Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Canine Renal Health Dry Dog Food
Prescription diets are not always palatable, but my dog seems to like this fine, with a little doctoring. I add foods she can have, to make it a little more tasty. I do believe this food is helping her kidney function. I would recommend this product if your dog needs a prescription diet for kidney disease.

My dog loves his new food!
My dog was just advanced to Stage 3 Renal Failure. My vet recommended Hill's renal health food for him. We were saddened by the news and concerned that our dog wouldn't like the food. As it turns out, our dog loves it! We couldn't be happier.

Reccommended by my vet
This product was reccommended by my vet for my
almost 13year old Lab who is in the early stages of kidney failure. 'Max' is doing very well and his periodic check-ups are encouraging. As for the people at Chewy, they are the most caring people on the planet!!!

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.

Helps my Kali stay healthy!
I started feeding the K/D Prescription Diet when my little dog had an acute episode of kidney failure after having been sick with erlichosis for months while we lived in India. The vets in Bangalore had the food brought in from Hills and I put Kali on it at their request. She didn't like the canned or dry much at first, and had to be coaxed with a bit of beef broth but now she eats it like a champ and her health continues to improve. She loves both this dry "kibble" and the canned "stews" available here. I strongly believe this food is largely responsible for her recovery.

dog loves it
our dog usually won't eat dry food by itself and she eats this everyday

My senior girl loves the food which pleases both of us. When a diet change takes place, there is always a chance the animal will not like it.
I was concerned about changing my dog's diet but am glad that I went with this brand. My dog loves the food and it is easily digested as stated in the products benefits.

Same as the vet's office
This is the same thing you can buy at the vet's office but for a much better price! Oh, and free shipping!!

thought they wouldn't like it but they did!
We have 2 picky retired greyhounds. Only one really needed the restricted diet and the vet told us they might not be thrilled about it BUT both seem to really like it! Big relief for us. Also, Chewy went out of their way to get a script from my vet. It was a really busy work week and Chewy contacted the vet directly - an added bonus. Thank you.

Thoughts on KD Kibble for Dogs
I have an 11-year-old Labrador male Dog guide who has had to eat KD kibble since June. It has kept his numbers just above the normal range. But he has generally been a picky eater from the time I've had him and he really doesn't like the food. My vet tells me a lot of dogs do not like it because of the lower protein levels. He would pick out anything I would add to the food such as small amounts of finely diced chicken, or even any type of sauce on the food. So now he just has to eat it dry. He has held out for as long as 48 hours. To prevent this from continuing to happen, I have found that if I split feed at the times he really likes, such as 5pm and 10pm, rather than morning and evening, he will accept the food a little better; if your dog is like mine you might consider finding the times of day your dog might be most receptive. I considered the canned food but I'm not convinced my dog wouldn't pick it out and leave the kibble once again; right now the schedule change has been the key to successfully having him eat on a regular basis.

you gotta do what you gotta do
My 10 year old Weimar was recently diagnosed with kidney failure. My vet told me this is the food she needed to be on. My dog surprisingly likes it. I only gave it 4 stars as the ingredients leave a bit to be desired. This isn't a top shelf quality dog food, to be quite frank, there is a lot of junk in it. But, my dog has to be on it so, you gotta do what you gotta do. As a side note, chewy.com is $30 cheaper than what my vet was selling it for!!!

Shipping was fast & my dog loves it
My dog has been eating this KD Food for about a month. She eats it twice a day and seems to like it. I am hoping it will help of course because I love her so much. So far, she appears to be doing well so let's hope that is true and her life is prolonged...Live with quality!

If one doesn't work, another will
Our 11 y/o Scottish Terrier has been diagnosed with early stage renal failure. She is on many medications and a renal diet. Apparently renal diet food is not appealing to dogs we've discovered and we have to add several medications to our Scottie's food which makes the food more unappealing. But, after several tries with various dry foods, even adding a little turkey to the dry food, our Scottie girl has decided the K/D wet food is yummo!! She eats it up, medications and all. Thank you, Chewy !

My vet put my dog on this food. The vet sells it, but for at least $10 more. It came quickly. The food smelled and looked fresh. Saved me money and time. Very pleased.
