Hill's® Prescription Diet® k/d® Feline Renal Health
Helped my cat live a long time!
I have been feeding my cats K/d for numerous years ever since my boy cat was starting kidney problems. It helped greatly and my boy cat lived to be 20 years 6 months old and he went to the Rainbow Bridge November 12th. My female cat went to the Rainbow Bridge in January of this year at 22 years old. I feel that feeding them k/d really helped and my vet said that my 16 year old should keep on it. It is great that you have food geared to a certain problems for both cats and dogs. I highly recommend it if your vet tells you to buy it. Yes, it's expensive and wish more coupons were available in the coupon sections for the prescription food, but it is definitely worth the price to keep your fur babies with you for as long as they can live.

Effective Cat Food for Renal Health
My cat has been eating this food since being diagnosed with renal failure in October, 2011. She enjoys the taste (even the wet food) and she gained back most of the weight she lost when she got very ill.

She's like a new cat!
My cat was diagnosed with kidney failure nearly 9 months ago. They told me she had anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months left. They told me to feed her the prescription KD food to help. It sure did! She's more social, friendly, and a happier cat. She has more energy and is still doing well. I am grateful for Science Diet Prescription food. It gave me my baby back!

Cats enjoy eating it.
Being difficult to determine the effectiveness, all I can really say in the short time we've been using the product, is that the cats seem to like the food. I'll trust the vet and Hill's that it will help keep our cats urinary tracts free from (or minimize) any issues,

Very helpful to buy the exact formula we need
When you have an animal with health issues, it's really great to be able to match the food to their problem to help us stay out of the vet's office.

So glad you make the k/d in smaller pieces!! My 16yo male was having problems he seems to be doing well. Thank you. Is there any way you might come up with some treats for the senior cat with kidney issues? I am hesitant to give mine much more than his regular food. Thank you.

Put cats' health back on track
It took some time for them to accept the different flavor, but urinary health seems much better after 3 weeks.

This product seems to keep my cat's condition from getting worse.
I have been using this product for over a year. It was recommended by our vet. Initially I tried the canned wet food. Since my cat (Bob) was use to only eating dry food after two cans of wet food (same product) switched to only the dry food. Since my cat (Bob) does not like stale food I buy the 8 lb bag and divide into 3 plastic bags. This works out real well and Bob eats a normal serving every day. Only when I open a fresh bag of quality non-prescription dry cat food for my second cat (Betty) I need to keep an eye on Bob so he does not eat Betty's food. After Betty's bag of cat food has been open for two weeks, Bob no longer tries to eat her food. Instead, he acts like he is trying to cover it like his messes in the litter box. Since Bob's been eating this for over a year he still acts like before he was diagnosed and needed a special diet.

This product apparently tastes good!
Our senior cats, ages 19 and 18, both have some renal deficiency. Our veterinarian recommended Hills Prescription Diet k/d for them and they both love it. They are usually very persnickety about their food so this is unusual .. and great since they're SUPPOSED to be eating it.

My cats love it!
Several of my cats need K/D diet. This has helped greatly for years with their kidney levels.

Based on vet recommendation, I use this for several elderly cats but the cost is terrible.
My 5 cats are over 11. The vet recommended KD for particular health issues. The cost to feed these cats is extremely prohibitive and the price keeps going up. I am not happy with the economics of using this product.

The only choice
My10 year old kitty was diagnosed with kidney decline 4 years ago. My vet recommended the feline K/d to help it not get worse. Well…it actually got better. We were both very excited. Her levels have stayed at the improved numbers since and have only now begun to decline again very, very slightly. She's no spring chicken, but knowing that her food can have such and amazing affect on her health blew my mind and I could not be more thrilled. It's pretty expensive but how can it not be worth it?

The cats love it
We had to get the K/D for our oldest cat and the rest like also!

One of my cats was just diagnosed with kidney failure. He was on C/D food for urinary issues past few years an I'm guessing due to the high sodium an protein it caused his kidney issues so vet says he needs K/D it's a pricey an not in a 17.5 pound bag like I'm use to buying.. I hope with a lot of the reviews I have read my kitty jumps back to himself an gets his weight back.. I have two younger kittens that are about 5 months an it's hard as they can't have the K/D food as they need the high protein due to still growing . My kitties are used getting self feed an now I have to watch carefully an put food up at nite.. if anyone has ideas or a trick for me to help my kittens stay out of the K/D food please let me now...I just pray this food brings my cats spunk back like everyone's reviews say..

It's not convienent to obtain, only vet's have it and it needs to be special ordered.
I'm on a fixed income, disability. I have 4 cats on the KD, 2 are 14 years old, because of their age and health, 2 are 5 year old with crystals in their urine. I'm being told that if they do not have this food the 2 older ones will die and the 5 year old ones have to have this for the rest of their life. I think pet owners should have more options for their pets. A more acessable place to purchase it and not so costly. $40.00 for an 8 lb bag for 4 cats barely lasts a month. This is in addition to my other cat food purchases for my other cats. Thank you...

The food has a smell my cat loves
I have a very picky cat. I was really surprised when he was very excited to eat this food. He loves the taste and seems to be very satisfied after eating.

This product has good features
If your cat has renal problems, I would say this is probably the best food to fed them. I tried other products from the grocery store and couldn't get her to eat it. She loves this product. The only problem being it is quite expensive compared to the grocery store brands. It seems like it is helping some although I doubt if it will cure her entirely.

this product is what my cat needs to live a healthy life
I like the quality and nutritional components of this food. My cats love it. It's easy to get at my local vet. Wish the cost wasn't so high compared to non-prescription food as it's a lifetime diet and I have 2 cats eating it even though only one cat has the problem.

This product smells good & appetizing.
My cat, Harry, loves this food! The food quality is always consistent in appearance & aroma.

My Cat Responded So Positively....
For years my cat was on CD's because of a urinary tract infection that almost killed him. He never had that problem again but at 15 yrs old recently began to drink water excessively, his fur became dull and shaggy looking and he didn't have a playful spirit like he used to. At his annual exam his vet determined he now has kidney concerns so changed the diet from CD's to KD's and in 2 weeks time my cat is like a brand new kitty! He's playful again and his coat is more shiny. He still drinks lots of water, but that's good for him since he'll soon be 16 years old on his birthday! Thank you so much for having a prescription food that truly has prolonged my cat's life on more than one occasion!!!!! Sherri, Dallas/Ft Worth TX

Our vet recommended that we feed this to our 15 year old cat and she has been on the food for almost 2 years. She seems to like the taste and she has more energy than she did previously.

May have saved my cats life!
My cat, Max was diagnosed with failing kidneys. The vet recommended Hills Prescription Diet k/d. I was a little worried as my cat is a very finicky eater. Luckily he loved it!! He seems to be bouncing back quite nicely. Even though I haven't had a new kidney test, I can tell my his personality and his litter box, this product is doing the trick!!

This product has helped my cat. Sherman is 19 years old.
Your reninal K/D is very expensive. I think that if any customer that buys as I do to keep my cat healthy with your product should have a price break on every can and every bag that is bought. QED QEF

Several of my cats enjoy this food.
Feline Prescription KD has improved over the years. 30 years ago none of our cats would eat either the dry or wet versions. Now it is palatable to them. These are obviously not the same animals but I believe the comparison is valid.

We are stunned by Squeeks' turn around.
One month ago we took our fourteen year old 'Squeeker' boy to our Vet, thinking we would probably have to say good by to him, he was so very ill. The Dr. said he was in early renal failure, and needed to be hydrated, and given antibiotics. He also advised putting him on k/d prescription feed. Today, he is a new kitty. He loves the k/d, and isn't interested in eating anything else. He runs and plays like he is four years old instead of fourteen. We have four other sweethearts, and they all eat the k/d now, our Vet says it is good for them too. This feed is very, very pricey. Being on a fixed income it is difficult sometimes, but we will always find a way.

KD dry cat food is keeping my senior cat's health steady.
My senior cat eats the KD Prescription died dry food without issue, & it's been keeping her on an even keel for several years now. She had pancreatitis 2 years ago, & then renal failure set in.
Working wth my vet, we got her stabilized & she's been on this food ever since. I think it's been a big part of keeping my cat going & I hope she has many good years ahead of her!

My 14 year old cat was diagnosed almost 2 years ago with early renal failure. Our vet recommended that we change her food to the Prescription K/D Renal food which we did immediately. She has regained some of the weight she lost and she has more energy than before. She likes the food so I don't have any problems getting her to eat it. We are very happy with this product and will continue to feed it to our cat as long as our vet recommends we do so. I would highly recommend this food to anyone whose vet has suggested they switch their cat over to it.

My finicky cat enjoys K/d
My cat Loki (14 yrs) was eating C/d, but I had to recently switch him to K/d based on the veterinarian's recommendations. Though, I was worried about that due to his picky eating habits. Well, the first night of offering Loki a small amount of the K/d proved his taste for it would not be a problem. He devoured it then, and he still does these few months later. Thanks for making sure it was to his and many other finicky felines liking!

This product was recommended by my vet a few years ago for my now 17 yr old cat.
I cannot truly know if the product has kept further renal concerns at bay, but is the main food that my cat eats, and I believe that she is doing well enough for her age. The only concern is that I have to buy the smaller bag, as even about 1/2 through that bag, there must be a change in taste, for she doesn't eat it as energetically compared to a freshly opened bag. And while I tried for a while, I don't supplement the dry with wet cat food, since she also grows quickly tired of that
