Support your pet's kidneys with Epakitin
Epakitin 180 gm is a nutritional supplement for dogs and cats that uses Chitosan to help support kidney health and limit the amount of phosphate absorbed by your pet's intestines.
Chitosan is a naturally occurring polysaccharide that is derived from shrimp and crab shells. It binds phosphate naturally and may help lower elevated levels of phosphorus in the blood.
By doing this, Epakitin may help slow the progression of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).
This supplement is available as a highly palatable powder that is added to your pet's food. Epakitin can be used in combination with a low phosphorus diet designed for pets with CKD, or it can be added to regular pet food. The manufacturer also states that Epakitin is compatible with any renal care diet or treatment, but always consult with your veterinarian before starting a new supplement regimen with your cat or dog.
1 gm of Epakitin per 5 kg (11 lb) body weight given orally in the morning and the evening mixed with food.
One level spoonful (provided) contains 1 gram of Epakitin.
If your pet with kidney disease and elevated phosphate levels also suffers from azotemia, talk to your vet about whether or not Azodyl might also be an appropriate treatment.
