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 my vet suggested Hill's Z/d diet, she told me that most cats would like the dry food but probably not the canned. I bought both in any case and my cat loves both versions. She freely grazes on the dry all day but is especially excited with the canned food. The texture didn't look inviting to me, but is rather like a pate that my cat adores. She licks her plate clean. She's only been on her new diet for two weeks now but I'm seeing gradual improvements in her skin allergies. it's expensive but seemingly well worth it.

As with any Science diet we have ever used, my cats don't like it. Sure the first plateful was gobbled up, because it was new. But by the third can they turn their noses up to it. The dry gets eaten like any dry food, limited, because I (and they) prefer wet cat food and it is better for them also. My other pet peeve is that you usually have one "flavor". Maybe the reason my cats eat a lot of canned food is because they put out lots of flavors to choose from. Whoever says cats don't really need variety, don't know my cats. The texture of the z/d is like gelatin. At least the cat tried it, some of them wouldn't. Besides the z/d, we had used two other prescription diets. I know my cats need a special diet for what ails them but they deserve variety in something that is an important part of their life. So if you could work on the variety portion of it, they may cooperate. I am willing to pay for the food they should be having, but they deserve variety. If they wont eat it, they wont eat it.

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

          My kitty was recently diagnosed with IBD so we're in the process of figuring out what foods she'll tolerate. It's a difficult process, especially since I have another cat without sensitivities being subjected to the diet, as well. My kitty doesn't love the Z/D wet food. She will eat it if she's starving, but if there's something else available, she'll definitely go to it first. It has a gelatinous texture so I'm not sure if that's the problem or if it's the actual taste. As an alternative, she does like the D/D venison wet variety. Another variety, *not* for an IBD diet, that she enjoyed previously was the I/D both dry and wet versions. I think the Z/D is worth a shot because it would be well-tolerated for a kitty with tummy issues, but it's mainly going to be a matter of if your kitty prefers it. We'll keep trying!

            Smaller cans would be nice instead of wasting it.

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

            One of my two kitties suffered from belly issues after giving him too much dry treats. My vet recommended z/d wet about a year ago and he is doing much better. I add some water to the food as it is quite pastey. I also add a few z/d dry morsels to the top as an added treat. This food has kept both my kitties weights down as well as their appetites satisfied. I too would like to see smaller cans as my cats are not fond of leftover food.

            It's the only can food my cat will eat. Please make smaller cans because he doesn't like it as much when refrigerated..sometimes half he can is wasted.

            "Wheezer" will eat but we waste half a can most times because he won't eat it after it's been open for a little while. Wish it came in smaller than 5.5 oz

            My cat has a sensitive stomach so this is why it was prescribed. My cat likes the wet but not so much the dry. This is an expensive food, i have tried several times to get coupons online but I'm never successful.

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

            I have a senior cat who has always been a very finicky eater. Since I rescued her two years ago, she has had a series of gastro-intestinal issues, sometimes requiring hospitalization. After her last attack, her doctor prescribed Z/D Feline Ultra food for her. Given that she is a very picky cat, I was concerned that she would not eat it. Wrong! She made the transition from her old food to the Z/D in 3 days! Now, she doesn't want anything else. She seems to be doing very well, and her doctor and I are optimistic that this food will help her. Also, after I received a damaged shipment, Hill's responded immediately to resolve the issue. Thanks, Hill's for all that you are doing for my kitty and me!
