I bought this stuff from Chewy because the two cans I bought from the vet were super hard and crumbly. The ones I received from Chewy were just as hard and crumbly so it seems to be the way this food is. I was told that the purpose of adding the moist food to my dogs diet was to add more moisture to help prevent the formation of bladder stones. I do not see how a food this hard can possibly add much moisture to his diet. This stuff is disgusting and I feel bad feeding it to my dog even though it is what my vet recommends. Am going to look for a second opinion and an alternative food for my dog. The kibble is fine, but this pate is awful.
My dog had structure crystals and nearly constant UTIs, so his veterinarian recommended this food. We tried Royal Canin, but it was making him vomit. He unfortunately wouldn’t touch the Pro Plan UR food. So that just left Hill’s. It has my least favorite ingredients of the 3 brands, but my dog is eating it and tolerating it pretty well. My only complaint is that it includes beef– he’s sensitive to beef, and it sometimes causes GI upset. Especially considering that this food is labeled “chicken and rice”, it would be nice if the main protein was chicken. Other than that, it’s pretty good (and that’s an issue specific to my dog). This food is definitely a loaf, it’s very dry. I add water to get it to more of a pate consistency.
I’ve read many of the negative reviews and I’ve not had the same negative experience that some of you had. I will say that when it ones to wet canned food, it all depends in where you buy it because if it is not kept in a temperature controlled environment, it can become rock hard or like a liquid milk shake. Yuk. My 11 yr old dog had several bladder stones removed and must remain on a Urinary Diet. My Vet gave me 3 cans of the Hills Urinary canned food and I ever thought my dog would eat it. I mixed it with some of the Dry Urinary diet and he loves it! His sibling who has no health issues and is extremely finicky has been eating it and loves it as well. This is my first time purchasing from Chewey so we’ll see how it goes once I receive order. Hopefully all will be well. I will update review at that time.
I buy this for my Pomeranian to prevent bladder stones and it does help with that. But my pom developed pancreatitis from the fat content in this food , which causes him episodes of vomiting, diarrhea, & not eating all day. As time went by, he now developed diabetes. He was diagnosed yesterday, due to his pancreas not producing insulin. So it’s all connected back to his diet, which is this food. This is all he has been eating for over a year and he is 9 years old. He also eats dry food off this same brand and formula. Also some cans I get are very dry sometimes.
I’m very displeased that a dog with urinary issues would have to devour beef and other ingredients that are high in purine and protein. A dog who could be at risk for urinary issues can be at risk for urine stones. To prevent this, they need a low balanced purine/protein level. My dogs are Dalmatians and cannot eat this period. I’d have to put them on a specific brand and there’s not many dog foods nor wet food that would help urine wise. Absolutely ridiculous in my opinion
My dog just loves this new prescribed dog food! She licks the bowl incessantly! It's a good thing she likes her new prescribed food that costs a pretty penny. There is no waste and I have noticed that she excreted less waste. This tells me it is high quality and her body absorbs most all of it.
Horrible food. I've seen that other people have also thought the consistency was disgusting. It is truly below the standard I would expect from the Hill's brand. It also gave my dog diarrhea. I would give it zero stars if possible.
Vet recently changed my to dog this from Purina Pro Plan Rx brand to see if she might drink less. The Hills canned food is dry and crumbly and hard for my dog to eat. She doesn't like it very much. I have never seen such dry canned food
My dog had bladder stones and very expensive surgery two years ago. Since the she’s been on this food and her health is great! Yes it’s not great looking and it’s very dense, but it’s prescription food and is sustaining her health! For convenience,I cut it into thirds then put them cut the portions into tiny cubes. I make about a weeks work snd keep in fridge and it works out great. My Westie loves it.She turns 9 next month!
this so called loaf looks like it came from a 1950's bomb shelter in someone's back yard. Wasnt expecting a brick loaf. I called them up and they were kind enough to reimburse me and asked me to donate it. Ugh cant imagine any dog eating this but I will donate it. My dog has crystals in her urine. I wanted to by a wet Urinary Care product to put on her dry prescription food to help out. I have now ordered The Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Adult Urinary SO Moderate Calorie Thin Slices In Gravy Canned Dog Food. At least this wont be a concrete blob. It's pieces of meat in gravy.
