Renakare (potassium gluconate) for Hypokalemia in Pets

What is Renakare?

Renakare is a prescription potassium gluconate supplement that is available in tablets, powder, and gel. It is used to treat hypokalemia (low blood potassium levels) in cats and dogs.

When should Renakare not be used?

Renakare should be avoided in pets with hyperkalemia, renal failure, severe renal impairment, severe hemolytic reactions, untreated addison's disease, acute dehydration, and GI motility impairment. In these pets, it is best to avoid potassium supplements, unless your pet's veterinarian has approved them.  

What drugs interact with RenaKare?

Ace Inhibitors (such as lisinopril or enalapril), potassium sparing diuretics (such as spironolactone), digitalis, NSAIDs (such as Rimadyl, Norocarp, Metacam, Previcox, etc), and glucocorticoids (such as prednisone or prednisolone). Your pet's pharmacist at VetRxDirect would be glad to discuss these drug interactions with you.
