Epakitin is a nutritional supplement powder for dogs and cats that helps support kidney function and also limits phosphorus absorption from the intestines.
Dogs and Cats
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. This limitation helps pets with chronic kidney (renal) disease by slowing down damage caused by the disease.
