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.

Great for stomach issues

My cat was having stomach issues and the vet had us try z/d. Casey loves this food and while it is expensive, her issues are gone and she's a happy cat.

Z/D IS TERRIFIC

By 

from Maryland

I have been feeding the canned and dry versions of the Z/D prescription cat food to my old cat for a few years now. She loves them. I use the canned version to give her pills mixed into it and she is always a member of the clean plate club. The food has kept her from scratching her face off.

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

      My cat never seems to tire of this food; it is his 'reward' that he receives after getting his morning medication. He typically eats about a can a day, or perhaps a little less. (He weighs about 8 pounds.) The hydrolyzed protein in this and the dry form of the same food is the only protein to which his allergies don't react, and which he can digest without upset.

        Wished the texture were more enticing

        By 

        from FL, United States

        As others say the texture of this product is "rubbery" as Jello. Our vet prescribed this as trial for our cat's stomach issue. As soon as I opened the can, our cat turned around and left the feeding station (aka kitchen ;-) ). Since our cat is not fond of drinking water anyway, I mixed very small amount of bottled water with this product to make it "soupy" to encourage fluid intake, and topped with her favorite but not desirable for her issue fish based can food. Then she ate some. My suggestion is that the product texture and aroma need to be more appetizing for picky eaters.

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

          One 8 year-old cat had poorly formed stools and the Vet thought it might be a food allergy. Lab evaluation of stool was "negative." After two weeks on the dry and canned z/d, the stools are still not formed but now they're very smelly, as well. That's a lot of money for really smelly nasty looking poops.
