Hill's Prescription Diet s/d Canine Dissolution Canned Dog Food
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!

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!

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

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.

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.

This prescription diet helps prevent further bladder surgery for my little Bichon.
The folks at Chewy go above and beyond. They couldn't reach my vet to confirm a prescription for my dog, so they emailed and called me. I simply took a picture of the prescription and emailed it to them...easier than going to the vet's office to pick it up!

He actually eats it...
When we opened the can, we were certain he would take one look at this stuff and turn the other way. It looks like something from a high school chemistry project. But it doesnt smell and it he not only tolerates it, but LOVES it. During his last stint with bladder crystals costing us a fortune in cathaters and overnight vet bills, if he'll eat, Ill keep ordering it. Chewy also has the best prices Ive found so far

I'm hoping this food will prevent my cavalier from having surgery to remove bladder stones. She eats it very well! There seems to be some inconsistency in the texture of the food. The first case I purchased was rather crumbly and the second reminds me of gelatin. As long as she keeps eating it well and it dissolves her stones that's all I ask. I was a little disappointed that several cans were so dented that the cap to refrigerate the unused portion wouldn't go on. Chewy.com had the best price I could find.
