Hill's® Prescription Diet® u/d Non-Struvite Urinary Tract Health Adult Dog Food
u/d for our Chihuahuas
We have 2 male Chihuahua's, one 4 years and the other 1+. The older dog had bladder stones, had them surgically removed and our vet recommended Hills u/d as a preventative for future recurrence. For our dogs, the size of the u/d product is too large. Our dogs take one piece from their bowl, start chewing and what ever falls to the floor may or may not get eaten. So there's a fair amount of cleanup for us, hence the "good" versus "excellent" rating. I'd suggest that Hills consider also making this product in a small breed size. Otherwise, for a prescription product, the dogs love the taste and hopefully it will help in preventing more bladder stone events.

U/d Hills Prescription Diet for our husky after bladder stone surgery
This is the only dry dog food that I can feed my husky Timber without making a special raw type dog food. It helps for me to know this food is specifically made for dogs with his condition and not having to guess what crazy combinations of raw foods will keep the bladder stones from coming back. My only complaint is that this gets very expensive to feed my 75 LB male husky, 2 1/4 cups a day and buying the 27.5 Lb bag every 3-4 months. His blood work keeps coming back negative so this food does work.

So far this product seems to be helping my pup right along, along with other products and vet advice.
My pup likes this brand and we also give him pieces as treats. Just wish it was a little more affordable, on top of Vet bills and making sure he doesn't produce more stones, the expenses are hard on a pet owner to keep a happy healthy pup.

PLEASE, PLEASE make pieces smaller - like w/d with chicken
I have a small dog with only a few teeth. He has been eating the w/d with chicken small bites for years with no problem. He recently developed bladder stones, so we had to switch to u/d. He loves the canned food, but I like to use the dry food - which he also loves - for treats and some variation. Because the chunks are so much larger than the w/d, I have to sit and cut each piece of the u/d in half - a tedious task. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make the bites smaller - the size of w/d with chicken is fine......
