A Dog's Guide to Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Kidney Care Dry Dog Food

If a domesticated dog could speak human, we might hear something about their digestive care. A dog's digestive health can be negatively affected by a great many things that upset their stomach, disrupt their normal kidney function, and generally their bodily system.

Good thing that there are dog food brands that prioritize a dog's digestive healthcare, specifically Hill's Prescription Diet k/d. Hill's pioneering research and great nutritional formulas drastically transform a pet's life The dog food brand Hill conducts 5 million quality and safety checks per year to ensure the highest standard of quality.

Hill's nutritionists and veterinarians developed the #1 vet-recommended Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Canine to balance a dog's highest nutritional needs and to specifically care for the dog's kidneys. The Hill's Prescription k/d dog foods are therapeutic and guarantee a happy and active life, your dog would ruff.

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

Hill's nutritionists and veterinarians manufactured Prescription Diet k/d specifically for renal dogs to support their kidney function and help sustain muscle mass. The nutrition of k/d is clinically tested nutrition to improve & lengthen quality of life.

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

The kidneys' role is to filter waste and toxins from the blood, such as phosphorus and sodium, to maintain the normal balance of fluid and minerals within the body. As pets get 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.

This recipe creates an unfavorable environment for the formulation of kidney crystals and stones by controlling the kidney's phosphorus and sodium levels, protects essential kidney and heart function via its amount of L-Carnitine and omega-3 fatty acids, and supports dogs' natural ability to build lean muscle via the food's high level of amino acids.

Hill's new Enhanced Appetite Trigger (E.A.T.) Technology has specially tailored to renal dogs in the future in Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Kidney Care Canned Cat Food improved 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 (12.0 %) 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 (18.0 %) is the term for fat-soluble materials such as lipid content in your dog's food when ingested.

Crude Fiber (5.0 %) is a measure of indigestible cellulose, pentosans, lignin, and other components of this type of chemical fibers. A highly digestible fibrous food boosts the healthy absorption of essential vitamins and minerals. It provides major intestinal tract peristalsis, a wave-like muscle contraction to relax the stomach muscles.
