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 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.

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.

Wonderful product

By sfinley321

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

My Shih Tzu had developed an allergy to the food I was feeding her. She had blisters on her skin, constantly licking and scratching so our vet advised me to try z/d. That was a little over 2 months ago and this food is almost a miracle. Her fur is regrowing, getting very shiny, blisters and red skin have disappeared and no more licking and scratching. Food is well worth the price.

Great product and taste

By Anonymous

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

my dog is very picky eater, i have gone through dog food where he wouldn't even touch it only when he got hungry. He's been fighting a staph infection for a year now, the doctor has tried antihistamines and steroids. he finally recommended z/d for food allergies and my dogs skin cleared up almost over night. he still has a little bit but within the week most of it was gone. his skin is now back to normal and you can see his coat looking nice again! finally a product that works! thank you hills! He's also on the canned food and he loves the canned food too, he'll wait at the fridge every morning for me to give him some of the canned z/d!

Expensive but worth it

By Peg1002

from Undisclosed

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

Our dog was experiencing a lot of stomach issues. After trying various things to resolve them, our vet recommended this food. Worked like a charm! He's been much healthier ever since. While it is very expensive, we figure the trade-off is less lab tests and vet bills, so in the long run we're probably saving money.
