How to Increase Potassium Intake

Posted by Ruby Tequin on

Your pets need a great amount of potassium in order to function well. This essential mineral acts as an electrolyte and is so crucial in your furry friend's cellular and enzyme functions. A slight change of the potassium levels in the bloodstream could disrupt several bodily functions. To avoid this, pets are also required to consume a minimum amount of potassium every day. Here’s a list of foods that are rich in potassium:

  • Vegetables – Add a healthy twist to your pet's diet by mixing vegetables that are rich in potassium. These include potatoes, carrots, and beans.
  • Fruits - Banana is the most popular source of potassium. Slice a banana into tiny pieces and give them as a treat to your pooch.
  • Real Meat- Chicken and fish are high in potassium. They are usually used in many commercially produced dry kibbles for dogs and cats.
Feeding your pet a well-balanced diet is the best and effective way to avoid nutritional deficiency. You can also opt for natural supplements, such as bentonite clay, to replace the missing nutrients your pets need. This healing clay is well-known for its toxin-binding properties and mineral supplementation ideal for both humans and animals.
