Easy to administer
by Six cats and counting
We use this potassium gluconate powder for a kitty who has IBD and requires extra potassium. The powder can be dissolved in water and administered with a baby medicine dropper or sprinkled into wet food. It apparently doesn't mess with the flavor enough to put off the cat. It is very convenient and much better than having to pill him with a rock-like potassium pill that might upset his stomach. Comes with a measuring spoon and lasts for months. It does not contain B vitamins as the Web page states.

We have two 17 1/2 year old sister cats with CRF, one worse than the other. Loss of vital nutrients and minerals through constant urination is part of the misery of this disease. The necessary elements of food is washed out of their systems and weakness and weight loss is the result. Losing potassium is a special concern especially for muscle wasting. Renal K+ has been an excellent supplement to alleviate this problem. I give it to the girls twice a day and it has kept their potassium levels within the normal range, nothing short of a miracle. Thank you so much for such a wonderful product.
great potassium gluconate supplement
Found Renal K powder on internet while looking for pill form for my 10 year old Maine Coon. I was tired of "wearing" the liquid potassium supplement he was taking and hated. I sprinkle the amount my vet recommended on his moist food, twice a day, and he eats without a problem. His potassium level has improved and is in normal range. Manufacturer has an 800# and is really helpful if you have any questions.
Vetoquinol Renal K+

I have been used this product for over a year, and it has really helped my cat (confirmed by bloodwork).
Great value for the money.
Affordable, Works a Well

We have a Stage 2 CRD kitty who has to have Potassium supplementation daily. He's been on the Vetquinol Renal K+ for many months. It's cost effective and easy to dose. Has the added benefits of Vitamin B12 supplementation which helps keep his energy up. We just mix the Potassium into his food and he doesn't even know it''s there!
Cat refuses to eat food mixed with Renal K+!
from Chester, VA05/30/2014
Not only did he refuse to eat his cat food mixed with Renal K+, he refused to eat a new helping of food after his dish was thoroughly washed.
We had to use a different plate!
Note: this product, in my opinion, should Only be used under the guidance of your Veterinarian. That said:
to assist cats, who are potassium deficient.

Very happy with the Vetoquinol Renal K+ powder. My cat doesn't even know it's in his food.
My 16-year-old cat has kidney disease. Her potassium levels sunk below normal. My vet put her on the gel version of this product, but she refused it. We switched her to this powder version and began sprinkling it on her food twice a day. It's a month later and her potassium levels are back to normal. Even better, she likes the taste of this product so much that she licks her plate clean and has begun to gain weight.
Finger Lickin' Good

Chemny has perked up immensely since he started to use Vetoquinol. The product mixes well with his soft food and he seems to enjoy the flavor (he's not a fan of soft food). Plus, his checkups show the product is helping his blood chemistry.
My cat has a low potassium level, so this powder works well. I simply sprinkle it on top of her food.
she eats it only because she has to, but it's the same way with the gel which is maple.i can't hold her down to give her the gel. lol
Good Price & Lasts A Long Time
I've been buying the Renal K for awhile now from Entirely Pets. My Vet offered me the gel which costs alot more and I go through it in a couple of weeks. So, the powdered Renal K is less expensive and it lasts for a month or so.
from Powhatan, VA07/02/2012
The vet prescribed Renal K for my 15 yo cat. She has low potassium and high blood pressure. Spike is starting to get her muscle mass back. I was so happy to find Renal K without having to get a prescription for it. Spike went in for her checkup today. She is definitely doing better. No it did not happen overnight. Thank you for offering this product at a price I can afford.
Renal K Powder is a Godsend!

I was at my wits end with an elderly cat who has kidney problems that deplete her potassium and Vitamin B. Got Tumil K powder from my vet and spent eons of time trying to disguise the awful taste so she would eat it in some sort of food. Found the Potassa Chews online that said they were palatable and got them. They still tasted bad and I could not get her to eat them. This has really no taste. I can put it on anything I can even mix it in her canned cream evening treat! Ohmigod what a relief! This stuff is great!
My old cat has kidney disease and the Renal K+ was recommended by my vet to normalize her potassium levels. I sprinkle a tiny scoop on her food with each meal. She doesn't even know it is there, and her potassium levels continue to improve.
Tastes Good and Works Well
I waited until after my cat's latest blood test to leave a review. The vet said 'whatever you are doing, keep doing it". Her potassium had been low, and the vet had given me huge tablets that freaked her out and a gel that wasn't much better. In desperation I found these sprinkles on line and tried them out. She eats them without complaint and evidently they work just as well as the vet supplied meds. Will be buying more.
This has kept my 14-year-old cat's renal function stable for 2 years. Her labs have not changed and the progression of her kidney disease has stopped.
easy to give, cats like it
My 3 senior cats take this potassium supplement per our vet's instructions. It's easy to give - I just mix it in with a portion of their canned food, and even my pickiest cat doesn't mind. It makes a huge difference in how they feel. Thank you entirelypets.com for carrying this!
