Rated 5 out of 5 by Yes it does! Hip hip hooray! Hills Science Prescriptive Diet k/d has improved Igor's kidney levels in just 4 weeks. Looking forward to more improvement with continued use! :) October 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by worked great to help keep my senior dog going Has helped keep my senior dog going now for over 1 year. However her health continues to worsen. Thanks for giving us the time with my girl. April 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Keeps our baby healthy! Our 10 year old American Pit Bull Terrier, Nike, has been eating k/d exclusively for the past 7 years. We discovered some renal insufficiency on routine bloodwork and, at the recommendation of our vet, she has been eating k/d ever since. Her kidney values have increased very little in the past 7 years, which we attribute mostly to her excellent diet. She is happy, healthy, and has a beautiful coat. May 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. October 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Kidney values stabilized Upon finding that my min pin was in early stage renal failure, I started her on k/d. The diet, along with enalapril and fish oil, her numbers have stabilized. Losing a pet is traumatic enough, without it being to something you could have slowed or stopped altogether. Regular blood checks is the key and introducing a good diet and meds can be a lifesaver! August 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product may be saving my pet's life Hal's urine test indicated early kidney issues. At 9 years old, my Golden Retriever has been on K/D for over a year. His umbers stabilized and recently are getting better. Hal woofs down his food, so evidently he loves it. And most of all, I feel K/D is prolonging his life. He is beautiful and full of energy. Thank you to the people at Hill's. January 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has helped my pet The k/d prescription diet seems to be helping my pet's health, it is just very expensive. I have to wait for a coupon to buy it, so I can't keep him on it continually. I have to substitute another healthy food while I wait to print an additional coupon. It's a budget issue. May 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Taste My dog seems to love it now...hope it continues to enjoy it May 14, 2014
