Why should your dog eat Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Kidney Care Canned Dog Food?

How does Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Kidney Care Canned Dog Food work?

A kidneys' role is to filter waste and toxins from the blood, such as phosphorus and sodium, and maintain the normal balance of fluid and minerals within the body. As dogs are getting older, decreased kidney function (i.e., renal dogs) is more likely to occur. Dogs then experience a decreased appetite, caloric intake, and loss of muscle mass.

The product creates an unfavorable environment for excess materials, such as phosphorus and sodium, in the kidney to form bladder stones and crystals. The recipe controls their levels, protects essential kidney and heart function with L-Carnitine and omega-3 fatty acids, and supports building lean muscle with high amino acids.

The well-known pet food brand Hill's new Enhanced Appetite Trigger (E.A.T.) technology is specially tailored for renal dogs to improve their kidney care by stimulating their appetite and increasing their caloric intake.

Nutritional Value

The Hill's Prescription Diet k/d products list their specific ingredients. Below are the crude nutritional values in protein, fat, and fiber:

Crude Protein (2.5 %) is the measure of all sources of nitrogen and includes nonprotein nitrogen, which may have no human value. Crude protein is a chemical analysis of the protein (e.g., chicken, milk, etc.) and non-protein (e.g., grains) amounts in the food.

Crude Fat (4.5 %) is the term for fat-soluble materials such as lipid content in your dog's food when ingested.

Crude Fiber (2.5 %) is a measure of indigestible cellulose, pentosans, lignin, and other components of this type of chemical fibers. It has little food value but provides major intestinal tract peristalsis, a wave-like muscle contraction to relax the stomach muscles.
