What is Azodyl?
Azodyl is a nutritional supplement for cats and dogs that reduces azotemia, an increased concentration of compounds that impair the kidneys' ability to filter and eliminate waste. Azodyl requires refrigeration and must be kept at refrigerator temperatures at all times. To ensure proper temperature, it requires overnight shipping at an additional cost.

So Far So Good!
I started my 8 year old flame point on Azodyl a week ago and there is already noticeable improvement! If your cat is in kidney failure you must give this a try. Ive lost two cats to CRF, it was awful! I dont want to see this one go through what the others did. He has put on some of the weight he lost he is eating good and is active and loving. So yes so far so good!

Does what it's supposed to...
It has worked well for my cat for the last few years and still continues to be a necessary part of her dietary requirements. That being said I have no idea why this drug has gone up $20 over my previous purchases, and that is taking into account the $20 shipping from FedEx that is necessary.

My vet suggested I add this medication to all of the other ones my dog was taking for his kidney disease. I read the reviews and saw that others had luck with this medication. This medication made absolutely no change in his condition. In fact the things that it was supposed to help with just got worse. This was also the medication that was the hardest to give my dog. The pill size was ok but no matter how I tried to hide it he found it, I can only assume it had a different smell. Before purchasing this medication I would highly suggest considering discussing with your vet what the likelihood is that it will actually work.

Seems to help my kidney failure cat
When my cat had her initial episode and had to be hospitalized, her BUN was at 180 and her creatinine was at 12.9. She had lost her vision and I was told she would not make it through the day. While she was hospitalized, the doctors gave her this medication. Thankfully she lived and also regained her vision. I have been giving this medication twice a day for over a year and also administering subcutaneous fluids five days a week. Keep in mind my cat was only about 6 years old when this happened. Fast forward to almost two years later. I had her blood work checked recently and her BUN is down to 50 and her creatinine is down to the normal range. Her BUN is still high but clinically, she is doing great. She has a huge appetite and runs and plays like a kitten most days. I am thankful for this medication, although expensive, because it seems to really help my Gigi to feel better.

MY TUNIA WAS DIAGNOSED WITH HYPERTHYROID A FEW MONTHS AGO AND PUT ON TAPIZOLE - SHE HAD LOST WEIGHT RAPIDLY AND THE PILLS SEEMED TO MAKE HER WORSE - THROWING UP, RAPID HEARTBEAT, HIDING - AND NOT ACTING HERSELF. SHE ALSO WAS DRINKING AND PEEING A LOT WITH THE STRONG AMMONIA ODOR. I SPOTTED THIS PRODUCT AND ORDERED IT RIGHT AWAY AFTER A HOMEOPATHIC VET RECOMMENDED IT. I HAVE NOTICED A CHANGE IN HER IN THE LAST FEW DAYS. SHE IS MORE COMFORTABLE ACTING HERSELF NOW AND THE AMMONIA SMELL HAS ALSO STOPPED. I HAVE HER SCHEDULED FOR THE RADIOACTIVE IODINE TREATMENT SOON - IT IS VERY EXPENSIVE - BUT I AM FEELING MORE CONFIDENT THAT SHE WILL PULL THROUGH THIS WITH THIS PRODUCT HELPING
