Product Description

Food sensitivity and intolerance are potentially serious problems that can result in sensitive or irritated skin, coat and ear conditions or even gastrointestinal upset. Cats that have a food sensitivity or intolerance, also called adverse reactions to food, typically experience an abnormal response to the protein in the food. If your cat suffers from adverse reactions to food, it is even more important to feed the right food. At Hill's, nutritionists and veterinarians have developed clinical nutrition especially formulated to help manage your cat's dietary sensitivity and help reduce the possibility of adverse reactions to food.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 71 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by A good choice for my persian I had to switch my persian to this diet because he was on the Royal Canine hypoallergenic diet earlier but he suddenly decided to stop liking it. I transitioned it in with the old diet and he eventually loved it. I only gave it 4 stars because the shape of the food is not Persian friendly. Persians normally don't chew their food and like to just swallow it so although he likes the taste, he has a hard time keeping it in his mouth. I wish the company would consider making a persian friendly version. The upside is that there is a wet version. Overall, I'm happy with the new diet. **I would also like to point out that I had already purchased a Royal Canine hypoallergenic dry food bag for my cat that I hadn't opened yet. Since my cat stopped eating that one completely, I ordered this diet for him prescribed by his Vet. Customer support at Chewy.com was kind enough to give me a full refund on the old unopened bag. 5 stars on customer service! May 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Customer Service i've used this before for my cats,Flopsy and Tessa. But the difference is the fabulous customer service from Chewy! May 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product After my cat, Penny turned 2, he began scratching himself to the point where he would bleed and lose his hair. His belly was always red, and he was just miserable. After visiting many vets, I finally found one that recommended a prescription diet for him. After using this product and ONLY this product for about two weeks, his skin started to clear up and the scratching stopped. However, if your cat gets in to any other kind of food or treats (like mine tries to) the product does not work as effectively. Luckily, he is not a picky eater, so he enjoys the taste of the food too. I do have another cat who is a VERY picky eater (but no allergies), and he refuses to eat this food. If you have multiple cats and only one with an allergy, I would not recommend trying to put them all on this food. It is very expensive, so it's hard to keep up with. However, the product is definitely worth it if your kitty has a food allergy. February 29, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Vet prescribed this food and it works! We were using another vet prescribed major brand product for a specific cat. That worked for awhile and then there were problems with digestion. We saw a new vet who prescribed the Hills z/d and man, what a difference! Within 5 days we were switched over with no problems. The one cat with the problem, got better with the new food (and medication.) The other cat who use to throw up every other night or way too often, stopped throwing up at all! At all!! And that cat's skin issues have gotten better, not perfect, but improved, just from changing the diet. All these prescribed diet foods are pricey, but in our case made a world of difference to the quality of our kitties' lives. April 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by He likes it!!! Skyy is very happy with his new dry food. He has had some bowel problems, and might be on the road to recovery. Thank you Chewy Family May 3, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Seems to have solved the problem Tuck's fur is growing back and the skin eruptions are gone. We have only had one issue with food being thrown up after eating since we started the new food. Tuck is still very very thin I hope he will put on some meat to cover his bones soon. Ace who did not have any problems with their previous food is happy to eat the new one. He has lost some weight and he really needed to. He is a "BIG" boy about five pound over what would be best for him. Tuck always skinny may need some aid to gain weight back he is eating but not gaining any weight. April 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by products features I tried a different brand (Royal Canin) - who knows why but my cat would not eat it - switched to Hill's prescription diet and cat is eating it just fine - he has been on it for a month so I do not know if it is curing his allergy issues - will not know for a while but happy to have found a food he likes and hopefully it will solve his health issues - will follow up at a later date - April 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good products & good prices! Trying to get cat to accept this cat food on the Vet's advice. Cats can certainly be finicky but I think acceptance is coming. Canine Fortiflora I've used for my Golden for years and it is a Godsend!!!! April 7, 2016
