Description

The Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Kidney Care with Chicken Dry Cat Food is clinically proven nutrition that can help transform your pet’s life. As pets age, damage to the kidney tissues may occur, which affects the kidney’s role to function properly and filter toxins and waste from the blood. It is irreversible, and will lead to further loss of kidney function. This may also decrease their appetite, which could eventually result in the loss of muscle mass. And so the Hill’s nutritionists and veterinarians created this special diet, which supports your cat’s kidney function and helps to sustain muscle mass—in fact, the nutrition of k/d is clinically tested to improve and lengthen the quality of life.

Key Benefits

  • Protects vital kidney and heart function and supports the natural ability to build lean muscle daily.
  • Enhanced Appetite Trigger (E.A.T.) technology helps stimulate the appetite and increase caloric intake.
  • Made with controlled phosphorus and low sodium, plus therapeutic levels of l-carnitine and omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Also includes high levels of essential amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein.
  • Made in USA and clinically tested to improve and lengthen the quality of life.

Customer Reviews

Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Kidney Care with Chicken Dry Cat Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 241.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food. Prescription? All the cats in the house eat it! My cat, Sam, likes this food also. And he does seem to be feeling much better. I'm not sure what a few people are talking about needed a "prescription." My vet recommended this food to me, but I have purchased it in more than one place and have never been asked for a "prescription." That doesn't make a lot of sense, since any other cats in the household eat the food too - hard to prevent it. It's not a "controlled substance" - it's food! It is apparently really good food for the kidneys. Not only does my cat obviously feel better, but has not thrown up since being on it (he used to throw up frequently). My first preference for ordering anything they carry, is always Chewy. Best customer service I've every received - and the nicest people. Thanks, Chewy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When kidneys are failing... This was prescribed by our vet for our old cat who is now having kidney issues. The food agrees with her and she does not vomit. I am so thankful that such a product is available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works My 16 year old cat has been on this food for 1.5 years now with no further deterioration to her kidneys even with adding none prescription canned to her diet (she won't eat prescription canned). Possible side benefit: she had 3 tumors removed within 28 months and there have been no more since diet chabge. Have no way of knowing if diet has made a difference but it was the only change made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My two cats like it. One of my cats has kidney disease and I've been feeding this to him for a few years. His kidney disease has not gotten worse. My other cat likes it too, and it's OK for her to eat it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The pieces are small enough for younger cats. My kitten is now 8 months old and loves it both dry or with a little water. The only problem is the other cats love it too!
