Hill's® Prescription Diet® k/d® Early Support Feline Chicken, Vegetable & Rice Stew

1 out of 3 cats may develop kidney disease in their lifetime. This disease can be difficult to spot in cats, as signs may not be clearly visible until 75% of kidney function is lost. However, a new test can now detect kidney disease months and even years earlier, when as little as 25% of kidney function is lost.

Kidney disease is more common at advanced age, but with early detection & intervention, kidney disease can be stabilized. If your cat's age is advanced - ask your veterinarian about the SDMA test, for early detection of kidney disease.  Feeding the right nutrition early in the disease can help transform the lives of cats with early kidney disease.  

NEW PRESCRIPTION DIET™ k/d™ Early Support is a food specifically designed to meet the needs of cats with early kidney disease.  The nutrition of k/d™ Early Support has been clinically shown to sustain kidney function and healthy body condition in cats with early kidney disease.

  • How to adjust feeding amounts to maintain optimal weight.

    Adjust feeding amounts as necessary to maintain optimal weight. If you are unsure, ask your veterinarian.

    For best results & safety practices:

    • Cover and refrigerate unused portion.
    • Gradually transition to your cat's new food over 7 day period.
    • Sticking with the food your veterinarian recommends is critical to successful treatment. Do not feed other foods as they may contain high levels of phosphorus which can cause further damage to the kidneys.
    • Make sure fresh water is always available and feed more wet food if possible (hydration is important for cats with kidney disease).
    • Bring your pet in for regular checkups.
