Wonderful for my Picky Kitty!
<p>I have a 16 year old cat that recently started having kidney infections. My vet gave me the gel form of this and it helped her greatly but she hated it. I hated giving it to her thru a syringe and it smelled like maple syrup. She would gag and run from me if she saw it coming. So my vet got wise and told me to try this powder form. Amazing! Smells a bit "fishy" but so easy to mix in with can food. My kitty eats it right up! So far so good! Would recommend!</p>
My cat prefers the powder to the gel
My cat had an adrenalcortical carcinoma which was depleting her if her potassium. After an adrenalectomy and two weeks of renal k she is acting like a kitten. Pre op potassium level was 2.4. Two weeks later, 3.6. The vet gave me the gel version of this product and that became a struggle after she stopped taking pain meds and realized i was putting something in her food. I put the powder in with her wet food and she gobbles it up, didnt even notice something was mixed with her food!
My cat was diagnosed with a low potassium level and the vet prescribed her the Renal K+ gel. She didn't really like taking it. But I noticed that she took her powder arthritis medicine on her food without any issues so I decided to give this product a try.
It works so well.
I tried multiple forms of potassium gluconate for my cat. This one mixes best with wet cat food (the gel was too hard to stir in). If it seems a bit dry after stirring, a tiny amount of water mixed in will help. I love that this product dissolves well in water as it is really a crystal, not an anhydrous powder. The only reason I gave less than five stars is that sometimes my cat won't eat the food, but it also has another one or two medicines mixed in, but no pattern that I can tell for when she won't eat it. At least this form is cheap enough that I don't mind wasting a little every so often.

I have 2 cats that get Renal K in their moist food and have never had them turn their noses up. That's important since they need it. Easy to use too.
