Description

Epakitin for Dogs and Cats Your pet’s kidneys are constantly cleaning their blood. As your pet ages however, the performance of the kidneys can diminish. This can lead to Chronic Renal Failure (CRF) or kidney failure, a leading cause of illness in dogs and cats. Signs of CRF can include a loss of energy in your pet, drinking excess water and urination, and ultimately a loss of appetite. It can be a sad, slow process to witness. There is help however, with Epakitin.

Epakitin for Dogs and Cats from Vétoquinol USA, Inc., is a nutritional supplement that can help slow down the progress of chronic kidney disease. Epakitin comes in a powder form that is great tasting for your dog or cat. When used with a prescription renal diet, or mixed with your pet’s regular food, Epakitin supports kidney function safely, and effectively. Its effectiveness and ease of use makes it a popular choice among owners looking for CRF relief for their pets.

With Epakitin for Dogs and Cats, your pet will begin to regain energy, will feel better and live longer. There is hope for pets suffering from kidney disease with easy to use, safe and effective Epakitin for Dogs and Cats.

  • Nutritional supplement for cats and dogs to help slow down the progression of chronic kidney disease
  • Great-tasting, easy-to-administer powder, just sprinkle over dry food or mix with a small amount of canned food

    keeps our cat going
    January 14, 2017
    Despite the somewhat gritty texture (that softens with wet food) our kitty doesn't even know it is in his food. He went from a very sick cat to one that is stable and much healthier. I highly recommend this for cats with kidney disease.

    Kidney Changes
    August 14, 2015
    About a year and a half ago my 17 year old diabetic kitty was diagnosed with some kidney changes...fear of beginning stages of CRF. Azodyl and Epakitin were recommended, along with Enalepril RX to take pressure off of his kidneys....I'm very happy to say, we just had a checkup and there were no significant changes...so our boy is holding his own!!!!

    Life saving
    March 31, 2015
    I was devastated when my sweet kitty was diagnosed with renal failure. My vet told me she only had a few months to live. I did a lot of research and decided to start her on Azodyl and Epakitin at the same time. Normally, I would have tried one first, then added the other if necessary, but I had no time to waste. Within a few months, her kidney function tests were completely back to normal. My vet was totally shocked. Her kidney function remained normal for the next 3-4 years and she continued to take these 2 medications every day. I couldn't get her to take the Azodyl capsule, so I called the company and they said that opening the capsule and sprinkling it on her food was better than nothing. So for 3-4 years I would sprinkle Azodyl and Epakitin on her wet food every day and she took it, no problem. Eventually I lost my baby to lymphoma at 16 years old, but these meds gave me at least another 3-4 wonderful years with her.

    Reduced My Cat's Phosphorus Level
    November 6, 2014
    My CKD kitty had a phosphorus level of 15 (dangerously high). I used this product in combination with aluminum hydroxide and his phosphorus is now within normal range. This product also binds toxins so kitty feels better. Excellent product!

    EPAKITIN FOR CATS
    September 14, 2014
    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.

    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.

    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.

    Great Purchase
    January 6, 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.

    cured my cat's kidney failure
    December 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.

    the same product I rec'd from my cats vet
    December 5, 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

    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.

    Epakitin
    April 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.

    So Far so Good
    April 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.

    Good Product
    March 5, 2013
    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.

    January 18, 2013
    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!
