my cat tested for renal failure and the vet recommened she be "put down" because there is no way to restore kidney function. I did not give up. She gave me a sample of EPAKITIN.; june of 2007 & I switched her to k/d prescription food. She rebounded plays like a kitten(she's 14) and I could not believe it so 2 mos. later she got x-rays and endoscopy'd and her kidneys were 95% perfect. I have had her on epakitin ever since and it works. I am also going to start all of my animals over 9 yrs on it.
Helping a lot!

My 5 year old Shiloh Shepherd was diagnosed with early renal failure in Jan. 2011. Since giving the epakitin his creatinine and bun numbers have come down.

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.
So far, so good
Based upon the recommendation of my vet, I ordered this product for my cat who is in the very early stages of CKD. My cat is not quite 9 lbs, so I do not use a whole spoonful, but I mix it into my cat's canned food & she will eat it. Based on the research I have done regarding the prescription cat foods for this condition, I prefer using this product instead. The last bloodwork I had done on my cat indicates this product is working to lower her phosphorous levels.
Extremely helpful in aiding my cat with her renal failure. I would highly recommend this product along with adzoyl to anyone who has a et with this condition.

This is a great product for dogs and cats going through kidney/renal failure. This has helped my dog a lot and would recommend this product for those dogs and cats that need a Phosphorus Binder. This is easy to use and dogs/cats love the taste! You will not be displeased!!

This product is a great choice offered for the money spent. This is a reputable product and I have purchased from EntirelyPets several times and have had great service. The prices offered for this product cannot be beat from where I have checked. Will continue to purchase Epakitin 300 mg from EntirelyPets. Thanks

THIS IS THE BEST PLACE TO BUY THIS PRODUCT!
Was prescribed by my vet. This cost less than what I paid for a bottle with 1/2 of what was in this one. Came quickly.
I have had my cat Misty ( 13 years old) on Epakatin for over a year now. She was diagnosed with CRF and hypertension. She is on meds for the blood pressure and is on epakatin to keep the phosphorus level stable. She has not really liked the prescription renal diet so this product has been helpful.Her recent bloodwork revealed she has not worsened at all..she is very stable with her chronic renal failure... and her hypertension is controlled well..she is a happy kitty and I am a happy kitty Mommy...
This product has had a very positive impact on the wellness of my cat with a renal failure condition. I would highly recommend it to others that have pets with a similar condition.

I have a six year old Shiloh Shepherd who was diagnosed with renal failure at age 5. Epakitin has helped him lower his creatinine and bun numbers. He is gaining weight and eating well and is very playful, all good signs.
Great for kidney issues
from Ardsley, NY03/27/2012
My vet recommended this product - which is essentially just ground-up shrimp shells - for my very old (nearly 18 years) cat who has had kidney problems for years. It's hard to tell what is making the difference for him, since he's on lots of medications and vitamins, but supposedly this really helps with kidney failure. The large size is great, but beware - it comes with a huge spoon (I had to keep the spoon from my smaller container) and the top broke off fairly quickly and is hard to get on and off. I keep it in a Tupperware. A smaller sized jar might have a different opening mechanism (the old one was a screw-top and much better).
I have used this product for over a year. You can see the results in the litter box - less urine. Together with the amazing Azodyl it has kept my cat stablilized.
Best price anywhere
from Los Angeles, CA01/26/2012
EntirelyPets has the best price for Epakitin. At my veterinarian's, 15 grams sells for about $50.
Also, the manufacturer themselves recommended EntirelyPets.
If you have a dog (or cat) with crf, you already know that the cost of caring for your pet can get ridiculously expensive. Finding deals like this takes a little bit of the sting out.
