Kidney Care

The kidneys filter waste and toxins from the blood and maintain the normal balance of fluid and minerals within the body.  As pets age, damage to kidney tissues may occur.  This process is irreversible and leads to loss of kidney function.  Dogs with decreased kidney function may experience loss of appetite and their food intake might decline, which may lead to loss of muscle mass.

Hill's nutritionists and veterinarians developed Prescription Diet® k/d® clinical nutrition to support your dog's kidney function and help sustain muscle mass.  In fact, the nutrition of k/d is clinically tested nutrition to improve & lengthen quality of life.

How it works:

  • Controlled phosphorus & low sodium
  • High level of essential amino acids - The building blocks of muscle protein
  • Therapeutic levels of L-Carnitine and Omega-3 fatty acids

How it helps:

  • Protects vital kidney & heart function
  • Boosts vitality & energy
  • Supports your dog's natural ability to build lean muscle daily
  • S+OXSHIELDTM: Formulated to promote a urinary environment that reduces the risk of developing struvite & calcium oxalate crystals

  • Reinforce with clients to feed Prescription Diet dry food, canned food, & treats exclusively.
  • Gradually transition to the new food over a 7 day period.
  • Avoid transitioning to the new food during periods of illness or hospitalization. A food aversion may develop, causing decreased acceptance of the food when the pet is feeling better.
