Hill's Prescription Diet g/d Aging Care Canned Dog Food Product Reviews

The food your dog eats plays an important role in his or her overall health and well-being. As dogs age, they require different levels of nutrients to reduce excesses that could be harmful to their system. Factors such as age or weight may affect heart function leading to lifestyle and mood changes. Kidneys remove waste substances from the blood and maintain the normal balance of fluid and minerals within the body. Once kidney damage occurs, the consequences are usually irreversible.

Formula has changed!

My 11 year old Yorkshire Terrier was put on this food because he was beginning to show signs of diminished kidney function. At first he hated it. He doesn't like patรฉ style foods so it took us a while to convince him to eat it. He finally ate it one day and LOVED IT!! However, when we ran out a month ago we were greeted with the dreaded "SUPPLY CHAIN" hold up on food production. Some ingredients weren't available at the time but we were assured by Hill's that it was "working on it". Guess what? When it finally arrived, the formula is *completely * different. My dog HATES IT. It no longer smells meaty or stewy. It smells like corn, cornstarch, corn husks. It's gelatinous and gritty and pinkish grey in color. It dries to a crumbly consistency and dries out so quickly. And *please* Hill's, don't insult my intelligence and that of my dog. IT.IS.DIFFERENT. Now I have to work with my vet to find a new food that meets his nutritional needs as a diabetic dog with Cushing's. by on 11/24/2021
Messy!

Our get has placed our 15 year old dog on this food but she will not leave it on the bowl. She carries it out of her bowl and it gets all over the floor and is like glue. Very hard to clean up. If it was more like a stew then it would not leave the bowl. It is too dry by on 08/02/2016
Product formula has changed

The G/D canned is now a higher percentage of water than previously. More watery than preferred. Also with the new formula, when opening the can, large flecks of white fat are found, I've been trying to remove them as I want minimal fat in my dogs diet anyway. If that fat needs to be part of the formula, it needs to be better distributed throughout the product. by on 10/03/2015
Science Diet g/d canine canned food

We needed to find a way to get our 4 year old Maltipoo to take in more water. By feeding the canned food in the morning, we can add 1/3 cup of water, which she'll drink to get to the food! Although she's not an 'aging dog' she does have issues with crystallization and stones forming -she's had to have 2 surgeries already, which is too much for a 6 pound pup! The only thing I wish is that there were more consistency -each can seems to be different and the texture is 'weird'. Having never used wet food before, I guess I thought it would be more like what I've seen advertised on TV! BUT Murphy likes it, and bottom line, that's all that matters. I do feel that it's rather costly, but as long as I can find coupons to help offset the expense, I'll be OK with it! by on 09/10/2015
my dog loves this food

My dog is 15 yrs old and just had his gall bladder removed. His recovery was slow and he wouldn't eat. My vet recommended g/d and he started eating and is back to acting like he's 7 again. by on 09/30/2014
Awesome product, and he loves it too !!

Our 12 y/o Yorkie (Codi) has been on Prescription Diet G/D as prescribed by our Veterinarian for years. He absolutely loves his food, and I feel that it has helped keep him on track for a healthy life into his senior years. Our other Yorkie (Frisco), was on a Prescription Diet I/D, and I strongly feel that this did contribute to his long lifespan of 17 years. I do feel that the food is expensive, and does take a chunk out of our household budget, but what price do you put on the head of your family pet.....ours is priceless by on 06/20/2014

For My Schnauzer

This products is just the right amount of protein and low fat for a schnauzer. They don't need a high protein high fat diet like some other breeds. by on 04/19/2014

My dog needs to be on this diet for her health. Great food, a little pricey, but I guess this is what it is. by on 12/19/2013
Dog loved it. Didn't notice the benefits

My dog was started on GD due to bladder stones. The stones consistently returned despite being on this insanely expensive food. by on 09/26/2013
