While there is no cure to chronic kidney disease (CKD), studies have shown that it is possible to slow down the auto-destructive cycle of CKD by limiting the amount of phosphorous in the system. Epakitin contains chitosan, a phosphate binder, which helps slow down the increase of phosphatemia in the kidneys. Chitosan also reduces urea, creatinine and calcium absorption, without affecting your pet's food consumption. As a result, Epakitin safely and effectively decreases the kidney's workload, which supports normal renal function and helps relieve the effects of kidney disease. The highly palatable powder is also safe to use with other therapies, and easy and convenient to administer to your dogs and cats.
