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

Special Note

Hill's is going through a packaging change: Original was formerly Ultra; same great formula, just a new name!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Dog Loves This Food 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenience and Price The convenience of having my senior dogs food delivered to my door was wonderful. He has been on the same prescription diet for several years so the accumulated cost has been appreciable. The savings with 'chewy' is very much appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my dog's life ! This food was prescribed after my very sick dog was diagnosed with IBD. After he started eating it a year ago he improved rapidly and has been healthy ever since. He eats the dry and wet food and I swear by it !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from z/d is a great product for dogs with allergies Had my dog on prescription i/d but Hills changed the formula and now I can't get him to eat it at all. Although they did change z/d to some degree, still seems the same consistency and my dog eats it right up which makes me happy as he doesn't eat much. Wish it wasn't so expensive though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my vet suggested this product and I am sad because you don't offer the 5oz cans I have a small Maltese and he does eat that much per day and the 15oz can are to big and some time I end up discarding the food in the can away.... please can you get the 5oz can in stock...also with my age and health reasons the small can are easier for me to handle. Thank you for Chewy.com it ready helps those of us that can't drive any more

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ella's story Our 8 year old Silky terrier had been diagnosed in March 2016 with inflammatory bowel disease. Since then she has been eating the ZD canned food. Thankfully, it has helped stabilize her disease as she continues to heal. Highly recommend this product :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Z/D ULTRA has saved my dog! My 11 year old Shih Tzu, Su Zi, was diagnosed with IBS and had suffered severe attacks of colitis and allergies. She is NOT a commercial dog food fan at all, so I have home cooked for her for 10 years. Well - when she was rx'd the z/d by our Vet I warned him - she WON'T eat it!!! Boy was I wrong. She eats it and begs for more. And not a lick of colitis since. Chewy.com has competitive prices, it is auto shipped and delivered to my door, and I don't have to drive all the way to the Vet's office and pay his high price. Chewy.com rules!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Probably medically fine, but my dog doesn't like the taste My dog has significant food allergies, and the dry Z/D works well with her issues. Since she gets bored of just the dry, and adding a topper of another brand has been a digestive problem, I tried the canned Z/D. The consistency is solid and firm, but not easy to smash, and unfortunately my dog didn't like it from day 1. :( I would buy one can first if possible.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Food has odd consistency I'd gotten this food from vet and the pet store a few times and decided to try to save money and time by getting it online. I chose Chewy because it had the best price. Normally this food has the consistency of pate or potted meat--moist but you can still slice it into smaller chunks. The first can I opened had a consistency that seemed drier. It fell apart in bits as I scooped it out. The second can was fine. The third can was back to gritty again. I have a dozen of them and my dog seems to be ok with the food, but I probably will try another company for the next batch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food My dog is a mess (poor guy!), anyway he's allergic to grains and proteins. This food, both the wet and dry varieties, have worked wonders with him. His bowl movements are no longer "water", but are GREAT (if you'll pardon my exuberance here). I just cannot believe the difference between what he was before this food and now. He was on a five star food before the change to Z/D, but it was an extremely high protein food and it just didn't work out with him. This food has worked wonders.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from this product has changed My Bischone has been eating Z/D hard and soft food for several years that we get from our vet. We were told the product can has changed however, the texture of the meat has become looking like a soupy mix. Sku 052742701806 What's the alternative to this product. It is more difficult to give her meds with this soupy food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product works great After years of prednisone not working we finally switched vets and were immediately introduced to this product. Eleven year old pet never looked so good - - and he doesn't stink!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pup likes this Rx diet My dog is on this diet for IBD and he seems to prefer it out of the limited options available to him. It is a sticky homogeneous texture and it's good for hiding pills in it. It seems to be suiting his digestive needs while being exciting enough for him to want to eat it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solved the GI problems We switched to a combined diet of the wet food and dry kibble using the Hill's prescription Z/D after our Golden came down with pancreatitis and additional undiagnosed illness the vets believed was related to the pancreatitis. Our pet couldn't keep any food down and was rapidly losing weight, was lethargic and we were genuinely concerned that he wasn't going to make it to his 4th birthday. It's been over 2 weeks since we switched to the hydrolyzed food and he hasn't had a vomiting episode since. He's done a complete 180 degree turn and is slowly putting back the weight he's lost. He's energetic, his eyes are clear and he's just like his former self. We believe this dog food saved his life. We're slowly reducing the amount of the wet dog food and introducing more kibble to his diet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Z/D is the only one he will continue to eat! My male Shih Tzu has been quite particular about his food since diagnosed with IBD and severe skin allergies a couple of years ago. We have purchased every appropriate prescriptive food on the market and he would tire of it after only a few days and then refuse to eat any more. Finally when he initially tried Z/D he ate ravenously and still craves it - we even use it for his treats! He has finally gained back his weight and runs around like a puppy - not bad for a 14-year old dog! He is currently on case 4. Thank you Hills Z/D!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped my dog with his intestinal issues The Hills ZD was recommended by a specialist for our Wheaton mix with frequent bouts of bloody diarrhea and vomiting . He has finally stabilized on this diet and is off any other foods. I wish they offered different flavors , since he seems to get tired of the same thing. I mix the dry and wet canned food and he loves it. The side benefit is his skin and coat is fuller and shinier .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very clear label. Was very pleased with the fast service. They contacted my vet immediately, and a day or so later the product was delivered. I have all intention of ordering from your company from now on, and would surely recommend you to others. One of the office girls where I take my dog had told me about you, and that is why I ordered my dogs food from Chewy.Com. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has eliminated dog's gastrointestinal problem First vet did extensive testing and medication for chronic diarrhea, no results. Second vet recommended this food and it has significantly taken care of the problem in two days and got much better within 5 days. Not helping so much with dermatitis, but that may take longer to see results. Only feeding this food for meals and treats.
