Hill's® Prescription Diet® i/d® Feline Gastrointestinal Health
My 11 month old Maine coon kitty suffered from bouts of diarrhea off and on for months. My vet recommend prescription diet ID for gastrointestinal health and it has worked wonderfully. My kitty hasn't had an incident since starting this product. Life is much better and Baby is much happier. She loves how it tastes and I love how it works. I would recommend this product to someone who's cat has irregularity.

Good product but expensive
My cat has been on I/D for about 7-8 yrs & she is doing very well. She was diagnosed with digestive problems so this is the only food that I give here. However it is pricey @ close to $16-$19 for a 4lb bag.....Pretty expensive I would say!

It works! What else can you ask for? Cheaper price would be good.
I love my cat, and I'm glad this product has "treated" her immediate issues, however, I'd rather find out the underlying cause instead of the "band aid". For now, it is fine, but at these prices it will not be a life time thing.

I adopted a cat I thought was 5+ years old from a rescue and found out by my vet he was actually closer to 10+. He had some bowel issues, so we put him on this food, which he loves. My other cat doesn't eat his food and vice versa. Stool has gotten firmer and his coat and overall well-being has been great. Highly recommended.

Expensive, coupons good
While this is a very expensive option, my cats do suck it down like crazy. I have to be very careful to limit the amount they get. It has helped with the chronic puking in my older cat.
The coupons which my vet told me about for $7 off were nice, but I only was able to print one or two, and now it says I used up my allotment. I guess the vet didn't understand how that was going to work, so I'm a little disappointed. We use a bag of this food every 3-4 weeks.

Great, but expensive
Love the product. Cats quit vomiting. Website only offers just a few coupons and therefore cost prohibitive for me. I have just begun research into less expensive options.

Huge affect on my cat's digestive system and temperment!
I highly recommend this product as well as the accompanying wet canned food and treats. My kitten was having tummy aches and gas after eating, resulting in loose bowel movements over extended period of time. She was also grumpy, didn't want to be held and was biting us ... not vicious, just irritable and purred at same time. After 2 doctors said she was having behavorial problems which were not related and recommended an internal medicine doctor and tests including blood, endoscopy, colonscopy and x-ray, I asked the last dr. about trying a better pet food. Twice, I had not been successful in changing her food, but seemed to me that her problems came from what she was eating. The dr gave me Hills Prescription id which my cat loved immediately. And adored the wet food as well as the treats. After 3 days, her sweet disposition returned ... and after 2 weeks, her bowel movements were completely normal! It has been over 2 months and all is well! The biting has stopped, she loves being held again, and no more loose bowels. I highly recommend trying this food before submitting a cat to upsetting, invasive and expensive tests without exploring the possibility of food intolerance or or other diet concern. Turns out my kitty is intolerant of wheat!

Has helped my cat's digestive troubles.
My cat, Shadow, had a lot of trouble keeping his food down. He would often vomit his entire meal shortly after eating. The Science Diet Prescription has almost eliminated the vomiting completely. He only brings up about a tablespoon on occastion.
In my opinion, Prescription i/d has made my cat a lot healthier, and both of us a lot happier.

works wonderfully on my cats' sensitive stomach
My extremely long haired cat ended up having surgery to remove 3/4 large hard hairballs in his intestinal tract that were bigger than $1 coins and hard as rocks. He couldn't even keep water down.
After the surgery the vet recommended Prescription I/D as his regular food. It works wonderfully and even when he gets large hairballs he's able to bring them up and they don't get stuck inside him.
I've tried to take him off several times and each time he's ended up back at the vet's usually at least overnight.
We stick with the food and he's fine.
My other short haired cat likes the flavour too!
Only downside is it is expensive and I wish the price would come down some as it's hard on a fixed income to buy.

Great product until they changed the shape!!
I have 2 cats that have eaten this food exclusively for years without a problem. The "new" shape without change of favor is refused by both cats. The favor must have changed because now I am in a battle to try to get them to eat the new formula. You can fool humans but not the felines!!
This is the feline equivilent to "New Coke" several years ago!!

Works great for cat with sensitive GI areas!
My long hair domestic cat...actually super long hair must have some Persian in him, had very bad furballs that he ended up having surgery to remove several that were hard as rocks and stuck in his GI tract. Afterwards the vet put him on Prescription I/D.
I didn't think this would be a forever deal!!
But anytime I take him off of it or mix it with other dry food, he ends up rushed back into the vet for at least an overnight stay while he gets re-hydrated and better.
After thousands of dollars in vet fees, he's permanently on Prescription i/d.
Only issue I have with the Prescription brand is that it is only sold at vets. Couldn't we have it at specialty pet food stores with a prescription or similar? I must have spend over $2K just on pet food in the last 6 to 8 years.
Now 14 years old, our "free kitten" now up to the $6K free cat! I think he's done pretty good for such a sick guy in the first place!

Does the trick!
When my cat pal Bobo gets an upset stomach, I switch him over to this food for a few days, and he returns to intestinal health everytime! He is a one year old long haired male, and upset stomach can lead to messy diarrhea, so I am very happy for this product, recommended by my good vet.

Needs it but does not like it
My cat has a sensitive stomach ever since I found him as a kitten under my neighbors porch. I tried feeding him regular cat food but he kept throwing up. I took him to the vet and was given a prescription for Hill's® Prescription Diet® i/d® Feline Gastrointestinal Health. He does not throw up any more but he does not like the taste. I have to mix the Hill's® Prescription Diet® i/d® Feline Gastrointestinal Health with other Hill's dry or wet cat food so that he will eat the Hill's® Prescription Diet® i/d® Feline Gastrointestinal Health. I wish Hill's would change the formula of Hill's® Prescription Diet® i/d® Feline Gastrointestinal Health so that cats would like the taste.
