Rated 5 out of 5 by Clydesdale helps persistent cat diarrhea caused by parasite
This high fiber food was prescribed by a specialist vet to treat persistent diarrhea in 2 1/2 year old cat who had been treated for parasite Tritrichomonis. Nasty parasite that causes cat to leak poop, which went on for four months (since we got her from breeder, where she got the parasite). Leaking continued even after all tests were negative after 10 days of one antibiotic, and after additional five weeks of another antibiotic. Don't know whether the leaking would have finally stopped on its own or whether this food contributed to stopping. We will stick with this food for a while to avoid regressing. We also sprinkle probiotic powder Purina ProPlan FortiFlora on the food, prescribed by another vet (but available w/o prescription). Cat does NOT have a weight problem, so we need to monitor to make sure she doesn't lose weight on this lower calorie food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skronek Hmmm, tasty
Vet subscribed Hill's w/d for my chubby cat whos colon appeares to be enlarging and had a backup up stuff waiting to get out. Brutus loves this food and it appears he is struggling much less to defecate.

My cat LOVES this food, he eats this and the canned w/d exclusively and has not put on or lost any significant weight. He will continue on this unless the vet recommends he be switched to something else.

by roseyoc Ollie, my overweight cat, loves this food.
When your cat is diagnosed as overweight and needs to lose a few pounds, and he loves to eat, it is a disturbing situation. Fortunately, I tried this food and he loves it and has lost about three pounds. Unfortunately, I was a little late getting him on a regimen of weight loss and due to high blood pressure caused by the overweight condition, he has lost some of his eyesight. But he gets along quite well and we stick to his wd diet to avoid any further issues. Please, if you have an overweight pet get to your vet and get a script for weight control diet. They will adapt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mz31 helped with my cat's antibiotics-induced digestive issues
i'm not crazy about the high price or the ingredients (rice, corn, wheat), but was willing to try anything after post-surgical antibiotics destroyed my cat's gut -- for many weeks after, no matter what other meds we tried or expensive probiotics i mixed with his food, my poor guy still had loose stools and a diminished appetite. but within one day (!) of mixing the w/d with his regular food (taste of the wild), the appearance of his stools dramatically improved. (i've been mixing the dry w/d with dry totw in the morning and the wet w/d with wet totw at night.) he's now been eating a mix of w/d and totw for a few days and honestly seems to be doing great. my hope is that the food is giving his gut an opportunity to heal and we'll eventually be able to wean him off it and return to a pure totw diet, but in the meantime i have to give this stuff full credit for helping him feel (and poop!) better. so relieved. (the only issue we've had is that my cat simply can't/won't eat the full volume of food recommended for weight maintenance because it's a larger amount compared to other brands, so i'm keeping an eye on things and hoping he doesn't lose any weight as a result.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by acleggirl Stopped bloody stools
My Bengal kitten had bloody stools for months. After switching his food from very expensive to organic food and several vet visits later, this food was prescribed due to possible colitis. After only a week, I could not believe that his stools were no longer bloody; I always understood gluten, corn, and rice to irritate the intestines, so I am baffled.
I am also a bit concerned that kitty demands this food a bit too often. He becomes destructive if I do not feed it to him when he wants it. Regardless, the food worked as prescribed, so I'll give it 5 stars.
