  • Description Description

    Azodyl is a kidney supplement for cats and dogs designed to support kidney function. It contains a unique blend of beneficial bacteria that work to reduce the buildup of toxins in the bloodstream, which can occur with kidney disease. Azodyl comes in a convenient capsule form that is easy to administer to your pet. With regular use as directed by your veterinarian, Azodyl can help support your pet's kidney health and overall well-being.

    Key Benefits:

    • Supports Kidney Function: Azodyl is specially formulated to support kidney function in cats and dogs.
    • Reduces Toxin Buildup: Contains beneficial bacteria that help reduce the buildup of toxins in the bloodstream, which can occur with kidney disease.
    • Easy-to-Administer: Comes in a capsule form that is easy to administer to your pet, making it convenient for daily use.
    • Trusted Brand: Manufactured by Vetoquinol, a trusted provider of veterinary products, ensuring quality and effectiveness.
    • Improves Overall Well-being: By supporting kidney function, Azodyl helps improve your pet's overall health and well-being.

    The kidneys do critical work, filtering waste and toxins from the body. But if your dog or cat’s kidneys aren’t functioning properly, then the kidneys could be damaged and other problems can occur. If your pet needs renal (kidney) support, talk to your veterinarian about Azodyl, a nutritional supplement that supports kidney function. The patented, naturally occurring beneficial bacteria in each Azdoyl capsule work to flush toxins out of the bowel and blood and slow further toxin build up in the body.

    METHOD OF ACTION: Helps support normal function and health of kidneys

    TREATMENT: This treatment is important for pets with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), which begins with azotemia. Azotemia occurs when nephrons decline and non-protein nitrogenous compounds build up, impairing the kidney's ability to filter and eliminate waste. Azodyl helps reduce azotemia and slows the progression of CKD. Azodyl is safe to use and is compatible with other therapies.

    FAQ

    What is Azodyl®?

    Azodyl® is a brand name for a probiotic supplement used to support kidney health in cats and dogs that have kidney disease.

    Dietary supplements are substances that can be used to supplement the diet, such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbs, botanicals, enzymes, and probiotics. While many supplements are sold over the counter, they still contain ingredients that have biological effects that should be managed by your veterinarian. Follow your veterinarian’s directions and cautions very carefully as their directions may be significantly different from those on the label.

    There are differences in how countries regulate supplements. In the United States, these substances are not as vigorously regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as other medications, which means they can be sold without the manufacturer proving their effectiveness and safety, and without a guarantee of consistent or accurately reported ingredients. In Canada, products that have been evaluated for quality, safety, and effectiveness by Health Canada and authorized for sale will have a license number on the label.

    How does Azodyl® work?

    Azodyl® works by adding nitrogen-consuming bacteria to the intestines. These bacteria break down the increased waste products resulting from the kidney’s impaired ability to eliminate them.

    How effective is Azodyl®?

    Limited studies involving rats, cats, and pigs have found positive results, however other studies have contradicted these results in cats and dogs. Therefore, a treatment trial would be recommended to evaluate effectiveness on a case by case basis.

    How is Azodyl® given?

    Azodyl® is given by mouth in the form of a capsule. It may be given with or without food. Do not open or crush the capsules; give each capsule whole.

    What if I miss giving my pet the supplement?

    If you miss a dose, give it when you remember, but if it is close to the time for the next dose, skip the dose you missed and give it at the next scheduled time, and return to the regular dosing schedule. Never give your pet two doses at once or give extra doses.

    Are there any potential side effects or risk factors for this supplement?

    Side effects with Azodyl® are rare. Notify your veterinarian if you notice anything unusual while your pet is on this supplement. There are no known risk factors for using Azodyl®.

    Are there any drug interactions I should be aware of?

    There are no known drug interactions with Azodyl®; however, vitamins, herbal therapies, and supplements have the potential to interact with each other, as well as with prescription and over the counter medications. It is important to tell your veterinarian about any medications (including all vitamins, supplements, or herbal therapies) that your pet is taking.

    Is there any monitoring that needs to be done with this supplement?

    There is no specific monitoring that needs to be done while your pet is taking this medication. Your veterinarian may monitor your pet to be sure that the medication is working.

    How do I store Azodyl®?

    Store this supplement in the refrigerator.

    What should I do in case of emergency?

    If you suspect an overdose or an adverse reaction to the medication, call your veterinary office immediately. If they are not available, follow their directions in contacting an emergency facility.

  • My dog seems so much better.

    Our vet recommended Azodyl for my 12 lbs Havanese. She was very lethargic due to renal failure. Since using Azodyl she is now a lively 14 yr old. Almost like a new dog. Amazing.

  • Be sure to pay for overnight shipping!

    Customer service was good. The product arrived warm so I was concerned if it was still good but they told me that as long as it's refrigerated within 8 to 10 days it was fine and they also said during the order process it was very clear in the shopping cart that I needed to pay for overnight express shipping. Not sure how I missed this but I did.

    My CKD kitty seems to have improved with the use of this products. He's beginning to eat better even though his kidney values continue to decline. Keeping a kitty eating is the hardest part of CKD ... this products seems to help.

  • Love the product. Was less impressed by the vaccine shipping.

    I've used the azodyl now for a number of years for my cat. She seems to use it well. Eats it right with her food. She is an 18 year old cat. I'm not certain that it has extended her life. But, it was worth a try and she is currently my longest surviving cat. I would continue to use Azodyl on my other cats as they enter their senior years and the years they are more prone to kidney disease. The product needs to be shipped second day vaccine shipping since this item needs to be kept cold. My last shipment arrived and the cold packs were all melted and the product seemed warm. Granted it is summertime. However at the cost for vaccine shipping, I do hope my Azodyl is still going to work. It is quite costly to pay for extra vaccine shipping along with the cost of the azodyl.

  • My baby feels better!!!

    Posted by Tara on Feb 4th 2023

    My 12 year old pug was diagnosed with kidney disease in December. His little kidneys are only functioning at 25 percent. Our vet recommended this supplement to manage symptoms and possibly extend his life. Jake is finishing his second month on this supplement and his symptoms are basically gone. Before the supplement he was peeing a lot, he would occasionally vomit and over all did not act like he felt well. We started seeing some results after only a week and a half on this supplement. Now two months in, he is back to normal bladder habits, he is spunky and plays with his favorite toy again and the vomiting has stopped altogether. He goes back to vet next month to recheck his kidney function and I am hoping we see improvement. But for now my baby feels better and for that I would say this supplement is worth every penny!!! Don't hesitate to give it a try if you can afford it.

  • horrible experience, extremely dissapointed and frustrated

    Posted by Victor on Dec 29th 2022

    First of all i waited 1 week after i initially placed my order where nobody contacted me or notified me that there was no Azodyl in stock and they were waiting on restocks ( i found this by calling them multiple times and talking to customer support ), this is just extremely scammy behaviour, 2nd of all my order was stuck for 5 days for no reason and no notification in "LOS ANGELES CA INTERNATIONAL DISTRIBUTION CENTER" . It has now been more than 3 weeks and i still HAVENT RECEIVED my product. By the time it will arrive i am sure i will throw the products in the garbage trash because there is absolutely no way it still arrives at the right temperature after such a long time. The package shows it has arrived in my country for almost 1 week. 1 week with no update, no notification, and no option to be able to contact anyone and find out where this package is. I am extremely frustrated because i really needed this, but there is absolutely impossible that it will still be usable because we all know that Azodyl is no good if it was kept at the wrong temperature for too long. Horrible service, horrible communication, i wish they go out of business.

  • MY DOG HAS A NEW LEASE ON LIFE & FEELS GREAT!

    Posted by ChiChi on Nov 24th 2022

    My 10 pound chihuahua was given 3-6 months to live with severe kidney failure. That was 17 months ago!!! The Vet said Azodyl might improve her quality of life and to feed her whatever she wanted. Off dog food and she gets a portion of whatever we eat plus 1 Azodyl per day. She looks and acts great-even better than before she got sick. We are amazed at her improvement! Healthy Pets has been a part of her great improvement -great business! I don't think I will ever feed dog food to my dogs in the future. She looks so much better on healthy people food.

    The pills arrived in 5 days from actual date of shipping and with only 1 sticker on the back stating to keep out of heat, it appears no one saw it....because of that, they were left in my mailbox in 100 degree temps. I'm just hoping the product is still good.

  • Good Stuff! Prompt Service! Great Packaging!

    Posted by Garth on Feb 7th 2022

    My dog's vet, as a last resort, thought that Azodyl might be an option for Rubal (my dog) as he was nearing Stage 3 kidney disease. I initially placed an order for the six-pack last November but they were on backorder and, eventually, the order was canceled as HealthyPets had no idea when it might be available again. In late January I saw that they were in stock and, on January 25th, ordered the six-pack again. Two days later my order arrived and I got Rubal started the very next day on January 28th. I know it takes a while to see the benefits and today is just Rubal's eleventh day on Azodyl, but yesterday Rubal showed more life and energy than he had for quite a long while. Perhaps it was a one-off, but I have to think it may be the Azodyl. I hope he will continue to show signs of improvement. I especially want to comment on the packaging. It was obvious that great care and attention was taken in packaging the Azodyl as it arrived in a padded, Mylar pouch (or what appeared to be Mylar) stuffed with small ice bags that I have saved for future use. The Azodyl arrived well refrigerated and the six bottles immediately went into the refrigerator to maintain its effectiveness. Thank you so much, HealthyPets! You have given me hope that Rubal and I can maximize and enjoy however long we may have left together.
