Confused by Dispensing Spoon
This product comes with a dispensing spoon labelled 1/4 tsp. When compared to measuring spoons in my kitchen, this spoon actually dispenses 1/8 tsp. I saw no improvement in my cat until I used the measuring spoon in my kitchen, (under the advice of my vet).

Crush and put on top of wet food
My vet recommended these supplements when my cat started to lose weight. They seem to have solved that problem completely. He has restored his appetite and back to his normal self. I crush them and put them on top of his wet food, and he eats them without hesitation. My vet also warned me that most cats hate the taste and refuse to eat it. However, my cat does not seem to have that problem with either this brand or a generic version I used at one point (PotassiTabs). In fact, I think he now prefers his (wet) food with the crushed supplement on top; when I just put out his food, he gives me an indignant look and waits for the powder to be added!

Miraculous recovery
We thought our 16-yr-old cat had a stroke... incredibly lethargic, unable to hold her head up, difficulty moving let alone walk or climb stairs. Blood work showed all good levels except for slightly lowered potassium. We were ready to have her put to sleep, and our vet agreed, but we gave her 24 hours and started her on Tumil-K. She showed improvements overnight, dramatic improvements in 3 days, and within 10 days back to her normal activities including playing and jumping. I'm so impressed with Tumil-K I think I'll keep some on hand in case I start feeling poorly! (I grind it up and mix it into her wet food)

QUESTION
Why prescription needed?
ANSWERS (2)
Why is a prescription needed? Well, to protect your pet. Choosing the correct dose of potassium for a pet must be done very carefully. It isn't done based on body weight like other medications. Typically, labs must be done to find the serum potassium level in the blood. For this reason, it is required to get a prescription from a Vet who is qualified to evaluate the pet and determine the correct dose needed.

Potassium Citrate is absorbed differently than potassium gluconate. I would stick to the correct form and dose. I recommend consulting with your vet to see if they know of any less expensive alternatives.

QUESTION
Why would my vet recommend this to go along with steroids?
ANSWERS (1)
Steroids such as prednisone, prednisolone, dexamethasone, etc., can cause a drop in potassium levels in the body. It's possible based on the dose of the steroid, the condition being treated, and the length of treatment time, that your veterinarian is looking to prevent this drop in potassium levels by supplementing with Tumil K.

ANSWERS (2)
According to our vet, it's only available in a pill (caplet) or in a tube of paste. Many dogs seem to like the taste of the paste, but our cat hated it. We switched to the pill form and we smash each pill, grind it up into a powder, and mix it into her wet food. Doesn't even know it's in there.
