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. Chronic kidney disease is common among older pets, as well as reduced mobility or cognitive function—which can significantly impact the quality of life for your pet. 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.

Key Benefits
  • Controlled phosphorous and low sodium help protect vital kidney and heart function.
  • High levels of essentials amino acids for building muscle protein improve the ability to walk, run and jump in as little as 28 days.
  • Enriched with antioxidants and therapeutic levels of omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Formulated to increase vitality and alertness in older cats, as well as improve joint function.
  • Designed to stimulate the appetite and made in the USA with thoughtfully sourced ingredients.

Transition Instructions

Pets can be sensitive to sudden changes in their diets. For this reason, it is extremely important to follow a gradual transition plan to best support your pet's health and product effectiveness. It is recommended to follow at least a 7-day transition plan before exclusively feeding your pet a new food. Cats will often refuse mixed diets, so we recommend adding the new food to a separate bowl from the old food. Start by mixing 75% of your pet's current diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the current diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the current diet with 75% of the new diet. On Day 7, you can feed your pet the new food exclusively. Ask your Veterinarian about the best way to transition your pet to a new food.

    Vet approved and delicious

    By Sadie on Feb 10, 2021

    My senior kitty has kidney problems and also tendon deterioration in his left shoulder. I was worried about how much his medicines were going to cost me without pet insurance until I did some research and found this food. My vet wrote me a prescription for it and my kitty has started running and playing again.

    It's a winner

    By Sophie on Feb 9, 2021

    Our 10 year old cat Sophia seems to be enjoying this formula of the Hill's Prescription Diet cat food. Thank you -Sophia is kind of fussy about what she will eat. She doesn't even eat treats. This food is a winner in our book. She likes it!

    Will not eat

    By Barb on Jan 15, 2021 Top 1000 Contributor

    My Shiba will not eat this, and she loves chicken. She's 19years young and knows what she likes and this will not do. Followed instructions, and introduced this slowly with her older food. Mixed it with k/d soft and offered it plain. Even tried wetting it a little. She will not eat it.

    Cats love this

    By Kate on Nov 16, 2020

    My cats, 16 and 17 years old, love this! I was worried it would taste different then the one for just kidney function but it seems like they enjoy eating the one with added mobility more! Wish it wasn’t so expensive but their health is so important, especially at this age.

    Nope. Not a win.

    By Colorado3 on Aug 23, 2020

    I bought this for my old lady kitty, knowing my other two cats would have access to it. Absolutely none of them will eat this. They do like some other kidney diet foods. Big bummer and now I can't return it.

    She likes it!

    By Cassie on Jun 25, 2020

    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.
