Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver! 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cat would not eat it. My cat ultimately had surgery. Cost much $. Tried to give as a preventative. Would not have it.

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.

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.

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.

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.
