Hill's Prescription Diet i/d Feline-Dry Cat Food - Drs. Foster and Smith
For years General Patton has been vomiting three or more times a week after eating his morning meal. He has eaten almost every cat food on the market and still he throws up and I clean up. The General loves to eat this flavor and cleans his plate every time without vomiting. The customer service has been outstanding and was very helpful in sending me to the right vet to get a prescription for the Hills Digestive Care i/d cat food. My vet would not write a prescription since the clinic did not carry that brand of cat food. Thanks customer service! I could not have done it without you!
Cats with or food intolerances may exhibit chronic intermittent diarrhea, vomiting, weight loss, poor appetite, or any combination thereof. The most basic way to treat these problems is with dietary modification. Some cats may respond to over-the-counter sensitive stomach diets. For others, prescription diets (such as Hills i/d, Purina EN, or Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Gastrointestinal) that are easily digestible, or limited-ingredient diets (such as Hills z/d or d/d, Purina HA, or Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Limited Ingredient) may be effective.

I am writing this review to let every pet owner know never to use any Hills product pet foods! It all started when I took my two-year-old Shichon Jasper to his yearly veterinarian examination. He received all of his vaccines and the vet told me he was a few pounds overweight and recommended that I put him on the Hills prescription metabolic diet. I purchased two cans of the wet food to start mixing it in with the grain free dry food I had been giving him for a year and a half. Approximately five days later he became deathly ill. He was profusely vomiting until there was blood in it and had diarrhea so bad. His stool was very mucousy and bloody. I took him to the vet immediately to have his stool tested to make sure he didn't have any parasite. Everything came back negative! They started him on a daily medication called ** for the diarrhea and gave him an anti-nausea injection. Unfortunately, the transition never worked out... Both cats began to have very loose stools and one cat began vomiting shortly after any attempt to eat. By the end of the transition period, both cats would sit at the food dish and cry for food, eat a few bites and walk away... Both still had very explosive loose stools tinged with blood and one cat was now also vomiting multiple times daily. After a few days of this, I called my vet who wanted to see the cat that had begun vomiting multiple times daily, right away. He received fluids, a b12 injection and an ultrasound. The doctor recommended that I discontinue feeding both cats this "improved formula" (which she was unaware of as well) immediately. My cats never ate another bite of the Hills "improved formula" prescription z/d, and have been thriving with zero incidents in the 7 months since I have transitioned them to a different diet.
