Description

Support two age-related conditions with the singularly great recipe of Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Kidney Care + Mobility Care with Chicken Dry Cat Food.

Luckily, nutrition can play a key role in managing both, which is why the Hill’s nutritionists and veterinarians developed this clinical nutrition. Not only can it support your cat’s kidney function, but it also helps to improve his mobility and increase his cognitive alertness and vitality. In fact, the nutrition of k/d is clinically tested to improve and lengthen quality of life.

Adjust feeding amounts as necessary to maintain optimal weight. If you are unsure, ask your veterinarian. For best results & safety practices: Gradually transition to your pet's new food over a 7 day period. Exclusively feed the recommended Prescription Diet dry food, canned food & treats. Keep fresh water available at all times. Have your veterinarian monitor your pet's condition.

Transition Instructions

Begin the transition by mixing both the current food and their new cat food together. Gradually decrease the amount of the current cat food while increasing the amount of new cat food. Continue to do this over a 7-day period. Transitioning slowly can result in fewer digestive issues and better acceptance of the new cat food. Mix 25% of the new food in with 75% of the current food for the first 2 days, then mix 50% new food with 50% existing food for the next 2 days, then mix 75% new food with 25% current food for the next 2 days. By day seven, you can feed your cat 100% new food.

    She likes it!

    By on

    Can't speak for every cat, of course, but mine LOVES this food. Ever since the first night I put some down for her, she's asking for it alllll the time! That's a relief since one never knows if kitty will like what she/he gets. And it's especially risky with with an expensive prescription diet that cannot be returned. I took a chance because she also likes the wet food version of "k/d + Mobility". I might, in fact, replace her regular treats with these kibbles too! That's how much she loves them. So in this case, kudos.

    Bring your cat back to life

    My cat has been on SO for 10 years. These past years he sleeps a lot and has arthritis. I thought he was just getting old. When systems seem worse I took him to the vet to find out his kidneys are failing. Just changing his food and L Lysine it has turned around in just one week.

    My cat loves this. He was getting so he wouldn't eat the canned k/d so as a last resort I thought I would try the dry. And he loves it, he is putting on weight and playing again.

    Picky Cat Enjoys It

    By on

    Our little old man has lost a lot of teeth and prefers soft food, but he also enjoys crunchies and he is able to eat this food without issue. The pieces are small enough and he likes the flavor. He has only been on it a few weeks, so we need to wait to see if it helps with his kidney/bladder issues, but so far so good.

    Dowager Duchess Recieves Great Service

    By on

    I am a 19-year-old dowager duchess who is used to being pampered. My servants recently needed my special food and the vet was out of it. My servants checked with Chewy.com and it was on the way in a hurry. Good thing, too, as I would hate to have to break in another set of servants at this point in my life. Thanks, Chewy.com!
