w/d Feline Digestive/Weight Management Chicken Formula Dry Cat Food
|Available Options||MSRP||Your Price|
Some cats can be more prone to gain weight than others. Even a little extra weight can impact the pet's quality of life and relationship with family because that extra weight can reduce play time, impact mobility and affect the lifelong general health of your cat. Weight problems can be successfully managed through changes in your cat's food. Hills nutritionists & veterinarians developed Prescription Diet® w/d®® clinical nutrition especially formulated to support your cats weight management. In fact, w/d® is clinically tested nutrition for conditions that respond to fiber.
* Helps maintain healthy weight
* Promotes urinary tract health
* Supports a healthy immune system
This food requires a veterinary prescription.
Hill's is updating their Prescription Diet® packaging and a portion of the name. With Prescription Diet® w/d®, the current descriptor is "Glucose Management-GI"; in 2015 it will be "Digestive/Weight Management".
Some pets may need help in switching to an updated pet food. Make the transition easy on your cat's digestive system. To transition, mix your pet's current Prescription Diet® w/d® dry with the new w/d® dry. Over 7-10 days, gradually decrease the amount of the current Prescription Diet® w/d® dry while increasing the amount of new w/d® dry. For some pets, the transition may take slightly longer. Please speak to your vet if you have any questions.

Out cat had a blockage so the vet put him on w/d, unfortunately he was hungry all the time, we couldn't feed him much as he would throw it up. After several months of having to feed him small amounts 6 times a day, we switched to i/d. He is no longer howling at night and is much calmer, and.....no more throwing it up. He is a big Tom, 14 lbs.
After trying almost every cat food under the sun (grain free, super expensive, best of the best, etc.) to no avail, my vet recommended the Hill's Prescription w/d for my kitty who had loose stools for the past year. Within a short period of time, she had her first normal bowel movement! It is hard to express the crazy joy I felt over this - I had almost given up. I know she is feeling so much better now as she no longer has the stinky gas or large volumes of mushy poo (sometimes tinted with blood). She has always received wet food with a dry supplement, but she is eating more dry now since she favors the dry w/d formula over the wet w/d formula. I have no problem getting her to eat the dry version, but getting her to eat the wet version is a challenge. I have tried mixing it with other food, covering it with other food (not mixing), sprinkling it with the crushed dry version, you name it - she just isn't a big fan of the w/d wet. I am still trying to get her to eat it when I can, but at least the dry has made a huge difference in her life and I am so thankful. If you have tried everything else and nothing is helping, ask your vet about this food. Even though the ingredients aren't what most people consider to be top of the line (wheat, rice, corn, etc.) they have the perfect blend of fiber to help bowel issues and make my kitty more happy and healthy and that is what matters to me. I am so glad I decided to give it a try!
My vet recommended this food to help us manage our cat's weight. I have used if for nearly three years and our cat loves it and has kept her weight down; however, I am finding that the price keeps going up, and sadly we are now at a point where we really can't afford to buy it anymore. I would still recommend it, but with a caveat re: the cost.
At my vetâ€™s recommendation, I've been buying Hill's Prescription Diet W/D cat food for many years and want to thank you for changing the packaging to include the Velcro closure. It's much easier to use and I'm sure it helps keep the contents much fresher. Good work!
Hill's w/d diet for felines is by far my favorite diet! I've had several felines on this diet over the course of many years for various medical conditions. This is such a versatile diet and comes in both dry and wet formulations and also the new addition of the stew. My felines have always loved the taste of this diet and they have maintained very well over the years.
We switched my cat to Feline w/d and his stool have never been better! He now acts like a "regular" guy and couldn't be happier! Thanks, Hills!
Even the cats that don't have to eat this food, they like it.
