Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Canine Renal Health Dry Dog Food
Our dog was recently placed on this prescription food due to his failing kidneys. I shopped around, and I found the best price with Chewy. I was not required to pay shipping and sales tax. On top of that, the food arrived almost immediately. Who can ask for more? I didn't have to go shopping and haul it to my car. Instead, it arrived on my doorstep! Thank you, Chewy!

Great food for chronic kidney disease
My little boy was just diagnosed with chronic kidney disease and has to be on a special diet. We tried other brands and he seems to enjoy this brand the best - very fussy eater. Let's hope he continues to enjoy this product - smells good !!!!

Our picky eater LOVES this product!
Our dog had to switch foods due to health issues related to age. She is a very picky eater and we were concerned that she would turn her nose up at the food. Thankfully she seems to love this food just as much if not more than her previous food.

Vet Recommended, Less Expensive at Chewy's
My 14 yr old Am Staf has the beginnings of kidney failure. Vet recommended putting her on this prescription food to try to slow the progression of the kidney failure. She seems to like the taste. I made the transition slowly (1/4 new food + 3/4 old food for 2 days; 1/2 new + 1/2 oldfor 2 days; etc.) This seemed to minimize problems. After a couple of days of loose stool, all seems well. I won't know for a few months how well the food works at putting off her kidney issues.

Helps keep my dog healthy
My 7 year old Cheasapeake Bay Retriever has early kidney insufficiency and has been on K/D for about 2 years. I believe this special diet, along with her meds, has helped slow the progression of this disease process.

Health improved after switching to this diet
Our dog has been on this food for quite a while due to Kidney issues. It smells terrible, but I've never met a dog food that smelled tasty. So as long as it provides my dog the nutrition and kidney support she needs, we'll keep using it. Her health has improved greatly since we started her on this diet. She liked it at first, but seems to get tired of it after a while. We add the wet/canned k/d and some white rice to it sometimes to get her interested in eating it again.

Dog loves it
When your dog has kidney disease, you have to feed her what the vet orders! Fortunately, my dog LOVES this food. Time will tell how it treats her kidneys, but I have no worries.

Working to reduce kidney insufficiencies
My 9 1/2 yr. old black Lab was diagnosed with chronic renal failure in the fall of 2012. We started her on the k/d kibble and canned foods immediately. At her 3 month check-up, her kidney numbers are back to normal.
I DO have a labrador who will willingly chow down on anything put in her bowl. Can't evaluate whether a picky eater would make the change without complaint.

Keeps my kidney impaired pup healthy
Has successfully kept my pup's protein levels down and even got her to a more healthy level. Doctor told us we could only maintain her before she gets worse, but with this product, she's actually gotten a bit healthier.
I suppose i'll keep using it.
And it works just fine for my other dog without the kidney issues as well!

A better option for our dog
Our English Mastiff, Abby, is in kidney failure. To control the deterioration of her kidneys she has to be on prescription foods. They originally put her on a different food, which is a few dollars less expensive, but she was not satisfied with the food and was eating everything she could (which was not something she should eat) so we asked for an alternative. She has been on the Science Diet prescription now for about a month and she seems more satisfied. She still acts hungry, but not as bad as the other food. I believe this food gives her more of what her body needs to make her feel more satisfied/full.

K/D renial health has prolonged my dogs life
Thank you for the prompt delivery everything was shipped secure. My Vet recommended you, and I'm happy he did. I look forward to ordering from you in the future.

Unfortunately our little 1.5 yr old Gracie is in kidney failure. Prognosis is not encouraging, and our Vet insists this type of diet and food is a must. The bite pieces are tiny, which I think make it easier for Gracie to digest. I'm told the dry food alone is not great tasking, so we also mix in a little bit of the wet, canned food of this brand as well. She seems to like it.

Food required by vet
My little peekaboo has congestive heart disease and due to the medications she is on it has effected her kidneys so she has to have this food. My vet said that some dogs do not like the taste of this food so I got the canned version too and she eats it with no problems! I mix a spoonful of canned food with the hard food for added flavor.

Dog LOVES it!!!
Our dog has liver and kidney problems. Our vet has her on this K/D and other meds.
I was struggling with our dog to give her her meds. When I ordered BOTH dry & wet food of the same, I decided to put her meds in her food.
To my surprise, our dog ATE IT ALL!!! Including her meds. GOOD BYE to struggling with our pet to give her her meds!!!!

My Dog actually likes it.
My Dog is fairly picky when it comes to meals. I am so grateful that she actually likes it.

I recently found out that my dog and best friend, Monty, has moderate kidney failure. So our Vet recommended that he be on Hills Prescription Diet K/D. It was a lot more expensive at the Vet so I'm happy I found Chewy.com because the price is a lot more manageable and it ships right to your door so you don't have to deal with the hassle. Monty actually likes the food too which is good, because he is usually pretty picky with new foods. Hopefully this helps Monty and his kidneys!

Chewy's delivered this prescription dog food to my door for less than it was costing me to pick it up from the vet. They even called my vet to get the prescription without me having to worry about it. Less for me to worry about! I'm so pleased! Thank you, Chewy.com!!

My 14 year old addisonian German Shepard, Dutchess, has been listless and slow lately. When my vet prescribed this dog food I was a little skeptical.
Within a week she was much more active and wanted to go for walks again. I know this is not a miracle food, however anyway I can make her more comfortable and happy works for me! ( incidentally, Simmy, my Bernese also likes it! Guess I need to get more.

Just what the doctor ordered!
This literally was what my vet wrote a prescription for.
My dog is I early renal failure so she needs a low protein diet. He told me to call around to see what animal hospitals might carry it.
My daughter found CHEWY online. No need for me to drive around to find a place that carried it..... Chewy.com had it and I found my perfect way to get the food. They were great to deal with and reliable.

kibble is small for both small and large breeds
For a prescription diet, the kibble is the right size for both small and large dogs which is great. I mix my with a little water, salmon oil and add fresh vegetables and a small amount of can food with it. Of course I got the ok from my vet first. My dog, who is 83 lbs, seems to like it this way.

add water for better results
My dog likes this food most when we add water to it. The vet recommended this and it seems to work great. We have always fed her dry so I wanted to try it first before paying the extra cost for the canned and it seems to satisfy her. We have had to increase the amount we feed her because it doesn't seem to fill her up like her nonprescription food did.

This product brought my dog out of acute renal failure
Our dog Sparky had just gotten a diagnosis of acute renal failure and was tried on several other renal food but he just wouldn't eat them. After giving him some of the K/D he started eating it just like he did his old food. He is continuing on this food and his blood work is showing continued improvement. I am so thankful for this food.

Our little two pound Pom was recently diagnosed with kidney disease and we were instructed to put her on KD food. Since then she has gained some weight and is back to her own self again. She loves the kibble and also the wet food. We love ordering from Chewys. Great service and prices.

Dog does not like.
My dog spits this onto the floor. She will not eat it unless I mix it with wet food.

My dog loves his new food!
I was afraid my dog would not like this food, because I was told by my vet that these types of food are very bland. I was very happy when my dog ate all of his food. We are very happy with this product.
