Rated 5 out of 5 by ChristieC FINALLY NO BITING NOR ITCHING!!
My shih-tzu, Sookie, 5.5 years developed severe itching and biting over the last year. Her skin became very irritated and flakey. I tried special baths and shampoos. She began smelling like she lived outside all the time-although I was bathing her. I initially thought she got a bad episode of "fleas" that started it, but it just never stopped. Finally, i took her to the vet. He prescribed this after giving her some steroids to wean off of and a special bath than would numb her scratched, raw areas. THIS IS THE BEST DOG FOOD! She is always so picky and thought she would never eat this. It's consistancy is that of thick refried bean mash. SHe even eats the dry food (I only wish it were the tiny bites like the Science Diet). I also make her treats with it. I just slice it up into chunks and put it in the oven on 305 for about 20 min. SHE LOVES THEM! Thanks so much for the great food! It is expensive, but Ive made sacrifices so she doesnt have to be miserable! I just wish there were some coupons!! Thanks again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Calico This product does what it is designed to do.
Although I admit that my dog doesn't really care for this product, it fulfills its designed purpose. While on this prescription food, my dog no longer chews constantly on her paws so they have healed and she is much happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ellymu 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 Snikkers 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 Martha z/d canned dog food
This dog food was recommended by our vet for a dog (Boxer) with colitis. The dog food together with medication helped our dog to stop her constant diarrhea. She will be eating this food and nothing else for six weeks. So far it's working well, and I can recommend it if your dog is having a similar problem. After six weeks I will introduce other foods one by one hoping to isolate what she can and cannot eat.

Our baby suffers from intestinal Lymphangiectasia and this wet good is a great complement to her dry food- plus she loves the taste of it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dixiemama This product is the only food that my rescue collie can tolerate.
Before Chewy.com, we had to look all over our entire area to purchase enough food for our collie to last a week. Chewy has taken all of the pressure off. What a relief. And when I call customer service, I get a live person right away, who actually cares. We will be with Chewy.com forever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Leslie Great for allergies
We broke down and had my dog allergy tested a couple of years ago. It turned out she was allergic to five ingredients in her previous food. We put her on ZD and many of her problems were eliminated. Now we just have to worry about outdoor allergies.
This was our first order with Chewy. Very impressed. Less expensive than getting the food from the vet.

if my dog eats it, it's okay with us. She doesn't scratch like she used to, and is looking a lot better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joeybi This product is an excellent food source for dogs with environmental and skin allergies. It is also a great product for dogs with digestion problems.
I have tried at least 20 different dog foods for my dog. Each one came with side effects. Countless dollars had been spent on various expensive dog foods over the years that claimed to prevent digestion issues, skin issues, etc. My veterinarian gave me samples of the Hill's Prescription Diet zd dog food to try. I was amazed! Prior to trying this brand, my dog was constantly at the vets for skin irritations and staph infections on his skin. Before, he constantly was chewing his paws and anywhere else he could reach to obtain relief from constant itching. He also suffered from digestion issues. He would get hiccups, bloated belly and bowel problems. With in a week of using this product, the rashes went away and the paw chewing had subsided. He has had no more hiccups, bloating and has regular, normal bowel movements. Also, he likes the flavor. One can is enough for three meals, for he is a small breed. So, it is actually cheaper than all the other foods we have tried. He has even lost weight and is more energetic. I only wish that Hill's would manufacture the dry dog food in the zd in tiny bites for small breed dogs as mine. They do have it in a small size however, I purchased it for my dog and he would not eat it because the morsels were still to large for his tiny mouth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lesh No More Diarrhea
Buddy started having unexplained diarrhea that lasted almost 6 months without any relief. Our vet had us try many different things and many tests were done. it was finally determined that he most likely had a food allergy so he was prescribed a Z/D diet (can & dry). His diarrhea stopped immediately and hasn't returned in 2 years.
Buddy was a very picky eater before (maybe the other food made his tummy hurt?), but has never once passed up a Z/D meal. He gobbles up this food like it's a steak dinner.
Since he is on such a strict diet it was hard finding a treat that wouldn't mess up his stomach. We decided to try and bake the Z/D canned food and had great results. We just slice up the can food and bake at 350 on each side for 16 minutes. The smell is terrible, but these make really great treats for a dog with a sensitive stomach. Our other dogs love them as treats too!

Food is fantastic for my dog's health but over the past six months the price on here keeps climbing. It's almost no savings compared to my vet anymore.

This is not what I was picturing a canned food to be but it works great- and it is a nice treat for our dog since she has terrible allergies and can't have special treats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rpg1SEA 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 ND1234 She says it's good!
My Peanut was prescribed this food as she had not been doing well. I highly doubted that she would eat it, as I had tried numerous different things to no avail. Well, getting it home and giving it to her...SUCCESS! she absolutely loves it. Had never been around pate, it had a weird consistency. But hey, if she eats it I don't care how it looks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zaphed Our dog loves this food...
Because of some allergies and other food sensitivities our vet prescribed Z/D. We had really resisted moving to "wet" food because of the inconvenience and mess compared to dry however the dog absolutely loves it, so we just couldn't bring ourselves to move back to dry.
The only two issues I know of with this dog food are that (1) it doesn't smell great and (2) it is expensive as compared to other dog food no matter where you buy it.
One thing to think about when setting up auto delivery is the number of cans you need vs. the default ship schedule. After I setup auto delivery, I contacted customer service and they were good enough to modify the auto ship schedule so that I won't run "over" building up a surplus of cans over time, and also wont run short so that we run out of cans before the next shipment arrives. Thanks Chewy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by rond Our dog's life has changed
Our poodle now eats prescribed Hill's z/d, and she now eats twice-a-day. In the past she might have eatten twice but usually once. Buying the canned dog food from Chewy has made it so easy. The two cases arrive as part of a standard order and the cost is a bit less than most other suppliers, including the vet's office. Good food and a good price delivered on a regular schedule, it's a dog's life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by zobo This has really helped Zoey with her allegies to food
MY dog had issues and the vet, suggested this food along with medicine. She has got better and was switched to dd. She has really improved and the food was great for her, but I was feeding 3to 4 cans a day for 3 months. She is a lab and requires a lot of food. It is quite expensive for a long term treatment . I would like to keep her on it but when she gets better I will have to switch .I am buying 2 cases a week for her and that is expensive , yes this is helping and if my income was unlimited I wouldn't have a problem with the price. I did print the coupons from the website but that is a one time thing. Other than being expensive for long term care I see that the food really is helping and she likes it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shay Game changer for my hound
My sweet hound mix has always struggled with awful digestive issues. Not to be too graphic, but before switching to his food, she'd never once had a totally firm stool and often had chronic diarrhea. After 2 years of trying meds and all kinds of diets, I got a referral for her to see specialists at the Univ of GA vet school. It turns out she has protein allergies. This food has been the miracle cure. She loves it - eats it right up. So thankful to have found this via the awesome doctors at the UGA vet school.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Penny Chewy ROCKS! Love the price & delivery time
This was our first time trying Chewy.com and it won't be our last. Our toy poodle is on Hills z/d and we needed to buy a large supply of the canned. Chewy had the best prices and FREE delivery over $49. The food arrived in a reasonable amount of time and we saved $$$. Z/d is awesome in helping our furry kids with their tummy and skin problems. We only wish we had started our Raven (poodle) on it years ago. z/d and Chewy.com ROCKS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2cockatoos no allergy worries and pet loves the taste
My 7 year old ShihTzu had severe allergies both environmental and food. He also has had to have bladder stones removed. He had been eating the z/d dry food but we needed to increase his water intake. I tried the canned z/d ultra and he loves it. Knowing that the Hill's company stays with a fixed formula on their diets eases my mind that I KNOW THE INGREDIENTS in his food. The quality is excellent and I do not worry about "all those pet food recalls" that have plagued other pet food companies. He loves his diet and I am able to control the portion of his allergies that are food related. I know the food is expensive but it is worth it. Veterinary visits are not inexpensive and the better his allergies are controlled the less visits we have. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deeshuman just what my dog needs
It is unfortunate to have a pet with gastric issues but when my girl got to where she could not eat anything without upsetting her system the vets recommendation to the z/d has allowed her to return to a normal, healthy life. As a specialty food it is not cheap but to see my girl feeling good it is worth the money.
