Phos-Bind product overview – Rx Vitamins for Pets


Phos-Bind is aluminum hydroxide. We’ve had it ground to a very fine, floury consistency. Aluminum hydroxide has no taste at all. If you’ve been using a liquid aluminum hydroxide solution, like a Maalox-type of product that has a mint flavor and you’ve been receiving a lot of poor compliance from the use of that, especially in cats, I suggest you give this a try. It mixes in very well with dry food. For instance, we recommend the shake & bake approach, where you take the day’s ration of food that you’re going to be administering, put it into a baggie and then put the day’s dosage of the aluminum hydroxide into the bag, do this shaking action, and the oily digest that coats the kibble will have the aluminum hydroxide adhere to it. It has no taste and this will help with your administration of the aluminum hydroxide. Again and again, studies have shown that it is the phosphorus, the elevated phosphorus in the blood that drives all of the adverse uremia and azotemic symptoms that we see in the chronic kidney disease patient. By controlling phosphorus, both through diet and through a phosphate binder such as the Phos-Bind, you can get better control over the symptoms and extend the lifespan of your chronic kidney disease patient. Phos-Bind comes in two sizes, a larger 200 gram size for the larger dog patient and a smaller 45 grams size for the feline patient. The 45 gram size is about enough to medicate your average 5 kilogram cat at a 100 migs per kig per day for a month.

  1. Can I add a little of this with 1/8 tsp of zeolite clinoptilolite in my cats wet food 1 time a day or will it interfere or interact?
    I was using zeolite clinoptilolite for both my cat and I before she was diagnosed with beginning kidney disease. With good results for both of us! But after diagnosis….I quit using zeolite

  2. Can Phos bind be used with renal feline?
