Description

What is Epakitin Powder?

Epakitin is a nutritional supplement powder for dogs and cats that helps support kidney function and also limits phosphorus absorption from the intestines.

For:

Dogs and Cats

Benefits:

  • Palatable easy-to-administer powder
  • Helps support kidney (renal) function

How does Epakitin work?

Epakitin’s active ingredient, chitosan, is a natural polysaccharide derived from shells of shrimp and crab. This ingredient naturally binds phosphorus, which limits the absorption of phosphorus from the intestines. This limitation helps pets with chronic kidney (renal) disease by slowing down damage caused by the disease.

Cautions:

Consult your veterinarian before using Epakitin. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is currently being given medications or supplements for kidney disease or calcium/phosphorus regulation, such as Calcitrol.
