ThrivingPets Aluminum Hydroxide is a phosphorus binder for cats and dogs with renal failure. This product is odorless and tasteless- making it a great choice to mix into food or administer with a treat. ThrivingPets Aluminum Hydroxide powder is the most popular form of this medication and currently has an expiration of May 9, 2021. The technical name of ThrivingPets Aluminum Hydroxide Powder is Dried Aluminum Hydroxide Gel Powder, USP. Because ThrivingPets Aluminum Hydroxide Powder is measured and packaged for each order it is not returnable.
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 100 teaspoons of powder in the 200 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- Aluminum Hydroxide Dosing

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."
