Hill’s Prescription Diet k/d Canine Renal Health is a dog food specially formulated for the nutritional management of dogs with .
In 1948 Mark L. Morris contacted Hill Packing company to produce Canine k/d, Hill Packing company became the license producer of Canine k/d. In 1968, the food line was made available through veterinarians and pet professionals as Hill's Science Diet. The line has continued to expand, and today includes more than 60 Prescription Diet brand pet foods (prescription foods for cats and dogs with specific , only available through a or pet pharmacy) and brand pet foods (sold through veterinarians and pet specialty stores). In 1968, Hill Packing company was sold to then in 1976 the merged with Riviana Foods. Today, Hill's pet food products are available in 86 countries around the world and company sales reached $1 billion in 1999.
Also consider adding a whole food B and C vitamin to the diet. These two vitamins are “water soluble” and because of the excessive urination can become depleted if not supplemented. I use Standard Process Cataplex B and C. I also give Audrey a whole food multi as a precaution. I use Standard Process Catalyn. Standard Process also makes a whole food supplement specifically for dogs with kidney disease. It’s called Canine Renal Support — I HIGHLY recommend using it. I also give liver support also by Standard Process — Canine Hepatic Support. The liver can become overstressed in a kd dog.

Our vet recommended Hill's K/D when our dog had early stage renal disease. He ate the food just fine as he was not a picky eater at all. In 3 months time he had 3 episodes of allergies, ears swelling, itchy face. Then he had a pancreatic attack, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. We immediately took him off this food and for the remainder of his life, another 1.5 years, we fed him a home cooked diet. The Vet would never acknowledge that Hill's Science Diet K/D had anything to do with his reaction. I hope this post helps someone, somewhere that is being advised to use this junk food. Please don't.MADE MY DOG SICK. If I could have given it no stars I would have. My 9 year old GSD was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease because of her recent blood work results (most likely due to the use of anti inflammatory meds), our vet recommended a low protein, low phosphorous diet. The only sign of kidney disease that we noticed was she was drinking more water. Otherwise no symptoms. I didn't want to change her food but felt I had no choice, had to do what is best for her, so I bought a bag of the Hills KD diet. Opened the bag and couldn't believe the strong odor, her current food that she had been eating for many years has no odor and she loves it. Vacuums her bowl. As bad as it smelled my dog still ate it when I gave her a little to try. So I started mixing 25% Hills to 75% her other food and within hours she vomited undigested food, happened again on day 2, and she was starting to lose her appetite which is very unusual for her.
