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

  • 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. I had high hopes for this one, as I had already tried another I am surprised by all the reviews that so many cats love this, as my 2 do not & they are not even picky eaters.

  • Great for my cat!

    By on

    My cat was covered in scabs/itchy spots when eating regular cat food. Vet said to try z/d and steroids but I started with just the z/d. She completely cleared up and we did not need to do steroids. Amazing part is she actually likes it and eats it. Years ago I tried z/d for my other cat and he did not like it so we had to do a bunch of other stuff. Chewy also had it for less than other places and it got to us in a couple of days.

  • 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.

  • Helped my cat

    By on

    This prescription food has helped my cat tremendously. Diarrhea has completely stopped and he even likes it. He has irritable bowel disease and nothing else worked. He mainly eats the wet food equivalent but the dry food is more of a treat for him.

  • 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!

  • My cat has a very sensitive digestive system

    By on

    My cat has a very sensitive digestive system. He has trouble keeping his food down. The Z/D Prescription Diet helps to abate his digestion and he doesn't throw up as much as he did. My cat is a ravenous yet a picky eater. He loves the flavor of the Z/D dry cat food & the canned food as well.

  • Nunu loves her food

    By on

    Our vet discovered that our cat had allergies and had us purchase this food. Our cat loves it and hasn't had any more skin issues since she strayed on it!

  • Worth the Price

    By on

    Our last cat we adopted has had so many health problems since the day we got her its a miracle she is now healthy. After finding and fixing (oral surgery) a horrid case of gingivitis along with the many other issues our poor tiny cat had, the vet recommended putting her and her siblings on this food. It has helped tremendously and even got rid of her skin rash that was causing issues. All three cats are healthy and have soft shiny coats. I won't by any other dry cat food except this.

  • Disappointed

    By on

    My cat was recently diagnosed with IBD. Her vet recommended that we slowly incorporate this food into her diet. Tonight, I mixed about half of the bag in with her Blue Buffalo dry food. To say she despises the new food is an understatement. She's picking around it and giving very apparent looks of disapproval. Our other cat isn't picky at all and is also refusing to eat it. I was hopeful that she wouldn't mind the new food after reading such positive reviews. Unfortunately, we now have a $55 bag of food going to waste and I have to try to find another brand to accommodate her condition.
