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!

Healthy product My Vet has my elderly cat strictly on this product with occasional treats and cat eats it regularly with no problem, tried wet y/d but she doesn't much care for, only drawback, very expensive cat food food compared to other types April 13, 2014
Took care of hyperactivity The YD formula helped my cat calm down a great deal with no medication. Her behavior was quite aggressive and the Y/D helped her calm down and be herself once again. The product did what it was supposed to and I endorse its use. March 22, 2014
Life saving product Sophie had very high thyroid levels and being an elder cat, she was getting very skinny and not feeling well. After two weeks on y/d prescription diet her levels fell into normal range and ever since she has been gaining weight and behaving like her old (younger) self. March 21, 2014
My cat actually likes this food. When my cat was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, we began the oral medication. Unfortunately the pill was very bitter and he would find a way to spit it out. I got a bag of this and he seems to like it, which I would have never guessed because he has always been so particular about his food. March 21, 2014
Thank goodnes for this diet!!! My cat was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. Before the y/d diet was produced, she had been on the tablets that are commonly prescribed for the condition. Sadly, she was one of those cats that reacted to her medication. She was reacting to the medication in the exact same way that the disease was causing problems. She would vomit and was becoming more anorexic. As soon as y/d became available, my veterinarian immediately switched her onto the diet. All I can say is AMAZING! She has maintained her weight, quit vomiting and eats the diet very well! I am just thrilled to no longer having to medicate her and yet see the definite improvement in her overall well being. She just gets it in her food now! February 28, 2014
