This new vet is an idiot if they think the Candioli Renal supplement is the same thing as Azodyl. "Renal" is a used as a phosphorus binder (that's what the calcium carbonate and chitosan do). Does not contain a single probiotic. Azodyl contains only probiotics.

What Renal IS similar to is Epakitin, from the same company that makes Azodyl. So perhaps that's where her confusion lies. But still! I mean seriously, if you're going to be prescribing supplements to your clients, at least know what the frig they are!!!!

And Sam's phosphorus levels are not too high so I don't think a phosphorus binder is essential at this point. Plus they can cause constipation so if he's at all prone to that, use with caution.
