Potassa-Chew is a Potassium Gluconate supplement for use in dogs and cats with potassium deficiencies.
The Potassium Gluconate in Potassa-Chew can help easily manage hypokalemia. A common cause for this condition is chronic renal insufficiency resulting in excessive amounts of potassium being excreted in the urine and a parallel inability to absorb enough from the stomach and intestines. Since Potassa-Chew has a great taste, it makes it easy to manage the hypokalemia associated with renal insufficiency in dogs and cats.
Dosage and Administration: The suggested dose for adult cats and dogs is one (2) tablets per 10 lbs. (4.5 kg) of body weight twice a day. The dosage may be adjusted to satisfy the patient's need. It is best to check with your verinarian for proper dosing.
