Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Early Support for Cats

Groundbreaking Nutrition for Kidney Health

Like humans, felines need their kidneys in tip-top shape, and Hill's k/d was thoughtfully crafted to protect them. Controlled levels of phosphorous and sodium help protect kidney function while omega-3 fatty acids help fight inflammation. Specially made for cats with the first stage of kidney disease, it gives your kitty the care she needs for better tomorrows.

Hill's alliance with veterinarians puts them in a position to find a nutrition recommendation for your pet, no matter what health issue your pet is facing.

Formulated by Veterinarians

Hill's Prescription Diet started with a veterinarian's belief that some health issues could be managed through nutrition. What began as a theory has now been proven through extensive research by a team of over 220 vets, PhD nutritionists and food scientists. The results can be seen in Hill's Prescription Diet therapeutic pet foods.

good food in theory but cat isn’t into the taste

I really like their food and research behind it. Unfortunately my cat just doesn’t like the dry food. He will eat it, but reluctantly and I have to doctor it up to get him to do so. The wet food from their prescription kidney line is a huge hit with him. Unfortunately it is just too pricey to feed the wet prescription exclusively. Try to get a sample or small bag to see if your cat will eat it before committing to a larger bag. Mine finished his, but has a strong preference for the purina line.

Apparently quite tasty

My cats with renal disease both really like this dry food. I am pleased that the ingredients are healthy according to everything I've researched and talked to their vet about. Would definitely recommend, especially if you've got picky eaters. Your vet can give Chewy the prescription for this. I just had to order it and it was not sent until they confirmed it with my vet.

Cat had the usual reaction

As often happens, my cat seemed to really like this food at first. That lasted a few days. Then it went back to the usual situation -- she'll eat it if I mix in some non-prescription food. That's better than her reaction to some foods, which she will refuse to eat no matter how much non-prescription food I mix in. But when this food is gone, I will probably be going back to the Royal Canin kibble. That food she was not super excited about, but she did eat a moderate amount of it the whole time the bag lasted.

Very slow response to contacting vet

The food is what the Vet prescribed but it took you a week to finally email my vet for RX. Sloppy, sloppy. And the vet charges the same price. With shipping it’s more with you.

Rating of dry K/D food

My cat wouldn't eat. Turned her nose up at it. She did however like the wet can food.

Something Important is Missing

I'm grateful to have found this item at Chewy. My cat, who now needs to be on a kidney diet has adapted well to this food. However, we need the canned version of it as well and it has not been available at Chewy for at least the last month that I have been checking. I can get it at my Vet's - but it is VERY expensive there! Please help us, Chewy!!!

Cat wouldn't eat it

I was excited the first day when my cat gobbled it up. The next day she turned her nose up at it and never ate it again. A waste of my money. She does love the wet food by the same company, though. I would give 5 stars for that one.

Satisfied with k/d Early Support Chicken Dry Cat Food

It has been difficult to find a kidney diet that my cat with early kidney issues likes. She wouldn't eat the regular k/d, and hasn't much liked other brands of kidney dry foods. But the Hills k/d Early Support Chicken Dry Cat Food has been something she'll gladly eat. I'm happy to have finally found a kidney diet that meets with her approval.

Annie's new food

Annie recently tested for early chronic kidney disease. She is 16 years old. I wasn't sure how she was going to take to the new food. SURPRISE!! She loves it!!! Thank you Chewy for providing this prescription food!!
