My 13 year old jack russell has been on 1620meq of Potassium citrate for approximately 11 years. He recently had surgery on his liver and got pancreatitis. Now he is on lower fat food(vegetarian for urates) but when I give him his nightly Urocit 2-3 times a week he will vomit them back up about two hours later. He is also using Pancrezyme on his food. Any thoughts on potassium citrate and pancreatitis? Thank you.
Try administering his Urocit medication with his last meal, in order to help reduce the incidence of vomiting. If this is not effective, your veterinarian may prescribe an anti-nausea/vomiting medication that can be taken preceding his dose of Urocit. Thank you and take care.
My little pup (14 pound pomeranian-terrier) is too small to swallow these pills so my vet has told me to crush them up for him. This was working for awhile but now he's having trouble urinating and seems to be unhappy. Can someone help please?
Why is the tablet more expensive. I give my dog 300mg. twice a day. how would you give the tablet. Thanks Jackie
I posted a question earlier about increasing the dosage of Urocit-K from 1 1080 tablet in the evening as my jack russell was continuing to run less than an alkaline urine in the morning. Thank you for answering my question by having me consult my vet. I spoke to her and she said increase by 1 540mg, so now he gets one 1080mg and one 540mg each night. He will be 13 in June and has been on potassium citrate since he was about 1.5. Are there long term problems with this much potassium citrate either in his kidneys or being stored somewhere in the body? Thank you. The two pills make a 6.8-7 urine in the morning.
Answer:I knew if you contacted your veterinarian that your pet would be helped. As to your concern about potassium levels over time, I would suggest that as long as your veterinarian is doing periodic blood tests that will measure potassium (as well as other electrolytes), you should have no concerns about long term use of this product.
