Product Details

I simply must find out why my pet seems so sluggish. So I go to the experts. Hills Prescription Diet k/d Canine Renal Health dog food is formulated by veterinarians and nutritionists to support your dogs 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. There are many causes for kidney, or renal, disease that result in a variety of uncomfortable and life threatening symptoms for your dog. The disease may develop either suddenly or gradually, and may a result from other diseases, changes in health, hereditary tendencies, and nutritional factors.

Prescription Diet k/d Canine Renal Health therapeutic food for dogs is clinically proven to extend and improve quality of life in dogs. It contains reduced phosphorus to help maintain healthy kidney function, as well as reduced levels of protein to help alleviate kidney workload. Reduced sodium helps maintain normal blood pressure. Blood flow to the kidneys is boosted by increased levels of omega-3 fatty acids, while increased levels of B-complex vitamins compensate for vitamin losses in the urine.
  • Poor kidney function
  • Loss of vitamins due to frequent urination
  • Kidney disease
  • Compromised quality of life as result of kidney disease

Since being diagnosed with kidney disease, my 12-year-old Lab had been eating Science Diet Mature Adult Large Breed food along with 3 capsules a day of Azodyl. The Azodyl was inconvenient and expensive, but more importantly, my Lab began to resist eating at all, knowing the Azodyl was hidden in his food. Any time he discovered that capsule hidden in a treat, he would spit it out, necessitating shoving it down his throat. I finally turned to Prescription Diet K/D and what a difference! Jake still gets prescription anti-inflammatory and pain pills in his food, but now he has no resistance to eating. While expensive, this food is definitely worth it because now I have a happy, healthy dog again.

It may be great stuff, but the #1 and #2 ingredients are brewer's rice, and pork fat. Other ingredients are inexpensive as well. Sure it may be "just the right mix" but the actual cost of the ingredients in a 35 lb bag amounts to a pittance compared to the cost. Surely they (Hills) have recouped their R&D costs by now, and ought to lower the price.

Appealing food despite being renal formulated

By Anonymous

from Wesley Chapel, FL, USA

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Canine Dry Food:

I was glad to have a dog food that was appealing to my aging cocker with medical issues. She is a picky eater, and the dry appeals to her and I use the wet to give her medications. I bake the canned for dog treats for her. A bit more work but it is giving her a much better quality of life at this time! Thank you!

product's great features

By Bmcnick

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Canine Dry Food:

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.

Food is medicine

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Canine Dry Food:

In about a month, the BUN numbers for my dog have greatly improved! Before starting the diet, her BUN number was 62. It is now 30! The only change made was switching to k/d Canine Renal Health. Thanks for a great product!

Much to my amazement my lab likes the kd.

By damama

from California

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Canine Dry Food:

I had been feeding my labs sweet potato and salmon chow with ground beef or chicken. My other lab is allergic to rice, corn, peas, and a number of other things in most dog chows. Thus the sweet potato and salmon diet for both. I suspect it is too much protein. My smaller lab seems to love the kd wet and dry.
