Hill's® Prescription Diet® k/d® Canine Renal Health
We have been feeding K/D wet food to our dog for over 2 yeas, since she was diagnosed with Kidney failure in July 2011. Dogs with Kidney Failure are fussy eaters and owners usually have to change food often. This is the only food she will eat and we have tried others.

Product works and my dog loves it!
Hill's Prescription Diet k/d canned food has helped my foster dog, Jamie's, kidney functions return to near normal! Jamie has been eating canned k/d food for more than a year now and his kidney function levels have significantly reduced during this time. Even better...Jamie LOVES this food! He comes into the kitchen twice a day at his scheduled time "asking" for his food!
I am very thankful for this product as it has given Jamie the opportunity to celebrate his 14th birthday next week. I hope to celebrate many more with this very special foster dog!

My Vet and I are pleased with my dog's response to this food.
My Vet and I are please with my dog's response to the k/d wet dog food. I was a little skeptical about trying a prescription dog food, but Squirty needed to get his kidney levels back in balance. He is a VERY picky eater, and I was plesantly surprised that he zealously ate the food. We've been on this diet for almost a year, and he is holding his weight, his BUM levels are much better, and his stools are consistent.
I was concerned about all the "naturalists" comments (high fat content, junk food, etc.) about prescription diets, and for me, they were unfounded. I would heartily recommend this food.

This product is excellent
My 7 year old poodle has early signs of kidney disease. My vet started her on k/d. She has been on this for 6 months and all signs of kidney disease are no longer present. the price can be a little much but if you have friends that will sign up for a hillspet account they can get a single printable coupon for $7 off of the food.

This Product is good for my dog
The food has extended our dogs life as he is in renal failure and needs a low protien diet that gives him the nutriants he needs

My dog loves this especially when I warm it up a little bit.
I buy the dry and both varieties of the canned. My dog really enjoys them all. She likes it when I warm the canned food in the microwave for 15 seconds after it's been in the fridge. I lost one of my pets to kidney disease this year, I don't want to lose another one. I hope this food keeps her levels down.

This product worked well fro my dog.
I thought this dog food was a little pricey. My dog seems to digest it well and health wise she has been well. I wish I had known from the beginning that there were coupons you could print because this has been a great relief to me. Thank goodness my dog only eats one can a day.

Keeps my dog healthy!
My pup suffered chronic kidney failure. Now he will be on k/d for the rest of his life. At first he didn't really like the taste but he quickly got over that and loves it now. I always warm it up for about 10 seconds chopped up.
This product is just so great! I'm so happy that there is a product that works to keep my dog happy and healthy!

good but would like coupons
good but would like coupons because I have 2 dogs on prescription diets. I cannot afford this and may need to buy something else without some help

My dog loves Hills Prescription Diet KD canned food.
Overall I love your canned food. After the first couple of failed attempts of trying to scoop the food out of the can with a spoon and getting it to an edible consistency, I found success with a fork. Have only been using your products for a month, but I'm hoping your food will help my dog to live a healthier and longer life.

Well beyond my expectations!
I must admit that I was skeptical about moving my 10 yr. old Chihuahua onto this prescription food. She had just been diagnosed with early signs of heart failure and was not feeling well at all. Our vet suggested she go on a low salt diet. I thought -- great, now it will be a battle to get her to eat on top of her health failing. Not the case at all with this food. She absolutely the taste -- has from day one. She feels so much better since I switched her off of the other food she had been on -- which had lots of sodium in it apparently (I couldn't tell that b/c dog food pkgs. aren't required to carry that info). She has very little if any water retention and is actually back to playing and jumping around. She begs for her food when it is feeding time. Hill's Prescription Diet k/d canned was the answer to my prayers for her honestly.

This product is worth every cent
Our senior dog has been on this food now for approximately three months. Not only is the taste appealing to her, but her health issues are under control now. I attribute this to the quality food she is now getting.

Hill's Prescription Diet K/D
There were only two prescription choices for my dog and he definitely prefers Hill's. I'm not sure why, but he goes through spells where he eats this fine - at first like it was dessert - and then he doesn't want to touch it. For his health sake, I refrain from giving him anything else and he will eventually eat it. It seems the quality of this product is very good though. I just noticed there is another flavor available so I'm going to see if the variety helps his appetite.

Product is a good product but putting a pop-top on it causes a tremendous amount of waste. It's expensive to begin with--but, adding the pop-top, means you can't apportion it between meals. It's really quite maddening. And, when you've got a dog who's already suffering from kidney issues, you're already putting out a great deal of money.

This product has helped our family pet to be happier and healthier.
I would recommend this diet to other owners whose pet is having the same health issue.

This product has prolonged our dog's good lifestyle
Our Shitzu-cross was diagnosed with advanced renal failure in October 2013. He was not expected to live much longer. We switched his diet to Hill's k/d and his health, looks, energy and attitude changed almost immediately. It has now been 10 months since he started dining on k/d and he is looking good and even has "puppy moments" from time to time. Hill's k/d is a great product that has extended the life of our wonderful pet.

Having a dog who was diagnosed with kidney issues last year, it makes it necessary to ensure he eats low protein food. K/d takes care of that issue and he enjoys eating it, recognizing when I pull the can out. It has helped him enjoy a better quality, longer life than was once thought possible.

I have a little doxie that has been using this product for the past eight years. I am so happy you have added another flavor KD-Lamb. I just started getting this and she seems to like it quiet well. Thank you for your excellent products.

Recommended by vet for my dog's declining kidney function
Don't know if the change in diet is working for my dog yet. He seems to enjoy the taste. Would love a canned food that was a little easier to get out of the can. The texture is very jelly-like.
One other suggestion- make all cans with pop top. I cannot find the lamb flavor in pop top

Great benefits, horrible texture
I have a tiny yorkie (1 lb / 15 oz) who has a portosystemic shunt & a protein losing enteropathy. We have bounced between the K/D and I/D low fat based on which condition is acting up - but both (in combination with some prescriptions) have really helped extend his life expectancy and quality of life.
The main issue we are experiencing with the K/D however is that its so thick, he has a really hard time eating it. He will spend 20+ minutes and not get through half his food.
Any advice??? Help!

This product has helped to prolong my dog's life.
It's expensive, but worth it! I believe it's helped to prolong my dog's life. Also I think the med's have kicked in:-)

It's the best thing for his kidneys to heal.
It is expensive, but he likes it and it's helping him heal, so that makes me happy.

My little bitty Macy has been eating canned K/D for 8 years, she LOVES it. I mix it with warm water and use a fork to mash up the food making a gravy. Plus it helps keep her healthy. It is expensive, but she is well work the expense.

Eats it fairly well
My long coat chi was recently diagnosed with kidney failure. She will not eat the dry version of this product, but is eating the wet and seems to like it fairly well.

My 7 year old poodle has kidney problems and this food has saved her life. She loves it clean food bowl every time and much lower protein counts in her urine. If your dog has kidney trouble this food is excellent a must have.

Our precious dog, Sophie's condition has improved with the use of this food and the medicine the vet told us to use. We are very pleased. Just wish we could get more coupons, however, as we are on a fixed income.

My Picky Yorkie Loves It!
I was skeptical about this food, having had a disastrous experience with Z/D a year ago (vomiting and projectile diarrhea). It's only been 4 days, but it's 4 days my 11yr old Yorkie hasn't vomited bile. She was on Reglan, Pepcid, and Sucralfate for several weeks, but it didn't help. A friend gave me a can of K/D to try, (I purchased several cans afterward) and I'm thrilled so far. My dog actually begs for it--a first. I mash it with a fork and add a little warm water. I was surprised to read that it's best stored in the original can, covering with a lid.
I'm hoping she continues to like it and doesn't develop any side effects.
