Hill's® Science Diet® Adult Sensitive Stomach & Skin
ZD not as palatable as it once was for my cats
I feed my cats ZD because it does not contain any of the ingredients which trigger my cats' food allergies. Recently they have not shown the same enthusiasm for eating ZD as they have in the past. I have changed their food bowls and rearranged their food station, hoping that might make a difference. The pellets seem to soften rather quickly, making me wonder if the cats are reacting to ZD the way I would to potato chips which are no longer crisp. I have cut back on the amount of food they are given to 1/6 of a cup when the dishes are virtually empty. Giving them any less seems inane. Since there are no other cat foods my felines can tolerate, I don't have the option of changing to another product. I wish I had a more positive review for ZD.

My cats love this food, one of them gets an upset stomach and this food really helps the problem.
Great food! My cats love it and one had stomach issues but not anyone after eating this food. I keep both of them on this diet as its easier than trying to feed each one a different type.

Makes for one content cat
We had shopped around for a cat food for about a year and found most brands didn't sit well with our cat. Overall health, he was just okay. We noticed, however, his litter box use wasn't - to put it kindly - consistent. Either his food wasn't meeting his dietary needs, or it wasn't working for him. We tried Science Diet Sensitive Stomach and within the week we could see he was much more at ease. Going on a year and a half now, he is happier, his coat is softer and the litter box problem has been no more. He loves the food. Every new bag we bring home, he is all over us with meows, purrs, and leg rubs until we put the bag down so he can nuzzle it with love!

Gracie was a Flame Point Siamese living in my daughter's back yard with her three kittens. She was starving. When I started putting food out, she always let the kittens eat first. I admired her for this. It took several days of sitting quietly before Gracie approached me and presented her rear end for a pet. Gracie, who had been shot three times with a pellet gun and had a sensitive stomach, stayed with the kittens in a spare bedroom for a long time to avoid conflict with my daughter's cats. When my circumstances changed, Gracie came to live with me. Hills Science Diet for a sensitive stomach was always the best food for Gracie, although I admit to trying to make a couple of changes through her long life.

All our cat will eat, no throwing up and maintain weight .
This is all our cat will eat now, she used to eat only Hairball control. As use has aged she needed this change and it really performs well keeping her healthy.

I tried many different foods for my cat that was always vomiting it wasn't from hairballs - tried that food along many other foods for a sensitive stomach. The formula was at first just for sensitive stomach but have had no issues with the change. I recommend this food to many people. The only down side with food is the price, but it works so I cant complain.

very good food
I have two cats one is 7 and one is 8 the eight year old had a problem with throwing up, my vet said she had allergies and wanted to put her on medications. I did not want that. I happened to be talking to a lady while we were waiting for our cars and we started talking about cats. She had the same trouble with her cat and she put it on the sensitive stomach and skin and never had any more trouble. I tried it and low and behold no more throwing up, It is the greatest cat food. Thank you Donna Rabideau

My cats love it!
My cats (all four of them ranging in age from 3 to 13) all love this food. If the bowl gets empty, they just stand around and stare at me.
The only downside to it is the price........wish it were cheaper.

Our cat has a sensitive stomach causing him to get sick. Since we switched, he has only been ill 1 time!

What A Difference!
I have an old cat. For many years now, she has had issues with diarrhea, vomiting ..never in the litter box and she would literally eat her fur off until she was bleeding. It was horrible. I took her to the vet to no avail. I was so close many times to having her put down thinking she was in pain from intestinal cancer perhaps. I decided to try Science Diet specifically for stomach and skin. She is a new cat. There is NO vomiting, NO diarrhea and she uses the litter box again. Her fur has grown back and she doesn't look sickly. After all that, good food was all she needed. Its incredible! Thank you!!

Sensitive stomach for vomiting
After watching my cat vomit most meals undigested for five years, I bought Hill's Science Diet Sensitive Stomach, dry. She eats it right up and she has only vomited once-- and that food was nearly digested. I am just sorry I didn't try it earlier. I would highly recommend this product for any cat who vomits directly after eating -- after checking with your vet, of course.

The only food our cat eats
We started with Hills Science Diet Adult Optimal Care dry when we adopted our cats because our vet recommended I--our cats always enjoyed it. Later, one of our cats developed allergies and itchy skin, so we switched to Hills Science Diet Sensitive Skin dry food--our cats continued to eat a lot of it as usual. Recently, we worried about Hill's decision to combine the sensitive skin and sensitive stomach types, but the change went fine. Our cats love this food. Our one cat won't eat anything else (wet or dry). I can't tell whether the food actually helped our other cat, because she also gets allergy shots, but I do feel good about treating her more gently with this food.

Appearance and size good
Good texture, size of pruduct is very good, Packaging is convenient and choise of bag sizes are good options.

Both of our cats enjoy the taste and we like the nutrition it affords them
We will always feed our cats this product, but since we are both on Social Security, it is a high expense for us.

Please split the two back out the way they were
I have been giving my cats Sensitive Stomach for several years. My 14 year old cat had her annual checkup with complete blood work about 3 weeks ago and they could not believe how healthy she was. I have had her since she was born as I had her mom (she passed on a few years ago). I swear by Science Diet and have always given it to my cats. As they got older I had to switch to Sensitive Stomach. About a week and a half ago I went to the pet store to get the food and noticed the combination. I thought it would be good since my 14 year old now has allergies and has to get allergy shots. Well, the smell of their urine and feces is so awful. I am hoping I can find some of the Sensitive Stomach only food today and get rid of that other bag. Please please reconsider keeping Sensitive Stomach only on the market.

This product is new
I am happy that you now have a combined product for sensitive skin and stomach. Before, I would purchase two bags, one sensitive skin and one sensitive stomach and mix both together.
Recently though, I asked an employee of the store where I buy the products and was told that sensitive skin and stomach is really the same ingredients as sensitive skin and I don't need to buy the new combined product. I would like to hear what you have to say about this.
I have been using your products for more than 10 years. Thank you, Cats

Only Brand Picky Cat Will Eat Without Coughing Back Up
Our kitten arrived to our door April 2001 and she has been eating Science Diet Sensitive Stomach since the vet recommended in 2002 when she kept vomiting all over the house. She is an indoor scaredee cat classic tabby and loves the flavor and nibbles all day on this food. Thank you Science Diet for your research and product because our cat remains a Science Diet cat because she is still active and her coat is beautiful. She is almost 13!!!

The product is excellent for our cats of all ages.
Our cats like the kibble size. There is not much we do not like about it. Our cats are active, alert and their coats are shiny not dull.

My vet has recommended this product for my cat. It has been of great help.

It helps his coat. It helps him to not throw up. I only wish it was grain free
It's a very good dry cat food. I just wish Hills could make it grain free.

I love the informative lable
Not to long ago we found out we had a kitty with severe stomach issues. After trial and error I ended up in the pet store one day reading labels. And after about a half an hour ( the pet shop staff probably thought I was nuts) I finally decided on Science Diet, Sensitive Stomach, it has worked for our little girl! She stopped most of her throwing up, and she has no problem digesting. she loves the taste! The first time I put it into her bowel she nearly climbed over me to get to it :) The only problem we have is trying to keep the other cats from eating it for her!

Has helped by cat Madison with his IBS
My vet recommended that I try Science Diet to help relieve my Cat Madison's Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Since taking it, my cat Madison seems to be throwing up less and not having diarrhea for the last month. It has definitely helped.

The product is great
I've tried different types, hairball, etc and the sensitive stomach seems the best for them -they are indoor cats and
it seems to help. I do change to another type, but always stick to Science Diet.

Only food my cats can eat!
I have tried many other sensitive stomach foods and this is the only one that my cats don't vomit on. They have a healthy weight and coat as well.

Excellent for cats with food allergies
I highly recommend this product. A couple of months ago my 11 years old cat developed food allergy to chicken with consequently weight loss, hair loss and vomiting and diarrhea everyday for weeks. We tried science diet sensitive stomach and until now the symptoms have remitted and her hair is shiny.

THIS PRODUCT HAS AGREED WITH MY CAT.
I USE THIS PRODUCT AND CD FOR MY OTHER CAT.
THE CD DIET HAS REALLY HELPED MY MALE CAT.
HAS REALLY CUT DOWN ON MY VET VISITS.

Keeps the sensitive tummy happy!
My 13yr old cat has been on Sensitive Stomach for years. Recently, I tried to switch him to a different formula to save a few dollars. His stomach problems immediately began again. As soon as I switched him back to Sensitive Stomach, his tummy settled again & he hasn't been sick in well over a month.The few extra dollars is well worth it to keep his stomach happy. He's also got one of the best coats I've seen on a senior cat, & has the energy of a cat a decade younger. I would never dream of trying to switch his food again.

Only Brand I use
Tried a few other brands for my 7 year old cat Pixie, This dry
food is the only brand that he will not throw up! I like it because its the best quality & So good for him to get the nutrition he needs as he has had a sensitive stomach since
he was about 2ys., I won't use any other brand

Cat loves it!
My cat has a very sensitive stomach. This is the only food she can tolerate.
October 26, 2013
My cat developed a sensitive stomach around age 7 (she just turned 11), frequently vomiting all her food & losing weight. She'd been on Hill's Adult Formula since age 5. I saw this formula and tried it. She liked it & vomited less. I've been mixing 3 Hill's dry formulas together for 3 years for variety & each primary function: Sensitive Stomach, Hairball & Optimum Care. She loves it, maintained her weight and rarely vomits hairballs. Her coat is shiny, and her teeth are clean. Great combination !
