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...
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.

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 Tessa is a very important person to me. I would spend anything to keep her healthy and happy. The Epakitin size is worth every penny and performs just like the expensive product I was getting at the vet's office.
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.

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.
from Bedford, VA10/24/2012
In combination with Azodyl, Epakitin is keeping several of my dogs alive.
Right now I give it to 3 of them and it looks like I might have to add a fourth. Epakitin is easy to give and easy to dose for dogs of varying sizes.
My small dog was diagnosed with renal failure in 12/2012. Mid-last year we started him on Epakitin & Azodyl (small caps) twice a day with food. His phosphorous count reduced dramatically & his appetite improved. I believe that these two products contributed in the improved phosphorous count which is a big problem in renal failure.

This item is awesome~ I buy this regularly for my poodle and she has chronic kidney failure. It's a great supplement that keeps her phosphorus level stable. She needed to increase the dosage recently therefore I had to order more than I normally do. Great value~
lowers triglycerides too
My schnauzer was diagnosed with hypertriglyceredemia which was causing her to be ill and have pain. The specialist recommended this product even though it is made for renal care because they found it helps to bind the fats and lower triglycerides. I am happy to say that my girl's triglycerides dropped almost 250 points in one month. We are on the right track! She has been spunkier and loving life once again.

My Vet recommended this product for my dog who has kidney problems. It has helped her
alot and she doesn't even know it is in her dog
food. I give it to her twice a day. I like it because it is natural.
from FOREST PARK,IL.02/28/2012
THIS IS THE BEST PLACE TO BUY THIS PRODUCT!
from pittsburgh pa02/06/2013
great product and great service from this company and great pricing.make sure to mix with food and lots of water.
Great (When prescribed by vet)
My dog has been on Epakitin for almost 6 years for his chronic kidney disease. This in combination with Azodyl along with a few other medications prescribed by the vet have kept him going. To meet him you would have no idea that he has a chronic medical condition.
Help for both dog and cats
from New York11/16/2012
Has helped to bring protein level down in my dog and may even be able to phase out of using this. Although costly, it does the job it is suppose to do when used properly.
Epakitin: It's uses
from Edmonton, AB08/05/2013
I can't really say I notice a change in my Pet, this was something that was prescribed to him by his vet for his kidney disease years ago. I order from this site to cut down on costs.
The way you'll know it's working is vet check ups on the levels of protein in their urine; but for the most part Kidney disease is progressive (ie eventually my cat will succumb to this disease) this is a medicine that slows the progression and keeps him alive significantly longer.
I am please with Entirely pets though, and will re-order when the time comes. (it's cheaper than the vet's, so long as you order in bulk)
from Marion, IA12/04/2012
My cat was found to have late stage kidney disease and the vet. was going to do immediate 24 hr. fluid treatments until I consulted another vet. who suggested we try this first. After the 1st month of our kitty being on this, both his BUN and Creatine levels decreased and he gained 1 lb.. It's now 6 months later and he's doing great.
I found this product on Entirely Pets at 1/2 the cost I was paying my vet. office.
It came to me by mail in 5 days. The product was a lifesaver for our kitty and the cost of the product a significant savings.
I highly rate Entirely Pets...
from Chicago, IL11/30/2013
We have a samoyed that was diagnosed with renal dysplasia as a puppy. Her kidneys are the same size a cat's should be as well as mishapen. She was not expected to live past 2 years of age. We found a nephrologist that prescibed a combination of an ace inhibitor, baby aspirin, omega 3 fish oil, Epakitin, & Azodyl. She turned 5 this past October. Needless to say, we are thrilled these products exist. She would not be alive without them.
Essential Part of Regimen
by Northern AZ.
from Northern AZ01/26/2013
Our 15 y.o. cat is doing great. 18 months into kidney failure, we have a very exact regimen. Epakitin is an important part of each meal, along with Azodyl force feeding, and subQ hydration. She romps like a 10 y.o. The commitment Entirely Pets makes to customers is great. I've tried other suppliers before landing on entirelypets [doorstep] website. Cold shipping is extremely important for the Azodyl. I also refrigerate the Epakitin. Great service and prices!
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).
Epakitin saved my cats life
from Marion, IA10/18/2012
My 14 yr. old cat was diagnosed with kidney failure/late stage and the vet. was going to administer 24 hr. I.V. fluids. I got a 2nd opinion and Sami was put on epakitin two times daily. It's been 8 months and he's gained 5 lbs. and his BUN and Creatinine levels have both come down. He would not have lived this long had it not been for this product. It's amazing how a supplement can turn a disease around.
Epakitin 300 mg
from Coldwater, MI05/23/2011
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 recommended for my dog with kidney failure. This size makes it easier to order!!
I guess my dog was already too sick. He just died last night, so I actually wasted a lot of money on this product.
from Atlanta, GA03/16/2012
My dog's Vet recommended it for her Kidney
condition. It has helped her.
This was recommended last year by our vet for our 12 year old dog with kidney problems. The dog has no problem with it and her health is much improved. We will keep ordering it. Shipping is fast and reliable.
Honestly a life saver
from Cedar Rapids, IA11/17/2013
Our 14 yr. old male cat was found to be in late stage kidney failure during a vet. visit in April 2012. His BUN read very high at 102 and CREATININE at 2.8. Those are 2 tests that show the progression. My vet. rx'd him Epakitin. His next visit in May showed a 1 lb. weight gain, BUN at 42 and CREATININE at 2.7. Today, 19 months later he is doing fine. Amazing how this powder changed his blood levels. And it has no smell or taste, easy to give to your pet. I paid my vet. $105 for a 150 gm. jar. Here I pay under $70. for a 300 gm size.
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.
Great help for dogs with CRF
from Los Angeles, CA07/04/2012
My dog has kidney disease (chronic renal failure). When he was diagnosed, he was given 3 months to live. That was about a year and a half ago. While he's still very sick and we have him on a cocktail of medicines (enalapril, iv fluids, pepcid, kidney diet), I believe that Epakitin has helped him (and us) cope with his disease. I strongly recommend Epakitin in conjunction with vet approved medication and diet. While it's certainly not a cure, it helps deal with this terrible disease.
Plus, EntirelyPets has the absolute lowest price I've seen anywhere! AND EP was recommended by the manufacturer themselves.
good cost value
from cape coral fl.10/28/2011
On time shipping and a great price.Keep up the good work.
Great product for cats with kidney issues
My 15 year old cat has had reduced kidney function for the past three years. She is not the type of cat who can be easily medicated and it was impossible for me to administer sub-q fluids. She has been doing well on the ERpakitin supplement and has actually gained a bit of the weight back that she had lost. Entirely Pets ships very quickly and if you order from them again, you will get a certain amount off your next order. My 9 month old kitten ocassionally gets into the older one's food, but the vet said the Epakitin will not hurt him. Great product and great company.
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.
from Atlanta, GA04/02/2013
My dog has been on this for about 1 yr. Has helped her kidneys a lot. Thanks to the vet that recomended it.
from Eastern Shore of MD06/11/2013
I have been using this product over a year, and it has been the deciding factor in stabilizing Kobe's Type 2 Kidney disease (he is 13 years young).
Great value for the money.
My grand dog was born with one VERY small kidney, the vet wanted to put him down. My daughter and I looked everywhere and tried all kind of natural remedies and tried several different vets, finally we were told about Epakatin from a local vet and jumped on it! That was five years ago and he is doing very well. He is on a very strict diet, but I truly believe that this product as indeed help to keep him active, healthy, and happy!
from Phila, PA10/23/2012
Blends easily in cats food, great deal !
I have used this product for three years now for my Shiloh Shepherd who was diagnosed with renal failure 5 years ago. It has kept his numbers consistent and he is doing well. It is expensive and prices vary quite a bit.
Great kidney support highly recommended for dog
by dog momma
from winston, GA06/27/2014
We use this for our 100 pound sherpherd and he has bone cancer, but is doing very well. He is 10 yrs old. This actually improved his creatine and his kidney function levels after using for 8-12 weeks a great deal!!! I love this product!!
This was recommended by my vet for my dog who developed chronic renal disease after successfully beating lymphoma. So far it is helping her kidney disease & keeping her from being hospitalized. Since the vet charges almost double for a small amount I searched for the best price & found it here at Entirely Pets. Besides being a good value, the site is easy to navigate & the product arrives promptly.
It's definitely helping to slow down (almost halt) the progression of kidney disease in my two cats.
from ny ny01/16/2012
recommended by vet for then-19-year-old cat with kidney problems. She'll be 22 in April.
Helping a lot!
from Banner Elk, NC11/11/2011
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.
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.
It really works
from Chicago, IL05/23/2013
Vet suggested. Helps a lot. Easy to use.
Have been using this product for several years, but just found it on "Entirely Pets" web sight. I am now saving over 30% over what I was paying at the vets. This medicine has aided in controlling my chocolate lab's health issues greatly. Great product at a great price. Would highly recommend this product and web site.
from Alpharetta, GA10/24/2012
I have been using this product for my 12 yr old dog that has kidney problems. She is doing very well. I have been using it for a year now.
Great product, would highly recomend it.
from Rochester, NY06/25/2013
My Doberman was diagnosed with Kidney Disease at age 6 mos. She has been on Epakitin ever since that time. She is now 7 years old, has obedience titles, and is doing great!
Seems to work
Together with Azodyl, this seems to be keeping our cats blood levels at good levels. In fact they improved since we put her on these, together with a low protein prescription diet. I could not pinpoint which has the most positive effect on her, but I'd not discontinue any. Easy to dose, just add to food.
Not As Shown!! Be Careful!!
from Kirkland, WA11/25/2014
the formula shown is NOT what is sent to you - picture shows Guaranteed Analysis of 2.8% Crude Protein but is 4.6% is what they send, a completely different mix! Not what my vet prescribed - please check your vet prescribed bottle to make sure the analysis is the same BEFORE giving to your pet!
Our vet Recommended Epakitin at the start of our treatment regimen 2 years ago for our cat Kalle (15 years old then - 17 now) for kidney failure to lower her phosphorus levels. This can slow down the progression of kidney disease. Along with treating with Azodyl and 100ml of fluids every 3 days, we are still going strong after 2 years+!
epakitin-lifesaver for my little girl
my little girl was going into crf almost four years ago at 14, she just turned 18 on 09-01-12and still going strong. her name is pretty girl(calico). my vet recomended that i start the regime, sure glad i did, she is still healthy, gets around really good and spoiled rotten. thank you for making such a wonderful product to help keep her healthy. don brewer
We took our cat to the vet hospital and she was in there for 3 days. The vet said she was not coming around very quickly but was improving. He said it was a sign of chronic kidney disease which is incurable. He told us to use this product and she improved within days. That was about 8 months ago and she is still looking healthy. Highly recommend epakitin.
Great product at a great price,
from New Jersey11/13/2013
This item was recommended by my vet for my elderly dog that is in the beginning of renal failure. It was quite expensive from my vet but is much more reasonably priced here. And I received my order quickly!
Has really helped the kidney disease
My cat's kidney values have returned to the normal range using Epakitin and also Azodyl.
by NWTN Girl
My cat of 20 years took this for 3 years and it prolonger her life. She did not like needles so this was the best treatment for her instead of subcutous fluids daily.
from Virginia Beach, VA07/31/2014
Very good product. Does what it says it will. I would consider this a medicine and only give under vet's advice ofr after consulting with the pros at the manufacturer.
I have been using this product for over a year. I believe that it has help extend the life of my sweet dog who is suffering with kidney issues. I treasure anytime she has left.
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.
Just what I was looking for
Great price on this powder. It arrived quickly and was just what we were looking for!
I am so happy to be able to buy this product from you, it is much cheaper thru this site.
Epakitin 300 mg
from Coldwater, MI10/26/2011
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 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.
from San Diego, CA03/16/2013
Epakitin has made such a difference in my dog who was diagnosed with chronic renal failure in October 2012. His appetite has completely returned from not eating anything at all for days in the beginning. I can highly recommend this product to anyone, I 100% believe in it. Thanks to Epakitin, his quality of life has so much improved.
