Questions & Answers

11 Customer Questions

Is the food strictly from USA
Answer by ChewyOct 31, 2017
For a product to carry a “Made in the USA” label, it must be made from all or virtually all products from the United States. For pet food, that includes the packaging, ingredients, and production of the food. This product is made in the USA.

Does this "small bites" bag come in a larger size?
Answer by ChewyOct 22, 2019
This formula is currently only manufactured in a 7 pound bag.

Are these kibbles smaller than the standard z/d dry food?
Answer by ChewyMay 14, 2020
This kibble is a small bite size that is designed specifically for small breed dogs.

I have two small dogs. Both around 13 lbs. One has itchy skin and the other has bad teeth. Both are seniors. Is there one dry food I can give them both?
Answer by ChewyJun 29, 2019
This z/d recipe is specially formulated to help reduce your dog’s food and skin sensitivities. The Hill's Prescription Diet t/d Dental Care Chicken Flavor Small Bites Dry Dog Food has a unique kibble shape and size cleans the tooth surface by scrubbing away laden plaque in the mouth to promote systemic health.

dog likes it and so does his stomach

my dog has had issues with chronic vomiting and occasional diarrhea for his entire life. he would throw up after every meal and could barely hold an acceptable weight. i dont know why it took my old vet so long to long to realize that we were coming in 8 times a year with the same issues. i gave up and went to a new vet who set us up with this food in just one visit. the difference is night and day. teddy hasn't thrown up, has had perfect stools, no nausea, no loss of appetite, fantastic energy AND he likes it. my only gripe is that they don't sell this food in 4 pound bags. i get it- the idea is that this food is supposed to last an 8-12 week trial. but.......i don't want to feed my dog 12 week old kibble. its not gonna stay fresh that long. my dog won't eat kibble that's been sitting in his bowl for just a few hours, imagine 3 months. yuck. he can barely get through a 4 pound bag before it goes bad.

Helped control digestive issues

After 4 months of digestive issues, my vet recommended this hydrolized protein diet to calm the obvious inflammation in my Yorkie's digestive tract, so we can better discover what things she's sensitive to. She's been on it for 2 weeks now, and I've noticed a marked improvement in her stool frequency, consistency, and smell (plus, no more vomiting!) Best of all, she likes the flavor so we had no battles about it. I can even give her these kibble as treats (unlike her previous regimen of cheese and chicken treats for training purposes). Given how expensive it is (understandably so, as it's specially processed), I hope I don't have to buy more than one bag while we figure out what she's sensitive to....but I'm glad this was an option for addressing her digestive issues!

Loved it, now hates it

My chiweenie is having digestive trouble. Vet recommended switching from Hill's i/d kibble and canned to z/d kibble and canned. We did a gradual transition over a week. Initially she loved the z/d and was quick to eat that first. But after a week, she refuses to eat z/d kibble or canned. Also refuses the i/d kibble and canned. I don't know if the food is the problem or her health condition. We are back to square one. Not sure what vet will recommend next. Currently she will only eat rice and boiled chicken breast. I'm sure she likes that better, but it's not a long term solution.

New to Chewy

First of all, being new to Chewy I did not know what to expect. This Hill's product is so hard to find, and our vet recommended Chewy. Got on with the program and we had the food within a few days as promised when we made the order. I guess I know now where we will get our pet products. Thanks Chewy!

Good dog food

This food must be good tasting because my dog likes it. However, he has every known food allergy known to man and he cannot eat this food jyst straight. We use it mixed in with his straight hydrolysed food to give it more flavor. That works great for us.

Very Tiny Pieces

Only for very small dogs. I did not realize I'd ordered a new and different sized kibble with this bag. The regular size was much better for our 18 lb. dog.

Jazzy loves it!

Years of skin issues, bad yeast infection constantly. Tried many things, almost monthly vet visits, so this was on list of foods vet gave me to try. Jazzy loves it and this also serves as her treats. She has only been on this since end of June and I am seeing a difference in her skin problems so a win/win. Hoping she continues to like it and I see more improvement in her skin.

Ease tummy troubles

Our pup had a sensitive tummy and itchy skin; due to food allergies. Our vet recommended z/d and in 30 days we noted less itching and improved bowel movements. After a year, our pup still loves meal time, suffers no itchy skin issues now, and we’re thrilled to have found a quality meal plan. Since this is a prescription diet, Chewy makes the process easy by communicating with our vet and the auto delivery process is convenient and saves money. Thank you Chewy!
