Hill's® Prescription Diet® u/d® Canine Non-Struvite Urinary Tract Health
u/d is the right size and taste seems apparent by my dog
The u/d prescription dog food provides my 11 year old wire fox terrier with the nutrition and taste he likes. It also seems to aid in his control of reducing bladder stone recurrence. Overall the quality is excellent and my dog looks forward to meal time.

We have had two Dalmations, one lived to 13 and the other currently is 10. Both males.
We have fed both of them the UD product their whole lives. They seem to like it and I believe it has prevented costly vet bills to deal with stones and other problems associated with this breed.
Cost is a little high but worth it in the long run.

Fairly new user
My adult male dalmation recently developed bladder stones to the point of needing emergency surgery. He did quite well, recovery was quick and he's doing great. This was something new for me, even though I've been a dog owner for many years. My vet recommeneded that my dog's best chance of his bladder stones not returning was to feed him UD Rx diet. I quite willingly want to do the very best I can for him and feed him what is rec. He loves the product, always licks the bowl. I would strongly recommend this product to anyone in need of a special diet for their beloved cannine. ;-)

This is the only product I know of for this condition
My dog seems to really like it. He usually gets canned food in the morning and dry food in the afternoon. He gets fed twice per day. He is drinking mostly bottled water. He is urinating quite a bit. I feel better about his condition being better under control when he eats this food. Plus he seems to enjoy it.

u/d for our Chihuahuas
We have 2 male Chihuahua's, one 4 years and the other 1+. The older dog had bladder stones, had them surgically removed and our vet recommended Hills u/d as a preventative for future recurrence. For our dogs, the size of the u/d product is too large. Our dogs take one piece from their bowl, start chewing and what ever falls to the floor may or may not get eaten. So there's a fair amount of cleanup for us, hence the "good" versus "excellent" rating. I'd suggest that Hills consider also making this product in a small breed size. Otherwise, for a prescription product, the dogs love the taste and hopefully it will help in preventing more bladder stone events.

U/d Hills Prescription Diet for our husky after bladder stone surgery
This is the only dry dog food that I can feed my husky Timber without making a special raw type dog food. It helps for me to know this food is specifically made for dogs with his condition and not having to guess what crazy combinations of raw foods will keep the bladder stones from coming back. My only complaint is that this gets very expensive to feed my 75 LB male husky, 2 1/4 cups a day and buying the 27.5 Lb bag every 3-4 months. His blood work keeps coming back negative so this food does work.

So far this product seems to be helping my pup right along, along with other products and vet advice.
My pup likes this brand and we also give him pieces as treats. Just wish it was a little more affordable, on top of Vet bills and making sure he doesn't produce more stones, the expenses are hard on a pet owner to keep a happy healthy pup.

PLEASE, PLEASE make pieces smaller - like w/d with chicken
I have a small dog with only a few teeth. He has been eating the w/d with chicken small bites for years with no problem. He recently developed bladder stones, so we had to switch to u/d. He loves the canned food, but I like to use the dry food - which he also loves - for treats and some variation. Because the chunks are so much larger than the w/d, I have to sit and cut each piece of the u/d in half - a tedious task. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make the bites smaller - the size of w/d with chicken is fine......

Works as advertised
We have been feeding our dog this diet since fall 2013. So far he has not had a recurrence of his bladder stones. He loves the taste.

My Schnauzer Loves it !!
My baby had kidney surgery and he is a very picky eater. So when they said he had to use a prescription food i thought i was in big trouble, but guess what he loves it and begs for more. I also purchase it sometimes in the can make small slices and bake for treats....I am happy and my pet is happy !!

Recommended by veterinarian for kidney problems with my miniature Schnauzer
It has been several years since my dog had surgery for kidney stones which had shredded his bladder. Since the surgery I have used U/D Prescription Dog Food exclusively for him. My vet has even remarked that he was surprised that we have not had more problems - I credit the U/D Prescription Dog Food.
HOWEVER, it is terribly expensive - I can see where some dog owners would not use it just because of the cost. Some could not afford it.

U/D prescription dry dog food
I feed my dog U/D dry dog food because she is passing calcium oxilates in her urine. She has been eating it for a couple monthsnow and it seems to be working great. She loves the dry food and I use the wet food to make baked treats for her. The quality of the food is high and I would recommend this brand to anyone.

My Dog really this food.
It agrees with Zoie's system. Helps her urinary tract. No more going outside durning the night. Ya! Most of all Zoie is not in pain. :)

My dog loves the taste and it saves his life
Hill's U/D definitely helps with the prevention of bladder stones with my 14 year German Shepard

The food is pricey but keeps my best friend healthy
10 years ago my doggie became very ill urinating a bloody discharge and became very lathargic. We had to rush to Veterinary hospital since his life was on the line. We since have used priscription dog food for him to be okay and no complications.

My dog like its better than the UD canned food
I wish they made it in smaller bites as my dog is small and has an underbite. He sometimes has trouble biting and chewing the food as the chunks are a little large.

This product works great for my dog.
My dog has not had bladder stones since being on this product. I would highly recommend this food if your dog is having problems with stones.

This food does the trick.
My dog eats it and doesn't have the allergic reaction he did to the other prescription diet food I tried. The other was a corn base and this one has more rice.

Too high of price
My dog have over 30 stones. After spending over $1000 in surgery he now has to be on a special diet. He is prescribed science diet u/d for the rest of his life. He is only 2 years old and a 70 lb dalmatian. Too high of a price for people to feed only this dog food. Looking forward discounts in the future!!

The only food for My Tyson
I have a lab and pit mix, he is three and has had three surgery's for stone already. Science diet U/D dry and can has made a big difference, along with a drug called Thiola. the cost is not cheap between the three, we spend about two hundred a month for food and meds, on this dog only. but we have already put about two grand into him just in vet bills.
science diet is great food but very expensive, we could use some help in that department!

This product is great
I have a 11yr old Yorkie who had to have surgery to remove bladder stones. After this life saving surgery my Vet put my dog on the U/D formula of dog food with strict instructions that he was to only eat this. Well, my concern being that my dog is very picky about his food and at times would just refuse it; I was very concerned that he would not eat this dog food. I purchased the dry and wet food from my Vet and to my surprise my dog LOVES this food !!! He has had more urine tests and still no stones. Also, since he cannot have "store bought dog treats" I use the wet food as his treat and with its texture it works great.
Thank you for such a wonderful product..
