Description

Hills Z/D available from VioVet

Hill's 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 Hill's 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.

Mini zd and the normal

Joanne George

  • VioVet customer since 2019
  • From: Tyne and Wear, United Kingdom

Are the kibbles exactly the same just the size? Which is better for a french bulldog and can it be mixed with the wet food? Or should you stick to one or the other?
Thank you

  • VioVet Staff

Hello,

Thank you for your question,

The mini z/d is smaller kibble but the formulation is the same across the different sizes. I'd probably give a French Bulldog the mini version unless you know he likes larger kibble - personal preference really :-)

You can use the wet and dry together - the easiest option if your dog is fed twice a day would be to feed dry for one meal, and wet for another. Or you can mix but just take care whichever way you do it to reduce the total daily amount of each appropriately so that your dog received the correct amount of calories per day.

I hope this helps!

Redness of skin

Lisa mayle

My dog has finished her steroids and anti biotic about a week ago. She has been on z/d for nearly three weeks. Her skin has started to go red again and has started to lick her paws again. Does this mean the allergy is not food related X

  • VioVet Staff

This is suspicious and it might rule out a food allergy, but it is too early to say. Some dogs do need more than 3 weeks to show a full response. Also some dogs will pinch a small amount of food (bread, biscuit etc) and if they happen to have a wheat allergy, or some other constituent of what they ate, they will react again. I would certainly suggest that you give the diet more time, but you are right and it might prove that this is not purely a dietary allergy. It is a bit too early to be sure about that.

Allergic to potatoes

bailey bobs

My dog is allergic to potatoes corn wheat and rice has severe skin. Allergies tothese myvet has put him on hills zd he loves it.but notice this has potatoes in.

  • VioVet Staff

All the proteins in Hills z/d have been treated to make sure that they are not recognised by the immune system. This means that even if potato is bad for your dog (which is unusual but certainly possible) it is OK to give him this particular food. [The proteins are "hydrolysed" which means they are broken down into smaller molecules. This does not affect their nutritional value, but makes them unable to cause an allergic response.]
