Complete Overview of Hill's Prescription Diet Z/D Skin/Food Sensitivities Dry Cat Food

Meet the Ultimate Cat Food for Sensitive Cats!

Skin and food sensitivities are extremely hard to manage without a change in diet. Even so, it is difficult to pinpoint exactly what your cat is getting an allergic reaction to. It can lead to a host of symptoms and issues that all stem from one problem - skin and food sensitivities.

Hill's Prescription Diet z/d Skin/Food Sensitivities Dry cat food is made to combat these issues with a unique formula that cuts down on any confusion regarding your cat's diet. This food is made with a single source of protein and a single source of carbohydrates. This way, you know what your cat is eating and lessen the risk of an adverse reaction.

The protein used in Hill's Prescription Diet cat food is hydrolyzed protein. The process of hydrolyzation breaks down the protein into amino acids with a low molecular weight. Hydrolyzed protein has a significantly reduced chance of being recognized as a protein by the body, and thus, your cat is likely to not react to the protein at all.

Does This Contain Soy Protein? What About Other Allergens Like Artificial Colors?

No, Hill's Prescription Diet cat food doesn't contain any soy protein. This food is also made without any lactose, as that is a common allergen in cats and dogs. The diet is a highly palatable kibble, and most cats enjoy the taste. And since your cat is likely to not get any allergic reaction from this, this food is more likely to be accepted by your cat.

To ensure that your cat is at the least risk of triggering an allergic reaction, Hill's hydrolyzed protein cat food is also made entirely without artificial colors or flavors. Synthetic dyes and flavors can trigger reactions and are often overlooked as sources of allergens.

Food and skin sensitivities often leave cats with recurrent infections that deal a blow to their immunity. Hill's hydrolyzed protein cat food also contains a blend of vitamins and minerals that boost your cat's overall health and immunity as well.

My Cat Has Lost His Appetite, and His Coat Looks Dull. Does This Help With Those Problems?

One of the symptoms of food sensitivities is gastrointestinal distress. Your cat can lose their appetite, feel nauseous, and feel discomfort after eating food. Many cats lose their appetite because their regular food is making them feel sick.

When you put your cat on Hill's single protein cat food, these symptoms will be reduced, and you might notice an increase in appetite! This cat food is also made with a healthy amount of natural fiber, essential fatty acids, and lots of vitamin E.

The fiber in Hill's hydrolyzed protein cat food helps minimize the gastrointestinal distress that cats with food sensitivities often face. The essential fatty acids and vitamin E help repair and fortify the skin barrier and nourish the skin and coat.

If your cat has been facing skin issues like rashes and coat issues like a dull or thinning coat, these ingredients will help reverse the damage done.
