room and excitedly gobbled it up and looked at me for more! This is unheard of with her. I'm so grateful to have found this remedy and I can see the improvement in her right away. I'm ordering more and wishing they had bottles in larger quantities.

    Cat pill treat? ZERO Rating!

    By on

    I read another review about this product saying they were huge. Understatement. Even broken in half which you'd need a hacksaw! My 13 yr old Maine Coon is the sweetest cat and he actually tried to hide from me! NEVER IN A LIFETIME would he do that, but WOW. This stuff is awful. Smells awful. Is not palatable. What a horrid waste of money. Believe the bad reviews. My cat is not a dog you can hide this giant pill in. I tried to crush it/ mix it. It went flying. A flying pc. of pill. JUNK.

    My 6yr. girl kitty who has had decreased appetite, nausea, bladder issues among other things. She has struggled feeling well. I use various different types of homeopathic remedies for obvious ailments but they only helped to a certain degree. I feed a raw balanced diet and I knew how important taurine is in a cat's diet but only recently learned of another important amino acid Arginine!! Arginine helps the kidney's rid the body of waste and more! This supplement has increased her appetite, has improved her attitude and overall well being! Yay!!

My girl won't just come over and eat it. As with anything I start with a small amount. You never know how your pet will respond, so less is more. Gradually Increase if you see benefit. I started with 1/4 tablet crushed. I mix it with a small amount of unflavored pedialyte. Then i give by syringe to side of mouth. I notice with the very small amount she had that day she had a calmness and an increase interested in food. She now gets one pill crushed once a day. She eats, plays and overall acts better. This has been a worthy investment! A Must buy! … more

    Ridiculously large pill- cat doesn't touch

    By on

    My Cat will not touch this pill. It is so large there is no way to hide it in food. Complete waste of money, can not use it. Very disappointed.

    Tablets make administering so easy!

    By on

    I love this product because I have 5 cats and rescue others. I have been giving 2 tablets to each cat everyday for the past 4 years and the tablets make it so easy. All I do is use an Essential Pet pill gun and shoot the tablets (and other vitamin capsules I give them) down their throat. None of them object to this daily routine. I am so worried that some of these reviews may get the formula changed from the tablet. Powders never work because the cats know you have manipulated their food and avoid it. Kidney blood tests always come back good since I have used this product. My heart breaks from the cats I have lost in the past from renal problems. That is why I am so big on prevention.

    Good Purchase

    By on

    I got this product for one of my cats that has kidney problems. Since I started giving her the pills, she has more energy and seems to being happier and healthier, which is a great relief to me, because she had to have surgery for a bladder stone a year ago and I really don't want to have her go through that again. Would definitely recommend to anyone who has cats with kidney/bladder issues.

    WARNING are SUPER LARGE and SOLID HARD not made for CATS

    By on

    This company must be mistaking cats for large dogs. These tablets are SUPER LARGE and SUPER SOLID. I broke the tablet into small pieces, and still my cats were having a hard time biting down on them. JUST IMPOSSIBLE to chew by a cat. Not to mention, when you break into smaller pieces, it cracks, and you lose out on feeding your cat the amount that is crushed in the process of breaking it. Meaning, the powdered portion of the tablets go to waste. I had to use a hammer to crack the tablets. DO YOU REALLY EXPECT CATS TO CHEW DOWN ON THESE?
