Kidneys are important because they remove waste substances from the blood, and maintain the normal balance of fluid and minerals within the body. Once kidney damage occurs, the consequences are usually irreversible. Hills nutritionists and veterinarians developed Prescription Diet® k/d®®, clinical nutrition especially formulated to support your cat's kidney health. In fact, k/d® is clinically tested nutrition to improve & lengthen quality of life.

* Boosts vitality & energy
* Supports appetite & eating enjoyment
* Sustains healthy body condition

This food requires a veterinary prescription.
Hill's is updating their Prescription Diet® packaging and a portion of the name. With Prescription Diet® k/d®, the current descriptor is "Renal Health"; in 2015 it will be "Kidney Care".
Some pets may need help in switching to an updated pet food. Make the transition easy on your cat's digestive system. To transition, mix your pet's current Prescription Diet® k/d® dry with the new k/d® dry. Over 7-10 days, gradually decrease the amount of the current Prescription Diet® k/d® dry while increasing the amount of new k/d® dry. For some pets, the transition may take slightly longer. Please speak to your vet if you have any questions.

This food was prescribed for our 10 year old female cat. My vet gave us a sample pack to try and I'm glad he did because she wouldn't eat any of it. It smells aweful, so I can't really blame her. I know I would've been very upset if I had spent the money to purchase this very expensive food and she not touch it. It doesn't matter if it works well, it can't do anything if the cat won't eat it.

I really like the new velcro close top for these bags. It is much more efficient and you are certain the bag is sealed.

Another Fine Hill's Product

By 

from New Concord, OH

There are three areas I want to cover with this review. 1. Our 8 year old shelter tortie, Rayne, went to the vet for minor surgery. Apparently, something went wrong during the surgery and she came out of it with ARF, Acute Renal Failure, which given her particular circumstances would be fatal about 60% of the time. Fortunately after a few days of treatment, kidney function was restored. Rayne's only food now is Hill's prescription diet k/d. She has used it for about 18 months. Her regular vet checkups (different vet) show her kidney functioning to be fine. Luckily,Rayne loves k/d and certainly chows it down. There may be a reason she likes k/d...she had eaten exclusively prescription c/d for the few years prior. This leads to area number... 2. A few years earlier, Rayne had a couple episodes of running to her litter box every few minutes in obvious discomfort. Medication from her vet took care of the problem, but it returned a few months later. The vet said her urine showed to be exceptionally heavily crystalized, and she put Rayne on Hill's prescription c/d. The problem was cured practically overnight and never returned. We had some concern that Rayne having to use k/d rather than c/d would result in crystals again but such has not been the case. Apparently the prescription k/d takes care of both issues, at least in Rayne's case. And now for the third... 3. Obviously, we would be very pleased with Hill's solely based on how well our cat has done on the prescription foods. But wait! There is even more! Our vet gave us a discount coupon or two for the prescription food. And, well, as disorganized as I am, I misplaced them long enough for the expiration date to come and go. Figuring nothing ventured,nothing gained, I wrote to Hill's aobut my coupon tale of woe. The response I was given was both gracious and vey generous. Without question, the folks at Hill's will do whatever they can to keep pets healthy and pet parents happy. Thank you so much Hill's

          Need k/d treats!!

          By 

          from Philadelphia, PA, United States

          My 16 year old seems to like the food, but she begs constantly for her treats which the vet said she can't have anymore. I tried the snack triangles recipe posted here and it was terrible. Food is way too goopy to "cut" into any shape and was impossible to flip. Ended with half burned hot mush and my house stinks like hot cat food. Did anyone at Hills actually test this recipe?

              We bought Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Feline Kidney Care Chicken Formula Dry Cat Food because our vet recommended it for our cat's newly diagnosed kidney disease. The cat is a five-year old neutered male named "Snowball". His twin sister "Pinky" doesn't have the kidney problem. Recently, Snowball started drinking alot of water and urinating much more than normal. The new food helps him retain more moisture to help his kidneys. Both cat's are Norwegian Forest Cats and enjoy their new food. My only complaint is that the prescription food is more expensive than store bought food.

                  Our veterinarian recommended this product for our older cats (both are 15 years old). They actually enjoy meals now. Before, they would leave food behind with the old brand we were using. Glad to see they have a healthy appetite.

                    I started my 16 year old cat on K/D dry and then tried her with the canned. She did not really like the canned version until you came up with the stew versions. Now she cleans her bowl.

                    By 

                    from bradenton, fl

                    My veterinarian recommended and prescribed this food for two of our older cats, 14+ years old and I have to say, they liked it pretty well and that is saying a lot for some finicky old kitties! I feel better about feeding them food that is good for them.
