    Recommend it
    As recommended by my vets, my renal kitties (3) get this in their canned food 2x daily. Their phosphorus levels are in an acceptable range and it does not alter food taste so compliance is not a problem.
    ProsDoesn't alter food taste
    ConsExpensive!

    Love this product!!!
    I believe that switching my cats food and this product are responsible for keeping his chronic kidney disease stable for the last 3 years. He doesn't seem to mind the taste you just have to find a good mix of food and this powder. I've found many vets don't know about this product which is unfortunate. Great product, highly recommended.
    ProsCat likes taste. Product works really well.
    ConsLittle expensive but worth it.

    cost comparison from a vet tech
    This is a great supplement for CRF. I currently use it myself for my dog. When you get it through a veterinary office, you pay generally a 150% to 200% mark up. On the other hand when you purchase online be careful to look closely at labels and distributors!! A lot of these meds that come cheap online are not made in the same countries and thereforeyou might not he getting the full ingredients at all times unfortunately.

    Longer Pet Life
    Fluffly, my 14 year old Siamese-Tabby cross, was recently diagnosed with midterm renal disease. He was placed on the Purina Renal Health Wet Food. At the same time, he was prescribed Vetoquinol Epakitin nutritional supplement 10 days ago. His appetite and thirst has returned and overall condition has improved wonderfully. Epakitin is a highly palatable product in powdered form which can be mixed directly into his renal care wet food or he will eat it as a stand alone.
    ProsHighly Palatable, Easy To Administer, Highly Effective In The Treatment Of Renal-Kidney Disease, All Natural

    For My Dog Jennifer
    This product is great, my dog Jennifer just got diagnosed for renal kidney failure, so my Vet gave me Epakitin to give her with her food, and I have seen a great difference in her. She is more alert and happy, she can go for walks again, just overall in better health. I also massage her body two times a day, she is 15 1/2 year old Beagle. I love her dearly, Gail

    Our 20 year old (yes twenty) Russian Blue has had renal issues for about 10 years and this winter was wasting away. On Epakitin he looks and acts like he is ready for 20 more!

    Amazing results
    I had been giving my cat Azodyl as he is in the early stages of chronic kidney failure and he has done so well but still needed his fluids every 4 days or so. Since I added this product he is unbelievably welll! Looks great and needs fluids less frequently!
