Hill's® Prescription Diet®
g/d® Canine

For the nutritional support of senior dogs.
The food your dog eats plays an important role in his or her overall health and well-being. As dogs age, they require different levels of nutrients to reduce excesses that could be harmful to their system. Factors such as age or weight may affect heart function leading to lifestyle and mood changes. Kidneys remove waste substances from the blood and maintain the normal balance of fluid and minerals within the body. Once kidney damage occurs, the consequences are usually irreversible.

Hill's nutritionists and veterinarians developed nutrition to support your older dog's kidneys and heart for overall health. Hill's® Prescription Diet® g/d® Canine is a complete and balanced food that provides all the nutrition dogs need.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our 16 year old senior gives this 4 paws We have a 16 year old senior beagle who will be turning 17 this January. She is still going strong at this age. we are glad there is a dog food on the market to help her maintain her health. June 29, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by This is a well formulated product for aging dogs This was recommended by our regular vet as a maintenance diet for our 13 year old Yorkie. He has enjoyed good health over a full and active life (now made a little more active by his 2 year old companion!). He and I are both entering later life, which means attention to achieve a healthy diets in the face of diminished physical stamina and activity. Enjoyable nourishment without becoming overweight is our mutual goal. October 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by g/d food excellent product wish it wasn't so costly. Your coupons help a lot with the cost and are greatly appreciated December 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Vet recommended but very expensive My vet recommended this food and if it prolongs my dog's life then I am all for it. However, this food is only available in 8 pound bags and I use it for one of my fifty pound dogs. This is very expensive. My vet has suggested moving my other 2 dogs onto this food but without larger bags available, it's not financially possible. I see large bags of several Prescription Diet formulas at our vet, but for whatever reason, this one is not available. Why?! July 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Keeps our dog healthy! Our dog was originally put on this prescription diet food because she has pancreatitis but our vet says there are so many other health benefits she should live a long life! She is a rat terrier who is 12 years old - don't tell her she still thinks she's a young pup! September 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rusty always enjoys the food. He gobbles it up immediately. As long as Rusty is happy we are happy. He has never turned away for g/d and enjoys it. G/d has a lot of nourishment for an older dog. Rusty will be 11 this month and he still plays fetch every single day. September 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent products Prescription g/d cardiac diet has been the only dry and wet dog food I have used for the past three years and has maintained a good health for my Schnauzer. She had experienced acute medical problems requiring hospitalizations on two occasions but after initiating Rx Diet, she has been doing very well for a 13-year-old dog. Realize it is an expense to feed, but certainly has lived up to its quality. September 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by g/d has helped keep our little dog healthy for many years! Our little Poodle / Shih Tzu / Bichon mix had some issues - we started her on g/d and she is now 15 - still going strong - she has had very good health since we made the switch to g/d. Thank You!! My only complaint would be that you stopped making the 40 lb bag, so now we buy 3 - 8.5 lb bags at a time - hoping you will go back to larger bags available. October 7, 2013
