Hill's® Prescription Diet® c/d® Multicare Feline Urinary Stress with Chicken Urinary Tract Health
Ingredients are not special
I received a prescription of this food when my cat had a urinary blockage. I have been feeding my cat grain free foods for years and now I was being told that in order for him to get better I needed to feed him Hills SD. He liked the dry food but wouldn't touch the wet food. After looking at the ingredients however, I stopped feeding it to him, because the second ingredient on the list is corn, which I have eliminated from this cat's diet since he experienced food allergies at an early age. Plus the benefits of providing a grain free diet far out way any benefits the Hills food provides.
Comparing the ingredients to the grain free food, Hills ingredient list does not include anything special. The minerals and vitamins are practically the same as what are provided in the grain free food I have been providing. On top of that the grain free food provides other wholesome ingredients like flaxseed, and chicory root both of which have excellent health benefits.
I don't see anything in the grain free food that could be causing the condition my cat experienced and there is certainly nothing that I can see in the Hills diet that is special to cure him of this condition. And if there is then it is also in the grain free food that I already provide as well. It makes you wonder what contract the vets have with Hills to make this food a prescription food and then to make this food so special that they try to lead us to believe it is the only food that can be fed to the cat while he recovers and that it is a part of the cure. I think that is pure hogwash.

I know it is for urinary stress but our senior cat Boris is more relaxed and chases his sister less and not as aggressively.
Less stress for us and Natasha.

My Cats love this product
I have a multi-cat home, 6. I have 2 male cats that I have to feed the Urinary Tract food and one of my males is somewhat aggressive, he picks on the others. Since I have been feeding this product to all of my cats they seem to be getting along much better. This product is a little pricy but the results make it worth the money. The only draw back is that I have to order the food from my vet, there isn't anywhere on the Hills Science Diet website that I can order on-line.

CD Multicare Stress Works
From the first bite, my girl has benefited from this food. She seems more relaxed, less stressed, and she is not urinating outside the litter box. Only negative is that this food contains corn. I really wish Hill's would discontinue the use of this ingredient. Otherwise, it would be perfect.

Our cat can be a picky eater when it comes to dry food. We switched to the Hills prescription diet and she can't get enough of it! We can no longer fill her bowl for the day she loves it that much!! We are super satisfied with the product and wouldn't use another food!

My cats love the flavor!
I am currently feeding this the all 3 of my cats. It has helped all 3 of them with varying urinary issues. Even my picky eater will gobble up this food. I just wish it came in a bigger bag at a value price! It's so expensive! I also love using the coupons when they are available!

bigger bag please
Great product please make it in a bigger bag. We are a multi cat and a bigger bag would be easier than 2 or 3 bags at a time.

Hitachi Sniff-specting Hills Prescription Diet CD Stress
My cat, HItachi, looks forward to mealtime. He is fed only multiple small portions. He likes to eat when we do. When we are off our regular schedule, he reminds us it's mealtime by going to his food bin and knocking down his Tupperware portion.
Hill's Prescription Diet is more expensive to purchase, but it is worth every centime because of the pleasure my cat derives from eating it, and the health benefits he gains. I only wish that Hills could help the pharma companies with giving taste to the medication one must give a cat because unlike a dog, most cats won't eat just anything.

It really does work
I use both the wet and the dry. He doesn't love it but he eats it. He hated the stuff in the big cans but will eat the newer kind in the small cans. But,the bottom line is that it works. I stopped it for a while and he crystals came back. It isn't cheap but it is cheaper than the vet bills. I really think the stress reduction part is amazing. Our cat always got sick when we had houseguests or lots of commotion going on. He just now sailed through my daughters wedding with a ton of people in and out and a week with her cat living with us while she was away. He was calm through it all.

This is the best!
My cat has had UTIs for most of her life. I switched to the c/d but her issues were always stress induced. As soon as this stress brand came out, I quickly had my clinic order it. It has been great. Even my other cat who has no UTIs but is a picky eater LOVES this cat food. I would recommend this food to anyone with a cat that gets UTIs.

Feline CD worked wonders for my female cat who was spraying and was just miserable. With antibiotics and then a constant diet of the CD, she now is a happy and healthy kitty.

This product fixed our household issues!
I had a male cat with urinary issues, behavior issues, and crystals in his urine. My vet suggested C/D urinary stress formula. I have seen drastic improvement. So relieved to have something that will help, and I know it is all around healthier than what I was feeding them.
I have 7 cats. They all love it. I was worried about that because decades ago my cat would not eat this food.
I do worry about the 2 females who have weight issue because I understand cats can gain weight on this food. I seriously worry how long I will be able to afford it. It is very expensive and I am feeding seven cats! The coupons help.

Necessary to my pets health needs
I feel this product helps to keep my cat healthy , not to mention he loves it !

My cat first got urinary crystals when he was 3. The vet cured it with antibiotics but it recurred months later. He prescribed Hill's CD. My cat has been on it for 6 years and only had crystals once when the pet sitter fed him the other cats' food for several days. CD comes in wet pate and dry formulas. My cats love both. My other cats have been eating it for about 4 years so there won't be anymore mistakes. We're all grateful for this Rx diet because it really works for us,

My cat, GINGER, loves it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was told by my Vet that my cat, who is 11 years old now, should be switched to Hills CD diet instead of the original Hills product. I have always fed her Hills products since she was a kitten.
She never turns her nose up and walks away from her Hills food.. Thanks Hills,

Consistent reliable product.
My cat eats it but he prefers to eat non CD food that our other cat eats. Probably flavor issues. I have concerns on the price as the cost at my vet's office seems to rise on a regular very frequent basis. The online coupons help when available.
I think our non CD cat likes it better than our CD cat. Go figure.

Great if your cat needs special food!
My cat seems to love it! I don't go through it that quickly but there haven't been any bladder issues since she started eating this brand! Great!

My cats won't eat it
I have tried mixing it with food that they liike,but they spit out the prescriptio diet and leave a soggy mess of prescription food next to an empty bowl. I just added a small quantity of the prescription diet at first. When they refused to eat it, I gradually increased the amount of prescription diet. Same response. Finally, I fed only the prescription food, and for 10 days, they did not eat the dry food at all but chewed on door mouldings, newspapers, cardboard boxes, etc. At last, frantic because they were not eating food, I called their surgeon who told me to try the best OTC urinary diets until I found one they would eat, which I did.

C/D has helped tremendously
I have a male (neutered) cat who is experiencing stress (move, new animals in home) and starting urinating outside his box for the first time ever (very experienced traveler). Took to vet, they gave antibiotic shot and recommended c/d. I started him on it, but he did not like it. I wasn't sure if it was a physical or mental problem--this cat is a big "scaredy cat". I went another couple of weeks with similar problems, finally got a urine sample for the vet, and was again told he would have to go on c/d. When I finally understood the problem (this vet explained problem thoroughly), I again put him on it and it helped immediately. He seems to like it fine now. He has only been on it two or three weeks. The only problem is, no treats. I'm thinking of buying the canned food, cutting it into small pieces and drying in oven . . . My cat will run like crazy for a treat.

Very glad this product is available. My cat had not had any urinary tract problems since starting this product.

This product helps my pet!
My cat has been on Science Diet C/D for 3 years now. He had a urinary blockage and has been on it ever since then. He has not had any problems since he has been on this food! I would recommend this to anyone with a cat that has urinary issues.

Cat with bladder problems
The first two bags I bought were called Bladder Health and my cat loved it. Last trip to vet they only had chicken or fish Urinary Stress. She will not eat this one until she is very hungry which makes me feel bad.

This product keeps my cat healthy.
This product keeps my cat healthy. He didn't like changing food at first but now he's ok with it. I'll keep using this cat food because it keeps him healthy.

It's like I have a new cat :)
I've been working around veterinary medicine for years now and when my kitten started having urinary problems at 6 months old, I knew my poor baby had a long road ahead of him. He's not one to form bladder stones, but he does go through episodes when his bladder becomes inflamed and recently he suffered from a urinary blockage. I have done everything the experts say to do, I feed a wet urinary diet, use pheromone collars and defusers, added extra letterboxes and water fountains, he has toys to keep him active and I've even started giving him anxiety medication to keep his stress levels down (which only seems to stress him out even more :-/# I've been using Hill's diets for years now, so you can only imagine my excitement when I found out that they were coming out with a stress formula. It is absolutely amazing the difference you can see in him. He acts like he feels so much better and his stress level seems to be greatly improved #he's become more social and doesn't seem scared of everything or everyone around him. The food is little on the expensive side, but the results I have seen are 100% worth it.

expensive but needed
My cats eat it. It does its job by preventing crystal formation. My thought would be stop with the coupons and just drop the price by the coupon amount. I have had struggles and nightmares trying to get it to print. Finally one was mailed to me, but I had to get the product 2 days before the coupon arrived.
June 23, 2014
Our cats enjoy your product. We just wish it didn't cost so much, or at least had better coupons available more often
