I recommended this product because I would recommend following the advice of your Vet. One of my cats is on this prescription diet because she has kidney disease. She also has heart disease. However. Now that she has been on this product for a while (months), her pancreatic lipase (fPL) limits are NINE times the high end for a healthy cat, indicating she has pancreatitis - I believe due to the fat content of the K/D. If your cat needs to be on K/D, keep this in mind, discuss this with your Vet, and have your cat's bloodwork checked at least every 4 to 6 weeks. The K/D did stabilize her kidney condition, but after a while, she started throwing up. With careful observation and accounting of this condition, my Vet ordered the special pancreas bloodwork. Now, in order to ensure the condition does not become fatal, or cause other problems such as diabetes, she has to come off the K/D. Bottom line, the K/D does help cats with kidney disease, but it can lead to other problems. Careful observation and bloodwork, along with discussions with your veterinarian would be wise.

Great choice for cat with kidney failure
Our cat was diagnosed with kidney failure and part of the treatment plan is the prescription food. We tried a variety of products but found this one to be the moistest. It made it easier for the cat to eat and he likes it. The price is very expensive compared to regular food but you don't have an option when the cat has to have it.
