I have two adult Maine Coon male litter mates, Jamie and Titus. Jamie is average Maine Coon size, about 18-20lbs, whereas Titus is my micro Maine Coon, last weighing in at 5lbs 11oz. They are 4.5 yrs. While Jamie appears to have a cast iron stomach, poor Titus had been vomiting every night after feeding, since I got them, two mos ago. And I was feeding them good stuff, like Avoderm. It was horrible to watch poor Titus convulse like that, and throw up such a large volume from his tiny body.

So, I took Titus to the vet and his blood work was fine, so the doctor suspected that he just had a very sensitive stomach and prescribed this food. Well, it worked a miracle. Titus barely vomits at all anymore and has been able to put on a much-needed pound or so on his once bony little frame. When he did occasionally vomit thereafter, I traced it to the junk food cat treats I was giving them and stopped those right away. Now they eat Greenies natural cat treats, and as long as I don't give them too many, they never throw them up.

I'm extremely happy with this product, even though it is ridiculously expensive. I'm going to ask the vet if she can think of a suitable replacement that costs a lot less, as I am on a modest income. But it's nice to know that if such a product doesn't work, that we'll have this prescription diet to fall back on.

My cat Toby was suffering greatly from food allergies (we didn't know the cause at the time). He was constantly scratching all his hair out around his eyes, cheeks and mouth. Sometimes he even got deep gashes from his scratching, mainly around the face & eyes. Our vet treated him several times before deciding to put Toby on Hills Prescription Z/D cat food. It is very expensive (more than $6.00 per pound) so I have to feed Toby separately from my other two cats. Nevertheless, within 1 week of putting Toby on the Hills Z/D, he was no longer scratching and his hair was beginning to grow back. Three weeks later, he is still doing great and all his facial hair has returned. This food really turned the trick! Now I just need to find a cheap source for this prescription diet!

My kitty Boogah developed a condition that caused her to pull her fur out to the point of causing skin infections. Our Vet. Tried a few meds to stop her but but nothing worked. This had been going on for a few years. She started to throw up often and then started to have diarrhea like stools. Back to the vet and this time she gave her Vitamin B12 injections each week for 4weeks. She placed her on Hills science diet Z/D dry food. What a great difference this made. She no longer pulls her fur out and loves the Z/D science diet. She acts and plays like she did when she was much much younger. She will be 12 years old Sept. 9th.

While I haven't yet bought this ZD cat food from Amazon (I currently buy it from my vet, but will be moving soon and the new vet doesn't carry it)... I spent over $1000 when I first adopted my Xena cat trying to figure out why she was constantly vomiting and had diarrhea, even though I was feeding good quality food (I believe it was Natural Balance). Well, finally my vet suggested this food, and Xena has had a happy gastrointestinal experience ever since! It's been over two years now and she's not had one single bout of diarrhea. She also eats the canned ZD. Yes, it is expensive, but isn't your cat's health worth it?

I am giving this 3 stars only because they have been eating it for just about a week. I will update my post in a month or so(if I can remember to do so).

I just bought the 4 pound bag at my vet one week ago and it was $27.99. I think it was about $54 for the 8 pound. I have seen it advertised for $79.95 on amazon for the 8 pound bag. This it utterly ridiculous! Please keep looking for a better price.

As to the product itself, it is too soon to tell if it's helping my one cat with his inflammatory bowel disease. He's the one it was prescribed for. But I started giving it to my other cat to see if it would help his constant vomiting problem. I realized as I am writing this that he hasn't vomited once in the time he's been eating this food! I have been giving this to them for about six or seven days. They both like the taste of the dry. It was $2.49 for a small can of wet food. They really like it. It has the consistency of canned pumpkin.

I have a cat who had recurring rodent ulcer and this cured it when nothing else would. Yes it is disturbingly expensive but it is better than having the problem go unsolved and nothing else could solve it. She's been eating it for several years and has had no problems. Yes she would rather eat something else but she has gotten used to it.

Hill's Prescription Diet z/d Low Allergen Feline Dry Food

This item is advertized by Amazon for $46.00.
This price doesn't really exist for this product.
Amazon is using false pricing as motivation to promote themselves.
