The product we use is a prescription due to tummy issues. It keeps her tummy from getting upset. Chewy was great and timely with the delivery. Will definitely use them again. Much cheaper than stores too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by POL1 Not so easily digestible
The food is supposed to help reduce vomiting. Unfortunately, my cat started throwing up much more frequently when we tried to switch to this food. When we stopped it, she went back to her weekly throw ups.

Rated 4 out of 5 by IbNancy Works great for cat with sensitive GI areas!
My long hair domestic cat...actually super long hair must have some Persian in him, had very bad furballs that he ended up having surgery to remove several that were hard as rocks and stuck in his GI tract. Afterwards the vet put him on Prescription I/D.
I didn't think this would be a forever deal!!
But anytime I take him off of it or mix it with other dry food, he ends up rushed back into the vet for at least an overnight stay while he gets re-hydrated and better.
After thousands of dollars in vet fees, he's permanently on Prescription i/d.
Only issue I have with the Prescription brand is that it is only sold at vets. Couldn't we have it at specialty pet food stores with a prescription or similar? I must have spend over $2K just on pet food in the last 6 to 8 years.
Now 14 years old, our "free kitten" now up to the $6K free cat! I think he's done pretty good for such a sick guy in the first place!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jkyle It was the only thing that worked.
Our two cats have always had sensitive stomachs. So periodic switching of foods was not uncommon if they became intolerant and we always sprung for the top shelf brands. But one friday our cat Y.T. couldn't keep anything he ate down. Being an outdoor cat, we assumed he'd eaten something that unsettled him and kept him indoors. He wasn't acting sick or skittish and was even playful so we decided to wait.
By Monday, he was showing little improvement and even looked to have lost weight. So we brought him in. The doctor, administered a shot to suppress his upset stomach and prescribed some food. After the shot wore off, he got sick again. Next, they changed to Prescription Diet i/d formula.
The difference was staggering. Not only did it get him over the hump of acute nausea, but he and our other cat absolutely loved the food. I wouldn't call either one a "sensitive" cat anymore. They've both put on healthy, muscle weight and their coats are thick and soft. No more dandruff.
The difference was so noticeable, it kind of made us feel like we'd been feeding them second rate food before.

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 desertappraiser Helped my cat!
I had tried every food on the market in addition to every natural remedy but nothing helped. My cat has a nervous stomach and would throw up his food immediately after eating - 2-3 times a day. This food has settled his stomach and made him young and playful again. It's a lifesaver!

Rated 4 out of 5 by VValrus Cat loves it and has helped with digestion
I'm not sure exactly what is wrong with my cat. He's about 1.5 years and has had issues with not having the most solid poop. After having him for almost his entire life, this food has finally helped him with his issues. Whatever is wrong with Hamish this food seems to help him, and he certainly seems to enjoy the taste. He still has issues from time to time but not nearly as bad as before (these issues might be caused by sneaking some of the non prescription food that his brother eats). As for the price, the bag I just got from Chewy is cheaper than what my vet charges me for the same amount.

I couldn't have been happier with not only the speedy shipment, but the offer chewy.com has for me to have my order scheduled to arrive every so often as I schedule the shipment! And since the food is a prescription diet, they contacted my veterinarian office for me to confirm my permission to purchase! Absolutely love the communication with this website. I couldn't be happier ordering anywhere else!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kate Dry food dilemma
My cat was prescribed Hill's i/d and started on the canned food. She like that so I took a chance and ordered the 4 lb. bag of dry food as she eats both. I was relieved she actually likes the dry food as well as she often turns her nose up at healthier dry foods. My other two cats like it too so I will feed the i/d to all the cats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katie Seems to Work
I adopted a cat from a shelter, not realizing just how terribly ill she was. She had every parasite, worm and bacteria known to man, was severely malnourished, so tiny and fragile...she weighed 4.5 lbs at 3 yrs old. After getting all the bugs cleared out, she was still unable to process food and had constant diarrhea with regular vomiting. In full panic mode, I took her back to the vet who suggested another prescription high fiber food, dry and wet, but my little one didn't like it and stopped eating. Given her condition, she HAD to eat. Another emergency vet visit, and this food was a last hope before specialists were required. It took a couple of weeks to get her intestines scrubbed out, but after a massive blow-out of awful black sludge, now my baby is not having accidents and has started to give me formed poo. She really likes the food so is gaining weight, her fur is softer and shinier, and she's running and playing! The big boy cat I adopted at the same time likes this food as well and is growing too. This food has been a miracle for us. I love the Chewy Autoship option too. Never running out of this food is very important around our house!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AlvinSimonTheoMom The only food cat would keep down.
We have three younger cats. After a year or so on Blue Buffalo one cat started regurgitating every meal. We have always delt with occasional regurgitating but suddenly one of the cats couldn't hold any food down. After a check with the vet and trying several over the counter foods we ended up on Science Diet i/d. We also started using slow feed bowls to make sure they were eating slower. It has been a huge improvement. Minimal regurgitating. So we will stick with it. I have set up an automatic shipment so I hope that saves us some money and trips to the vet since the pets stores can't sell it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MNDonna Cats don't like it
This food was prescribed for 2 of my 3 cats. The oldest will eat it if I hand-feed him but for some reason will not eat it on his own. He always ate his other food happily on his own, except one other time when he was on s/d food, then it was the same scenerio. The one cat that doesn't need this food (I was told by the vet I could feed this to her as well) won't touch it. The youngest will peck at the food half-heartedly. 3 cats and none of them like it. They do however love the canned version of this food. I was also told by the vet this food CANNOT be used long-term, only til the diarrhea stops then slowly transition back to other food. Yet the bag says precisely balanced to meet the special nutritional needs of kittens and cats......????

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jude11 Appears to not aggravate GI
I/D was initially recommended prior to my cat having chest wall resection surgery - and now that there are GI issues. Her weight has been stable throughout the year and what is important she will eat it - and keep eating it. While I know she would prefer other foods - it doesn't aggravate her GI tract - and when I stick with giving her I/D - she ends up with formed, healthy stool and no vomiting. I wish it had more fiber - not sure if that is possible. I also wish there was more than one variety - chicken - and maybe turkey or lamb - so she wouldn't get bored with it so easily. Overall, I am glad that I/D is out there - and really glad for the new seal on the bags!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jz6363 My cats love it, perhaps too much !
I have two cats, one of which started throwing up a lot on SD Sensative Stomach. The vet suggested trying I/d. Both cats like it a lot, so much so that overeating has become a slight issue. My one cat that was throwing up a lot has definitely had less issues since the switch to I/d. She is also getting steroid shots at the vet, so it is hard to say which is having the biggest impact, but I can say for sure that both cats love the I/d.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CynSF1 All the kitties love this product
I purchased the dry food because one of my cats is has got chronic IBD. It's fairly easy to see that he gets the I/D wet food, but there was no way to put out regular dry food for my other 4 kitties and not have him get into it. I know it's very expensive, but I had to buy a bag and use it for all my cats so that my Teddy Baer would not eat something that would upset his stomach. Teddy's IBD should settle down by the time the bag is gone so he can go back on a regular diet. All the kitties love this food. So, if you need to feed your cat this I/D diet, be assured that there will not be any going to waste. LOL!

Thanks Chewy, for getting the prescription issue with my vet resolved and then timely sending my order. Your price was considerably lower than what I would have been charged elsewhere.
Happily my cats digestive issues seem to be clearing away and she is much more comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jennie23 Huge affect on my cat's digestive system and temperment!
I highly recommend this product as well as the accompanying wet canned food and treats. My kitten was having tummy aches and gas after eating, resulting in loose bowel movements over extended period of time. She was also grumpy, didn't want to be held and was biting us ... not vicious, just irritable and purred at same time. After 2 doctors said she was having behavorial problems which were not related and recommended an internal medicine doctor and tests including blood, endoscopy, colonscopy and x-ray, I asked the last dr. about trying a better pet food. Twice, I had not been successful in changing her food, but seemed to me that her problems came from what she was eating. The dr gave me Hills Prescription id which my cat loved immediately. And adored the wet food as well as the treats. After 3 days, her sweet disposition returned ... and after 2 weeks, her bowel movements were completely normal! It has been over 2 months and all is well! The biting has stopped, she loves being held again, and no more loose bowels. I highly recommend trying this food before submitting a cat to upsetting, invasive and expensive tests without exploring the possibility of food intolerance or or other diet concern. Turns out my kitty is intolerant of wheat!

by GUSMaineCoon Gus, Maine Coon Loves Chewy.com!
If you have a Maine Coon or other cat with possible constipation and want to avoid Megacolon, then get your vet to order this cat food. We tried High Fiber but turned out it was not the best choice. After some consultation (Vet to Vet) they recommended Hill's Prescription Diet i/d Feline Gastrointestinal Health Dry Cat Food. Food is "low residue" and now our cat, Gus, does not strain. Has regular BM's. It was the answer to our concerns. We couldn't get the large bag at local store so looked on-line. Chewy.com had best price and will deliver free at scheduled intervals. Can't ask for better than that! I even sent Chewy a picture of Gus (in the Chewy box) after we received our 1st delivery. And another of him eating the food. he is 25 lbs! GUS Loves Chewy.com!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4thjet works wonderfully on my cats' sensitive stomach
My extremely long haired cat ended up having surgery to remove 3/4 large hard hairballs in his intestinal tract that were bigger than $1 coins and hard as rocks. He couldn't even keep water down.
After the surgery the vet recommended Prescription I/D as his regular food. It works wonderfully and even when he gets large hairballs he's able to bring them up and they don't get stuck inside him.
I've tried to take him off several times and each time he's ended up back at the vet's usually at least overnight.
We stick with the food and he's fine.
My other short haired cat likes the flavour too!
Only downside is it is expensive and I wish the price would come down some as it's hard on a fixed income to buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Garfield Needs it but does not like it
My cat has a sensitive stomach ever since I found him as a kitten under my neighbors porch. I tried feeding him regular cat food but he kept throwing up. I took him to the vet and was given a prescription for Hill's® Prescription Diet® i/d® Feline Gastrointestinal Health. He does not throw up any more but he does not like the taste. I have to mix the Hill's® Prescription Diet® i/d® Feline Gastrointestinal Health with other Hill's dry or wet cat food so that he will eat the Hill's® Prescription Diet® i/d® Feline Gastrointestinal Health. I wish Hill's would change the formula of Hill's® Prescription Diet® i/d® Feline Gastrointestinal Health so that cats would like the taste.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gab33 Perfect choice
Have been using a number of over the counter wet and dry cat foods (Science diet sensitive stomach-dry) and various brands of wet all of which did not help cat with routine vomiting. Hills I/D in both wet (chicken) and dry cat food has certainly curtailed the vomiting significantly and therefore less cleaning for us!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marleycommabobb Hey Marley, he likes it!
My Marley was throwing up every so often on Science Diet. I had other cats do extremely well on science diet. While he loved Science Diet his tummy couldn't handle all the flavors. We tried other brands and finally took him to the vet. Since I have a preference to the Hill's brand the vet wrote him an RX for i/d dry food. HE LOVES IT! WE LOVE IT! No more vomit! Marley is now happy and healthy. The best part is...if you look every so often Hill's will give out coupons. Without the coupon the price is fair! We can get 64 feedings out of a 4 lb bag! If your kitty has an upset tummy tell your vet this is the food for her/him! Hill Prescription Diet ROCKS!
