    Excellent prevention I have used this with 2 Bichon's, dudley was the first and he had to have the stones removed surgically and when I switched vets my new vet recommended Potassium Citrate, I mixed in with his food and he never had a recurrence of the stones even though I was told he would. When my second Bichon Daphne got bladder stones we started using this product and testing her urine every year, her tests have always come in good and at 12 years old her stones have not gotten any bigger and we avoided surgery. 01/19/2015
    This product has eliminated further urinary stones Our dog had a severe case of urinary bladder stones 3 years ago. Since we have begun a regiment that includes potassium citrate granules mixed in his food once per day, he remains clear of stones. 01/18/2015
    won't have anything to do with it I would like to return didn't use it -my dog doesn't like it at all 10/04/2014
    A Dream Come True! Our Baby Girl was a stray and adopted us nearly a year ago at the approximate age of 9 months. Knowing she lived outdoors alone for that long we took her to a vet to ensure she was healthy enough to introduce into our home to live with our two adult cats. She was given a clean bill of health and we proceeded with her vaccinations and scheduled her to be spayed. Unfortunately the surgery did not go well for her and she returned home extremely ill with bacteria growth, a massive UTI, crystals and she was altogether in shock from the treatment. We were horrified and took her to a new vet for care. After spending thousands of dollars on many tests, prescribed foods and rounds of heavy antibiotics she was still battling the same issues of crystals, UTI's and blood in her urine. Her little 8 lb body was diminishing daily and she was hiding from all contact. I felt so bad for my Baby Girl. I researched and researched so many homeopathic methods to try to help her and ran across this powder. She is now on her second container and she LOVES IT! No more UTI's, no more crystals!!! She has more than doubled her weight and is playful and social. It is like having a new cat!!! I have a friend with a very elderly cat who's health is rapidly declining and I gave her a little to try for a week and within a few days they are seeing positive results as well. I would definitely recommend this product! I mix this into the wet food but honestly she would eat it right out of the container. My other adult female tried to chew the new container open when I left it out in her reach because she enjoyed the taste of it as well. Just can't say enough good things about this! Thanks!!! 08/04/2014
    Cats wont touch the stuff Cant tell if it works or not, cats wont touch the stuff to eat it. I've mixed it with various wet and dry foods but they just wont eat it. Guess they think it tastes odd. 09/16/2013

    My cat has struvite bladder stones. The canned food by Hills, S/D is too nasty for any animal. What else can I feed her to help the stones dissolve? Will the potassium pills work with Struvite Stones?

    Answer: 
    Potassium Citrate will raise the pH of your cat's urine. That would only aid in the formation of Struvite. If you feed your cat something like methionine it will help to lower the pH (making it more acidic). As to whether this will work in dissolving the stones, you can try it and see. I think it's worth a try.

    My dog has allergies, wheat may be one of the irritants. The potassium citrate has helped her with stones but the wheat may be irritating her skin. Is there a potassium citrate without wheat as an ingredient?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not have an over-the-counter Potassium Citrate without wheat as an ingredient. You are able to look into Pala-Tech Potassium Citrate as that does not have wheat as an ingredient.

    My dog is diabetic and just had some calcium oxalate stones removed. I'm considering this supplement to prevent the stones from returning. Can a diabetic dog take this supplement?

    Thank you.
