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.

  • 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!

  • Cats! you never know..

    By on

    Years ago my cat with kidney issues was prescribed this food, but wouldn't eat it. Fast forward, now I have two with failing kidneys. I was reluctant to get this expensive food again, but all the cats want it! Even the healthy ones... Cats rule 5 stars. And Chewy rocks!

  • Great Service!

    By on

    It was such a great experience to able to order my cats special diet food without having to make an extra trip to the big pet food store. They were almost "out of stock" every time I went in. They would have to special order the food & I would have to make another trip in to pick it up. Now the food shows up in two days with free shipping! Wonderful!

  • I am praying that my cat Sweet Pea will live because of this food

    By on

    When Sweet Pea went for her examine on 15 May, she was diagnosed with renal failure. She eats this daily and I pray her Kidney Disease will turn around. I leave it out and she eats it at will then drinks water behind it. She has not been on it long enough to say if it will save her. Let us pray that it does. At age 14, she has seen more than nine lives and I pray her through many more.

  • Only renal support food tolerated.

    By on

    Our 14 year old cat is on a renal diet and subcutaneous fluid injections. This is the only food he reliably eats and we use it alone or added to wet food as a bribe to eat the wet food also. He remains healthy.

  • He eats it

    By on

    My very picky cat has eaten the same dry food for most of his life and always turned up his nose at anything else. When he was diagnosed with early stage kidney disease my Vet recommended this dry food and he actually eats it. That is huge. :-)

  • Hey! She likes it!

    By on

    My cat gets a can of kidney care every day and she will eat it rather reluctantly. The dry food disappears almost instantly when put in front of her. I don't have to worry that she is not getting enough nutrients because between the canned food and the dry she is getting the nutrition she needs to survive.

  • Chewey Rocks!

    By on

    2 cats age 13 and 2 cats have adapted to the new food. 3 need to be on it and the 4th has decided it's not so bad. Am hoping it keeps the kids going as they have developed medical issues.

  • Great food. Prescription? All the cats in the house eat it!

    By on

    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 My cat, Sam, likes this food also. And he does seem to be feeling much better.

  • the customer service person was so polite and professinal - I cannot say enough good things about her.

    By on

    I bought the wrong flavor for my cat and offered to send it back (I opened one of the flats) and she said that they like for their customers to donate it to the shelter. What a wonderful offer on the part of Chewy's. My order arrived in 2 days.
