Z/D For our British Shorthair
After months of trial and error, we were advised by our Vet to try Z/D. We, and Jazzy, are living "happy ever after". It has solved the IBS problem.
Couldn't be without it.
My 4 times rehomed Battersea girl who - due to poor treatment and Bengal genes has trouble digesting food (vet says its gastric motility resulting in chronic vomiting) thrives on ZD. Previous owners didn't work this out..... She eats ZD little and often, I warm the wet food up slightly which appears to make it more palatable and once her tummy has settled I can then switch her to small portions of the dry version. Patience, love and ZD have transformed her life.

I went to the vet quite frequently because both my cat have digestive problems, but after I changed my vet, the new one recommended this food to me!! At the beginning, I wasn"t used to the consistency, but I was just so glad that my 2 cats eat it because they are terribly picky!! I also sometimes mix it with some water!

Tastes and is tolerated
I don't particularly like the ingredients, but if you have a cat with a food allergy you are grateful for every food which is liked and digested by the cat. I can really recommend this for cats with food allergies!

My cat, Titi, developed severe allergies from when she was 5 months old (diarrhea, weight loss, lack of appetite, apathy, etc.) We found out that this was life-threatening, so we started feeding Z/d.
Ever since, Titi only feeds on it. He now is 2 years old and absolutely thriving and has finally reached a normal bodyweight.
Yes, it is expensive, but health is a priority!
Works very well for cats with digestive disorders
I have already tried dozens of sensitive brands, even had to mix psyllium with the food. My cat has digestive disorders, a sensitive gut. Then, my vet recommended this food to me and it worked perfectly. The constant diarrhea is gone, I don't have to mix anything with the food anymore. He also eats dry food but he is addicted to the conserve and prefers is pure. I think that especially the pudding consistency is what he really likes, because before I started using this, he would always just lick the jelly away and leave the solid bits of meat.
For my allergic cat I always buy 24 packs, and he absolutely loves it. It was recommended to us by our vet because we really didn't know what to do, but I am delighted to have changed to Hill's, which I find most effective. My cat continues to take medication, but we got through Hill's diet, which enabled us to lower the doses.
Great product for sensitive tummies/skin
Until I found this product my poor cat had months of problems with tummy upset and itchy skin with many vet visits and fruitless investigations. This is the only low allergen food I've found that works and hills are an excellent brand. My cat prefers a tiny bit of water mashed in with it to loosen the texture.
