Bag is TOO small for medium/large breeds
Does this come in a larger bag other than 8.5 lbs? I had to order 3 bags for my large breed dog that will probably last 2 weeks. I would only recommend d this if it came in a larger bag. by on 08/08/2021
Good food but need smaller kibble options
My 2 senior dogs like the food but have a hard time eating it due to the kibble size. If this is for aging dogs then the kibble size should be smaller, or have an option. by on 06/29/2021
Not sure about this - kibbles too big
It strikes a perfect balance with what my dog needs vim but unfortunately the kibbles are too big. She's a 12 pound schnauzer and she's old so she's missing teeth. Even if she wasn't I'm not sure she could eat this. It's big dog sized kibbles. I have to crunch each one down with a spice grinder - I won't be doing that long term so I'll have to look for something else. by on 11/26/2019
I have an older dog with kidney and Cushing disease. She needs a small kibble and softer. She also has a fair amount of teeth missing. I see a lot of others feel the same as I do. Listen to us if you care about our pets. If you don't consider our request, I'm looking for another brand. by on 02/27/2018
I would buy this product over and over.
My 12 year old standard schnauzer just started on this food and she loves it. by on 11/17/2017
Density of wet aging care dog food
When I first used this food for my pet, the consistency was soft. Now the recipe or formula has changed and it is very, very firm. My little dog is 17 and I used to be able to put her daily medications in a bite of food. Now the food will not cover or hold to the capsule or tablet she must take. Hoping you can make the old recipe again or offer a choice between the extremely firm or soft variety. by on 02/20/2017
Kibble too large
At my vet's directive, I started my Shih Tzu mix on the g/d 6 months ago. I decided to get the canned and dry to strike a balance, and to give her something to crunch. She is almost two, so I felt the dry would be good for her teeth. I had no idea the kibble would be so large! I have had two other small dogs on k/d and i/d in the past, and the dry was appropriately sized. I have had to wet and smash the g/d dry, otherwise she picks them out of dish, drops on floor and tries to eat later, but with another dog in house I can't risk it. I see other comments about this issue so I am adding my voice to them - please make smaller bites. Big dogs can eat any size kibble, small ones cannot. by on 09/24/2016
Kibble too large for small dog
Thankful that my 14 year old 11 pound dog likes this in dry kibble because she does not like the k/d for kidney issues. However, the kibble is too large and I have to smash it before she can eat it, due to missing teeth, and just too large/hard for a little dog. I like for her to have some dry food, not just canned all the time. Surely that is good for her teeth. But they need to make a smaller kibble for senior dogs, as I would expect most senior dogs have teeth problems too. Thanks. by on 07/04/2016
Not as thirsty anymore!
We adopted an older dog who drank a lot of water. This has helped her with her thirst issues. I also wish they made smaller kibble size since she is only 9 lbs the kibble has to be broken up for her to eat. A 15 lb bag would also be great! by on 03/06/2016
You changed the taste!
My dog use to love the g/d soft dog food but since you've changed the formula she won't touch it. I can tell its different just by the texture. Why did you mess with a good thing?? This was the only prescription dog food she liked! by on 02/01/2016
Noticed change within a couple weeks
My 13 year old shih tzu started drinking more water and having accidents, so I took her to the vet. After running several tests, he said it was just her kidneys slowing down and recommended this dog food. There was definitely a difference in her health within a couple of weeks. She isn't drinking as much water and no accidents. The only problem is the kibble is too large for her and she's not fond of the taste. I've tried wetting it down, but she won't have anything to do with it. So now I'm smashing it up and mixing it up into the canned g/d. She likes the canned, but still turns her nose up at the canned/dry mixture, which she will eventually eat when hungry enough. Having to smash it up is kind of pain, but she's worth it, so will keep doing it. I hope Hills will consider making a smaller kibble in this formula. by on 01/09/2016
g/d food
excellent product wish it wasn't so costly. Your coupons help a lot with the cost and are greatly appreciated by on 12/30/2014
This is a well formulated product for aging dogs
This was recommended by our regular vet as a maintenance diet for our 13 year old Yorkie. He has enjoyed good health over a full and active life (now made a little more active by his 2 year old companion!). He and I are both entering later life, which means attention to achieve a healthy diets in the face of diminished physical stamina and activity. Enjoyable nourishment without becoming overweight is our mutual goal. by on 10/17/2014
Rusty always enjoys the food. He gobbles it up immediately.
As long as Rusty is happy we are happy. He has never turned away for g/d and enjoys it. G/d has a lot of nourishment for an older dog. Rusty will be 11 this month and he still plays fetch every single day. by on 09/11/2014
our vet has us using this product.
It seems to be working on three of our dogs, may it will on the other one. by on 06/30/2014
This dry food is palatable.
My dog has been on this diet for about 3 weeks and loves it! by on 04/27/2014
He loves it
My 8-yr old bichon switched to this from the urinary health diet per the vet's direction, He loves it and I like the coupons!!! by on 02/17/2014
Just what she needs.
Very good product without alot of fillers. Our Bishon was having kidney problems with stones. Since we have given her the Oerscription Diet she is healthier and happier. by on 01/09/2014
g/d has helped keep our little dog healthy for many years!
Our little Poodle / Shih Tzu / Bichon mix had some issues - we started her on g/d and she is now 15 - still going strong - she has had very good health since we made the switch to g/d. Thank You!! My only complaint would be that you stopped making the 40 lb bag, so now we buy 3 - 8.5 lb bags at a time - hoping you will go back to larger bags available. by on 10/07/2013
Excellent products
Prescription g/d cardiac diet has been the only dry and wet dog food I have used for the past three years and has maintained a good health for my Schnauzer. She had experienced acute medical problems requiring hospitalizations on two occasions but after initiating Rx Diet, she has been doing very well for a 13-year-old dog. Realize it is an expense to feed, but certainly has lived up to its quality. by on 09/25/2013
Seems to help my 12 year old dog
My dogs suffers from bladder stones and the gd formula keeps the stones from forming while still giving him the energy to stay acticve by on 08/24/2013
Stopped my dog's bladder stones.
My pug Kayla had bladder stones twice.. one incident had her bladder over 90% full with gravel like deposits. Both incidents required surgery. Since starting a diet of Hills Science Diet G/D she has not had any issues since. Over 6 years of no stones. by on 08/21/2013
