Rated 3 out of 5 by PussandBoots My cats like it.
I mix it up with the ocean k/d. They like it better that way. Some batches smell fresher than others. I think they added more moisture to the recipe than what I've seen a year ago. And that's a good thing for a kidney patient.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lmhbgsu Good product
The food is a little smellier than regular moist cat food, but my cat did enjoy it at first. After a few days, he refused to eat though. My other cats seem to love it, though they don't need it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wildzcody My cat loves this food
My cat is 15 yrs old and was diagnosed a little over a year ago with Kidney issues and was put on this diet. It seems to be working great for her as her last labs showed that things were stable and in some areas had improved. I was getting the food from the Vet's office but I was having to stop frequently and it was becoming a real hassle to get the food she needed. I started ordering the canned food from Chewy and found out how easy it was to get it delivered to my door that I decided to continue getting it delivered and even started getting the dry food also. Not only is it convenient having it delivered but it was less expensive than getting it at the Vet's office. I plan on continuing to order from Chewy for as long as I have my kitty as I like being able to save time and money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lorrie Just what the doctor ordered
My vet recommended this food when it was discovered my cat's kidneys were not optimally performing. The ease with which I was able to order, and definitely the price will keep me coming back!

Rated 3 out of 5 by litter21 Why chicken when you can have tuna in gravy with vegetables?
My elderly cat was diagnosed with kidney failure after having a blood test to see if his body would tolerate anesthesia for root removal on a rotting tooth. We have fed him kibble all his life. (Truth be told, he refused for the longest time to eat anything but.) He had been losing weight, because it hurt him to eat his kibble. As a result, we decided we needed to take the wet food route.
I thought by purchasing this product I would have something "not quite so rich" for my older cat. It also comes in bigger cans which is a boon volume/cost wise. We can get two meals from one can. I figured wet food is wet food; what will it matter?
Apparently, it matters. While the prescriptive benefits are there, he prefers the texture and flavor of the tuna and vegetable stew with gravy in this same brand. This product (Chicken) is not eaten well, and I am having to mix some Fancy Feast Signature in with it so he will "take his medicine." This defeats the purpose for which it was purchased. I'm having to double up on food so he will eat the one he needs.
Spend the little bit extra for the "fancier" yet smaller cans of this brand. You will feel your money more well spent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KayleeW Great customer service, cat just doesn't like it
Chewy is amazing. Great customer service.. Food came in 2 days. Unfortunately my cat doesn't like this soft food. He just will not eat it. My other cats who don't need it will eat it. He likes the Hills kd hard food though. It must be a hit or miss with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bluejeania My cat says Yum!
My senior cat with chronic kidney disease and pancreatitis, who has always eaten canned food, started eating prescription renal food a few months ago. He liked another brand fine. A few weeks ago I offered him Hill's, just as a test, and he could hardly stop eating it! Now I alternate, or mix, the two brands. Hill's has lower protein, phosphorus, and sodium than the other prescription brand, and it has the slightly higher fat content that he loves. I'm careful about his fat intake because of the pancreatitis; so far it's going well for him. I mix his canned food with warmish water, using a stick mixer, to make a soup that he eagerly laps up. He also gets sub-q fluids every second day, frequent checkups and testing, and supplements as recommended. BTW, for anyone whose cat has CKD, the website Tanya's Comprehensive Guide to Feline Chronic Kidney Disease is invaluable as you consult with your vet in your cat's best interest. (And it's the website from which I learned about Chewy.com, which is in the best interest of my wallet!)
