Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Kidney Care with Chicken Dry Cat Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 238.
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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from necessary K/D food, extremely efficient ordering, fast delivery, exceptionally friendly service! Chewy goes up, over, and beyond any customer's expectation! I ordered the necessary K/D food and litter pans for our 18.5 yo cat. I just mentioned at ordering time (Tues.) that I needed to receive Saturday. It was to be New Year's Holiday on Friday. Chewy said they could ship following day (Wed.). Not only did they, instead, ship the same day (Tues.) (I ordered late on Tuesday), but also the order was received at our home on Thurs. !!! WOW, Chewy! You even have a super huge heart! This is the service I receive time after time, when ordering with Chewy! They hire only the friendliest people, most helpful too. Chewy is a model company for other companies to try to work toward. Best pricing too! And if a customer (or their animals) are not satisfied, or if Chewy sends wrong product, they say don't send back but donate to local Humane Society. WOW, again, Chewy! Bravo! I continue to tell many friends and acquaintences to order from Chewy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loves It!!! Our cat who recently was diagnosed with kidney failure was switched to Hill's Kidney Care formulas by our vet. He recommended to try first the soft food but our cat did not care for that very much. When we switched to the dry food he really, really liked it. We still try to give him the soft food but find we have to sprinkle on some of the dry to get him to eat it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Chicken and vegetable stew I have the chicken and vegetable stew and my Michael likes it. He has CRF and thus his appetite is rather poor but he does like this brand better than the other Hills kidney diets. And it smells good to me too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This helps keep my kitty alive. My cat has been diagnosed with end stage renal failure. A few months ago she was near death, and her lab results supported that. The vet taught me how to give subcutaneous fluids, and said I should feed her Hill's prescription K/D dry food. Between the two treatments, she has had her lab results come close to normal, and she is obviously a happy cat, playing with me, purring, eating and drinking well. Thank you, Chewy, for offering this product, and for contacting my vet for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If your cat doesn't eat it mixed with old food, try giving 100% prescription food before giving up on this food. My cat was diagnosed with kidney disease. He's not usually a picky eater, but the vet warned me that cats tend not to like the kidney prescription foods. They gave me a free sample of this food and he ate it right away, so I ordered a larger bag from Chewy. I followed the instructions on the bag and began mixing it (25% new prescription, 75% old food) with his old food to ease him onto the new diet. He refused to eat the mixed old/new food. At first I assumed the vet was right about just having to try a few different brands to figure out what he liked, but I thought this was weird since he seemed to like this Hills prescription food just fine when I gave him the sample from the vet on Day 1. So after a couple days of seeing his food bowl go untouched, we gave him a bowl of 100% prescription food again and he ate all of it immediately. Since then we have just given him the prescription food every day and skipped the mixing step and he seems to love the prescription food. So if you are following the instructions on the bag of mixing the old/new food for a month and your cat isn't eating it, I would suggest giving a bowl of just the prescription food and skipping that step altogether before giving up and trying another food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great cat food for kidney trouble I had 2 cats who were brother and sister. They both had kidney trouble at age 11. Sadly, the brother did not make it. The vet put my girl on Prescription Hill k/d for felines and at age 18 is still going strong. She immediately loved the food. She loves the dry. I give her the canned food about once a week and she loves that, too. She's losing her hearing and sight but about once a week she races around the house like a kitten. Her coat is shiny from the food. Healthy old lady cat! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Hills Prescription Diet It is what it is; Hill's KD. The food itself seems to effectively manage chronic renal failure. I had one cat live for 10 years on this, and now have been "blessed" with another poor, sweet baby who [at age 14] has entered renal failure. This has stabilized his condition, and he seems to have returned to his normal demeanor and activity level. The food has been readily (actually,eagerly) accepted by both of my cats who've required it. The price here is not any big savings over the vet's price, but it's much easier to order here than to try to get to the vet on my time off from work to pick it up during their limited hours of availability. I placed the order and provided my vet's name and contact info as requested on the Chewy site, and they apparently called to make the needed verification of the Rx. The food arrived (with the other items on my order) quickly. The package is freshness-dated, and the date is fine, not old or nearing expiration. I like the convenience and will probably continue to buy this food from Chewy instead of breaking my neck to get to the vet to pick it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loves K/D dry cat food We tried the Hill's K/D prescription canned food but our cat quickly got tired of it and refused to eat it. He loves the Hill's K/D prescription dry cat food and is eager to eat it whenever it is dinnertime!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cat loves it My cat loves dry food more than K/D cans. I have tried to give him less dry food as the moisture content is better in cans and he also throws up rather much due to hairballs if he eats too much dry food. Well, he's not having any of that! He cries till I feed him this dry food, knocks down things to get my attention. He really loves this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed nutrients This cat food is very much needed for my 18 yr old cat that is having some problems with his kidneys. My cat has some kidney stones (very small) but are not causing any blockage and I want to keep it that way. This food has Omega 3 fatty acids and Omega 6 that will help his health and kidneys. He loves this food and has no problem keeping it down with his sensitive stomach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved My Cat's Life Ally is 17 next month, kidneys are slowing down AND she got two spider bites. Very sick, lost weight down to skin and bones so tried many prescription foods and this was the one she ate. She started to regain her health once she started to eat again so now also wolf's down Hill's k/d dry as well. Acts like she is a kitten again. AMAZING!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from kitties with crd needing special kd food M kitties liked the Hills Prescription KD dry food with chicken from the first - my one kitty eats it exclusively and is very satisfied with it. At first he ate more than the 5/8 cup that Hills Diet recommends but after he got used to it-he slowed down and seems satisfied. My 10 year old kitty uses this as her "treat" as she eats wet food most of the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rex approved Renal diets are hard to find in GA. The folks that do carry them don't carry some bags, Rex is a small cat so the 4 lb bag is just the right size to keep all feeding fresh and tasty. Rex eats this food with no hesitation...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money! One of my kitties was prescribed this diet to help protect her kidneys. Luckily, all 3 of our cats love it! It's spendy, but worth it. She's doing great, and all the cats can now have healthier kidney function.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Challenges with kidney diets My one year old rescue was diagnosed with kidney disease. Not only were we shocked, but then began the long and arduous process of finding foods she would eat that are good for her condition. As a rescue, she was used to dry food, but even before her diagnosis, our household is a wet food high protein locale based on past pet health issues. The only thing she initially would eat was Hills Science Diet K/D dry food! She loves it and would probably prefer if that is all she got to eat. We still search for wet food as she is not a good drinker of water. Hills Science Diet K/D stew in Tuna flavor is her other favorite. We sprinkle in some other high quality wet food too. Chewy's has helped us in this process, which we truly appreciate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 17 yr young kitty, now has her weight back :) My 17 yr old kitty was not holding on to her weight & my vet recommended trying this. She's now, back to her normal weight & looks great. She also enjoys eating this food. When she gets a little finicky, I just put a few Kibbles of my other kitties food on top. I also love the quick delivery, the way they pack my items that are in nice strong boxes. I am very Happy with Chewy & the Customer Service is Excellent. I have 8 loving kitties at different ages of there life & 1 sweet Yorkie little girl. I buy all there different types of food from Chewy, on Auto Delivery & you can edit your items at any time which is great! And there 24/7 :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My cat does not like it. After being given a sample of this food from the Vet, I tried it on my 19 year old cat. She ate the sample, so I ordered it online. It was a prescription food and the script had to be approved by the Vet via email before they would fill the order. After a few days the Vet approved the order, I received the food. I had ordered a substantial quantity to qualify for free shipping. However, she will not touch it! Even when there was no other food available, she would not eat at all! She did not eat for several days until I finally went and got the food she normally ate and she is back to eating again. Both of the foods were dry food, so that was not a factor. I have since discussed this with other cat owners with similar situations and they experienced tha same thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Kidney Care with Chicken Dry Cat Food My kitty, Pookey Mittens, about 6.5 yrs old, was diagnosed with stage 4 kidney failure. I took him to the Veterinarian and they gave him fluids and pills, Daily. Needless to say, Pookey did not like this and became quite a different cat, not trusting me and his surroundings anymore. I started giving him K/D Kidney Care food along with distilled water and a powder supplement and no more trips to the Vet. Pookey has responded quite well with this treatment and his trust in me and his surroundings have been restored.
