Description

Hills Z/D available from VioVet

Dietary allergies and food intolerances are surprisingly common in cats. They usually develop in young or middle aged cats and can cause a variety of problems affecting the digestion as well as the skin. Usually they will be to one or more specific proteins in the diet. None of the dietary proteins which commonly cause these reactions are present in Hill's Prescription z/d Diets, so feeding the diet for at lease 6 weeks will allow the reaction to subside and the symptoms improve.

Feeding Guide

45 Brilliant wet food for cats with severe food allergies
Verified Purchase

By on 19 February 2021

Doesn’t look very appealing but my cat ate it, though he isn’t very fussy. The vet prescribed this after he was admitted to the vets after being very ill and not being able to keep food down. Turns out he has a severe food allergy and this is the only food he can tolerate. Fully recommend if your cat has allergies too. My fussy cat wouldn’t go near it (to steal his food) originally but recently she has started trying to steal it so I can imagine fussy cats will take a while to get used to it. Very difficult to find a vet approved hypoallergenic cat food that is wet and not just the biscuit option! Thank you for stocking.

45 My cats love it
Verified Purchase

By on 16 January 2021

It looks odd - like chocolate mousse - very different from any other cat meat (wet food) that I have given them over the years. They do eat it up though!

45 So good, even the other cat wants it
Verified Purchase

By on 23 December 2020

We normally dread trying new food, especially where it's without certain things in it so we now expect our cats to sniff it and walk away. But with this one, not only does our beloved subject love munching on it, our other cat is now turning his nose up at his own food - we don't want to deprive him of a 'normal' diet so we're not switching him, but he doesn't half love cleaning the bowl afterwards! Too early to tell if it's making a difference for what we need, but liking it is the first step.

The difference

Annette McDonald

  • VioVet customer since 2016
  • From: County Antrim, United Kingdom

What is the difference between the zd and the sensitive hills food as I ordered the sensitive food instead of the zd that my cat is on as he had allergies and the vet isn't sure what of all I no is that fleas are one

  • VioVet Staff

These two diets are completely different and are used in different situations. The z/d is processed so that it cannot contain any food allergens at all (theoretically). If there is a genuine concern about a dietary allergy, z/d is a good choice. The Sensitive diet is not free of allergens and might cause trouble if a cat happens to be allergic to one of the ingredients. The good thing about the Sensitive diet is that it is generally very easy to digest, so most cats will do well on it if they are prone to diarrhoea for other reasons. It would be fine to use in a cat with a flea allergy.
