Rated 5 out of 5 by catwoman Finally!!! The scratching has stopped!
I have a Maine Coon cat who has been having issues with allergies since I adopted her a year and a half ago. She was scratching constantly and I spent months taking her back and forth to the vet. Despite all of our best efforts, and trying every food on the market, we could not get to the root of what was making her scratch. After months of anti-biotics to treat the sore areas and injections to stop the scratching, we were still nowhere in terms of alleviating her symptoms without drugs or figuring out what was causing them. Finally, I put her on z/d formula and within about three days the scratching began to decrease significantly. Now, a couple of weeks later, she has stopped scratching almost completely, maybe a scratch now and then, and is a much happier cat...No meds, no shots, no stressful visits back and forth to the vet. I still do not know the root of the problem, but it appears I have found a pretty awesome way to manage her symptoms and give her a much better quality of life.

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.

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.

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!

I have 2 Hairless Sphynx Cats. My youngest, Simone, developed a rash that we could not get rid of. We tried all types of raw foods and she still was a bumpy mess. My veterinarian recommended this brand, and she has been fine ever since. I am glad we can use Chewy for getting our food delivered right to our door. They have the best customer service of any company that I have ever dealt with!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jenna My 18 year old cat loves these...he thinks they are treats!
My 18 year old needs to be on a special diet. I had him on the canned zd for awhile but he stopped eating them. Glad he loves the crunchies!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EJMP Our cat hasn't been sick since she started this food
We had sort of resigned to the fact that our cat must just be getting older and having new symptoms that we would have to just accept. She had been throwing up more and more, losing weight, and acting sickly for over a year. Our vet recently recommended trying this food.....hydrolyzed protein for our sensitive cat. (Knock wood) She hasn't been sick again since she started eating this food....not once. It's only been 10 days, but this is a huge change. We're hopeful she will have lasting comfort from this specially formulated food.E

Love the product but am dismayed by how many emails Chewy sends.
