My older Shih Tzu is starting to have kidney problems. I tried the dry NF Formula. He had a had time chewing it and didn't much like the taste, either. I changed him to the canned and I like the ingredients better than the dry, and, he eats it willingly.
My 10 year old Aussie Ruby had been eating a kidney formula from another company for a few years and now was refusing her food, eating a mere fraction of what she used to. She lost so much weight I thought she was going to starve to death. My vet suggested a change to NF, and I was amazed at how Ruby's appetite picked up. She's now back to eating regular amounts and has regained much of her original weight and energy over the past month.

After getting the heart breaking news that my baby might have kidney failure and that she would have to be on a special kidney diet for the rest of her life, I brought every dry and wet food out there. I was trying to get her to eat, but she turned her nose up to everything, a month had gone by and she would only nibble on her food. The 4th product I tried to get her to eat was Purina NF Dry, the minute I opened the bag, she ran into the kitchen to see what it was. She gobbled it down and finished a full cup of food in one sitting, where before she might eat a bite or two before turning away. She keep coming back into the kitchen for more. This is day 4 and we are going strong, she loves it! Thanks Purina
I have been buying this for about a year now and this site helps so much with the cost and the food has done so much for my dogs. Thanks again!
Our 12 and a half beagle mix was diagnosed with chronic kidney failure in July of this year. They put her on the Purina NF dry dog food. We just went today for a recheck of her kidney values. They were all within normal range except one, and that one was not that bad. The Vet was pleased. Our dog loves the food and cant wait until her next meal.

My vet recommended a low protein food for my min pin. He was constantly drinking water and urinating. I bought Purina NF online based on the reviews. My dog likes the food but the pieces are too big for him and he won't eat the amount of food he should. Is there a Purina NF Kidney function made for small dogs? I don't want to give up on the food because it has made a difference as he is no longer drinking as much and the urinating has decreased significantly.
My dog loves it! She was picking out the kernels of NF when I was transitioning her over to this diet and leaving the original diet in her bowl. It has helped her kidneys, it decreased her kidney levels on her chemistries.
My 2 yr old standard poodle was diagnosed with juvenile renal dz in Nov. 2014 and he's been on NF ever since. He absolutely loves it! This is a great kidney diet for an even wonderful price! Thanks PVP!
We recently purchased the Purina NF Kidney Function Dog Food & what a blessing! Our Cinnamon has had kidney issues for a few years now, with her kidney values fluctuating year to year. Recently, her vet told us that her values were slightly high & he wants to put her on a special kidney food diet. We purchased a $50 KD food bag from the vet & Cinnamon wouldn't touch it. Her vet suggested we try the Purina NF Kidney Function food. We were nervous because Cinny is such a picky eater. So, we ordered it & it arrived in the mail today. Whatever ingredient that lures dogs to the kitchen as soon as the bag opens, is clearly enticing! As soon as we opened the bag, Cinnamon jumped from the bed & ran towards the bowl in the kitchen & began eating! We had to give her more, just in case it wasn't enough. We are thrilled that she likes this food & we can't thank Purina enough! Hopefully, she continues eating this food, but so far, so good. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
