55 Help for my 12 year old girl
Verified Purchase

By on 9 November 2020

Excellent for encouraging my dog to eat but most of all it's a great way to hide a tablet in. Lil is almost impossible to administer tablets to but just pop a small amount on a teaspoon, pop tablet(s) on top and down they go!!

55 Our Picky Hound when mad for this
Verified Purchase

By on 14 December 2018

Our greyhound/Lurcher went completely off his food, refusing to eat anything for nearly a full week from his bowl.

He went mad for this gel. This stuff really helped get him to eat kibble from his kong at least before we could get him to the vet who was able to put him on appetite stimulants. We're now using this to get his weight back up and he put 2kg on in a week with help of the tablets and the Pro Gel. Which is was relief I can assure you!

Hound and Lurcher breeds are notorious for going off their food or being picky, but he chose this stuff over the chicken or tripe!

FROM BIRTH?

Ash

Please can you advise if this suitable from birth? I have weak, 10 day old bulldog puppy.

Many thanks

Yes this supplement can be used in dogs of any age, including a 10 day old puppy. It is not a replacement for milk though but helps by providing extra energy for your pup.

CKD and pancreatitis

Jane

Hi
My dog has stage 1/2 ckd as a result of acute kidney injury this summer. He is very prone to pancreatitis and gall bladder issues. Would this be safe for him, please? He has lost weight as we tried to adjust his diet which is home cooked as he can't cope with commercial ckd foods. He developed B12 deficiency for which he is having injections. Would an alternative supplement be better?

  • VioVet Staff

Ideally your dog should be on a prescription kidney diet only if possible as the kidney disease is likely the more important problem to prevent. If this is not possible then you can add kidney specific supplements such as RenaKal and Ipakitine/Pronefra to a non-prescription food to help to make it as 'kidney safe' as possible. However this should be done only alongside your vet's advice.
Pancreatitis complicates things as it will make your dog very sensitive to any dietary changes you make. The VetCal Pro Gel High Calorie supplement is great for helping put weight on but I would avoid it's use in a dog on a prescription kidney diet or in a dog with pancreatitis. Any dietary changes can set off a bought of pancreatitis, but diet changes high in fat are particular risky.

If you are looking to help put weight on and can't use a prescription diet then a product like RenaKal is a really good idea. It contains amino acids that help build muscle as well as ingredients to support the kidneys. It does contain potassium though which needs to be carefully managed in an animal with kidney disease so I advise discussing it's use with your vet first.

Shelf life + suitability

Hope - Liver shunt kitty

  • VioVet customer since 2016
  • From: Somerset, United Kingdom

Would this be safe to use as a supplement for a 6 + week old kitten with possible liver shunt that is still bottle feeding and fussy on her milk and weaning foods? My concern is she may not get enough calories to maintain her weight as her activity increases.

  • VioVet Staff

This is a high energy supplement and not really ideal for your cat. If she eats this, she might be put off other foods and then perhaps not get enough of the other nutrients she needs. I would suggest a general B vitamin supplement, then liquidised foods as needed.

Can this be given to ckd cats

Sonia Smyth

  • VioVet customer since 2015
  • From: Lancashire, United Kingdom

can I give this to my cat she has chronic kidney disease and her appetite is poor, is this gel ok to give to her without damaging her kidneys.

  • VioVet Staff

This could be suitable to give to your cat as a supplement on occasions, though it is not perfect as the only food. Ideally your cat should be on a commercial diet intended for this condition. The main thing is that your cat does take in enough food to maintain bodyweight, so you could weigh her periodically and decide if you need to add this.
