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 Hills, 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.

* Formulated with Hill's Hydrolyzed Protein System, highly digestible proteins that minimize the chances of adverse reactions to food
* A single, highly digestible carbohydrate source to help avoid adverse reactions to food
* Highly digestible carbohydrates and fats to help reduce gastrointestinal workload
* Increased omega 3 and 6 Fatty Acids to help nourish the skin
* Added antioxidants to help maintain a healthy immune system and skin barrier function

This food requires a veterinary prescription.
Hill's is updating their Prescription Diet® packaging and a portion of the name. With Prescription Diet® z/d®, the current descriptor is "Ultra Low Sensitivity"; in 2015 it will be "Skin/Food Sensitivities".

When I got my rescue cat, I found out she had severe skin allergies and vomiting issues. She would scratch so bad that her body would have open sores. I felt so bad for her as she had to wear a collar for 6 months until we could find a food she could tolerate. At the recommendation of our vet, we tried the z/d. After a couple of months of being only on the z/d, she was finally back to being a "normal" cat. I was so happy to remove the collar after what seemed forever and it was so wonderful to see her turn into a content and happy cat! With her sensitivities, she will remain on z/d for life.

My vet prescribed my cat, Milo, the z/d formula in 2012, and for the past 4 years, Milo has been healthy and happy. He loved the food and would be sure to remind me when it was time for his next meal. Ever since the improved formula was introduced, Milo has stopped eating. He's even lost a couple of pounds because he apparently only eats enough to survive. I took him for his annual vet check up a few weeks ago, and his blood work showed he was in good health overall, so I can only assume that his weight loss is due to his lack of appetite for the "improved" formula. I will echo what others have already said: the food smells rank, and I thought it had gone bad the first time I opened a can of the new formula. I believe Hill's was trying to get the price down (which they did) but in the process they sacrificed quality. I am switching to a different brand because I don't want my cat to starve himself any longer.

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet z/d Feline Skin/Food Sensitivities Dry Cat Food:

This is the only cat food that my kitties can eat, due to having inflammatory bowel disease. I am only able to get 4lb. bags at the Vet, so I love the option to be able to get a 8.5lb. for WAY cheaper than Vet cost! :)

Cat threw up

By 

from Englewood, OH, United States

Accidentally left the Hills ZD dry cat food out while I was gone, my one cat with kidney disease got into it ate some, she threw it up, cannot eat Hills; not a good cat food. I'd rather feed her Fancy Feast than this food. She threw up the renal canned food as well from Hills.

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet z/d Feline Skin/Food Sensitivities Dry Cat Food:

This stuff is magic. Boo had oozy gross eyes and sneezed snot showers all over the house. We tried a few rounds of various medications. This food cleared it up. Phew!

Great food, but small

By 

from Oxford, MS

Our cat loves the taste of the dry food, but the pieces are so small he struggles to eat individual pieces. Is there a reason for the small bits?

Very Dissapointed

By 

from Syracuse, NY, United States

I have been feeding my cat z/d with great results until Hill's abruptly changed the formula, now the food no longer agrees with my cat. This is my third time posting this review as Hill's has rejected the first two negative reviews I posted. Disappointed in the food and Hill's customer service. DO NOT RECOMMEND!

a great product

By 

from Peoria, AZ, United States

My cat has been throwing up every night for the past 9 nine months..I have tried every procedure and help from the vet but to no avail....The Vet introduced me to Z/D and although it's beyond my means since my only income is S.S.I felt I had to do something.As of today, she has not thrown up and I'm so happy.... , .

"Improved Formula" does not agree with my cat

By 

from Durham, United Kingdom

My cat was prescribed this food about 4 years ago and it was amazing as his health improved dramatically. Unfortunately the formula has been changed and is no longer suitable for him.
