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 Sensitivities 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.

We use this with our dog who has IBS. He is finally gaining weight and is beginning to make a difference in his digestion. Our dog loves the taste. We mix the canned with a little water to make a gray that we mix with the dry..

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

My pit-lab mix has had terrible skin allergies for the past 2 years, and this is the ONLY thing that works. I couldn't tell you why. I even tried giving her home-cooked chicken and vegetable meals and she still broke out in a terrible rash and was losing hair. After having her on the z/d diet from Hills she has had NO issues with her skin or stomach. Her hair has grown back and constantly gets compliments on how shiny her coat is. Only con is the cost, but it's worth it to not see her in pain/have to constantly take her to the vet.

Cleared up my pets chronic ear issues

By Debbie1001

from Laurens, SC 29360, USA

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

Ollie, my 2 1/2 year old German Shepherd had chronic ear issues that were being treated with cortisone shots and ointment for his ears. It had gotten to the point where he would start to whimper when I would reach for the ear ointment. Upon switching his food to ZD, his ear issue has resolved, his coat condition is excellent, and he is overall a much happier dog. An added bonus is that this is such a high quality food that you actually feed less that standard pet food. Ollie gives a resounding 2 paws up for the change the ZD has made.
