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
THANKS!!!! This product has helped my cat so much! It made her thyroid level get back to normal and she started to gain back weight!.I will always by this food, Thanks so much for making my cat stay healthy! I can't live without her. August 28, 2014
My cat's health improved without medication Our 17-yr old cat, Willie, had lost three pounds and his coat was looking rough. After being diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, we put him on the y/d diet - both wet and dry. Although we were supposed to introduce it gradually to replace his other food, he ate it with such enthusiasm that we were able to make the changeover within just a few days. He is back to his normal weight, his coat looks great, and he doesn't need medication. I am so happy with the results of this diet. August 27, 2014
Great My 16yr old cat is doing much better after 2 weeks, eating well coat is getting better August 10, 2014
y-d Prescription diet does everything they say it will and he loves it too. Medication was way too risky for our 17 year old Spanky. We had tried it and his white cell count went down way too low after only a short period of taking it. We feared that our finicky old cat would not like the Y-D, but instead he loves it and after only 2 months, his thyroid numbers are normal! Thank you and kudos to Hill's for a prescription food that does everything it is supposed to do. August 3, 2014
Very dry and unappetising The canned food is very dry and I must add water to it to make it palatable for my cat. Even then, just feeding her a third of a can, she leaves a good amount of it in the dish. She was used to eating a 3ounce can of a non related food each morning and licking the dish clean, so I know she is not liking this food as much. The smell is not appealing to me, so maybe the same is putting her off too. She will need to be on this food for the rest of her life so I wish this product was more to our liking. She is also getting the same for her dry kibble and does snack on that through out the day. August 2, 2014
