Rated 5 out of 5 by DusterAdame 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ginamarie67 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KarenW 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!

by Poot Prescription diets help my cat live longer
My cat is not as happy with this food as she was with her first 21 years on prescription diets. However I attribute her longevity to prescription diets, r/d, t/d, g/d and now k/d, all dry and great vet care.

This food is prescription so it is expensive but it has reversed my cats negative lab numbers for his kidneys. Cannot live without your kidneys so I am very grateful. My cat is 18 and counting! He's my lil kitty soulmate!

by jnet This product seems to work well.
Have used prescription diet products in the past with cats and have had very good luck with them. I do believe they extend the life of your cat and the cats are pleased with their taste. Well worth the cost if you love your cat. So glad this product is available and recommended by the Vet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cintheya great food, very expensive
My cat has to eat K/D. He ate C/D for years. It's expensive and coupons would be SO appreciated, they are very hard to come by. He wouldn't touch the canned K/D, but loves the dry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chipmaria Difficult to guess overall rating
Two months ago our Vet said that our cat had kidney problems and that was why he was losing weight. He put him on the k/d prescription diet. He has gained some weight back; however, we have not tested him yet to see there was any improvements. There are a number of ways to look at the questions above to answer them fairly. The cats (I have two but they both had to be put on this diet - could not separate the food) ate the food but made it obvious that it was not their favorite by taste. The cost of the food is very expensive; however, if it helps out and provides a longer life for my cat then the value for the money would be high. I will post additional information as the results come in on my cats health.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sebastina My cat loves! this dry food. Eats every morsel!!!
My cat loves this dry food. She eats every morsel! We have an additional 2 senior cats who have just been introduced to the k/d dry. This is the first time these cats have eaten every morsel as well! Am very pleased that our finicky cats are enjoying their prescription food. It gives us a great peace of mind!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ConnieAD This product has been very essential in keeping my cats in optimum health.
I have used Hill's KD Feline dry food for years with many of my elder cats. It has been very effective in helping to keep my cats in their best possible health. I recently lost a cat at age 171/2 who had eaten KD for the last 4 years. I have 3 more older cats on this food now. I highly recommend it. I also like being able to download a savings coupon when possible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rockefeller Cat loves taste
My cat loves taste; however I am concerned about the amount of carbs in this food. I am trying to wean him off dry food, as research has shown wet food is best, as long as it is low in phosphorus, calcium, potassium, and sodium.
I don't like the corn gluten meal, wheat, and wheat gluten in this food. I will keep searching for the right balance....
Ingredients (first few lines)
"Chicken, brewers rice, corn gluten meal, whole grain wheat, pork fat, brown rice, wheat gluten, chicken liver flavor...."

Rated 4 out of 5 by Casper16 not sure
I brought this product because the vet recommended it for my cat. He do enjoy it but I this it cost too much compare to cat food you buy in the store. I know it is a special diet food but I don't it should cost double what I pay for with other cat food.

by JackieCage My cat loves the taste !
Our Vet prescribed K/D and my first though was: "Oh no, he'll never eat it". I was very
pleased when he just plowed right into the first dish! His weight has remained good and all of his lab results have remained in the normal range.
My only negative would be that the bag is not a good storage vessel. I transfer it to another container with a tight fitting lid to keep it fresh.
I do enjoy receiving the occasional coupons !
Thanks for a great product .

Rated 4 out of 5 by Elainath My girls love it
This is the kibble that my 2 girls eat all the time. They love the taste, but I sometimes worry that the dry kibble is too hard for my oldest girl's teeth (she's over 18). It would be great if Hill's offered this diet in a chewy kibble, for those really old cats.

I put my cat on this when she needed it and she seemed to really like it. She always let me know when the bowl was empty. Would definitely recommend it for clients and friends of their pets needed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PetHostess Leo will live now!!!
Leo is your poster child for Metabolic but he has now developed the need for K/D. He hated the old K/D and would not budge on it so when I knew he had to eat K/D or die I feared he would choose the latter. I took home a bag of the new K/D and he LOVED IT!!!!! He has been eating it everyday (along with a spoonful of his Metabolic wet food, cause he loves his "treat" too). He even talks me into a "few" extra kibbles of the K/D as treats. I truly feel that the upgrade in taste to K/D is saving my Leo's life for many, many more years and I am so thankful for what I call a miracle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by REast This food is saving my cat's life.
During annual blood work for my 7 year old cat, Mooshoo, she was diagnosed with stage 1 kidney failure. My veterinarian recommended I start feeding her k/d exclusively. Since starting the k/d diet, Mooshoo's kidney values have returned to the normal reference range and have maintained normal for over a year. K/d is helping to prolong my cat's life. I'm so grateful for this diet and Mooshoo loves the taste! Thank you Hills for formulating diets to keep our beloved pets happy and healthy!

I recently purchased a bag of prescription k/d Kidney Care for my cat, Tabby. I discovered the bag closure is now Velcro. I was pleasantly surprised as often the food gets stale towards the end of the bag. This will ensure Tabby's food stays fresh longer. Thank you Hills.

My cat did not enjoy the old "pellet" shaped Hills dry food. The new shape is easier for her to eat.

my cat seems so much healthier since we started using this product. She is a healthy weight, her coat is shiney, and her dander has gone way down. Also, when she goes to the bathroom it does not have such a horrible smell as it did with the other food we used.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gbgw My cat wouldn't eat it.
This food was prescribed for our 10 year old female cat. My vet gave us a sample pack to try and I'm glad he did because she wouldn't eat any of it. It smells aweful, so I can't really blame her. I know I would've been very upset if I had spent the money to purchase this very expensive food and she not touch it. It doesn't matter if it works well, it can't do anything if the cat won't eat it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ESPEE 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,

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.
