About This Item

  • 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
  • Epakitin's active ingredient, chitosan, is a natural polysaccharide derived from shells of shrimp and crab. This ingredient naturally binds phosphorus, which limits the absorption of phosphorus from the intestines and that limitation helps pets with chronic kidney disease by slowing down damage caused by the disease
  • Effective as a phosphate binder, decreasing serum phosphorus levels and has been shown to reduce urea and creatinine levels
  • Administration can be lifelong and there are no reported side effects

Our 2-year-old cat is on Epakitin for kidney failure. He will not eat wet food. We have been giving it mixed with water by syringe, but he hates that. He is good with capsules. Can we put it in capsules for administration?
Answer by ChewyJul 02, 2019
Epakitin needs to be in contact with the food for it to work. If the pet refuses to eat if it is mixed with the food, then the owner can mix the Epakitin with water in a small syringe and squirt it down the throat immediately after they eat. They will need to shake the syringe vigorously because Epakitin will not go into solution. It will only be a suspension and will settle out again.

I thought Calcium Carbonate is bad for Cats because extra Calcium is harmful.
Answer by ChewyMar 04, 2018
Calcium has many benefits such as building and maintaining of bones and teeth. Calcium also helps to maintain a regular heartbeat, muscular growth, and normal blood clotting. If the feeding instructions are followed it should not be harmful to your cat.

Why do the different sizes of this product have different nutritional levels?
Answer by ChewyOct 09, 2018
The nutritional level on the 300 gram size is different because it's based on scoop size and the scoop in that bottle is bigger. The 60 and 180 grams features a 1 gram scoop. The 300 gram features a 2.5 gram scoop.

Any idea how long a 60 gram bottle lasts at 1 level scoop twice daily as directed on the bottle?
Answer by ChewyMar 13, 2019
If you're feeding 1 gram a day with 60 grams in a bottle, it'll last 60 days.

Cat stuff for kitty

I did use this for my kitties, they can detect something and ate it anyway. I have outside cats (4) and (4) inside, noticed my one female inside cat was licking and acting weird, more then normal. So I got this product. She’s okay now but still a weirdo.

A major game-changer!

My cat Trudy just turned 8. In mid September 2021, the vet said she has ADVANCED kidney disease with very high numbers. They gave me a phosphorus binder called Aluminum hydroxide in liquid. After 2-3 weeks she threw up once every few weeks. Third time was kind of bad. Fourth throw up was Devastating and she couldnt eat. I got her to vet 12/27/21. I ordered this product after 2 weeks of NO binder. Now at 2 weeks, its great because instead of peeing 3/4 the box early a.m. she will pee 1/3 or 1/4 the box. Now shes gaining her weight back! Too much peeing is depleting. If your cat is peeing too much, you should try it. I saw results in 3-5 days and gets better.

Epakitin Powder

My dog was recently diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease and my Vet recommended lowering the Phosphorous in her blood work so I added this powder to her food to help with this process and it seems to make her alittle more comfortable.

Kidney Disease

This product was recommended by my veterinarian. I ordered it and received it the next day. I mix it in her food and she has no problem taking it.

Makes kidney diet food taste good!

Diet food for cats with kidney problems is usually not very popular with cats. My vet even said it must not taste right, I should start with mixing it with his regular food. But that freaked me out, I want him to eat what’s good for him. I found this product and decided to give it a try, mainly to mix it in with his regular food because he absolutely did not touch his diet food. When it arrived I still had a can of diet food open, and just for the sake of it mixed in the powder with the remaining diet food. He ate everything! He was gobbling it down! He now eats all his diet food as long as it has Epakitin in it. What a life saver!

seems to be working

my vet recommended this and gave me a small bottle to start with. it took a few meals for my cat to warm up to having it mixed in with his food (adding a little water seemed to help), but now he really likes it and if i forget to put it in there he won't eat his food! the hardest part is keeping the other cat away from it, as he is healthy and doesn't need this. but my old cat with renal disease seems to be maintaining with this and other meds. also, Chewy's price is much cheaper than getting it through my vet, as with just about everything.

Not for large dogs

I can’t say if this works or not because I didn’t give it to my dog. I ordered this on recommendation of my vet, not realizing that this 180 oz jar would only last 10 days for my 110lb Lab! $200+ a month is simply not doable for me! However, Chewy customer service was great as usual, providing me with a full credit quickly, and just asking me to donate the product to a local shelter.

Food and supplements from Chewy.

This supplement in addition to changing my dogs diet and seeing her wonderful vet saved my 14 year old put bull.

Big Thumbs Up

Our Golden is in Kidney Failure and our vet recommended this to help her with some higher phosphate levels in her blood. We haven’t had another blood test yet but this must be truly tasteless and for us that’s a big thumbs up. Our Sophie is the biggest, pickiest pooch around and she has no idea she’s ingesting this sprinkled on her favorite snack. So if you have a pup who’s as picky as ours you will have no problem giving this to them.
