Epakitin is powder-based nutritional supplement that supports optimal kidney function and helps slow down the progression of chronic kidney disease for dogs and cats. The main ingredient, chitosan, is derived from shells of shrimp and crab and is a natural polysaccharide. Chitosan naturally binds phosphorus, which slows down the damage caused by chronic kidney disease, by limiting the absorption of phosphorus from the intestines.
Epakitin comes in a tasty powder that is easy to administer to your pet. It is recommended to use Epakitin in combination with a low phosporous diet and to contact your veterinarian before use, especially if your fur baby is taking any medications or other supplements for kidney disease or calcium/phosphorous regulation, including Calcitriol.
