My cat LOVES both the canned and dry CD chicken food you make!
WhatÍs so valuable about Hill's Prescription Diet c/d Multicare Feline with Chicken Urinary Care Cat Food? Find out here:
My six year old cat developed a urinary blockage and it was suggested to use Hills CD. I used the wet food and then tried the dry CD for cats. My cat started losing weight/vomiting and was generally tired. He developed diabetes. His blood sugar was 555. Normal for cats is 104-240 I think. I just happened to look at the ingredients on the CD dry food and it had 35% carbs!!! My research began and found out cats should NOT be eating carbs as they are strictly carnivores. Long story short, I feed him a pure meat diet from a cat food you cannot find in the box stores. No more diabetes! It's been 5 months now and I still check his sugar once a month. No problems at all. His blood sugar is normal! He had tremendous energy and his coat is soooo silky. I blame Hill's Science Diet for this. What a racket!
All my other cats are on a high quality, mostly grain free, canned diet. I wish with all my heart this cat could be on that diet too (and so does she ) but the c/d is the only food that keeps her healthy.

What Is CD Cat Food For? - Pets
I have 2 cats who eat prescription Hills Science diet c/d, they split a can a day and get a bowl of dry food in the evening. Only one cat needs the Rx food but feeding them separately is not an option. Anyway, it is expensive and most days they barely eat the wet food. On a rare occasion they do but I throw out more than they eat. Curious to know if feeding just the dry would be okay? I have always done both wet/dry. The vet says they are designed to work together? Any insights would be appreciated.cats like dry food or the same reason kids like mcdonalds...the food is specially treated with a humber of highly scented high flavor products to make it both appealing and addictive, when in reality its doing a lot more harm than good and theres no REAL nutrition in it...So I carefully chose some canned foods to try and gradually went away from the c/d. Fast forward to several months later, and these two are doing great. NO urinary issues, NO litter box issues and NO crappy Hills c/d. Right now they eat one meal of canned turkey/chicken food from Cats in the Kitchen and one meal of freeze dried chicken from Stella & Chewy's. The latter is rehydrated with water for serving so they are eating an all grain-free wet food diet.My mind looks that the magnesium content of the c/d and thinks anything equal to or less than should be fine (Purina). It also tells me the .005% difference between the c/d and the friskies can't be enough to cause problems. Regular cat foods have .12% magnesium or more, if they even bother to list on the label how much they have.I took my cat to the vet when I found her urinating blood outside the litter box. The vet prescribed her three weeks of antibiotics (Clavamox), and a bag of dry Hill's Prescription Diet C/D that they sell on site. He also took a urine and blood sample. I took the antibiotics, but held off on the Hills food with the intent to do my own research. (Note, I also have a second cat, her brother, who the vet said it would be fine if they were both on the same diet, as they graze on the dry food.) I couldn't help but be hesitant also due to cost and wonder if they weren't in part quick to prescribe it because of making money on the sale. After reading a lot about cat foods and urinary tract infections I thought there must be a better solution.A week ago I started a new bag of C/d cat food. He wouldn't eat it at all. He again was vomiting horribly for over a day. He began to drink a lot of water and pee a lot. I took him to the vet. She gave him a shot for his nausea but it seemed to make him much worse. The next night we were in the Animal referral center (only place open 24 hours a day)... he could barely walk, had twitching, it was awful. His blood work showed all sorts of issues. Why the vet didn't test these things the day before I don't know.
