My little girl, a Boston Terrier, has eaten high quality food for all of her 9 years without ever any issues. But upon learning that of her kidney issues, we had to go to Rx renal care food - either Hills or Royal Canin. She has so disliked the Hills that she's refused to eat anything for over a day at a time, and when I finally got her to eat it by combining it with some (vet approved) ground beef, she threw up 7 times. After two days of refusing food, the only way i could get her to eat ANYTHING is by giving her the old (NOT renal) food. Obviously, I've ordered the other brand and am praying that goes better. My own health issues have precluded me from working recently, so the fact that these foods are insanely expensive (and unreturnable), combined with all the additional vet bills (and the fear of losing my little girl) has made this experience a nightmare. How much is Hill's fault? I don't know. For all I know it's very well made, but just repulsive to my dog. But DEFINITELY start off by ordering the smallest size possible, in case your little furry buddy doesn't like it any better than mine.
My very senior cat who is very picky actually eats this food. Not with alot of enthusiasm but she seems to eat this over the canned version. Wish Hill’s would make a few different flavors tho. She has stopped vomiting since she’s been on this so that scored points too. Its a very gummy like consistency. Glad I don’t have to eat it! :)
Unfortunately my little baby doesn't like this food. I bought this in May it's now August and I have the entire bag Full. He takes a piece and spits it out. I give it to him in hopes of he's hungry enough he will eat it but he refuses and is loosing weight. I would like to go back to the other version of this food. At least he ate that here and there. I thought I was doing something to help with the added mobility health since he is an Italian Greyhound and has fragile legs. Big Disappointment.
Frankly, our dog has always been food-obsessed, so it's no surprise that she'll eat this dry Rx food. What IS good, is that it is for both her (newly diagnosed) kidney disease AND her significant existing mobility issues. Too early to tell if it helps either. Kibble can be given as a small reward, too and will "gravy-up" when I add water to it.
SO FAR SO GOOD ON OUR DOGS NEW DIET BUT EXPENSIVE BUT IF OUR DOG CONTINUES IMPROVEMENT GREAT
We recently switched from the k/d to the k/d j/d for my elderly dog with kidney disease and arthritis. She has this in combination with the k/d wet food. It's been 5 months since we discovered her kidney disease and she has been holding steady so far!
I noticed that my dog has been eating more of this particular food than previous Science Diet food.
We never got a chance to see if this food would help our dog. She passed before the food had a chance to work. My dogs death was due to vet negligence.
My senior chihuahua had lost his appetite and was declining. The vet said his kidneys were going, and prescribed Hills Prescription Diet k/d so we decided to give it a try. My doggie's appetite returned and now he's got a new lease on life. The light in his eyes, the spring in his step, are back.Thank you Hills!
This food/medicine combo has been perfect for our 14yr old Llasso. He has a new pep in his step.
