Hills Z/D available from VioVet

Hills prescription diet canine Z/D is a unique combination feed, developed to aid dogs with numerous food allergies and intolerances, which can often lead to the onset of further health conditions such as digestive difficulties. Allergies and intolerances are typically an adverse response to food proteins, and Hills prescription diet Z/D has been specially formulated to counter-act these proteins and lower the risk of allergies arising from beef, wheat and dairy products.

Works well for food allergies

27th January 2014
  • VioVet Customer Since: November 2009
  • From: Hertfordshire, United Kingdom

Hills z/d is one of the foods I used on my GSD with skin and bowel problems. I have read the previous review and it seemed to be the wrong diet for that dog. I just wanted to say that z/d seems to work well for some dogs and not for others. My vet recommends trying it for a few weeks as a test, then deciding if it is worth keeping with it. Apparently some dogs are transformed completely and are much better on z/d, but some do not respond. If the skin problem is not due to a dietary allergy then it will not respond. If a food allergy is the cause, then z/d will work well. It was great for my dog, but a bit expensive. I now feed a home-made diet and that works too. The z/d got the itching under control at the beginning and helped us with the diagnosis, as well as making my dog much more comfortable.

BEWARE HILLS ZD!

26th January 2014
  • VioVet Customer Since: July 2013
  • From: Cheshire, United Kingdom

I FEEL IT IS IMPORTANT TO STATE MY EXPERIENCE OF HILLS ZD. IT WAS RECOMMENDED BY MY VET FOR MY DOG AS HE HAS A SKIN ALLERGIES. WITHIN A WEEK OR SO OF STARTING ON THIS FOOD HE DEVELOPED SYMPTOMS OF IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME...STRAINING, CONSTIPATION, BLACK STOOLS AND DIARRHOEA AND MY VET IMMEDIATELY DIAGNOSED THESE SYMPTOMS AS IBS. THIS CONTINUED FOR A FULL 9 MONTHS UNABATED WITH NO BENEFICIAL EFFECT ON HIS SKIN. ON REVERTING TO HIS PREVIOUS DIET (JAMES WELLBELOVED FISH AND VEG.) THE IBS SYMPTOMS DISAPPEARED WITHIN A WEEK. MY VET WAS NON-COMMITAL WHEN I POINTED THIS OUT BUT SIGNIFICANTLY (?) DID NOT SUGGEST IT WAS COINCIDENTAL WHICH IT CERTAINLY WAS NOT. FOR THE SAKE OF OTHER DOG OWNERS THIS NEEDS TO BE REPORTED.
