Lifesaver, Life Extender, Miracle by Kitten Smitten12/16/2008
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.
Good price by Kay from Nevada desert01/19/2012
Appreciate being able to get medication for my cat at almost half of what the vet's office charged.
Excellent product by minnmo 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.
Great!!! by charlie from Wisconsin04/25/2012
This product along with azodyl is helping my yorkie who is in kidney failure.
Great Savings by Muffin11/04/2011
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!
Helps our Benny by Robes262 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.
Epakitin and Renal Health by pjhuff 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.

I am amazed at how fast my order arrived. You are very trustworthy and I will continue to do my business with you. Thank you!
Excellent Purchase by Eppie01/18/2012
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.
