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.

Customer Reviews

Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Kidney Care with Chicken Dry Dog Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 236.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog has used this product for a year and half now! My 2 1/2 year old Pitbull has been on this product since he was about 10 months. I found out he had kidney disease after he was neutered. The vet said it's rare for a puppy to have this but he did. Our vet recommended this product to us. After 6 months we did more test and they his results had improved. I never had problems with him eating it. He always gobbles it down like he is starving. You could never tell my baby is sick because he is 80 pounds of pure love and happiness. Hills Presciption changed some things in this product, the pieces are bigger and it has a different smell. I thought it was weird because I didn't want my dog eating something he wasn't suppose to. I use to buy it at petsmart but I remembered my neighbors buy her special dog food from chewy. I honestly love chewy because you get more for your money, shipping is free, it automatically ships (I forget until the last minute to buy dog food so this feature is awesome), it arrives in two days or less, and customer services is AMAZING. And I mean amazing if I call with anything they always ask how my baby boy is doing and even gave me a partial refund when shopping was messed up. It was fedex fault not theirs. I actually got my mom to start using this company on my dogs litter mate.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Thoughts on KD Kibble for Dogs I have an 11-year-old Labrador male Dog guide who has had to eat KD kibble since June. It has kept his numbers just above the normal range. But he has generally been a picky eater from the time I've had him and he really doesn't like the food. My vet tells me a lot of dogs do not like it because of the lower protein levels. He would pick out anything I would add to the food such as small amounts of finely diced chicken, or even any type of sauce on the food. So now he just has to eat it dry. He has held out for as long as 48 hours. To prevent this from continuing to happen, I have found that if I split feed at the times he really likes, such as 5pm and 10pm, rather than morning and evening, he will accept the food a little better; if your dog is like mine you might consider finding the times of day your dog might be most receptive. I considered the canned food but I'm not convinced my dog wouldn't pick it out and leave the kibble once again; right now the schedule change has been the key to successfully having him eat on a regular basis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Dog is Living a Good Life on K/D Dog Food Our Vet started our dog on K/D dog food two years ago, he is now 18 years old. We didn't think he would have lived as long. We recently found out our other dog of 16 years has a kidney problem also, started him on K/D and now he is bouncing around like he is a puppy again. This food is worth the extra time we have with our dogs. Glad Chewy carries a larger bag. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves this food! My dog is usually a picky eater; she nibbles her food throughout the day. With this food though, she eats it all in one sitting as soon as it's in her dish. In transitioning from her old food to this food, she picked through it and only ate the new food! It's expensive, but so worth it if you have a dog that suffers from severe kidney issues like mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves this stuff! My dog has recently been diagnoised with kidney diseases and I have been worried sick about having to change his diet. I have been purchasing this through my vet and its pretty expensive. When I found it on Chewy.com I was very excited to see that it is a little cheaper! Every bit helps! Great price and great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product has great features. My dog is a very picky eater, so I gradually started her on K/D and she loves it. She is almost 17 yrs old and I want her around for another 17 yrs, so K/D is a diet that will keep her around for a long time and am glad she enjoys her food. I ordered K/D and it arrived in 2 days. Great service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Miss Picky sometimes eats it Our tiny toy poodle was prescribed a low protein, kidney-protective diet. If we chop the 3/8" kibble up fine, we can coax her to eat it, as long as there's no human or cat food for her to smell and wish for. I wish it had more chicken flavor (yeah, we took a taste; it's very bland).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from She just can't wait! She is 12 years old now, and she was eating grain free food for about 2 years and she blood sample came out as 10 on her kidney level, and Vet recommended this food. She loves her new food and it has been a month now and she seems getting better! I am so glad she's doing better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Prescription Food When our dog was diagnosed with early stage renal failure we were determined to find a great quality food that he would eat! So far he has taken to this food and is doing great. And as a plus they even have treats that he can have too!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my dog with renal issues. I have fed Tank KD for the past 6yrs. He developed renal issues after a life threatening illness. KD has helped in his recovery and good health today. I gave a lifelong commitment to his health, as does Hills. He loves the KD chicken!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we wanted! Lighting fast delivery, I could not believe it came so fast. Cheaper that our vet could offer, and fresher. Love the heavy duty bags with the zip lock tops, keeps food fresh. Our older dog is doing well on it, well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful My vet recommended this product for my pets when they were diagnosed with heart worms. They are both doing much better now and act like they are years younger. I think this product is partly responsible for that change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is great but the greatest thing is Chewy's customer service!!!! Chewy's has the best customer service of any company I've ever dealt with period. They take care of all issues immediately, get my orders out extremely fast and even let me return items. Amazing!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The shape and size is difficult for small dogs to eat. She like the flavor but had trouble with the barrel shape and the size. She has all her teeth, but had difficulty eating it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best price around I need to give my dog this food for kidney problems. My vet said it would add two years to his life. You can only get it with a script from your vet. Chewy handled the whole process for me. This food is very expensive and Chewy had the best price. I received it within 24 hours of ordering and now have it on autoship so I never have to worry about running out. Thanks Chewy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product; exceptional service My dog was recently put on Prescription Diet k/d for kidney issues. It is expensive food when purchased from the vet. I was able to save a lot of money buying through Chewy, and received the order in just a couple of days with FREE SHIPPING. Chewy handled getting the Rx approval from my vet, and sent me emails letting me know when the order was processed, as well as shipped. I have already recommended my friends to your website!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from got kidney values back to normal! our 14-year-old lab/chow mix has recently entered early stage kidney disease and the vet recommended we switch to this food - when we checked his kidney function bloodwork about 6 weeks after the diet switch, his numbers were back to normal! "high" normal but still within normal range, which they hadn't been at the previous appointment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Dog loves it and he's a picky eater My dog was recently diagnosed with early stage kidney failure and this product was recommended by our vet to help keep up his quality of like and possibly extend the amount of time we have with him. I was skeptical as our dog is a very picky eater. However, he loves this. The only thing that I didn't like about it was the price. It is very expensive especially when looking at the ingredients in it. The food we used to feed him had a better ingredient list and cost less than this. But if it helps extend his life and make him more comfortable I guess you can't go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best for dogs with kidney problems After a bad experience with some "high quality" food, two of my dogs have gone into kidney failure. My veterinarian has put them on this food. They are doing very well and I couldn't be happier. They love the food and it has helped their kidneys return to almost normal function! I can't say enough good things about this product. It has saved my dogs' lives. If more people listened to their veterinarian, our animal companions would have much fewer health problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results! After 4 weeks on KD my labs blood work is finally in the normal range. Hopefully I can expect this for the rest of his life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves his new food! My dog was just advanced to Stage 3 Renal Failure. My vet recommended Hill's renal health food for him. We were saddened by the news and concerned that our dog wouldn't like the food. As it turns out, our dog loves it! We couldn't be happier.
