Vetoquinol Epakitin Supplement for Dogs and Cats

Epakitin for dogs and cats is a nutritional supplement designed to help slow down the progress of chronic kidney disease.

Epakitin comes in powder form and supports kidney function safely and effectively. Just mixed it in your pet's food to support safely and effectively support kidney function.

For even better results, we recommend using Epakitin in combination with PET | TAO Kidney Treats for dogs and cats

Chitosan, the active ingredient in Epakitin, is a natural polysaccharide derived from shells of shrimp and crab.

Chitosan naturally binds phosphorus. Binding the phosphorus, in turn, limits the absorption of phosphorus from the intestines. 

And, that limitation helps pets with chronic kidney disease by slowing down the damage caused by the disease.

In addition, decreasing serum phosphorus levels and has been shown to reduce urea and creatinine levels.

Supplementation can be lifelong, and there are no reported side effects.
