Hills Feline k/d Early Support Chicken Dry Cat Food
*Veterinary Authorization Required*
When cats have damage to kidney tissues, the kidneys cannot perform as well as before, like filtering and reabsorbing nutrients. The condition is not reversible, but progression may be slowed, and taking action early can be beneficial. Therapeutic foods for kidney conditions are designed to help reduce workload on the kidneys, enabling them to function more effectively. Cats with decreased kidney function may experience loss of appetite and their food intake might decline.
Hill's nutritionists and veterinarians developed Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Early Support clinical nutrition for early protection of a cat's vital kidney function and to encourage eating for strength and energy. This dry food is made with chicken and has an irresistible taste that cats love.
Acting early with the nutrition of Prescription Diet k/d Early Support can help improve quality of life and lengthen the relationship with your cat.
