z/d® Canine

Skin/Food Sensitivities

Food sensitivities and intolerance are potentially serious problems that can result in sensitive or irritated skin, coat and ear conditions or even gastrointestinal upset. Dogs that have a food sensitivity or intolerance, also called adverse reactions to food, typically experience an abnormal response to the protein in the food. If your dog suffers from adverse reaction to food, it is even more important to feed the right food.

Hill's nutritionists & veterinarians developed Prescription Diet® z/d® clinical nutrition especially formulated to support your dog's skin and food sensitivities. In fact, z/d is clinically proven nutrition to help avoid adverse reactions to food.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sensitive 14 yr old Shiba going the distance with z/d. My 14 yr old Shiba Inu has developed sensitivity to her regular dry food. So, to keep her from vomiting/diarrhea seesawing our vet suggested the z/d canine Ultra, and it is working for her. We give her 4 small meals per day so that the food does not overwhelm her gastrointestinal system. I mix it into small bits with a little white rice, a tablespoon of firm tofu, and a little water so that she gets her food and a gravy-like fluid. Sensitivity at old age takes longer to adjust so she gets about 1 can per day, spread out over a 12 hr. period. It is good to see her chipper and comfortable again. January 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product The love of our life, Primo, is a 91/2 year old Cock-a-poo. He has always had serious food allergies and we had a very difficult time when he was a puppy finding a food that agreed with him. Our veterinarian suggested the Hill's Prescription brand products and it has been the right answer - he no longer has a negative reaction to his food. Now, he looks forward to meal time and he LOVES his food! Thank you for such a wonderful product. July 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog loves ZD. Finally found something my Shih Tzu enjoys eating and it has put an end to his constant itching and chewing himself. It is expensive but it works. After having ZD he is willing to then eat his dry food. September 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This has really helped Zoey with her allegies to food MY dog had issues and the vet, suggested this food along with medicine. She has got better and was switched to dd. She has really improved and the food was great for her, but I was feeding 3to 4 cans a day for 3 months. She is a lab and requires a lot of food. It is quite expensive for a long term treatment . I would like to keep her on it but when she gets better I will have to switch .I am buying 2 cases a week for her and that is expensive , yes this is helping and if my income was unlimited I wouldn't have a problem with the price. I did print the coupons from the website but that is a one time thing. Other than being expensive for long term care I see that the food really is helping and she likes it. September 3, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by FINALLY NO BITING NOR ITCHING!! My shih-tzu, Sookie, 5.5 years developed severe itching and biting over the last year. Her skin became very irritated and flakey. I tried special baths and shampoos. She began smelling like she lived outside all the time-although I was bathing her. I initially thought she got a bad episode of "fleas" that started it, but it just never stopped. Finally, i took her to the vet. He prescribed this after giving her some steroids to wean off of and a special bath than would numb her scratched, raw areas. THIS IS THE BEST DOG FOOD! She is always so picky and thought she would never eat this. It's consistancy is that of thick refried bean mash. SHe even eats the dry food (I only wish it were the tiny bites like the Science Diet). I also make her treats with it. I just slice it up into chunks and put it in the oven on 305 for about 20 min. SHE LOVES THEM! Thanks so much for the great food! It is expensive, but Ive made sacrifices so she doesnt have to be miserable! I just wish there were some coupons!! Thanks again! January 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by We have been using the zd canned food for years This product has been keeping our family dog (Mac)alive for years. We appreciate the product. Besides the dry food we also use the canned and the treats. Thank you so much. September 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by No More Diarrhea Buddy started having unexplained diarrhea that lasted almost 6 months without any relief. Our vet had us try many different things and many tests were done. it was finally determined that he most likely had a food allergy so he was prescribed a Z/D diet (can & dry). His diarrhea stopped immediately and hasn't returned in 2 years. Buddy was a very picky eater before (maybe the other food made his tummy hurt?), but has never once passed up a Z/D meal. He gobbles up this food like it's a steak dinner. Since he is on such a strict diet it was hard finding a treat that wouldn't mess up his stomach. We decided to try and bake the Z/D canned food and had great results. We just slice up the can food and bake at 350 on each side for 16 minutes. The smell is terrible, but these make really great treats for a dog with a sensitive stomach. Our other dogs love them as treats too! September 3, 2013
