Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food that our dog loves My 2 year old Standard Poodle has been on an exclusive diet of k/d canned food for over 4 months now. He runs to his bowl and scarfs his food down as soon as I put it down. He weighs between 58 and 59 pounds and gets 1 1/2 cans twice per day. He is now healthy and happy and full of juice as a Standard Poodle should be. It took a while to identify his problem but once on the k/d diet he has been like a new dog! Note: He is one of only three surviving siblings out of a litter of nine. The deceased siblings died due to renal failure before their first birthdays. We feel very lucky that our precious Linus survived and we look forward to many wonderful years with him.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Vet and I are pleased with my dog's response to this food. My Vet and I are please with my dog's response to the k/d wet dog food. I was a little skeptical about trying a prescription dog food, but Squirty needed to get his kidney levels back in balance. He is a VERY picky eater, and I was plesantly surprised that he zealously ate the food. We've been on this diet for almost a year, and he is holding his weight, his BUM levels are much better, and his stools are consistent. I was concerned about all the "naturalists" comments (high fat content, junk food, etc.) about prescription diets, and for me, they were unfounded. I would heartily recommend this food.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nutritionally sound, could be more palatable I am a huge fan of Science Diet products, as they are nutritionally sound and my animals thrive on them. My issue with the k/d is palatability. The consistency and taste do not appeal to any of our animals (including the healthy dog and cats who will eat almost anything), so it's not surprising our geriatric who needs it due to renal issues has to be coerced into eating it. Please consider redesigning the formula and/or or processing method to produce a more palatable product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps keep my pet's blood analysis numbers in check! My 15 year old mini-dachshund had very high numbers in his blood analysis tests taken during his annual checkup - as in off-the-charts. We found out that he a few bad teeth that were putting toxins into his system, but once they were removed, it took his body a bit to get back on track. After 2 more blood tests with elevated numbers (along with anit-biotics), our vet put him on Hills K/D canned food. He loved the taste from day one, and now his numbers are almost perfect - in fact very good for a dog his age. It was such a relief to know that he is getting proper nutrition and his body is getting all the help it needs to stay health in his senior years. Thanks Hills! (and our vet, Dr. Bennett!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Picky Yorkie Loves It! I was skeptical about this food, having had a disastrous experience with Z/D a year ago (vomiting and projectile diarrhea). It's only been 4 days, but it's 4 days my 11yr old Yorkie hasn't vomited bile. She was on Reglan, Pepcid, and Sucralfate for several weeks, but it didn't help. A friend gave me a can of K/D to try, (I purchased several cans afterward) and I'm thrilled so far. My dog actually begs for it--a first. I mash it with a fork and add a little warm water. I was surprised to read that it's best stored in the original can, covering with a lid. I'm hoping she continues to like it and doesn't develop any side effects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my pets life My baby was in a life threatening stage when I started him on the Hill's renal prescription diet. The Vet was giving me the quality of life speech and said he wouldn't make it. After a week on the prescription diet, he was responding. After three weeks on the diet, his blood numbers were totally back to normal, much to the surprise of the Vet. He will remain on the prescription food for the rest of his life and well worth every penny. We do not need another appointment at the Vet until his regular six month appointment. This food literally saved my pet's life..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product works and my dog loves it! Hill's Prescription Diet k/d canned food has helped my foster dog, Jamie's, kidney functions return to near normal! Jamie has been eating canned k/d food for more than a year now and his kidney function levels have significantly reduced during this time. Even better...Jamie LOVES this food! He comes into the kitchen twice a day at his scheduled time "asking" for his food! I am very thankful for this product as it has given Jamie the opportunity to celebrate his 14th birthday next week. I hope to celebrate many more with this very special foster dog!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Prescription k/d Renal - one healthy dog - one happy dog mom! Good veterinary care and k/d food is helping me keep my dog as healthy as she can be. Since my vet isn't close by, I would like to be able to order it online. The only downside for me since I have a small dog is the 13 ounce cans ...she loves her k/d best when it's fresh, so I would like to be able to use a fresh can each day. I do know Hills offers other canned dog food products in smaller size cans, and I would love to see the k/d offered that way as well. I'm sure the many small/toy dog owners out there would appreciate a smaller can as well. I do appreciate how helpful your customer service is..always friendly..and always willing to do whatever they can for me.
