Description

Ipakitine Phosphate Reducer Aiding Kidney Function is a dietetic complementary feeding stuff for the support of renal function in cases of chronic renal insufficiency in cats and dogs.

Numerous studies have shown the benefits of phosphate reduction in cats and dogs suffering from kidney failure. Ipakitine contains calcium carbonate a proven phosphate binding agent which lowers the absorption of phosphates from the intestines.

Ipakitine administration: 1g / 5kg body weight twice daily, mixed with food, for up to 6 months initially. One level scoop measures 1g of powder. It is recommended that a check up is performed every 6 months. Administration can be life-long. Allow free access to fresh water during administration.

Ingredients:  Lactose, calcium carbonate, chitosan, hydrolysed soy protein.

i'm treating 2 cats with ipakitine and it seems to be working for both of them. they're not passing such huge volumes of urine now and my persian's wee actually has some colour returning to it which is a good sign. there's no smell or taste to the powder (yes, i've tried it,)and it mixes well with the food and i've not had any wastage like i did with other types of phosphate binders.

My terrier was diagnosed with CRF August 2010 and the vet recommended this product, but said that my dog may not like the taste - this is not the case! He is very fussy about his food, but the powder doesn't affect this. It seems to be working as we're keeping his weight stable.

Having a cat with CRF that refuses to eat renal food (except for Purina N/F dry), this has helped a great deal. I have tried the newer type of phosphorus binders but he refuses to eat food with it mixed in. I have been using this for around 2 years now along with Benazecare (similar to Fortekor but easier to give as the pills are tiny) and he seems to be doing well. He was diagnosed nearly 5 years ago so something must be working for him.
