Hill's® Prescription Diet® y/d™ Feline Thyroid Health
Hill's Prescription Diet y/d Feline Health
Lucy is a 13 year old white fluffy furball cat. She started losing weight, being restless, and hungry all the time. The vet said it was her thyroid. He started her on Hills. I had my doubts. After a few months on Hill's she started to get back to her old self, no longer begging for food constantly. Her last check up, her blood was good, heart rate good, and she had gained five ounces. Thanks Hill's!!!!

18 Yr Old Kitty Amazing results
My 18 yr old kitty was diagnosed with hyperthyroid and elevated kidney values. The 2 go hand in hand with older cats. We started her in this diet about 1 year ago. Her blood work has improved so much that her elevated values were cut in half. Her T4 was 5.8 before the diet, and now is a steady 2.4 We get her tested every 6 months just to keep an eye on her health. She no longer vomits up her food and she is no longer losing weight. She hasn't gained any weight either, but she is pretty old so 6 lbs is good for an 18 yr old. She gave the dry food a try but didn't seem to eat much, so we switched her to the can and she eats every bit of it. It also helps her get more water into her system eating the can version. I also reccomend getting a pet fountain to help increase your cats water intake this will help keep flushing their kidneys and keep UTI's to a minimum. My cat is not on any medication for her issues only the Y/D can no treats, no hairball gels, just Y/D so make sure that's all they get and keep other pets foods from your Y/D kitty so the diet works the way it is suppose to. If you can do that then you can stop medicating your cat. The food is expensive, but my little girl is worth every penny. I wish Hill's could offer frequent buyer coupons to help out the cost to US pet owners. Maybe someday they will. This food really works just make sure they eat nothing else. Hope this helps anyone who on the fence about this product.

So far so good
My 15 year old cat has been on this diet for one year this month. She has gained a half pound and does not throw up all the time like she did before. I have another cat and that makes it hard to make sure she does not get his food. I have had a few occasions where she has gotten his food but for the most part she only gets this food and likes it. I use the canned and then keep the dry out for her. My other cat likes the food too but I make sure he gets some food with iodine every day. I had him checked at his last appointment and his thyroid is fine.

This product works well to keep our cat healthy
I like that my cat can stay healthy by eating food instead of taking medication. My only suggestion is that you might also make this product in smaller cans since she will only eat 1/2 of the can at a time and only when it is freshly opened. She will not eat it after being tightly sealed and stored in the refrigerator. Even heating slightly in the microwave does not help. The veterinarian suggested mixing in low salt chicken broth or canned pumpkin, but that did not help. I feel like I am wasting so much food!
