Product Description:

•  Great-tasting, easy-to-administer powder.
•  Can be used alone, mixed with regular food or in combination with a prescription renal diet.

Chronic Kidney (Renal) Disease (CKD, CRD) is one of the leading causes of death in dogs and cats. In North America, it is estimated that 8% of cats aged 10 years or more suffer from CKD. CKD affects approximately 2.4% of dogs aged 10 years or older. The diagnosis of Chronic Kidney Disease is generally based on low urine density and the increase of creatininemia, uremia and hyperphosphatemia, as well as clinical symptoms. By the time these symptoms become noticeable, serious damage may have occurred. Only when 75% of nephrons are no longer functional can clinical and biochemical signs of CKD be detected. While chronic kidney disease is incurable, adding Epakitin to the diet enables you to protect the renal function of dogs and cats better than ever. It is possible to slow down the auto-destructive cycle of CKD and increase life expectancy by limiting the increase of phosphatemia, with the help of a low phosphorus diet and/or by adding a phosphate binder to the diet.

Epakitin is a chitosan-based nutritional supplement that is both a phosphate binder and uremic reducer. In clinical trials chitosan has been proven effective in decreasing phosphatemia, as well as reducing urea and creatinine blood levels.

I really appreciate the availability and pricing of this product. My 22 year old cat depends on it. I must add that you have been more beneficial to my cat and I than `1800petmeds` who have failed to supply the product in a time given fashion and instead of being apologetic about THEIR mistake, instead, were quite rude to me when I brought it to their attention. Thank you PetsTruly!

My dog has been taking Epakitin in combination with Azodyl for one year due to kidney disease. Her condition drastically improved and she`s hanging on at 12 years.

My cat has early stage kidney failure. I mix this powder in his food and he has been doing well for almost a year. Epakitin is great!
