Hill's® Prescription Diet® c/d® Multicare Feline Urinary Stress with Chicken Urinary Tract Health
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.

Product works well and cat likes flavor.
Our cat was developing urinary tract stones. This product has
helped to keep stones from forming. Have used for about 4-6 months. Hoping for long term prevention effects.

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.

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

Hill's Prescription Diet c/d
Hill's Prescription Diet c/d multicare feline urinary stress dry food has made a great difference for my rescued American Curl cat. He was in pain when he urinated due to the formation of crystals. He no longer shows discomfort when he urinates My vet has me continue the Hill's c/d for my American Curl and my two Himalayans as a preventive measure to maintain their urinary tract health.

All cats like it I have three
My only complaint is the packaging, the ziplock top just doesn't close very well.

Cat had a blockage
My three year old male cat was doing a lot of licking after he urinated. We took him to the vet and they diagnosed him with a severe blockage. Turns out he was a very sick cat. They kept him for the weekend, gave him antibiotics and fluids and changed his food to the c/d. They sent him home after two nights in the hospital with lots of meds and more c/d. It has been three weeks, he is just about finished with his meds, and has finally stopped licking after he urinates which tells me he is no longer in pain. The vet HIGHLY recommended the Hill Prescription c/d. We are changing our other cat to the c/d stress, which just came out, too. My cat loves it too. Thank you Hills!

Jury still out
Had no problems with switching my four year old male cat to this food.
He was eating another Rx diet but vet tech suggested this one since it included supplements for "stress"..
Being a new product and knowing my cat suffers from Cystitis and is prone to develop struvite crystals I decided to try Hill's RX food for the very first time.
So much research points toward reducing stress for cats that are prone to urinary issues and this product probably would be the answer if I could give it to my other cat who sometimes likes to stalk the cat who is on this food, but I cannot due to the fact that he has IBD and has built up a food intolerance to the protein source of chicken and may have issues with grains.
It has only been about two weeks since we made the switch and the one thing I have noticed is : 1)He has a bowel movement everyday now 2) he appears more relaxed than normal when he is by himself and no other cats are around 3) he seems to like this food
there are three things I like about this food and they are : No wheat gluten, no soy and the added supplements to support the nervous system.
I am still not overjoyed with the grain products being first and second on the list of ingredients and you will not find any of the RX urinary foods that leave these derivatives out, I have searched endlessly.
There are alot of people who think grain free is the way to go and I was one of them till my cat developed struvite crystals again and ended up blocked after trying to take him off of the RX diet he was on. I even tried grain free canned, does not work for some cats who obviously may have problems concentrating their urine and other issues.
So, the only thing I would like to see an improvement in this RX food would be that meat be the first ingredient, I feel that it makes a cat food a higher quality product when you see a meat source listed first instead of number 5 or 6.... I was always told the first five ingredients are what shows you if the food your cat is eating is high quality. I wouldn't mind the grains being in there so much if they were on the low end of the ingredients...
