Rated 5 out of 5
by pjarnagin I have a 14 year old cat with IBS.
I have tried many products to help but the prescription ID has worked the best. I was also giving her the wet food and she really liked it too. BUT the last couple of days I can hardly get her to eat at all, no more than a couple of bites and she won't touch the wet food. She has been having horrible diarrhea for months and it seemed to clear up for a while
, but now it back. The vet also has me giving her prednisone every day which she hates and I feel so bad forcing it down her every day. I don't know what else to do now. She is the light of my life and I am afraid I am going to lose her. Any suggestions are much appreciated.

i/d food texture of chicken in large can (5.5oz) granular, and not as acceptable to our cat as the chunky Chicken & Vegetable Stew in the i/d small can (2.9oz).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kitsak This product is a good quality prescriptive diet
We started mixing this in with the other wet food that had recently changed formulas for our cat who has had collitis issues. He seems to like it, as do the others so we have started mixing it in for all of them. The texture is more like ground meat and very wet. So far it seems to be helping the cat with issues . . . more time is needed. Science Diet Prescriptive is very high quality food. It's a bit more expensive but worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Terrie10 Worked for my Cassie.
My kitty is 9 years old and has had issues with frequent vomiting. After seeing her vet we decided to add canned food to her diet and brush more frequently. She now eats some dry and the canned and vomiting is less frequent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Owyn Highly efficient
We receive regular dog food deliveries. However, our daughter's cat was visiting. We needed special prescription food for him. Chewy took over - they contacted the vet for the prescription and overnight we received the delivery.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ScootersMom Good product, but limited variety in size & taste
My cat Scooter had developed issues with the wet food I was feeding him...he'd throw up almost immediately after eating and was losing weight. After a visit to the vet, then buying and feeding the i/d canned food to him...a miracle! No throwing up!
Scooter seemed to enjoy the taste, but now, nearly 5 months later, it's clear he's tired of the one flavor. Also, it's very difficult (really impossible) to get him to eat anything leftover from the previous day. He doesn't like it cold and even if I heat it up in the microwave or warm it by soaking the can in water, he picks at it and barely eats enough...I have to supplement with baby food. This means I barely get one meal out of each can and I should be able to get at least 2...a waste of food and money. :(
It would be AWESOME if smaller half cans of food were available, so every meal would be a fresh (not reheated) can. Additional/different flavors would also be appreciated.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mattie Pancreatitis. So glad he'll eat it!
My tabby has mild pancreatitis. I didn't like the ingredient list on this food, but within a day he was better, more energetic, curious again, and not throwing up anymore! So what do I know? He likes the dry food just as much. I can't believe it.
I just got his diagnosis last week. He already seems so much better, and the only thing we did was change food to I/D! The other cat wants it too. It's kinda hard to feed them different foods, but it's worth it. I highly recommend trying this. Apparently, feline pancreatitis is more common than I ever knew.

Rated 4 out of 5 by aes6246 Helps digestive issues.
cat loves likes it. it controls his digestive issue. way overpriced as far as I am concerned which is why someone dumped this cat on our road. To correct his digestive issue is far too expensive and why it needs to be prescription I have no clue. It doesn't contain drugs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gracie12 Like the can size
My cat has decided she does not like this flavor.
I would like to be able to purchase larger can of the chicken and stew flavor, which she likes.

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!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Edith8 My cat loves it!
When my vet gave my cat this food she said, "Your cat may not eat it. Most cats don't like it." My cat is VERY picky, but she loves I/D Digestive Care and is eating everything I put down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jester212 King Cat loves it...
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 4 out of 5 by Angiecat This food has helped my cat a lot
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KyleW So far, so good.
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!

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...

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 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.

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 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!

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.

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 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 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.
