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".

My kitten has been struggling with stomach/indigestion issues since I got her from the humane society. I tried all types of canned/dry food and finally got recommended this product through my vet. It is very expensive, but my cat loves it and hasn't had a single problem with diarrhea since! It's worth it. And my new cat (adult) likes it too!

My cat with tummy issues rarely touches the dry Z/d food. He enjoys the canned version and would probably eat more than a can a day if I could afford it. However, the dry food is rarely touched. I replace it frequently and notice that some is consumed on occasion, but certainly not daily. Is there something that can be done to jazz up the taste and still uphold the health aspect of the product? Thanks. Peg

Worth the purchase

By 

from Wells, Maine, United States

Both of our cats have food sensitivity issues, including sensitivity to the type of bowls they eat out of. We have been feeding them Hills z/d formula for the past four months and have seen positive changes in their eating habits, which has reflected in their coats and play. While the food is expensive, we are thankful that Spaghetti and Caesar are able to eat and play like regular cats!

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

    My vet told me to switch my cat (about 14-15 years old) to this to help with food allergies that may be causing problems. We'll have to wait and see how it works.

      Has reduced my cats itchy skin

      By 

      from Arizona

      Good product, nice size bags. Some of the competitors bag size are too large. Kibble is small, I would like to see a larger kibble or at least an option to purchase the same product with a larger kibble. Has was too many carbs in it. Would be nice if treats of some type came in the ZD formula.

      This product works as claimed

      By 

      from Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

      Z/D was recommended by our Vet for one of our cats that developed itchy skin. He wore a cone until we could switch his food. He loves the taste and his scratching stopped. His coat is glossy and so long as this is his only brand he gets access to, he does not develop sores from scratching or excessive licking. Our other two cats want to eat this dry instead of their usual once loved brand.

      My cat has food allergies but we don't know what ingredient is the trigger. This food works well and it must taste good because she loves it. Getting prescription authorization from my vet is fast and shipping is fast too. I only have to reorder a week before I need more.
