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

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.

Oscar Puts on the Pounds.

About Me Long-time Pet Owner
Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet z/d Feline Skin/Food Sensitivites Canned Cat Food:
After trying so many different types of foods for our special kitty, this one finally works. Oscar not only has a hard time metabolizing most foods, but they also cause him severe skin irritation. After moving to Los Angeles and finding a new vet, we were prescribed the Z/D diet and have been so happy with the results. Oscar has gained weight back, his skin has cleared up, his coat has filled out and softened a great deal. We are so relieved to have finally solved his food dillema.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My kitty LOVES your wet ...
from Madison, WI, United States
My kitty LOVES your wet food! He devoures it without any problens! I bought more food yesterday and uortunately,yl your 'new and improved' formula is something he doesn't like at all! It's really upsetting because he can't eat anything else without getting sick- please change your formula back! :)

My kitty is super finicky and allergic to just about everything....chicken, fish, humans! This is a food that she both can and will eat! It also hides her meds well.

Works but need flavor options!
from Dallas, TX, United States
We have been using this food for 3 months. Our kitty had been vomiting for almost 3 years and after other prescription diet's and changing vets twice, the 3rd vet recommended Hills Z/d. No more vomiting! But it took our kitty 6 weeks to eat this food exclusively. He still won't eat the slimy canned version. Every couple of weeks he gets picky again and crys for something else. Our second kitty won'the even come near this dry food...Sure wish you had another flavor option!

I have to admit your food has made my cat stop vomiting but I'm not sure I can afford it. She is using Prescription Diet z/d skin/food sensitivities. I tried to get one of your coupons and ended up with a "dog" coupon which the store would not let me use. I suggest you provide "Hills" coupons to make it more simple.

Kevin is very healthy & happy on this food. He eats both canned & dried z/d. Makes me happy also.
