Description

As dogs age, they may require food designed to help reduce nutrient excesses that could be harmful to their system. For example, high levels of sodium, phosphorus and protein can cause increased workload in the kidneys and heart. Kidneys are very important to the health of your dogs because they remove waste substances from the blood and maintain the normal balance of fluid and minerals within the body. Once kidney damage occurs, the consequences are usually irreversible. The heart is the most important organ in your pet's body, and factors such as age or weight may affect its function. Poor heart health can affect your dog's lifestyle and mood. Because the food your dog eats plays an important role in his or her overall health and well-being, at Hill's, nutritionists and veterinarians developed clinical nutrition especially formulated to support your older dog's kidneys and heart for overall health. Plus, with the S+OXSHIELD seal of confidence, the Aging Care formula meets specific nutrient standards shown to promote a urinary environment that helps reduce the risk of struvite and calcium oxalate crystals.

Key Benefits
  • Clinical nutrition especially formulated to support your older dog's kidneys and heart for overall health.
  • Reduced phosphorus helps minimize stress on aging kidneys and reduced sodium helps maintain normal blood pressure.
  • Reduced protein and targeted levels of high-quality protein help decrease kidney workload.
  • Optimal fat levels to reduce pancreatic workload, plus increased levels of omega-3 fatty acids and controlled calories support kidney health.
  • Aging Care recipe has not changed—it offers the same great taste and benefits as it did prior to the introduction of the S+OXSHIELD seal of confidence.

  • He Likes it!

    By on

    This prescription kibble is necessary for Scoobie's health. The amazing part of it is that he actually likes it, and he gobbles it down. That is a blessing. They are good size pieces and they have the crunch factor that he likes.

  • need larger size

    By on

    I have a 70 lb dog who requires a low fat, low phosphorus food with moderate protein. She is 2 years old with chronic kidney disease and recently developed pancreatitis. Previously, she ate hills k/d. This meets her needs, but we really need a larger size bag. This lasts about a week and half. I really wish Hills would lower the price of these prescription diets, or use better ingredients (organic, etc.) If my vet were more amenable to the idea, I would switch to a homemade diet. I think it would be both cost effective and more wholesome.

  • Snowpi's food

    By on

    I recently acquired my mothers senior dog as she could not care for him anymore. He needs to eat prescription low-sodium food to prevent kidney stones. Chewy.com was able to contact Her vet and verify the prescription and send a bag of food straight to my door in about three days time. It was so easy I started getting my dogs food from Chewie.com as well. And their pro plan was so much more economical plus I didn't even have to go out and get it! I put all the food on a delivery schedule so now I don't even have to think about it. I'm going to order the kitty's food from them as well! I wonder if chewy carries chicken feed?

    My westie was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. I have to limit her sodium, and protein intake. I did some research and found G/D. My Vet said it would be perfect. I was really worried Harmony Grace would not like it but to my surprise she LOVES it! I received my order super fast! As always Chewy is awesome!

  • My dog that eats anything, won’t eat this

    By on

    Not palatable. Kibble size too large. My dog is not a picky eater, but shows no interest in this food. Fortunately I was able to switch to Hill’s KD diet, and she’s back to looking forward to every meal.

  • Special RX diet g/d

    By on

    My 12-year-old spaniel had been on k/d RX diet for years. Now has developed chronic pancreatitis and the k/d was no longer suitable. The g/d was prescribed to accommodate both kidney and low-fat needs. It did not seem as palatable as the k/d she was used to. But, she has gotten used to it. It has been about a month and so far, she seems to be feeling better. Other than diet, there is no treatment. It is expensive and does not come in a larger size. Vet said g/d is higher in fiber than the k/d and is sometimes used for weight loss which seems likely to me as it does not appear as dense.
