    A two-year clinical study of dogs with naturally occurring chronic kidney disease compared the effects of feeding the nutrition in Prescription Diet® k/d® Canine versus a typical adult grocery food:1

    • Dogs fed the nutrition of Prescription Diet® k/d® Canine had slower progression of chronic kidney disease and a longer survival time.1,2
    • Monitor the urine. Note: Urine pH of individual dogs may vary due to complicating factors such as time of feeding before urine collection, type of urine collection, individual animal variation, or test methodology.
    • S+OXSHIELDTM: Formulated to promote a urinary environment that reduces the risk of developing struvite & calcium oxalate crystals
