About Hill's Prescription Diet GI Biome Cat Food

Hill’s GI Biome Diet

Hill’s Prescription Diet Gastrointestinal Biome cat food takes a different approach to digestive care. Each formula uses a specific blend of active fibers, known as ActivBiome+, to help your cat’s stomach break down food more efficiently for healthier stools and to help improve regularity. It also contains Hill’s S+OX Shield ingredients, formulated to promote urinary health.

Healthy Stool in A Jiffy

Hill’s Gastrointestinal Biome promotes stool regularity in as little as 24 hours. Its ActivBiome+ Technology, an exclusive blend of prebiotics, whole grain oats and pumpkin, works with your cat’s unique gut flora to foster balance and better stools.

Activate the Gut Microbiome

When it comes to your kitty’s digestive health, the balance between good and bad bacteria is key. Promoting the growth of good bacteria helps keep problematic bacteria in check and supports digestive well-being.

Know the Signs of Digestive Issues

If you notice vomiting, diarrhea or soft stools, straining, stomach gurgling, flatulence, appetite changes, lethargy or depression in your cat, it may be from digestive trouble. See your vet for more insight and see if changing foods can help.

Risk Factors

Many things can trigger digestive issues, including food sensitivities, inflammation and bacterial, viral or parasite infections. Your vet can help determine what’s causing your kitty’s troubles and figure out how diet may play a role.

This item is OOS, when do you expect to be restocking it?
Answer by amandaMay 06, 2022
i heard from my vet that hills is considering stopping the production of this food. couldnt speak to anyone there myself. but looks like hill's doesn't care about the babies who depend on this food. ive been scrambling for months now finding a bag or two at my local pet smart.

When will this be back in stock? It’s been months and my cat needs it.

this cat food, gastrointestinal biome. has been out of stock for a long time. are you ever going to get more in>

Is this food low in sodium, phosphorus, and protein? My cat with CKD is currently on this food, per my vet, to control her diarrhea. I see that it has Omega-3 in it which is good, but I want to make sure the sodium, phosphorus, and protein aren’t too high.
Answer by ChewyMar 03, 2021
This food has a sodium percentage of 0.31% , phosphorus percentage of 0.7% , and protein percentage of 37.5%.

LIFE SAVER- for myself and the cat!

My cat had pretty chronic diarrhea suddenly. We could not figure out how to stop it. After multiple vet visits (even switching vets) our new vet recommended/prescribed this food and it is the ONLY food that my cat can eat that doesn't cause diarrhea. I have stopped looking for any other food. That being said, the manufacturer is extremely back ordered with this product so I got desperate and tried to switch her food to a store bought one- NOPE. Thankfully found an office with ONE bag in stock and bought it. Here's to hoping HILLS Science Diet gets their supply back soon!

Good for cats with IBD

My mini panther was having stomach issues and loose bloody stools. After several visits with her previous vet, we changed doctors and her new vet recommended this food. After a week, we noticed a huge difference. Her stool is normal and she's back to her sassy self. The bag is pricey, but it worth every single dime!

Solved the Belly Trouble

Like so many others who have posted here, my kitty found great relief for her belly troubles once starting this diet. We had been really struggling with liquid, stinky poops. This food help her immensely!

Works, no more poopies

One of our cats has had a terrible time with liquid poopies since she was a little thing. Many vet visits, shots, pills, other foods, it kept coming back. As long as we keep her on this she does great. It's overpriced but what are you gonna do?

Answered Prayers

My 3 yo old kitty went to the vet because she wouldn’t eat (just licked the juices out of her wet food). The X-ray showed her intestines full of fecal with no obstruction/blockage. Her blood work revealed not dehydration. We were prescribed lactone (she hated it!) and would not take it at all. She would gag and vomit right after I placed it on her gums. Upon researching, I found HSD Gastrointestinal Biome dry Food. She took to this food immediately (and she is an extremely picky eater). After half a day, she did a healthy poo. Thanks to this food, she did not have to go back to the vet.

Why so expensive?

My teenage kitten has had soft stool ever since he started eating solid food. Poop would get stuck to his butt and on his fur (he has long hair) every time he used the litter box, and I would literally have to give him a full bath at least twice a day. I have wasted so much money buying different varieties of food that wouldn’t cause my cat to have a blowout after he ate. Thinking that he had a food allergy, my vet prescribed Hill’s GI Biome. My cat’s poop turned from mush to solid within 24 hours of eating it. Since a diet that consists of only dry food is not healthy or appealing for any animal, I also bought the GI Biome wet food. I found that using a slow feeder bowl seems to prevent him from inhaling his food, which helps with digestion. Thanks to Hill’s GI, the slow feeder bowl, and Proviable probiotic paste, poop no longer gets stuck to his fur or butt and I honestly have not had to give him a bath since he started eating this. My cat and I are much happier, albeit much poorer.

working in conjunction with other things

My Milo has IBD (diarrhea, inappetence, weight loss) but bo vomiting. He was previously on a hydrolyZed diet (Purina HA) and then Royal Canin PV. He had a bad flare-up with the diarrhea and weight loss and my vet suggested Hill’s Biome. Now, bear in Mind, the food change is in conjunction with switching him from Budesonide to Prednisolone, adding a 2-week course of Metronidazole, and adding a daily Proviable probiotic. All of these things working in concert are working for him and it has been 1 week. No more runny stools. He eats the Biome canned and dry. I wish Chewy would have it consistently in stock because I worry there will come a day they won’t have it in stock when I really need it, and then we will be in trouble. That is the only downside of this Biome diet. It has to be used exclusively. And cats with IBD as especially sensitive to changes in diet.

This food saved my cat’s life

I cannot praise this food enough! My 9 year old cat was very constipated. For years, she had very small, hard bowel movements and was leaving them all over my house. I thought that was just normal for her. She would have episodes of getting extremely sick and the vet would have to sedate her to give her enemas. In 2021, I had to take her into the vet for enemas 3-4 times. She had been losing weight and was i only 6 lbs by October 2021. My vet consulted with a Hill’s rep and he recommended GI Biome. It has literally saved my cat’s life. Within 2 weeks she was having healthy bowel movements daily. She has gained weight back and her coat feels healthy again. Her temperament has improved drastically too. I didn’t know how sick she really was before, but now I have my cat back thanks to this food.
