Description

Comprehensive support in a tasty liquid for cats & dogs with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) or otherwise low blood potassium levels. RenaKal™ provides potassium, amino acids, iron and B-vitamins to help manage your pet's symptoms and improve their quality of life.

  • Potassium is vital for the normal functioning of muscles, and has a huge impact on heart health & circulation. Too little potassium in the blood results in a condition called hypokalaemia, and there can be many causes. In pets with CKD, too much potassium is lost via the large volumes of dilute urine, and due to lower appetite, too little is taken in with their regular food. The most common sign of hypokalaemia is muscle weakness, and shows through difficulty walking and the inability to lift their head up. Once diagnosed, it can be managed with daily supplementation.

  • Essential amino acids have wide-reaching benefits. Loss of muscle is common in pets with CKD, so RenaKal™ provides a source of amino acids (the building blocks of protein) in small but significant amounts, to help with protein production & maintenance of muscle mass. Amino acids also support many aspects of health, including function of the kidneys and immune system.

  • B-vitamins and iron help to boost energy, appetite and vitality. In pets with reduced kidney function, B-vitamins are lost via urine and cause a host of problems. They are key players in energy production as well as many processes which keep pets feeling well and happy. Iron deficiency in CKD is most often caused by reduced appetite. Low iron levels result in pets feeling lethargic and weak, and further reduces their appetite as they feel increasingly unwell but luckily this vicious cycle can be improved with a dietary supplement.

Important information:

Please ensure that you only feed RenaKal™ to your pet after your vet has diagnosed low blood potassium levels. Amount fed should be adjusted based on the degree of potassium depletion, under veterinary direction.

RenaKal™ contains 234mg/ml ionic Potassium (Potassium gluconate). It is designed to provide long term nutritional support to pets with chronic kidney disease/renal failure, or those with conditions which also result in low blood potassium levels.

Use with caution on animals suffering with cardiac disease. Do not feed to animals where high potassium may be encountered.

Feeding Guidelines

Shake well before use. Give 2ml per 4.5kg using the built in measuring pipette 1-3 times daily, or as recommended by your vet.

Verified Purchase

By Stephanie-Anne Poulton on 24 November 2019

We bought this to see if our cat would take to it like the Kaminox. All the ingredients are the same and the vet said to give it a try but it is much thinner than the Kaminox so doesn’t hold to wet food as well as Kaminox does and it smells different. Took some coaxing to get a fussy and poorly cat to eat his food with this one but there were occasions where it wasn’t a problem. Unfortunately with the amount of medication our cat has we can’t afford to waste not take the risk of him not getting the 3x daily potassium he needs for his condition. We’ve had to quite drastically change his routine over 4 months so his dislike to the Renakal may just be his pickiness. Not a risk we can take. The pipette in the lid was also tricky to use as it didn’t pull the 1ml measure and when you need 2.6ml that’s a long time to make a cat wait. All in all it did the job of keeping his potassium levels up when we got it in to him but it’s just not palatable for our kitty

VioVet's Response:

Hi Stephanie, Thank you very much for giving us your feedback on RenaKal. We're really pleased it kept his potassium levels up when he ate it - it's a shame he isn't as keen on it! The key ingredients are the same however the flavouring and texture can differ between leading brands and our own brand versions, so it can be more difficult to change when pets have affected appetites due to ill health. We hope you were able to use a good amount of it (or perhaps the odd 1/2ml combined with his Kaminox would disguise the taste but help him use the rest). Thanks again - we will take everything on board! Wishing you both all the best!
