Good for Renal Health
MyAmerican Pit Bull, Binx, has a kidney condition. I have always fed him Hill's Renal Health K/D since my vet. first recommended it as a desired diet to maintain his kidney health. He loves it, snarfs it down and, I feel, it has helped him maintain his good health and bright, cheerful and gentle personality.

3 years ago my Doberman was diagnosed with kidney failure and given a year & 1/2. We started feeding him k/d immediately. Now, 3 years later and he just celebrated his 14th birthday. He was just in for bloodwork at the vet and his kidney levels aren't great, but they haven't gotten worse!!! My vet & I both agree that Lucian (my Dober-boy) should be the posterchild for k/d canine dry. There is no doubt that this diet has allowed him to be with me longer and live a healthier life. Thank you Hills!

Appealing food despite being renal formulated
I was glad to have a dog food that was appealing to my aging cocker with medical issues. She is a picky eater, and the dry appeals to her and I use the wet to give her medications. I bake the canned for dog treats for her. A bit more work but it is giving her a much better quality of life at this time! Thank you!

product's great features
kibble is a good size for older dogs who might have problems with chewing larger pieces. appears to have good flavor for dogs. seems the feeding proportions are a little high. I was feeding the recommended amount but my dog seemed to be gaining weight so I had to cut back on the amount for each feeding. I don't know yet if the change to k/d has had any affect on the kidney function. I sure hope so because the product in very expensive.

Food is medicine
In about a month, the BUN numbers for my dog have greatly improved! Before starting the diet, her BUN number was 62. It is now 30! The only change made was switching to k/d Canine Renal Health. Thanks for a great product!

Much to my amazement my lab likes the kd.
I had been feeding my labs sweet potato and salmon chow with ground beef or chicken. My other lab is allergic to rice, corn, peas, and a number of other things in most dog chows. Thus the sweet potato and salmon diet for both. I suspect it is too much protein. My smaller lab seems to love the kd wet and dry.

Product is tasty
My dog loves the taste dry or mixed with liquid. She even eats the morsels as a treat.

Prescription Diet by Vet
My 14 year old Corgi was having issues, my vet indicated he has starting to have kidney failure and recommended Hills KD.
My boy will eat anything so that is not an issue. He seems to be putting on some weight and isn't having as many peeing accidents,
It is kinda expensive ~ so watch for sales and use those coupons! Not sure if it is going to help but only time will tell if it extends his life span and helps him with quality of life ~ its what we will do for our boy.

This food has made our dog feel so much better. Chance is 13 1/2 years old and his numbers have really improved and it's because of the food. It's expensive but our dogs are worth it. The cost really isn't to bad because it lasts a long time and our dogs are worth it. Mine like the dry and eat it very well.

This product has small bite size food
My oldest has been on Kd for close to 1 yr now. Sometimes he eats it right up and others times not so much. I'm really glad that the dry good is small bites since he's older it makes it easier for him to eat.

He almost always eats it
Buddy,a shetland sheepdog, celebrated his 12th birthday in 6/2014.Along with excellent vetrinary care and k/d wet and dry, his lab work has remained stable for over 2 years. His weight has also remained stable.

My dog gobbles up the k/d prescription diet.
I am grateful for the food as to decrease her intake of sodium, potassium and protein. It will extend her life

recommend by vet
my vet recommended this product for my dog to help with her getting too much protein because of her condition. I have used both the dry and canned foods. She seems to like both. She eats the dry off and on all day for her crunchy munchies!!!

Adding years back to his life
My vet has told me to put my dog on k/d to help with his kidney issues. He has very low stats and could begin kidney failure. This food has drastically helped to raise his levels and keep him healthy. Without, I may not have my Maestro anymore!

Pet will not eat this food
For the first two weeks our 9yo Weimaraner would eat the kibbles then over the next two weeks she stopped eating it except when she was extremely hungry. The hunger appears to have caused her to misbehave like she was 6 months old. Last night she ate an avocado ( her first avocado in her life) that would have required a step ladder to get at. Yesterday she ate the seat in my Volvo that she has ridden in for years. Tried the canned today and she ate that. It is 3 times as expensive as the dry which is twice as expensive as regular dog food. Will try supplementing the dry with chicken stock to see if that works.
On the positive side, after 2.5 months her kidney numbers are in the normal range which was the goal.

The product is great in quality, pet love the food, but the price is too high for people on a limited income.
The product is great in quality and my pet really liked it; but the cost is too expensive for people on a limited income. Purchase of this needed food is a burden on my budget and requires buying less food for me and my wife.

Good nutrition, poor taste
My dog's renal numbers have been steady on this diet for about 3 years. I have to add chicken both to help the taste.
August 25, 2014
In addition to medications, our veterinarian recommended k/d for our 14-year-old Sheltie with kidney problems. She loves the taste of the food, and her health is much improved. Thanks, Hill's!

She loves K/D!
Over 3 years ago our golden retriever, Josey, had to have the left lobe of her liver removed due to cancer. Since then, she's been on K/D, both dry and canned, and she enthusiastically endorses these fine products!

We believe Prescription KD is helping Rosie maintain good quality of life.
We put Rosie on kd dry and canned after she was diagnosed with liver and kidney problems. A year later, her levels, although still high, have come down significantly. I believe her change in diet has helped her.

Keeping our aging pet healthy
Wrigley has been part of the family for 12 years.
When he had a seizure and we realized his health was in danger we readily tried the KD prescription diet. I am glad to day they Wrigley has been healthy and seizure free! We couldn't be more pleased.

This product works
My dog was diagnosed with early stage kidney failure. Since switching to k/d I have noticed no crystallization in his urine and the urine does no longer has a strong oder. Wonderful product!

This product has brought my buddy back! <3
I just want to let you know how amazing this product is! My dog Rusty had renal failure from too much protein. He was lethargic and on deaths door. Luckily for this product he is alive and well and doing wonderful! He's only 8 years old, so I was not expecting anything like this to happen. It is a little expensive, so I depend on the coupons to help me out that are on your website, but I was wondering if you could take the limit off of the coupon??? That would be awesome!

Seems to work
My dog has been on the Prescription Diet - k/d for almost three months. He eats the food but he's not crazy about it plain - I pour a little gravy from the other dogs canned food (they get just a little canned to vary the taste of their dry foods) - since adding protein wouldn't work for a dog on k/d.
I haven't had him back to the vet to see how his health is doing - but he seems to be doing well. He's almost 14 - he's almost completely blind and nearly completely deaf - so I'm happy when he's doing well.

This product made the difference in our pet from being sick to healthy and happy.
Our pet loves life again, thanks to this food. He is so happy and has returned to playing again. It saved his life and he will have many more years with us.

doing what it is suppose to do.
When I first purchased k/d, it was because my 14 yr. old dog had only 20% of her kidney function left. That was 7 months ago. Today she still has 20% function, but the numbers are improving. She has lots of "Zip" in her "Do-Da". I look forward to the time we spend together. Not only does the dog like the k/d, I've caught my friend's healthy dog enjoying it and my 14 yr.old cat indulging as well. Ahhh, family members.
