So far, so good
We started our cat, Raphael on Azodyl at the end of December (he is Stage II for CRF) and just had a blood test for creatinine and BUN at a little less than 30 days. I'm pretty sure it reduced the creatinine to 2.1 from 2.4 (about 13%), although the BUN did go up to 41 from 38, but that could be related to his high protein diet. We will continue with Azodyl and see how he does over the next few months. We are lucky that he is a good pill taker, so we don't have to open it and put on his food.
My vet recommended 2 capsules per day of this product for my cat, who is 19 years old with kidney disease. Because this product is quite expensive, my husband tried giving just one capsule a day...everything seemed okay for about 3 weeks. Then my cat became very lethargic, reclusive, refusing to eat and I feared the worse. We tried to figure what was making her like this, then after realizing that the only change we had made was reducing the amount of Azodyl, we restarted the 2 capsules per day and within 3 days, we seriously had a new cat. She was alert and active, wanting attention, and an had an appetite again. Lesson learned...no matter how expensive, I've spent a lifetime with "Sassy" and I won't compromise her health ever again. This product really works! I'm a skeptic of everything...but not of this product.
Hard to administer but worth it
My elderly CAT had bladder infections and renal issues. The Azodyl, taken along with Epakatin seems to have stabilized him. He is more active, interested and has better appetite. It's a bear to give however - he wouldn't swallow it; was not fooled by pill pockets and ran off whenever he saw me reach for the bottle. Finally bought a pill popper online (could not find locally in stores). It makes administration so much easier!
old dog, bad kidneys
from Bedford, VA11/04/2012
My Daisy is 17 years old. A Chi-Terrier she is as stuborn as they come. Giving pills is an adventure with mixed results. So, I open the capsules and mix them with a little wet food and the med gets in her no problem. I doubt she would still be alive without Azodyl, her kidneys have been shot for over 2 years...
Continues to improve kidney function!
by Fur Baby Momma06/08/2013
My senior kitty Max with early stage kidney disease has been on
Azodyl 2x/day for the past 2 years. His kidney function lab values have not only stabilized, but they continue to improve. It is important to give this product as directed (keep the capsule intact). The capsule is designed to protect the probiotic bacteria inside from stomach acids and release the bacteria when the capsule reaches the small intestine where they can break down kidney toxins. If the contents are taken out of the capsule and then administered, the stomach acids can kill the bacteria rendering the product useless.
Azodyl for feline renal failure
My kitty is about 18 and renal failure was diagnosed 18 mo ago. He was failing and doing poorly and then I started Azodyl. Overnight his breath was normal and his energy level and appetite came right back. He's gained weight and overall is doing very, very well. It has really been wonderful to have my sweet guy back.
Azodyl used for CKD in Cats
from Yakima, WA09/10/2013
I ordered the Azodyl after I received a special e-mail highlighting Chronic Kidney Disease in cats. My cat has CKD and was very ill and just returned from the vet. She got dehydrated due to the heat, I didn't realize this would happen, I guess I should have known. She receives daily sub-Q fluids and the Azodyl. She is doing so much better, I am so grateful for finding this product. She eats about 1/2 of the renal vitamins so hasn't warmed up to those as much. This product is a must have for cats with CKD. You will need a pill gun to get the pill into them in an efficient manner and intake state. According to the vet, this product is great for dogs as well.
Miracles do happen!
by Sophia's mom04/07/2013
My 8 yr old greyhound was diagnosed with severe kidney disease, with a "guarded" prognosis. She had stopped eating, her creatinine and BUN were through the roof, and she was losing protein in her urine. I have been using Azodyl for 1.5 months, and she has made a miraculous turn-around. She is eating again, she is playful and happy, and has energy for our walks ... still some low days, but nothing like where she was 2 months ago when I thought she might not make it more than a few weeks! I also am using Chinese herbs, and I think the combination has given her a new lease on life. Truly a gift, thank you Azodyl!
Greatest product ever
I have been purchasing this product for years. I truly believe it has extended my cats life. If all goes well she will be 20 years old this January. There is no doubt in my mind that it is because of Azodyl.
be highly pleased
I bought this for my dog who was diagnosed with kidney failure and the vet could do no more for her. Since starting it she has now gained weight and is eating better and more active than she was.
from Murfreesboro, TN11/04/2011
This product was recommended by my vet for my 19 year old cat to help in keeping the kidney levels where they need to be. They have done that and for that I would have others consider it.
azodyl works great
My 10 year old yorkie was in renal failure. My vet recommended azodyl and alumunium hydroxide. Within two weeks her creatine levels were back in the normal range and in one month her phosphorus levels came back to the high normal range. I am very pleaed with the azodyl.
Am very impressed by the cost of the Azodyl. It cost $50 for the same quantity at the vet and I found EntirelyPets.com to be the cheapest around. Especially when I can get 3 bottles at even a cheaper price. Thanks!!!!!
My female Boxer, Teddy will be 14 in October. She has been on Azodyl since she was diagnosed as being in the beginning stages of kidney failure in January. It's now September, and her kidney funcion has been steadily improving, and she is doing well. I am very happy with this product!!
Greatest Supplement Ever
My cat has been taking this product for 4 years and has totally improved her kidney function. Its truly amazing
by Linda Schmid
from Palm Springs, CA07/25/2014
(My cat doesn't mind the taste of it in her food), good product
I've used Azodyl for nearly a year now for my terrific cat Casper, who was diagnosed with kidney failure last January. Until I found it, he was not doing well at all--was losing weight, had little appetite, and required subcutaneous fluid every day (NOT a popular activity with him!). Once he had been on Azodyl for awhile, though, his appetite picked up, his health improved markedly, and the fluid requirements went way down, with intervals as high as 10 days or so.
from Everson, WA10/24/2011
Azodyl works wonders and has helped my cat with failing kidneys for over 4 years!!
My 18 year old cat's kidney's were beginning to fail. Her coat was greasy and she was losing weight. This product made a huge difference.
worth a try
I wish someone had told me about this product sooner. Unfortunately my cat died recently. She was over 1 year into kidney failure and we were doing fluids, etc., etc. But I heard about Azodyl and tried that for her. She seemed to really perk up quite a bit I think she felt better, her appetite definitely picked up. If you have a cat with kidney problems, I would definitely use Azodyl as an adjunct to the fluids. Just from her response to it, it certainly seemed to help.
Lab results don't lie!
by Lucky Cat
from North East02/13/2010
I was a skeptic, but after Lucky's creatinine went to 3.8, and BUN to 70, I put him on Azodyl, Rubenal, and Vetri-Science Renal Essentials. He doesn't tolerate the renal diets, but has been on a lower protein/phophorus one. After 3 months on these 3 products, his creatine is now 2.1, and BUN is 58. It's definately worth trying-the proof is in the numbers.
I love shopping Entirely Pets. My 16 year old cat, Trixie has CRF, which means, chronic renal failure. When I found out what product might help I looked online because the vet was so expensive, I found Entirely Pets online and have been ordering Azodyl now since March 2011. It's so easy to order online and the shipping is very fast. So far Trixie is doing Great! Thanks You
Renal failure has improved!
from Banner Elk, NC11/11/2011
One of my Shiloh Shepherds was diagnosed with early renal failure. Since using azodyl his numbers have improved a lot.
Azodyl - A Worthwhile Purchase
Azodyl has kept my cat, Fred, alive since he was diagnosed with kidney disease in March. I didn't expect him to live one month but it's already been four months. I'm grateful for the effectiveness of this medicine!
from Las Vegas, NV10/31/2011
This product works well it's been helping my precious cat for 20 months now. I wouldn't EVER go without giving it to him. He's been on it since the day he was diagnosed. Only complaint I would have is getting the product. It has to be refrigerated the pills can not reach over 80 degrees as this destroys them. My vet overcharges and I order online. When the pills arrive with ice pack they are not always cold so it's a catch 22 on whether they are over the recommended temp.
Hopeful about Azodyl
by animal lover01/09/2012
Our cat has just started taking Azodyl and we are hopeful that we will see a positive effect on her next lab work. She tolerates the capsules by a "pill shooter" well. Unlike the first time I ordered Azodyl, this last order was packed with just one "ice pack" and was lukewarm when it arrived. Since it was sent priority mail, I am hoping that it did not lose its efficacy.
Keeping my cat alive
from San Diego, CA12/09/2011
Our 18-year-old cat was diagnosed with renal failure over a year ago. Our vet prescribed Azodyl. We sprinkle one capsule of Azodyl on a tiny bit of canned salmon an hour before her breakfast and dinner. We are thrilled to report Moorea's urine tests show normal results and she is able to continue her volunteer work as a therapy-pet, thanks to Azodyl. One important note: Azodyl is a supplement which MUST be kept cold, even when being shipped.
A Life Saver
from Las Vegas, NV10/30/2012
This product has not only prolonged my aging dog's life, but also greatly increased the QUALITY of her life. Without it, her kidneys would have failed long ago.
This product has greatly impacted the wellness of my cats renal failure. It has been an excellent find and I would highly recommend it to others with pets that have a similar condition.
Before giving my cat this supplement, she had lost a lot of weight, was very lethargic and had almost no appetite. In just a few days after starting her on Azodyl and Epakatin, her appetite improved and her energy levels were up. After a few weeks, she was back up to a normal weight. The only negative comment I have is that the capsules are quite large and may be difficult for some people to administer to a cat.
by Jordan Turner
from Madison, WI05/09/2010
Azodyl is keeping my 15 year old cat stable. His blood tests showed that he's not getting worse. So thats good, I give Chippy 2 pills every day, as well as Purena Veterinary Diets, and fish oil. He seems to be doing ok.
This is an amazing product! My 2 year old Lab has CRF and this product is helping his kidney levels decrease. He has only been on it for a short time and has had amazing results! I am thrilled with the savings (compared to buying through the vet) and the fact the medication was shipped overnight in a refrigerated container!!!
My dog is having kidney issues and the azodyl seems to be helping
Review for Product/Not Seller
I have been giving this to my 12 yo fem. Pomeranian with the beginning stages of kidney failure for about 6 months along with Hills K/D diet and Aluminum Hydroxide. While I'm not sure if it's only one or the combination of these three but her kidney levels have remained steady, if not shown slight improvement. I just open the capsule and mix the powder in with her wet food and she eats it with not problems.
This product has helped my dog tremendously. He takes this with Pet Tinic every morning for his decreased kidney function. He does not mind taking them at all and actual looks foward to it.
from NEW YORK03/12/2013
HER CREATININE WAS 2.8. I DID GAVE THIS PRODUCT TO MY DOG HOPING SHE WILL GET BETTER. SHE WAS TAKING 2 CAPS DAILY PLUS EPAKITIN TWICE DAILY. THEN 1 MONTH AFTER HER CREATININE GOT 4.8 AND ALL LABS VALUES GOT WORSE PLUS SHE WAS IN SUBCUTANEOUS FLUIDS + RENAL DIET TOO. AND THEN SHE WAS NOT EATING, UNABLE TO STAND UP AND CRYING LIKE SHE WAS IN PAIN SO THEY PUT HER DOWN.
by K B02/12/2009
Our Vet was very concerned about ordering this medication online. She states this medication must be refrigerated and kept cold. Ordered this product three days ago, it was shipped two days ago. It was received cool and shipped in a cold pack. Checked the expiration date and was exactly the same timeframe as our Vet - from dispensing to receipt - two months. Very happy with this purchase and Entirely Pets service. Thank you.
I realize AZODYL isn't a drug - it's a supplement, but what it did for my beloved (15 yr. old) kitty Buster, WAS a MIRACLE!
One day a few months ago, Buster was his usual perfect self in the morning then at around lunch he wasn't right and by the next morning he had ALL the signs of full renal failure (unfortunately I've already been thru it ...). I freaked out and spent the next week working w/our vet, trying to hand feed, etc. - basically doing anything and everything we could think of as Buster went steadily downhill. By that Friday he could hardly stand, would barely lick the baby food, and honestly it looked hopeless. In desperation I searched the web looking for a miracle and came upon everyone's reviews of Azodyl. We were lucky enough to be able to pick it up instead of waiting for it to be shipped over the long holiday weekend - I'm sure Buster wouldn't have held out that long. Needless to say - it WAS the MIRACLE I was praying for. Today Buster has gained back all his 12.5 lbs. w/the energy of a kitten and only a couple of minor little ticks that remind us how sick he was and how grateful we are to have him back ...YES, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT & A HUGE THANK YOU TO ENTIRELY PETS!!
by Lara Chetkovich06/08/2009
A friend recommended this when my cat went into catastrophic kidney failure--two vets told me to put her down but one vet said she might have a few more weeks left in order to say goodbye if I tried this product, IV fluids, Ba Wei Di Huang Wan and assist-feeding. If you have a CRF cat with severe disease, then you know they have problems with severe constipation and vomiting which can be a nightmare. The combination of psyllium and probiotics is perfect, but I supplement this with a pinch of extra psyllium, and sometimes a cap of fish oil, in addition to her phosphorus blockers and lactulose, and she is regular as a metro bus. She has survived over 9 months and has a good quality of life.
This product is really helping my 18+ years female cat who was diagnosed with kidney failure in Dec. 2011 and the vet just about gave her a death sentence. I tried the vet's solution, which made my cat worse - she could not eat, lost more weight and pulled out her chest fur. She was dying. I then took her situation into my own hands and gave her quality food which she ate by herself, I mixed various homeopathic remedies for her and started her on the Azodyl. Today she has put on weight, her fur grew back, she eats well, urinates in the cat box and is doing well for a cat her age.
from Lafayette Louisiana10/15/2011
Found this web site totally by accident. When I saw the med or supplement if you will that my cat is taking I stopped and investigated further. Not only did the site explain the supplement better than my doctor, it was half the price! My cat is doing well since being on this product. No kidney episodes in 2 years. Only complaint or concern I have is that the product has to stay cold. Need a better system for assuring this. My last bottle arrived barely chilled. Hoping it is still effective.
6 Month Results - Excellent
from St. Paul, MN07/11/2012
Just had our cat, Raphael tested for kidney blood values. He has been on Azodyl since end of December 2011. Creatinine is down from 2.4 to 1.8 and BUN from 38 to 31. Our vet was impressed with the results, since she has no other cats on this supplement.
My vet charges me $60.00 for a bottle, an I pay half that now that I know this site! Thank God I found it as this stuff really has helped my baby!
by J T07/07/2014
WHEN I RECEIVED IT THE BOTTLE WAS AT ROOM TEMP. AND I HAD TO THROW IT AWAY AND GO TO VET AND BUY A BOTTLE
AND PAY MORE. SO I PAID FOR IT TWO OR
THREE TIMES OVER.
Working Well For My Cat
from LA, CA01/25/2013
New smaller capsule easier to administer. Helping to control the health issue
THIS is an important medicine for my cat's kidney function! WE were in a house fire & she was lost & I rescued her but she did not get enough water.. I was told this product is very good for the cat! I RECOMMEND IT...it comes in small capsules..my cat is finicky so I hide it in her food..supposed to be taken WHOLE not crushed or broken but in extreme circumstances I have to try and open the pill to sprinkle it on the food as she needs to get this substance in her system...THANK YOU...excellent product! fast delivery...nice customer service!
Best Supplement Ever
from San Diego, CA03/16/2013
This so called "dialysis in pill form", has saved my dog's life. I'm convinced that without, he would not be among us anymore. I am so glad my vet put him immediately on Azodyl after the diagnosis of chronic kidney failure. It has made such a difference in his life, it really works.
May be a miracle treatment
by Max's Mom
Our cat was diagnosed in kidney failure in June of 2010. He was not expected to live until August and it was recommended we put him to sleep. After research and a consult with our vet we decided to try one last thing, Azodyl in combination with the food changes we had already made. Soon he started eating, playing and was back to his normal self again. A month after starting Azodyl he caught a mouse outside and proudly brought it home. It is 8 months after his "death sentence" and he is happy and active. With a low phosphorous diet and Azodyl, he is living La Vida Loca and we are grateful for each day. (Note: We are only using 1 Azodyl/day and open the capsule to sprinkle on a teaspoon of wet food - the capsule is large for a cat).
I have been ordering products from Entirely Pets for years. This is a very good product for dogs with renal failure. It has helped my dog greatly. It is not cheap and must be sent in an ice pack and you must be received in a couple of days. My orders average over $125.00 per month. I have always received free shipping. I did not receive this order for seven days. I called them and they told me that to be assured that I get it fast I needed to pay $29.00 for expedited delivery. I will not order this product again since they make plenty of money on it and the shipping is ridiculous!
from Honolulu, HI07/01/2014
My lovely cat has kidney problem for 4 years. I have been using this product since then.
It doesn't have any smell and I put one capsule to wet food then she he can take it. She takes couple kinds of treatment and I don't know Azodyl is working or not but I feel she is getting better so I will continue to use this product. cupel
This is Great Stuff!
from Fredericksburg, VA12/28/2011
Our 13 year-old German Shepherd mix was off her food with elevated protien levels and deteriorating kidney functions. Our Vet recommended we try her on Azodyl and we did. Spice has made a complete turn around since starting her on this product, and all her levels returned to normal before we even finished the first bottle. This product has been such a blessing and we thank God for it and for the improvement in our girl's health!!
Great Purchase, But...
My 17 year old dog has been on this medication for a couple of years and I have paid triple the price at the vet's office. The price is great, but my only concern was that it arrived and was hot. This medication is suppost to stay cold. I even did the two day arrival and all the ice had melted, Next time I will overnight and request more ice put with it.
Last April, my 15 year old kitty Little Boy had his yearly blood work up and I was informed that he was in very very early stage renal disease. Little Boy's vet told me that it wasn't uncommon for him to be diagnosed with this condition because of his age. Little to say, I was crushed.
Great stuff! Thank GOD for this everyday!
A Miracle Product!
When our dear cat Georgie was diagnosed with kidney disease a couple of months ago we were devastated.There is no cure, but one of the meds our vet gave us to at least help keep Georgie comfortable was Azodyl and from the day we started him on it, his condition has really improved remarkably. I've seen lots of super-positive feedback online from others using this product on their pets with kidney failure and it's all true. Azodyl is like a miracle in a bottle. It's a very easy to give small capsule and along with Epakitin, Liqui-Tinic, & daily IV fluid it's an essential element of Georgie's treatment. This stuff is an absolute godsend and to us it's worth it's weight in gold. And thanks to Entirely Pets, it's affordable, too ---- nearly half the price our vet was charging us for it.
this product has been highly recommended for years and is supportive of kidney issues in cats. i have had several cats through the years on this regimen. Make sure that you receive it on ICE! and immediately put in refrigerator or it can lose all potency as it is live probiotic culture.
I do recommend it.
EntirelyPets has the best price around on this product-Azodyl. We've had excellent results with our three older cats who receive it twice a day mixed with baby food for their kidney dysfunction. Our vet recommended it, and their health has improved greatly. I recommend trying it if you have older cats with the same problem.
I have a long hair Shih-Tzu, she gets brushed everyday. This product makes brushing her so much easier. Her hair is softer and smells very nice.

I love getting these treats from you because of your fast delivery and the treats are always so soft and fresh. Only once I received a batch that was a little dry, but it hasn't happened again. Your web-site is very is to order products from. Everything time I get an order, I always mail a package or two of the treats to my brother in Arizona for his pup, and I also send some to a girl friend of mine in Minnesotta. All the doggies love them. Thanks so much, Catherine Marotta
Best price I've seen. Great shipping.
from Minneapolis, Minnesota11/24/2011
I purchased this product for my l9 year old cat Alexis. She has kidney failure. This is the best price I've seen. My vet charges almost $10 more for the same product. The shipping was amazing.
from Cleveland, Ohio07/30/2010
I rarely write reviews as well, but felt the need to share my story. My dog was diagnosed with kidney failure and bladder cancer. i have her on a selection of supplements, but the Azodyl, when introduced, was just amazing. She is on her eigth month now and holdin on. The Azodyl is the miracle! Entirely pets has been a great site to order from, you can truely order with confidence.
from Knoxville, TN01/21/2014
My cat has been fighting renal failure for 2 years next month. My Vet recommended that he take this twice a day along with IV fluids and Science Diet K/D food.
This product has played a BIG part in keeping my cat happy & healthy!
Super Fast Shipping
from Salem, OR06/29/2013
I bought this product due to the reviews on some dog kidney disease forums. My dog has only been on it for 1 month, but a follow up appointment/blood test showed his levels went back to normal. I decided to purchase 3 more bottles and was shocked at the super fast delivery. I will take him back for another blood test after we go thru the 3 bottles and if his levels are normal I will keep him on it just to be safe. He is feeling really good. He is a 14 year old Jack Russell and this elevated kidney level problem started in Oct. I would suggest anyone that is facing this scary health issue to put their dog on this product and give it a try.
The service at Entirely Pets is fast and easy.
My mature older male cat - Mr Mikey, has renal failure. I learned of this product three years ago when studying holistic therapies. (He can not swallow the capsule so I sprinkle it on top of his food with other supplements).
Azodyl for dogs
This is a great product. Our vet prescribed it for both of our dogs when they were experiencing kidney issues. It kept our 15 year old Shar Pei going a full year longer than she would have had she not been on Azodyl. Our other dog gets it about every 6 months to keep her kidneys from developing crystals.
Very good Supplement
Do to my Cat's illness, (she is 17 years old, blind, deaf and in renal failure) my Vet recommended Azodyl ones a day for the rest of her life, and that was two years ago. I'm very thankful for the recommandation because my Cat would not be alive today.
from Kansas City, MO05/03/2010
My Boxer Cashis was diagnosed with CRF a little over a year ago at which time my vet prescribed for him Azodyl along with Hill's Science Diet KD. We seen a 100% turn around in his health and overall well being since then. Cashis goes for a urinalysis and blood work every 3-4 months to check his kidney values and the vets continue to be amazed at the fact that he had held the same figures since the original diagnosis. You see, he is in Stage 4 of CRF and apparently it is rare for a dog to maintain their figures, weight, and overrall health the way he is. You would never even imagine that he was sick if I didn't tell you. When we first found out he had CRF he was given a 1-2 year life line at most. Well, he has already surpassed 1 year by 2 months and continues to impress us all by holding strong. So, I strongly reccommend this product to anyone in this same position and furthermore I strongly suggest buying from this website as I have been able to purchase 2 bottles for the price of one at my vet's office. My package came promptly and chilled as promised... Great Job Entirely Pets and thanks for the HUGE SAVINGS!!!
Expensive but worth it
by Agnes the Cat
from Indianapolis, IN12/12/2011
I began giving this to my 18-yr-old cat who was diagnosed with renal failure. She actually likes the flavor when I break open the capsule and add a bit of water or food. It seems to keep the "coughing" to a minimum and she has not shown any other symptoms. Whether this has kept anything from progressing, I can't say but she didn't show any symptoms other than drinking a lot before anyway.
Wendy our cat has reduced kidney function and was not eating and was losing weight. After a week on Azodyl she is eating, ganing weight and has more energy. Simply amazing.
Helping with kidney function!
Since starting this and epakitin, my girl's blood work is staying in the same range so her kidney function is NOT declining like it was before starting epakitin and azodyl!
from FOREST PARK,IL.02/28/2012
THIS IS THE BEST PLACE TO BUY THIS PRODUCT!
My dogs were in renal failure due to the dog food recalls last year. MY vet recommended this supplement and I am so happy she did! My dogs are alive today, when they were pretty much knocking on deaths door.
I have to admit I was skeptical about this product, but the only alternative treatment for my REALLY OLD cat's renal failure was sub-cutaneous fluids 3x/week, which seemed inhumane/traumatic.
My cat is alive and kicking
Azodyl I brought from the U.S. to Polish because it does not sell here. Saved the life of my catkin. She runs, jumps and enjoys life like a healthy cat, and before that it was very bad. I do not need any drips and frequent visits to the vet. I highly recommend. Thank you very much also the team store "Entirely pets" for instant dispatch and resolution of any related Azodyl sourcing problems. I Grett
GREAT For CKD cats
My cat was diagnoised with CKD and she has been showing a lot of symptoms of not feeling well etc. After tking Azodyl for 2 weeks, her blood test showed her BUN level went substantially down (although creatinine was only reduced for a bit) but I hope it will help my cat with a greater extend after 1 month or so taking Azodyl.
One year results
Our cat, Raphael who is almost 10 and 1/2 has been on Azodyl for a year and one month. His latest blood tests were excellent - creatinine is at 1.6 (from high of 2.4) and BUN is at 34 (from high of 38). We see no kidney related issues at this time and our vet is impressed by the results.
Fast efficient shipping!
This product needs to be kept cold. It arrived with extra cold packs and was as described. Product seems to be working according to improved blood test.
Arrived fast and COLD!
Item was perishable and had to be shipped cold. It was shipped with multiple cold packs. Great Job!
Worth Every Penny (or Dollar!)
by FL Gal03/20/2013
When my cat was diagnosed with renal failure I researched my options and decided to try Azodyl (also highly recommended by my Vet). Although my cat was in the beginning stage of renal failure I did not want her condition to worsen. I give her one pill each morning and she continues to live a "normal" life...She will not eat the "healthy" low protein cat food but she will take an Azodyl each day so I suspect that's why there have been no new symtoms and she continues to be in good health.
from Coldwater, MI12/19/2011
I am trying Azodyl product out and using in conjunction with my Epakitin 300 as my vet recommened and so for great results!! Happy with my choice! Renal failure is a horrible thing and with these types of meds it makes life more bareable!!!
from Banner Elk, NC01/27/2012
I have a Shiloh Shepherd six years old who was diagnosed with renal failure a year ago. We started using Azoydl a year ago and his creatinine and bun numbers have come down. He is eating well, gaining weight and very playful, all good signs.
Azodyl is a Miracle
from Tonawanda, New York11/01/2012
My little Penny was suffering from renal failure and the only the Vet said I could do was IV fluids. But a friend recommended Azodyl and I ordered it, and Penny has rebounded so well and is active, loves to walk, and play. Even the vet was amazed at her blood test results. He can't believe how she has improved. It might not be a permanent fix but she has lived longer than the 6 month ago blood test identified her with severe renal failure. Thank you Azodyl for saving my little Penny. . Vivian

Awesome product! my cat was diagnosed with kidney failure 5 years ago and this medicine keeps her moving right along with quality in her life!

this is a necessary medecine for my cat to livev, and this is the best price I have found so far, plus the coupon I was sent. Great product.
One Healthy Cat
Azodyl is a wonderful supplement for cats with kidney disease. My 4 year old Maine Coon mix is thriving. These are easy to swallow too. I just pop one into the back of my kitty's mouth, close his mouth, and then blow on his mouth/nose. He swallows it quickly.

I have a 20 yr. old calico kitty that turned diabetic at about 15, over a few years her kidney levels started to rise and my wonderful vet recamended Azodyl 2x a day unopened- she explained that the pill gets to the stomach and opens up to get the best results. It was scarry at first based on the pill size but believe me cats can swallow it hole. It was a matter of life or death for my little girl I wasn't going to let her get away with giving me a fuss- just bribe them with something they love afterward and they will get use to it- temtations work for me. With in a month of being on this med. All her levels went back to normal, 5 Years later and she still has normal levels. I can't rate this product highly enough, it has given me years of a quality life with my girl I wouldn't have had. I just read they make a smaller pill now too in a 90 count for those to afraid to push the pill. If your hesitating just give one bottle a try its worth it..And do use it as directed. Oh I was also told that the meds stay good for several days even if not ice cold- which I have gotten some batches that were cool to almost warm with no difference to my cats health.- one other thing my old girl is on that works great is duralactin (great price here) for her arthritis- the only anti inflamatory that works for cats this one can be opened in wet food I give one a day and it helps her keep walking, She has sever hip displasia which I never imagined cats could get.
Wasnt enough time to tell

I had them overnighted to me yes very expensive but who wouldn't want to try everything to better your loved one. only after a week of these our dog passed away so we weren't really able to see if they helped or not as it can take a week to actually start helping. Going back I have no regrets on trying this product but I wouldn't do it again. I dropped 60 bucks and have a whole bottle to do what with...the shipping was fast of course and the ice was just fine.
My cat's kidney function greatly improved since taking Azodyl. Amazing product

My 13 year old Yorkie is in early renal failure. This product has made good improvement in her lab values. I mix it in her food and because it has no flavor, she licks her bowl clean. The Vet thinks she is on the road to recovery. I'm very grateful I found this product. Thank you, Nancy Hanna
This medication is keeping my 18 yr old cat alive. One tablet per day sprinkled into his wet food does the trick.

With consistent use and following the directions exactly, Azodyl eventually brought my cat's BUN down from a whopping 105 to 63 over about two months time. I am thrilled, needless to say and he is doing great! I was concerned about the size of the capsule and at first, mixed the contents in with a small amount of food but the product is not effective this way. Barely made a dent in the BUN value, it remained very high. Azodyl really must be given as directed. That is when I saw the real difference. He swallows it just fine with a Pill Pocket securely wrapped around it. I also gave it once by opening his mouth and placing it at the back of his throat, closing his mouth until he swallowed and that was also no problem. I would recommend checking with your Vet about how to do this correctly though. I am very thankful for this product!!
My vet simply calls "Miracle Dog"

UPDATE from my review 2 months ago: My 17 year old dog has been using Adozyl for 6 months now. We almost had to put him down back in October but he is still going strong! We give this pill as recommended along with 150ml of subQ fluid every night. Last December, his creatnine was 3.45 and BUN was 115; in Feb, his creatnine was 2.99 and BUN was 65 and last week, creatnine was 1.90 ans BUN was 42!! That's close to normal as he can get! Thanks Azodyl! Looks like he's going to be with us longer!
Although there is little empirical evidence that this works, there is anecdotal evidence that some cats are helped with kidney dysfunction. Unfortunately, the product must be kept refrigerated to be effective.
The shipment was wrapped in cold packs but the Post Office just left it on the doorstep without ringing the bell. I don't know how long it was out there in 80 or more degrees. I paid additional to have it shipped priority mail.
An Excellent Probiotic

I like this product very much but sometimes it's hard to hide it in the food. It's not supposed to be opened up but administered as a capsule. Although it's sometimes a hit or miss situation, I continue to feed it as my cat has kidney disease and I'm sure it helps.
Without azodyl I don't think our little 13 year old 4 pound miracle would have made it. Azodyl and fluids were recomended by the vet, now 3 years after renal failure, she's still feeling strong, enjoying life.

We give our 9-year old dog Azodyl twice a year as a preventative measure because she has had occasional kidney/bladder issues in the past. Since she has been on Azodyl she hasn't had any issues. Our Sharpei, who passed away last year, was on Azodyl for two years prior to her death, and we know the Azodyl prolonged her life.

My 15 year old beagle was diagnosed with acute kidney failure just before Christmas, 2009. Even with the recommended diet, I was giving him subcutaneous fluids once a week to control toxin levels. I decided to try the Azodyl, and since I have been giving it to him, I haven't had to give any subcutaneous fluids for the past seven months. His BUN and creatinine levels are significantly lower, and phosphorus levels are normal.
Easy to give this nice small size capsule to my cat, hope it helps her with her chronic kidney disease.
I have my dog back!
When I heard that Faith was verging on kidney failure my heart sank. I lost another dog to it a few years ago. It took 2 weeks. When I started the Azodyl, Faith's BUN was 105. After 4 months of treatment, it was 55. The vet said she had to call the lab to be sure she had received results for the right dog! Last time we tested it was 42. Thank you, Azodyl!
Oh! I called Vetoquinol for help. Their customer service person, Shelby is very friendly and helpful. She corrected my vet and said never to break open the capsules. Just shove them down your dog's throat! I did and I am so very glad!
Excellent product used with Epakitin
from North Brunswick, NJ11/07/2011
I have been giving this to my dog along with Epakitin for over the last 2 years. At that time the Vet said she only had 3 months to live and she is doing great and going strong just reaching her 17th birthday! I believe this product has helped.
from Westchester, NY04/21/2010
I rarely write reviews and usually don't believe them, but after reading all the raves about this product I had to try it for my 6 year-old Kerry Blue Terrier who was diagnosed with acute kidney failure. Amazingly, what they say is true -- after being really sick and nearly losing her twice, after 6 weeks on Azodyl 3 times a day she acts like a puppy and is eating like a horse! She is also on blood pressure meds, but I credit the Azodyl for her amazing recovery. Believe it....it works!

Cheaper than most other internet stores and by far better priced than the vet

Great to start your cat on when in renal insufficiency - my 15 year old has taken it for over a year now and has NOT progressed into renal failure. Would highly recommend this product.
