Our vet says... "If your pet has chronic kidney failure, they need to reduce the absorption of phosphates in their body. Ipakitine is a binding agent that lowers the absorption of phosphates in the intestines. Simply sprinkle it on top of their food. You should allow 1g of Ipakitine per 5kg of body weight - twice daily. Please check this with your vet."

"The first time I used this product it was prescribed by a vet. My Dog is quite fussy so I wanted to try this food supplement rather than expensive specialist foods that she probably won't eat. So far it appears to have had the desired effect with her kidney performance."/ (Posted on
