Hill's® Prescription Diet®
k/d® Canine Renal Health


Kidney Health

Kidneys are very important because they 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.

Because the right nutrition can positively impact your pet's quality of life, Hill's nutritionists and veterinarians developed Prescription Diet® k/d®, clinical nutrition especially formulated to support your dog's kidney health. In fact, k/d is clinically proven to improve quality of life in dogs.

Feeding Guide

Daily Feeding Guide:

Important Feeding Information

  • These amounts are a starting point only. Your dog may need less or more food to maintain proper weight. Adjust as needed. If you are unsure, ask your veterinarian.
  • With your veterinarian's approval, mix increasing amounts of your dog's new food with decreasing amounts of the old food over a 7-day period.
  • Prescription Diet formulas are available in a wide variety of dry foods and treats for your dog's unique needs, and canned foods with delicious flavors your dog will love. Supplementation with other foods or treats is unnecessary and may decrease the effectiveness of the food. When using with canned food and treats, decrease the amount of dry food to avoid overfeeding.
  • Keep fresh water available at all times!
  • For best results, have your veterinarian monitor your dog's condition.
  • To prevent suffocation, keep this plastic bag out of the reach of pets and children.

A wonderful product. The secret to a healthy pet. Two male dogs Bichon 16 and Yorkie17. KD is the secret to their longevity. They are two wonderful aged puppies. December 7, 2013
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. November 24, 2013
THE BEST! 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! October 15, 2013
My pom is back to her old frisky self thanks to Hills Prescription K/D. My pomeranian was having accidents inside the house which was very unlike her, and becoming very lethargic. After testing, our vet put her on Hills Prescription K/D. Not only did she like the taste of it better than what we had been feeding her, but she's like a new little doggie. Back to her frisky ole self! Thanks Hills. April 14, 2014
Thumbs up ! My Shih Tzu has issues from early on with her bladder. She doesn't drink a lot so we've had problems with potential crystals forming. She was on Hills GD formula wed & dry, along with potassium tablems to keep her feeling well. I can certainly tell when she is not herself. A few months ago, my vet introduced her to the K/D formula -- dry only. We have eliminated the wet and the potassium tabs and she seems to be feeling "puppy like" days. We are very happy with the results thus far. Thanks !! March 31, 2014
Love this dog food My dog was having high pancreas levels and got on the w/d kept his levels perfect! now he is going through kidney problems because of his age (13 year old poodle) and he enjoys the k/d licks the bowl clean! thank you for providing great products and customer service March 25, 2014
