When cats have damage to kidney tissues, the kidneys cannot perform as well as before, like filtering and reabsorbing nutrients. The condition is not reversible, but progression may be slowed, and taking action early can be beneficial. Therapeutic foods for kidney conditions are designed to help reduce workload on the kidneys, enabling them to function more effectively. Cats with decreased kidney function may experience loss of appetite and their food intake might decline.

Hill's nutritionists and veterinarians developed Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Early Support clinical nutrition for early protection of a cat's vital kidney function and to encourage eating for strength and energy. This dry food is made with chicken and has an irresistible taste that your cat will love.

Act early with the nutrition of Prescription Diet k/d Early Support to improve quality of life and lengthen the relationship with your cat.

How it helps:

  • Early support of vital kidney function
