Food sensitivities and intolerance are potentially serious problems that can result in sensitive or irritated skin, coat and ear conditions or even gastrointestinal upset. Dogs 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 dog suffers from adverse reaction to food, it is even more important to feed the right food. Hill's nutritionists and veterinarians developed Prescription Diet z/d clinical nutrition especially formulated to support your dog's skin and food sensitivities. In fact, z/d is clinically proven nutrition to help avoid adverse reactions to food.

Key Benefits

  • Helps improve digestion and stool quality with highly hydrolyzed protein
  • Helps eliminate food related causes of skin irritation and results in visible improvement to the skin and coat
  • Helps maintain a healthy skin barrier and enriched with essential fatty acid
  • Developed with a single carbohydrate source: Corn Starch
  • Clinically proven antioxidants are added for optimal health benefits

  • z/d canned food

    By on

    My dog was recently diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome and my Vet suggested this food. She's been on it for about a month now and loves it. At first I didn't want to give her canned food- only the hard kibble but she wouldn't eat the hard food unless I mixed in the soft .She still has some stomach girgling but she seems to be getting better. Before this the Vet had changed her food several times and at the end she just wouldn't eat anything. So, I was delighted when she gobbled down the z/d food.

  • Z/D Canned Food

    By on

    Foxy loves the food and I especially like the small cans the perfect size for her meals. She is small and I only give her a certain amount these cans work with the portion that she needs. I'm going to try her on the small bite dry mix along with the wet later. See if she can tolerate that as well. Thanks Chewy you make my baby happy and me too!

  • Great food and service!

    By on

    First off, I love the compassionate service we get from Chewy.com! My husband and I volunteer for 4 different rescues, and during home visits, we ALWAYS recommend chewy to applicants looking to adopt a dog or cat. We'd love to have some "business cards" to hand out with our other educational info during these home visits (we currently hand-write or print out the website address on the food hand-out). Secondly, your auto-ship program assures us we don't run out of food/treats! Last, but by no means least, our "kids" love Chewy! I'm convinced they recognize the Chewy box when it's delivered. :-)

  • My dog LOVES it!

    By on

    My dog Annie eats the dry kibble version of this food. Since she's not an enthusiastic eater, she would just leave her kibble pretty much all day and have her breakfast around 4:00 PM and then her dinner around 8:00 PM. I didn't like those hours for her, so I decided to add a HEAPING tablespoon of this wet food and chop it up into her dry food in the morning. She eats her entire breakfast immediately. Then, come suppertime at 6:00 PM, she's hungry and will eat her dry kibble immediately (no wet food added). She loves the addition of the wet food to her breakfast and it doesn't cost a fortune to use it the way I do. Works for her, works for me. :-)

  • My Dog Loves This Food

    By on

    I am happy with the delivery of the canned food. There was one glitch. The first can I opened was bad. Lots of liquid in the can. My dog turned up her nose at it. It didn't look like any the other cans I purchased from my vet. So I opened another can. That one was okay and so has every other can I have open ed and used from the order.

  • Dogs with Allergies

    By on

    My vet put my rat terrier on ZD dry food years ago due to his allergies and it worked wonders. Ozzy is an elder boy so he is getting fussy with what he eats. I decided I didn't want to change food but making the kibble moist took too much time. When I found the small can wet ZD I asked my vet to send a script to Chewy and they filled it! Much quicker than my vet since they had to order it & it took a full week + to get the order. Ozzy's happy so momma's happy.
