Product Details

Allergies are very irritating. Itching isnt cute. Indigestion is to be avoided at all costs. That is why I count on Hills Prescription Diet z/d Canine Skin & Food Senseitivities Canine Dry Food for my pets, designed by veterinarians for the diagnosis and nutritional management of food allergy and food intolerance in dogs. Also known as adverse reaction to food, this condition presents potentially serious problems that can result in sensitive or irritated skin, coat and ear conditions or even gastrointestinal upset. Most reactions occur because of an allergy to beef, dairy products or wheat. Prescription Diet z/d Canine Skin & Food Senseitivities food for dogs is formulated with Hill's Hydrolyzed Protein System of highly digestible proteins that minimize the chances of allergic reactions to food. This process breaks down intact animal proteins and virtually eliminates the possibility of an adverse reaction to food. Highly digestible carbohydrates and fats help reduce gastrointestinal workload; while increased omega 3 and 6 fatty acids help nourish the skin. Added antioxidants control cell oxidation and promote a healthy immune system and skin barrier function. For More Info Click Here: www.petfooddirect.com/Brand/Hill's-Prescription-Diet

my dog is allergic to every meat protein i have tried him on! this includes chicken, beef, lamb, venison, and whitefish. i gave up because at this point the only ones left were kangaroo, eel, and a rodent from australia! i was sure i would get the same reaction! i found ultra z/d and haven't had the need to try anything else!the itching is gone and the hair is back after less than a month!

Not surprisingly, our female Lab mix has a very sensitive stomach; z/d Ultra is the only thing we've found that she can consistently eat without getting sick (and even then it's hardly foolproof, as anything from a Cheez-It to a leaf in the yard can cause problems for days). We didn't know she had this issue when we got her, and I won't give her up just because she has a bad stomach, but it's not much fun and z/d is the only option we know of that offers any relief. That said, if we could find a less-expensive brand for her, we'd switch in a heartbeat. Honestly I find the price on this stuff ridiculous. I know that you have to pay for quality and I appreciate that it's available, but spending over $1,000 a year on dog food is beyond anything we ever expected. Incidentally, having to spend that much on food has reduced the amount that we've been able to budget towards other veterinary care, which sucks but is our reality. I thought that signing up for the website and printing out coupons would help, but it turns out that's only a one-time offer and is basically useless. Anyway- I would only recommend this as a last-ditch option for someone in our situation, but the cost would keep me from recommending it for any other reason. I have no problem with companies making a profit, but I get a pit in my stomach every month when I have to go pick up another bag, and I hope at some point Hills will either drop the price tag a bit or someone else will come out with an option that's viable for our dog.

    Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet z/d Ultra Allergen-Free Canine Dry Food:

    My pug Lily has had terrible skin issues her entire life. She was getting sores and blisters in between her toes of her paws, in her folds and on her private areas and butt. Also , had constant ear infections and was miserable half the time. We switched her to ZD 4 years ago and it all ended. She hasn't had a sore since and has only had the occasional ear infection. She likes it, granted there isn't much food she does't like. We started adding a large spoon full of the canned ZD to her dry last year, just because she's old and deserves a little treat. She does still lick her feat a ton but we think it is more of a nervous habit than an itching issue. Great product and has saved a ton of money is vet appointments.

    Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet z/d Ultra Allergen-Free Canine Dry Food:

    My 5 year old boxer mix was having a lot of problems with his skin, it was very irritated, he had scabs/bumps all over him and hair loss around those bumps. He also was very stinky, even after a bath he would smell within a few hours. After visiting the vet, it was suggested that we try this prescription food for him, and after much thought (and some hesitation due to cost) we went for it. He LOVES it!!! With most other foods, he usually would smell it, walk away and wait a while to eat, but as soon as I fill his bowl with this food, he is eating it. It's only been a week since we got it, and his coat is so soft, those bumps and scabs are gone, and we gave him a bath last night and he still smells like the soap we used! He seems much more comfortable and happy too, which is a relief because I hated seeing my pup so uncomfortable. I highly recommend this food, even though it's pretty expensive. It's well worth the cost in my book though! I also want to note that we switched him to hypoallergenic treats too due to his allergy, so I'm not sure this would work as well if we were still feeding him regular treats. The only cons are the price and it's a bit smellier than other food we've given him. I'm still giving it 5 stars though, because the price doesn't matter considering the results I've gotten from the food.
