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.
WILL KEEP USING IT
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.
Effective Renal Treatment for Dogs
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.

I find that this product helped my babygirl in the beginning. She resists taking the pill, but most of the time she eats/chews it. I think it is worth a try to help your pet feel better.
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
Necessary for Kidney Health
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.
Off putting odor
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.
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.
Best Purchase Ever

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!!
please research ingredients
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?.
Cheaper Than The Vet

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.
Great for pet products

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.
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.
