Description

RenaPlus is a prescription medication used to help supplement potassium gluconate. Potassium is needed to maintain overall body health, and RenaPlus provides a safe and effective generic alternative to Tumil-K. It's also available in powder form for easy administration. Veterinarians may use this to treat companion animals.

Proudly sourced directly from the manufacturer or their approved distributor. Guaranteed genuine and backed by the manufacturer.

Uses

RenaPlus is used to provide your pets with the potassium they need when they suffer from hypokalemia (low blood potassium). Low potassium levels are common in pets with kidney (renal) problems and can also occur because of other medical conditions.

Possible Side Effects

RenaPlus is generally very safe when it is used as prescribed. It can cause nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea but these side effects can be minimized when given with food

Drug & Food Interactions

Interactions have been reported with enalapril, digoxin, spironolactone, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or carprofen. Always discuss all medications and supplements with your vet before giving RenaPlus.

Precautions

Pets with high blood potassium levels (hyperkalemia) should not take RenaPlus. If severe kidney disease, acute dehydration, untreated Addison's disease (hypoadrenocorticism), or hemolysis (breakdown of red blood cells) is present, this supplement should not be given. Use should also be avoided in animals with constipation.

Also available in a powder.

    Garbage -- cat hates it, I hate it

    By Peter on Sep 7, 2021

    This gel has to be one of the worst products ever created. The packaging lies and says it is "highly palatable" but my cat hates it. She will not touch it. I even tried putting a little in a pill pocket, which she normally loves, and she would not eat the pill pocket. I need to use a syringe to force feed it to her but she still tries to spit it out, creating a mess as it is extremely sticky. She's bitten me multiple times (by accident) as I try to feed it to her. You need to be a sadist to use this gel. Additionally, it is extremely hard to ensure she gets the correct dosage because some of it always ends up on the floor. I have pills on order but until they arrive, I'm stuck with this This gel has to be one of the worst products ever created. The packaging lies and says it is "highly palatable" but my cat hates it.

    Rena Plus Potassium for Cat

    By Jaxson on Apr 14, 2021

    My cat has bad kidney function at 15, he couldn't lift his head because we stopped giving the Rena Plus Potassium to him by syringe. We started to give it to him by mixing it in his food (K/D ) and he is back to normal. Read the back of the tube to see proper dosage.

    thick and gummy

    By phyl1 on Jan 30, 2021

    I followed the directions to put some on his nose to stimulate interest. He tried to escape by running from me. So then I picked him up & tried placing some on the side of his mouth getting it partially in his mouth. I noticed it was very thick & gummy & I had trouble getting it on my finger for all of this. As soon as he got it in his mouth he was gagging & foaming so of course I immediately put him down. I had also placed some on his paw as I was desperate to get this medication in him. He completely ignored his paw, got in a chair & tucked him paw under him placing the gel onto the cushion. This was a complete fail! Thank you Chewy for resolving this & switching me to the powder.

    It does the job.

    By Alicia on Feb 9, 2020

    Would prefer RenaKare brand for the flavor. My cat doesn't like either formula but prefers RenaKare. It does the job though.
