Our elderly dog really didn't like the Hills renal food, she was leaving much of it every day and I was getting worried that there was no alternative. She eats all of the Royal Canin eagerly - we use a mix of tin, pouch and biscuit. Clean bowl every time
Millie really enjoyed this over other dried food products. She even ate this on it's own as a snack.
My dog really likes the renal food. Will be buying it again may take some time only eating one tin a week. Slow progress.
My dog does not like the biscuits but will eat the wet food
On 29 Jan 2017 Pet Drugs Online responded:
Hopefully they will eventually take to the biscuits could be they find them a little hard but if you moisten they will be easier to eat
My dog has recently been diagnosed with chronic renal failure and had tried hills renal food which she run away from when I gave it to her. It was worrying as she stopped eating. Glad to say tried this food and now eats happily with the tins of renal food.
