What is Urocit-K?

Urocit-K is used as an aid to prevent kidney stone formation by increasing urinary pH. Urocit-K requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Cats and Dogs

Benefits:
  • Decreases the chance of kidney stone formation
  • Easy to administer tablets
How it Works:

Urocit-K makes your pet's urine less acidic which helps reduce the formation of kidney stones that would normally occur as a result of high levels of calcium or uric acid in the urine. Be sure that your pet swallows the tablets whole rather than chews it. Any other specific direction should be given to you by your veterinarian.

Cautions:

You should avoid giving your pet any supplements that contain potassium while using Urocit-K. There are possible side effects, so address any concerns you may have with your veterinarian.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Urocit-K to my pet:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given a potassium-sparing diuretic, such as Spironolactone or if the pet is being given a potassium supplement.

The tablets should not be crushed or the pet allowed to chew the tablets. Keep water available for the pet to drink.

How should this medication be given:
