Rated 5 out of 5 by MTM3 It worked for us!
Our little rescue girl Abby developed 2 struvite stones. We had 2 choices -- surgery or trying to dissolve them using Hill's Prescription S/D. We obviously chose the latter. We have just returned from a recheck vet visit with good news. After only 2 weeks, one stone has dissolved & the other is only 1/4 inch & barely visible. We have high hopes that in 2 more weeks when we go for our next check, that the stone will be gone. Miracle food (I was skeptical) & Abby loves it. Also, thanks to "Chewy" for the quick delivery of our 2nd case & the low price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JoyF She actually likes it, and it's starting to work already!
I was skeptical at first, since it looked like play-dough coming out of the can. Once I smashed it up and mixed in some water, and started the gradual switch from her normal food to the s/d, she was wagging while I was getting it ready, and she's cleaning it up every time I put it down. Chewy.com's service was wonderful - quick delivery, no issues whatsoever. Since she'll be on this for at least 60 days, the autoship feature is wonderful. Some of the stones are dissolving already. Next radio-gram is in January!

Rated 5 out of 5 by dilligaf Dogs love it
The Hill's prescription s/d food was recommended by our veterinarian for my dog. He has problems with urinary stones. This diet seems to be reducing the number and size of the stones. The dog, Gus, loves the food. I wish Hill's had a snack food for Gus' situation. He is limited strictly to the s/d can food. A tad pricey, but we love Gus.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DogOwner3 on prescription from your vet only
This is a medical prescription to dissolve crystals in the bladder. One kind of crystal. It is not nutritionally balanced and can only be fed for a short time. Even though your animal may only present with one type of crystal, on this food they may begin producing the other kind of crystal, so another food, Royal Canin SO, must be fed for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alli361 It's working and my dog won't need surgery
I bought this, it looks very strange but my dog ate it fine. The first couple of days I mixed it with her usual dog food and it was never an issue with her eating it. After less than a week we noticed she was no longer urinating blood - it had been heavy bleeding at times, and we now no she won't need surgery. This is only a short-term product, she will have to be on maintenance dog food for the rest of her life, but I am totally confident that it will not be a problem

Rated 3 out of 5 by BrittanyCampbell Service from Chewy great - dog food is average.
Unfortunately my dog has bladder stones and has to eat this can of congealed chicken fat with bits of pork liver in it. Comes out of the can looking like a tube of blubber. They only way he eats it is if I slice it up and bake it in the oven - 375 degrees for about 15 minutes, flip once while cooking. Hope this clears up his stones quickly. There is no nutritional value for my pup.

Dog doesn't like the food. She has to be starving before she eats it. But, it does seem to be helping clear her urine and that's what counts.

I wanted to thank you for rushing my order. Our 5 year old German Shepherd just had kidney stone surgery. The vet removed over 20 stones !! She is an inside dog and until I saw the x-rays I couldn't believe it.
Needless to say after that expense we were looking to save money on the prescription food she now must eat.
Our vet told us about chewy.com and I was so happy to see the lower price. But low prices don't mean a thing without great customer service....so again thank you!!
