This food was a godsend when I rescued my 1yr old cat to be my companion/support fur ball. He was not doing well in the shelter & I was just dealing with my 3rd spinal surgery so we saved each other. He had hot spots all over his lower back & base of tail where he could reach. So when we went to the vet the first time we knew he probably had a serious food allergy. That was confirmed & he had issues with his pancreas, he got some antibiotic shots & the permission to be bathed to help his skin. I had switched his food to a sensitive cat special food & those spots got better, but not completely. Then I went back & we switched to this, & just like that everything got better. It was literally a flip of a switch for him making me so thankful for this food. For whatever reason he will NOT eat the wet form so I can’t really say much on that.
We were on Hills urinary dry food until he started becoming sick very often. His bladder stones were resolved and he hadn’t had issues in months. But his excessive throwing up caused him to go from 18lbs in January to 13.5lbs in October. Vet said switch to this and when I tell you my boy ceased throwing up - he did. Before he was throwing up all of the urinary dry food. He’s a long haired boy so naturally he has hair balls but this was more food than hairballs. We started this formula and he was instantly better within days. But now we’re in the dilemma where his stones have returned - even though I have continued to give him the urinary WET food with this sensitive dry food. I started him back on the urinary dry food like the vet said on a Friday and this boy by Monday threw up 5x and had the poops bad. This formula from Hills was wonderful for my baby Einstein. He seemed to feel much better until the devil stones came back. I’d love to keep him on this food, he enjoyed it and he’s a sensitive boy. Will have to switch back to urinary food but going to try Royal Canin instead of Hills to see if he stops getting sick. I would definitely say if you have a frequent throwing up cat - this helped our boy immediately. I’d say give it a go!
I tried getting prescription cat food before, and it was a nightmare. The other site needed a copy of the prescription, and then needed to call my vet to verify that prescription. A call my vet said never came. It ultimately led to us not getting the food. Now my elderly cat really needs it, and chewy made it incredibly easy. We got the food in no time, and my cat thinks these kibbles are treats so she's really happy. 10/10 would buy again
I like this food for my kitty Baby since it’s prescribed & the only food she can eat without throwing up. With other “healthy” food it was constant, the vomiting to the point where she was diagnosed with pancreatitis. She’s what you call chronic pancreatitis so this food is hers for life now. I worry that she’ll get bored of it but it’s been over a year now and she still seems to be enjoying it. Her coat is very soft & no more vomiting she appears in very good health for an almost 7 year old.
My cat is currently on this as an elimination diet trial for suspected food allergies. She is eating it ok, but she isn't thrilled with it. I think it's just a bland taste/smell. It is early to tell but she seems to be doing better already, which is good news. Hopefully this will help us identify the problem one way or the other. She sure misses her treats (which may be the culprit).
One of my cats has digestive issues, so my vet prescribed this. It took him a couple of weeks to warm up to it, but now he loves it. Super expensive compared to other options, but it keeps him healthy and at a good weight, so it is worth it.
My senior cat who had chronic hernia related vomiting issues loves this food and responded well and quickly with this food prescribed by our vet - added some warm water to the thick pate wet food. She also likes the kibble.
My kitty was diagnosed with IBD so the vet recommended this food. After a couple of days of eating it the vomiting began and boy was there was barf! So. Much. Barf. For science I removed the dry food from his diet and the vomiting ceased. When I reintroduced it, two days later, the vomiting started up again.
Our picky ginger loves this food. She was placed on it after having chronic issues with vomiting and nausea. This is all she eats and she’s done great since thankfully. Wish I could have her try Z/D wet but she refuses all wet food including tuna!!
My cat had skin reactions to food allergies and she has done very well on this food. She seems to like it as well. I have another cat with urinary issues and this also has a urinary component, S OX shield to help prevent crystals, so it's nice that they can eat the same food without having to buy two different variations. He enjoys it as well.
