Description

Urocit-K helps prevent urinary tract stones and associated pain, pressure, and other symptoms in cats and dogs. It does so naturally by supplying potassium citrate to increase the pH of your pet's urine.

Urocit-K tablets contain the active ingredient potassium citrate, which restores the balance of chemicals in the urine that naturally stop the formation of crystals and kidney stones. The tablets are designed to release just the right amount of potassium citrate to balance your pet's system and while reducing irritation of the digestive system.

Key Benefits

  • Easy to administer tablets
  • Helps stop kidney stones and crystals from forming
  • Reduces urine acidity
  • For dogs and cats

How It Works

Urocit-K makes your pet's urine less acidic which helps reduce the formation of kidney stones that would normally occur as a result of high levels of calcium or uric acid in the urine. Be sure that your pet swallows the tablets whole rather than chews it. Any other specific direction should be given to you by your veterinarian.

Indications

Urocit-K (potassium citrate) extended-release tablets are a prescription medicine used in the management of two common types of kidney stones: calcium oxalate stones and uric acid stones. Urocit-K can also help treat certain metabolic problems (acidosis) caused by kidney disease.

Directions

  • Urocit-K is a prescription medication that is used in dogs and cats to aid in the prevention of urinary stone formation.
  • Urocit-K makes the urine less acidic which helps to reduce the formation of kidney stones that would normally occur as a result of high levels of calcium or uric acid in the urine.
  • Urocit-K is a controlled release tablet that should be swallowed whole. The tablet should not be crushed or chewed.

Tip: Urocit-K tablets are made up of an outer shell that contains the medication. The medication is absorbed by the body but the outer shell is passed out of the body in the stool. Do not be alarmed if you see this outer shell in your pets stool.
