Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Feline Renal Health with Chicken Canned Cat Food, 5.5-oz, case of 24

Kidneys are very important because they remove waste substances from the blood, and maintain the normal balance of fluid and minerals within the body. Once kidney damage occurs, the consequences are usually irreversible. Because the right nutrition can positively impact your pet's quality of life, Hill's nutritionists and veterinarians developed Prescription Diet k/d, clinical nutrition especially formulated to support your cat's kidney health. In fact, k/d is clinically tested to improve quality of life in cats.

Key Benefits

  • Reduced levels of protein to help minimize kidney workload
  • Reduced phosphorus to help maintain healthy kidney function and minimize stress on kidneys
  • Reduced sodium to help maintain normal blood pressure
  • Increased levels of omega-3 fatty acids to support kidney health
  • Increased levels of B-complex vitamins to compensate urinary losses
  • Added antioxidants to control cell oxidation and promote a healthy immune system

NOTE: Hill's Prescription Diets require a veterinary prescription. This product will not be shipped until a copy of a valid prescription authorization is faxed to 786-528-6088 or e-mailed to rx@chewy.com.

Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Feline Renal Health with Chicken Canned Cat Food Customer Reviews

Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Feline Renal Health with Chicken Canned Cat Food 4.4 5 54 54
Junk food for cats I ordered Hill's k/d for my 18-year old tabby cat Patricia, who has CRF, because her vet prescribed it. She likes it, but lost a pound during the first two months despite no change in appetite, thirst, or her litterbox. A blood panel and urinalysis showed a slight improvement - her BUN is normal again and creatinine went down by a whisker. No other explanation for the weight loss could be found. So there are only two possibilities: instestinal lymphoma or, more likely, muscle wasting caused by protein deficiency. Here is the problem: Cats are obligate carnivores, so all of their protein must come from MEAT. Phosphorus is the nutrient that must be reduced. Hill's could have spent more money on higher quality protein that produces less BUN and creatinine and added eggs to keep protein high while reducing phosphorus. But being a greedy pet food company, they chose to do it the cheap way, which is exactly the opposite of what cats need: adding protein from plant sources and parts of the chicken that do not have as much of it. Most vets know almost nothing about feline nutrition because they get their education from the pet food companies who sell this junk food, so you have to do your own research to find out what they should really eat when their kidneys fail. I did that. What I learned was the kidneys need more, not less, protein when they start failing, and there is a very easy way to restrict the phosphorus without limiting animal protein: aluminum hydroxide powder, which is tasteless and binds with phosphorus in the intestine. If your vet tells you to feed this junk food to a cat whose BUN and creatinine are slightly elevated, tell him/her no, ask for all lab results, and do homework. August 26, 2014
Seems to be tasty I had heard that renal soft food was unpalatable, so I was surprised when my cat seemed to enjoy this product. He was used to Friskies shreds/bits/tenders, and would really just lick the juice. He was never a fan of pate. However, when he had to go on a renal diet and went cold-turkey on the Friskies, this seemed to fit the bill! It's only been about a month, so I'm interested to see what his next blood work shows.

Cat appears better after just eating this food for 7 days. My cat developed kidney disease and this food was recommended by the vet. She appears to tolerate and it seems to be helping her. I would recommend this food if you cat has similar issues. May 2, 2014
I'm so thankful there is a food like this for my aging but still oh-so-loveable kitty I don't have time to find the ingredients and prepare them for my cat, so this food is really a life saver (literally). This prescription will not only extend my beloved cat's life, but maximize the quality of that time as well. March 18, 2014
Our kitty Masseuse loves the taste! Our cats have been eating Hills food for quite a while. Our vet said our Masseuse had to eat this special food for the rest of his life. He is 18 years old. We were afraid it may not taste as good to him and he may not eat it. He loves it. He is a happy kitty! December 12, 2013
chewy guys are awesome! My 16 years old Russian cat need science prescription food and chewy has absolutely the best $$$ and service online. They couldn't get hold of our vet because of the Thanksgiving holidays and instead of holding their shipment they send us food on good faith. I really appreciate that! Thank you so much! This is great food from great reseller! We are coming back to re order. December 9, 2013
Great for all cats! We began to use this, at Vets recommendations, for our older cat. Thing is, our other 2 cats love it also. December 6, 2013
fish flavor is the doctor suggested but you do not order it. your service is not good as you said because the doctor suggested fish flavor but you only have chicken flavor, and you told me you do not order fish flavor. You do not do the pet needed. August 30, 2014
Hill's is good, Chewy.com is better! The k/d was prescribed once the cats got old. My vet stopped carrying it so I found Chewy.com, and it's cheaper than local! Thanks a ton! October 1, 2014
Good when mixed with other food My cat needs a special diet & this came recommended from my vet. My cat isn't crazy about it by itself, but eats it when mixed with a different brand that is also designed for kidney disease diets. I do recommend giving it a try. September 18, 2014
nutritious, delicious renal health food My fussy cat immediately took to her new diet with K/D renal health canned food. It's concerning that it says "with chicken," but at least it's truth in advertising: There's a lot in this can that is not chicken. September 17, 2014
Good product and service Our cat has kidney problems. We were worried she wouldn't like this food, but she has been eating it for over a year now. We've been getting it from our vet paying considerably more than it was available from Chewy September 16, 2014
My cats' favorite One of my cats was diagnosed renal failure a year and a half ago, and has been given a diet of 50% k/d (or similar) and 50% "regular" food. My other cat has liver problems and is also on a low-protein diet consisting solely of kidney diet food. Both cats eagerly eat the k/d, and so far so good. This is the chicken flavor, and they also like the fish flavor when I can get it. September 9, 2014
Prescribed by my Vet... I ordered this special food at my Vet's recommendation. My cat loves it! August 31, 2014
excellent price and Mel eats it.. Great food for any cat lover who has a cat in the early stages of renal failure. I didn't think my cat would like it but he does. August 30, 2014
Picky cat loved it! I had to get a few cans of this at the vet for my cat with kidney problems and the cat loved it. The price at the vet was high, so I ordered it from Chewy and got a much better deal. Both of my cats now eat it and also get the same Hills k/d dry food. The automatic order makes it super-easy. Thanks Chewy! August 24, 2014
I received a sample of this product from my vet for my 14 year old cat. It has less protein content than any canned food I was able to find in stores My cat will eat this prescription food, but not all the time. I have to switch off with other brands having low protein content. I hope he will eat enough of the Hills to justify buying it on a regular basis. The product shipped very quickly and was received in good condition. I know buying it with Chewy was less expensive than ordering it with the vet. August 23, 2014
Need more flavors My cats are picky eaters; at first they ate this product well. But after several days, they have gotten tired of the one flavor and are not eating it very well now. I feel like they are starting to lose weight, may have to try a different brand with more options. August 11, 2014
cat refused to touch it My cat is normally NOT a picky eater and he completely REFUSED to even touch it. He smelled it & walked away. We tried it several more times with the same result...even added some baby food chicken (which he LOVES) to it & that was not even enough to entice him. It is also a very odd texture. He loves the pate style, but this is more 'mush'. Very loose & gooshy, not like a firmer pate. So, now I have an entire case & he won't touch it. Great #sigh# August 8, 2014
Awesome product! This food was prescribed for my 15-year-old cat whose kidney function was starting to decline. Within a few weeks of starting this new food, my cat is much improved. He is now a lot more playful than he's been in years. He no longer sleeps all day long - his energy level has definitely increased. His fur also looks so much better. This food has done wonders for him. August 7, 2014
Excellent choice for cat with kidney failure Our cat was diagnosed with kidney failure and has to be on prescription food. We tried various brands and found that Hills was the best option. It was the moistest of all the wet can foods that we tried and he likes the taste of both the chicken and fish flavor. August 2, 2014
A good product to aid in kidney disease I've been using this product for years for my cat and she's certainly benefitted from it as she'll be 21 years old in Sept. Not a bad record for this tough old gal! Altho her kidney disease is slowly progressing, this product does help to extend her quality of life and I'm pleased she's doing so well. August 1, 2014
Our 15 year old cat has kidney failure. We bought both the wet and dry food and mix it together. He loves it! Our 15 year old cat has kidney failure. We bought both the wet and dry food and mix it together. He loves it! July 23, 2014
This product has great values Our cat, 17 yr old, has been on k/d since Feb, due to stage 2 kidney disease. He likes the flavor, even though he liked the fishy product he was eating before. We are hoping to keep him around for a few more years. July 21, 2014
Required food by vet While I was not happy to feed my cat Hills since they aren't known for quality ingredients in their foods… the vet required that my cat eat this prescription food. I wish Hills would alter the recipe with better ingredients - however, as is, my cat does like this food. She loves the taste and eats it up quickly at feeding time. I've noticed that she doesn't drink as much water with the moisture content in this food. Chewy makes it really easy to submit your vet prescription too! July 19, 2014
Kidney Health What is there to say? It keeps my cat alive! Recommended. July 15, 2014
enjoyable My cat, Katie, didn't eat much canned cat food. She was picky about what she'd eat when it was offered. She had no problems with with the k/d diet. She loves it! She had lost weight and knowing she's eating helps me feel good too. Occasionally she and her roommate kitty, Pinky, will swap a spoonful of each others food. Kate gets a little variety and I don't think the diet food will hurt Pink. Katie also has an issue with her teeth so I think eating the soft patte makes us both feel better. July 5, 2014
Necessary, I suppose. Had to put cat on a low phosphorous diet for her kidneys. She eats this food reluctantly. Clearly she doesn't like it as she licks it a little and walks away. She comes back often as it's the only food available to her. She's 16 years old, and I've had her for her entire life so I know when she likes and dislikes a food. This food she dislikes. Also, for the high price, they seem to use a lot of garbage ingredients (Pork By-Products, Brewers Rice, Corn Starch, Glucose). If anyone knows a canned low phosphorus food that cats like better, please post. I'd love to give her something she likes better. July 5, 2014
Cats love it! I wasn't sure if my cats would like the chicken flavor (they LOVE the fish), but they do. It's also a little more firm than the fish flavor, so it is easier to serve from the can. The cats are happy and are now eating healthily. June 30, 2014
Effective and tasty to cats This cat food's reduced protein level allows my cat's kidneys to function better, and he seems to enjoy the taste. June 19, 2014
