I have used the Science Diet H/D for my Greyhound who has heart issues. I rely on Science Diet because I know it is a quality brand and this particular special needs diet, naturally, has no salt and its other ingredients are geared towards dogs with heart problems. In addition to the H/D dog food, I also buy the Science Diet h/d treats for my dog which are also salt free. That way I know she is getting not only dog food geared for her particular needs but I can give her healthy treats as well and not have to worry about salt content, excess fat, etc., that comes with some other dog food/treats. In addition to those, I also feed her organic treats which I know are healthy for her. I think the fact that Hills also makes the h/d treats for special needs dogs is great because that way they get the best of both worlds and owners don't have to worry about the treats they feed their dogs unless they make them at home.

However, the big drawback with Hills is the H/D dog food is consistently going up in price for the exact same food and the exact same quantity and I think it is fastly reaching the point where if this trend continues, I will look for another high quality brand that has heart issue dog food. I see no reason, whatsoever, for HIlls to continue to raise the cost of this special needs food every three months which is what they seem to be doing. They keep up with this trend, and I have no problems with switching to another high quality brand. Hills is good, but it is not the only dog on the block!

This was recommended by my vet for my Doberman, he has Cardiomyopathy, and this is a heart healthy food.

Unfortunately, it is rather expensive, but PetFoodDirect has the best prices, and he is worth every penny.

He isn't crazy about the food, although my little dog loves to pick up the spilled food, and seems to love it! I tend to add a little something to help it more palatable.

Bottom line, I would recommended PetMedDirect when comparing vet and other website prices, plus the specials on shipping help as well!

Need smaller kibbles

By I dont have one

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet h/d Canine Cardiac Health Dry Food:

I'm still in the process of switching my dog to the h/d and he seems to like it. He's actually been on the i/d due to a recent issue and the kibble of the i/d is a perfect size for my senior. Also, I notice that the canned i/d comes in a stew formula, which is nice since I use it as a gravy over the dry food. Since most heart patients seem to be seniors, wouldn't it make sense to make the kibble smaller? And are you working on making a stew formula for the canned h/d?

Smaller kibble would be great

By Marce033

from Costa Rica

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet h/d Canine Cardiac Health Dry Food:

My 15 yo dog is been doing great with this kibble, but she's old and she has lost some teeth which makes it hard for her to bite on those big kibbles. Before she was on the senior diet that had small bites and it was perfect. Other than that she likes the product.

I don't understand

By eyesablur

from Kentucky, United States

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet h/d Canine Cardiac Health Dry Food:

This food has the worst ingredients possible for my dog. The main ingredient is corn! There is no real meat in it either. Why did my vet recommend this for heart health. Recent studies have also shown that dogs with heart conditions need protein and this is low in protein. We have opted to switch to a food with better ingredients, low sodium and higher protein level. He is doing much better.
