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.

  • Gobbled it right up

    By on

    My 13 1/2 year old pit mix was recently diagnosed with kidney failure and the vet recommended the HILLs K/D. I received it in less than 24hrs from Chewy.com how awesome is that?! He hadn't eaten for two days but as soon as I filled his bowl he gobbled it up. Some reviews said it had a bad smell to it but it smelled like any other dog food I have purchased. Keeping my fingers crossed that this helps my baby.

  • Dogfood probably works well for kidney problems

    By on

    I have 2 dogs in the house with me and the pomeranian I got the dogfood for is 14 1/2 he eat the food for a couple of days and then refused to eat more however this may be due to medical condition. My chow chow loves the food. I am not sure why so many say that their dog want eat it. I believe I would recommend it as I believe the reason my pomeranian wouldn't eat was his medical condition.

  • Great product

    By on

    We almost put our dog down as his kidneys were failing and on top of that he had a UTI. He would not eat anything. Vet put him on antibiotics and gave us some Hill's k/d canned food. Well that first day Ceasar ate all of his food for the first time in a week. He is now on the dry and he loves it just as much as the canned. It is a great product and I am very glad they are around. Ceasar is back to his old self again barking and running around.

  • My spunky dog is back

    By on

    14 year old lab mix here with decreased kidney function. She was drinking and peeing and drinking and peeing and was a bit lethargic. After a few days on this food she's back to normal and, despite old hips, has a spring back in her step. The drinking and urination are not back to "normal" but it is better than it used to be before this food.

    By on

    I am not sure why this food has to be prescription, other than the manufacturer has made it so. I will say my dog likes the food. He is a chow hound. I hope that this food helps extend his life as he does have kidney problems.

  • Really Hard Kibble

    By on

    I first ordered the k/d can food. The food smelled really gross when I opened the can. None of our dogs would even go near the bowl. None even ate it, even after we doctored it up. Now the dry food. We tried soaking the kibble in chicken broth to soften and make it taste good and our dog now spites the dry food out all over the floor. We try to coax him to eat it by adding meats he likes and he still spites out the dry food. This is the second bag we have ordered and we have just been throwing the food away. Waste of money. Our vet was the one who recommended we give our dog this food and we have tried so many ways to get him it eat it. I wish there was a better food for dogs with kidney problems I first ordered the k/d can food. The food smelled really gross when I opened the can. None of our dogs would even go near the bowl. None even ate it, even after we doctored it up. Now the dry food.

It would be nice if it also was not so Expensive! My local pet store will take back unused food and credit me the full price. It is nice I can try foods for my rescue dogs when they are picky. However they don't have prescription food. … more

  • My picky eater loves it.

    My shi tzu turns her nose up at everything but Rachel Raye. Thought I would have a problem getting her to eat. Spoonful of Hills canned on top and she practically inhaled it.

  • My Dog Loves It

    By on

    Usually, I would need to add some gravy to my dog's food so she would eat it but with the kidney care diet, she eats it immediately. She always gets really excited when it is time to feed her which she never did before. Additionally, I like how the bag has Velcro to help keep it shut so it stays fresh. Overall, I would definitely recommend this product.

  • The dogs loved it!

    By on

    I was a little apprehensive in purchasing (expensive) this product because someone said their pooch was finicky and didn't like it. Mine are finicky too being standard poodles, but they loved it and still do. What a relief!
