What is Potassa-Chew?
Potassa-Chew is a chewable potassium gluconate supplement for dogs and cats. It is used to treat low blood potassium (hypokalemia), which can be caused by multiple diseases. Potassa-Chew should only be used under the direct supervision of your pet's veterinarian, and only at their recommended dose and duration. Potassa-Chew is not indicated as a daily supplement in pets with normal or high potassium levels.
What benefits does Potassa-Chew provide?
Potassa-Chew can correct and maintain proper potassium levels in dogs or cats with pre-existing hypokalemia. It can also prevent hypokalemia in at-risk pets.
When should Potassa-Chew be avoided?
Potassa-Chew should not be used without a veterinarian's approval. It should also be avoided in pets with hyperkalemia, renal failure, severe renal impairment, severe hemolytic reactions, untreated Addison’s disease, acute dehydration, or GI motility impairment. Talk to your pet's veterinarian or VetRxDirect pharmacist before using Potassa-Chew if your pet currently takes ace inhibitors, digoxin, NSAIDs (such as Rimadyl, Norocarp, Previcox, etc), or potassium sparing diuretics such as spironolactone.
