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.

Special Note

Hill's Prescription Diets require a veterinary prescription. This product will not be shipped until a copy of a valid prescription authorization is faxed to 1-800-619-7973 or e-mailed to rx@chewy.com.

    We feed this food to our senior cat (he is in the early stages of kidney disease) and to our 3 year old cat (he requires an SO formula for bladder crystals). My vet recommended this brand and formula because it was safe for both cats, despite their different diet needs. They both like it, they also go bananas over the pate version! Most importantly though, this takes care of both of my cats issues and it's very noticeable in their drinking and bathroom behaviors... A tad expensive but worth it!

    Lucy, who is a senior rescue, prefers this to the ocean fish flavor dry food but is not hugely enthusiastic about this product either. It is an ad lib supplement to her regular feedings and I've noticed that she nibbles at it during the night so I'm hoping she gets some of its benefits.

  • After so many years, the new improved formula didn't work for us...

    Our cat Sony is on Renal Support diet for the past 5 years. We were feeding him Hill's Prescription k/d Kidney Care chicken dry food all these years and it was a superb, fantastic food that did an amazing job keeping him healthy. Cats' kidneys begin to fail with age but Sony, although he is 17.5 years old, has only mild renal disease. No doubt that Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Kidney Care diet helped protect his kidneys and prevent Kidney failure. But a few months ago Hill's changed their k/d Kidney Care formula (Note the red banner on the package that says "IMPROVED FORMULA") and Sony stopped eating.

  • Better Than Most Renal Diets

    By on

    I've tried nearly EVERY kidney diet. And while they really should eat as much canned as possible (I always mix in a little water to any canned food for more hydration), sometimes they insist on dry. This version of K/D Kidney Care with Chicken Dry is the one dry that my renal cats will eat most readily.

  • This food works

    By on

    My vet recommended this food for our older cat (16 years old) that started peeing on the floor in the house. Within a few days the cat stopped peeing on the floor. That was several years ago, and the cat continues to do fine. The cat seems to like the food. I mix the dry food with the canned food.

    I've had to switch to prescription food for my elderly cat. She has always eaten dry food, and I'm happy to report that she likes this food, and her eating habits have not changed. I'm hoping a change in diet will help with her kidney problem.

  • New food for our kitties

    Our cats were bored with their food so I ordered this to try to stimulate their appetites and wean them off so many cat treats, LOL. This seems to have worked. They like it - thank goodness.

  • K/D Cat Food -Review

    By on

    With two senior Maine Coon cats with Chronic Kidney Failure, I knew that I had to switch to K/D kibble. AND - they love it! Both cats have no problem cleaning their dinner bowls each day! How comforting it is to know I've improved their diet, and their life may be extended, keeping my companions with me a bit longer. K/D's worth the price. And has my vote!

  • Our cat likes it.

    Our vet gave us sample packs of this and the other flavor. Our cat would not eat either sample. We took a gamble by ordering this, but it worked out. Our cat is eating it just the same as his old Science Diet food.
