When dogs have damage to kidney tissues, the kidneys cannot perform as well as before. The condition is not reversible, but progression may be slowed. Dietetic foods for kidney conditions are designed to help reduce workload on the kidneys, enabling them to function more effectively. Dogs with decreased kidney function may experience loss of appetite and their food intake might decline.

Hill's nutritionists and veterinarians developed Hill's Prescription Diet k/d clinical nutrition to help protect your dog's vital kidney function and enhance appetite and increase food intake. This dry food is made with chicken and has an irresistible taste that your dog will love. In fact, Prescription Diet k/d is clinically proven nutrition to improve & lengthen quality of life.

How it works:

  • Controlled phosphorus & low sodium, enriched with omega-3s from fish oil
  • Enhanced Appetite Trigger (E.A.T.) Technology for dogs
  • High levels of essential amino acids and L-carnitine

How it helps:

  • Helps protect vital kidney function
  • Stimulates appetite & increases food intake
  • Supports natural ability to build and maintain muscle mass
