Our little setters BUN and CR are going up and the vet told us to get a phospate binder. Shes only been on it for a couple of weeks. Wont know if its helping until bloodwork repeated.
It seemed to do the trick and correct the problem. but of course the cat got picky so I backed off. I will use again if the problem arrises again.
I put my 15-year old hound dog on this medicine after phosphorus levels in her blood were much higher than normal, as a result of chronic kidney disease. She has bounced back - is more alert, more playful, happier, and is eating again! I don't know if it was entirely due to this drug, as I have her on a couple of other drugs / supplements, and it might be just coincidence. But with this having virtually no side effects, it's surely worth a try!
It comes highly recommended by my vet, and just as importantly my very picky cat is willing to eat it.
Wish it would have worked. My cat could detect it on any food we tried. She is a very picky eater and other cats may have better luck with it.
This gave my dog loose stools after a small dose. Why would they put lactose in it? Dogs do not digest lactose. I recommend Phos Bind instead.
My dog will eat this without even mixing it with food,must taste really good
My vet recommended Epakitin for my cat's kidney issues. His tummy is more settled and the doctor said it's keeping his health stable. Not only is my kitty's tummy better but my little darling is happy and spazzy as ever.
My older dog has had elevated kidney & liver values for a while. My veterinarian recommended this powder, and it has helped to reduce his numbers. I just mix it in a little bit of canned food, and he gobbles it down.
Every other month, give this to the dogs. It helps, especially for one of the dogs that pees dark yellow a little at a time. His pee is clear after taking this.
