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?

It's a great food to keep your cats' kidney levels low. You see results in only 1-3 weeks. Excellent food and highly recommend. Also, Petflow has the lowest price I've ever found!

Works and is yummy but too expensive
from Los Angeles, CA, United States
This food has brought my cat's kidney numbers down. He is doing great and loves this chicken flavor (and not the other flavors). The only drawback is the price. Too expensive.
My cat loves it!
My cat's Vet recommended I change her cat food to the k/d. She loves it and has also gained some weight which she needed. She used to bug me for cat treats all of the time, now she's not interested in any treats because the k/d keeps her happy.

Cat with Kidney problem
By No nickame
My vet recommended this food for my elderly cat with kidney issues. He loves it and comes looking for it every afternoon.
All my cats love this
from Fremont, CA, United States
My cat had a kidney problem and was prescribed this food to prevent further problems. Have been using for over 3 years, no more additional vet bills
but my cat won't eat it. In fact I've had two cats now that won't eat this or any other renal diet. Waste of money.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
