Azodyl is a pro-biotic specifically formulated for kidney patients. It is nutritional supplement the makers claim can reduce azotemia (an increased concentration of compounds that impair the kidneys’ ability to filter and eliminate waste) in cats and dogs. Azodyl is a patented formulation of naturally-occurring beneficial bacteria that metabolizes and flushes out uremic toxins that have diffused into the bowel according to Vetoquinol. The distributor claims that Azodyl supports kidney function by providing natural "enteric dialysis" and slows down uremic toxin buildup in the blood to help prevent further kidney damage.
