NOT for advanced Kidney/Renal failure

After purchase I noticed the protein content is 12%. My vet originally recommended Just Food For Dogs (Lamb..my dog is allergic to chicken)...and the protein is between 2-6%....the Hills Beef Stew is 2.5%. Both are soft food - not kibble. He hated it and was barely eating enough to survive. So I was so happy to find a kibble renal food. My dog loved it but threw it all up by the 2nd day. Unfortunately he was in 3rd stage renal failure. I suspect this would work great for a dog in 1st stage and help keep 2nd stage at bay. Be aware of the relatively high protein content. I only used about 3/4 cup....big waste.

Great product 10/10

My Chihuahua/Italian Greyhound has hepatic microvascular dysplasia in his liver. He has regular seizures as a result. His vet suggested he use this food instead of the liver care type, as this has even less protein. It has helped him so much in combination with seizure meds and Denamarin! He is a picky eater and loves this food and the wet can food. He is only about 10 lbs and the kibble is the perfect size for him. It's very stinky food, but I think that appeals to him.

Nice and crunchy

Hills Kd is a nice, crunchy, small food, that my mini schnauzer has finally gotten into the swing of eating after adding the Hills Kd canned to it. A bit pricey but worth it for my Obi.

My little guy likes the small bite size and seems to like the taste. I love the easy to close bag.

A bit pricey but seems to enjoy

Our vet recommended putting our 15 year old Irish terrier female on this special blend for her kidney health. We transitioned her from her previous kibble according to Hill's recommendation. Dancer continues to clean her bowl each meal...such a chow hound!

k/d Kidney Care with Lamb Dry Dog Food

My little dog is loving it! She was a little tired of the chicken.

It is food

This smells disgusting. My dog agrees. I have to mix it with the other dog food for him to eat it. But it is a kidney diet and he needs it. Hopefully the blue Buffalo is back in stock soon

The best stuff

Our dog was having kidney issues on top of not wanting to eat. This food completely rejuvenated him. No more accidents in the house and his weight is back to normal. We have to mix it with the wet food but he loves both. I feel like it's adding years to his life.
