Chitosan for dogs and cats
Chitosan for dogs and cats is recommended by vets to support kidney function. It binds with the phosphorus in the body, limiting its absorption and supporting healthy renal function.
Chitosan is a sugar that cannot be found naturally in foods but is obtained from the hard-outer skeleton of shellfish, including crab, lobster and shrimp.
Chitosan from Icelandic shrimp shells bind toxins in the digestive tract which helps to support kidney loading. It has been used by some vets to chelate fat with the apparent benefit of reducing tendencies to pancreatitis. It has recently been recommended to slow the progression of chronic renal problems in dogs and cats by decreasing the absorption phosphorus.
Kidneys play and important role including filtering waste products, controlling osmolality and regulating blood pressure. Kidney function is known to decline with age. The flow of blood to the kidneys is important, as kidneys filter blood, remove waste and extra water to make urine.
When kidneys are not functioning properly, toxins build up in the blood and pets can become ill and need veterinary help.
