Rated 3 out of 5 by whitecat2 This food is extremely MUSHY, like a watery pate, kittens don't care for it, but it has helped their digestion problems.
This food has been helpful for my kittens health problems. My kittens aren't crazy about this food, whatsoever. I think due to the fact that it really has NO texture. It's just a bunch of mush. It is good, though, to mix with a little water as directed by a vet, to syringe feed a cat or kitten if necessary. Also, It smells extremely bland, I don't even think there is a smell to it, which would make a kitten or cat more responsive to it, if there was a smell to it.
As another reviewer mentioned, why does it have pork in it? All in all, it has helped my 3 kittens get over their diarrhea/vomiting issues. I do recommend it for that, and for the syringe feedings. But it would be better if had a tiny amount of texture & smell to it. If your kittens require this I/D Rx food from your vet, you might want to get the I/D Chicken & Veg. Stew to put with this mush. But the Chicken & Veg. Stew is only avail. in 2.9 oz. cans, so the cost is much higher. The stew is much more attractive, smells good, and looks better. Too bad the can sizes are soooo small.

My cat was suddenly having issues when using the litter box and the vet thought it could be the food I was giving him. So this brand was recommended and he's been ok since (1 month). Another plus is that he really likes it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kelley502 The only food that helped my cat!
My cat was continuously throwing up due to severe constipation. According to my cat's vet the brand I was feeding her contained a lot of bone and she recommended I switch to a wet food versus the dry I have always given her. My cat would not any any wet food. After several attempts of different brands I found at the store; I asked the vet what she recommended & she suggested the gastrointestinal prescription diet wet food. I was shocked when my cat ate the entire serving in one setting!! She had turned her nose up to all the other brands but, ate this one immediately! It's easier for her to digest and she hasn't thrown up in 3 weeks now! I am so pleased with the quality of this food and according to my cat, it taste great!! It's a little pricey compared to what you get in the store but, you get what you pay for! It's worth it for a healthy happy kitty!!

My 8-month-old cat has had diarrhea since she was a kitten. I had her on the W/D formula for a while then tried I/D and she seems to be doing better on the I/D and likes it as well

Rated 4 out of 5 by RunTime714 Cat liked the food
Had a sick cat that had stopped eating, and the vet tried this out, and the cat seemed to love it. Unfortunately I don't know how much it helped her system, since she was terminally ill, but at least for the short time that we used it she was motivated to continue eating.

Both of my cats were recently switched to this diet by their vet. Both seem to have taken to it readily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OhSoManyCats What's not to like?
I was really hesitant to buy this food because I have three cats and only one of them needs the prescription for constipation. Unfortunately, what one eats, they all eat. They really like this food and it's very moist and easy to plop into a dish, which is important when I'm running out the door in the morning. Alfie seems to be much happier though I can't say I've actually seen any good poops. Either way, I can definitely tell he's not in pain and I'm really happy with how it turned out. Many thanks to the other reviewers for steering me in the right direction!

My Vet prescribed Hill's i/d for my cat who has digestive issues. So far, so good - she's doing well and she likes the food which is a relief as she is a picky eater.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BetM Hill's i/d Digestive care food
My cat had diarrhea for an unknown reason for 2 weeks. The Dr. Rx'd the I/d food from Hills and within a week her stools were back to normal. Still undiagnosed after 3 months now, but will continue with this food.
This food is not low fat, per my vet my 9 year old cat will need a low fat, high fiber diet soon. But, better to be overweight than to have on-going diarrhea!

Love this food. My cat was always a dry food cat till this year when she suddenly stopped being able to tolerate her science diet dry food and the vet recommended this food. She loves it so I do too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MNovak5528 Corrected my cat's digestion problem
We have two cats, aged 12 and 8, that were being fed dry food (not Hills). A few months ago, our 12 year old developed vomiting and diarrhea . Our vet prescribed I/D canned food and the vomiting and diarrhea stopped almost immediately. After a few weeks, we tried to return to dry food and the vomiting and diarrhea returned. So we have been feeding the I/D canned food to both cats since, with no further problems.
All of the cans have been consistent in texture, moistness, and pleasing to both cats, until our most recent case. I have marked down the quality rating because for all of the cans in our most recent case, the food is significantly drier and more granular, but the cats like the food just as well. We just think the food should be more consistent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by COCO Good product.
ID works for our cat who has a very sensitive digestive system. If she eats any more than 3oz. twice per day she will throw it up. We find this strange because she is incredibly healthy in every other way.
ID is all she can eat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by yipa Dubious as to why this is better than other foods
I just got off the phone with a Hills I/D rep and specifically asked what is it about this food that makes it better than any other food for cats with IDB? It seems the reps get asked this a lot and essentially what I got was a scripted reply...first off a nice story about how the rep herself adopted a cat from a shelter...it was vomiting...so she herself started giving the cat this food and it made a huge difference...then the rep started spouting off all this technical terminology about the benefits of the food. But yet she never answered my question of what is it about the ingredients in this particular food (which are very similar to many other cat foods out there) that makes this food better. She could not answer that. So the jury is out on this food...

We have 3 amazing cats, one is a purebred (Norwegian Forest Cat) he is 10years old. He has suffered with IBS from day one. He has suffered so terribly and it seemed like nothing we were doing was helping him. We tried everything and I truly mean everything. Our vet put him on prednisone...it helped for a month. Many years ago we tried the I/D but he just wouldn't have anything to do with it. Since the formula has changed he absolutely loves the food, but the most incredible thing is that we finally have a HAPPY healthy cat. We saw the change in Max in about 3 days and we haven't looked back, it's been incredible. We are sooooo grateful to Hill's. Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, Max thanks you as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by IbNancy Helps with GI probs/cat doesn't like wet food taste/expensive!
My cat gets extreme hairballs and had to have surgery to remove 4 which had turned into rocks in his intestine. Ever since (6 years ago now) he's had to be on both the wet and dry formulas of the i/d cat food.
2 problems - cat doesn't like the taste of the wet food after a day I find I have to leave it in the fridge or it really gets stinky.
Then I have to mix some of regular wet food with the i/d for him to eat it.
Then the other cat I have to give the i/d dry too or the sick cat gets into normal food then gets sick again. So I'm having to feed 2 cats the product.
Other major issues is the price. It's EXPENSIVE! and only available at the vets. Which means no competition and a higher price than if was the regular Science Diet food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OchoRios Really helped my cat
I have a 10 year old Exotic shorthair who had difficulties with extreme constipation. Our vet started him on this food since it is easy to digest. He hasn't had anymore digestive problems for a year now. I mix it with his dry food and he eats it right up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LindaK7 this product stopped my cat's vomiting issue and as finicky as she is she loves the taste!
I am very satisfied with Hill's Prescription diet I/d gastrointestinal health canned cat food. My cat has been vomiting after eating for years and no matter which cat food I tried, nothing changed. My vet recommended Hill's canned cat food. I was skeptical that my cat would eat it as she is so finicky about taste and texture. I was at wits end and tried it. My cat loved it and eats very morsel. The vomiting has finally ended. Chewy.com was very speedy getting my vet's prescription order and shipping a case out right away. It is cheaper buying through Chewy.com and best of all, having it delivered to my front door too! Thank you Chewy.com! I will continue to order from you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gab33 Product seems to be helping cat with digestive issues
Cat did not do well on over the counter dry cat food from science diet (sensitive stomach or petromalt brand). In attempt to stop vomiting we switched to I/D chicken wet cat food (not the stew mix which she rejected)and seems to have resolved most of the issues. not sure why it's just not sold in stores other than consumers may not buy any of the other wet food products.

My 17 yo cat cannot eat many foods now without throwing up. She has lost a lot of weight. This is a little cheaper alternative than my other option. She keeps it down and loves it too.

Ever since she's been on this ID Rx diet food she's hasn't gone to visit the Vet I've looked into when the Rx end and found out they sell it separately not the same but at least it's from Hills Diet food so her tummy won't get upset.

My 17 yo child has a very sensitive tum so the only thing she can keep down is Hill's Prescription Diet ID canned. Thank God she's eating! I just wish it was more affordable. However, the coupons do help, so please have more available! Thank you!

Our vet recommended this prescription wet food for 1 of our Abyssinian kitties when she was going through inflammation gastrointestinal symptoms a few years ago. Cinderella "Cinder" has been maintained on this diet without any further problems. Our boy Abyssinian kitty, Pumpkin, could not help himself and decided to be maintained on this diet as well.

My 15 year old cat has been vomiting on and off since she was young, however, the last year or so it has been almost weekly. She had an upset stomach for about a week (after a bout of vomiting and diarrhea) and didn't eat for almost 2 days.
Long story short, almost one month later she has been on the ID and she has not vomited once--and she loves the food! Vet said it was "bland" food so I am surprised she likes it, but she does. The food really made a difference and at her age it is important that she has food she can digest easily without getting sick so frequently. Would recommend!!
