Description

ThrivingPets Aluminum Hydroxide is a phosphorus binder for cats and dogs with renal failure. ThrivingPets Aluminum Hydroxide powder is the most popular form of this medication and currently has an expiration of January 24, 2021. The technical name of ThrivingPets Aluminum Hydroxide Powder is Dried Aluminum Hydroxide Gel Powder, USP.

Dosing

Aluminum Hydroxide should be administered with food. This is a dose-to-effect medication. Aluminum Hydroxide powder contains 1200 mg of Aluminum Hydroxide per teaspoon. There are approximately 25 teaspoons of powder in the 50 gram jar. For wet food: put the food in the serving bowl, add the ThrivingPets Aluminum Hydroxide Powder to the food, add water equal to 3 times the amount of the powder, mix thoroughly, and let the food sit for at least 15 minutes before serving. The water and letting the food sit are to help the powder hydrate and the particles to break down so your pet can't detect the powder in the food. For dry food: put the daily amount of food and ThrivingPets Aluminum Hydroxide Powder USP into a ziplock bag and shake well. Let sit for at least 4 hours to allow the powder to absorb into the oil in the food.  For dosing recommendations, please see Dr. Larry Nagode's dosing recommendations here- David Jacobson's Phosphorus Binder Page

Why ThrivingPets Aluminum Hydroxide?

ThrivingPets Aluminum Hydroxide Powder USP is pharmaceutical grade Aluminum Hydroxide. USP grade ensures the quality, potency, and safety of the product. ThrivingPets Aluminum Hydroxide Powder USP contains 1,200 mg per teaspoon- the highest concentration available. Other products in the marketplace contain only 1,000mg per teaspoon. With ThrivingPets Aluminum Hydroxide Powder you administer less powder, save money, and can be confident in the purity and safety of our binder. Compare to Phos-Bind. 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."

Because ThrivingPets Aluminum Hydroxide is measured and packaged for each order it is not returnable.
