Hypokal Potassium Cat Supplement 100 Tablets

Hypokal Potassium Cat Supplement 100 Tablets

An aid in the treatment of potassium deficiency (hypokalemia) in cats.

Potassium, the most abundant intracellular cation in the body, is responsible for the normal functioning of a number of vital cellular processes.

Depletion of potassium stores may induce a wide variety of abnormalities in cats.

These include muscle weakness, renal dysfunction, cardiac dysfunction, weight loss and anaemia.

Hypokalaemia (chronic potassium depletion), a result of inadequate dietary potassium intake relative to excessive urinary potassium losses.

This been shown to be significantly associated with:

  • Chronic renal failure
  • Hepatic disease
  • Systemic infectious diseases
  • Neuromuscular or CNS disease.

In potassium supplementation therapy, the use of the gluconate salt is important as clinical pathology results indicate that potassium chloride will cause a hyperchloraemia and metabolic acidosis.

Clinical impressions have consistently shown a significantly better improvement with the gluconate over inorganic salts.
