Tablets, Powder and Gel
RenaKare is a potassium supplement and is indicated for use in potassium deficient states in cats and dogs.
Potassium is essential in maintaining cellular tonicity, nerve impulse transmission, smooth skeletal and cardiac muscle contraction and maintenance of normal renal function. Potassium is also used in carbohydrate utilization and in protein synthesis.1 The major mechanisms by which potassium may be depleted include excessive urinary potassium losses, gastrointestinal losses and decreased dietary intake. Potassium depletion is relatively common among cats and dogs, especially cats. Fortunately, potassium supplementation is available and can prevent or treat potassium deficits. When feasible and appropriate, oral or nutritional therapy is generally considered safe, easy to administer and affordable.
