Hello. I am so glad to hear she is continuing to do well and that she is adjusting to the sq fluids.
I have worked with a holistic vet for may years and many products on the market simply take advantage of pet owners who are tying to do anything to hep their pets. I always tell people to remember that with supplements like this what you see may not be what you get as there are no regulations on supplements nor are the any official studies. We have seen some supplements that actually have ingredients that are not approved for pets and it is very important that we remember they are not little humans and can react differently then we do.
I am going to point out some things that are huge red flags with me as far as this specific product go though I do not have actual experience with this specific one.
1.Every living being has the ability to heal itself of any disease if given the chance
.If this was the case there would be no death either in pets or humans. This statement just makes no sense and is in my opinion providing false hope when pet owners need it most.
2. No where do they give actual levels of their vit or minerals. They also never mention that Vit A, Vit D, Copper, Iron, Zinc, Iodine,sliver and nickle can all be toxic if given in to high of levels. They can also build in the body over time. When the kidneys are not functioning properly they are not filtering properly and this further increases the risks of dangerous build up in the body.
3. They claim that All ingredients are either organic or wild harvested yet there is no way to know this for sure
4. ounce per ounce spirulina has twelve times the digestible protein than beef
. Actual medical studies have proved that low protein is what we want
THe above are just a few things I see that worry me. That first statement alone would be enough for us to tell our clients to stay clear of this product and do not buy in to their hype.
Now the Coenzyme Q10 and Omega 3 fatty acid are supplements that we do recommend for our patients in kidney failure.
Here are the products we trust and carry in our office Renal EssentialsCoenzyme Q10Omegas
My suggestion if you want to mix conventional and holistic then I would look for a vet in your area that practices either homeopathic or Chinese medicine.If you need help finding one let me know.
As for what to watch for to know she is suffering.
1. Stops wanting to go on walks and is not interacting with family
3.Decreased drinking and or urination
4. She stops eating.
I hope this helps please do not hesitate to come back if you have additional questions. Give Jaycie a good pet from me.
