Description

Hills I/D available from VioVet

Hill's i/d has been carefully formulated to be particularly easy to digest. It is very suitable for many disorders associated with symptoms of poor digestion. It can be prescribed by vets for particular medical conditions, but is frequently used simply for individuals which are prone to intermittent vomiting or diarrhoea. Hill's i/d is sometimes used when no specific underlying problem can be identified, but symptoms of poor digestion persist. In these cases Hills i/d might be used and if symptoms are controlled, it can be used indefinitely.

35 Ineffective relief
Verified Purchase

By Nicholas Nardecchia on 22 May 2019

I bought this on the recommendation of a vet for our cat who is diabetic and has also recently been diagnosed as having pancreatitis. As a consequence he now suffers from diarrhoea. Although Max was quite happy to eat this food it was unfortunately ineffective at dealing with his diarrhoea.

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Hill's Prescription Diet i/d Digestive Care Cat Food, including answers from our team.

24 November 2014 at 5:53pm

High pancreatic readings

colette

My cat has developed pancreatitis do you have a wet and dry type food suitable for him please?

  • Non-Executive Director

Hills Feline i/d is usually suitable for feline pancreatitis. It is available chicken flavour in both dry and canned versions, as well as a salmon flavour wet food in pouches.

14 October 2014 at 1:26pm

Suitable food

S Humphreys

Hi my vet thinks my cat had liver disease would I/d diet dry be ok for him as he didn't like the wet food

  • Non-Executive Director

The dried version should be fine to use as long as your cat has free access to plenty of fresh water and appears bright and perky. If your cat appears unwell at the moment in any way, then your own vet is better able to advise you on what to give.

Suitability of food for my cat

Sue Fowler

My cat has been on the urinary prescription diet for many years due to cystitis and crystals, he now has pancreatitis & the vet said he must go on to Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Moderate calorie food which would be suitable for both conditions. Unfortunately he doesn't like this so I am searching for an alternative food & wondered if this Hill's ID food would be suitable for both his conditions?

  • Non-Executive Director

The causes for some cases of cystitis, as well as crystal formation, are difficult to be sure about. I think therefore that it is impossible to be sure that the Hills i/d cat food will be suitable. However it will probably be OK, especially if you use the pouches, or maybe the cans. Cats are more likely to suffer from urinary disease if they are on dried food, due to the reduced water intake with their food. You should check with your vet, but I think that Hills i/d is likely to be suitable for your cat now.
