Epakitin Powder 16 17
The numbers don't lie :) Last April our 14 year old chocolate lab was diagnosed with renal disease with approx 25% kidney function. By June it had dropped to approx 13% function. He was then started on Epakitin and was retested yesterday (approx 4 months after starting the product). We just got the call . . . his numbers have not changed since his June test. We are thrilled to say the least!! 10/19/2014
Product is Awesome! 19-yr. old cat was diagnosed with kidney disease 18 mo. ago. Bloodwork numbers were going down (bad). A friend recommended Epakitin. Within 2 days, the cat got up off the sofa, started eating, he's gained weight, and got back to living again! Best of all, bloodwork numbers WENT UP (vet was amazed)!! I never ever thought this stuff would work, but it did!!! SO SO SO glad I bought this product, I highly recommend it!! 09/24/2014
Wonderful After my adopted cat was diagnosed with renal failure, this was prescribed. Just 1 spoonful mixed in with her food has brought great results. After only one week, she has put on one ounce! This is definitely a step in the right direction. This supplement works! 03/14/2014

Remarkable product...a lifesaver Buttercup was diagnosed with severe kidney failure in Spring of 2010 and i was told that I should probably put her down....she was only 6 years old and by the time they had her stabilized and diagnosed I was $1200 in. I had the choice of having a $1200 dead cat or seeing her through and hoping for the best. While the total initial care rose to about 3x that amount and the special food and meds have added a few thousand more over the time since then, she is now nearly 10 years old and her kidney failure has gone from severe down to moderate....very rare for that to happen I am told. The only meds she has been on that entire time is Epikitin....so needless to say, it come HIGHLY recommended by me. I am very grateful for the extra time I have had with my sweetie Buttercup 12/10/2013

If a dog is already on food specifically for kidney health, such as Hill's k/d food, will using this product with that food have an added benefit?
I have a 2 yr old that weighs between 10 to 13 bls....depends on the time of year. Can I use this as a preventative for renal failure and how much would I give her?
Answer:Thank you for your question. Each container comes with a scoop which is equivalent to 1gram. 1 gram should be given per 11lbs of body weight. This is not used as a preventative so please consult your vet prior to using this if your furry pal does not have renal failure.
I was wondering how long would a bottle of Epakitin last for a 7 Pound cat?
Answer:Thank you for your question. One level dosing spoon (provided) contains 1 gram of Epakitin and this is to be given once in the morning and once in the evening; so it should last about 3 months.
My cat has powder put into gel capsules and we give them twice a day, morning and evening. We are away overnight and wonder if we can give the 2nd capsule before we go instead of in the evening. We leave mid afternoon and and are home by 10.30 the next morning. She would have received her morning dose about 8am on the day we go away.. Thank you for your help
Answer:Ideally, Epakitin powder should be administered in the morning and evening. Consult your veterinarian to see if the dosing regimen can be altered for your specific pet.
