        Comments about Vetoquinol Epakitin Supplemental Powder:

        The vet prescribed this for our 13-year old mini schnauzer who was vomiting likely due to a high phosphorus blood level. We're pleased at how easy this is to administer (sprinkle on his food), and how much he likes it. We're confident he's getting the dose he needs and expect his level to be improved during his upcoming blood work. AND he hasn't vomited once since we started him on this product!

            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!
