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."

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

Aluminum Hydroxide Powder Purchase

Very pleased with the product. So was my veterinarian. I had questions for customer service and they were very friendly and knowledgeable. I have recommended them to my veterinarian and fellow pet owners. I wouldn't hesitate to do business there again.

Thank you, ThrivingPets!

I want to give humble thanks and show appreciation to the staff person I spoke with over the phone today at ThrivingPets. He was patient and kind over the phone, and explained thoroughly about the situation of the availability of the aluminum hydroxide powder I was initially calling about. I was able to place an order of this product in the meantime, and felt reassured about the quality of this product as well.

ThrivingPets also gave me wonderful advice about what to look for/avoid if purchasing subcutaneous supplies in the future, and the differences between nausea medications.

ThrivingPets even spoke with me about kidney diet cat foods, how best to nurture my cat, and related with me on my journey to my cat's sudden pickiness over food (who has always loved all food).

I found our interaction so valuable and meaningful, as a struggling pet parent who has a newly-diagnosed chronic renal failure kitty.

Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart, ThrivingPets. Please know you made a huge impact today, and I will definitely be a returning customer.

aluminum Hydroxide capsules

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.
