Just what the Doc ordered
We've had Reilly on this for about 3 yrs now, ever since he needed surgery for bladder stones. After surgery the vet prescribed an RX pill, once I read the precautions there was no way I was giving it my my baby...how the heck are you suppose to ensure that a dog drinks lots of water?? So I investigated on my own and found this, brought it into the vet and then started giving it twice day to my guy. We'e monitored his PH levels and all is terrific! Reilly doesn't mind it on his food, so we are happy!

Diane, Pet Meds pharmacist, recommended K Cit V plus for my cat's bladder stones. You saved her life and she is better than her normal before she got sick. This stuff works! She is back to using her litter box. No more symptoms! I thought my Lucy was doomed. God bless you Diane!

Helped my fur baby exponentially
Over the past couple of years, our dalmatian, Marshall, has been struggling with urate crystals forming in his urine. Despite being on a strict, watered-down, low-purine, (and expensive) prescription diet, his concentration of crystals remained so high that he was starting to form bladder stones. My vet recommended potassium citrate granual supplements for Marshall, and after being on them for 2 months, he’s had the best urine sample we’ve seen in him to-date, in fact the vet has indicated that not only are the crystals under control, but his urine pH is also balanced. As an added bonus, he loves the taste so much, his interest in his food is renewed and we no longer have challenges getting him to eat it with the vet-recommended water added. The only challenge we face now is keeping the cats away from his food if he doesn’t eat it right away.

It has kept the stones away!
Five years ago, my bulldog suffered from a genetic bladder stone condition requiring surgical removal. After that, the vet recommended a potassium citrate supplement for stone prevention. We have been ordering this product for over 5 years. Although the brands have changed over the years, the product continues to work and my bulldog loves the taste in his food.

Worried he wouldn't eat it
Following a very expensive surgical procedure to remove struvite crystals from my greyhound Eddie's urinary bladder, his vet prescribed potassium citrate to stop the crystals from reoccurring. I originally bought a version that didn't have the cranberry granules, which he ate just fine, but is no longer available on the PetMeds site. A person's review about their pet not wanting to eat the supplement worried me because Eddie will need to remain on this for the rest of his life. A ready, inexpensive source of the citrate is a requirement. Eddie didn't flinch. He loves the stuff. I thought cranberry would change the look and smell, but it does not. He honestly licks the bottom of his food bowl when he is done eating. VERY happy with this product.
