Azodyl 51 51
Bengal on Azodyl Fall 2007 Nala was diagnosed with an infection in her pancrease that in turn, poisioned her kidenys. Reasulting in acute renal falure. Not from the bad pet food at the time as she was never fed any of it. She seemed to recover and was doing quiet well untill her late summer checkup 2 years ago when her kidney vaules started to rise. My vet put her on high blood pressure meds and Rubenal, another Vetoquel product and was doing extremely well. Well now the US FDA has stepped in and blocked the sle of Rubenal until is passes their tests. Nala is now of Azodyl. Unlike Rubenol, that heals the scaring and reverses some of the damage to the kindeys, Azodyl work by removing the toxins from her blood and rerouting them to the bowels where the never pass through the kidneys releaving them of that burden. Nala's lates blood work had come back much better. The BUN is still a bit beyound the high range of normal, but all other blood factors are well within norms. Azodyl has helped prolong her life a much as possible. Time will tell just how much. For now she is very happy, healthy, hungry, thirsty, and beatsth snott out of her twin brother. :) Thats all a dad can hope for. 06/12/2011
AZODYL PRODUCT REVIEW: As a conventionally trained veterinarian, who also has additional training in holistic veterinary medicine, I am always looking for natural products or supplements that can help manage difficult chronic medical conditions. Certainly chronic kidney failure in both dogs and cats falls under that category. When I read about how this product worked in providing healthy bacteria by mouth(called a probiotic), which would actually draw out toxins/poisons from the blood stream into the digestive tract, I could not wait to try this in my practice. After also reading some clinical trials and reports in a few journals about how using this product significantly improved blood creatinine and BUN values in pets suffering from chronic kidney disease, I was equally as excited. I have not been disappointed in using this product over the past several years!!! There are no side effects that I have seen in practice and with regular use, such a wonderful natural product comes as close to dialysis as one can get, except in this case using the digestive tract as the dialysis route in ridding the body of poisons in those patients with chronic failing kidneys. I find it most effectively used when combined with other supportive measures in managing chronic kidney failure patients such as low protein diets, fatty acids like nordic naturals pet cod liver oil from 1800petmeds, as well as teaching clients how to give extra fluids at home by a method known as subcutaneous fluids. Most vets across the country will offer teaching their clients to provide fluids to their client for such home use, and this will also significantly prolong quality of life in many cases. The only problems I have seen with this product is that it is difficult to get it it into some pets, especially those finicky cats. Also when dealing with a pet above 20 or 30 pounds, regular use of this product can be quite expensive. However given its efficacy and the clinical results I have seen with regular use, I highly recommend it as part of a comprehensive approach to managing patients with chronic kidney disease, and give it an overall rating of a 4.5. Its efficacy a 4.5 and its ease of use a 3.5. 12/29/2008
Saved my dog My dog was diagnosed with stage 4 Kidney failure. After being in the vets for three days they told me to bring my dog home and keep her comfortable because she will pass within a few days to a few weeks. After crying my eyes out with the thought of losing my baby, Princess, I took to the web. My baby was throwing up everything, and she lost weight rapidly. I put her on Azodyl and Epakitin Powder. I changed her diet to cream of chicken soup, gluten free pasta and potato rolls. Within a little over two weeks she made a complete turn around. She gained back some weight, she runs and plays like before and her breath no longer smells like ammonia. She looks great! She should have passed way over three months ago. I am so glad I did the research and did not listen to the vet. They don't know everything. I wholeheartedly recommend these two products. 10/19/2014
It works! After $1,300 in tests, our vet told us that our 16 1/2 year old Yorkshire Terrier Jet had kidney failure and would only last a couple of weeks. I went to work and my boss told me about how Azodyl was keeping his dog, which also had kidney failure, alive. Another person at work also said the same thing about how it was helping her dog. I called the vet and asked him about it and he said he had heard about it but didn't beleived that it actually worked. I ordered it anyway. Within two weeks, Jet was back to his normal self. We have to open up the capsule, as he will not swallow it, mix it with a little cold filtered water, and syringe it into in mouth twice a day. Two year later he is still alive! Our vet calls him the "wonder dog" but still isn't sure it works. The next dog will get a new vet! 02/21/2014
Saving my cat's life for over 4 years Back in '09, my 14-year old cat was diagnosed with early stages of renal failure. She's been taking Azodyl ever since. It will not cure kidney disease but it will slow the progression significantly. We're approaching 5 years since onset and I've recently had to add daily subcutaneous fluids to her regimen. The fluids & Azodyl has allowed her to maintain & continue a high quality of life. Well worth the money. 11/12/2013

Hi, I feed my cat with a little few vegetables (and meat, rice, oils, etc) for the fibers, according to the nutritionnist veterinarian.
The vet is ok for starting giving Azodyl to my cat:
Can we know how much psyllium per cap there is in Azodyl, so that the food could be adjusted in fibers if needed ?
Thank you very much
