Hill's Prescription Diet Kidney Care k/d Adult Dry Dog Food - Original
Hill's Prescription Diet Canine k/d is designed to help dogs with kidney disease get all the nourishment they need.
How it works
Hill's Prescription Diet Canine k/d has been shown to help kidney function and slow down the progress of kidney disease, giving your dog a happy life. The small amount of high-quality protein helps your dog to stay strong and healthy without putting any strain on the kidneys. It's low in sodium, too, so even less work for the kidneys. The recipe is packed with antioxidants. These fight free radicals – the molecules in your dog's system that can attack healthy cells and increase the speed of the disease.
This food is designed to replace your pet's regular meals for the rest of their life. Veterinary diets like this one have been specially made to support pets with specific medical conditions. Because of this, they might not be suitable for all pets, so we'd recommend getting professional advice before feeding them to your pet. If you think your dog could benefit from eating Hill's Prescription Diet Canine k/d, why not have a chat with your vet?

What it's for
The kidneys do a very important job in your dog's body. They take waste out of the bloodstream and manage fluid levels. As soon as you notice symptoms of kidney disease, such as thirstiness, peeing a lot, losing weight, really bad breath, being sick, runny diarrhoea, sore mouth, tiredness, a dull coat and depression, you need to take them straight to the vet. Even if they don't have kidney disease, these symptoms can be signs of other nasty problems. This is really important if your dog is seven years or older, as dogs of this age are more likely to develop problems with their kidneys.
Eating properly can help to slow down the disease. Your dog needs to eat less protein, phosphorus and salt. No more human food! Especially not doggy favourites like hard cheese, ham and peanut butter (these are really high in those minerals).

Hills Science diet renalPurchased for my elderly greyhound who has kidney disease. She eats it happily and her kidney disease is stable. Good value.
No complaintsWe were recommended a low protein diet for our dog who has Cushngs. He thoroughly enjoys this food, and shows no signs of finding this special diet any less palatable than regular food
Well acceptedI was expecting this prescription diet to be bland and poorly received by our dog, based on the warnings from our vet and previous experience of a different brand. However, this is quite savoury smelling, and we have had no problems getting Basil to eat it. Our other dog liked it enough to pinch some, and he is fairly picky too.
Superb food for kidney problemsMy elderly dog has kidney problems and this food keeps him really well, he has gone from severe thirst to normal drinking since being on this food.
Dogs with chronic kidney diseaseMy dog was recently diagnosed with ckd. This special diet food has really helped. He also likes the taste.
