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 sensitive 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 reaction 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
  • Formulated with highly digestible carbohydrates and fats to help reduce gastrointestinal workload
  • Developed with increased omega 3 and 6 fatty acids to help nourish the skin and coat
  • No intact animal protein is included which helps avoid adverse reactions your cat might otherwise have
  • Added antioxidants to support a healthy immune system and skin barrier function

Special Note

Customer Reviews

Hill's Prescription Diet z/d Original Skin/Food Sensitivities Canned Cat Food is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 113.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful, but necessary My cat was recently diagnosed with IBD. I had to suddenly stop feeding him delicious somewhat "hypo" canned food and switch to z/d. This food is like gelatinous rubber! My poor cat hates it. I even tried microwaving it a few seconds to warm it up. Didn't help. With meds and hypo food his IBD is under control now. My cat will eat with reservation the Hill's Hypo-Treats. He doesn't like the z/d hard kibbles either. If I didn't have to give him a probiotic daily, I probably wouldn't feed him the canned z/d. Sometimes I have to hand feed it to him, since he is supposed to take his meds with food. I sure wish the research department at Hill's would come up with a more palatable formula, preferably more like a pate. I was told to have "tough love." I am, but it is hard when the other two cats can eat the good stuff and my IBD cat can't understand why he has to eat the z/d. The other two cats don't like the z/d either. Someone mentioned adding a little water to make a thinner consistency. I will try that next time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from "New & Improved" Formula? Our cat was on the ORIGINAL FORMULA for about a year. He loved it & came running when I opened the can. Then they "New & Improved" it. Bodie won't eat the new formula. In fact, he tries to cover it up, as if it is waste in the litter box. That's a pretty clear "NO" vote from our furry consumer. Please return to the original formula!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The New Improved Formula is not great My cat needs this for his allergies and it works. The new formula is like the paste kids used in kindergarten. It used to have a more pate texture but now its horrible. My cat tolerates it but I have to add water to thin the pastiness down. At this price I end having to throw a lot of it out as he wont eat all of it. I will be contacting Hills but Chewy is great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The "improved" formula is awful! My cat did really well on the original folmula, and she liked it a lot. She does not eat the "mproved " one. Even feral cats that I feed refuse to eat the "improveved" formula.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product needs work This food is not edible right out the can. You must mix it with water and ideally grind it in a grinder to make it palatable. Unfortunately it is the only hypoallergenic canned food available. I have to syringe it into my cat's mouth which he accepts . My cat was recently diagnosed with IBD and offering only dry food is not a reasonable option. However, mixing it with water does make it the consistency of a milk shake and easier to eat. Let's hope it helps his IBD issue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Re-formulated horrible My cats have been eating the original ZD for 7-9 years and loving it, however, the new and improved formula my cats will not eat. I have tried to incorporate the food slowly from original formula and many other integration methods. They will not eat it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The new z/d formulation is horrible. My cat has an autoimmune disease and was doing well on the old z/d formulation for over a year. He was switched to the new formulation without warning while being boarded because the old stock was used up. He came home with diarrhea and I noticed that the smell of the new formulation was horrible. Sort of like ammonia. I called Hill's right away and they calmly told me that there had been NO other reports of problems with the new formulation. They said only minor changes were made to the fiber and the antioxidants. They sent me 3 coupons. The new formulation smells and looks so different that my poor kitty doesn't want to eat it. We are now trying desperately to find another product that he can eat. Recently, I found out that the new z/d formulation is back ordered and I'm hoping they are changing it back to the old formulation. Please keep contacting Hill's!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cat loved eating the old version of Z/D. My 14 year old cat has loved eating the older original Z/D formula for years. That formula is what I was ask to review as that is what I purchased from Chewy. Hills now has a new IMPROVED FORMULA and the amount of some of the ingredients has changed. Example-iodized salt has moved up to the 10th ingredient listed in the new formula compared with being about the 20th ingredient in the old formula. Some ingredients, calcium sulfate, cysteine, l-lysine, manganese sulfate and potassium citrate have been added. Sodium Selenite has been removed. Chewy now shows the IMPROVED FORMULA on its web site. That can has red on the label... the old can didn't. To help your cat avoid any possible digestive upset, it is best to gradually add more of the new food to the old food, for about a week, before totally feeding the new food all by itself. I think Hills recommends this also. I'll review the new formula later.
