You can only buy the food from your Vet, but I highly recommend it. It worked wonders for my baby!
Glad your cat it doing good but chronic renal failure is an ongoing disease of the kidneys in which damage to the kidneys is irreversiable. Perhaps your cat had Acute kidney failure which is usually caused by poisoning, trauma etc that can be reversed if aggressively treated immediately.
By the way the ingredients in Hills or any other prescription food is mostly chemicals, grain & fillers that our pets do not need in their diets. A grain free holistic food with all natural human grade food is far better for their health. If I had been aware of this before feeding my cat Royal Canin - she wouldn't have been affected by the food recall which lead to the kidney failure she is currently going through.
