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.

  • 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

  • Quick ship

    By on

    Due to recent changes in my dog's health, his diet has been changed to a prescriptive hypoallergenic diet. Chewy.com has been very helpful with this transition. Prices are lower than my vet can get the product for. They quickly contacted my vet for the RX and shipped super fast. It is very stressful to have a sick dog and this efficient system really is very helpful for both me and my dog.

    Bernie, our Shih Tzu, has serious food allergies which can result in bloody stools and ear inflamation. After trying a lot of different products, guided by vet recommendations, we found z/d canned dog food the only one that Bernie was able to eat without problems.

    My little dog has many allergies. He can not have anything but this food. Not even treats. He use to have terrible stomach pains till the vet said to use this only. He is doing great now. Chewy has the best price on this.

  • Arrived Damaged

    By on

    This is life saving food for my dog, and it's very convenient to be able to order it online and have it delivered instead of picking it up at the vet's office. However, this was my first time ordering and 3 of the 12 cans were dented. Two of them so severely I will not serve them to my dog because I worry bacteria could be growing inside. For the cost of this type of specialty food, I'm very disappointed that I will have to throw part of my purchase out. If this happens again on my next auto ship I will most likely be discontinuing.

  • Excellent Product

    By on

    My elderly Yorkies have developed several health issues, which include skin & allergies problems as well as digestive issues- They have always been fed a high quality dog food but nothing seemed to help until my vet recommended using Hills Prescription dog food. The itching has subsided and no stomach issues. Only negative is the cost- expensive! Chewy has great customer service- assisted with getting prescription faxed. Also have used Hills I/D formula for diarrhea symptoms-Both are excellent products.
