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.

Saved My Dog's Life
When I found out my 11-year-old Pug had cancer, I was devastated. On top of that, blood work showed her to be in the beginning stages of renal failure. It was a double blow. I thought I was going to loose my baby! The vet told me they couldn't do the surgery to remove her malignant tumors because of her kidney function. I asked if we could try her on K/D and they agreed. After one week on K/D a blood test was repeated. Her kidney function was well within the normal range! She was able to have her surgery and is now cancer free! This food saved my dog's life, not only by improving her kidney function, but making it possible for her to have her life saving surgery. She is still on this food today and eats nothing else. She loves it and always barks to let me know when it is meal time. We couldn't be happier.

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.

Has helped his kidneys tremendously
My vet put my 12 year old Brittany on the Kd wet food because she was worried that his kidneys were Starting to fail. After one month of feeding him the KD wet food. His kidney counts were cut in half. Thanks for a great prescription food that has improved the health of my long time pet.

Helps his kidneys
My boy has been eating this for 1 and 1/2 yrs. now. His kidney's have improved and his lived longer they the vet had expected. But after 1yr. now he is tried of the taste, I don't blame him. I would not like to have to eat the same food over and over again.

Saved my pets life
My baby was in a life threatening stage when I started him on the Hill's renal prescription diet. The Vet was giving me the quality of life speech and said he wouldn't make it. After a week on the prescription diet, he was responding. After three weeks on the diet, his blood numbers were totally back to normal, much to the surprise of the Vet. He will remain on the prescription food for the rest of his life and well worth every penny. We do not need another appointment at the Vet until his regular six month appointment. This food literally saved my pet's life..

Our precious baby's condition has seemed to improve.
We are so happy that our precious baby's condition has seemed to improve with the use of this food and a supplement the vet prescribed. We can't imagine life without her.

THIS PRODUCT SEEMS TO BE GOOD FOR MY PET
MY PET ENJOYS THE TASTE OF THIS CANNED FOOD, AND I WAS WORRIED SHE MAY NOT LIKE IT. IT SEEMS TO HAVE GIVEN HER MORE ENERGY.

My yorkie needs this product.
I am glad that this canned food is helping my 15 yr. yorkie.
However, it is quite pricey. I am buying12 cans every 2-3 wks. and it is expensive that often. My vet has excepted my coupons when I am able to get one printed. (not too often).
It has increased in price several times. I would like to get a little more help from Hills and get a few more coupons.
Other than the price. this food has helped my pet a great deal. thank you, Gerri

My dog loves the taste
My 13 year old Shih Tzu has always been a picky eater.I would have to hand feed him most of the time to get him to eat until he was put on this food. He loves this and eats it all up by himself!
April 26, 2014
Does the trick!
My 10.5 y.o. Airedale was put on this diet after being diagnosed with renal failure. I mash it up in his bowl with a potato masher and add enough
boiling water to make it a porridge consistency. Add two ice cubes to cool it off and he LOVES it! He was on a kibble diet prior to his diagnosis and so I was a bit concerned how he would react to this new food. NO PROBLEM! He can't wait for his breakfast and dinner of K/D :-)

Only K/D food my dogs will eat.
Both of my elderly dogs were prescribed K/D. After trying several other brands/choices, they finally decided they liked the taste of the K/D from Hills.

This food has saved by dog's life
My maltese, Mystery was diagnosed with Renal problems before she was one year old. With proper medication and K/D as part of her feeding, she has managed to maintain healthy kidneys. She is now 9 years old and all her kidney check ups have been excellent. I also give her the Prescription dog treats (also for K/D eaters) and she enjoys them as well.
