Hill's® Prescription Diet® y/d® Feline Thyroid Health
Controls her hyperthyroidism without any medication. Excellent product.
My cat was quite aggressive growling at night and drinking a great deal of water. The Vet was talking radiation and then I learned of YD formula. After a couple months on this food her thyroid labs returned to normal. I highly recommend and avoided having to administer pills which would have been a mutual nightmare.

easy transfer from old food.
Thrived well on y/d. Ate y/d as his meal and also used it as his treat, since he could not have any other food. no more pills to buy or forgetting to give them twice a day.

Bean's thyroid has returned to a normal range with the y/d diet
This product is wonderful. My 17 year old cat was too old and sick for any other thyroid treatments. Oral medication did not work and had to be stopped - it caused intense itching above the eyes that resulted in sore areas. Bean was quickly running out of options. Since Bean has been on the diet (wet and dry food), it is obvious he feels much much better - his coat is shiny again, he has started to play again, and he looks better than most cats his age (per the vet tech at my vet's office). Bean has gained about 6 ounces since the diet. I feed Bean the wet y/d in small portions every 3/4 hours and always keep the dry food out for him. I have my best buddy back again and I am grateful!

No more weight loss!
Our 14 year old loves this product and she has stopped losing weight. She still has plenty of energy but she's not zipping around the house like a Tasmanian devil and doesn't live at the water bowl. Thank you!

Helps my cat
My cat is doing much better since being on this cat food. I can definitely tell a difference from now and when he was eating whatever he wanted to eat. His overall health is so much better. I just would not have realized how it would help him. thanks so much

Great option for thyroid control
After the thyroid medication caused liver issues with my senior cat, we switched to the y/d food to control his hyperthyroidism. Within a month, his thyroid was back to normal levels. His eyes are clearer, his coat softer, fuller, and shinier. He has a lot more energy, and his attitude has improved.
After 2 months, his weight has maintained, and hopefully he can start bulking up.
He enjoys the food, but does seem to get bored with it. We give him the wet y/d food once a day to switch it up.

Thyroid levels are in normal range
My senior female cat did not do well on the thyroid oral medication. She had bad side effects. The radioactive iodine therapy is extremely expensive and not an option either. But I'm happy to say that after being on this diet for 3+ months, her thyroid levels have returned to the normal range. She eats the wet and dry Y/D. She's gained a few pounds back and her spirits are up. Her coat is shiny and soft and she even plays again. This food is expensive so I downloaded some coupons to offset the price. I'd recommend both the dry and wet y/d. It works!

It really works
My hyper thyroid cat had been in a shelter for weeks: seemed ok and pretty mellow but, eventually -- after some bizarre behavior and then some tests--turns out he is hyperthyroid. The kibbless are all he gets because he doesn't like the canned food. My second cat is not hyperthyroid but the vet says it's OK for her to eat the same thing and she's thriving.
The problem is finding it in a store-- THAT'S WHY I ORDER ONLINE WITH YOU! great service,, pleasant and knowledgeable agents. Thank you

My cat was diagnosed with a thyroid condition, cats typically don't like change but my girl adjusted and it has stablized her condition. I also feed her the can version of y/d as well. Although, I use coupons printed from the Hills website - I would like to see if there are any other cost savings for this product. Are there any recommended treats for cats with thyroid condition?
July 2, 2014
my 18 year old cat seems to enjoy this!
YD was recommended by my VET for our elderly cat who has thyroid disease.

Very Helpful for my Cat's Medical Condition
I started using Hill's Prescrption Diet as recommended (prescribed) by my vet. It has made a drastic improvement in my cat! She is back to her usual happy self! The only issue I would say is she doesn't seem to like the taste. At first she refused to eat the food but started to once she realized she wasn't getting anything else.

This product is a magic cure!
Only a few weeks after beginning to eat this food (exclusively), my cat's thyroid level is now normal. I no longer have to worry about making the decision to subject my cat to surgery or radiation therapy . . . a great relief.

need Romanesque it in flavors.
My cat gets bored with it only being one flavor. You need to do three different flavored at the cost of this food

Great product helps my cat
My cat has elevated thyroid. The vet prescribed y/d and it has cleared up the condition. She loves eating it and her appetite seems more normal now.

Life Saving Food!
MD then YD canned cat food has saved my kitty's life! He is doing so much better with it than before. He is 16 years old and we are heading to 17!

has kept my cat's thyroid controlled for 1.5 years
It has lowered my cat's blood thyroid levels from too high to the normal range. His activity is much better, not hyperactive, hungry and crying all the time. He is relaxed but playful, sleeps at night again and has gained back the 2 lbs he lost with hyperthyroid. No medications or surgery ever was needed. He loves both the wet and dry food.

This food saved my cat from taking thyroid medicine or having surgery.
My cat had extremely high thyroid levels and had lost a lot of weight. Within 3 months of eating the y/d food his weight returned and his thyroid level is back to normal.

This product is very convenent!
It is so much easier to give my cat this food than it is to give her a pill twice a day. We measure a certain amount everyday and leave it for her to enjoy at her convenience.

This is a very good product.
Our cat was recently diagnosed with a thyroid issue. This is the first prescription food any of our cats have ever eaten. The small size makes it easier to eat and digests faster. We also supplement this with the wet food as a "treat" (a small portion of the can divided throughout the day).

Hill's® Prescription Diet® y/d® Feline Thyroid Health
I personally love this product. It is a lot easier to give my cat her medication when it is in a food form like this. My only complaint is that it is kind of pricey, but I don't know how much the actual medication would cost in comparison.

My cat likes both the wet & dry thyroid product.
I was surprised, but my cat started eating the wet & dry thyroid product right away. She seems to be feeling better.

This product is very conevient!
It is much easier to put a certain amount of food down every morning for my cat than it is to give her a pill every day. She seems to like it and has no problem eating it. I tried to give her the wet Y/D but she didn't seem to like it. I would recommend this food for any cat that has thyroid problems.

Good product but costly...
The product has helped my cat w/her thyroid issues but it really puts a strain on an already tight budget. I love my cat so I'll do what's necessary to keep her healthy.

Expensive but worth it
My neighbors domesticated a feral cat and then moved away. The cat kept returning to the neighborhood from about 15 miles away (4 times) so I adopted him or maybe the reverse. Amazing solid black cat, Rex -- not sure of his age but he's no spring kitten. Took him to the vet for a checkup and discovered hyperthyroidism. Didn't like the 3 options the vet gave me for managing the malady so with google's help I discovered Hill's Y/D. I asked the vet why he didn't suggest it and he said cats won't eat the stuff but if I wanted to try it he would give me a free sample. P.S. My cat loved it right from the get go, has been on it for a year and a half and has maintained his weight, shiny coat and high normal thyroid readings. The vet is amazed and cites my cat as his first success story with Y/D.

y/d Solved our problem!
We have a 13 year old tabby named Soxie. It has always been impossible to get medications into our stubborn cat. Our Vet suggested your y/d food as a solution to Soxie's thyroid problem. He loves the food and it has solved his thyroid problem. Thanks Hills, Soxie is doing great!

Better than giving my cat medication
So happy to be able to feed a tasty meal to my cat instead of having to give her a pill. It keeps her thyroid normal.
May 9, 2014
Both canned and dry Y/D is very palatable for all 3 of my cats. This food has managed to control thyroid levels for my 15 year old cat for 2 years now with out the use of medication.

LAB VALUES ARE NORMAL
My cat had hyperthyroidism and was prescribed this food. His lab values were great at his last checkup!

Works! Quickly, too!
Mid March I noticed a lump in my Snuggles throat - so I scheduled a vet visit. They did blood work to find hyperactive thyroid. I immediately began to feed Snuggles Hills Prescription Diet for Thyroid to both my cats. It took a day or two for them to realize that this was the only food they were going to get - once they figured that out, they began eating normally again. It has been challenging for both the cats and me to not feed them anything else. BUT it is worth it. Follow up blood work was completed this past week - Mid April and I am pleased to know that the thyroid results are back to normal. Pleasantly surprised that it worked and didn't need to give meds twice a day! We will be continuing this approach! :-)

Easiest way to control thyroid levels
This food is crazy expensive, especially because we have to feed it to all 3 of our cats. However it has literally been a life saver for our one kitty that has has a hyperactive thyroid. His levels have been great since starting this food and all 3 cats love the taste. If your cat has this condition and less expensive options don't work for you, I highly recommend this food.
