Your dog's kidneys are crucial to her continued health. Kidneys filter waste and toxins from the blood, and maintain the normal balance of fluid and minerals within the body. As pets age, kidney damage may occur. Kidney damage is irreversible, and will lead to further loss of kidney function. Dogs with kidney damage may also experience appetite loss and reduced caloric intake, which, in turn, may lead to loss of muscle mass.
Hill's nutritionists and veterinarians developed Prescription Diet k/d, clinical nutrition especially formulated to support your dog's kidney function, enhance appetite, and help sustain muscle mass. In fact, k/d is clinically tested nutrition to improve and lengthen quality of life.
How It Works:
- Controlled phosphorus levels & low sodium levels
- Enhanced Appetite Trigger (E.A.T.)™ Technology for dogs
- High level of essential amino acids, the building blocks of muscle protein
- Therapeutic levels of L-Carnitine and Omega-3 fatty acids
Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Canine is a complete and balanced food that provides all the nutrition your dog needs. Please consult your veterinarian for further information on how Hill's Prescription Diet foods can help your dog to continue to enjoy a happy and active life.
