Rated 5 out of 5 by animallover Both cats love it, & cat w/ with intestinal prob's is better
I have two VERY finicky Burmese cats, one of whom has thickened intestinal walls indicating inflammatory bowel disease, which is very serious. It caused him to get increasingly sick, with diarrhea, frequent vomiting, weight loss, and his unhappiness indicated discomfort, too. The most common treatment for the condition is to feed the cat a prescription food such as this which has proteins that are already broken down into smaller bits that don't cause allergic reactions - and that's what Hill's z/d food is. Much to my surprise, my sick cat accepted this food very readily (likes it even better than his old kibble), and my second cat refused her old food in favor of this, so now it's the only food they eat. Too bad it's expensive compared to regular kibble, but it's still cheaper than the vet bills, and the sick cat is so much better! Both cats are at perfect weights, have shiny sleek coats and seem healthy & happy on this food, so I'm a big fan!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lauren This product was great and then they changed the formula...
I have been purchasing this food for almost an entire year after my senior cat was diagnosed with pancriatitis and IBD. He was doing extremely well on this food and then recently Hill's changed the formulation of it. He has been vomiting every couple of days since using the new bag of food with the new formulation. I'm not sure what Hill's changed but I will be purchasing a new brand of food tomorrow. Very disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sunshine3215 Food has STRONG SMELL, might offend CAT
I purchased this dry food because my cat has food allergies. This food did address those issues and the itching stopped within (3) days of starting to only give him this food mixed with Royal Canin "calm". Calm was his original dry food and I thought well maybe I'll try this one since it specifically addresses the food allergies. The Calm was given by my vet for another reason but it helped the scratching/itching.
Well, this food does address allergies but it has a SUPER STRONG SCENT. My cat did not like the scent, he ate is the first day, then after that...he would not eat it. I even mixed it with calm and he would eat all the "calm" and leave this food. I would not recommend buying a 8 lb bag, Calm has no smell at all at least not one I can smell. I'm sure the cat smell's something. This food works so don't misunderstand but the smell is very strong.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1boy2cats1dog recommended by vet
my cat has been having allergic reactions with sneezing and nasal congestion that leads to sinus infections and includes a strange build up along his lower mouth lip area.
First we stopped all plastic and stainless steel bowls feeders, etc, on vet recommendation. No change.
Then vet recommended we use this food because it was probably something in his food. I was feeding expensive Natural Balance food prior.
This seems to definitely help. I think he is accepting of this food and my other cat in the house has also changed easily since they eat out of each other's bowls.
Thanks to Chewy, I am able to get this food at a much better price then my vet or amazon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by solarspirit Senior cat likes it.
I adopted a senior abysinnian who had only been fed Purina One kibbles all her life. She was barely eating any of it the first few days I had her and when she did eat, she would barf it up. I took her to the vet to make sure she was healthy and her labs all came back great for an 11 1/2 year old. I had suspected an allergic reaction to something in the food and tried feeding her a grain free kibble, but she didnt take to it. The vet suggested the Hills z/d and gave me a sample. In the past, I was not impressed by Hills or Science Diet, but as long as Phoebe is eating, I am happy. I have added canned food to her diet now as well and she is putting the weight she lost back on and is a happy cat. No more vomiting. !!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Soolz A good choice for my persian
I had to switch my persian to this diet because he was on the Royal Canine hypoallergenic diet earlier but he suddenly decided to stop liking it. I transitioned it in with the old diet and he eventually loved it. I only gave it 4 stars because the shape of the food is not Persian friendly. Persians normally don't chew their food and like to just swallow it so although he likes the taste, he has a hard time keeping it in his mouth. I wish the company would consider making a persian friendly version. The upside is that there is a wet version. Overall, I'm happy with the new diet. **I would also like to point out that I had already purchased a Royal Canine hypoallergenic dry food bag for my cat that I hadn't opened yet. Since my cat stopped eating that one completely, I ordered this diet for him prescribed by his Vet. Customer support at Chewy.com was kind enough to give me a full refund on the old unopened bag. 5 stars on customer service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by InkQuil Great product. Keeps your feline in good health.
Great company will continue to purchase items. Have been ready and willing to help out in ever occasion. As in if you need prescription. To the company calling the Dr. To get any information to help with the situation. Products come in mail good and the product they show is pretty much what you receive. My friend told me about this site n i recommended to the other people as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cherie Excellent prescription diet for cats
I have 2 cats with Pancreatitis that can be difficult to control, but the Z/D food has made such a huge difference! They love the taste and have significantly improved inside and out. My third cat is healthy, but I feed her this diet as well. Even her coat has gotten softer and brighter. Chewy.com has the lowest price too. Remember, the higher quality food less food your cat will eat. I look at it this way, paying a little more for high-quality food is less expensive than multiple vet bills.
