My pug Lily has had terrible skin issues her entire life. She was getting sores and blisters in between her toes of her paws, in her folds and on her private areas and butt. Also , had constant ear infections and was miserable half the time. We switched her to ZD 4 years ago and it all ended. She hasn't had a sore since and has only had the occasional ear infection. She likes it, granted there isn't much food she does't like. We started adding a large spoon full of the canned ZD to her dry last year, just because she's old and deserves a little treat. She does still lick her feat a ton but we think it is more of a nervous habit than an itching issue. Great product and has saved a ton of money is vet appointments.

My 9 yr-old German Shepherd dog developed allergies about 2 yrs. ago. My vet recommended trying the z/d to rule out food sensitivities. After the first bag, his chewing/scratching was greatly reduced with other measures taken. I tried a couple different dog foods after that and his scratching/ chewing returned. Now, he is back on the z/d but has been reluctant to eat it. Maybe too many recent dietary changes? Otherwise, the z/d was effective but very expensive. It was worth the cost to provide relief for my dog. It has reduced his frequency of stools from 2/day to 1/day. It sometimes seems difficult for him to have a stool.

Dog loves it!

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet z/d Canine Skin & Food Sensitivities Dry Food:

My rescue dog had horrible dry skin even with special shampoos and conditioners she was scratching all the time. My vet recommended this and once she switched, not more itching, no more dry flaky skin and she loves it.

Poor packaging

By Sandibeach

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet z/d Canine Skin & Food Sensitivities Dry Food:

I bought a 100 lb bag of this very expensive dog food upon recommendation of my vet. Trying everything to help my schnauzer from itching. I guess I can't fault the food not helping. But I do fault the bag for not closing tightly. It has a velcro closing which isn't very secure. The ants found it and invaded.

Great dog food, poor packaging

By Sue Ann

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet z/d Canine Skin & Food Sensitivities Dry Food:

When I buy this dog food, I great for my dog and the paper bag it comes in is great for the environment. Oh wait, no it's not, the packaging was changed to a plastic, non biodegradable bad for the environment bag. Just what I would expect from a world wide animal promoting company.

LOVE z/d! But the price...

By aharg

from Arkansas

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet z/d Canine Skin & Food Sensitivities Dry Food:

We absolutely love z/d by Hills. Our dog goes crazy over it every day, which he has never done before for any food. He's a little boston terrier who is gassy and frequently vomits in the middle of the night from upset belly. We tried several different types of food before we settled on this per vet recommendation. Our little guy is now 5 night vomit free and that is saying something! We are on a tight budget at the moment which makes the price a little frustrating since we eats like a cow. However, he's worth it and the price is *almost* worth it!

No More Diarrhea!

By Nana2017

from Kennedale, TX, United States

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet z/d Canine Skin & Food Sensitivities Dry Food:

Our Lab mix was adopted from a shelter. He was skinny and had diarrhea or at best very loose stools. Yuk!! Our vet recommended that we try z/d. The difference is amazing. He is healthy with no runny tummy with a beautiful shinny coat! We are careful to only give him very pure treats or use the z/d as treats. Duke loves the taste! The food is expensive but worth it! I highly recommend this food.
