Ipakitine Powder is a dietetic, complementary feeding stuff for support of renal function.
It is used as a phosphate reducer aiding kidney function in cats and dogs, but now widely used in the ratty community.
The instructions are for 1g per 5kg of body weight, given once or twice a day. This equates to a ‘pinch’ per rat
This is available in a 60g tub. We also weigh this product into 10g bags.
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.
