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.

This product requires a veterinary prescription. Simply provide your vet's information during checkout and we'll follow up to confirm the prescription, or email a copy of your prescription to rx@chewy.com and we'll get your order out right away.

  • So Far So Good...

    By on

    Switched to this food after my vet strongly recommend it. My 13 and a half year old pitbull was recently diagnosed with kidney problems and the vet recommended a low protein diet for her. She had been drinking a lot of water and having accidents in the house if we didn't let her out every couple of hours. Since switching to this food (and making a couple of other dietary changes) about two weeks ago she seems to be drinking slightly less and has only had a couple of accidents as opposed to having one almost daily. She doesn't seem to like the taste of the food as much as her old brand but she is getting used to it and will finish all of it most nights.

  • Very strong smelling, my dog did not like this food

    By on

    My 13 year old dog has kidney issues and our vet recommended this food. It has a very strong smelling unpleasant odor unlike any dog food we have purchased. My dog, who is usually a food hound, did not like it from the start but would reluctantly eat some, then refused it all together. I believe this is a very good brand, it just didn't work for our dog. I found another kidney care food (which does not have an odor) on Chewy for her and she loves it. Chewy was understanding and fantastic and refunded us the money for this food and we have taken it to a shelter.

  • Great experience

    By on

    This was my first order. I have many friends that recommend this service so I thought I would give it a try. It was simple and once my vet gave approval I got an email. 2 days later the box was waiting at my door. I am very pleased so far. I like that with the auto delivery I can try 5 weeks but I can always move it up or back.

    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.

  • Daisy loves it

    By on

    I’m very satisfied with this prescription kidney diet kibble. My dog loves it and does very well with it. She seems healthier and happier, as I am sure that it is easier on her system than the high quality, but hard to digest food that she was used to. Her kidney numbers went up in recent blood tests and her Vet wisely prescribed it. She is 12 1/2 years old and this food is much better for her at this stage of her life.

  • Our dog is a new man!

    By on

    Our dog Forest was diagnosed with kidney disease. Before Hill's k/d he had lost weight, was lethargic and we could tell he did not feel well. He has been eating this food for a few weeks now and is very obviously feeling better. We think he's even put on a few pounds. He is clearly happier. We are grateful to Hill's!!!

  • Dexter eats this

    My sweet 103# boy has to be on a renal diet. I was afraid he wouldn’t like this food but he eats it fine. My Yorkie that doesn’t need to be on this diet tries to sneak some of of it too!

  • 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.

  • Our dog loves this food!

    By on

    We found out our chihuahua has moderate kidney failure, so our vet suggested this brand. I was worried she might not like the food, but I found her getting more excited about this food than her previous food.

    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.
