Feeding Guide

Daily Feeding Guide:

Important Feeding Information

  • 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 canned food, decrease the amount of dry food to avoid overfeeding.
  • Keep fresh water available at all times!
  • For best results, have your veterinarian monitor your cat's condition.
  • To prevent suffocation, keep this plastic bag out of the reach of pets and children.

Controls her hyperthyroidism without any medication. Excellent product. My cat was quite aggressive growling at night and drinking a great deal of water. The Vet was talking radiation and then I learned of YD formula. After a couple months on this food her thyroid labs returned to normal. I highly recommend and avoided having to administer pills which would have been a mutual nightmare. November 22, 2013
easy transfer from old food. Thrived well on y/d. Ate y/d as his meal and also used it as his treat, since he could not have any other food. no more pills to buy or forgetting to give them twice a day. October 1, 2013
Bean's thyroid has returned to a normal range with the y/d diet This product is wonderful. My 17 year old cat was too old and sick for any other thyroid treatments. Oral medication did not work and had to be stopped - it caused intense itching above the eyes that resulted in sore areas. Bean was quickly running out of options. Since Bean has been on the diet (wet and dry food), it is obvious he feels much much better - his coat is shiny again, he has started to play again, and he looks better than most cats his age (per the vet tech at my vet's office). Bean has gained about 6 ounces since the diet. I feed Bean the wet y/d in small portions every 3/4 hours and always keep the dry food out for him. I have my best buddy back again and I am grateful!

It really works My hyper thyroid cat had been in a shelter for weeks: seemed ok and pretty mellow but, eventually -- after some bizarre behavior and then some tests--turns out he is hyperthyroid. The kibbless are all he gets because he doesn't like the canned food. My second cat is not hyperthyroid but the vet says it's OK for her to eat the same thing and she's thriving. The problem is finding it in a store-- THAT'S WHY I ORDER ONLINE WITH YOU! great service,, pleasant and knowledgeable agents. Thank you July 9, 2014
overall good My cat was diagnosed with a thyroid condition, cats typically don't like change but my girl adjusted and it has stablized her condition. I also feed her the can version of y/d as well. Although, I use coupons printed from the Hills website - I would like to see if there are any other cost savings for this product. Are there any recommended treats for cats with thyroid condition? July 2, 2014
my 18 year old cat seems to enjoy this! YD was recommended by my VET for our elderly cat who has thyroid disease. June 27, 2014
Very Helpful for my Cat's Medical Condition I started using Hill's Prescrption Diet as recommended (prescribed) by my vet. It has made a drastic improvement in my cat! She is back to her usual happy self! The only issue I would say is she doesn't seem to like the taste. At first she refused to eat the food but started to once she realized she wasn't getting anything else. June 27, 2014
This product is a magic cure! Only a few weeks after beginning to eat this food (exclusively), my cat's thyroid level is now normal. I no longer have to worry about making the decision to subject my cat to surgery or radiation therapy . . . a great relief. June 26, 2014
