For every cat that takes POTASSA-CHEW there is one less client that has to pill their cat.

Renal disease can only be diagnosed after 75% or more of the kidney is impaired.
Testing blood levels for potassium is ambiguous at best as only a small percentage of potassium is free in the blood stream, which means that an animal can be losing potassium at the cellular level without this loss appearing on a blood panel.
Many cats and dogs with minor renal damage may lose potassium through the urine. This may cause the animal to be listless, have a poor hair coat and not want to eat, they just don't feel good.
Most clients and veterinarians attribute this listlessness and weight loss to old age.
However it may be due to a loss of potassium.
Oral potassium supplementation is very safe. As long as the animal is not completely blocked they are able to excrete any excess potassium through urination.
Many animals when put on a trial of potassium for one month show marked improvement.
Improved well being, increased food consumption, some animals react like kittens and puppies.
Potassium supplementation will not improve kidney function; however it may slow the degeneration of the kidneys. This may add years to the life of the pet, making the owner very happy.
