    My dog had been put on lasix 12.5mg three times a day for congestive heart failure since December, shes on other medicines as well. She has had blood levels checked periodically since then. Some days are good and some have been better! On one of the could have been better days I took her in for a vet appt. She had blood taken and her potassium was down to 2.3!! And her renal function wasn't great. I started using Renal K, giving her a dab from my finger, sometimes twice a day. I took her back for a recheck in 11 days. Her potassium was 3.7 (normal range 3.4-4.5). her other blood levels BUN/Creatinine were better too. I was pleased,so was her Vet, and she was doing better.

When potassium gets too low, and they become dehydrated, cardiac arrythmias can occur as well as kidneys failing. She is 14 years old, but I just want her to be as healthy and comfortable as possbile. … more

  • When Vitamin K levels are low.

    By on

    My cat had low Vitamin K levels so this is what my vet recommended. She said cats love it, which to me always signals how they hate it. And this was true here. Pacey would not lick it off my finger. I was also told to rub it on his leg as we do with hairball treatment. But it stuck to his fur and I literally could not wash it out. However, I've been able to mix it in with his wet food. And to my surprise, he eats it without complaint, so I've continued to buy this.

  • A Necessary Evil

    My 17-year-old cat is borderline kidney disease and has hyperthyroidism with ongoing stomach issues. He has crashed a few times, had bouts of vomiting and dehydration, and is now getting fluids and some stomach meds as maintenance. I know his potassium is low due to all of this, and wanted to try this to help perk him up. He absolutely hates any kind of liquid, gel etc. that I have to put on his mouth or face. He shakes his head until it comes off! He does not like the flavor, either and is hard to impress. I think this is related to when he was very sick last year and on a nutracal, so he associates all pastes with the trauma of hospitalization, too.

    My elderly dog develop Cushing's disease. This disease lowered her potassium level to a point where she was lethargic. This product has gotten her back on track. And she was doing great. She even likes the taste of it.

  • I'm Impressed

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    I've started my 14 yr old cat on this. His kidneys are starting to go. He isn't in kidney failure yet, but he wasn't feeling well. This product has stopped his yowling, which was likely from pain. He has much more energy, too! Also, his appetite is back with a vengeance.

  • MY CAT NEEDS THIS TO KEEP HER ALIVE

    By on

    THIS IS THE EXACT MEDICATION I GET FROM THE VET. THAT REQUIRES A PRESCRIPTION THRU THEM. CHEWY DOES NOT REQUIRE ONE. MY VET IS USUALLY OUT AND MY SCRIPT CALLS FOR 2 TUBES TO GET ME THRU ONE MONTH AND MOST OF THE TIMES COME HOME WITH ONLY ONE TUBE THEN HAVE TO MAKE ANOTHER LONG RIDE TO GET THE OTHER. VET COST IS $50 PER TUBE. CHEWY'S PRICE IS UNDER $14!!! BEST OF ALL IS CHEWY ALWAYS HAS IT IN STOCK AND CAN ORDER AS MANY AS I WANT AND THE SHELF CODE IS AT THE LEAST 3 YRS. YAY, CHEWY!!! 10 THUMBS UP ALL AROUND WITH THEIR MANY PRODUCTS AND THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE GOES WELL BEYOND ANY CUSTOMER SERVICE I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. I RECOMMEND CHEWY FOR ALL AND EVERYONE OF YOUR PETS' NEEDS!

  • the real thing

    By on

    My 19 year old cat developed a potassium deficiency and began to walk as though he was in a lot of pain. After a lot of research I decided to try Renal K. Surprisingly the gel was quite easy to give and the flavor was palatable. Within a few days he was moving much more comfortably. Definitely a product that I will use regularly to keep the old boy happy.

  • Helps increase potassium level

    By on

    I started using this gel form of potassium a few months back for my ckd kitty. He is very finicky, yet he will lick this right off my finger. I no longer notice his head twitching lightly nor his paw. With recent bloodwork, his potassium levels have gone back into the normal range.
