Kidney stones are extremely painful and can be a reoccurring problem in dogs and cats. If your pet is prone to developing them, talk to your veterinarian about Urocit-K, a prescription preventative medicine that reduces the formation of painful kidney stones.
Kidney stones are caused by an imbalance of pH in your pet’s urine. When an imbalance occurs, high levels of uric acid or calcium in the urine can form crystals or stones that vary in shape and size. As these stones move through pet’s system they can cause pain, nausea, and other side effects. Prescription Urocit-K tablets contain the active ingredient potassium citrate, which restores the balance of chemicals in the urine that naturally stop the formation of crystals and kidney stones. The tablets are designed to release just the right amount of potassium citrate to balance your pet’s system and while reducing irritation of the digestive system. Please note: Your pet should swallow Urocit-K tablets whole, not chew them.
