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.

If we cannot do so within 3 working days we will contact you by email.

Delivery of food abroad (including Channel Islands, N. Ireland and other islands around the UK) is charged at a higher price and free delivery is not available. Temperature controlled products, such as Insulin, are also not always subject to the standard and/or free delivery options.

For full information on our delivery charges, including prices on heavy deliveries to Scotland and abroad, see our delivery information page.

Delivery of temperature controlled items

Some products, such as insulin and frozen food, need to be delivered in insulated packaging to prevent them from getting too warm (or too cold) during transit from us to you. Purchasing any of these items in your order will result in a £1.99 charge being added to the total to cover the high cost of the insulated packaging materials. You only pay the £1.99 once per order, regardless of how many temperature controlled items you purchase in that order.

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.

High pancreatic readings

colette

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

  • Veterinary Advisor

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.

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

  • Veterinary Advisor

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?

  • Veterinary Advisor

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.
