Ipakitine - Renal Support Powder
Ipakitine contains Chitosan and Calcium Carbonate. These act as phosphate binding agents and lower the absorption of phosphates from the intestines. Thus, in respect of a phosphate restriction, they can mimic or enhance the effects of a phosphate restricted food. There is also a reduction in the absorption of some waste products that can affect normal kidney function.
Through this double action, Ipakitine supports normal kidney function.
Numerous studies have shown the benefits of phosphates reduction in dogs and cats suffering from kidney failure and it is now widely accepted that there is a direct link between the length and quality of life of a cat or dog with kidney failure and the amount of phosphates they get through their food.
