Renal K + (Potassium Gluconate) Powder
I have been giving Renal K to my cat for more than a year now. He is dealing with hyperthyroidism, hypertension and a heart murmur. For a 17 year old, he is doing very well. I also hydrate him every other day. He was not doing well a year ago and I thought I was going to have to put him to sleep. But we discovered the potassium deficiency and it has made a tremendous difference. I have recently begun purchasing from VetDepot for his medications and it has been a great relief for my pocket book. They are efficient and prompt and since the meds are delivered to my house, it saves me a 35mile round trip to my vet. Thanks much VetDepot!
Renal K+ Powder
Marley, our Besenji has Fanconi syndrome and requires potassium for which the vet gave us Renal K+ gel. He hated it...to the point that if he even got a taste or whiff of it, he wouldn't eat his food that we mixed it with. We then decided to try Renal K+ powder, and we mix it with fish oil, add warm water and then his dog food, and he loves it. Licks the bowl extra clean! Thank you.
Seems to be working!
My vet recommended this for my cat's low potassium level. At the check-up his levels had raised. The vet just told me to give him a little more than I was giving him to reach the optimal potassium level. Also be sure to buy online because my vet was selling this to me for $29 per regular size gel (you can find the gel here too). The price online is approximately one third! You can't beat that.
Treat for Tina
I really can't say what the results are since our cat, Tina, has not had another blood test. However, I'd like to pass this on....at first I thought I'd made a mistake in buying the powder instead of the ointment since Tina would turn her nose up at the powder sprinkled on her kibble. So I later held the open container under her nose to see if she'd turn away. Instead, she started walking in circles, meowing excitedly. A brainstorm....I put a small amount on a saucer with a tsp. of water. Suspending the powder in a small amount of water was perfect; Tina enthusiastically lapped it up. So every morning and night she gets her "treat" and we're both happy.
