Bean's thyroid has returned to a normal range with the y/d diet

This product is wonderful. My 17 year old cat was too old and sick for any other thyroid treatments. Oral medication did not work and had to be stopped - it caused intense itching above the eyes that resulted in sore areas. Bean was quickly running out of options. Since Bean has been on the diet (wet and dry food), it is obvious he feels much much better - his coat is shiny again, he has started to play again, and he looks better than most cats his age (per the vet tech at my vet's office). Bean has gained about 6 ounces since the diet. I feed Bean the wet y/d in small portions every 3/4 hours and always keep the dry food out for him. I have my best buddy back again and I am grateful!

The vet suggested starting with this food before moving onto the medication. There was no change in the T4 numbers after a month of use and the liver numbers were worse. My cat HATED the food and it was all I could do to get him to eat it. He is a tiny 6 lbs right now so we cannot afford for him not to eat. I tried the gradual switch over and was successful getting him to eat it about half the time. He also hated Hill's C/D when he was prescribed that several years ago. Additionally, the ingredients for the dry food, the one he actually preferred, are all by products and fillers. I do understand that many food sources have a lot of iodine therefore some things must be limited (fish), but why can't he have real chicken and not by products? The wet food has a better list of ingredients, however even though water is listed as the first ingredient many cans were the consistency of wet sand. I had to put water on it for him to even consider eating. My cats all enjoy food with gravy and this would have been much more successful if we would have had at least some gravy. I use another HIll's prescription food or another cat and this variety is quite good (as evidenced by the ingredient list that includes real meat). I know this is a relatively new product but it will not work if they are not willing to eat it and I am very nervous about all of the by products and fillers (mill run??).

Wet food

By Gfdsa

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet y/d Feline Thyroid Health Dry Cat Food:

In response to earlier post about cat only eating wet food from newly opened can: on second serving of the can, try making it soupy by mixing in some water. Works for my cat.

Smaller cans?

By K Ross

from Oklahoma, United States

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet y/d Feline Thyroid Health Dry Cat Food:

My 13 year old cat has been on Y/D food for a couple of years, and has now lost interest in the wet food except when I first open the can. I notice someone else has that same problem. A newly opened can interests her greatly and she will eat 2-3 tablespoonfuls, but after a can (well sealed) has been in the refrigerator for a day or two she loses interest. I would be interested in smaller cans if they were available.

Bill is alive and well after 4 years !

By Katrine

from John Day, Oregon, United States

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet y/d Feline Thyroid Health Dry Cat Food:

When I took Bill into the vets, I was thinking he was near death. He had always maintained a weight of 15 pounds, and was now down to 7. After putting him on YD , 6 weeks later he was 12 pounds, and he has maintained for almost 5 years. His tumor shrunk. Now I am seeing a growth in it again, and will take him in for a visit to doc Colleen, but I tell you, the Y/D has worked great for our boy ! We are on a fixed income and the coupons when we can get them really help, but if I have to go with out steak, I sure will to keep my boy Bill alive and well !
