So it has been a help learning how to give her the azodyl capsules, it is still a hassle - she spits it out a lot and one time after I set her down she started choking and spit it out. Anyway it is alot better for her health this way so I will continue. TrichC I hope you are doing well with your cat - sounds like you are trying everything. My cat is 14 now and she seems to sleep alot. She can still jump really high when she feels like it, she jumped up on the armchair awhile ago to see if there was any butter around (she loves butter).
Awesome drop in Cre The level of Urea is more influenced by different things which Cre is not as much, so it's harder to get the Cre to drop.

I found the easiest way to give any pills is just slide it from the roof of the mouth down the back of the throat just past the swallowing/gag point so it goes down easy & isn't spit back out. Once the cat gets used to this as a daily/twice daily occurance and you become more confident doing it, it will just be routine.
