I have heard that Renalzin has had good results in managing CRF& I don't know why it is not available at more pet supply stores (too new?-although it is used in humans). My vet has approved its use & my fussy Siamese Cats do not mind it mixed in with their food at all. Easy, palatable, cheap& potentially life-extending, thanks for supplying this product!

I recommend you to mix Renalzin with a good cat probiotics of your choice in the morning. Probiotics have on my cat a one-day no-vomiting effect, and after 2 weeks it have drastically improved her mental health. Probiotics are bacteria, not chemicals, they protect your cat stomach and bowl from side-effects* of good chemical molecules like lantharenol and helps eliminating digestive system toxins that could pass into kidney. And some probiotics could give a better taste to Renalzin.
*Most common lantharénol side-effects on humans [1/10;1/100]: hypocalcemia, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, dyspepsia, flatulence, nausea, vomiting.
*Less common [1/100;1/1000]: Hyperparathyroidism, eructation, stomatitis, esophagitis, gastro-intestinal NOS, edema, loose stools, dental disease, dizziness, fatigue, etc...
Data from Fosrenol (Lanthanum carbonate): "these side-effects decrease in time and if medicine is taken during meals." Study on 1745 human patients that used it over a year.
It may work, so good luck !!!

My cat has recently been put on this by a veterinary surgeon as it is in the early stages of chronic renal failure. It can be messy on the can but is sold her at just over half the price of what I would be paying at the vets. Also I made an enquiry and they got back to me quickly saying that they stocked it and it was not prescription only. I have found this site value for service and product selection.
