Hill's® Prescription Diet® k/d® Feline Renal Health with Ocean Fish
Prolonging My Cat's Life
I started feeding my cat Prescription Diet k/d after he was diagnosed with kidney failure. He loves the taste so much that he begs for it like it's a treat. After a few short weeks I noticed a drastic change for the better in my cat. He started to look better, have more energy, and even gain a little weight. I truly believe this product is prolonging my cat's life.

Kitty seems more energized
My 8 year old was diagnosed with renal issues and the vet recommended your prescription diet. She liked it from the very start and seems to have a little more pep in her step lately.

new K/D formula
My cat adores the new K/D fish formula. The appearance of the product isn't very appealing but he doesn't seem to mind.

Cat would not eat it
My kitty is on KD and likes the chicken flavor of the wet food but would not touch the ocean fish flavor. She normally will eat most anything though.

Ocean Fish is still the "go to" kd food, but my cat does require some variety of her kd at meal time.
Wanting to update on my cat eating of the kd stew, but it'll only let me review once. So since this flavor goes along with my review gonna write here.(feel free to change wording, (in ahurry)
My cat started with dry kd food, and then chicken canned. Due to the renal failure her appetite hasn't been great. She did well with dry briefly, then canned chicken briefly, then we had to order the Ocean Fish canned, which she liked a lot for a while, then we received samples of the stew which she loved. We are on our 2nd case of chicken stew, if she is not real hungry she will only lick gravy, and leaves the chicken. The stew was a miracle for about a cases worth we are now switching from chicken stew to Ocean Fish and also the dry food, through out the day. Eats small amounts several times a day, if I am around to feed her. She has become picky(never was before renal failure) and we are saving the fish stew for when she gets worse, as I am sure that will be the favorite. Just wanted to update everyone that if the magic is over, go back to the fish canned and even the kd dry for variety.and of course the stew. She had been going downhill until the stew came out. Now she has lost some of the weight she had gained with the stew, but has leveled out it seems. And is back to loving the Ocean Fish as well as the other kd products.

MY CAT SEEMS IN BETTTER HEALTH ON THIS FOOD
My cat was getting sick everyday, after starting this food he has not gotten sick one time !!!

I totally believe in this food
My cat "Calvin" has been on prescription K/D for 6 years now and I totally believe that it has kept him going as he is now 19 1/2 years old. He enjoyed the dry formula when he was younger but now only eats the canned formula. He is doing well and I am so grateful for this food!

Great Taste My Cat Loves!
I am so happy that Hill's came out with the fish flavor of the k/d product. I am a Veterinary Professional, and I recommend it to clients all the time. For cats that don't like the flavor of the original k/d (some are more picky than others), this is the way to go! It is more smelly than the others, and they love it. The cats we see are all doing wonderfully on it.

This product is made with kidney issues in mind, but it needs to be more tasteful so the cats will eat it.
While I agree, this product is a product that must be used for any cats diagnosed with kidney issues, you need more flavors. There are so many flavors on the market because cats are so finicky, can you widen the flavors for all of your prescription diet food?

My senior cat LOVES this food.
My cat is old and has health issues. Since eating this food he seems to have more energy and be more alert. He is waiting for me to get up in the morning to eat. When I return from work he is by the door waiting for me to get his dinner. The only problem is it is very difficult to buy the ocean fish variety of the KD food. The KD chicken variety is in plentiful supply, but unfortunately for me, Oscar is old and finicky and prefers the seafood.
Thanks for making such a cat palate pleasing food.

I have confidence that this Brand and type of catfood is excellent for my cat as far as health wise. He doesn't exactly love the taste of it, though. Also, it is very expensive. I appreciate that there are coupons for my use.

Considerable improvement in my cat's health
My beloved aging cat was diagnosed with early kidney failure--of great concern was the amount of weight she'd been steadily losing (and she's small to begin with). My vet recommended the k/d, so I tried it (the ocean fish flavor). My cat has put on weight, seems much more alert and playful, and I am hoping the k/d will continue to keep her in good spirits/health for much longer to come. It's pricey, but worth it if it helps to preserve her health!

Ocean fish is the flavor of choice.
My cat loves this food. She didn't care as much for the chicken flavor. She is 17 and is finally eating properly to maintain her weight. I tried another manufacturer and Hills came through.

Great product at reasonable price.
My cat loves the taste of the ocean fish, and his urinary tract is functioning correctly thanks to this product!! I am going to try the chicken flavor, too.

My cat really likes this flavor beter than chicken
I mix it with a little KD dry for some crunch. This diet really seems to help with my cat's kidney function and I am happy that she will eat it and enjoys the taste.

Helps my cat
The vet said that my cat needed prescription food. I brought home Hill's oceanfish, chicken, and another brand to see which my cat would eat. He liked the fish. Since starting him on this food, he is doing much better, and is back to playing. He will also eat the kd dry food.

While my cat enjoys your k/d ocean fish, she doesn't like "leftovers". Would you consider also selling smaller cans--about half the size of the 5.5 oz cans.

Senior cat savors new flavor!
My senior cat was recently placed on the Prescription Diet. Yoda simply devours the Ocean Fish k/d. He begs for more!

Good food but at a price
My kitty did not end up having the kidney issues that my vet claimed, but I figured it couldn't hurt for her to continue eating the wet food that she normally loves. After two weeks of mixing this very expensive food with my cat's normal wet food, she just started to refuse to eat the wet food all together. She definitely would not touch the chicken flavor wet food at all....

K/D diet wet foods
My cat will barely eat this, both the Seafood and Chicken. The price is fair, but the food is useless if the cat doesn't eat it. Seems to me that more variety should be made, not all cats are fish eaters. Doesn't do an animal any good if they won't eat it. CKD animals need to eat.
My recommendation is to put LESS phosphorous in all of the Hill's cat/dog foods, at least the animals will eat that.

Moist and palatable
My cats gobbled it at first...not so much when it's offered daily.

Consistency is not the best
Good smell to it. Cats love it freshly opened, though not as much after refrigerated or warmed up again.

Thank you for this product
Thank you for making k/d canned food with oceanfish. My kitty MerryBelle prefers seafood flavors, so she will eat this whereas she would not touch the k/d chicken canned food.

My cat loves this
When my cat needed to go on a renal diet I bought the Prescription Diet dry food. She loved it and it worked for quite a while but then she started vomiting it up. She also became dehydrated so my vet recommended the canned food which only came in chicken flavor. She loved it for awhile but then got tired of it and refused to eat it. I also noticed that the consistency was somewhat rubbery. My vet said many of her customers said their cats stopped liking it. Luckily, Hills came out with a new flavor for the renal diet. My cat is crazy about the new ocean fish flavor! It smells better and has a wetter consistency which makes me feel good that she is ingesting more liquids. This new flavor was literally a life saver!

I believe you have changed your Ocean Fish formula recently. When you opened a can of the other formula, it had a hard fat layer, and also tiny hard bits my cat did not like. I decided to try it again in the past month, and no more hard layer and tiny, hard, dry bits are no longer present. She now loves it. I hope you change the chicken flavor as well so it does not have those tiny bits.

Our cat loves the favor and is eating well again. So happy, to see her putting on weight and looking healthy. It mixes well with a little extra water which keeps her nicely hydrated.

Excellent taste. Hard to please cat loves the fish flavor
With my cat Mr. Beasley being diagnosed with kidney problems I have had to change his diet to lower protein dry and wet food. My Vet had recommended the K/D so I tried it. My Cat can be a bit finicky about food especially going from the very tasty high protein wet food but he loves the Ocean Fish formulation. Mr. B never has had a problem with wanting to eat it. I wish you had some other flavors available like beef and turkey.

New Ocean Fish flavor for wet KD
My mature cat did not like the wet KD chicken variety of this food but finds the fish flavor more appealing;) He also eats the dry KD kibbles quite well.

Great to have another option of flavor!
I was happy to see a new flavor of k/d canned come out, unfortunately my pet did not seem to like the texture--the texture seems a bit "stickier" then the k/d with chicken.
