Nutritional supplements for your pet's kidney health
Epakitin, 300 gm is made with natural Chitosan from shrimp and crab shells to help dogs and cats suffering from chronic kidney disease (CKD). The Chitosan in Epakitin binds to phosphorus to reduce excess levels in the blood (phosphatemia) and help improve kidney function. This may help slow the damage caused by this progressive disease. While CKD is incurable, nutritional supplements like Epakitin and other medications and therapies may improve the quality of life for your cat or dog.
Epakitin, 300 gm is available in powdered form and is highly palatable. Simply add it to your pet's food. Epakitin can be used in conjunction with low phosphorus diets designed for pets with chronic kidney disease, or it can be administered with regular pet food. The manufacturer of Epakitin also states that this supplement can be used with other renal care treatments like Azodyl. However, be sure to consult with your veterinarian before starting your cat or dog on any supplement regimen.
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 suffers from phosphatemia and azotemia caused by their chronic kidney disease, ask your veterinarian if Azodyl might be a suitable treatment along with Epakitin.
