Product Details

Good old Molly has a sweet personality and she is wonderful company, but she has not been in a very good mood lately. Poor heart health affects your dog's quality of life as well as mood. The food your dog eats plays an important role in his or her overall health and well-being. Hills nutritionists and veterinarians have developed Prescription Diet g/d Canine Dry Food, Early Cardiac Healthy Aging.

Older dogs are at risk for many diseases and require food designed to help reduce nutrient excesses that may be harmful to their system. Reduced phosphorus helps minimize stress on aging kidneys; reduced sodium helps decrease fluid retention and maintain normal blood pressure; reduced protein helps decrease kidney workload; optimal fat levels reduce pancreatic workload; increased levels of omega-3 fatty acids support kidney health. Your pet's heart is the most important organ in the body, and factors such as age or weight may affect its function. Kidneys remove waste substances from the blood and maintain normal balance of fluid and minerals within the body. With Prescription Diet g/d Canine Dry Food, Early Cardiac Healthy Aging, Molly is in for a pick-me-up.

    Our vet recommended mixing this diet with the current prescription hypoallergenic food we feed our older german shepherd dog because he was having mild renal insufficiency following a thyroid operation. The lower phosphorus level helped his kidneys get back to normal function more quickly, and we are continuing to mix it in with his regular food. He likes it and as long as we keep the mixture at 50%, he tolerates it.

    Excellent diet for pets that have cardiac and liver disease. The food is well balanced and has good taste, making it easy to transition to the diet. However, it is very unfortunate that for long term use, only 8.5 lbs bags are available; wishing for the 35 lb bag to return to the market.

    This is a well formulated product for aging dogs

    By Sawtooth

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

    This was recommended by our regular vet as a maintenance diet for our 13 year old Yorkie. He has enjoyed good health over a full and active life (now made a little more active by his 2 year old companion!). He and I are both entering later life, which means attention to achieve a healthy diets in the face of diminished physical stamina and activity. Enjoyable nourishment without becoming overweight is our mutual goal.

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

    Our dog was originally put on this prescription diet food because she has pancreatitis but our vet says there are so many other health benefits she should live a long life! She is a rat terrier who is 12 years old - don't tell her she still thinks she's a young pup!

    Rusty always enjoys the food. He gobbles it up immediately.

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

    As long as Rusty is happy we are happy. He has never turned away for g/d and enjoys it. G/d has a lot of nourishment for an older dog. Rusty will be 11 this month and he still plays fetch every single day.

    Vet recommended but very expensive

    By MayaJ

    from Santa Barbara, CA

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

    My vet recommended this food and if it prolongs my dog's life then I am all for it. However, this food is only available in 8 pound bags and I use it for one of my fifty pound dogs. This is very expensive. My vet has suggested moving my other 2 dogs onto this food but without larger bags available, it's not financially possible. I see large bags of several Prescription Diet formulas at our vet, but for whatever reason, this one is not available. Why?!
