Rated 5 out of 5 by GreenBayCJ It's Hills Prescription Diet
It is what it is; Hill's KD. The food itself seems to effectively manage chronic renal failure. I had one cat live for 10 years on this, and now have been "blessed" with another poor, sweet baby who [at age 14] has entered renal failure. This has stabilized his condition, and he seems to have returned to his normal demeanor and activity level. The food has been readily (actually,eagerly) accepted by both of my cats who've required it.
The price here is not any big savings over the vet's price, but it's much easier to order here than to try to get to the vet on my time off from work to pick it up during their limited hours of availability. I placed the order and provided my vet's name and contact info as requested on the Chewy site, and they apparently called to make the needed verification of the Rx. The food arrived (with the other items on my order) quickly. The package is freshness-dated, and the date is fine, not old or nearing expiration. I like the convenience and will probably continue to buy this food from Chewy instead of breaking my neck to get to the vet to pick it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pookey Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Kidney Care with Chicken Dry Cat Food
My kitty, Pookey Mittens, about 6.5 yrs old, was diagnosed with stage 4 kidney failure. I took him to the Veterinarian and they gave him fluids and pills, Daily. Needless to say, Pookey did not like this and became quite a different cat, not trusting me and his surroundings anymore. I started giving him K/D Kidney Care food along with distilled water and a powder supplement and no more trips to the Vet. Pookey has responded quite well with this treatment and his trust in me and his surroundings have been restored.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cattycat My cats like it.
I switched my cats from Iams to this Science Diet k/d dry food as suggested by my vet. They like it and are eating it.
The kibbles are smaller than Iams and I think that's why they like it. Both my cats are missing teeth so this is easier for them to swallow. Plus it's supposed to be good for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cory1 This product has greatly improved my cats health!
My cat had been on another kidney food but was starting to have more health issues. Our vet said the previous kidney food had too much sodium. After one week on the Hill's k/d kidney diet, I could see a remarkable difference in my cats health and well being.

Rated 5 out of 5 by loveskitties Great food for Kidney issues
My cat loves this food. Her vet put her on it because of having kidneys that aren't doing to well. My cat is 18 and still going as strong as she can. Chewy has the best price around. Thanks Chewy.com!

My cat's health has returned almost completely since starting this diet. He is 12 years old and was very ill. Both kidneys were testing as close to failing. Now only one tests as having a slight problem. Service from chewy was quick, well priced and they took care of contacting my vet for the prescription. I think I will like the auto refill feature that I could set up on a schedule that suits me and modify if necessary.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KellyH The one dry renal food that my cat likes
While luckily our 14-year old cat Kif doesn't have full blown CRF, two years ago, his blood tests indicated that he did have some kidney changes. Our vet recommended that we start with dietary changes rather than medication. It was a struggle at first to find wet and dry food that he liked, but we finally hit on K/D as his favorite. He gets very excited when he hears the kibble being poured into his bowl. The poor boys has also had to have several teeth removed, but that doesn't stop him from gobbling up this nicely sized kibble.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jennycat My cat does not like it.
After being given a sample of this food from the Vet, I tried it on my 19 year old cat. She ate the sample, so I ordered it online. It was a prescription food and the script had to be approved by the Vet via email before they would fill the order. After a few days the Vet approved the order, I received the food. I had ordered a substantial quantity to qualify for free shipping. However, she will not touch it! Even when there was no other food available, she would not eat at all! She did not eat for several days until I finally went and got the food she normally ate and she is back to eating again. Both of the foods were dry food, so that was not a factor. I have since discussed this with other cat owners with similar situations and they experienced tha same thing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nadal My cat hates it.
My cat ins't a finicky eater, but she hates this. She refuses to eat more than a bite or two of it, and that is with crumbling a treat or two over it to try to coerce her into it. Would not recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by veddergrrl Very good product
Of course, my cat doesn't eat this by choice because it's prescribed for her kidneys; nonetheless, she ate it straight away when she was started on it & continues to eat it with no problem, so she does like it. It does help the kidneys too, so if your cat has a problem in this area, I recommend this food.

I used to feed this to my cat exclusively but as she ages her teeth are re-absorbing making it difficult for her to eat. I have always free fed her so between can food feedings I leave a bowl of this dry food down & she doesn't feel deprived (she also has a hyperthyroidism)

When my Vet told me my elderly male cat, Stormy, was in renal failure and to switch him to this food, I was afraid he wouldn't like it.
But, I was so happy that he LOVES it! No problem switching him over from his regular food. My other cat eats it now too. It's much better on their kidneys.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Eve2015 It is alright at best.
My cat was diagnosed with the beginning stages of Kidney disease and was recommended she start a kidney friendly diet. I started her on the Hills K/D dry and wet. The wet she wouldn't touch, but the dry as time goes on, she eats on and off. I can't say she loves it, but she doesn't hate it either. Occasionally she stops by her bowl and crunches away. Sometimes adding a little water helps or adding a little bit of food she does like. The food is guaranteed so it is always worth a try if your cat needs it.

This was purchased for our rescue cat who came to us at 13 y/o with kidney issues. He wasn't thrilled with the change in food at first, but is now eating well. His health seems to be stable. We are grateful for a food to help keep him the best he can be.

by Jakeginger2 Terrific!
When our cat, Jake, who is 14 1/2 was diagnosed with some kidney failure, the vet recommended Hills KD. We were not optimistic since Jakie hates everything. How lucky we were when he took to this food right away and continues to enjoy it. We were so happy because we know how good it is for his condition and hope that it helps to slow its progression.
Thanks for such a wonderful product!
