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.

  • Picky eater

    By on

    I recently found out my beloved cat has kidney disease so I order this and received it recently. He's always been a wet food fan but I gave him the choice of this dry food or wet food and he actually went for the dry food! He really likes it! I'm really happy to find a food he'll eat that is actually good for him. This, suprisingly, was a hit. He's very fussy about about what he'll eat so this was a very pleasant surprise.

  • my senior cats love this food!

    By on

    I've been feeding this dry food to three of my senior cats (16yo, 14yo, and 12yo) since December and they all LOVE it! I was expecting to have to introduce it to them slowly but they went right to it and prefer it to anything else. I also feed them the wet food too and again, nothing but praise and empty food bowls all around!

  • I love dealing with CHEWY, whether for food or pet toys. :-)

    Not much to say about the product - I've been feeding it to our two cats for several years, at the suggestion / direction of our veterinarian. I CAN say it is lots less expensive from CHEWY than from Petsmart. Especially with the auto-reorder discount. And every interaction with the staff at CHEWY brings a smile and a chuckle; it is a pleasure to do business with CHEWY.

  • Expensive, but seems to do the trick!

    By on

    Our cat has an issue with recurrent urinary crystals. We first obtained this product from our vet. This formula, although very expensive, seems to prevent the problem. He is very happy with the food and eats it enthusiastically. Chewy's price is very competitive--ordering is easy and the delivery is prompt!

  • He LIKES it!

    By on

    No one likes to hear that their beloved cat is heading down the slippery slope of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). And when that cat has also had another serious medical issue (an esophageal stricture) that has reduced what should be a 9 pound cat to a 7 pound cat, you are desperate for your cat to eat SOMETHING. We had Zach on the wet k/d until it was clear that his stricture had eased so that he could eat gribbles again. He so prefers the crunchies - and it helps him keep his teeth strong. But best of all, he LIKES it and he EATS it and it is keeping him as healthy as he can be. And I think this fact is a perfect reason to rate this food as five-star!

  • My kidney cat likes it

    By on

    Most foods for chronic kidney disease are bland and currently my kidney cat won't eat wet foods. Of the half-dozen or so low phosphorous foods I've tried, this is the one my cat will eat. It's been a lifesaver for us, literally.

  • Both cats love this food.

    My sick cat needed this and I was hoping he would like it. Not only does he like it, he loves it and his brother who is well can eat it too and is drawn to the bowl like it has a delicious aroma.

  • Great option!

    Prescription food that my cat actually likes! I have tried many other brands and this one tops the list. Chewy also makes it easy to upload a photo of your script and auto ship!
