Feeding Instructions

Because iodine intake from other food sources (treats, another cats food, etc.) can compromise the effectiveness of low-iodine nutrition, its critical that you follow your veterinarians feeding instructions carefully and feed only y/d. Adjust feeding amounts as necessary to maintain optimal weight. If you are unsure, ask your veterinarian. For best results & safety practices: Gradually transition to your pets new food over a 7 day period. Exclusively feed the recommended Prescription Diet dry and/or canned food. Keep fresh water available at all times. Have your veterinarian monitor your pets condition.

Transition Instructions

A gradual transition to a new pet food is important to avoid digestive upset. To transition, mix your pet’s current food with the new food. Over 7 days, gradually decrease the amount of the current pet food while increasing the amount of new pet food. In some cases, your veterinarian may recommend no transition or a shorter transition time.

  • Very Satisfied

    By on

    I've been using the Thyroid care formula for my cat for a while and it's a great product. This was the first time I had ever used chewy.com and I can't say enough good things. I was in a bind because my local vet was out of the food and coming up on a holiday time, I was concerned I would run out of food. After placing my order with chewy.com, I followed up with a phone call and the person I dealt with was terrific. She assured me that she would process the request ASAP to ensure that the shipment would go out that same day so that I would get the food before I ran out. I'm extremely satisfied and will definitely use this site again.

  • Saved my cat’s life

    By on

    I thought for sure my cat was dying when I took her into the vet. She had lost a lot of weight and was down to 3.8 lbs! Blood tests showed hyperthyroidism. I thought my only option would be the daily pill which I had a horrible experience with in the past with a different cat. When my vet said there was a food that would manage her condition I was pretty excited. I bought a case of the wet food and also a bag of the dry. It’s been almost three weeks and my cat’s health has greatly improved thanks to this food! She’s gained weight, has her energy back, and is up to her old shenanigans. This food is literally a lifesaver. Since hyperthyroidism is so common in older cats, I hope that Hill’s will I thought for sure my cat was dying when I took her into the vet.

  • Works wonders!

    By on

    I have been using this cat food for our kitty that is 18 years old for about 6 months. Her fur has grown back full and shiny, and the light in her eyes is back. Energy is up and she seems back to normal. This food is expensive, but for our cat who has responded so well to the new diet, 100% worth it. Highly recommend trying this product if the vet recommends it.

  • Certainly helped my kitty.

    This has been a God Sent to my cat who has had thyroid issues for about 4 years now. She is only 7 years old so very young to have this issue. Anyway, she has been on constant medication for the whole 4 years until I came across this food and though I would give it a shot. I mixed it in with her normal food over a week and weaned her off the friskees and the medication. Her weight is usually around 6 pounds at the most. Less when she is not doing so well. She literally has been a walking skeleton unable to gain weight or body mass. Thankfully she has been on this and the dry thyroid food for about 14 days now. She has put on 8 oz, I know that doesn't sound like much but taken in context of how This has been a God Sent to my cat who has had thyroid issues for about 4 years now.

She has put on 8 oz, I know that doesn't sound like much but taken in context of how much her body weight has been for 4 years now that's a LOT! Now that I have weaned her off the normal food I just put some water with it to dilute it a bit and she will gobble it up. Not bad for a fussy cat I can tell you. I have to pick up the other cats food or she will eat that but over all big difference. He poo is not so runny, more energy, coat has improved and gaining weight. Could I ask for anything else... I don't think so. Worth every penny spent on it. … more

  • My Review of Y/D

    By on

    The service from Chewy has been excellent but the Hills company that makes the Y/D cat food need to listen to their customers asking for variety. On a positive note, the food has improved my cat's lab results and the price from Chewy is better than from the Vet and certainly convenient.

  • Kitty is on her way to good health

    After trying multiple ways to give pills and liquid medication to my elderly kitty...I discovered this food. She eats it up and now her thyroid is at a good level. No more stress trying to cram medication down her throat.

    Our cat has a thyroid problem and the local stores don't carry this food because it has to have a prescription. Making it to the vets isn't always easy. Thanks so much to chewy for making getting our cat's food so easy.

  • So LUCKY Felix likes this food

    By on

    Felix has been on this food for about 6 months and, fortunately, he seems to really like it. I, too, wish it came in smaller cans. He generally goes through 1 can daily (we do 3 meals a day), so when I take it out of the fridge I reheat it in my microwave (about 14 seconds) with 2 or 3 tablespoons of water. It makes it less thick and gets him to ingest more water in his diet. All in all, I'm very pleased, but I do wish there were a few other flavor varieties from which to choose. Chewy's service is excellent - always FAST ship and very courteous and helpful customer service agents. Only wish you'd have more special sales on this RX food.

  • Health of my cat

    By on

    A few months ago I noticed that my cat was losing to much weight and losing her hair from her mid section to her tail. It took me 2 months to come up with enough money to go to the vet. That is when I learned it was her thyroid. The cost at the vets for this cat food was 2.85 per can - so I went to Chewy. There was a real problem beginning with the vet not informing me that I needed a perscription to go to a pet store OR order from Chewy. Chewy representatives assisted me on this matter and got no where with me vet. Finally I went to another vet and they got me the perscription. It ended up costing me 25.00 for a week - but Chewy refunded the 25.00 off of my 56.00 order because of the delay A few months ago I noticed that my cat was losing to much weight and losing her hair from her mid section to her tail.

Having a limited income, the return of the 25.00 assisted me alot. They were great - I have told my friends what Chewy did to assist me. I hope they will consider Chewy for their pet needs as well. I see that my cat is now putting weight back on and some of her fur is coming back - but time will tell. At this point I only give 3 stars for the food. We will see. … more

  • Needs Some Work

    By on

    I am so happy that there is a food on the market to help my cat's hyperthyroidism since it is way easier to give her a food that helps than giving her medication to help correct her condition. However, I didn't give it 5 stars since my cat seems to be bored with it. She loved it at first, but each day she is looking at it and walking away a little bit more (She just finished 2 weeks of this food so it's still early in the game). There is so much food in one can that after opening, you have to refrigerate it and my kitty doesn't like it cold later in the day. I wish Hill's sold this canned food in the smaller size like that of Fancy Feast.

I also wish they made it in another flavor. The smell of it is a bit overwhelming for me as well. She LOVES the dry version of the Hill's Prescription YD though so that is what is saving her from losing weight! :-) … more
