Product Description:

Epakitin, a new nutritional supplement from Vétoquinol USA, Inc., safely and effectively supports kidney function and helps slow down the progression of chronic kidney disease.

  • Easy to use in cats and dogs
  • Helps pets feel better and live longer
  • 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.
