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
Great product! My Havanese had his 6 month follow-up today after having surgery to remove stones. The xray & the urinalysis were still clear! Thanks for making this great product available! 04/02/2013
Surgery avoided! My 10 year old bichon had one surgery for bladder stones and had more stones form and was headed for surgery #2. I started her on your product and 3 months later the stones were gone and surgery was avoided. Thank you for your product. She will stay on your product for the rest of her life. 11/19/2012
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! My Havanese had to have surgery for stone removal. The first urinalysis after the surgery showed his PH level still off & crystals forming that cause the stones to form. I added the Potassium Citrate (based on the reviews I read) to the food reccomended by my vet & by the second urinalysis less than 2 weeks later his PH level was normal & there was no indication of crystals forming! Thanks for your great product & great service! 10/15/2012
Excellent product Due to food allergies, my Aussie can't eat the low-protein Rx diet that my vet recommended when he developed his calcium citrate stones. Finally switched to a grain free refrigerated food and use the potassium citrate with it. He has had no recurrence of the stones and all urine tests come back clear (even after 2 yrs). Dog doesn't mind the flavor or "feel" of the powder at all. 09/16/2012

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.

Answer: 
Potassium citrate granules are not the same as potassium gluconate gel and should not be used as a substitute for that product. Please consult with your veterinarian.
