When would I use Doc Roy’s Potassium Citrate + Cranberry Granules supplement with my pet?

Doc Roy’s Potassium Citrate + Cranberry Granules are a highly palatable supplement recommended to help prevent the formation of calcium oxalate stones in the bladder and for maintaining urinary tract health. Most calcium oxalate stones develop in cats between the ages of 5 and 14 years and in dogs between ages 5 and 12 years.

What benefit does each ingredient provide?

Potassium citrate prevents the formation of calcium oxalate stones, which are stones that can only be removed by surgery. Increasing the citrate levels in the pet’s urine results in the calcium binding with the citrate instead of to oxalate, forming calcium citrate. This is a desirable event, since calcium citrate tends to stay dissolved, whereas calcium oxalate tends to precipitate out as a mineral deposit (i.e. stones).

Cranberry extract has been demonstrated to enhance urinary tract health and will not increase the urine pH. The extract is high in anti-oxidants and it is believed this prevents the bacteria from adhering to the urinary lining and colonizing, which is beneficial to prevent urinary tract infections.

Since Doc Roy’s Potassium Citrate + Cranberry Granules contains both of these ingredients this supplement can be used more often for managing urinary tract conditions with your dog or cat compared to supplements that contain only one of these ingredients.

Will my pet eat this product?

Doc Roy’s Potassium Citrate + Cranberry Granules are flavored with a chicken liver powder that is very palatable for cats and dogs. Simply administer the granules over the pet’s food or mix with their food and watch them eat every last bit. The Granules can also be used to stimulate a pet’s appetite by using as an enticement similar to putting chocolate sauce on your vanilla ice cream. This supplement is supported by Revival Animal Health’s 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

How cost effective is this supplement?

Compared to similar products, Doc Roy’s Potassium Citrate + Cranberry Granules is very affordable, especially considering this supplement is really a “2-in-1” supplement. At current pricing, your cost is only $0.25/day per 10 pounds. Preventing stones is more cost effective than paying for an expensive surgical procedure that could have been prevented, but it is less painful for your pet.
