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.

  • I wish Chewy carried the other protein options

    By on

    Arrakis has early onset kidney disease, so my options for feeding him are few. I tried Royal Canin, but he only ate it for about two weeks before he began refusing it. I switched to this in the hope that it would be better received. It hasn't been. He ate this for about two weeks as well and has began refusing it too. Both are chicken based, and I think he has issues with chicken. I'd like to try other proteins, such as lamb, or fish, but Chewy only carries the 8lb bag of lamb, and nothing for fish. My boy is a 75lb husky mix and a bag that small won't work for me. I may have to order through my vet instead, at greater cost.

    I was given an almost tearful prognosis when told my charming 14 year old male Pomeranian was in the early stages of kidney failure [discovered Thanksgiving day when he peed indoors--something he would NEVER do--and that he peed a LAKE. Startling from a small dog] and there was not really anything they could do but change food...and that dogs did not typically show any benefit to diet change, while cats did fairly well. We had 2 weeks, 2 months, 2 years...there was no way to know. Well--my little man is a MIRACLE advert for this food. He is doing GREAT--his coat is better than it has EVER been in his life--and he is doing silly, energetic puppy behaviors that I haven't seen in years!

We are almost a year in and just had blood work, physical and the Vet says he is doing great! A friend got her Frenchie in Belgium on it, she was so impressed with my guy here and her Frenchie's coat and energy has also improved dramatically. … more

    Our veterinarian prescribed Hill's Kidney Care after our dogs creatine level was high. She has been eating the food for two months now and her latest test showed the levels have remained the same which is good news!! Hopefully we will have a few good years left with her.

    Of all the special foods she’s been on, at least she’ll eat this one! It’s not mom’s home cookin’ but it’ll do. When you just don’t feel good, and have to eat that stuff the doc says, this food is one our special pup will eat and not refuse and lose weight on like before.

    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.

    My little baby girl was recently diagnosed with renal disease and was not eating. I tried renal support food from the vet which she would not eat. I have used Hill's food since day one 14.5 years ago and decided to try this. She started slowly eating it and is now getting back to her normal eating routine. Highly recommend this product.

  • Kidney Care

    By on

    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!!

    This is a prescribed product, so there is nothing for the dog to like or dislike -- she has to have it. My dog's mom (me) like it because I don't have to make a 35 mile round trip to get it -- it comes to me!
