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 Kidney Care 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 Kidney Care 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.

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

If it sits there long enough, and I don't offer him anything else, he will eventually eat it. But because he has kidney disease, I feel that this is the best and most nutritious thing for him.

Made a huge difference.

By Mitch

from Menan, ID 83434, USA

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

Gandolf is my brother's Pomeranian. We were doing blood testing to renew his blood pressure medication. He had also started drinking a lot and urinating a lot. His BUN was 99 Mg DL creatinine 3,4 mg/DL and phosphorus was 11.2 mg/dl. We put him on the KD diet for a month. It was the only change. A month later his BUN was 65 mg/dl Creatinine 3.4 mg/dl and His phosphorus is 6.76 mg/dl. He also has stopped drinking and urinating as much.

Manages my dogs condition

By Libby921

from Undisclosed

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

I am a firm believer that prescription diets work! If you can manage a pet's condition based on diet alone, why wouldn't you? My dog is in chronic kidney failure and he was diagnosed early and is strictly on k/d with no worsening of his kidneys so far. He has been on this diet for over a year and I couldn't be happier! k/d for the win!

This product is what my dog needs, but it's pricey.

By texasus

from Franklin, TN, USA

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

My vet (and my dog's tests confirm) that he needs to be on this prescription food. He likes the taste okay…although at times I do add a little chicken broth, especially on the rare occasion he's not too interested in the food. I do wish it was not so expensive (and I have a big dog)…would LOVE some coupons from time to time!
