Renal K+ (potassium gluconate)

Cats and dogs with chronic kidney disease or other metabolic diseases can have low levels of potassium, a mineral that is critical to the healthy function of the heart, nerves, and muscles. Renal-K is a prescription nutritional supplement that helps rebalance potassium levels in the blood.

  • Provides essential potassium and vitamins for cats and dogs
  • Helpful for pets suffering from hypokalemia and chronic kidney disease
  • Supports healthy organ function
  • Available in two easy to administer formulations

 

Veterinarians prescribe Renal K+ for cats and dogs with potassium loss, also known as “hypokalemia.” This condition can be caused by chronic kidney disease, metabolic diseases, poor diet, or as a side effect of taking some medications. Muscles, nerves, the heart, and proper fluid balance in the body all require the certain potassium levels. Prescription Renal K+ restores potassium levels in dogs and cats and improves the healthy organ function so your pet feels better and enjoys a better quality of life. Renal K+ also contains essential B-complex vitamins.      Renal K+ is available in a flavored oral gel that you can dose directly or a powder that can be sprinkled on food.

 

What you should know about Renal K+:

  • Talk to your veterinarian before using this product.
  • Follow dosing directions exactly - don’t give your pet more medication than directed and don’t skip doses.
  • Read the label carefully for information about storage, possible side effects, and drug interactions.

  • Q:

    The gel ingredients listed include B vitamins. The powder does not. Are B vitamins available only in the gel?
    Asked on 2/13/2015 by cortezcats from Cortez, CO, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      It looks like the B vitamins are in both the gel and powder, according to the bottles. For some reason it is not listed on the powder package label though.

  • Q:

    My cat is on Tumil K gel (1/2 tsp. twice a day). Would this product be the equivalent? And at the same dosage?
    Asked on 12/1/2014 by annem68 from Providence, RI, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      The dosage directions on Tumil-K gel state that each 2.34gm (½ teaspoon) contains 2mEq (468mg) of potassium gluconate in a palatable base. Dosing directions on Renal K+ state that each 2.5ml (½ teaspoon) contains 2mEq of potassium (as potassium gluconate) in a palatable base. For every 468mg of potassium gluconate, there is 2mEq of potassium. Both of these products are intended to provide 2mEq of potassium for each ½ teaspoon. Recommended dosing for each product is to give ½ teaspoon per 10 lbs (4.5kg) body weight twice daily. Speak with your veterinarian to determine if changing from Tumil K gel to Renal K gel would be recommended.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    Does the powder have a taste to it? I would feel more confident in the dosing if I could use the powder and put it in her food. She is doing very well with the gel, but she doesn't like it and I have to give her special food so she will eat it.
    Asked on 3/1/2014 by calliesmom from Connecticut, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Regina,

      The manufacturer of Renal K states the powder dosage form is flavored with fish and poultry. The gel dosage form contains 2 mEq of potassium per 2.5ml (½ teaspoon). The powder dosage form comes with a scoop which will measure out 2.2 mEq of potassium per scoopful.

      Thank you,

    My vet prescribes this to us for our cat. It's expensive and a long drive. Could they be doing something special to his Rx?Otherwise, I can buy it online.How do I find out?Thank you!

    • A:

      Rachel,

      Renal K+ is an over-the-counter pet med and is available to purchase online without prescription authorization from your pet's veterinarian.

      It is always important to consult with your pet's veterinarian before starting your pet on any prescription or OTC drug. It would also be important to ask your pet's veterinarian if they have any special instructions when giving Renal K+.

      Thank you,

Comments about Vetoquinol Renal K+ (potassium gluconate):

My senior cat has kidney disease and my vet recommended this potassium powder as a supplement. For the past four years I've been purchasing this through the vet at a significantly higher price. I was so happy when I discovered that I could purchase this at a much better price directly from VetRxDirect.

Good for senior dog's kidneys

Comments about Vetoquinol Renal K+ (potassium gluconate):

My vet recommended this to help my 14-year old German shepherd mix whose kidneys are beginning to fail--he was urinating frequently and his urine was very pale in color. I feed a dry kibble with a top dressing of canned food (meaty chunks and gravy), I put the Renal K+ on top and mix it all together and he eats it well. Since I started feeding Renal K+, he urinates less frequently and his urine is definitely yellow again.

Comments about Vetoquinol Renal K+ (potassium gluconate):

I was using the gel form purchased from vet. After reading the reviews here I ordered the powder. It is so easy to measure and dissolves instantly in the canned cat food. My cat doesn't eat around it as he did the gel. It is also much more economical ordering from vetrxdirect. Thank you!

Comments about Vetoquinol Renal K+ (potassium gluconate):

I just moved to a new city and brought my cat's prescription with me, but a new vet wouldn't fill it until an exam. My cat has been using Renal K+ powder, and has been monitored, for a few years. If I had only thought to find it online, I could have saved a lot by not paying my vet's price! Vetrxdirect has great prices and fast delivery. I'll be back to order more!

Comments about Vetoquinol Renal K+ (potassium gluconate):

This is a most excellent dietary supplement for those of us with kidney disease cats. Anything you can do to keep this disease at bay, is a big plus! I dissolve Renal-K along with RenAvast in a tiny bit of water, prior to mixing into his canned food. He is a happy and healthy boy.

Miracle Product

Comments about Vetoquinol Renal K+ (potassium gluconate):

I have 2 cats with renal failure, they get week and wobbly in their back legs, and lose one of them loses her appetite at times. You can see dramatic improvement all of the symptoms within 24 hours, especially the appetite. If the wobbling in the back legs has been going on for a long time, then it'll take a week or so to really get to work. The potassium powder is the easiest for me. No matter how finicky my animals are the powder seems to have just about no taste and they don't mind it a bit. My cats don't go for the gels and pastes out there. I would also recommend the Liqui Tinic for anemic animals, whether your vet prescribes it or not, it's a great Iron, B complex, and vitamin supplement.

PetRxDirect is the ONLY pet online pharmacy I'll ever use again. This review is about a year tardy, from my first time ordering. They are so fast with the orders, and it's like they give personal care to each order. I feel like I'm dealing with a family owned small business (maybe it is I don't know) vs a big online pharmacy. Whether that be some free kitty treats to a personal response to my email requesting a change to my order before it was shipped.

Comments about Vetoquinol Renal K+ (potassium gluconate):

I had a hard time giving my cat the Renal K gel. She didn't adjust to the flavor. So I
decided to try the powder, and it has been fabulous! I know she is getting the intended dose, and she doesn't know she is getting it. She is back to being the happy, playful
cat she was before.
