Recommended by my vet for my cat that is in the stage of renal failure where phosphates are high. It has done wonders. The calcium carbonate in it settles his stomach and other component lowers his phosphate. He is eating and doing much better.
I have been giving this to my 17 year old cat for 1 year - ever since the vet told me he was in advanced renal failure. After his 1-year check-up last month, my cat has improve. The Dr. seemed pleased.

Powder form not a winner for a picky feline
from Gold River, CA02/21/2013
Not your fault, but getting a finicky cat who hates kidney diet food anyways is not going to go for powder-- either in wet food or dry. Might be better for the manufacturer to put the product in a condensed pill form. I realize that other cats would have a problem with this, but at least we should have a choice. And since kidney disease is a common affliction in aging pets, it's not as if the product couldn't be marketed successfully. Or better yet, get pet food manufacturers to add a food line that includes it in the formulation.
Epakitin for cats
I have been ordering this from Entirely Pets for a couple of years for Nala. The price with shipping is the best I've found online and much lower than local vets. Delivery is always speedy. I'm completely satisfied with Entirely Pets.
Helps our Benny
from Chicago IL02/12/2012
Benny has CRF and this stuff helps him a lot.
Our vet recommended that we use it for him as there is basically no other treatment. His coat filled in and he's put some weight back on. If it helps to keep him with us for only a while longer, we will do whatever we can for him.
Just what the "Doctor" ordered!
I was pleasantly surprised to find this product available on line through Entirely Pets. My cat was recently diagnosed with kidney disease and EPAKITIN was suggested by our vet, in addition to prescription food. Not only was the cost considerably cheaper through Entirely Pets, but the supplement was received through the mail very quickly. I will continue to check this site for our future pet needs.

I highly recommend Epakitin for cats with failing kidneys. My older cat, with failing kidneys, has been on Epakitin for almost 2 years. When I first found him, and took him to our vet, she didn't think he had long to live. Between Epakitin, quality canned food, and Renafood from Standard Process, 'Shadow' beat the odds. Every day is a gift. Your pet is worth it!

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.
We are using this as another support mechanism along with Azodyl for our cat with kidney disease.
My cat likes it
by Susan in Norco
from Norco, CA10/28/2013
It's a good phosphate binder and my cat likes it. Her phosphate is still in normal range after a couple of years of this once daily with her canned food.
I highly recommend this product.My cat has kidney failure and though this will not cure it ,it has helped him greatly .
I was told my 5 yr old himalayan cat would probably not survive the weekend. That was 3 months ago. Her phosphorous level is NORMAL after being very high before the Epakitin. I put it into empty gelation capsules as she doesn't eat canned food to sprinkle it on.
Was so happy to find this product online as I feel it helped save my cats life,a lot of the vets have not heard of it.It was used on my cat by a vet in Bradenton,Fl. but I was unable to find it on the east coast. Thanks so much!!
We have been using this product since our cat was diagnosed with a kidney disorder at the vet's suggestion. Anything we can do to help him live normally is worth getting.
Definetely a great product
from San Diego, CA03/03/2013
This has improved my Labrador's kidney function tremendously. He has gotten his appetite back, increased his weight, feels and looks so much better since starting Epakitin twice daily in November of last year. Before, he had to be syringe fed with a lot of struggle. The best supplement ever. I truly believe in it!
Epakitin and Renal Health
from Apopka, Florida11/13/2011
After reading previouss reviews regarding the use of Epakitin, and after consulting with my veterinarian, I purchased the small size bottle. For a small dog, this size is sufficiant to determine whether or not your pet will tolerate having it put in their food. My dog has a very "iffy" appetite at this stage of her renal disease, so it's been difficult to determine whether or not it's doing any good yet, but she doesn't seem to mind it in her food.
Renal values staying the same
Since starting this and azodyl, my girl's blood work is staying in the same range so her kidney function is NOT declining like it was before starting epakitin and azodyl!
from North Brunswick, NJ11/07/2011
I have been giving this to my dog along with Azodyl for over the last 2 years. At that time the Vet said she only had 3 months to live and she is doing great and going strong just reaching her 17th birthday! I believe this product has helped.
from Nevada desert01/19/2012
Appreciate being able to get medication for my cat at almost half of what the vet's office charged.
Cats w/renal issues can eat their favorite foods!!
by Molly cat
Cats with renal issues can eat their favorite foods. Just sprinkle Epakitin on food and they can enjoy as usual. Molly has been on Epakitin for 2 years with no problems. She is 15 years old and doing well.
from Sunnyvale, Ca.09/15/2014
I give my older cat Epakitin for her weight and it really helped her appetite. Would highly recommend it. She has gained a little which she really needed.
saved my cats life
from Cedar Rapids, IA01/12/2014
This product brought my cats blood levels to a manageable range and drs. gave him (maybe) a year. It's been 2 now and his levels are even better. It has no taste or smell so any cat will eat it in his food.
Was a bit concerned to find the product had gone up in price considerably but I'll continue using..
Best thing for CRF in Animals
This product is a very good product. My cat is 16 years old and has been on it along with the azodyl for 3 years. He has been in CRF for 4 years. This stuff is truly amazing!!!! I would recommend it to everyone that has and animal with CRF.
Saved money by purchasing through Entirely Pets. It is the same product that I have been buying through the vet. It is nice to save money and still give my sweet old dog the medicine that she needs.
This product along with azodyl is helping my yorkie who is in kidney failure.
Good for diabetic cat
by Diabetic Cat Owner
Helps lower phosphorus in Diabet Cat food
best price on the web
This is the best price for this product I have found and even with the regular delivery it gets here really fast my dog is doing so well on this product so far so good anyways
Our pet has been on this product for over a year and after continually paying the monthly price the Vet charges, I decided to search online. I found your site to be the best overall pricing. I purchased double the order for a slight amount over the price of one. The shipping was immediately. I am completely pleased with your site; the ease of ordering and the correspondence from it. Thanks!
Hoping it will help

Epikitin was recommended by both a holistic veterinarian as well as the traditional veterinarian to help support my cats kidney function. It is easy to use. I simply mix it with his food. He is a picky eater and doesn't seem to mind the taste and much easier than giving him a pill. I am hoping to see improvement in his kidney function, but already I see that he is appearing more playful and energetic. There hasn't been much change in his blood work though. I am very happy that it was available through entirely pets.
Works for cats with renal issues
When our aged cat was diagnosed with early stages of chronic renal failure 2 years ago, our vet recommended Epakitin and also, a prescription dry cat food for kidney health. We immediately began giving our cat the vet recommended amount of Epakitin daily on her canned cat food. She is a picky eater and had no problems eating her food with the Epakitin supplement. However, she really didn't like the prescription dry food so we still have to mix in a little of her old dry food in with the prescription food. After 1 year on the Epakitin and prescription dry food, her urine test came back normal and her weight loss has slowed. Her activity level increased shortly after we started her on the supplement, we noticed. We highly recommend Epakitin as a supplement for cat with renal issues. Our cat is acting like a much younger cat now.
Excellent product for pets with kidney issues
I've been giving this product to my senior cat for about 2 years. She's almost 18 years old. She has chronic kidney failure and this product plus a lower protein diet is supporting her kidneys. I recommend this product for pets with kidney failure to prolong their life.
They can eat regular cat food.
My 14 year old cat has early renal failure. By adding Epakitin she can eat regular cat food-dry or wet. No need to look for a presciption food she likes.
This was recommended by my vet for a cat with kidney failure. He is doing very well and I feel part of his wellbeing is due to this product
a supplement my kitty will take!
by Snow Kitty
from upstate NY03/01/2013
My 16 year old cat, Cookie has CRF. She's about 2 years into the condition and Epikitin mixed in her wet food is the only thing I use regarding control of it. She won't eat the special diet dry or wet foods for her condition. She's stable and doing well given her age and the CRF. She's holding her weight, etc. which is important in a CRF cat. Epikitin is helping her maintain a stable, good quality of life with a condition that is progressive and has no cure.
Can't get my cat to eat low protein, low phosphorus prescription food. I don't even know why they sell it. In researching, since cats are meat eaters, some vets think that the protein is okay and to cut the phosphorus. Epakitin is a phosphorus absorber. Works well but should be monitered by a vet as calcium can build up in the blood and that can be harmful too. Mixes in food and cat doesn't mind it.
