DESCRIPTION Hill's nutritionists and veterinarians developed Prescription Diet k/d, clinical nutrition to support your dog's kidney function and help sustain muscle mass. The role of the kidneys is to filter waste and toxins from the blood, and maintain the normal balance of fluid and minerals within the body. As pets are getting older, damage to kidney tissues may occur. This process is irreversible, and will lead to further loss of kidney function. Renal dogs may also experience loss of appetite and their caloric intake might decline, which may lead eventually to loss of muscle mass. The good news is that the nutrition of k/d is clinically tested nutrition to improve and lengthen quality of life.
