The Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Kidney Care with Chicken Dry Cat 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 cat’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 stimulate the appetite and increase caloric 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.

  • My old kitty recommends K/D

    By on

    I've had my 18 yr. old Devon Rex "Angel" on K/D since she was diagnosed with kidney problems several years back. She wasn't enthusiastic about it at first, but then the "EAT" enhanced flavor and texture products came out. She gets dry and wet K/D mixed, with a spoonful of pumpkin, and now nags me to feed her 3 times a day rather than her previous 2, and cleans her bowl.

  • Hill's K/D Cat Food

    By on

    Have two 16-year old cats, one prescribed the Hill's Prescription Diet for his kidneys, tried to keep his sister on the regular food to save the expense. She got a taste of the Hill's & then went on a hunger strike - she wanted the Hill's, not what she has been eating for the past 15 years. They both absolutely love it, so the previous food was given to a friend.

    I love this food. I chow down on it all the time. It’s also good for me and takes care of my kidneys. I have a condition that I create too much calcium in my system. Kidney care keeps me and my system clean.

  • Kidney care

    By on

    The K/D cat food I purchased from Chewy has worked wonders for my 7 year old cat. She has gained all the weight back that she lost and is acting like a kitten again, sometimes even a naughty kitten. It is so good to have her back. The people at Chewy are great people to work with and I will continue to use Chewy for my pet needs.

  • Kidney Diet

    By on

    My cat, Oscar, prefers the dry kidney diet food to the canned version. It may not be as healthy for him as the wet food, but it's definitely easier to dispense and doesn't smell like the canned food.

  • Hills KD Cat

    One of my kitties is 22 years old and the other is around 14 years old. I believe the KD Catfood has helped keep them alive this long. They have been eating it for about 6 or 7 years.

  • Must be tasty

    By on

    My CKD kitty quit eating the seafood variety of Hill's, but seems to really like the chicken version. The pieces are a bit smaller. I guess he likes the taste, but he also likes to change his mind a lot. I hope this keeps. If you aren't having luck with the seafood version, I suggest giving this a try.
