Hill's® Prescription Diet® z/d® Canine ULTRA
This food has been great for my dog!
My dog loves this food and we also feed him the can Z/D Ultra. When he was a puppy and had so many allergeries and finally found a Vet that put him on this food and it worked for my baby so great! Anything else would just break him out so bad and he was constanstly taking shots for alleregies. Thank you from my little Jake.

A diet that works!
My dog's food allergy symptoms decreased 100% after being switched to this diet. After testing we knew we were dealing with food allergies as well as environmental allergies. This was the easy choice. he loves the food and i do not need to worry he is getting something he will react to.

This food saved my dogs life!
My min pin, Bently, has severe allergies. I tried EVERY prescription diet on the market and only found one that my dog can eat without getting hot spots and itching. That food is hills z/d! He went from looking horrible , thin hair, sores and itching to having a beautiful coat almost overnight. The transformation was amazing! He loves the food also which is a blessing! I am sure I would have had to put my dog down because he was miserable! I am just so thankful hills makes a food for my baby, that he does not react to! Thanks science diet!

This product has save me money in vet bills.
The z/d Ultra Allergen has helped my cocker spaniel who has all kinds of allergies. It is food that I can trust, it maybe a little more expensive than others but it works. The coupons also help.

Great for food allergies
It's been a great relief for my Schnauzer who has experienced food allergies.

So far so good
Our 8 year old Maltese developed a skin disorder in the past several months. When antibiotics and medicated shampoos didn't fix the problem, our Vet suggested Hills z/d.
It's been about a month that he's been on this product and while results are to be seen, our Maltese's reaction is positive. He likes the taste and we're not seeing any new sores.
The product is expensive but if it's the cure...who cares?
Of note, don't be surprised if your dog's regularity changes once they've gone on the z/d.

Dogs enjoy the taste
I have two dogs on the z/d formula and both gobble it up and can't wait for the next meal. The smell is pleasant and the dogs seem to be doing well on it.

Good food for my dogs allergies. Expensive though
Expensive food. Wish it was cheaper and available at pet stores.

This product helps with Allergies
Our dog had skin allergies and digestion issues. She was adopted from the shelter and had issues. Our vet
recommended this food and it really worked to help with
her skin issues and and digestion. It is a little pricey but
it is cheaper than having to take her to the vet for medication
due to skin or stomach issues!

I use this product because my vet recommends it and my westie has terrible alleries.
Every time I go to a pet store and discuss nutrition and alleries I hear I am feeding my westie the worst possible food. This leaves me with a great deal of confusion because I want the very best for my pet.

Love this product!
My dog take's the dry, wet and the treats. We tried to change but he love's the z/d product and his coat is so good with it!

my dog has digestive issues
My dog has digestive issues that have not been completely diagnosed. My vet had me try Hills Z/D and my dog's digestive have greatly improved. Hopefully he will be completely normal after being on this diet for a while.

Our pup is a new woman!
We battled skin bumps, gnawing at her paws and hinder, scratching her ears, antibiotics, steroids, benadryl, different shampoos, food after food, and finally found a vet that suggested we do a food trial with z/d....before he would refer us to an allergist. Knock on wood, but it has made all the difference in the world for our pup! No more bumps, her coat is silky, she rarely gnaws or scratches. She poops once a day and it is much softer, but vet says that's fine. No allergist for us!

Helped with allergy licking
My shih tzu began licking her paws excessively and our vet thought she might be doing this because of allergies and wanted to change her to this product . We've been using it about a month and the licking has decreased tremendously. There is still some, but hopefully this will be our total solution!

Great for dogs with stomach problems/allergies
I have been using this for my dog that has stomach issues. It is the ONLY dog food that does not cause her distress. I wish there were more coupons available for it or the price could be reduced.

My dogs love this!
We have three rescue dogs, one of which has a huge variety of allergies. If I put dry food down it's impossible to guarantee the allergy dog won't eat the forbidden food--so I buy nothing but allergic food. The Prescription Z/D is the only food she absolutely loves but the bonus is that the other two love it also! It's the first food they go for and the first bowl they empty. Love this stuff. Sure wish there were more coupons available because it's expensive.

This product helps with skin allergies.
I really like this product. My pug suffers from severe skin allergies and this food helps.

Not surprisingly, our female Lab mix has a very sensitive stomach; z/d Ultra is the only thing we've found that she can consistently eat without getting sick (and even then it's hardly foolproof, as anything from a Cheez-It to a leaf in the yard can cause problems for days). We didn't know she had this issue when we got her, and I won't give her up just because she has a bad stomach, but it's not much fun and z/d is the only option we know of that offers any relief.
That said, if we could find a less-expensive brand for her, we'd switch in a heartbeat. Honestly I find the price on this stuff ridiculous. I know that you have to pay for quality and I appreciate that it's available, but spending over $1,000 a year on dog food is beyond anything we ever expected. Incidentally, having to spend that much on food has reduced the amount that we've been able to budget towards other veterinary care, which sucks but is our reality. I thought that signing up for the website and printing out coupons would help, but it turns out that's only a one-time offer and is basically useless.
Anyway- I would only recommend this as a last-ditch option for someone in our situation, but the cost would keep me from recommending it for any other reason. I have no problem with companies making a profit, but I get a pit in my stomach every month when I have to go pick up another bag, and I hope at some point Hills will either drop the price tag a bit or someone else will come out with an option that's viable for our dog.

Science Diet z/d Works for Dogs with Allergies
My vet recommended Science Diet z/d over a year ago for my adopted dog who has multiple food allergies and skin conditions. It is the only food he can eat without any adverse reaction. I wish the price was less, but this product does seem to reduce the number of vet visits.

I would like to buy a larger bag than 25lbs but I can not find one on the site.

The best dog food ever!
My bichon developed a food allergy at about 8 years old. I had fed her a high quality lamb and rice food since she was a puppy and suddenly, she began vomiting it up. I tried a variety of other foods which also caused vomiting. Her veteranarian finally suggested the dry Hills Z/D Ultra - not only did the vomiting stop immediately, she absolutely loves this food to this day! This food does cause looser stools, so I add a tablespoonful of pure pumpkin purée to each bowlful, which helps firm the stools.
I am very thankful for this dog food and my 12-year old Pearly May is too!

CANINE Z/D DRY
My one dog has constantly had GI issues. Never could figure out quite what was wrong with him. Finally we decide to do a food trial and he is 100% better!! Now he only has GI issues when he gets into my other dogs food. I absolutely love this food!

Seems helpful, but prohibitive cost
In the last year, my healthy Lab/Pointer began having acute GI episodes-heavy drooling, some vomiting and bloody diarrhea. Lab tests ruled out major possibilities. Ultrasound showed thickening in the intestinal tract, so we are going with food allergy. We've just transitioned from I/d to Z/d. It is honestly too early to tell....his stool is less frequent, but very loose- unlike his "normal" pattern. I'm trying to be patient and hope he will stabilize on Z/d. It frustrates me that people with modest means have no recourse when their beloved pet needs this type of food. I think Hill could go a long way in public relations if they developed a program for qualified lower-income people to qualify for a price break or even a rewards program (buy 10, get one free). We are likely going to be customers for our pet's life.

This product has helped tremendously
My Golden Retriever, Rocky, without a doubt, is the most expensive pet I have ever owned. I love him to pieces. He is fortunate that I have pet insurance. Lucky for us there is Hills ZD Ultra. Now he is a happy, thriving 4 year old now. He has been on it for approximately 2 years. He was on several other diets that did not agree with him. He can’t even stomach chicken, poor guy. So we have the Hills non allergenic treats too. I don’t know what we would have done without it! Thank you Hills!!!!

I didn't even know...
My poodle suddenly developed alergies and we were frantic to try to find something he could eat that would not make him itchy and miserable. We went through many food trials eliminating ingreadents one at a time to no avail. My vet recommended that we try the Z/D and we did and his skin started clearing up immediately. He now eats the canned, dried and the treats.

Top of the line!
As a veterinary professional, I understand how crucial it is to feed your pet the appropriate diet. Seeing clients day in and day out who insist on feeding "organic, grain-free, raw, etc" diets drives me crazy because I see the damage it does to their beloved pets.
This food is great for food allergy dogs (and no it is not the same as over the counter "allergy" diets because the machines are cleaned and sanitized for hours before production begins ensuring no cross contamination plus the protein is hydrolyzed). My "allergic to everything" mutt has always been itchy because she suffers from food and environmental allergies. Even D/D was making her itch, though not Z/D! It's phenomenal.
I absolutely love, trust, and stand by Hill's 110% because their foods are developed by nutritionists with the appropriate credentials.
