Rated 5 out of 5 by from works well to prevent stones Our dog was a Kidney Stone factory. She had two bladder surgeries. After using the product for 8 months she has been stone free plus she likes the taste of it so no issues treating her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what my dog needed Potassium Citrate has proven to be what my dog needed to lower her urine ph level. She is eating a canned food that is grain-free and formulated for senior dogs. All of these combined have possibly prevented her from forming bladder stones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Product This product was recommended by my vet after Lucy (schnauzer ) was operated on for stones. This was almost 4 yrs ago and she has had no recurrance and I really feel potassium citrate has benefiited her. It's easy to use and she has never shown any dislike to it being put on her food, I usually make a paste out of it with water or chicken broth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results My Beagle mix had crystals in her urine and the Vet wanted to put her on a special dog food. I asked her if there was anything else I could do. She said to try changing her water from city water to distilled water. I did that and also looked on pet meds for something else to help and found this product. Had my dog on this powder 1 scoop in morning and night. Don't know if was the powder or the change in water but last urine test she has zero urine crystals. I will keep the changes up, however I am only doing the 1 scoop at night now.

Q&A

my pomeranian weighs 17lb. The dose of 1½ scoops is per day or per each food she eats?

My dog was removed a big bladder stone three mos. ago and the vet charged me 1800 for it. He never mentioned she was supposed to be on any special diet. When I took her to the grooming asa she got in, she urinated with blood (I didn't notice it before since she does it in the grass while I walk her) and the guy told me that was a signal of a bladder stone and she would need surgery. I told him she already had it less than three mos before. Them from this guy I found out the vet was to analyze the stone to advise of food she was to eat as per the stone components. Now I don't know what to do cause I'm retired with a very limited income and don't trust that vet.
Asked by: sylvia
You may want to consult with your veterinarian and explain that to him/her. I'm pretty sure they can advise the right diet at least over the phone without charging an office visit. The Potassium citrate is used to make the urine less acidic which decreases the possibility of calcium oxalate stone formation.

my dog weighs 30lbs how long will this last us

Asked by: Sam
The manufacture states for a 30 lbs dog you would give 3 scopes daily (15 grams) which would last about 20 days per container 300 grams however you would consult your vet about the daily dosage they would recommend for your Furry Friend.

should the recommended daily dose of one scoop be mixed into a single feeding or should the dose be divided?

Asked by: Karen
I divide the dose into 2 servings and give to our cat each morning and evening. I mix it into a heaping teaspoon of canned cat food.

What about struvite stones in cat? Potassium

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?
Asked by: Red
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.
