Description

Epakitin for dogs and cats is a nutritional supplement designed to help slow down the progress of chronic kidney disease. Epakitin comes in a powder form and when used with a prescription renal diet, or mixed with regular food, Epakitin supports kidney function safely, and effectively.

Key Benefits
  • Nutritional supplement for cats and dogs to help slow down the progression of chronic kidney disease

  • Administration can be lifelong and there are no reported side effects
