Description

As dogs age, they may require food designed to help reduce nutrient excesses that could be harmful to their system. For example, high levels of sodium, phosphorus and protein can cause increased workload in the kidneys and heart. Kidneys are very important to the health of your dogs because they remove waste substances from the blood and maintain the normal balance of fluid and minerals within the body. Once kidney damage occurs, the consequences are usually irreversible. The heart is the most important organ in your pet's body, and factors such as age or weight may affect its function. Poor heart health can affect your dog's lifestyle and mood. Because the food your dog eats plays an important role in his or her overall health and well-being, at Hill's, nutritionists and veterinarians developed clinical nutrition especially formulated to support your older dog's kidneys and heart for overall health.

Key Benefits

  • Clinical nutrition especially formulated to support your older dog's kidneys and heart for overall health
  • Reduced phosphorus helps minimize stress on aging kidneys and reduced sodium helps maintain normal blood pressure
  • Reduced protein and targeted levels of high quality protein help decrease kidney workload
  • Optimal fat levels to reduce pancreatic workload
  • Increased levels of omega-3 fatty acids and controlled calories support kidney health

    My vet said to try this on my older min pin. I have been feeding it for over a year with no problems. However my last bag I ordered my dog didn't want to eat it, I called Chewy & they quickly sent out another bag of it to try! They even waived the shipping charge I will continue to order from them & I tell all my friends about them. The one problem I have is I wish it came in a smaller kibble size for a 9 lb dog with only a few teeth it's a little big.

  • Dog seems to find palatable, but kibble is too large

    By on

    I started my dog on a combination of the wet and dry G/D two weeks ago per vet directive. I was surprised that the dry kibble is so large, bigger than two other Hills Science Diet prescription formulas I have used for other dogs in the past. All my dogs have been in 10-15 lb. range, and none could eat this size food. It's barrel shaped, not flat discs, so I added hot water to soften, but still she was spitting them onto floor and eating just the wet. I thought at first she didn't like it, but after I smashed them up and put back in dish, she ate fine. Now I smash up a cup at a time each day before putting in her dish with wet. I could just go with wet food only, but my dog is not even 2 yet, I started my dog on a combination of the wet and dry G/D two weeks ago per vet directive.

I don't know why Hills doesn't offer it in a smaller size, but at least she will eat it and that's what matters most right now. … more

    A 15 year old beagle girl with cushings,kidney & thyroid problems & on medications began not eating most of her regular food. Her vet recommended GD. Now she loves to eat both the canned & dry GD equally well.

    I have a 10 year old Samoyed that has had problems with wetting the bed and accidents in the house.We have tried several diet changes with no luck. When my vet suggested to try G/D, what a difference! No more accidents and she is acting like a puppy ! The diet made a great difference !
