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!

My cat's kidney functions have improved
My cat, Bear, was diagnosed with age-related kidney failure in Dec 2013. My vet recommended Prescription Diet k/d. Because I have two cats that are fed together, they both eat this food now.
In addition to the dry food, Bear receives a tablespoon of k/d wet each day at dinner. I use it to disguise the medication he takes to control the acid in his stomach. Bear literally begs for the food at dinner time.
He is not on any medications for his kidney failure. I had his levels re-tested in mid-February and since being on the k/d one level remained the same and the other level improved.
The food is pricey but it seems to be keeping Bear stable. I have been able to download $7 coupons from Hills website.

I work as a vet tech and after bringing in my own cat for an examination I found out that he has problems with his kidneys. My vet recommended trying the K/D food for my cat and I must say I have not seen her this happy in a very long time. She absolutely loves it especially the canned chicken food.

Cats love the taste!
I have had 2 cats on Feline k/D dry and have had great results. My first cat was diagnosed with kidney failure in 2009. I started her on k/d immediately. She was 19 years at the time, she lived to be 21, passing away in 2011. In Oct. of 2013, my 15 year old kitty was also diagnosed with early renal problems, put her on k/d dry and retested her last month. Her blood values had improved. Both cats loved the food and I hope to keep the 15 kitty going for another few years. Definitely worth trying

Great Product well accepted by cats
This diet has helped my cat's kidney values decrease and overall health increase. She has put weight on, feels better and is back to sleeping with me every night. I was scared when she went into kidney failure, but it is so nice to have a therapeutic diet, something she eats and does not have to be forced. She loves the food and is pigging out again!!! She is now 15 years old.

My 17 yo cat enjoys k/d dry!
When I was told that my 17 year old furry little Angel needed to be on a special diet because he was in early renal failure, I was devastated. He's a very sweet boy and we live him so much. Also,I had already gone through, it seemed liked, every brand and flavor of soft food because of his bad teeth and was able to find one flavor of one brand that he tolerated. So,I was very concerned that finding a prescription kidney food would be just as hard. My very said most cats prefer the soft Science Diet k/d, do I left with 3 cans and my fingers crossed. He ate it ok for about a week, then decided it wasn't for him. So I picked up a bag of the dry k/d, immediately, he dug right in. I was cautiously optimistic, after the experience with soft food. But one year later, he still loves it! I have little bowls of food in most of the house so he can eat without much effort, poor little guy. Thank you!

It did its job.
My vet put my 15 year old cat on this food, and her coat feels better. The other cats have decided they like this better than the other food available to them.

Healthful, palatable nutrition for my aging cat
After getting diagnosed with some kidney issues, our cat Buster was prescribed Hill's® Prescription Diet® k/d® Feline Renal Health by our veterinarian. Not only has Buster's condition improved, but so has his appetite.
The great experience with Hill's Prescription Diet® k/d® Feline Renal Health has caused me to take a new look at Hill's other products for my other pets.

Cats love it
With two cats having the beginning of renal problems, I had to switch to Hills KD dry food to insure their health. Both cats love the taste of this food! It is very moist and remains moist until the bag is gone and I get another one from my Vet. Much unlike other dry cat foods which are "dry" as their name suggests. I am very pleased with the Hills KD.

My cat was diagnosed with renal failure over a year ago. He was not doing well and I didn't have hope that he would last much longer. The Vet recommended I change my cat's diet to KD for both wet and dry. It is now over a year later and my cat is doing well and still has a strong appetite for both the dry and the wet food.

Best in smaller bags
We have been feeding the K/D Diet for several months. Our vet did indicate that some cats are finicky and that we may need to find a food that would be palatable for our cat.
Our cat took to the food right away, once a UTI had been cleared up. We did notice that if we opened a fresh bag before the older bag was finished, the cat would prefer the fresher food.

My cat would not eat at first, but is now eating daily
Most importantly my cats kidney functions have improved with this product

The product seems to work
Having urinary issues with some of my cats we have had to go over to the KD formula. Seems to be doing what we want it to do.
The only down side is that unlike the CD formula that came in a 17 lb bag, the KD only comes in a 8.5 lb. Meaning I have to buy many bags each month. So the cost is right up there.

My cat only gets the best
My cat Sabastian has been diagnosed with beginning stages of renal failure...his amazing vet recommended K/D wet food and with a little coaxing, he has enjoyed the taste of the food. All of his levels has improved and he has been a much happier cat. We hope to have him around for years to come. Thanks for looking out for the health of cats around the world!!

Can't live with out it.
Our buddy, Calab, our orange kittie, needs to have the Science Diet to keep is lower track working. We depend on it.

The best food for my older cats
My older cats needed this kind of food due to their health issues...they like it and eat it well...not like some other products we have tried

My cat has had kidney disease, when she was first diagnosed I was told she would only live another 3 -6 months. But that was almost 2 years ago. She is doing very well eating K?D prescription diet dry food.

Easy and effective
k/d diet is keeping George the cat's health under control. George (who is female) loves both the dry and wet versions and eats it readily. I can do open feeding with her on the dry kibble, so it is super easy for me.
I use the canned version of k/d as a treat, which she really loves! Overall, I'm very happy that this prescription diet has worked so well for her. She's been happily and healthily eating it for over four years.

I have been a Veterinary Technician for over ten years, and a pet owner all my life. My two cats that I have had since birth have been fed Hill's Science Diet Kitten, Maintenance, Light, and Hairball throughout their lives. They are 14 1/2 and 16 1/2 years old now. Three years ago they both entered into early renal disease. Having fed Hill's all their lives I immediately started the k/d diet. My vet (and boss) gave me a sample of another prescription kidney diet and they didn't like it. Smart kitties. They ate the dry k/d for over two years and to help them out I started adding the canned k/d twice a day as well. They are thriving with shiny coats and healthy appetites. Thanks to Hill's diets they are living long, happy lives with a very happy owner!

Now our 19yr old Princess likes this one!
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. Unlike the canned, she actually likes this dry and eats it regularly. She's been on it for two weeks now and doesn't hesitate going back to it for more. Since she primarily favors seafood, we were a bit surprised to see her actually enjoy this one, but are ecstatic that she does. Hopefully, it helps her out.
As a result of our finicky Princess enjoying this, we have no problem hesitating it to others.

Cat food for renal health
My cat is 14 years old and was prescribed this food by my vet 18 months ago due to some test results. My cat is doing well and has more energy than she had previously. She appears to like the taste even though she tends to be a little picky about her foods. I keep the food in an airtight container and it stays fresh for the entire bag. I would highly recommend this food for any cat if prescribed by your vet.

This product is palatable.
My cat recently started on k/d and she is doing well. Her Dr. is satisfied with her results so far.

One of the best renal products
Hill's prescription diet k/d is one of the only foods that my cat will continually eat. Although she will not eat the wet variety, the dry food keeps her kidneys as healthy as they can be. I am very happy with this product!

She LOVES her K/D
My cat has been on K/D for almost 2 years. She has never turned her nose up at it like she did with some of the previous brand of cat food she was fed. Her vet recommended the change since she's a senior citizen in the cat world (but don't tell her that). I've been very pleased with the Hills Prescription Diet food since she's been on it.

My Cat Enjoys It
My cat is eating again and gaining weight. But I wish it was available outside of my veterinarian's office. It's pretty expensive for a 4 lb. bag.

CAT CAN'T LIVE WITH OUT IT
Caleb can't live with out it , no he really can't . We have tried other specialty foods for his problem but they don't work.
We love our orange cat so much we will do anything to keep him.

We had to change over from the C/D formula to the K/D.
Right now we are just waiting to see if the K/D helps.
The only downside I have is that unlike the C/D which came in a 16 lb bag, the K/D largest size is 8.5. Having 8 cats eating this, we have to buy 2 bags every 2.5 weeks.
I wish the company would make the larger 16 lb bag for the K/D, as I can not be the only multiple cat owner who is using K/D.
Plus it would be really nice if you offered more coupons to help defer the cost.
