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.

Keeping my old girl going!

By rvtbmckee

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

I have a 14 year old Shih Tzu that showed early signs of kidney insufficiency over a year ago. We started her on K/D and for the past 6 months, her kidney values have been in the normal range. She also has heart disease and pretty severe arthritis which we maintain with medications. She loves the new stewed K/D and cannot wait to eat her breakfast and dinner. She used to be a pretty picky eater, but not anymore. We are so happy to see how well K/D is working for her and keeping her healthy and happy. Thank you so much for making a diet that helps keep our fur babies healthy longer. We know they are only with us for a while, but with Hills diets we can extend that quality time to keep them with us longer.

Excellent quality food my pet loves and it improves his kidney values.

By Wolveshowln

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

My dog Presley has been on K/D for the past 3 months. He is 14 years old and his kidney values had been doing poorly. After being on K/D for 2 months, his values have improved dramatically. He is now 15 years old, and I had thought that I would lose him to kidney failure - but now I know his kidneys will be the least of his problems!

    first night both my dogs love the food, done great on both

    By dufous

    from London, ON, Canada

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

    we have 2 dogs, one 15 years old, this food was got for him, his kidneys were failing, since having 2 dogs put both on it, he is much better, they both have lost weight but nothing to worry about, since on this food there is such a big difference in them, first blood test came back at 155 second within a month was 129, highly recommend it, they aren't small dogs, they both are large dogs.
