RenaKare (Potassium Gluconate) Powder is prescribed to help correct low potassium levels in both cats and dogs. Potassium deficiencies are common in dogs, and they’re particularly common in cats. Your pet may lose too much potassium through his urine and through his gastrointestinal tract. Pets who don’t get enough potassium through their food may also need a potassium supplement to help regulate those levels. This powder is easy to administer, and your vet may have you mix it into your pet’s food to help prevent any stomach upset.
RenaKare is a potassium supplement for use in potassium deficient states in cats and dogs.
