Support your pet's kidney health with Epakitin
Epakitin Nutritional Supplement, 2.16 oz (60 gm) is an over-the-counter supplement that is intended to help support kidney function in dogs and cats with chronic kidney disease (CKD). This palatable powder contains Chitosan, a naturally occurring polysaccharide derived from shrimp and crab shells. While there is no cure for CKD, the Chitosan in Epakitin works as a phosphate-binder to reduce elevated phosphate levels. This may slow down the destructive progression of CKD and improve your pet's quality of life.
Epakitin, 60 gm is simply added to your pet's food. It can be used with special low phosphorus CKD diets or your pet's regular food. The manufacturer also states that Epakitin can be used with other kidney disease therapies, including Azodyl. Consult wtih your veterinarian before beginning a new supplement regimen with your car or dog.
