My cat loves them and I finally have a treat that is safe I can give my cat with kidney issues.
This was one of the nicest companies I have ever dealt with. They responded to any questions I had and always in a kind way.
My cat is perkier since I started giving him the Kidney-Vitalize. I only need to shake the container and he comes looking eagerly for his treat!
My cat loves them; had doubts because she is so fuzzy when you introduce a new food.

The two main active ingredients in our chews are:
Astragalus & Rehmannia Root Extracts. Both are potent 'super herbs' have been studied and shown to be effective in helping alleviate symptoms of CKD or supporting kidney health (read scientific backing section above!)
We've formulated the Kidney Vitalize Chews to be as palatable as possible. However, cats being, well... cats, means they can be pretty finicky about what they eat. So if your fur monster doesn't accept the supplement as a chew, there are several other ways to administer it:
👉 Present the chew in a pill pocket or a gel cap, then administer to your cat
👉 Cut up/Crumble the chew, and mix into your cats wet/dry food
👉 Put the chew into any kind of soft treat, or inside a piece of tuna or chicken
👉 Mix and dilute the chew in water, then mix the water into your cats wet or dry food
CKD is a heartbreaking illness. So our goal is the same as yours... to support your cats body during the tough times. Because of this, if you are having troubles administering these to your kitty.. don't give up! Try the suggestions above, and if you come up with a better way... drop us an email at email@example.com and let us know
However, if you dont want to bother with these tricks, we offer a 30 day money back guarantee - so we’ve got you covered in that regard aswell!
