Hill's® Prescription Diet® k/d® Feline Renal Health with Chicken
This product is GREAT!
The product is helping my 14 year old cat live a longer healthy life. When we switched him over we did mix new food with old food and did this slow so he would take to it. I highly recommend all cat owners doing it that way.

My cat has improved on this product.
My 17 year old cat has eaten dry KD for 2 years, but I was supplementing daily with regular wet cat food for variety and his preference. That changed recently when our vet said he could only have KD, wet and/or dry. Lab tests 30 days later showed improvement.

Saved my kitty!
My cat is only about 11, but was diagnosed with the latter stages of renal failure. Her appetite was nonexistent and she would only lap at her food (drinking the juice). If she did eat, she would get vomit. It took some coaxing to get her to eat the K/D (I mix with water), but now she crys until I bring it and gobbles it up! Now, a couple months later, she rarely ever gets sick (unless she eats too much at a time), her coat is better, and she is a happy kitty. I don't know how long it'll last, but she is thriving, much better then the vets other suggestion!

K/D feline for Renal Health
We have using K/D feline for Renal Health for years now our cats seem to really like the tastes witch is great for us as it is the food they can with the health issues.

This product is just what my cat needs.
In addition to chicken flavor, I also buy the fish flavor and would like to have a beef flavor. Buying by the case is most economical. My cat loves the dry food.

My cat seems to really enjoy this food,she patiently waits with much enthusiasm when it is feeding time. In fact she enjoys it so much that I phoned the vet to see if I would be able to give her a little extra. If we are late with her feeding, she will vocalize, to let us know IT'S TIME FOR MY DINNER!!
She would always go for the dry food first, but now she heads straight for the wet food which my vet is very happy to hear about.
It has a pleasant smell and a texture that my kitty seems to really enjoy

Great features, helped him a lot with kidney issues
You keep changing the consistency & texture of the k/d chicken, he liked it better when he started in January, he does like the ocean fish. When they take medication the smell & textures HELPS a lot for them to eat & take there medication. He doesn't eat a lot of dry k/d because it is PEBBLES of dry food. He loved the w/d dry chicken kibbles were BIG & not pebbles.

Kitty on KD for life
This food is now the only food my kitty can eat - he developed a rare form of bladder stone, more potentially lethal than others and this food, both wet and dry has been his only diet and he is thriving on it.

Good food for this health issue, cats love it, would like to see more protein.
Basically, we decided on Hill's because of the variety of flavors available, the lower price than other foods, and the low phosphate levels compared to other kidney Rx food. The cats love the flavors and especially the chicken. They also eat the dry food and like it, too. I would love to see an early stage K/d food with a bit more protein to keep a cat's protein levels up and keep them health. All the kidney Rx food on the market have very little protein even though my vet says this is enough to keep kitty healthy. So far, he's doing well and I'm hoping this food adds to his life expectancy.

This product has made a positive difference in my cats health
I would recommend k/d chicken. Even though it is expensive, it makes a difference in my cats health and well being. My Manx cat is 17 years old and happy.

Saved my cat's life!!!
We thought that our soon to be 18 year old cat, Tigger, was dying. He became so skinny, was stumbling and intermittently had an arched, locked up neck. He would just lay in his cat bed that I had on the floor near the heat register. I took him to the vet to see if it was time to say goodbye to my old pal. The vet ran bloodwork. Tigger's kidneys were functionng at half rate and could not filter things. For the past four months, Tigger has eaten both the dry and canned chicken k/d feline renal health cat food. He seemed to instantly get better when he started eating this food. He is now jumping from my bedroom dresser to my bed and never sleeps in that little cat bed on the floor anymore! Anyway, this cat food really has saved my now 18 year old cat's life. There is NO doubt in my mind about this. Thanks Hill's Pet Nutrition! Awesome, life saving cat food. Oh, Tigger really seems to enjoy the taste of this cat food as well.

A little on the expensive side, but my cat loves it.

My cat likes it ...
My cat likes this product, and it's no more expensive than the better canned cat foods. Looking at the ingredients, I do question whether it could be a bit healthier. My holistic vet, however, prescribed it, so it must be the best quality renal food available. I do mix a little bit of other food in with it to switch things up a bit because my cat won't eat the same flavor every day. I also buy the fish flavor. The important thing is that she does eat it, and she's quite finicky. I tried another brand, and she wanted nothing to do with it.

Saved Chippers Life
I, like so many other Pet lovers, am a senior citizen of very modest means. This hasn't kept me from rescuing elderly animals to give them the best possible latter years of their lives. It's pure joy for me. Recently I discovered that Chip, 16 years old, a feral that I found in the wilds while just a newborn is very special to me. Chip has renal failure. My veternarian, Dr. Johnston perscribed the Hills renal diet in hopes of helping to extend Chips life. One month later Chip is much better and the renal problem is subsiding. The Best part of all is he loves, absolutely loves, this new diet. He's perkier and shows signs of vibrancy I haven't seen for many years. The only way I can afford the diet (which I'm feeding to my other senior kitty, Freckles for preventative measure, is through the coupons Hills has sent me along with the Petsmart coupons. Thank You so very much for providing such high quality products. Oh yes, I have one more family member 'Winston' my pooch who is also rescued..from the pound and rather over weight (my fault) and Dr. Johnston recommended Hills metobolic diet. It's working. He loves the dry food and this makes me so happy as he has never relished the store bought foods. Thank your whole staff for me. You are all Pet Angels. Love, Autumn Patrick

This is a quality product
Our 16year old cat's health has improved since being on KD

Pay a little more to have healthy aging cats.
My vet recommended KD for our cats, Hank & Sophie 13years old. Hank's lab work showed early signs of kidney problems -- so we started them on wet KD. They had been strictly TD eaters (and by the way, this has kept their gums and teeth in great! shape -- no more expensive dental work.) So now we feed mostly KD with the TD always available to them. It's really wonderful to have products that I can rely on to maintain and/or improve our cats' health. KD & TD cost more than "supermarket" cat food but in the long run Hank & Sophie are healthier and vet expenses have been significantly reduced.

cat had not been eating and started eating again when presented with the k/d canned food. Will purchase more.

Cat loves this food
My cat Toby is 14 and was recently diagnosed with kidney failure. The vet recommended this food. He loves both the wet and dry. I have him mostly on the wet as it's better for his system. I have found that some cats especially if raised on dry food just will not take to wet no matter what. Food is pricey but he seems happier and more perky on k/d.

recomended by our vet for a cat that is 20.8 years.
Was worried that Cy would not find the food to his taste. But he is doing well with the food. Started out mixing his regular cat food in a ratio of 1/2 and 1/2. But have moved him on to a total diet of Hills prescription diet. I have noticed that his stools do not seem as constipated. All and all he is doing well. Wish coupons were available or if buying in bulk could get a reduction. I am just happy that he is happy with his food.

Shadow loves this as a treat

Does any cat like canned KD?
Sadly, my cat will not touch the canned KD food, although she does eat the dry. I have known many other cats through the years that had kidney failure and would not eat it either. I tried mixing it with something she does like, and that did not work. The dry is fine, but my cat has always eaten both dry and canned premium foods. Another issue I have is the size of the cans, my cat will never eat "left overs", so even if she did like it, I would be throwing half of it away.
It could be the pate texture which is not appealing. How about something chunky in small cans like your competitor has?

This product is life saving
My 19 year old cat is having renal failure. It's not dire yet but this really turned her around and she is going strong after over a year on KD. Before KD I had her on Science Diet but it wasn't enough and she was miserable.

This food is extending my cats life.
She has been on this food since I got her from the shelter at what they estimated her age to be 2 years. Her kidneys are half the size they should be so she has some issues. This food is so worth the extra price I pay. She is 10 years old now and doing pretty good, thanks to Hills.

Feline KD canned
I know that KD is specifically formulated for animals with kidney failure and I appreciate that there is a viable option for both my geriatric cats that have that specific need. They do not vomit near as often but recently have not been as inclined to eat it. I believe if there were a variety of flavors, they would not associate the smell of their food with the nausea they experience.

cat loves the food, regained weight and health
My cat loves this food. His renal health has improved and he has regained his weight.

Keeps my cat alive but he'd love more flavors
My cat can only have KD food. Whether soft or dry, he doesn't prefer the taste over what the other cat gets (hard food or soft). I wish there other flavors or something more gravy like. It's expensive but he's 18 and I'm just happy he's alive.

KD Feline Renal Health
Cats are finnicky eaters. If your vet recommends feeding the KD Feline Renal Health Chicken canned food to your cat he may not be so keen to eat it. I switched my cat straight from Fancy Feast TenderLiver w/ Chicken to the canned KD (no gradual phasing out of his old food). Before serving it to him, I add a little water to make the consistency of the food a little liquidy. I also heat it up a bit in the microwave (just 3 to 5 seconds) then mix it all up. If water does not work, you may be able to mix it with a bit of broth (veggie, chicken), but ask your vet first before adding the broth. He also prefers to eat 1 to 2 tablespoons about 5 to 7 times a day.

Our 19yr old Princess doesn't like it at all!
Our 19-1/2 yr old Princess domestic shorthair has just been diagnosed with Kidney disease. she's lost weight and her labs are high. As a result, she's been put on this food. She loves the dry, but this chicken leaves much to be desired. She tried it the first time and wouldn't go near it again even when we heated it up in the microwave. she favors seafood, so we weren't surprised when she turned her nose up at this one, but for the price and the reason for it, we were hoping she'd eat it. We're hoping she'll like the oceanfish one.
As a result, we can't recommend it. Over the years, we've have different dogs and cats that were put on various RX diets for different reasons and when it came to eating them, our animals turned their noses up to them.

The only food our veterinarian has for cat's condition
Our old cat needs a lot of fluids and this food has that. We only give him the hard prescription diet as a treat.
