was prescribed this food for my cat with diabetes. And long story short this was one of the reasons my cat died. This food contains ingredients like rice AS THE FIRST FEW INGREDIENTS! that is basically asking for your cat to develop diabetes and bunch of other issues since cats ARE CARNIVORES. don't buy this unless u want expensive medical bills or get rid of your cat. And please just spend that money on good high protein wet food.

Great food for our 18-1/2 pound cat and our 10 pound dietetic cat they both love it
by Bobcat on 09/21/2019
I love that this product is amazing for my diabetic cat, but I can't always afford it! Not a fan because of the price. I would buy it more often if they'd bring down the price

My cat was having issues with not keeping her food down. Hasn't had an issue since she started this.
by Dinty7 on 01/07/2017
Our cats share a can of the w/d with chicken and the dry food later. Once in the morning and once at night. They love their food and are happy, healthy cats.

I have a cat w/history of bladder crystals and he has been crystal free four years now since eating WD
by Misskitty4771 on 07/06/2016
Pet formally on ID due to daily vomit of Long Hair food. Needed more fiber so Vet switched her to WD. Enjoys and keeps down! Had no problem with transition:>
by gtvc on 07/04/2016
Switched to W/D without any problem. Cat had stones in the intestins and was switched to W/D.
by kayak on 06/30/2016
Recommended by my Vet. Totally did the job! I have two happy, healthy cats!
by Crazygardener on 06/29/2016
My cat used to throw up regularly, my vet recommended trying Hill's Prescription Diet I/d or w/d dry food. It definitely has helped and throwing up has stopped. Both of my cats love this dry food!
by AK72 on 06/29/2016
Way to expensive, but want to help my pet so I am stuck between a rock and a hard place

Cats digestive systems like this food and keeps them healthy.
by DebMar on 06/29/2016
One of my cats has a urinary issue while both have a small weight issue. My Vet suggested the w/d formula to take care of both issues. My cats love their food, they have been caught a few times trying to feed them selves. Urinary issues are gone and they have lost then maintained their weights for several years now.
by Dara on 06/29/2016
all 4 of my cats eat just this product and are very happy with it
by MRS LINDA on 06/20/2016
After trying almost every cat food under the sun (grain free, super expensive, best of the best, etc.) to no avail, my vet recommended the Hill's Prescription w/d for my kitty who had loose stools for the past year. Within a short period of time, she had her first normal bowel movement! It is hard to express the crazy joy I felt over this - I had almost given up. I know she is feeling so much better now as she no longer has the stinky gas or large volumes of mushy poo (sometimes tinted with blood). She has always received wet food with a dry supplement, but she is eating more dry now since she favors the dry w/d formula over the wet w/d formula. I have no problem getting her to eat the dry version, but getting her to eat the wet version is a challenge. I have tried mixing it with other food, covering it with other food (not mixing), sprinkling it with the crushed dry version, you name it - she just isn't a big fan of the w/d wet. I am still trying to get her to eat it when I can, but at least the dry has made a huge difference in her life and I am so thankful. If you have tried everything else and nothing is helping, ask your vet about this food. Even though the ingredients aren't what most people consider to be top of the line (wheat, rice, corn, etc.) they have the perfect blend of fiber to help bowel issues and make my kitty more happy and healthy and that is what matters to me. I am so glad I decided to give it a try!
by DDowns on 03/11/2016
At my vet's recommendation, I've been buying Hill's Prescription Diet W/D cat food for many years and want to thank you for changing the packaging to include the Velcro closure. It's much easier to use and I'm sure it helps keep the contents much fresher. Good work!
by NO NICKNAME on 01/26/2016
Hill's w/d diet for felines is by far my favorite diet! I've had several felines on this diet over the course of many years for various medical conditions. This is such a versatile diet and comes in both dry and wet formulations and also the new addition of the stew. My felines have always loved the taste of this diet and they have maintained very well over the years.
by purevax on 12/18/2015
We switched my cat to Feline w/d and his stool have never been better! He now acts like a "regular" guy and couldn't be happier! Thanks, Hills!

by belle13 on 12/12/2015
I love how this food helps keep my cat healthy and UTI free. The only downfall is the price keeps going up.
by AprilAnderson on 10/07/2015
My cat had digestive problems as a kitten which seemed to be caused by the corn in other cat foods. This is all she's eaten since then and is now 11 years old. She could benefit now from a diet food now as she is not very active.
by Nora11 on 10/02/2015
I like the new packageing much eaiser to zip close.
by topcat on 09/28/2015
This product has helped my animals with age/weight related issues. Stones in urine went down significantly after having been on the w/d food for a month or so. Vet bills are down, and cats seem to do well with the food.
by Meow24 on 09/28/2015
We have 6 cats. All love Hill's W/D. They sit in line for their portion each day. The quality of the food keep them healthy and happy. I wouldn't use anything else. It's a little disturbing that each time I buy more at vet, the bags get small and cost more. With 6 cats that can be expensive.
by Sherryl87 on 09/21/2015
My cats, once switched to this food no longer had urinary tract issues. I spend a lot of money on urinary tract medicines but just changing to this food made a world of difference.
by Diane45 on 09/16/2015
when I can get her sting only this food, her digestive problems do get better, but she doesn't seem to like the food, and it is extremely expensive. I don know if I can continue buying it for her. I wish there was a less expensive alternative.B
by bAsF on 09/13/2015
Good product but a bit expensive. Would be nice to purchase in a regular pet store instead of a vets office.
by dd55 on 09/09/2015
I have 11 cats and one of them was prescribed CD for bladder cysts. They all ate it but, a few of them were gaining too much weight as CD has a lot of fat in it. My vet switched him to WD which he said has some of the same qualities as CD. They all love this food even though no one has lost any weight nor gained any more. It's been 4 yrs. and we've had no bladder issues.
by Deb11 on 09/04/2015
When we adopted our two girls three years ago our vet recommended this food and it was a perfect choice for them both. It has a pleasant smell and they still run to their food dishes every morning anxiously. The food is more satisfying than store brands making it a better value also.
by SummerLily on 09/02/2015
Our clinic cat, Sly, has been on w/d for years. He still begs for that fresh, new bag to be opened for him. He sticks his whole head in there. W/d helps him stay slimmer than he would have been on another brand. Thanks Hills for the good quality, always safe to serve, food.
by Lou107 on 05/25/2015
With the most recent change to the size, my cats will not eat the product now. I've been using W/D for 7 years and my cats loved the small size when I first started feeding them this food. It was changed a few years ago to a size that cat's preferred which was slightly larger and they still ate it. Now, the size is almost double and they will not even touch it. It's disappointing that the size keeps changing.
by Ballen88 on 04/04/2015
I started feeding my cat w/d as he is very prone to weight gain and has a tendency to have soft stools. He has started losing some weight, and the quality of his stool has improved on w/d. He seems to like the taste, although he has never been a picky eater. I only wish it was less expensive and that Hills used less grains and by-products. The food has helped though.
by chocolatecat on 10/29/2014
The last bag of wd was full of crumbs and my two cats were not happy so I took it to the barn cats I care for. Other wise thenext bag was okay!
by mike10 on 09/30/2014
I have given this product to my cats for years. I have seen very good results in my cats when they have been on this food.
by jessie1 on 09/09/2014
I would recommend to my family and friends with pets
by Yang on 09/03/2014
I would not choose to give this food to my obligate carnivore. I feel brewer's rice should not be the primary ingredient in cat food. But it was prescribed by my veterinarian.
by NoName on 09/01/2014
Our cats have done very well with this food. It's a little pricey, but the online coupons really help.
by NinjasMama on 09/01/2014
This cat food is great for my cat and his needs but is quite costly.
by Bstoriale on 08/28/2014
my cat was having urinary tract infections and after my vet recommended putting him on this food this health issue seems to be resolved. I tried going back to his regular food but soon found out the infection was coming back. I will now only feed my cat this food. I have 3 cats and they are all now eating this food and seem to love the taste.
by TThomas on 08/22/2014
It works and they like it. But I think it's too expensive
by Nanceline on 08/09/2014
I have to buy this food, as the vet has made it a must. However, I think because we are a captured audience, there is no competition and we are very much overcharged.
by Ed99 on 08/04/2014
My cat Rocky was very overweight - 22 LBS. His Dr. recommended feeding him W/D. Lucky for us that Rocky really likes the flavor and crunch of W/D so we had no difficulty giving it to him. He is now down to about 18 LBS. He has more energy and is enjoying his new figure. We are grateful to Hill's that Rocky will live a much healthier life. Thank you
by TinyCatLover on 08/01/2014
I have had my cats on your RX products for many years. Myh first cat had bowl problems and the vet suggested W/D. She felt that she was allergic to the chicken byproducts in regular cat food and treats. that she was It seemed to help her. I have kept all of my cats on this product. We have an overweight cat who was on R/D but she got sick of it and the vet said it was ok for her to have the W/D. I have 3 cats and they are all on the W/D now. I feel that they will live longer with this excellent food.
by Susie1 on 07/21/2014
My Cat Inari Two years ago I thought Inari was going to die. She had been to several vets and had lots of test and diagnoses that just cost a lot of money and did nothing to help her. One vet put her on the WD diet. I am glad I listened to that vet. She has lived an extra two years now and is still purring away. I would recommend Hill's® Prescription Diet if you love your pet and want her around as long as possible
by Inari on 07/20/2014
My cat jax has been on it for several years recommended by the vet. agrees with him and he seems to enjoy it. he seems to like the new shape even better.
by Jax0225 on 07/18/2014
I am glad my vet recommended your product. My kitty seems to be doing quite well on it.
by Buddymom on 07/16/2014
So far as I can tell, this product is helping keep our kitties struvite crystals (one of our 4 had this problem which is why the vet suggested we feed it to them) at bay however they aren't necessarily losing weight, staying about the same. The price point used to be more acceptable than it is today. Not only was the price increased but to add salt to the wound, the package size was reduced. Sorry to have to say that, but it is true.
by Johnny925 on 07/15/2014
My cat does well with this product. However your customer service dept is lacking in its ability to satisfy customers, I had trouble printing out your coupon ($7 off-I have the correct software and had printed it on a previous occasion-this time the paper came out blank-and your system wouldn't let me try to reprint it). I called and was told there was nothing that could be done except to mail out $5 coupons-I was going to the vet same day and needed to purchase food-no help.
by catlover504 on 07/13/2014
This product has helped my cat so much, She has lost a lot of weight and has no other problems. I would defiantly recommend this product. I now have my second cat on it also to lose weight.
by wickedw43 on 07/11/2014
My cat is a pretty picky eater, but she loves this food. She is pleasantly plump and I am hoping this will help her lost a pound or two.
by Debby on 07/11/2014
Would recommend for cats with health issues, has helped extend our cat's life.
by Larry59 on 05/25/2014
Bandit, my cat, was on c/d which he really liked. In fact, he liked it so much, he started putting on weight. We switched to w/d and he even liked it better, but he eats more. He really loves it. Luckily, he doesn't eat anything else which makes us all happy campers. I highly recommend either w/d or c/d.
by SuzieQ66 on 05/24/2014
Our cats enjoy this food and that's half the battle. if they didn't like it we would really have a problem getting them to control their blood sugar.
by ybrunet06 on 05/03/2014
Product is a little high in price, but it works for my cat.
by BigEd on 05/03/2014
I brought my kitty to the vet because he had loose stools. I had tried a few different foods on my own, but the problem continued. When I brought him to the vet, he gave Sherlock a shot and started him on Hills Prescription Diet w/d Feline Low Fat-Glucose Management-Gastrointestinal (with chicken). Within a 2-3 days his stools were normal. I am grateful because Sherlock had loose stools for two months or more.
by Mary13 on 04/29/2014
W/D does amazing work for one of my cats Tigger. Without that food his weight is unmanageable!! The only thing I wish that science diet could manage to do is keep costs down.I have a very strict budget and it is breaking me trying to feed my animals. This is why I chose Fair for the value for the money.
by kittyluver73 on 04/25/2014
The bag is tough to seal. We transfer the food to another container immediately.
by Bellie on 04/21/2014
I have used in the past, CD and now WD & RD for my two cats. One is 11 and one is 6. They all love the food. The price is a little high especially when on a fixed income but I still feed them the WD and RD.
by Janice on 04/18/2014
My cat was diagnosed with IBS and does very well on this food. She loves the taste and has even put on weight.
by skimes44 on 04/17/2014
My male cat had crystals in urine causing blockage. W/D prescribed, and after 4 years there has not been a reoccurrence. The food is quite expensive, but worth it compared to potential vet bills.
by Bill01 on 04/07/2014
My cat transitioned from another dry cat food to the w/d without any issues. Our vet recommended this change due to a recent surgery my cat had needed for an obstruction. We had tried the wet w/d, but my cat did not care for it. Can you please allow another coupon? The cost of this product is pretty high. Thanks.
by kw1223 on 03/24/2014
Good product for pets with special needs. I would recommend to friends.
by snork on 03/22/2014
I have to see what it does to my cats glucose first. So far after a month it hasn't gone done very much.
by Daisydeere on 03/15/2014
My cat's health was at stake and eating this diet returned his blood levels to the normal range.
by Ragdoll on 03/04/2014
Both cats love it. We use dry for their meals and can just before bed as a bedtime treat.
by Priley on 02/25/2014
My two adult male cats loved WD immediately. They have not lost much weight, but have not continued to gain as they had on other foods. They both have thick beautiful coats and are very healthy. I work in a veterinary office and tell our clients of my boys and how well they have done on WD.
by Evelyn1213 on 02/21/2014
Our cats like this dry food. They have been on this dry food for a long time and have not tired of the taste. They also eat the soft food.
by Tigger1 on 02/17/2014
I have 1 cat that had UTI issues and the vet recommended c/d but then figured Sammy would put weight on so he suggested w/d. I have 5 cats and their ages range from 3 to 8 and all but one of them will eat the dry. None of them are too crazy about the wet food. Fortunately, Sammy has had no more UTI issues. I have always fed my cats Science Diet products as I trust the company very much.
by Deb53 on 01/09/2014
CAT ENJOYS IT. MY CAT IS VERY PICKY ABOUT WHAT HE EATS
by MARY28 on 12/28/2013
My cat can get fat just looking at an empty food bowl. The w/d has helped him meet and maintain a healthy weight. He loves the taste, though he probably loves just about any food.
by Catinkitts on 12/19/2013
My cats love this food! They only eat dry and will turn up their noses at over the counter food. They want Science Diet and they want it now! The only problem I have run into is that they like it too much and I think I will be switching to the new Metabolic soon. :-)
by momi2katie on 12/19/2013
I have several cats and they all love the w/d, they have had great success in losing weight with this product - I strongly recommend it!
by LauraMarie on 12/19/2013
It's been a good weight loss regimen for my cats who both have somewhat sensitive stomachs.
by Sebastian1 on 12/02/2013
I have one cat that needed to be on prescription dry/wet food per our Vet but since I have 4 cats I can't stop them from eating out of each others bowls. So they all eat the prescription food. I prefer it this way because it's healthier for them. It was an easy switch to make and I'm guessing it was because they like the taste because trust me my cats are picky eaters. My only complaint is I wish your company offered more coupons for prescription food. It's easy to get coupons for your nonprescription food but not prescription. It is very expensive to feed four cats on an all prescription diet.
by Kmokmo on 11/23/2013
I like the price and the fact that you have coupons for the dry food. CeeATee likes it that is what is important
by queenie on 11/22/2013
All my cats love this product even the ones that don't have to eat it.
by Chauncey on 11/19/2013
My two cats have been eating w/d for a few years. One cat is a short haired Persian with a flat face. The prior shape of the food, pellets, was hard for him to eat and the food would fall out of his mouth as he chewed. It would take him 20-25 minutes to eat, and he would get tired of eating before he finished the bowl. Now that Hill's has changed the shape to flatter disks, he eats his entire bowl of food in about 10 minutes. It wonderful!
by KimK on 10/16/2013
I prefer the pellets. My 2 cats will eat whatever dry food but I find the new product very messy. There is too much dust matter and leaves their dishes very messy. I have to clean them daily. The smaller pellets did not leave this mess! I'm going to another brand!
by Vern on 10/03/2013
It works well but slowly. Our male kitty is a Perfect now. All love the taste .
by Nickie on 09/21/2013
My cat is not especially fond of this product since you changed the shape of it recently. I cannot comment on the taste, yet I hope that it didn't change. My complaint is that it has gotten to be a very expensive product and you offer very few coupons / discounts; (I use a 17# bag in less than a month as I not only feed my cat but also the homeless cats in the neighberhood.# My pet is worth the cost of food that is good for him per my vet #he would prefer wet but he is at 21#s and wet food will just make him eat more. I have used the k/d per the vet but it doesnt work (my cat would rather starve).
by auana on 09/10/2013
This is a good product but very very expensive.However my cats need it so I will keep buying it.
by robertsanfilippo on 09/02/2013
Very good but very very expensive, however we need it for our fat cats
by robertsanfilippo on 09/01/2013
My cat(Rocky) love this cat food(WD), he has lost four pounds over the past 2 years also. We also give him a 1\6 of a can of the WD wet food, he wakes us up in the morning to be fed. No complaints from Rocky.
by Rocky46 on 09/01/2013
"Moonpie" has done well on this reduced calorie diet food, likes the taste. He has lost a few pounds. Doesn't have the urinary track issues as before. Thank you
by EllieO on 08/27/2013
have been using feline wd for 8 years for both my cats. Started using it because our older cat had crystals. Both cats like both flavors
by lalique on 08/26/2013
My vet prescribed this for my oldest cat, as she tends to vomit fairly frequently, as she gets older. Since my other 2 cats are slightly overweight and the fact that they all eat out of the same bowls, I switched all 3 over to this food. My oldest one has definitely shown marked improvement with how much she vomits and the other 2 eat this just as well as any other variety (although not seeing too much weight loss). Overall, I think this a great product - with my only negative being the high cost.
by 3kittymoma on 08/26/2013
After my beloved pet dog reached her ideal weight, she was put on W/d food and she loved it. It was great for her.
by Gigi4 on 08/19/2013
WD prescription has been very effective for my kitties urinary problems and also a great preventive for future problems. Also is excellent in controlling a healthy weight. I have used WD over 35 years and will continue using it along with other Science Diets excellent foods for all my 10 kitties.
by BevIe on 08/14/2013
My vet recommended this food after my cat suffered an impacted colon and numerous bouts of vomiting and dehydration. Feline W/D is the only food that my cat can eat without relapse. I'm thankful that this food keeps my cat healthy. His coat is shiny, his eyes bright, and he's full of energy, well, when he's not napping. ;)
by Slshows on 08/12/2013
My cat loves this food. Just the sound of the bag opening, and he magically appears. I know this food has kept my pet healthier. I want to prolong his life as much as possible and Prescription wd will help.
by smoosh on 06/29/2013
I have a newly insulin dependent 10 year old cat. Lovey really woofs down the w/d dry and canned varieties and seems to l-o-v-e it! Thank you for a product that is both good for her and, in her opinion, good tasting.
