Description

The Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Kidney Care with Chicken Dry Dog 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 dog’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 increase the appetite and food 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.

    So my dog has kidney disease we found out in January 2017. We started on the Purina NF for three months. She lost a lot of weight fast and could not keep any on so I switched. To Royal Canin it was good but still didn't help with the weight. Then finally we switched to Hill's she put on weight and running around like a puppy and her kidneys are staying same not getting worst. Not saying the other brands are bad but just saying they didn't work for me and my dog. Also my mother got a dog with kidney disease and he is on the same food and his kidney are staying the same. My mothers dog is a Black Shepherd(2yrs) so its good for all sizes. She had problems keeping weight on him at the beginning also So my dog has kidney disease we found out in January 2017.

  • Kidney Care

    My dog now needs to eat "Kidney Care" prescription food and I was so worried about the waiting period for it to get to my house - I don't think I've ever been so excited to receive the food so quickly! It came within 2-3 days. My dog actually likes the food too (and he's a picky one!). Even getting the OK from the vet was done in 1, 2, 3... Ridiculously amazing. I LOVE the fact that I can also do auto-shipping - it makes things so much easier.

  • Outstanding!!

    By on

    My vet recommended the k/d food for my dog who is showing signs of early kidney failure. My vet recommended Chewy.com. I was nervous she wouldn't like the food and upset from the news. Chewy.com offered the food cheaper and with free delivery. It was on my doorstep the next day and Maisey loved the food!!

  • The smell is disgusting!

    By on

    It may be good for my dogs but they hate the taste. I can't believe I'm benefitting them and their health if I have to add all sorts of things to this food in order to get them to eat it. It smells so bad, they just walk up to their dish and walk away.

  • Huge difference for our Old Gal!

    By on

    Our 9 yo bloodhound mix was just diagnosed with Stg II kidney failure (we had attributed her recent crankiness to getting older and having anew baby who just became mobile in the house) and our vet prescribed Hill's and meds. Our Sweet Girl is back to her old self after just a couple weeks on the new food! She's happy and humbly and back to playing! Chewy was fantastic and delivered our food within a day, even with verifying through our vet!

  • Very low protien

    By on

    Given that my big boned English Cream Golden has been diagnosed with kidney disease and is used to a high protein diet I can not adequately rate this product. Kideny diet has low protein content and the caned food is very watery with little bulk. Consequently, he no longer looks forward to this low protein kibble or canned food.

  • Dog hates the new formula

    By on

    Our Chihuahua, Collin, is on a special diet because he has a liver shunt, and his liver is failing: Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Kidney Care with Chicken Dry Dog Food, 8.5-lb bag He used to love this food, and he's been eating it for several years, ever since they found the shunt. They recently changed the formula of this food, and he doesn't like it; he doesn't want to eat it, so he doesn't eat as much food as he should.
