Full information about Epakitin

General Information on Epakitin

Epakitin is a chitosan based nutritional supplement that is given to both cats and dogs that suffer from chronic renal failure. It is given to cats and dogs to treat heightened renal mineralization, which is caused by the decreased levels of serum hyperphosphatemia, which is further caused when cats and dogs are unable to absorb phosporous. The primary ingredient of Epatkin is Chitosan and the secondary ingredients include calcium carbonate, lactose, and hydrolyzed soy protein.

The primary ingredient of Epakitin is Chitosan, which is a natural polysaccharide that is extracted from shrimp and crab shells. Laboratory tests have proven Epakitin to be an effective phosphate binder and it helps in decreasing phosphatemia. Apart from this, you can also buy Epakitin to reduce creatinine and urea levels in the blood and can increase the life expectancy of a cat or dog without affecting their daily food consumption.

Side effects of Epakitin

In most cases observed, intake of Epakitin has not shown any side effects in dogs or cats. There have been reports of rare cases of Epakitin side effects with primary symptoms being constipation, diarrhea, panting and even excessive drooling. Some dogs and cats may also show allergy symptoms after administration of Epakitin. These symptoms include rashes on the skin of cats and dogs, hives, excessive scratching by pets leading to reddness and even infection. If you are able to identify any of these symptoms in your cat or dog then consult a veterinarian immediately.


Epakitin is a calcium based product and hence you need to consult your vet about any side effects that can occur if the calcium levels of your cat are on the higher side. You should also consult the vet if you are providing your cat with Calcitriol. It is important to ensure that cat and dog medicines don’t contain even the smallest amount of aluminum as it can be dangerous for pets suffering from kidney diseases.

Epakitin Dosage

Epakitin powder is available in 50mg, 150mg, and 300mg boxes. The standard dosage for both cats and dogs are to start with Epakitin 1g for every 10lbs or 5kg of your pet's bodyweight. It needs to be given to your pet twice daily by sprinkling it in their food. You can buy Epakitin for your dog or cat and ensure that you serve them water as well after each meal so that it helps their body to flush out toxins. The standard pack is the Epakitin 50mg box and you can initially accustom your cat or dog to it and then slowly go onto to a larger pack like the Epakitin 150mg if the vet prescribes. Depending on the kidney condition of your dog or cat, administration of Epakitin can be lifelong.


Epakitin is not known to interact with any other medicine or nutritional supplement and is considered as one of the safest supplements for treating cats and dogs suffering from renal failure. In fact, some doctors even prescribe Epakitin as a combination supplement with other supplements or even renal medicines.
