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 5 out of 5 by from Soothed our dogs stomach Our dog tolerates this food better than any other food he has had in years including homemade chicken & rice with supplements tailored for his age and weight. We have seen a definite improvement in his ability to keep weight on and be comfortable. I would recommend this to anyone whose dog has food intolerance. Seeing is believing. After trying everything else and a weight loss of 7 pounds this ZD ultra canned brought up his weight and condition. For a dog that normally weighs 93 pounds it is expensive but at age 13 years we are happy and grateful to Hill's for this product. He loves the hypoallergenic treats too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Saved My Dogs Life My Maltese struggled with tummy problems from day one but when she was 12 y.o. the situation escalated where she was unable to consume Anything without suffering pain and diarrhea. Her weight went from 9lbs to 6lbs, she was on pain meds, at one point I was administering liquids through an IV a couple of times a day (hard for both of us!) and our vet visits were every other day for more than a month with many costly tests. I thought my dog was going to die. Then I saw a new vet who recommended the Z/D diet. Problems solved and my little girl is still here and happy and healthy as ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only food my dog can eat My dog has severe allergies to all meat products. Z/D is the only food my dog can eat without having a severe reaction. He gets sores and loses his hair over his whole body if given Any other food. He cannot even eat the other allergy food prescription or not the other companies make because they put ingredients like chicken fat, which he reacts to. Thank you science diet if it were not for your food my dog would live a very miserable life or not at all. Thanks Kim n Bentley!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Yorkie has to be on hypoallergenic diet due to her food allergy. I was instructed by my Vet to start my Yorkie on a special diet & I was given different brands to choose from. I chose 2 brands of special hypoallergenic diet in can form; 1 being Hills prescription z/d diet. After feeding both diets I find my Yorkie loves the Hills z/d diet over the other brand. I like the Hills z/d diet because it lasts longer in the fridge and the diet has a nice smooth consistancy. After using the product for over a month now my Yorkie has actually gained some of her weight back-she's now over 2 pounds again. I have also started giving her the dry z/d diet as a treat - I just wish the dry chunks were smaller so I didn't have to smash them up so she can eat them...but she loves it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
