My 13 year old shih tzu started drinking more water and having accidents, so I took her to the vet. After running several tests, he said it was just her kidneys slowing down and recommended this dog food. There was definitely a difference in her health within a couple of weeks. She isn't drinking as much water and no accidents. The only problem is the kibble is too large for her and she's not fond of the taste. I've tried wetting it down, but she won't have anything to do with it. So now I'm smashing it up and mixing it up into the canned g/d. She likes the canned, but still turns her nose up at the canned/dry mixture, which she will eventually eat when hungry enough. Having to smash it up is kind of pain, but she's worth it, so will keep doing it. I hope Hills will consider making a smaller kibble in this formula.

At my vet's directive, I started my Shih Tzu mix on the g/d 6 months ago. I decided to get the canned and dry to strike a balance, and to give her something to crunch. She is almost two, so I felt the dry would be good for her teeth. I had no idea the kibble would be so large! I have had two other small dogs on k/d and i/d in the past, and the dry was appropriately sized. I have had to wet and smash the g/d dry, otherwise she picks them out of dish, drops on floor and tries to eat later, but with another dog in house I can't risk it. I see other comments about this issue so I am adding my voice to them - please make smaller bites. Big dogs can eat any size kibble, small ones cannot.

Density of wet aging care dog food

By Riverwalk

from Arlington, Tx

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet g/d Canine Early Cardiac-Healthy Aging Dry Food:

When I first used this food for my pet, the consistency was soft. Now the recipe or formula has changed and it is very, very firm. My little dog is 17 and I used to be able to put her daily medications in a bite of food. Now the food will not cover or hold to the capsule or tablet she must take. Hoping you can make the old recipe again or offer a choice between the extremely firm or soft variety.

Kibble too large for small dog

By Joanie

from Louisiana, United States

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet g/d Canine Early Cardiac-Healthy Aging Dry Food:

Thankful that my 14 year old 11 pound dog likes this in dry kibble because she does not like the k/d for kidney issues. However, the kibble is too large and I have to smash it before she can eat it, due to missing teeth, and just too large/hard for a little dog. I like for her to have some dry food, not just canned all the time. Surely that is good for her teeth. But they need to make a smaller kibble for senior dogs, as I would expect most senior dogs have teeth problems too. Thanks.

Not as thirsty anymore!

By Jitterbug

from North Carolina, United States

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet g/d Canine Early Cardiac-Healthy Aging Dry Food:

We adopted an older dog who drank a lot of water. This has helped her with her thirst issues. I also wish they made smaller kibble size since she is only 9 lbs the kibble has to be broken up for her to eat. A 15 lb bag would also be great!

You changed the taste!

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet g/d Canine Early Cardiac-Healthy Aging Dry Food:

My dog use to love the g/d soft dog food but since you've changed the formula she won't touch it. I can tell its different just by the texture. Why did you mess with a good thing?? This was the only prescription dog food she liked!
