Hill's® Prescription Diet® k/d® Feline Chicken and Vegetable Stew
Even my other cat prefers this tasty food!
I needed a miracle and it came just in time! This wet food is gobbled up by my senior cat with early-stage k/d. A vet nutritionist prescribed home-cooked food (tasted delicious!), but he would not eat it. At wits end, my local vet called about this new diet food. Could not believe my eyes! My gourmet boy loves it. Even my healthy younger cat (extremely picky) prefers this over her favorite canned food. Thank you, Hill's!

My cat loves her K/D chicken stew
My cat would not eat any of the brands of prescription kidney diets we tried. I knew it was important to keep her on one to help her maintain her renal function and quality of life. Then, I heard about the K/D stews from Hills Science Diet. I tried my cat on a sample and my cat loved it. She eats her K/D chicken stew with gusto now.

We " trick " our older cat !
Our older cat, Moma Cat , showed signs of early kidney failure over a year ago and Prescription Diet dry and wet was recommended. We use the wet can food to mix her other kidney medicine that she wouldn't take and now she comes to the table twice a day for a small portion mixed with her meds. She eats it fine and her most recent blood work shows her kidney failure has stabilized and her blood levels have improved. She is looking to make it to 20 later this year !!

New k/d stews temp the appetites.
As my cat starting getting older her appetite was decreasing more and more. Our vet recommended k/d to help with kidney function and she loves the new "stew" formulas. Of course she licks all the gravy off first and then eats the chunks of food. There are never any left overs and her weight has returned to normal. She likes all the k/d flavors but prefers the chicken and vegetable stew.

I like that it is a stew.
My cat seems to enjoy eating this stew. She is very thin because of a thyroid problem, so I am glad she eats her two recommended cans each day.

My 20yr old Princess loves it! I'm glad...
My 20 yr old Princess is a fussy eater. She only prefers certain foods, both canned and dry. She likes this one a great deal. I didn't think she would when I purchased it, but she does and that is good enough for me. She even likes the other flavors.
What can I say? If she likes it, then I'm a happy pet parent.

My Cat Loves it!!
I've been using the Prescription Diet dry food for all my animals for 12 years. They absolutely love the taste. Its definitely changed their lives.

Expensive but they love it
I received a couple of samples for a senior cat that's showing some signs of renal failure. My concern was that I have 5 other cats and food can be expensive. I've spent a ton of money on special diets, grain free, etc etc. only to have my cats reject it. Thankfully this wasn't the case. My cat devoured it in a matter of minutes. This surprised me since it was the chicken vegetable stew flavor and he's more of a seafood lover. Maybe it's because it looks like a healthy homemade stew with plenty of chicken. I only wish other stores carried it or that I could order online for delivery.

My Cat Liked It
We received a sample of this from our vet clinic. When I saw it was "chunky" I was concerned that my cat would have trouble eating it. He is elderly and eating chunky wet food can be difficult for him. He can also be fussy about what he will eat and that has limited what I can feed him. He liked the food immediately and had only a little trouble eating all of it. If I mashed up the larger chunks he left, he was able to then eat them. We will be purchasing this canned food in the future.

My cat loved the flavor
My 17 year old Siamese cat is very picky, she ate the whole can and came back for more. The vet gave us two other brands of special diet pate food to try. Of the three KD chicken stew was her favorite by far.

My Cat loved it!
I wanted to review this food because I think it is great. My cat loves it and The only think I can see is that she is looking for eating it. The normal K/D (the paste one) I guess that doesn't have much taste. The texture also is good that may be another reason why my cat likes it. The only down may be the presentation, the can is too little and if is not for the size at least the number of cans should be more per case. That 's why I gave it 4 stars. I mean I have to buy 2 sets of 24 just because I give 1 can am and 1 pm but again it is not enough to get to the end of the month with it, making it more expensive than the regular. Which I can't feed her with it because she doesn't eats it.
I hope in some point Hills will come with a bigger regular presentation with the new texture or more cans in the case.
The coupons help but not enough... for the hassle.

Cats Would Not Taste It
I have 2 cats who are extremely different (different breeds, like different foods, different ages). Usually, if one cat doesn't like a particular food, the other one will love it. One cat had a health issue and I took him to the Vet. I was given a couple of different Hill's Prescription wet cat foods and a sample of this stew. Neither of my cats would even taste the stew. Apparently, it doesn't smell good enough to even get them to take a single lick. I was led to think that it's something new and that's why the Vet had been sent samples. According to my cats, it needs more work before it's ready for their consumption.

My 18yr old cat loves this food!
After starting with the regular K/D chicken, then moving to Ocean Fish flavor and eating with only mild interest, we were thrilled that our 18 year old cat LOVES this new stew formula. Eats it quickly, too, almost the whole can in one sitting. We are so excited!

Like the smaller sized can on the product
My cat is 22 and I've always fed her science diet cat foods.The regular and now the k/D diet food. I like the choice of the smaller can of K/D chicken vegtable stew . I also have a Siamese cat who has been on the Z/D diet dry food for the last 6 years and is doing wonderfully thank you for your great products . I would highly recommend them to any pet owner.

Overall very good
Nice cat food. Cole love it like he love chicken tetrazzini. Maybe that could be an idea for the next flavor...

the product does not cling to my cat's mouth.
My elderly cat seems to like this and the tuna and stew very much. He's only had it for a week, so I'm hoping he continues to like it, although it is quite expensive, I feel.

I got a sample from my vet for my 18 year old cat. She was getting bored with her old food and I wanted to switch it up.
The vet suggested I try this sample and I fed it to my cat this morning. She was SO happy that she was moaning while licking away at the food. My family was giggling while watching her eat..she was in heaven!
Hopefully she will gain some weight with this new food.

Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
My 17 year old cat ate her previous flavor of k/d just fine but this is a new flavor for her and she can't get enough of it. She follows me out in the kitchen, begging the whole time, while I dish it up for her. She can hardly wait for me to put it down for her to eat. I haven't seen her this enthusiastic about food for many years. Well done!

The stew formula was a life saver for my cat
My cat, Tippy, had gotten where she would not eat any wet foods - she would look at it and walk away. I was given a sample can from my vet of the stew formula and one smell was all it took! She especially likes the chicken formula but I trade off every other can for the tuna so she gets a change. She eats the dry in between as she is a "grazer" but she wants the wet morning and night.

My cat was not eating and quite sick, but he started eating this food! He is feeling better! It's just expensive, worth it, but pricey.

My cat loves it!!
My cat is 15 yrs old and we just discovered he has kidney failure and so we received a sample from our veterinarian's office of the new k/d stew. My cat LOVES this!! Which allows me to help treat his disease, so I love it too.

My 18 year old cat has been on k/d renal for a couple of years, it's great to have another variety for her.
Poco loved the taste and ate all of it without being coaxed. Nice to have a variety of food for her; I am sure she gets tired of the same taste all the time. Thank you!

Passes Professor's Inspection
My kitty, Professor Pickles, was diagnosed with renal failure this summer and has been slowly eating less and less of the Hills Renal dry food. She got to a crisis point where she became dehydrated and low in some vitamins because she just wasn't eating enough (and is also a bit of a princess for her wet food), so the vet sent us home with a sample of the chicken and veggie. Imagine my relief when she tucked right in! She was game with the other renal samples but this one actually seemed to delight her, especially the stew texture as opposed to the stiff pâté texture many of the other wet renal foods have. Will be asking the vet to order us some cans!

Isaac loves your new renal variety
My cat, Isaac, loves your new chicken & vegetable stew and the vegetable & tuna stew. We both thank you for adding these two very palatable foods to the too-small spectrum of, mostly non-palatable, renal foods.
We both thank you; as all crf cats and their owners will confirm, the non acceptability of the typical renal diet and a diminished appetite are not compatible for good health. I was heartened to see him chow down with an enthusiasm not previously seen and the stews lessen our stress levels.
Cats eat to live, more so than live to eat. Please start shipping to online stores for the widespread availability and increased awareness to stressed cats and their owners.
Isaac's mom, Susan

We have tried the samples we received in the clinic on several patients, and we have had a great response! Looking forward to offering our clients another option!

This product has great taste
My cat is very finicky and likes to eat a little of this and a little of that. Last year she was diagnosed with Kidney failure. Lately she has been a lot more particular in her food Your product is the only thing we have found that she eats without fail She loves the vegie and chicken taste and it is almost as if she knows it is good for her and eats it all up. So far we have only been able to get samples since our vet does not currently have any in stock. Any help you could be in that would be greatly appreciated

Sample Cans - Vegetable & Chicken Stew
I've had trouble getting my cat to eat the prescription k/d formula food. She just doesn't like it. Couldn't tell if it was the flavor or consistency but she just wouldn't eat it. When I returned the unopened cans to my vet for a refund (thank your Hill's# they brought out some samples of new k/d food to try. The sample contained two 3 oz. cans. One was Vegetable & Tuna Stew #see my other review) the other Vegetable and Chicken Stew. The food looks appetizing and although my cat usually prefers fish flavored food she seemed to enjoy the chicken flavor, too. She didn't eat it with quite as much gusto as the Vegetable and Tuna Stew but I think if your cat loves chicken flavored food they would really like this one.

My cat "loved" the sample I received from the vet.
Not sure about value for money as this was a sample product and of course free....My cat has been diagnosed with Kidney problems and was no longer interested in the canned chicken KD, My vet gave us some samples of the chicken & the fish stew and she loved them both! She was feeling better and starting to eat so much better. Of course now we are out of the samples and she is starting to back off eating as much again. Since apparently you are not selling the KD stew yet, we are ordering the regular canned fish KD. Hoping she will start eating that. I hope you will start making this product available soon. Do not know how long she will eat the regular KD fish. Plus we have to order the fish by the case, which I hate to do in case she stops eating it or passes away in the mean time.:( She seemed to have a new lease on life with the stew!!! Please make it available soon!!!! Thank you!!!
