Aluminum Hydroxide Capsule 100 Caps-50mg By ThrivingPets
Aluminum Hydroxide Capsules can be an effective phosphorus binder for renal failure patients that are convenient and cost-effective.
Aluminum Hydroxide is an effective phosphorus binder for renal failure patients. This product is odorless and tasteless and can be mixed with food. Aluminum Hydroxide should be administered with food. This is a dose-to-effect medication. Aluminum Hydroxide compound capsules are sold in multiples of 100 capsules and expire 6 months from the date they are compounded.
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."

We have to cut them open because our cat refuses to let us give them to him. I had to return to buy the jar of powder.
Thank you for providing feedback on your cat's and your experience with the Aluminum Hydroxide Capsules. The 50mg capsules are the smallest capsules available which should make them easier to administer but every pet is different and it sounds like the capsules were not the best choice for your cat. Aluminum Hydroxide is the most popular form of this medication and we are confident you will have good luck with the powder. Please feel to contact us by phone, chat, or email if you need anything.
