Hill's Prescription Diet z/d Canine Ultra Dry Dog Food
A must if your dog has allergies!
I spent a good two years trying to find my dog a food that would help with his allergy/skin problems. I tried everything from holistic to grain free! Nothing worked! I ended up going to the vet and he put my dog on this food! Hydrolyzed Protein System made by Hills, it is so much better for my dogs system! His allergy and itchy skin problem has cleared up and I love this dog food!

Great for my dogs and they love it
One of my dogs got a flu-like illness about once a quarter with no apparent cause. My vet recommended this food and so far so good. She is well and loves the food which is great a she is picky. One of the best things is that my most picky eater a 16 year old cocker spaniel absolutely loves it! The first night I gave it to the one dog, my cocker did something she have never done--she went over to the other dog's bowl to steal the food. Well, it is a hit with all of my dogs and if it keeps them well it pleases me no end. The only problem is that it is unbelievably expensive.

The z/d dog food relieved his severe itching/chewing.
This is the third bag of the Hill's z/d dog food. It was recommended by our veterinarian to see if his excessive itching/chewing was related to a food (protein) allergy. It was completely effective in relieving his excessive itching/chewing. I did notice that his stools became much softer and the frequency was reduced from 2 to 1 stool per day- which the vet said is normal. Being a German Shepherd dog ( almost 9 years old) he has had digestive issues in the past. Although the food is very expensive, I was willing to pay it for his relief of allergy symptoms. Unfortunately, he now is very reluctant to eat it and often refuses it completely. He has had many dietary changes recently which may have contributed to this. Otherwise, the food was effective for him and I hope to continue with it.

Very convenient to order the product on line.
Reliable company, it certainly allows you the convenience of ordering a large quantity of food without the burden of carrying it oneself.

Our dog thinks it tastes great!
Our dog is having some unknown allergies and therefore my vet suggested Hill's Science Diet z/d. I thought I would have a super hard time getting my dog to eat this but quite the opposite as he is enjoying meal time with no issues. To purchase through my vet would have been a little bit more so I am happy that I found it through chewy.com. Also purchasing through chewy.com allowed me to get my other dog food at the same time which was very convenient. I have been purchasing all my dog food for several weeks now on chewy.com and I am very pleased with the service and food I have received.

Really upset Ella's bowels
My doctor recommended this product for my pitbull Ella for her allergy condition. Since she's been on it, her stools have been erratic and one step away from being diarrheal. She seems to have lost weight and is hungry all the time. To be honest, she has also been on medication which might have something to do with it, but she's been on the same medication before without any problem. Will have to see what the doc says at her next appointment.

I was at a loss when my vet had a fire and wasn't open. Chewy helped me get the food I needed without any hassle. Great customer service. Food arrive as scheduled.

PAT'S ENERGY LEVEL IS IMPROVED, BUT STUHL IS STILL PROBLEMATIC.
Our 12 year old golden seems more alert. Her digestive tract is obviously improved, but her droppings vary between soft and very soft. She has only been on Hills ZD for 2 weeks. Being 12, she maintains her weight on less than the recommended quantity of food. She weighs 74 lbs and we have been feeding only 3 cups daily.

My dogs love this food
While expensive, this food may be what solves my Rottweiler's constant ear infections. After 90 days so far so good. My dogs were grazers before and never ate their food right away. Not now - they eat it immediately. It smells like a pot roast for dogs. Size of dry crunchies is good. What I don't understand is the need for a prescription for purchase. Chewy delivers quick and makes it easy to obtain.

I got to your website from Hills web site. I've been very pleased. Britney even gave me a web site for some medication you don't carry where I can get a good price, which for me was above duty.

No other choice for my dog's allergies!
This food has chicken as protien and supposedly its hydrolyzed so small it cant cause allergic reaction. My dog had allergy testing and is allergic to chicken and tons of other ingredients in dog foods. I searched for a dry food and could not find a beef, fish, rabbit, or turkey dry food without other foods he can't have in it. Not even a dehydrated or raw food. So we are trying this food.
It is expensive!!!! My vet wanted more for it, so I order it here. Just had to have Chewy call my vet for prescription approval.
My dog's allergies got so bad before allergy testing that he got a hemotoma on his left ear from head shaking and dirty ears. He hated the cone he wore while his ear drained.

only food dog can eat
This dog food is the only food my dog can eat and keep down. We had to keep her on steroids two weeks then after a week she would quit eating and drinking. Once she started eating this food we have had no problems with her eating or drinking.

Excellent product for dogs with allergies
This product has definitely helped my dog. I still add other food like peas and a few string beans but ZD is by far the primary food . Glad I started with Chewy.com they really have helped with questions I had regarding this and other products. a GREAT PLACE TO SHOP.

Allergic reaction resolution!
My poor Sadie has been riddled with skin afflictions for about six months now. She is constantly itching but since we started Hills she seems to be itching less and her sores are healing. The vet told me it would take about 9 weeks to see the full effect if indeed she has allergies. We are about 4 weeks in now. I will be sure to let you know.

Helps with GI and Allergy Issues
My dog's quality of life has improved significantly since we switched to z/d, but she's much more interested in the canned version than she is the dry.

My male English Bulldog's itching has greatly improved since I have been using ZD. And whatever it has in it, it distracts fleas. His skin improved.
My English Bulldog's sensitive skin has improved so much since I started using Hills ZD for sensitive skin. The itching has stopped and the redness disappeared. He also loves the flavor so much. His digestion is also very good, so whatever it has in it, helps him in so many ways, including him not getting one flea. I appreciate that this can be shipped to me without a shipping charge as well. I have tried other products for sensitive skin, but it doesn't work like the Hills Science Diet ZD for sensitive skin!

Works for my dogs allergies
I was resistant when the vet said it would help with allergies. It works great for my dog. What I'm most excited about is that you deliver. Thanks

My dog was suffering both from skin issues and random vomiting (1-2 times per week). Since switching to z/d, in the past month she has vomited only once, and had just a single skin flare-up. I'm hopeful that this will be even less frequent over the long-term. Also, it's the only dog food I've ever used that actually smells good!

This product has helped our Yorkie
Our Yorkie is picky about her food, but she really likes this product. It has helped her allergy problem. I recommended it to my sister for her itchy dogs. Thanks

This works, and Jasper loves it.
My vet recommended Hill's Prescription ZD for my dog's skin allergy. Jasper loves the taste and I can see the difference in his skin after just 1 week. No more red, raw patches. Jasper is a calm dog again.

Works well enough
My recent rescue and I have been struggling for a while to find a brand of dog food that didn't upset his stomach. Recommended by our Vet, Z/d has definitely helped in changing his stool from being liquid to being a soft level of 'firm'. With a sprinkling of Metamucil at each meal (2 1/8 teaspoons in the morning, 3 in the afternoon) we've finally achieved a level of firmness that I'm happy with (with the added bonus that cleaning up after my dog is now a lot easier).
My reason for not giving 5 stars is mainly the price. I bought my first 8lbs bag from my Vet for $50, so am absolutely happy that I can find it almost $20 cheaper on Chewy. However when you compare it to other dog food brands it's still rather pricey. That said until I find another brand that works better, I'll keep coming back to Z/d.

Chewy's is great!
I love buying food and supplies from Chewy.com. I always get the items mailed to my door so I don't have to handle the heavy items like I do at the store. Getting litter in and out of the shopping cart is a major pain! I like that I can also get the prescription diet foods for less money than at the vet's office. We actually ordered a pet carrier that turned out to be too small for our kitty and they shipped us another without charge and told us to give the other one to charity or a friend. That happens so rare now that I have been buying supplies from Chewy everysince then.
