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.

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!

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.

GREAT ADDITION TO FEEDING
This is a great addition to the dry prescription K/D we feed our Choc Lab, Mindy. I always have canned food on hand to aid in giving our 2 dogs their meds. I usually buy the brand that I have coupons for, as this is not their main food.
This was a nice option to add to the dry prescription food, and I truly believe Mindy enjoyed it greatly!

Best prescription diet to slow the progression of canine kidney disease
When my 18 year old bichon frise Buffy was diagnosed with late stages of renal failure, people all over the world told me Hills K/D was all she should be fed to keep her with us longer. This was also the food recommended by her veterinarian. She was given several more months of precious, quality life by feeding her only this diet.
Recently her almost 15 year daughter Tiffany has been diagnosed with kidney disease. Her stage has progressed from very early to stage 2 - 3 in 3 months on a diet that is not Hills and geared more towards very early stages. I am confident however that her switch to Hills K/D three weeks ago will keep her kidney disease from progressing further at a fast rate. Great to have a product that helps canines enjoy a longer quality life when they are lucky enough to be diagnosed in the earlier stages of kidney disease. Our current veterinarian has canine clients that were put on Hills K/D at the same stage as Tiffany or even slightly more advanced. Two years later their stages have not advanced.

Has helped my 17 yr old dog tremendously
The Vet told us to give it a try because my dogs Kidney number was 87, which is near total failure. He said if my dog didn't like it, we could return it. Dog thought it was a real TREAT in beginning, because he's never had canned food. Still eating it fairly well after a couple months. The food along w/daily antibiotic & bi- weekly fluid therapy has brought the kidney number down to 27!!! Totally normal.
Can't thank you enough.

Prescription k/d Renal - one healthy dog - one happy dog mom!
Good veterinary care and k/d food is helping me keep my dog as healthy as she can be.
Since my vet isn't close by, I would like to be able to order it online. The only downside for me since I have a small dog is the 13 ounce cans ...she loves her k/d best when it's fresh, so I would like to be able to use a fresh can each day.
I do know Hills offers other canned dog food products in smaller size cans, and I would love to see the k/d offered that way as well.
I'm sure the many small/toy dog owners out there would appreciate a smaller can as well.
I do appreciate how helpful your customer service is..always friendly..and always willing to do whatever they can for me.

This product is so easy to use!
Our little girl really seems to enjoy the original. I've tried the lamb and she won't eat it. So, if you have a finicky eater, try to introduce the original & lamb together.
