If your cat improves when he receives fluid therapy and his kidney disease is not too severe he may benefit from a Chinese herbal formula called: Rehmannia 8. Rehmannia 8 is available from a variety of reputable online sources.
If your cat has severe renal disease, than there are two Chinese herbal formula's which may be beneficial, these include: 1. Three Seeds Combination and, 2. Minor Buplerum. These should be taken together. You may have to ask your vet for a prescription for these herbal formulas from Natural Path Herbal Company (www.nphc.ca). If the Natural Path Herbal Company products are not available to you than please only purchase veterinary versions for the Three Seeds Combination and the Minor Buplerum. The human versions of these herbal formulas are slightly different and aren't as effective in cats. The prescription medication: Benazepril may also be beneficial for severe kidney disease.
Another medication that may help for either stage of feline kidney disease is Azodyl, which is available by prescription.
The dose for the above listed Chinese Herbal Medications are as follows for an average sized cat: for teapills the dose would be: 4 teapills orally three times daily. The dose for capsules or regular pills is one capsule or tablet three times daily. If you are lucky enough to find a liquid tincture, the dose would be 10 drops orally three times daily.
I am not a vet, but have had many animals in my time. My husband and I currently have a dog and two cats.
Since Hills Science Diet and Royal Canin are generally only available by prescription (at least in my country), I can only assume that your vet prescribed them for your cat. It's been a long time since you've had your cat examined (about a year and a half, by your indication above). I would suggest taking him back to the vet for a more complete check up.
I would recommend not self-medicating him until the doctor gets another look at him. He should have a follow-up test run to see if his numbers have changed. Tell the vet of any symtoms that have NOT gone away, and tell him/her of any NEW symptoms he has developed. I would recommend you do this sooner than later--a 5 year old cat should not be this sick. And if you don't like this vet, please find another. Hope that helps. Good luck with your little baby.
I agree with what Babs has said your kitty really needs to be checked over with CRF he needs more constant hands on assessments....I also want to share with you an excellent site for info on CRF kitties.....good luck to you both.
