  • Q:

    I noticed your write-up only mentions injecting cats. My vet has given me the supplies to sub-subcutaneously inject my Pomeranian twice daily at home due to a kidney problem. Can we assume the same comments apply to dogs?

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Lactated ringers solution is a product that can be used in dogs in addition to cats. This solution contains electrolytes and helps rehydrate certain pets with renal insufficiency/failure. Talk with your veterinarian about the best treatment option for your Pomeranian's kidney problem.

    • A:

      The Lactated Ringers are on a nationwide shortage right now. We usually get more every few days but it is not guaranteed. We do update the website as soon as we are able to get more in so we suggest checking back every couple of days.

  • Q:

    Can anyone purchase this fluid directly from you or only vets? My 15 year old kitty gets fluid therapy twice a week. She uses 1,000 weekly and the cost of just her fluid bag is over $33.00 per week.
    Asked on 4/3/2015 by Cat Momma

    1 answer

    • A:

      Yes, we do sell to pet owners. This does require a prescription so we would have to get it approved by the veterinarian. These fluids are also on a nation wide shortage so we can only fill 4 bags per pet every 4 weeks

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    measuring from the mark of "9" on the bag, to the bottom of the bag, is that considered 200 ml?
    Asked on 3/11/2015 by moreron21 from cleveland ohio

    1 answer

    • A:

      Each bag contains 1,000 ml so from the 9 to the bottom would be 100 ml.

VetRxDirect is my go to for the Lactated Ringers, the IV Venoset and the 20 gauge needles I suddenly found myself needing to give subcutaneous fluids to my darling 19 year old kitty with the onset of kidney disease. Subq'ing was never anything I imagined myself having to administer, but it helps my little guy so much and just knowing I have a place to obtain the necessary items, at a very reduced price, that ships quickly is such a relief!

Although the price was the best I could find from a reputable source for IV fluids and supplies, I was disappointed in the actual products received. the lactated ringers solution was not as pictured! it barely had markings to judge the amount of fluids used, it did not have the single plug for the insert of the IV set, rather it had 2 injectable plugs that I had to call to find out how to insert the IV set into. I found the whole thing rather disconcerting especially under the circumstances. When one finds that their little darling is going into renal failure and needs fluids it is dauting enough without having the vet supplies be complicated more than necessary. I didn't get what was pictured on either the IV set nor the fluids. Ok, the needles were correct. I will be using a different source next time. I'm having a terrible time judging the amount of fluid being given, something I didn't have a problem when getting the proper bag from the vet - the one that is pictured.

Comments about Hospira Lactated Ringers Solution:

My cat was diagnosed with kidney failure two years ago and needs subcutaneous fluids once a week. It's much less expensive to get the fluids myself vs. from the vet's office so I use VetRx Direct. I've ordered this product several times and have never had any issues.

    • I use for our cat with kidney disease

    Comments about Hospira Lactated Ringers Solution:

    We use the LRS for our cat with kidney disease. The quality of the product has always been great and with giving her subcutaneous fluids regularly, she has lived way longer than what was expected. Without this service we wouldn't be able to afford to do this for our cat that I've had for 19 years.
