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!

I was happy to see they have a choice of bigger cans or the smaller ones. I like to give him his medication with the wet food and he loves it. It is a little sticky of a consistency and food does stick to fingers and sppon but all in all he loves it and is happy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dina 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 WarlowSchnoo Works for skin conditions
It cleared up my dogs skin condition. When I switched him back to a different food for a couple of days his skin irritation returned so it is definitely helping his skin irritation. I doubt it is the tastiest food but he eats it up. Has a strange smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dee15 This is a great product my dogs love.
Hill's Prescription Diet z/d has been great for my dog's allergy. he hasn't had an episode in 4 years. We have 2 dogs and feed them the same even though only one has the allergy. They love it and they are happy and healthy. Chewy is a terrific service too. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sophia72 Good for my dog.
Whatever is in this product has certainly made my little girl a much happier chihuahua. It was prescribed by a vet who took care of her as though she was her own. She will probably be on this the rest of her life so please continue to provide me with this.

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!

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 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 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 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.

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 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 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.

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.

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.
