Aluminum Hydroxide is a phosphorus binder for cats and dogs with renal failure. Aluminum Hydroxide powder is the most popular form of this medication and currently has an expiration of January 24, 2021. The technical name of Aluminum Hydroxide Powder is Dried Aluminum Hydroxide Gel Powder, USP. Aluminum Hydroxide should be administered with food. This is a dose-to-effect medication.

A 2001 study by Peter Markewell (BSc, BVetMed, MRCVS) for the Waltham Centre for Pet Nutrition found that "...using a phosphate- and protein-restricted diet, in combination with oral phosphorus-binding agents in those cats in which control of hyperphosphatemia [high phosphorus] and RHPTH [renal secondary hyperparathyroidism] was not achieved by diet alone, resulted in more than doubling of average survival time from the commencement of treatment."

For dosing information please see Dr. Larry Nagode's dosing recommendations here-David Jacobson's Phosphorus Binder Page

Aluminum Hydroxide powder contains 1200 mg of Aluminum Hydroxide per teaspoon. Please note that this is not how much a teaspoon of the powder will weigh since the powder is not 100% pure. To meet the US Pharmacopeia standard, the powder must be a minimum of 76.5% pure. There are approximately 100 teaspoons of powder in the 200 gram jar of Aluminum Hydroxide powder and approximately 25 teaspoons of powder in the 50 gram jar. Because Aluminum Hydroxide is measured and packaged for each order it is not returnable.
