Hill's® Prescription Diet® s/d® Canine Dissolution
this product is tasty & great for finicky dogs.
My dog is finicky when it comes to her dog food,some she refuses to eat. But I was very surprised that she enjoys eating this prescription dog food on her own without any fuss.Many times I had to feed her by hand to get her to eat some other dog food brands which can be a messy affair.So having her eat her dog food on her own & looking forward to dinner time made my life a little easier

This product saved my dog from surgery
My miniature schnauzers are prone to bladder stones and have been on the C/D diet. One of my dog had stones last year and had surgery to remove them. That same dog got stones again this year. We put him on the S/D diet and my vet told me to be patient. It took about a month but now the stones are dissolved and he doesn't have to have surgery again! I am so thankful!
I wish it didn't cost so much, or there were more coupons available. Keeping 2 dogs on the prescription diet for life is quite expensive.

This product is great.
This product works well with my pet dog. She goes crazy when we are chopping it up for her. She tries to eat it off the plate before we get it into her bowl.

Hoping this works to disolve bladder stones
The dog whom this is prescribed for, doesn't care for it, at all. I'm hoping it does the job and disolves her stones. On the other hand, I have another dog who doesn't need this food, and she loves it! I have to referee at mealtimes!! Only 1 more week to go to see if it did the trick.

My dog likes it
I like the fact that my dog likes his prescription food. I feel that it is a bit expensive - but the fact that you have given out that great coupon of $7.00(!) it has really helped me in keeping the price down in this round of treatment. I really don't care for the smell, but since my dog likes it and it seems to be helping him, I don't want to have another surgery.

How to get your dog to eat S/D - positive results so far.
My 12 year old maltese was recently diagnosed with bladder stones. I've had him on s/d for a month and return for another round of xrays in 30 days so I cant vouch for the reduction in stones BUT i can say this much: he no longer has blood in his urine and his urine stream is clearer and stronger. He also seems less lethargic. This is how I got him to eat the s/d food when he initially refused to: chop it into large chunks and place in a small food processor, sprinkle some chicken broth and blend for a few seconds. Viola! he loves it and eats it right up. I'm hopeful we'll see a reduction in the stones on the xray because i dont want to put him through surgery at his age. Keep us in your prayers! :)

This product has helped my dog
We have been using this product for several months now to avoid a surgery we couldn't afford. We have definitely seen improvements in his condition from using this food. My only complaint is that it is very hard to get him to eat this food and it's a little pricey, however, your coupons have really helped out! Overall, we are very satisfied with the product and thank you for saving our baby!

My dog was saved from a 3rd struvite bladder stone surgery.
My Shihtzu is 6 years old and has undergone two emergency surgeries for struvite bladder stones. I changed vets, and the new vet placed my dog on the s/d diet for 2 1/2 months as she had bladder stones and an urinary tract infection which required several rounds of antibiotics. The stones dissolved in the time she was eating this diet. If they come back, she will eat it again to dissolve the stones, but is currently is on the c/d diet and three month checkups for urine analysis. This s/d diet saved my dog from another surgery and painful recooperation. Thank you Science Diet S/D and C/D dog foods.

Saved from surgery
Using this product has dissolved both my dogs' bladder stones and prevented us from having to go through another surgery! My dogs love it!

This is a good product.
This is a good product. My only complaint is that the consistency of the food varies by can/case. When it is flakey and very, very moist my dog doesn't eat it as well.

Eliminated bladder crystals
Our female English Bulldog had 3 very large bladder crystals that caused a UTI and frequent urination. Our Vet put her on s/d and antibiotics. After a few months, I was amazed that the last X-ray revealed just a tiny piece left. I was certain that surgery would be required to remove the crystals. I am a very relieved dog owner with a very relieved dog.

Overall the product is great
Product is a little pricey for a dog to be on very long. much better than surgery though. My beagle loves the food. Never have problems getting her to eat it. Has worked well on her bladder stones. Would recommend owners to use if their dog has bladder stones.

Wonderful alternative to surgery!
I have a 6 year old dachshund mix that was having obvious urinary issues. I took her to the vet and through ultrasound, discovered that her bladder was full of stones (most likely struvite crystals, per her previous history). There were 2 options for treatment- either have surgery to remove them or try the Hill's prescription diet s/d. I took her back in for a re-check 30 days later and she only had 6 stones left. I am confident that her next ultrasound will show that all of the stones have been dissolved! A much cheaper and safer alternative to surgery!!!

Has worked well for my dog
The only problem I have ran into is, I have had to return a few cans cause there was a lot of water and the food wasn't the same

Great food, awesome results.
My poor little pug Martini was just recently diagnosed with a urolith. We started her right away on S/D and within 2 weeks it had dissolved. I was skeptical at first, but after seeing the results with my own two eyes. I couldn't believe it. I am so happy the food worked and now I don't have to put her through surgery. Now we have transitioned her to C/D and she loves it. I would definitely recommend this food to anyone.

This product helped cure my baby.
I know that's a major claim to make, but all I know is Sydney, my miniture Schnauzer was sick and having problems with constant urination. I had always fed her like alot of people do, the cheapest dog food and supplement that with table scraps and big bags of dog treats. The Vet diagnosed Gall Stones which I would never have believed until he showed me the x-ray! Cortizone injections and Hill's Prescription Diet S/D was the treatment. I went home opened up the first can thinking the whole time, as picky an eater as Sydney will never eat this food. Well to my amazement she loved it and wanted more. A month later Sydney is back to normal but I have continued feeding her Hill's Prescription Diet S/D. I will never again repeat the mistake of feeding her bargain dog food and dog treats. I will soon take her off Hill's Prescription S/D, but I will continue to feed her Hill's brand. I am sold on the quality of your food and Sydney loves the taste. So, I still stand by my original statement, "This product helped cure my baby."

Our golden doodle (95 pounds) has had two bouts with bladder stones. In each case, we have used Hill's S/D and it has done the trick avoiding expensive surgery. To me, the cost of the S/D was worth it as Nora is one special dog.

My dog doesn't like the taste and I have a difficult time getting her to eat it. She is 13 and had bladder stones removed when she was young. She has been on SD for 3 months during that time she's on Amoxicillin twice a day until the stones desolve. She's had 3 or 4 Xrays and the stone seem to be getting smaller. She also has them in her kidney. She's spoiled and loves to snack. Maybe because of cutting the snacks she is losing weight and is very thin. Also Vet bills are expensive. I am discouraged at how long it is taking for results.

My dog would not eat the product had to turn unused case to vet. she had to put on another product that she is eating. This
product looks and smells like can dog food.

Actual results are yet to the determined.
We had 2-different vet offices advise us to us the s/d can food for our 11-year old Shih Tzu female dog. She has some small stones in her bladder. We have only fed this diet for 6-days now and have another 24-days to go prior to really knowing how her health will be. Hopefully the stones will be dissolved and passed with us not having to go through a full blow surgery procedure to remain them. That the best we can do right now with our summary/review/comments. Thanks.

Our vet prescibed this dog food. Our dog has bladder stones. I am having a very difficult time getting her to eat this product. she has not ate on her own in 3 days. If I put it in her mouth she spits it out. Our vet said when she gets hungry enough she will eat it.??? Texture is like play doh.

It sure works!!!
It was a bit of a problem getting our dog to eat it, but it worked miracles! It's not even a month since she started eating it and she's doing so much better!

She loves the taste.
This product was recommended by our veterinarian for bladder and urinary track issues. The problems have since stopped, and have not returned. "Highly Recommended"
