Feeding Guide

Daily Feeding Guide:

Important Feeding Information

  • Cover and refrigerate unused portion.
  • These amounts are a starting point only. Your cat may need less or more food to maintain proper weight. Adjust as needed. If you are unsure, ask your veterinarian.
  • With your veterinarian's approval, mix increasing amounts of your cat's new food with decreasing amounts of the old food over a 7-day period.
  • Prescription Diet formulas are available in a wide variety of dry foods and treats for your cat's unique needs, and canned foods with delicious flavors your cat will love. Supplementation with other foods or treats is unnecessary and may decrease the effectiveness of the food. When using with dry food, decrease the amount of canned food to avoid overfeeding.
  • Keep fresh water available at all times!
  • For best results, have your veterinarian monitor your cat's condition.

Lifesaver Was recommended by my vet for my 16 yr old cat. He'd had a major thyroid imbalance, was down to 8 lbs, lethargic, diarrhea, bad breath, dandruff. I went in to discuss having him put to sleep. The vet gave me a starter pack and after 1 month he began a visible recovery and will eat this Y/D exclusively for the remainder of his life. After 5 months he is chunky, full of spunk and back to his old self. This food was a way better option than a daily pill. Than you for providing this food! I rated it low on taste because he only eats it because he has no other options,not course he would prefer his old supermarket junk food. He does however LOVE the YD crunchies, October 11, 2013
Returned our senior cat to health Our 15 year old female cat was in very poor health weighing only 3 pounds and loosing weigh even though she ate constantly. When she was diagnosed with a thyroid condition, the Vet recommended Hills y/d Thyroid Health dry and moist food. After only a few weeks she was gaining weight and back to her old self. We adopted two new kittens and the 15 year old is keeping up with them and playing like a much younger cat. September 2, 2013
This products really works. I would definitely recommend it. I have an 13 years old cat that was 16 pounds. Then I noticed a fast and rapid weight loss. He was diagnosed with hypothyroid condition. After only two months of eating only the yd product there was a great improvement. I sometime add a bit of water to the canned food just for verity. He is now at a steady 10 pounds and all his blood work is great. August 13, 2013
good product very happy this product is working well for my cat and he enjoys it, thank you. September 24, 2014
Life saver My cat's health has imporved so much in one month, the vet was impressed, we hope to keep him comfortable and as healthy as we can for the months to follow, and even show the vet is wrong on his lifespan prodicition of only months,let's go for at least a year !

She's improving-Hills helps--I assume Nearly lost my 13 year old cat--medical alternatives were well, not alternatives. She's been on this in wet and dry food = she is principally better..though not perfect..remember the food does not have a medication in it. The diet is designed around a less than normal functioning thyroid. After three weeks my cat is heavier and stronger and returned to playing with her toy mouse. September 23, 2014
my alternative to the cat thyroid medication My cat likes the food best when I first open the can. I cover the remaining can food with tin foil and put it in a plastic deli type container with lid to seal it the best I can. It always begins to get very dry. I heat it a little in the microwave to get the chill out and I add a little water. She eats it but she is not thrilled with it. Please make this y/d thyroid can food to be more moist or not to dry out in this manner. She also eats the y/d dry food so she has a choice. She eats it a little at a time, because she is still hungry or there is no can food left in her dish, I want her to eat both. Once again she is not really thrilled. September 18, 2014
pet health Expensive food but does the job for my elderly cat with thyroid issues who is doing much better since using y/d September 14, 2014
