        Comments about Vetoquinol Epakitin Supplemental Powder:

        I bought this after the special food didn't change my 15 yr. old male furbabys blood levels when finding kidney failure. After 1 month of use he gained 1 lb. and his BUN level went down quite abit and creatine almost normal. He has been taking this faithfully for 1-1/2 yrs. and still with us. It literally saved his life.

        Comments about Vetoquinol Epakitin Supplemental Powder:

        I started both of my ailing cats on Epakitin in November 2012. Started seeing results after 3 weeks.

        Romeo, my 16 yr old cat, suffers from chronic kidney disease. Since starting on Epakitin twice a day, along with his Ringer's infusion his appetite has increased and he is gaining weight.

        Ms. Kitty, my 14 yr old cat,suffers from Mega-colon. I'm not sure how it helps her condition, but it does. Since starting on Epakitin, I've been able to substantially cut down on her stool softner and fiber supplement. What a blessing!

        Both cats love it just sprinkled on top of their food---lick it right up. I don't know if it will give them a longer life, but it has definitely improved the quality of their life!

          Comments about Vetoquinol Epakitin Supplemental Powder:

          Product very helpful for our older cat with kidney issues. Great price compared to vet. Unfortunately, on last two orders in a row they sent a totally wrong item. Very prompt and polite correction of their error at no cost to us, but have to order earlier to allow time for re-shipment. Will continue to order due to very good price, but hope they get it right on first try next time.
