Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Kidney Care Dry Dog Food
Hill’s Prescription Diet k/d Canine Renal Health is a dog food specially formulated for the nutritional management of dogs with .
My Vet has prescribed Hill’s Prescription K/D for my dog who on the cusp of kidney disease. She wants the protein level around 13% or lower. My dogs had been on a LID for the last 4+ years with protein around 20-26% as one dog was allergic to everything under the sun. Sadly he passed away from prostate cancer the end of 2015. My other dog hates the Hills food. I have tried mixing in various cans of dog food, low sodium bouillon, warm water, pumpkin, etc. Any suggestions to make it more palatable without increasing her protein too much and without having to feed her a lot of by products and too much grains? Or a raw food diet in low protein? Thanks!
My vet prescribed Hill’s Prescription K/D for my dog for early stage kidney disease. He had 3 different episodes of allergic reactions, ears swelling, itchy face. He then developed pancreatitis. I took him off that food, researched and went to a home cooked method of feeding. He recovered and lived another 14 months (13.5 years total). My Vet refused to believe that Hill’s Prescription K/D had anything to do with his illness. Please don’t feed your dogs that junk if you can avoid it.

My 1-year-old puppy was a rescue. Shortly after adopting him, he went into acute kidney failure. So prescription Hills KD was recommended after he recovered. He was on that food for 2 1/2 years until recently. The 3 reasons why this dog food is a ripoff: 1. It now costs $90.00 for a 27 pound bag which is ridiculous as it has been around for years and years. 2. I cannot afford it on what I make. 3. My dog has now got a never ending rash and no hair left on his tummy. I strongly expressed my discomfort in switching to the Hill's brand since I had two of my other dogs (crossed over now) on R/D and K/D... Waiting to pay for the R/D one Day a couple of years ago just happen to look at the ingredients and was totally in disbelief that "corn" was the first ingredient!!!! Are you kidding me!!?? Like so many reviews... I too trusted my vet and didn't even think to look at the ingredients since it was a "prescription" food as well. After all wouldn't a "prescription" food offer the "best" of ingredients??? NOT!!!! I immediately took my dog off of the R/D. Feeling so desperate to get this excess weight off of Lou... was gonna suck it up for a couple of months. And SO glad I thought to take a look at reviews. Have a guardian angel looking out for our "loves" through these reviews. And to know these are all so true... as we all would not be spending time writing our experiences. Rather wanting to share and help others.
