can azodyl be taken with other kidney and uti support supplements?
my cat takes 2 azodyl capsules a day for her kidneys-her kidney values were improved then it was normal since taking it since may 2009--she's had two uti and was given zeniquin (antibiotic)first time for 21 days the last time for 10 days (she's half way through the 10 days dosage--is it okay to give UTI-Free and or pet kidney support from only natural pet store--which is an herbal formula to help maintain pet's optimal kidney health and renal function--contains blend of botanical ingredients from western and chinese herbal traditions--includes cranberry extract, corn silk and astragalus--this formula helps to balance urine ph, promotes healthy circulation to improve renal blood flow, aids in normal detoxification processes and helps the immune system respond to particles that develop in the urinary tract and kidneys--then there are flower essences for kidney strenghener--there's love my pet herbal/homeopathic formulas for kidney-bladder relief--MY MAIN CONCERN IS IT OK TO MIX AZODYL WITH THESE HERBAL FORMULAS--mainly UTI-Free and or kidney support formulas---please advise--i don't want to keep her on antibiotics every time she has a uti---
t4 checked every month--can't seem to get the correct dosage of methimazole--some month's labs are normal--then it'll be off and we have to either cut back or add rx
kidney values were elevated slightly since may 2009 and azodyl has brought readings back down to normal--two capsules a day--capsules too large so i put one into 3 smaller vegetarian capsules--
since kidney problems--she gets chronic uti and goes on antibiotics zeniquin 10-21 days--1st time 21 days, now on 10 days--done next thursday 12/24/09
i'm having the vet xray her kidneys and bladder next tuesday 12/22/09 when i take her in for her t4 check--just to make sure there isn't something else going on
Other pertinent test results
she eats pretty good but not gaining weight--holds around 6.6 lbs--on dry k/d and purina nf--won't eat any kidney can foods so i find foods that are low in protein up to 8% protein--but alot of the pouch and hills can foods low in protein have DL Methionine in it--does that cause uti since that makes urine less acidic????????????my vet said no effect--
Azodyl is safe with everything that your cat is currently taking. It is a probiotic and prebiotic supplement with beet fiber.
Discuss switching to an all canned or homemade high quality protein diet with your veterinarian. High protein wet or canned food is no longer considered the enemy for feline kidney disease, and is currently advocated in many cases.
Consider adding additional cranberry extract as a single supplement because mixed products usually do not have enough, and vitamin C at 100 mg three times daily to help counter your concern about the Methionine.
sorry to bother you but my main concern was--is it okay to take azodyl along with uti-free and kidney support supplements (both from the same company)---the kidney support is suppose to help balance the ph in the urine so do i need uti-free as a maintenance product--i've ordered both but haven't received them in the mail yet--my bet said it's okay to take these products but they may not work--i'm just trying to gather all the info i can before i start administering these products to my cat--even though these products are suppose to not have any side effects--please advise--
