(Kidney Support Supplement)Renal Essentials has been formulated with key factors which help maintain optimal kidney function, balance urine pH and mineral levels, normalize circulation, and strengthen the immune response to foreign material in the urinary tract and kidneys.
My cat is 17 years old and he was urinating a lot more over the last few months, and I decided to give him a supplement to support his kidneys. It has helped him in so far as the amount seems to have reduced and he is doing well.
Two Words by LJC from Florida10/26/2012
Life Saver! My cat, Lilly was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure. This vitamin, plus the others vitamins I give her have saved her life!
Does the job by Daisy from Ct02/15/2014
Using it for my elderly cat who has inflammatory bowel AND kidney disease. I give her 2 per day and she's holding steady. Vet says she's doing really well on this (along with a couple other meds). But I do think this helps.
Great Help for Renal Failure by peggythecat from Niagara Falls, NY07/16/2012
Starting giving Renal Essentials to my male cat about 5 years ago when he started to show signs of renal failure. My cat is still holding his own at 17 1/2 years old.

There is no other product like this! by Lucky Cat from North East02/13/2010
Lucky's Creatinine went from 3.8 to 2.1 in 3 months using this product in combo with Azodyl & Rubenal.There is no other product out there like this- we love Vetri-Science products!
good product by Sandikat from Western Oregon12/14/2012
I think this is a good product. Rhumania 6 is a good herb (combo) for kidney support, plus there is other good ingredients such as adaptogenic herbs and "B" vitamins. My kitties did well on these for years, then part of them didn't want them anymore. I wish they came a little softer (they are kind of hard) and in a chicken flavor maybe. They make a soft chew I can get from my vet (they like those), but the dose is twice as many, AND twice the price. A $19 bag at that dose would last me 5 days given as recommended. Plus the soft chews have added ingredients that might not be as good health wise long term. Since it's almost inevitable that most kitties will have some degree of kidney issues if they live long enough, it's nice to have something like this.
Just wish it was easier for them to chew, and a flavor more of them would eat willingly.
The only reason Freddy is alive and happy by FreddyPower06/20/2012
My cat who is 21+ yrs old started losing weight
slowly at first then started not eating and rapidly declining to the point where we thought he had only days left, after hours of frantic searching to find out if there was someway to save him I found
reviews of the Renal Essential's and with out a lot of hope I ordered an express delivery of one bottle in a 24 hour period I gave him 2 pills and he responded miraculously ! In 1 day he was eating again and more like himself and over six months later taking 2 pills a day he is alive and enjoying life:)
It works! by LML04/12/2008
My cat's BUN went from 36 to 28 in 5 months.
miracle worker by Silvana from Bronx NY10/23/2013
Years ago, my cat Alexis had kidney disease. It was in its middle stages by the time she was diagnosed. Along with traditional veterinary medical care, I also used Renal essentials as my main wholistic supplement to give her. Within a month, her labs had changed. When she got off traditional meds, we kept her on the renal essentials and her lab tests stayed within normal limits for a while. We believed this product really did it. I have another kitty now - Sabrina. She is starting to exhibit similar symptoms and I just started to feed her the renal essentials. I was just about to make a vet appt. for her consistent thirst but after some time on this, that has alleviated.
Works for my cats by Madcats from Rutherfordton NC03/13/2014
I grind up one of these pills every morning with an egg yolk and Vitamin E and give it to my old cat, Misty. She was just laying around and sleeping a lot before the pill but will now jump into my lap and play with her toys again.
Life Saver by Lucy from Halllandale, FL11/01/2011
Am very happy to have found this product. My wonderful cat Lilly O'Grady has heart problems, which can effect her kidneys. Although she has to take lasix, Renal Essentials is really helping her stay strong and healthy.
My 12 years old mix has renal disease and I put one pill in cream cheese with her other meds. So far I believe its helping her and her stool is firmer or more normal than before her diagnosis.
Cheaper Than The Vet by Fran from Brooklyn, NY03/21/2012
My dog Eddie has always been sickly, Between Vet visits and precripton dog food, I've had a very expenive time of it. I'm glad to have found your company. Your products work and are not excessively priced.
Effective Renal Treatment for Dogs by Josey from Detroit Michigan12/03/2012
My dog, Gracie, has been taking this product for 6 months now and is in better health now than when she was first diagnosed with kidney failure. The vet gave her 3 to 4 months to live and today she's happier, friskier, and more playful than ever. It seems a miracle. Better yet, her blood tests reveal no further depletion of her renal function, so we have turned the corner. However temporary, my dog's life is longer and better now as a result of the faithful taking of these supplements. Difficult since they taste so bad she will not eat them willingly. She hates the smell, too.
Great product by Jonesy from Michigan08/09/2014
My dog Lucky is 14 years old and was diagnosed with 75 percent of his kidneys gone. He couldn't drink enough water and was bloated ,
He was trying to flush out the toxins his kidneys couldn't.
Since he has been taking Renal Essentials, he isn't drinking excessive water anymore and isn't bloated. It is saving the remainder of his kidneys so I can enjoy his company a lot longer than was originally expected. I
WILL KEEP USING IT by DY from SAN ANTONIO, TX08/19/2012
ALTHOUGH OUR 5 YEAR OLD LAB IS HEALTHY, HIS BUN/UREA COUNT HAS ALWAYS BEEN A LITTLE HIGH. I REDUCED HIS PROTEIN INTAKE AND HAVE BEEN GIVING HIM 2 RENAL ESSENTIALS EACH DAY. I JUST STARTED HIS SECOND BOTTLE. HIS LAST BLOOD TEST SHOWED HIS BUN/UREA WITHIN NORMAL RANGE.
Best Purchase Ever by greyhoundlady from Manitoba, Canada10/03/2014
This product was recommended for our dog's chronic kidney disease. It is easy for her to take and is going to add quality to her life.
Necessary for Kidney Health by greyhoundlady from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada09/15/2014
This product was highly recommended to us by a world renowned vet. Our greyhound has chronic kidney disease and she needs this product for the rest of her life to give her kidneys optimum function. It is essential for her well being. Thank you Vetri-Science for helping our wonderful canine friend.
great supplement by Becky K from De Pere, WI12/04/2013
Been using this for years when I first found out about my dog having the start of kidney issues. I know it has slowed things down. Was recommended by my vet. Will use it for the rest of his life. Highly recommended!!
Off putting odor by Roxanne10/05/2011
The smoke odor is off putting. My dog will chew the tablets with a lot of coaxing. A beef flavor would seem to be a more palatable choice.
Great for pet products by Chris S from Independence, OH10/04/2011
This is the first time I used this site and was totally impressed with the fast service and very reasonable prices. I will be a continued client. I purchased the Renal Essentials for my 14 yr old dog and she is doing very well using this supplement. I recommended it to a friend who is using it also and getting good results.
please research ingredients by renee08/04/2014
This is a revised review to one that I wrote previously. After giving my 12 years bouvier this pill for the past few months, I researched the National Kidney Foundation website and they have a list of Herbal supplements that can worsen kidney/renal failure in humans. There is a long list, 3 of those ingredients: Astralagus, Nettle, and Potassium are listed in this product. If those herbs aren't safe for humans with renal failure, why would they be safe for dogs?.
by from 02/26/2014
We have given this supplement to two of our dogs over the last few years; both dogs had varying degrees of kidney failure. One outlived the Vet's longevity predictions by 4 years and the other, Fritzi, is still doing well 18 months past the time she was predicted to leave us.

Wonderful Product by Reese04/25/2013
Our 13 year old dog was diagnosed with kidney failure. We were of course heart broken and uncertain of what we could do to help him. I found this product and purchased it. Our dog was sleeping all the time and very swollen. This product has brought life back into him and alot of the swelling has gone. This is a wonderful product and I highly recommend it.
