k/d Feline Kidney Care with Chicken Canned Cat Food
|Available Options||MSRP||Your Price|
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.

in my cat's renal health. Two years ago 14 y.o. "Mr. Kitty" was diagnosed with kidney disease and placed on Hill's prescription food. At the time of his diagnosis he was losing weight and vomiting every few days. Since switching his food he has maintained his weight and rarely vomits. He is a very happy cat! We were told at the time of his diagnosis that, given the stage of his kidney disease, he could have anywhere from weeks to two years. It is now two years, he is 16 y.o., and doing extremely well. We are so happy to have found this rx. food. I was a little too anxious to switch to the Hill's and did not integrate it slowly enough. Because of that he did have a few rough days. If I were to do it over again, I would integrate the new food into the old very slowly, increasing the Hill's in small increments on a daily basis. We've also learned that he does much better w/just the wet #canned# food. As a kitten, our vet told us dry food was the better option so we pushed that and only gave him a small amount of wet food per day. With the transition to Hill's, we've found that he has much less digestive issues w/the canned food and have eliminated the dry.

Why doesn't this come in additional flavors or textures? My 16-year old Maine Coon does like variety...and frequently turns her nose up when she gets served the same thing over and over again. Unfortunately she must be on the prescription diet because of her age and frail kidneys. Come on, people, would YOU want to eat the same thing day in and day out?

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Feline Kidney Care with Chicken Canned Cat Food:
My cat also LOVES the ocean fish in this k/d category. I (and my cat) would really appreciate it if you'd start carrying that also!!
- Please tell us your pet's breed:
My 16 yr old Himalayn's kidneys have started to fail and I honestly thought when I took him to the vet... I may not bring him home. She suggested putting him on the HPD K/D stew... and it's SHOCKING how much better he is!!! It's like he got a new lease on life... I can hardly believe the difference. You would never think their food could make that BIG a impact... AMAZING PRODUCT!!!
My cat was diagnosed with kidney problem since he was one year old. After taking k/d his urine problem no longer exists and has been staying healthy in past 3 years. As we are going to adopt an old cat (15 years old) soon, may I know whether an old cat which has no historical kidney problem can eat k/d food too? Or k/d can only be fed on cats with kidney issues?
I've had a number of pets over the years on many of Hill's Prescription diets. I've been a vet tech fof 14 years; I have full trust in the quality of Hill's products. Both my dogs and cats have never turned their noses up...very palatable. I firmly believe that Hills food has extended the lives of my pets over the years! Thank you!~
I didn't know the cans came in all these flavors. I think my vet only carries one flavor. My cat follows us around and begs to be fed this canned food. We give her some morning and night and she is always ready to eat. I really would like to have more coupons available, or a lower price for the product. I feel I am trapped into buying because of her health condition, and the price is definitely much higher than other foods.
This food has helped my 16 year old kitty maintain her kidney functions in her older age. She is very picky and likes the taste of this food. It is a little pricey, but the online coupons help with the cost.
My cat would not eat it. Had to change foods. Went Science Diet Mature cat food.,
My youngest cat (13 yrs old) needed help. My vet recommended the K/D chicken flavored cat food and must taste good because she is eating well. I have two older cats as well (16 and 18) and they love it too! I was spending more on other cat food that I believed was very healthy. Hill's offers an affordable price for pets in need of specific food.
I am so grateful that a product exists to help my poor little baby. He has had a hard life. I was his 4th foster mom (from the shelter) in a year - but I kept him, and have had him for over a year now. He is used to free food, and treats, and he knows to come and lick my face when he wants his wet food. Now he will be eating k/d exclusively. So far he is in an adjustment period, he seemed to like it at first, but now I think he wants his other wet food back! I have ordered 2 more cases, in different flavors (tuna and chicken) hoping to see if I can find something he prefers.
I rescued my 16 year old cat from the animal hospital that I work for, and I was nervous to take him home and get comfortable, fearing that he would never acclimate to another home. Feeding him the Hill's prescription k/d diet helped bond us closer together and make him feel more at home. Having him over 2 years now, we have never been closer and I owe it all to his food.
