Description

Food sensitivity and intolerance are potentially serious problems that can result in sensitive or irritated skin, coat and ear conditions or even gastrointestinal upset. Cats that have a food sensitivity or intolerance, also called adverse reactions to food, typically experience an abnormal response to the protein in the food. If your cat suffers from adverse reactions to food, it is even more important to feed the right food. At Hill's, nutritionists and veterinarians have developed clinical nutrition especially formulated to help manage your cat's dietary sensitivity and help reduce the possibility of adverse reactions to food.

Key Benefits

  • Clinical nutrition especially formulated to help manage your cat's dietary sensitivity and help reduce the possibility of adverse reactions to food
  • Designed to improve digestion and stool quality with ingredients to help reduce gastrointestinal workload
  • Helps eliminate food related causes of skin irritation and a healthy skin barrier
  • Formulated with highly digestible proteins that minimize the chances of adverse reactions to food
  • Clinically proven antioxidants help maintain a healthy immune system and skin barrier function

  • Great for Food Sensitivies

    By on

    Our cat turned 3 years old and she has been having issues with throwing up all her life. At first I thought it was a food allergy so I tried all different brands, different proteins, grain free, etc... and for about a year she did really good on Nature's Instinct Rabbit but then started having issues. So I switched foods and she would do ok for about a week. It got to the point where we would only have 2/3 good days and then she would throw up and have diarrhea for 2/3 days and so forth. I took her to the vet and they did a full GI blood panel and everything came back normal. So she had us try the Z/D food and FINALLY she never has any issues anymore. She has been eating it for a month now Our cat turned 3 years old and she has been having issues with throwing up all her life.

She has been eating it for a month now and only threw up once but it was a hairball. I can tell she feels so much better. I looked at the ingredients of Hill's versus Royal Canin and Purina prescription foods and both of those use soy so I am very happy that Hill's uses chicken liver. My cat likes both wet & dry food so usually in the morning and evening I give her a little of the wet food and I leave out some dry to munch on. She is the type that only eats a little at a time so she does not overeat. At first, she would not eat the wet food, but I read some other reviews where they said to add water to it so I do that now and I mash it up really good so it is more of a pate then just the weird texture and she eats it fine now. She really likes the dry food the only complaint is the food is a little too small. She will be eating and one will get stuck in her teeth and she will use her paw to get it out. … more

  • Skin sensitivity diet is a no go

    By on

    My cat didn't like the wet food at all. He ate the dry food the first day but now he is refusing to eat that as well. I just recently purchased the Royal Canine skin sensitivity wet food and again gobbled it up the first day but now refuses to eat it.

  • Our cat doesn't like it

    By on

    Our cat doesnt' like this food at all. She has had some skin issues, so we hoped this would be at least a part of the solution, but not much luck. We have to mix it with her old food in order to get her to eat any of it.

  • My cats do not love it & it isn't helping the IBD

    By on

    I am surprised by all the reviews that so many cats love this, as my 2 do not & they are not even picky eaters. We had to switch to this due to one now being an IBD kitty. I have had to start feeding the non-IBD cat another product in a different location, because she won't eat the z/d. It makes it a bit difficult, in a busy household, as the IBD kitty will do anything to get ahold of the other product. All of that aside, the downside is the z/d (both wet and dry) isn't helping the IBD kitty's diarrhea. She takes an antibiotic (tylosin-given in gelcaps since it is so bitter), probiotics, and B12 (Cobalamin), but she still has diarrhea.

    While this particular diet may not turn out to be the best one the for my foster cat ~ we are trying to determine what will work best for his IBD ~ it is a pleasure dealing with Chewy.com. I ordered the prescription diet in the late afternoon & it arrived at my house the next morning.

  • Great product and the cats love it

    By on

    Both my cats and my dog eat this food and it is the best I have ever tried. They shed so much less. I only have to vacuum about twice a week verses twice a day before they started eating it.

  • Great dry food

    By on

    My cat was seriously ill a couple of years ago, my vet suggested this food and she is now healthy and her coat feels like silk! I was afraid I may have to put her down but she's made a remarkable recovery! She is now 15 years old and acts like a kitten!

  • My kitties love it

    By on

    My Tonkanese cats are both about 3 years old and one has skin and stomach sensitivities so they've both been on Z/D since the first year. It's expensive but worth it. The sensitive kitty no longer has runny bowel movements. Both cats coats are ridiculously shiny and beautiful.

  • This product is what my cat wants.

    By on

    Our cat, Gizmo, was diagnosed with a digestive disorder that requires a prescription for his food. We were originally getting the Z/D dry cat food from the vet but they did not always have it in stock. Chewy.com provides the dry cat food very conveniently and Gizmo really likes it!
