Used in conjunction with Azodyl for my min pin. Has worked to make her more active and more like herself, so very worthwhile.
First recommended by a vet., to help with kidney decline, my Siamese is now 20 and seems to be doing well, Thank God! I also give Lactated Ringers every other day.

I've bought this in the past and it seemed to have helped. So with 2 felines newly diagnosed with CRF, we are using again, this time with Azodyl too. Hoping to see good results,

EPAKITIN FOR CATS
MY CAT IS 16 YRS YOUNG, LOL HE WAS VERY SICK AND HAS KIDNEY PROBLEMS. MY VET TOLD ME HE HAS TO BE ON EPAKITIN FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE. WELL HE WENT FROM 16LBSS TO 10 LBS. WE HAD HIM ON A IV DRIP AND PRESCRIPTION FOOD FOR THREE DAYS. I BROUGHT HIM HOME AND STARTED WITH THE EPIKITIN. HE IS EATING WELL AND DOING HIS DAILY FUNCTIONS. HIS ENERGY LEVEL IS UP AND HE IS PUTTING ON SOME WEIGHT. I BELIEVE THE EPIKITIN IS HELPING HIM RECOVER FROM THIS TERRIBLE SCARE I EXPERIENCED. HE HAS NO PROBLEM EATING HIS FOOD WITH THE EPIKITIN SPRINKELD ON IT. HE IS LOOKING GREAT FOR A CAT THAT WENT INTO KIDNEY FAILURE.

I am seeing amazing results with this powder. My old boy is active and his coat is so shiny. He is almost 15, but acts like a kitten. I was surprised how easily he took to it, because usually he is so fussy about weird food, so either he likes the taste or doesn't even notice it. I just mix it in with his wet food with a little warm water, and he eats right up. I am just so thankful I found this product and totally recommend it.
Same brand that I purchased at my local animal
hospital and at a much more reasonable price.
This was reccommended by the vet and so far it seems to be helping him and the price is at least a third of what it was at the vet for the same product!
haven't used yet

Need instructions on how much to give a 7 pound poodle.
vet highly recommended this
My 16 yr old cat is in early stages of kidney disease. My vet highly recommended the Epakitin, and said he has had many patients that the progression of the disease was much slower than normal. He attributes this to the Epakitin supplement!

Good price and fast delivery...Sure beats the price the Vet charges.
So Far so Good
from New Jersey04/15/2013
Previously used Azodyl capsules for my male cats renal failure. They are more expensive and had to be opened to mix in the food because our cat will not take the capsules not even in a pill pocket.
The Epakitin is less expensive and comes already in a power form that mixes in the wet food so easily. Also, there is no need for refrigeration and the added cost of shipping with ice packs. The smaller container v.s. the 90 capsules of Azodyl seems it would last twice as long.
Definitely, give it a chance.
Very fast shipping and so much cheaper than the vet's office. Thanks so much!

My 20 year old cat has kidney problems and the Epakitin has seemed to help her. She used to throw up alot and that has been reduced considerably since I have been giving her Epakitin. The really good thing is that she will eat it on her dry food. Sheis a very picky eater and she can not taste it on her food!

My pets are thriving with the supplements from Vetoquinol and Entirely Pets. Easy to administer, great results - just what the doctor ordered without a huge vet bill.
from Gretna, VA08/22/2014
A little over a year ago, my cat was diagnosed with renal failure and was only given a 50% chance to live. It was a hard decision but I was not ready to let him go so my vet suggested I try this product to help with his kidney function. Now, he is normal and you wouldn't even think anything was wrong with him. I am so thankful for this product. It has really helped him and given me a little longer with my baby. I highly recommend this product if you have a pet with a similar diagnosis.
Glad I found this
This was recommended by my vet for my dog with chronic renal failure. Since starting epakitin she seems to be doing well & doesn't mind the taste when mixed with her prescription food. Entirely Pets has good pricing and service for this product, the vet charged almost triple for the least amount of epakitin compared to what I have been able to purchase here for the same price. I hope Entirely pets can keep the price low
worst customer service
somehow my order sis not have my complete address on it so after 1 1/2 weeks the product wasn't here I did not receive a call from them I had to do the follow up, they said they could not remail it until they received it back so when they did get it back I talked with them online and for ANOTHER 5.95 they would mail me my order by this time my dog had been without the epakitin for a week I WILL NEVER USE EP AGAIN the product is good but EP has poor customer service
seems to be just fine
lot cheaper getting this here rather than thru vet
Chronic Renal Failure (CRF) or kidney failure.
My cat was on her last leg, sleeping all the time, no energy, wouldn't eat, using the litter box was her only activity. She is up and going again, eating, coat looks better and she has gained weight. This product works. Sweetie is 17.
This product has definitely made a difference for my elderly cat with kidney disease. I am sure it has extended his life. He is now 20 years old and still doing okay, considering he has had kidney disease at least 5 years now.
Save your cats life
This is helping my old cat live a little longer he has kidney disease without this I don't think he would still be with me. Great stuff

We wish we had this in 2005 when our 16 year old kitty Cleo passed away from CRF. When her sister Shorty was diagnosed in Oct. 2005, we were told she might have a month or might have a year. Well, she made it to age 19 1/2 in Sept. 2008 (3 years later!) and we're sure that Epakitin is the reason. We added the Azodyl last year when we became aware of it, so that may have helped too. We mixed both in with grain-free Wellness brand food to reduce phosphorus and toxin buildup. And NO dry food, big no-no! Good luck, and bless your sweet pootie or woozle.

My lhasa apso was diagonsis with CRF 2 1/2 yrs ago and since he has been on this I think its helped a great deal....He is also on 1/4 tab. of Enapril for his heart....The Vet that I am going to says he doesn't know how my dog is still alive???
They have come along way with Meds for our furry friends.....
Our terrier was diagnosed with kidney failure and by supplementing her diet with Azodyl and Epakitin, she is doing amazing! She is able to walk with us twice a day, has a great appetite and is enjoying a quality life.
A life saver!
This has saved my dogs who has kidney problems life. Along with his special diet.
My 15 yr. old corgi is in moderate stage kidney disease. After adding this to his food, he seemed to feel so much better. Three months later he is still with me, we thought we were going to have to put him down 3 months ago.
Recommended by my Vet
Both my cats were started on Epakitin and it seems to be helping. It helps slow down their kidney disease.
the same product I rec'd from my cats vet
from Mohave Valley Arizona12/05/2013
Epakitin- this is amazing and I'm so happy with the same product and good service that I can depend on. Epakitin is helping my 17yr cat with her kidney problems. I can afford this by getting it from entirely pets. I was so Upset with having to pay so much from my vet. I didn't know how long I could keep getting it that way because of cost. So my Cinnamon thanks Entirely Pet for saving her life for a few more years. Cinnamon is very special to me also. thanks
You saved my cat

My cat was loosing a lot of weight and wouldn't eat. With special food and this powder he is himself again! Thank you, thank you!
cured my cat's kidney failure
from Orange, CT12/29/2013
I simply mix a spoonful of Epakitin into my cat's wet food. She eats the mixture without any problem so I assume that Epakitin must be tasteless. It mixes quite easily without any lumps or texture problem. Since my cat, Pinky, has been taking the Epakitin her laboratory values have reverted from kidney failure to normal over a period of approximately 9 months. I would recommend this product highly.
caring for aging cats
Epikatin was recommended by my vet. It is more reasonable to purchase it online. It has helped my cats in kidney failure to have a more comfortable life.
Worked great, my pet's vet recommended
My pet's vet recommended this for my older cat with kidney disease when his phosphate levels got higher. My cat got several extra months of good quality life using this. Ask your pet's vet 1st.
by Adele Amore01/17/2008
My cat was in serious trouble with CRF. After giving her Epakitin she gained weight her numbers went down and she is doing very well. I also give her Azodyl. It is two and one half years since diagnosis. She also gets RX Benazapril daily one quarter of a tablet. The Vet said this is to reduce blood pressure which affects the kidneys.
by Triple D04/19/2013
This nutritional kidney supplemental helps support kidney (renal) function with no side effects. Our dog was waking us several times a night to let her outside to urinate. We took her to our vet who suggested using Epakitin. Wow, after about 1 week she was and still is sleeping through the night. We use it with her food both with her AM and PM meals. Entirely Pets has a better price than our veterinarian.
by fashion lady10/23/2012
Epakitin really works well for binding the phosphates and removing them from our dog who has renal failure.
My cat was diagnosed with CRF four years ago, and I firmly believe that this product has helped keep her with us for so long after being diagnosed.
My dog is in early kidney failure, since starting epakitin his kidney funtion test have improved.
very good service
I have been very happy with my purchases from entirely pets. My cat has kidney disease and the Epakitin has been helpful to him.I have been very happy with how quick my order gets to me.I highly recommend using Entirely pets for all your pets needs!
My cat is doing better
This product has seemed to stabilize my cats kidney condition. It is not a cure, but he seems to be doing better and feeling better since taking this. He has been taking it for 15 months - 9 months longer than we thought it might live before he started taking this.
My vet recommended this product for kidney problems. I thought it was a good idea, rather than switching to a "kidney" food that my dog wouldn't like. I just sprinkle this over his regular food. It apparently has no taste because my dog doesn't seem to mind it.

The shipping is very fast and never have to worry about getting it on time.
Wish I could give 10 stars
from Asheville, NC02/11/2012
I have a cat that is 18 1/2 years old. Even though she was diagnosed with kidney failure over two years ago, she has normal phosphorus levels and is still alive. One of the main reasons is this Epakitin. She has wonderful quality of life, and very rarely vomits, since her phosphorus is normal. I highly recommend this product for cats with kidney failure.
Great turnaround time.
from Winter Springs, FL04/25/2013
This site provides easy purchasing and gets items out in a timely fashion. Thank you!!
Recommended by my vet - so worth the money! My English Setter would most likely be gone except for the diet change we made. We use KD canned prescription food with Epakitin twice a day.
Simply the best!

If anyone out there needs this product for their
dog or cat, this is the best price I found anywhere.
I was paying double the price at the vet for 1/3 the
Has kept my cat healthy
This was first recommended by my vet to control my 18 year old cat's kidney disease. I add it to his moist food twice a day. Does not change the taste of his food. Have used Epakitin for over a year with great results and it is much less expensive buying through Entirely Pets than a vet.
Love our cat

from Burbank CA01/06/2014
My 17 year-old cat, Mickey, was diagnosed with Stage 2 renal failure. He was looking so thin and scruffy. I began using this product, adding it to his meals twice a day. It took a few weeks, but I began to see the changes. His appetite increased, and he had more energy. He began to put on weight and groom himself the way he once had. It has been amazingly beneficial.
been using this for past year half,it helped my cats lot.Its worth every penney and entirely pets has best prices, quick shipping.
