Before I tell you the story about my experience with Scruffy Paws Kidney Revitalize chews I must turn this portion of my blog post over to our legal department.
This is a sponsored post by Scruffy Paws. As a happy customer of Scruffy Paws, I was contacted to write a sponsored post from my (and the Female Human’s) experiences with the product. All reviews and opinions expressed in this post are based on my purrsonal views and experience with the product.
It’s No Fun Getting Old
I know you might find this hard to believe but I am a 17-year old feline. I’ve been healthy all my life until about 15 months ago when I suddenly lost a lot of weight (and for a tiny feline like me this is a very bad thing). The Female Human took me to our vet and I was diagnosed with kidney disease. I wrote about my kidney diagnosis in my post “Jasmine’s Journey” if you want to read more.
Sometimes You Have to Do Your Own Research
The Female Human began reading all she could about kidney disease because she doesn’t just want to keep the disease at bay; she wants me to live my best life. Sub-Q fluids (every other day) and prescription kidney food (wet) are my staples but felt there was more she could do. Her research brought her to a wonderful company called Scruffy Paws Nutrition. The first thing she noticed was the vast amount of feline CKD (chronic kidney disease) information the company offered. She then read about the company itself and how they got started by seeking solutions for their own kitties. They created, with the help of science, veterinary professionals, feline experts and nutritionists are the Scruffy Paws Kidney-Vitalize chews that I’ve been taking for over a year now. And they don’t just address feline kidney issues, they also offer products for UT wellness, hip and joint vitalization, hairball control, dental powder and multi health bites. Meowza, these people are serious about feline health!
The Female Human learned much about CKD from the emails she received and by the information Scruffy Paws offers on their website. They have an e-book about CKD and a course you can take to learn more about Chronic Kidney Disease. Now this is all too scientific for this feline. I’ll let my human do the research. I’m just interested in how I feel and how the stuff tastes and I give both a paws up.
But Will She Eat Them??
The Female Human is a bit skeptical about “medicinal” chews and treats. The Tribe of Five learned long ago that pill pockets contain….pills, and that is just not going to happen. She’s had some fur raising experiences with my brother, Tucker, who takes medications. Add the fact that I too am a very finicky feline and she wasn’t too hopeful that I’d eat the treats. Still, she decided it was worth a try so she ordered the Scruffy Paws Kidney Vitalize Chews and crossed her fingers.
The first time I was introduced to these chews I looked at The Human with suspicion thinking, “This is a trick, what horrible tasting medicine is she trying to feed me?” She placed the chew at my feet like an offering and slowly backed away. I squinted up at her then turned my attention to the intriguing smell of the item in front of me. I sniffed, pawed it a bit and then decided, “This smells good enough to eat!” And eat it I did, and I now look forward to my morning and evening chew treat. Who knew?
How Does This Stuff Work?
This little feline is getting her mojo back after taking the chews for about a year. I am keeping my weight on, playing with my toys again and being my sassy self. Although the Female Human is very careful about my diet and religious about giving me fluids, she believes that the Scruffy Paws chews are an important part of my ongoing health. So, what is it about this magical product that makes it work so well? We felines aren’t that interested in science but I know your humans probably are so I had our Purrsonal Assistant do some research.
Some of the magic is in the active ingredients of Astragalus Root Extract and Rehmannia Root Extract. Both are proven to be effective, not only eliminating the symptoms of CKD but are also helpful in preventing it. (So you younger kitties, tell your humans to get you on this supplement as a preventative measure). The inactive ingredients of Carob, catnip, chicken, chicken Liver, coconut glycerin, coconut oil, garbanzo flour, mixed tocopherols, palm fruit oil, pea flour, rosemary extract, sorbic acid, and sunflower lecithin all add to make the chews effective and tasty.
Scruffy Paws Nutrition Makes Your Human’s Life Easy
Aside from the important fact that these chews keep me living my best life, the company gives our humans peace of mind too. Shipping is always free and there is a money back guarantee for all their products. And, if you order larger sizes of the chews you save money too.
The Proof Is In the Picture

My Human and I are so happy we’ve found Scruffy Paws Nutrition and we didn’t just find an awesome help for my health, we also found a community that cares passionately about felines and their humans. I hope you humans look into this fantastic company.
