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.

My cat Chloe has been doing great on the original z/d canned formula for over a year and a half. Now I get the new "improved" formula and she won't eat it - she just walks away. The smell and texture of the "improved" formula is awful! I don't know what to do - she has been doing great for so long and now this! Why did you have to make the new formula so awful smelling? Please change it! I called customer service and registered a formal complaint. For now I'm mixing the "old" formula cans I have left with the new to try and transition Chloe. Not feeling very optimistic about it.

Z/d diet

By 

from Wellington

My 18 year old cat Cliffy suffered for a long time from diarrhea and very smelly soft stool. He was always a very picky eater and always ate a lot but was not able to gain weight. We did blood work to see if he had a thyroid issue or anything else but all he has is a bit of anemia. Since I now switched his diet to the sensitive stomach ( z/d) diet his stool got firm and less smelly. He Loves it. Since Cliffy has no more teeth I make him a soupy consistency mixed with Rebound OS. He is still thin but otherwise healthy. He is just an old man. Very happy with this diet... although a bit expensive as Cliffy eats 2 -3 cans a day.

Inflammatory omega ratio

By 

from Oklahoma City, OK, United States

I guess Hill's couldn't afford to make this expensive prescription food with the right amounts of omega-6 and omega-3 to be within the recommended range of 10:1 to 5:1. Too much omega-6 compared to omega-3 is well known to exacerbate inflammation. My cat hated the food anyway, so no loss there.

Very disappointed with new formula

By 

from Sacramento, CA, United States

Since adopting her, my cat has had stomach issues. After many vet visits/tests/prescriptions/etc, she was finally doing well with the original z/d wet food. And as a bonus, she loved the food and would eat all of it. Unfortunately, she does not like the new and 'improved' formula. It has an odd texture, very mushy and messy. Not sure what I am going to feed her now. Hoping to find another brand that she will eat. Very disappointing.

Bad "improved version"

By 

from Aurora, IL, United States

Firstly, my cat isn't crazy about the improved version. Second, the new texture makes it impossible to get a good scrape of the can (more waste). Thirdly, as others have said IT REEKS!

new formula - yuck

By 

from Philadelphia, PA, United States

My cat Hershey has been eating this for many months. When I opened the first can in the newest case I thought perhaps it was spoiled. He still eats it, but I think it's disgusting. It smells horrible, and I don't like the consistency at all - too soft and sticky. The older formula wasn't perfect but better than this. I agree that smaller cans would also be a good idea.

Why the change...yuck

By 

from Virginia

I would have given the old formula 5 stars. I didn't realize the formula had changed and when I opened a can of the new supposedly "improved" version, it smelled so bad I thought it had gone rancid, but apparently that's just the way it smells now. Understandably my cat does not like it as much either. The new version is also really gross to clean up from the bowl. Before the formulation changed, from the very first day, my cat would inhale the stuff she loved it so much. Now she just eats a tiny bit and walks away. It makes me really sad.

reviewers agree: great, but we need smaller cans!

By 

from Lansing, MI, United States

Excellent product. But after that "new food" magic wore off, our cat really only loves it when it's freshly opened. A day or two after opening - even with a tight-fitting rubber lid - it's difficult to get him to eat it. Wet food is the only way we can administer crushed pills, so we have no choice but to open another can, which leads to a lot of wasted food (and wasted money, since it's not the cheapest stuff). Would you please offer it in a smaller can size? That would be a great improvement. I see that this is a common customer request, which you have referred to your team several times over at least the last three years, in response to other reviews. Any chance your team has made some progress on that?

Really Improved

By 

from Knoxville, TN, United States

When a new case of this food arrived, it looked slightly different and I thought I was sent the wrong food. It stated Improved Formula. We have to add a medication to this food and the old formula, our cat would eat but slowly. This new formula he loves, even with his meds , so I am a believer that it truly is tastier.

Smells foul

By 

from Halifax, NS, Canada

Don't have too much to add that hasn't already been said by other recent reviews. The smell is pretty awful and the consistency is pure mush -- very difficult to get most of the product out of the can compared to the 'old' formula. Previously, one could get 99% out in 3 seconds flat and just add water as needed to moisten it up a bit. The smell more than anything is the big change. Not a fan and neither are my cats (anymore).
