For dogs and cats that need a potassium supplement mixed with a B-Complex vitamin, the Vet Solutions Renal K+ Gel is the answer. Delivered as a gel, the product can be easily squeezed out in minimal amounts to provide sample for your pet to taste and acclimate to. Once your dog or cat realizes the material is palatable, the supplement can be delivered through an oral syringe or a common tea spoon, depending on the animal. Vet Solutions Renal K is made with water, potassium, maple flavor for sweetness, citric acid, various components for vitamin ingestion, and other artificial sweeteners. Designed to work as a supplement, the product helps pet owners solve potassium deficiencies in both dogs and cats. With a normal dose being 2.5 ml, Vet Solutions Renal K’s 5oz package provides more than enough supplement to last for a good month cycle, being delivered twice a day. Pet owners need to be careful with using a potassium supplement prior to discussing the matter with their veterinarian. Some conditions can actually become worse in a cat or dog with a related supplement. Prior to a dosage being provided, a veterinarian consultation can avoid a serious mistake with your furry friend.
INDICATION: For use as a supplement in potassium deficient states in cats and dogs.
DOSAGE: Each 2.5 ml (1/2 teaspoon) contains 2mEq of potassium (as potassium gluconate) in a palatable base. The suggested dose for adult cats and dogs is 2.5 ml (1/2 teaspoon) per 10 lbs (4.5 kg) body weight given orally twice daily. Adjust dosage as needed.
ADMINISTRATION: RENAL K+ is a highly palatable gel. Place a small amount on animal's nose to stimulate taste interest. Once initial interest has been established, gel may be administered from a syringe or teaspoon.
KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN
PRECAUTION: Use with caution in the presence of cardiac disease, particularly in digitalized patients. WARNING: Do not administer to cats or dogs with acute, oliguric, anuric or very advanced renal failure. do not administer in other diseases where high potassium levels may be encountered, such as adrenal insufficiency, acute dehydration or urethral obstruction.
Excellent product by lindiwe from San Diego, CA05/18/2013
My cat Kiawe had low potassium and this was suggested. She took it straight away and would even lick it off the syringe. I got to where I would just squirt it in her dish next to a small amount of food. It states it can cause nausea, but she never had a problem with it. Smells very malty. The next tube I got from Entirely Pets @ a much better price of less than half!. I noticed a viisble difference in 2 days time.
Very happy by PeggyC from Chicago, IL05/23/2013
Vet suggested. Great price. really helps.
Really Needed! by debthebee01/29/2012
My elderly cat needed this supplement per our vet. They don't carry it on a regular basis but was able to get one tube for her. They also did the research to find it cheaper online for me. It has been a life saver, thx!
Not best for cats by catcrazy from Palm Beach, Fl05/07/2013
My old cat was taking this with food on the vet's orders, but after he changed it to a compounded formula made to taste like chicken or fish there was a world of difference. No more trying again and again to get her to eat it, and her condition has improved markedly. May be ok for dogs, but if you have a cat, definitely go the compounded route.
helpful product for older cats by cat lover11/06/2011
My neighbor and I have helped several older pets with this product. She has a 20 year old who has improved dramatically with renal K. I had used this product on elderly dog with heart failure. She is now gone but this product helped her last year.
Priced right by S. Graham01/09/2012
This is an item that our vet said our 16 year old cat was in need of. I like this brand a lot since it is a little less stiff like some other brands as I give it to her by syringe and I am able to administer it much easier than some others. As for her liking it, it would be a no but she feels that way about them all but because it is runnier she swallows it better than spitting it out. Also the price was hard to beat on this site. Thanks.
GOOD TO WORK WITH by janalee0919 from West Chester OH06/17/2012
as always, low prices and super fast shipping. Reasonable shipping charges as well. Thank you!
Awesome Company!!! by Debthebee11/03/2011
My cat Cookie, who is 16 yrs. old, was put on this potassium supplement. I was informed by our vet that it is not carried by them regularly but I could get it online and they even did the research for me. I found Entirely Pets among others and decided to go with them due to their quick response to get it to me. I was running low and needed it fast. It came packed beautifully and exactly on the day they promised! Thank You so much, I will highly recommend this product as well as your company, keep up the good work!!!
Another Fine Vetoquinol Product by Susan G from East Palo Alto, CA02/17/2013
So far, I like all the Vetoquino products,although I've only tried a few. This one is designed to restore potassium to cats with kidney disease. My cat is doing very well with supplements from Entirely Pets as they are non-invasive and she gets stressed out easily.
Great product, great price by yramt01/02/2013
When both of my cats were diagnosed as having low potassium, Renal K+ gel was recommended by the vet. As a long time pet owner, I knew that I could likely buy it far cheaper online than I could through my vet - also helpful since the vet isn't that close to home. It looks gross to me, but my cats love this; I even give the one her thyroid medicine by placing the pill in the gel and putting it over her food - no fights whatsoever!
Excellent value by cyberC from Naperville, Il03/10/2012
My 16 year cat requires this as a supplement and I've been ordering this for a while now. The merchandise comes quickly and the value is excellent. When I first purchased this from the Vet's office it was 3 times the price offered here. Needless to say with an ongoing supplement, price is important. Very happy with product, service and price.
Renal K important purchase! by Northern AZ. from Northern AZ01/26/2013
I almost forgot- Renal K is oral potassium- pretty much gave our dying cat new life. We would not be w/o it. A safe way to add K to their diet w/o over doing it. Check with your vet- oral is safe. We give it every other day. Our 15 y.o. cat is doing great. 18 months into kidney failure, we have a very exact regimen. Epakitin is an important part of each meal, along with Azodyl force feeding, and subQ hydration. She romps like a 10 y.o. The commitment Entirely Pets makes to customers is great. I've tried other suppliers before landing on entirelypets [doorstep] website. Cold shipping is extremely important for the Azodyl. I also refrigerate the Epakitin. Great service and prices!!!
Thumbs up by Jan01/02/2013
I've been ordering Renal K+ Gel for about a year now. It is much cheaper from Entirely Pets then from my vet and I've never had a problem with any of my orders.
by Kitty Karegiver12/07/2012
Great for young and older cats that have diagnosed health issues.
Very satisfied by Larry from Palm Desert area, California07/05/2012

Great product by donho05/22/2013
This product has helped our diabetic cat have more energy and interest in things. So happy the added B vitamins are included with the Potassium.
great product for 17 year old cat by happy from OH05/29/2012
My cat is 17 years old and was very low on potassium. This product has definitely helped him a lot! Thanks for a great product!
She likes it! by Cat Mom from Colorado06/15/2010
My 17-yr. old cat, Cassie, is the world's pickiest eater. After being diagnosed with CRF several months ago I was told by the vet to supplement Cassie's diet with potassium. I tried different brands and found that Renal K+ Gel is the only one she will eat, which I put it on canned cat food. Cassie is doing great; who knows how long she'll live now?
Reasonable Alternative by kellycoolj from WV05/06/2013
Had purchased a similar product from the vets for 2.5 x the cost! Was very pleased to find this!
Great Buy by jojo from Rochester, NY10/23/2012
Bought the first time from my Vet at $25. When next cat needed, I could not find the tube so shopped on line. Glad I did, Vet price still the same. Easy to use, mix with food. With multiple pets I try to save where I can.
Great product by DaveK from Keene, NH03/28/2013
My vet recommended this for my older cat who's had some kidney infections. This is real easy to administer (just put some in the food). NO PILLING orally (not easy with a cat!) :)
Entirely Pet price was cheaper than buying direct from the Vet. Delivery was speedy.
Thanks Entirely Pets- 15 y.o. cat younger tha ever by northern az from Northern AZ02/03/2012
would not be w/o renal K+. Vital part of our kitty's CRF regimen. Along w/ Azodyl, and other supplements she's improved be be full of energy & life. We've tried other suppliers- Entirely Pets is the best! Would not be w/o them as a supplier. See azodyl review for photos and regimen info.
seems to be just fine by ed from NJ10/23/2012
lot cheaper getting this here rather than thru vet
Easy to administer by Six cats and counting from Maine12/10/2011
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.
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.
easy to give, cats like it by T04/17/2009
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!

Tastes Good and Works Well by Tadpole from Texas11/06/2012
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.
Great product by philipone from Myersville, MD05/27/2013
Very happy with the Vetoquinol Renal K+ powder. My cat doesn't even know it's in his food.
Great Product!! by puttyrat 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.
