Hill's® Prescription Diet® w/d® Feline Low Fat-Glucose Management-Gastrointestinal with Chicken
This product worked for my cat.
My cat had to be put on wet food after he had an operation to remove bladder stones. Everything he ate gave him diarrhea and he wasn't crazy about the food either. The Vet said I should try Hills W/D cat food and boy did that do the trick. He loves it and it cured the diarrhea completely. I couldn't say enough about Hills cat food, it's great.

A Little Pricey
It is a little expensive, but worth the extra money to keep our beloved pet as long as we can!

My cat likes the chicken flavored Prescription wd and the regular wd. I will rotate so that my cat has variety.
My cat loves the Prescription wd dry cat food. He comes running at meal time and enjoys the chicken flavor as well as the regular wd. I will rotate flavors for him to add some variety to his diet.

Helps with Weight
This food keeps my cats weight under control and his glucose levels as well. Sometimes it has like rubbery pieces in it and I'm not sure what they are, I pick them out. I wish it came in different flavors and wasn't so expensive.

Wish it came in smaller cans!!
My thin diabetic cat does not like to eat leftovers. She is thin and needs to enjoy her food. She needs to eat enough to maintain or gain some weight back. I have followed Hill's Science Diet instructions of heating in microwave and still, she does not like leftovers. Please, please, please offer this in a smaller can!!!!
My cat will eat well from the first serving of a newly opened can but refuses to eat when offered leftovers. If I wait until she is really hungry, she barely eats the leftovers, not nearly enough to maintain her weight. Her vet insists this is the best food for her so I am stuck - I am throwing out huge amounts of leftover w/d. This is just not right!!
I have had several cats in the past who ate this food and were healthy into a very old age. The food seems to work well, just as the doctor predicted. I'm sure it is helping my diabetic cat now.
Hills Science Diet, have you considered plastic bags as a container, or maybe a plastic cup? It doesn't have to be a can. But something smaller would be great!
Please, please PLEASE!!! offer feline w/d in smaller containers!!!!! .... I promise to buy loads!

Great for healing Stress Colitis
Due to living in a hotel for 2 months (house flood) my poor kitty became stressed and developed colitis. Our vet recommended the WD prescription diet and it has been great. We are back at home now but keep him on this brand as I have also noticed considerable less shedding and that makes the little extra money worth it.

W/D resolved the gastric issue my cat had and he loves it!
I have a 5 year old Apple-head Chocolate-Point Siamese male cat named Simon. He was a rescue and when I adopted him over two years ago he had terrible gastric issues including loose bowel movement and terrible gas.
After examining Simon and reviewing his medical history and surgeries, my vet recommended W/D to me. Since that time, Simon has been eating W/D wet and dry food. A week later his gastric issues disappeared.
Now, he cries twice a day if I am late serving him his W//D wet food, chicken flavor and gobbles it up. Thank you Hills Science!

My 11 year old cat is younger than ever on this diet
Sirius, my black short hair male cat began moping around when he was three. It seemed like he got old overnight. Little did we know that he had some digestive issues. It was several years before we found a vet who diagnosed the problem. In that time he had gained weight from inactivity. At 21 pounds he was a lazy couch potato with whiskers. After going on a supervised diet of W/D, he gradually but steadily lost weight. It took almost a year, but he made it safely to his optimum weight of 12 pounds. Now he acts like a young cat again. He even jumps to the top of my cabinets. Something he never did when he was overweight and moping. The food not only helped him lose weight and keep it off, it has helped him with his digestive troubles. It's great to have my cat happy and healthy again. Thank you Hills!

Poor taste and too expensive
We feed WD dry and can to our diabetic dog. She likes the dry ok but we have always mixed a little can food with dry food and so she is looking for this. But she hates the WD canned...it's like trying to eat peanut butter...sticks to roof of her mouth. It needs more "gravy" or something to make it easier to eat.
Also it is super expensive. We are feeding it because she has to have it. But I feel that it is why it is so expensive....you know you got us between a rock and a hard place. We have to have so you know we will pay the outrageous prices. It has been a huge financial burden on two retired people. If we had other options we would definatly try something else.

My 2 cats can't get enough of Prescription Diet w/d canned & dried food!
One of my cats had a bladder problem and needed to eat the Prescription Diet w/d food. She loves it! and improved 100%. My other cat, who is a very finicky eater, loves it too. Although the food is expensive, it is so worth the money. My cats seem much healthier. The website has coupons periodically that helps with the cost.

Peace of mind at a great price
One of our 12 year old cats has turned diabetic. She doesn't care much for the dry prescription food, so I started getting the canned which she really likes. I give her insulin shot while she's eating and have no problems! I compared nutrition label and got a hi-protein food at the pet store to use in a pinch (vet was closed the day I needed some more) and the price of the name brand no grain food from the store was actually higher than the prescription food! Plus, as my vet explained, your food has been formulated especially for diabetics and low glucose needs. So it is peace of mind (no "hoping" it's the right food for her)..at a great price. Also, I can print coupons from your website to use for it-thanks for that!!

My Cat has done a total 360 with his diabetic condition. This food has helped him a lot.

Saved my cat's life!
My cat had a urinary blockage and was prescribed feline c/d. He gained a lot of weight, and our vet recommended w/d as an option. It has been years since his blockage with no relapse. Thanks from me and Max Dude!

It's good for a diabetic cat
It would be great in the smaller 3 oz. cans. It takes 3 -4 meals for my cat to finish the 5.5 oz. cans and he loses interest in it's flavor/freshness before the 3rd serving. I sometimes have to throw away the last portions... Great for Hill's Corp.... Not so great for me the customer who would like to see smaller cans like the rest of the canned foods Hill's offers.

I think da quality of this wd can food had changed Dramatically.
Look very different than six months ago. Can food looked very dry and my cat used to love this same food totally hates it now. At first I thought probably just my cat changes her taste bud, but I realized that the quality very inconsistent, and most of the cans very bad quality

LIke the large can and ease for opening. Food smells o.k.
At first both my cats (13 &4 yrs ) ate the food. This lasted about a week before they started walking away from it. Cats are very finicky and need to have other flavors. I currently add a teaspoon of former cat food to the Rx one in order to get them to eat.

This canned food keeps my cats in good health

When my cat developed pancreatitis six years ago or so, this is the only food he would eat, and he has eaten it ever since. Thanks for the good product!

Four stars at the most
I wish the food came in different flavors. My cat does not like chicken flavored cat food and eats less then a quarter of a can a day because of it. The cost of the food is also high when you are on a budget.

our vet recommends this and the results have been good
Our 15 year old big boy was having GI problems. We refer to this food as his WD40. In any case, he has not been to the vet except for annual check-ups/shots and has been doing well on his WD40 diet.

W/D to L:ose Weight
We have been using W/D for our cat to help him maintain and lose his weight. I highly recommend this product if you want your cat to be at his or her optimum health. Not only did our can lose the necessary weight to remain healthy and active, he's also maintained the same healthy weight for a number of years. Thank you Hill's!!

Great Product. Expensive. Should Reward Heavy Users
Great product! Helped cure Irritable Bowel in one of our boys. They both lost weight even though we use six cans a day for two adult cats. Costs us a lot each month. Our Vet and us belive Hills, the manufacturer should reward heavy users like us with coupons, etc.

Helps my cat with constipation; but doesn't keep well
One of my two cats experienced constipation so the vet prescribed w/d. I feed both of my cats the wet and dry. My cat is doing much better with less problems with constipation. My only complaint is that the wet does not keep well. My cats eat it well when I first open a can, but by the third feeding, they will hardly eat it. I wish it was sold in a smaller can. It is so expensive and I am wasting a lot of it when they do not eat it well after it has been opened.

Not crazy about this product
My vet prescribed this to my diabetic cats. I don't know thay they enjoy the flavor. I think it is expensive. I also don't like the fact that it had bi products in it. I would prefer to switch to something else, but the vet wants to keep them on this diet.

Nothing is nicer to his tummy.
Our kitty will eat anything, but most cat foods tear up his GI tract.We've tried other wet foods but always return to W/D. It's also his fav

This keeps my cats weight were we want it to be,
our cats are seniors so they have gained weight they don't need... As we all do as we get older. This food has taken off the weight and kept they healthy at the same time. Even my tabby with no teeth still loves her WD....

Hard sell at first
We adopted two six year old adult cats; our vet said they were over weight. Past experience has taught that it is better to address this before problems develop. We have been feeding Science Diet products (wet and dry) to our other two cats and were aware of w/d. Our vet agreed that this could be beneficial and prescribed w/d (along with w/d dry). We had been feeding Science Diet canned salmon flavor, which the cats completely loved. The w/d only comes in chicken flavor and at first all four completely rejected it, even when mixed with the regular Science Diet salmon. They have since come around and seem to enjoy the taste - the one who liked it the least now is the most eager to get it.
About my ratings - I have fed Science Diet products to my cats for more than 30 years. I believe it to be excellent in quality. I rated the taste as average because our cats definitely prefer the salmon flavor, although with cats, taste is highly subjective. (as noted, w/d is only available in chicken.) I rated the value for the money as good because the w/d is significantly more expensive than regular Science Diet canned. I did give an overall rating of excellent because I do feel w/d to be a high quality product and of benefit to our cats' well-being. I would definitely recommend it for cats with weight issues.
