Description

Food sensitivity and intolerance are potentially serious problems that can result in sensitive or irritated skin, coat and ear conditions or even gastrointestinal upset. Cats 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 cat suffers from adverse reactions to food, it is even more important to feed the right food. At Hill's, nutritionists and veterinarians have developed clinical nutrition especially formulated to help manage your cat's dietary sensitivity and help reduce the possibility of adverse reactions to food.

Key Benefits

  • Clinical nutrition especially formulated to help manage your cat's dietary sensitivity and help reduce the possibility of adverse reactions to food
  • Designed to improve digestion and stool quality with ingredients to help reduce gastrointestinal workload
  • Helps eliminate food related causes of skin irritation and a healthy skin barrier
  • Formulated with highly digestible proteins that minimize the chances of adverse reactions to food
  • Clinically proven antioxidants help maintain a healthy immune system and skin barrier function

  • So Happy for this new food!

    By on

    Food was recommended by vet for GI stool issues with one cat. I was reluctant, cost 4x higher than store bought brands-but it’s worth it — my cats love this new food! They eat dry food only. Changed over to new gradually blended with old food 25% to 50% to 75% to 100% over one month. This has solved the GI issues! Try it as treats first to see if they like it and get them used to it. Best pricing on this food here on Chewy.com of any place!

  • I Love Chewy!!!

    By on

    I ordered this product because 1) my cats seem to have drier skin in the wintertime; 2) One of my kitties has an intense distaste for many foods (he did not like this one, but I tried) and he prefers mostly chicken flavor so it was completely my fault for not checking the flavor before purchase. However, my other two cats love it!!! They go absolutely crazy for it!

  • Love, Love, Love Chewy!

    By on

    My local pet store was out of this food, again, and it is the only food my cat can eat. I tried Chewy and was 120% happy! So easy, I ordered, texted in my prescription, and the following day, my cat food was delivered right to my door. I have signed up for auto delivery I am so happy. No more trips to the pet store for me!!

  • Amazing service!

    By on

    So glad I found Chewy! Very gracious and helpful customer service, and I couldn't believe how quickly my order arrived. My kitty has IBD and through much trial and error have finally come upon the only food she can keep down. It is much less pricy ordering through Chewy than at the vet's. And this picky eater will gobble it down. I am now a forever customer!

  • hypoallergenic cat food

    By on

    Good hypoallergenic cat food. My cat is allergic to everything for now and has IBS and chronic vomiting when on anything else. This is also a good food for seeing which protein sources your cat is allergic to. Must use for at least 6 weeks, then by slowly reintroducing each protein(chicken,fish,etc.) one at a time, you can interpret which one your cat reacts to.

  • Hills Z/d food sensitivities dry cat food

    By on

    This was prescribed by my vet for one of my cats. Now it seems to be liked but I have never smelt anything like I smell now when they poop. It wafes into all rooms of the house. I guess it is cleaning them out. Still, I hope it helps them. I have only had just gotten this and haven't even used it for a month yet so it takes time to see what the affects it will have, besides the smell AFTER eating it. The food itself doesn't smell at all. and it is tiny so my cats like that better.

  • My cat's allergies seem to be treated by this food

    By on

    My cat was showing sores above her eyes and around her ears. I put her on a wheat free diet and she improved considerably but then the vet said I should put her on the z/d dry cat food to really address any food issues. She then really became completely clear of the sores. But the wheat free food was mixed in so I thought I could just use the dry food - however, she started throwing up (on the rugs of course). When I read the ingredients on the label, I saw that the z/d food had hydrolyzed protein. Since she has been 100% on that she has been fine - no vomiting no sores. I bought some of the wet cat food but she didn't like it - I have two cats and the other one turned his nose up at it My cat was showing sores above her eyes and around her ears.

    These food has helped my Shadow with his food allergies. Along with the wet variety, using this product has changed his black coat from a dull and unkempt with dandruff to sleek and beautiful! Its a pleasure to pet him, and he is happier too!
