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.

Our 9 year old English Bull has had issues with loose stools on&off for the last 3 years. We have tried numerous dogfoods and supplements. Our vet recommended Hills prescription diet.

We switched to this brand 3 months ago.
Ever since, we have to clean him multiple times a day, his stools are very soft, greasy, extremely foul smelling, and black.

English Bulldogs are prone to intestinal issues and food sensitivity, but with other foods the soft stools were not daily.

The one pro for us was he has less gas.

Poor packaging

By Sandibeach

from Waco, TX, United States

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

I bought a 100 lb bag of this very expensive dog food upon recommendation of my vet. Trying everything to help my schnauzer from itching. I guess I can't fault the food not helping. But I do fault the bag for not closing tightly. It has a velcro closing which isn't very secure. The ants found it and invaded.

Great dog food, poor packaging

By Sue Ann

from Undisclosed

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

When I buy this dog food, I great for my dog and the paper bag it comes in is great for the environment. Oh wait, no it's not, the packaging was changed to a plastic, non biodegradable bad for the environment bag. Just what I would expect from a world wide animal promoting company.

LOVE z/d! But the price...

By aharg

from Arkansas

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

We absolutely love z/d by Hills. Our dog goes crazy over it every day, which he has never done before for any food. He's a little boston terrier who is gassy and frequently vomits in the middle of the night from upset belly. We tried several different types of food before we settled on this per vet recommendation. Our little guy is now 5 night vomit free and that is saying something! We are on a tight budget at the moment which makes the price a little frustrating since we eats like a cow. However, he's worth it and the price is *almost* worth it!

No More Diarrhea!

By Nana2017

from Kennedale, TX, United States

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

Our Lab mix was adopted from a shelter. He was skinny and had diarrhea or at best very loose stools. Yuk!! Our vet recommended that we try z/d. The difference is amazing. He is healthy with no runny tummy with a beautiful shinny coat! We are careful to only give him very pure treats or use the z/d as treats. Duke loves the taste! The food is expensive but worth it! I highly recommend this food.

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

The kibble size pellets are so small that our dog does not chew it. She just licks it up and swallows it whole. She can clean out her bowl in about 30 seconds or less. She can't eat anything else so she does not get to chew on anything except the special dog treats we can give her. It would be nice if they made a large dog size kibble that the dog would have to chew rather than just inhaling it. I see there are other large dog owners who would like to see the same thing happen. Hopefully the maker of this food will hear our voices and make a change. Even though we all may like this dog food for our dogs, it could still be made better. So just because we like it and would even recommend it to others, it could still use some improvement. So please don't ignore our voices.
