The original ud can dog good was great The New ud dogs cans have a new recipe THE SMELL OF IT IS HORRENDOUS. the orignal cans DID NOT smell. I do not know what was changed but it smells like urine. I called hills and they said it has a slight change in the recipe but could not say why it stinks so bad

It's very good, just it's sadly not available anymore, and now my dog is losing weight fast and suffering because hills Australia stoped importing it from America, so thanks for that

Was working great for my dog who's already had 2 bladder surgeries for bladder stones. But I haven't been able to purchase since November 2020 and today is April 25, 2021!

Originally prescribed for our dog. Whilst expensive it was the only urinary related product available so we have purchased it for a number of years. The consistency of the product has deteriorated in the past 12 year. Seems that there is more water being added to increase profits.

My older 8+ year old male Shih Tzu had bladder surgery in 4/18 to remove stones in his bladder and urethra. He was put on C/D Diet, both dry and wet once the stones were evaluated. He is now scheduled to have more stones removed this coming Wednesday. The vet did not give me other options. Am now searching for recipes for homemade dogs food. very expensive to not work.

My dog has to eat this food to stay healthy and stay alive , never the less I have to pinch pennys to afford his food the price is very hard to digest.

Pet needs to be on U/D. We buy it by the case. When we open a new case we are never sure what condition/consistency the contents will be. Hill's assures us the dog food is good, which is a relief. However, we have had to call twice because each case is so different from the last.

Junior loves his u/d canned food! He runs around and does tricks when he sees me putting it in his bowl. The Science Diet rep was so pleasant to speak with and sent out coupons promptly. I wish Science Diet would make treats for dogs on u/d. That would be so appreciated!

My terrier Tessa had 2 bladder stone surgeries a year apart. First she had struvite stones, the second time she had oxalate stones. She began this food after her second surgery and has been healthy for a year and a half. My heart broke when she decided out of the blue to stop eating it one day. I had to switch to a different brand but am worried she will get stones again. If she wasn't such a picky eater I would still have her on this food today, it sure did the trick. And funny thing was she loved it for a year and a half! Who knows, she is a strange dog.

Stormy has been eating UD for about 1 1/2 years, every since his emergency surgery. He has done great and likes the food

Unfortunately, one of my adopted dogs developed a urinary condition resulting in crystals forming in the urinary canal. But fortunately, my vet diagnosed the problem early and prescribed Hill's u/d dog food for long term control of this condition. After starting this regimen with the u/d diet, immediate positive results occurred and my dog has thrived on the Hill's brand. And, with my confidence in resolving this issue with one pet, I started feeding my other dog the Hill's Beef & Barley; both dogs have been on this diet for five years and they are thriving with no medical problems. I would recommend an appropriate Hill's brand food for any dog or feline owner. If you want a healthy, happy pet with a beautiful coat consider feeding them one of the wonderful Hill's pet foods.

Our dog Bently loves the taste and would eat all day if we let him. It's nice to see him healthy once again. Since using this product he has had far less urinary tract infection. I highly recommend this product. It would be helpful if cost was a bit lower or you made more coupons available. Love love the product!

Wonderful product! Our dog loves it and has had no more kidney stones since using it!
by Kimala on 06/04/2015
Thank you for making this product. Our bulldog Sherman will have to be on prescription dog food for the rest of his life but....because of it, he's alive and healthy! Nothing can replace that so thank you!
by Sherman09 on 12/01/2014
Thanks to Hill's Prescription Diet I don't have to worry about my dog having the problems he's had in the past. After having surgery two years in a row he's now on the u/d diet and he loves it and so do we, just knowing that he can eat what he enjoys and we have piece of mind knowing what he eats will keep him healthy. Thank You Hill's.

6 yr old Shi tzu seems to love this canned food and so far his urinary tract is holding very good and that is good.
by littlepeble77 on 09/12/2014
Our dog can only eat this food because of two episodes with kidney stones and surgery. This has helped him to not have a third, knock on wood.
by melx5 on 08/07/2014
It is invaluable that there is a prescription dog food for dogs with special needs diets. We can know and trust that we are feeding our dog the best there is in Hill's. Thank you for making a prescription diet food to help us meet the special needs of our pet!

Kat is on the UD because she had crystals in her urine. She is not crazy about the dry food so I bought the canned to mix in with the dry. The canned food is too dry to coat the dry food to her taste. It is also too dry to wrap around the antibiotic capsules that she is currently taking. Lucky for me she usually swallows the chucnk with the pill in it without tasting it. The canned UD is too pricey for me to give it to her exclusively. I would suggest that you consider putting a "pop-top" type of lid on it.

my dogs can't wait to get their w/d canned food...
by minidalmatian on 05/22/2014
My Bichons love the taste of the food, but don't like they get less as the Kcal is higher than other non-prescription varieties. The benefit is that our older mail bichon has trimmed down from 15.3lbs to around 13.6lbs at age 12+. We are hoping the modified diet will slow the growth of the males bladder stones as we've had one surgery and now 2 basket retrievals in the last 4 years; we just switched since the last procedure about 4 months ago on recommendation from the U of M Vet Clinic....we're hopeful!
by jjmatman on 05/21/2014
I had absolutely no problem switching my dogs to UD. They eat dry for meals and receive small can amounts for treats and to take medication with. They really feel like they are getting a treat. The only problem I have with the canned food is that it crumbles when you try to push the pills inside. I wish the consistency was a little better.
by Weebs42 on 04/26/2014
Our dog has been on the u/d since his stones were removed and had NO recurrence of stones or raised levels in his urine!
by Susan390 on 04/23/2014
When our vet prescribed this food I was afraid it would smell medicinal, or so unlike regular dog food that Reagan wasn't going to touch it. But he chomped right in. The price is very reasonable considering the benefits and he has been doing fine since his first bite.
by Galt on 04/01/2014
After 3 kidney stone surgeries, the vet put my bichon on the Hills Prescription Diet u/d. My dog absolutely loves the taste.
by lovesdogs2 on 02/01/2014
My nine year old dalmation had emergency surgery for bladder stones 6 months ago. My vet informed me that one of the best recommendations that he could make that may prevent future problems would be to feed him UD prescription can food. I want to give him every chance, so I agreed. He loves the tastes, his energy has increased and so far the bladder issues are being held at bay. Other than the product being a bit pricey,,, I can't say enough good things about this diet.
by lotsofspots2 on 01/07/2014
I can trust Hill's with the health of my pets. I have two pugs that were diagnosed with calcium oxalates in their urinary bladders. They love the food and go crazy for it at meal time. Palatability was never an issue. The food is very cost effective because it prevents the huge expense of surgery. And it saves my dogs from going under the knife again! Included is a picture of the bladder stones from one of my pugs. I adopted him so he could have his surgery and not be euthanized!
by inapugseye on 12/20/2013
My dog had bladder stones when she was 3 1/2 years old. After surgery she was put on Science Diet U/D. She has been stone-free for almost six years. I attribute it to this food and a vigilant watch over her.

My 10 year old yorkie has always been a finiky eater. REALLY need to have some kind of flavor variations! Not even thru the 1st case of canned food and he is bored with it. He does think the dry is a treat tho!
by debb on 10/26/2013
From the time they were puppies, my dogs, Regan & Taco, would eat anything once. Once being the operative word! I would bring them food, put it in their bowl and they would eat like they hadn't been fed in weeks. But the next day they would sniff it and look up as if to say, "Not this..... again." I literally had 5 different types/brands of food for them, and I couldn't give them the same thing 2 days in a row. My vet suggested Hill's prescription diet wet, so I gave it a shot. They love it! The sound of the can opener longer causes them to bark, instead it makes them run around in circles at my feet. Thanks!
by Wynn67 on 10/03/2013
I have never had any problem getting him to eat. I intend on keeping him on this food.

My dog had a bladder cystotomy 2 1/2 years ago and had been on U/D ever since. I will admit I have been giving him non-prescription treats. This past week two more stones were found and removed on Friday. U/D may not be enough. The vet said we may need to add additional potassium citrate supplements in order to keep his Ph at 7. His urine will have a full UA in 14 days when the stitches come out and then again every 3 months for Ph and crystals. an x-ray will be taken every 6 months to be sure no stones are forming. I am hoping that this tie, without the treats, the U/D will be enough.
by Jenn22 on 01/26/2013
Our dog has had problems with bladder stones in the past. But since we started giving him ud he has been healthy and no problems. This is a great product and would recomend it to anyone that has a dog with this problem of bladder stones and urinary tract problems. Thank you
