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 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

Hill's Prescription Diets require a veterinary prescription. This product will not be shipped until a copy of a valid prescription authorization is faxed to 1-800-619-7973 or e-mailed to rx@chewy.com.

  • Great for Food Sensitivities

    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

  • She eats it, I believe because it is what is offered

    By on

    My cat has been diagnosed with IBD, though she now has hyperthyroidism and there is a thought that may be the main problem for her digestive problems. She is already on Hill's z/d kibble, but she craves wet food, so I ordered this - even though many reviews are negative due to consistency, smell, etc. She did not like it at first, but she came around - I believe it is because she is consistently starving (due to the hyperthyroidism) and eats every bite. It does smell terrible and she will only eat it at room temperature, so I microwave it on very low power. Alas, she still has terrible diarrhea & vomiting, so it is not helping even with all of her vet prescribed medications.

  • Rubbery Smelly Food

    By on

    Ordered two cases of z/d from chewy and fed my cat one serving. It's exactly what other reviewers are saying that it's like jello or gelatinous brown rubber. The can I opened had all liquid brown muddy consistently underneath the rubbery stuff on the top. I called Hills and gave them the lot code and expiration date and was told I got a really, really fresh case from chewy and the food didn't have a chance to firm up or set yet. That was such a lame excuse. So this past Tuesday I bought a case of z/d from my vet. The vet opened a can in front of me and took a wooden depressor stick and sliced through the z/d. It was a lighter brown in color than the can I got from chewy and solid all the way Ordered two cases of z/d from chewy and fed my cat one serving.

It was a lighter brown in color than the can I got from chewy and solid all the way through. I bought the case and fed my cat this z/d over a 4 1/2 day period and he hated it but would eat it because he was hungry but 2-3 cans were wasted as he wouldn't eat what was on his plate and if the food has water added like I do to get water into him it'll turn to liquid after awhile on the plate. My cat is allergic to chicken and I was told by Hills that since this is hydrolyzed chicken liver his body will not recognize it as chicken and he won't get an allergic response. The Hills representative explained the chicken liver is broken down into single strand amino acids. This food is highly processed. I tried mashing it up and adding water and warming it up. I tried adding water to make it liquidy for him to lick it up. I even tried it right out of the can. It's sticky, rubbery, smelly, unpalatable. On top of all this Hills was wrong about it not causing an allergic response. After two days of eating this on the third and fourth days my cat began scratching his neck more and more from the chicken liver. I returned the case to the vet as I called Hills and they said my vet will refund the case and they said my vet can throw the remaining cans away or they can re-sell the cans as single cans or they can return the cans to Hills. They said it doesn't matter. They said Hills will refund my vet's office for the whole case. … more

  • Pricey but needed.

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    My female was passing out from food allergies. The vet said to try this along with allergy free dry. The consistency is bouncy. She does like it but I have to dip butter knife in a cup of heated water for it to slice up without sticking. Does not mash well.

  • Prescription Food - but cat won't eat it

    By on

    This food was prescribed for my cat who had been throwing up alot and the vet thought it might be easier on her digestive system. Unfortunately my cat won't go near it, even when only a tiny bit is mixed with her regular food. I tried for over a month and we are no nearer to acceptance. The only result is that I ended up dumping a lot of food.

  • Awful, but necessary

    By on

    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 My cat was recently diagnosed with IBD.

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. … more

  • Cat loves it!

    By on

    I was hesitate to try because of the cost and the possibility that my cat wouldn't eat it. But she loves the wet and the dry z/d food. And her skin allergies are finally clearing up!

  • Helped him live longer

    By on

    My cat, Harley, was normally very picky about his wet food. He loved shredded or minced, so after he got diagnosed with IBD and/or lymphoma, it took him a bit to warm up to this food. He did take to it after a while and he ended up loving it, and it helped him live a longer life. The consistency of this food may not be the best, but this is better than no alternative!

  • This product has made me feel like a new cat !

    By on

    I was put on hills z/d because I had lost a lot of weight and was very sick. My intestine and one kidney were inflamed. Z/d and some medications have made me a new cat. I have gained two pounds and can now check out all the things I was to tired to try to get into. Mom calls me a brat again. The flavor is ok and it is oh so smooth it doesn't hurt going in or out. I prefer tuna but this has made me feel better.

  • Cat with allergies

    By on

    This food is liked by my very picky cat. She has developed skin allergies that I do not have the money to take her to a specialist to find out exactly what is causing the allergy. So this is the next best thing. So far she like the flavor.
