I’m sure the formula is healthy as far as kidney care. The problem I have is that it is far too wet and dense in texture. Rather than a “grind” as described and pictured, this food is a paste or pâté. The more I try to get it into manageable bites for my toothless 13 year old 4lb Maltese, the stickier and more smashed it seems to get. When she tries to eat it, the food winds up smashed and smoothed down into her bowl where she can’t get it out. She has to work too hard to eat this formula. The stew type is easier for her but its gravy creates a mess in her Maltese beard. I was hoping this “grind” type food would solve the gravy issue with the stew but I can’t let my tiny doggo struggle to eat. She’s going through enough with kidney failure as it is.
This canned food is for dogs with kidney problems and I wasn't too keen on opening cans, but it's well worth the extra steps to provide 10 year old Dixie with a food she absolutely adores.
My Yorkie likes the chicken one the best out of the three. He eats it right up. I really wish the chicken one came in 5.5 ounce can though like the other two. Or at least the chicken cans had pull tabs like the other two (the cans I got of the chicken flavor didn't have pull tabs. Please please make the chicken ones in 5.5 ounce cans. But overall my dog likes this renal food.
Another reviewer described this as a "gelatinous, can shaped glob" and that is pretty accurate. Unlike the chicken and veggies or beef and veggies varieties, it comes out in a solid yellow-brown chunk and you have to spend quite a while dicing it up with a spoon to get it to mix in with dry food. After all that work, our dog gave it a resounding no thanks and refused his entire meal. We buy cans to make the dry k/d food more palatable to him, and this was an utter failure. The cans we got also did not have pull-tabs, which made them pretty inconvenient, though the point is moot since we can't feed the other 11 cans anyway.
when I recived this package many of the cans were dented. There was no damage to the shipping package, so I assume it left the original facility in this condition. Not entirely happy with this shipment
Great service fast shipping, and a good price for the wet kidney care. But the kidney care dry food price is super expensive as other sites sell it for $53 and you sell it for over $100. Thank you!
My (almost) 16 year old Cavapoo had been on Merrick for 14 years so I wasn't sure if he would like a change in his food but his vet prescribed this to help his kidneys. He loves it! And he's eating more and his poop is firmer so no more need of Glandex. Chewy, as ALWAYS, was very helpful and even contacted the vet for the prescription. So happy with the food and so grateful to and happy with Chewy!
He had trouble eating had lost a pound. A lot for a dog that was 9 pounds, trying it for a month & will repeat blood work.
Received my order and this case has no pull too, have to use a regular can opener. Which is fine but the image shows a pull top. My dog seemed to like the flavor though more than the beef.
Though he loves the beef stew food, my dog refuses to eat the chicken flavor. I wish that I could purchase a few cans of each flavor in order to determine which ones my dog likes.
