have used this for a couple years
Our mini schnauzer has had 2 surgeries due to bladder stones, have had him on this and seems to be doing very well. He also is a diabetic but seems to love to eat this food.

My dog loves it
Our dog has kidney failure and was placed on this diet. She had been on dry food all her life. She took up with the new food at once. She looks forward to her meals.

Great product, the dog enjoys the food.
Our dog has had problems with bladder stones in the past. But since we started giving him ud he has been healthy and no problems. This is a great product and would recomend it to anyone that has a dog with this problem of bladder stones and urinary tract problems.

Great canine product for special restricted diets due to bladder stones
It is invaluable that there is a prescription dog food for dogs with special needs diets. We can know and trust that we are feeding our dog the best there is in Hill's. Thank you for making a prescription diet food to help us meet the special needs of our pet!

It seems to be working.
Kat is on the UD because she had crystals in her urine. She is not crazy about the dry food so I bought the canned to mix in with the dry. The canned food is too dry to coat the dry food to her taste. It is also too dry to wrap around the antibiotic capsules that she is currently taking. Lucky for me she usually swallows the chucnk with the pill in it without tasting it. The canned UD is too pricey for me to give it to her exclusively. I would suggest that you consider putting a "pop-top" type of lid on it.

my dogs love this food
my dogs can't wait to get their w/d canned food...

My Bichons love the taste of the food, but don't like they get less as the Kcal is higher than other non-prescription varieties. The benefit is that our older mail bichon has trimmed down from 15.3lbs to around 13.6lbs at age 12+.
We are hoping the modified diet will slow the growth of the males bladder stones as we've had one surgery and now 2 basket retrievals in the last 4 years; we just switched since the last procedure about 4 months ago on recommendation from the U of M Vet Clinic....we're hopeful!

My dogs love the taste of this prescription food.
I had absolutely no problem switching my dogs to UD. They eat dry for meals and receive small can amounts for treats and to take medication with. They really feel like they are getting a treat. The only problem I have with the canned food is that it crumbles when you try to push the pills inside. I wish the consistency was a little better.

This product has done well for our dog...
Our dog has been on the u/d since his stones were removed and had NO recurrence of stones or raised levels in his urine!

My pup loves it!
When our vet prescribed this food I was afraid it would smell medicinal, or so unlike regular dog food that Reagan wasn't going to touch it. But he chomped right in.
The price is very reasonable considering the benefits and he has been doing fine since his first bite.

My bichon loves the taste
After 3 kidney stone surgeries, the vet put my bichon on the Hills Prescription Diet u/d. My dog absolutely loves the taste.

Seems to be maintaining his bladder stone issues and he loves the taste.
My nine year old dalmation had emergency surgery for bladder stones 6 months ago. My vet informed me that one of the best recommendations that he could make that may prevent future problems would be to feed him UD prescription can food. I want to give him every chance, so I agreed. He loves the tastes, his energy has increased and so far the bladder issues are being held at bay. Other than the product being a bit pricey,,, I can't say enough good things about this diet.

Canine UD keeps my Pugs stone free!!!
I can trust Hill's with the health of my pets. I have two pugs that were diagnosed with calcium oxalates in their urinary bladders.
They love the food and go crazy for it at meal time. Palatability was never an issue.
The food is very cost effective because it prevents the huge expense of surgery. And it saves my dogs from going under the knife again!
Included is a picture of the bladder stones from one of my pugs. I adopted him so he could have his surgery and not be euthanized!

My dog had bladder stones when she was 3 1/2 years old. After surgery she was put on Science Diet U/D. She has been stone-free for almost six years. I attribute it to this food and a vigilant watch over her.

My dog is doing well and loves the product.
Luckily my dalmation doesn't have a finicky appetite because he enjoys every bite. The product seems to be working for what ails him and that certainly is a great thing. As we all know, precaution can sometimes way lay bigger expenses down the line. ;-)

good product, a bit pricey.
My 10 year old yorkie has always been a finiky eater. REALLY need to have some kind of flavor variations! Not even thru the 1st case of canned food and he is bored with it. He does think the dry is a treat tho!

He likes it! Hey, doggie!
From the time they were puppies, my dogs, Regan & Taco, would eat anything once. Once being the operative word! I would bring them food, put it in their bowl and they would eat like they hadn't been fed in weeks. But the next day they would sniff it and look up as if to say, "Not this..... again."
I literally had 5 different types/brands of food for them, and I couldn't give them the same thing 2 days in a row.
My vet suggested Hill's prescription diet wet, so I gave it a shot. They love it! The sound of the can opener longer causes them to bark, instead it makes them run around in circles at my feet.

my mini schnauzer loves it
I have never had any problem getting him to eat. I intend on keeping him on this food.

It looks like lard, but does the trick. My dog has been on it over four years and has not had a recurrence of bladder stones. We use the dry UD for treats.

Great food but still gets stones, however it may be my fault
My dog had a bladder cystotomy 2 1/2 years ago and had been on U/D ever since. I will admit I have been giving him non-prescription treats. This past week two more stones were found and removed on Friday. U/D may not be enough. The vet said we may need to add additional potassium citrate supplements in order to keep his Ph at 7. His urine will have a full UA in 14 days when the stitches come out and then again every 3 months for Ph and crystals. an x-ray will be taken every 6 months to be sure no stones are forming. I am hoping that this tie, without the treats, the U/D will be enough.
