(Vetoquinol) Epakitin is a powerful tool for advanced renal support in cats and dogs. It is used to slow the auto-destructive cycle of chronic kidney disease. Epakitin is a chitosan-based nutritional supplement. It binds to phosphates in the intestinal tract to decrease phosphatemia associated with chronic kidney disease. Studies show that life expectancy can be increased by limiting the increase of phosphatemia through the use of a low phosphorus diet and/or by adding a phosphate binder to the diet. Epakitin powder can be added to your pet's regular food or be used in combination with a low phosphorus diet. Epakitin can be used in conjunction with other treatments, including Azodyl and Renal K+ for renal support. Powder.
