Murfie has a food allergy and the vet gave me Hills Z/D prescription diet, has anyone tried it and if so what were the results?

Z/D is a diet made for allergies ... they split the proteins down the point the cats body does not know it is protein.... It is a short term fix ( ie you can see improvement if food allergies ) to a long tem problem... The food is NOT designed to feed forever but more for 8 week s to 26 week s ... I used it along time ago for a dog , aided me in knowing the issue was food allergies

If the food isnt meant to be fed on a long term basis what is she meant to eat afterwards if she is allergic to some food and the vet doesn't know what she's allergic to?

I used Z/D as my initial elimination trial for Damita. After 12 weeks - she was back to the "same old" routine. It did work well up until then. The vet then put her on D/D which worked well for awhile.

after the "trial " period you are supposed to add one new protein in per week or whatever the vet suggests ...

The question may not be 'will this work', more like what have you tried already, that doesn't work?

There are alot of premium foods available that are designed for cats with allergies. There is also the option of RAW, which even cats with certain meat allergies, can utilize, because there has been no breakdown done in order to process the food.

Raw still has to be digested ... thus broken down...

But yes for at least 2 of my 3 allergy kids raw was the best option..... one turned up allergic to several raw meats of the same that cooked did not cause issue.. YMMV

I had already started a thread about her allergy stating which foods I have tried (I used to rep for Royal Canin and Nutro when I worked in a pet store). She will not eat raw food, this is actually the first thing in ages she has enjoyed and ate readily
