Supplements to Use to Improve Feline Kidney Function
We mix krill oil-about 100mg depending on size of oil we buy, COQ10 100mg, vitamin E oil 100IU, (was using vitamin C powder-just a smidge-but concerned about negative interactions with heart meds), and about 1/2 ml of water, and about 1/8 of Gerber Baby's First Foods Sweet Potato into a small bowl. I syringe it into a 3ml syringe and give it by mouth to Myrna (and was to Cooper.) It did help to improve Cooper's kidney values somewhat. We will see in September if they are improving Myrna's values or not.
[Editors note: September blood work showed improvement for kidneys to filter out sodium, glucose, magnesium-values that were high in July; BUN dropped slightly from 34 to 31-a normal level, although creatinine rose slightly to 2.7 from 2.2)
