          Comments about Lysodren:

          These treats have saved our life! For nearly three months now, my 13- year old cat has been in and out of the hospital with inflammatory bowel disease. As a result, we've had to change his diet dramatically, and he does NOT like his new dry food, and can barely tolerate the new canned food. Since we received these treats, we've been crumbling them up and adding them to his food, his meds, everything we need him to eat, and it's been a huge success! A few times a day he also gets just the treats themselves, and I can't tell you how happy we are to see him eating -- and enjoying eating -- again.

          This hypoallergenic treat is a big hit!

          Comments about Lysodren:

          I have an older kitty with skin related allergies. She eats limited Ingredients wet and dry food. And of course for the inevitable pill it's important to have a treat that counts. She may try to ignore it just to show she can't be bought but they disappear quickly. Even her tormentor, aka, younger cat, loves to snatch them form her.

          Feline Hypo Treats

          By Kellyrus

          from South Carolina

          Comments about Lysodren:

          Our cat Gracie has food allergies and only eats ZD dry cat food. If she eats anything else, she breaks out in a very itchy rash. We also have a healthy little kitten who can eat anything, including treats that she loves. Our vet recommended Hypo Treats for Gracie. Now both kitties can have "cookies" when they are good. It's fun to feed the little heart shaped Hypo Treats to Gracie while her little sister gets her own treats! Thank you, Science Diet!
