    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product works well to keep our cat healthy I like that my cat can stay healthy by eating food instead of taking medication. My only suggestion is that you might also make this product in smaller cans since she will only eat 1/2 of the can at a time and only when it is freshly opened. She will not eat it after being tightly sealed and stored in the refrigerator. Even heating slightly in the microwave does not help. The veterinarian suggested mixing in low salt chicken broth or canned pumpkin, but that did not help. I feel like I am wasting so much food!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works but needs improvement This product has improved my cat's health. However, without going into a lot of my cat's health history, here's what we need from you: 1. Small portioned cans so our babies can get that "fresher" taste and texture each time, without having to refrigerate leftovers. They need this to make it more palatable, and we owners need this feature to make it more cost effective. 2. I understand the difficulty in having variation in the flavor, because of the precise levels of ingredients, etc., but with all of the advances made in cat food, surely there is something that can be done, especially for the price we are paying. 3. Specially formulated "treats" for cats would be wonderful. Thank you for letting me share my concerns. This truly is a great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Returned our senior cat to health Our 15 year old female cat was in very poor health weighing only 3 pounds and loosing weigh even though she ate constantly. When she was diagnosed with a thyroid condition, the Vet recommended Hills y/d Thyroid Health dry and moist food. After only a few weeks she was gaining weight and back to her old self. We adopted two new kittens and the 15 year old is keeping up with them and playing like a much younger cat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from She's improving-Hills helps--I assume Nearly lost my 13 year old cat--medical alternatives were well, not alternatives. She's been on this in wet and dry food = she is principally better..though not perfect..remember the food does not have a medication in it. The diet is designed around a less than normal functioning thyroid. After three weeks my cat is heavier and stronger and returned to playing with her toy mouse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helping to Make Morris Well I am using this product in conjunction with the dry food y/d. It is slowly working, and Morris is getting healthier. My only wish is that it were available in smaller cans. He eats it willingly on the day I open the can, but on "leftovers" days, he is not so enthused. I've tried warming it up a bit, and that helps, but I wish the smaller cans were an option.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 18 Yr Old Kitty Amazing results My 18 yr old kitty was diagnosed with hyperthyroid and elevated kidney values. The 2 go hand in hand with older cats. We started her in this diet about 1 year ago. Her blood work has improved so much that her elevated values were cut in half. Her T4 was 5.8 before the diet, and now is a steady 2.4 We get her tested every 6 months just to keep an eye on her health. She no longer vomits up her food and she is no longer losing weight. She hasn't gained any weight either, but she is pretty old so 6 lbs is good for an 18 yr old. She gave the dry food a try but didn't seem to eat much, so we switched her to the can and she eats every bit of it. It also helps her get more water into her system eating the can version. I also reccomend getting a pet fountain to help increase your cats water intake this will help keep flushing their kidneys and keep UTI's to a minimum. My cat is not on any medication for her issues only the Y/D can no treats, no hairball gels, just Y/D so make sure that's all they get and keep other pets foods from your Y/D kitty so the diet works the way it is suppose to. If you can do that then you can stop medicating your cat. The food is expensive, but my little girl is worth every penny. I wish Hill's could offer frequent buyer coupons to help out the cost to US pet owners. Maybe someday they will. This food really works just make sure they eat nothing else. Hope this helps anyone who on the fence about this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smaller cans a must Hill's Thyroid care y/d has done wonders for our 15 yr old male with hyperthyroidism. It has eliminated the need for meds. BUT would like smaller cans so he gets fresher food. A variety of flavours would help too.

    do u make thyroid control in a stew? Our cat does not care for the pate-If so could we order one can as a sample?

    Asked by: TBo1
    Thank you for your question. Thyroid Care y/d is not available in a stew. To entice your pet to eat the pate, you might try placing the food on a microwave safe dish and warming it for 5-7 seconds to enhance the aromas. You could also try adding a few tablespoon of warm water to one meal. We hope this helps! Hill's Pet Nutrition

    Do you continue topical meds if you start food?

    I recently purchased this and it seems to have a different consistency. Not as dense. Was the formula changec?

    Asked by: Smea
    That’s a great question. To maintain our leadership in nutritional health care for companion animals, Hill’s® will periodically makes changes to product formulas to incorporate additional health or product design benefits. This product was last reformulated in August of 2016. However, the texture of the product did not change. While it is difficult to tell the exact cause for this change in texture, we can assure you that this variation has no impact on the nutritional value of the food. Some possible causes of the variation are the freshness of the product or temperatures the food has been exposed to. A freshly produced product can appear softer or stickier and will generally increase in firmness as it ages. Some formulas with higher starch levels, can take longer for the starch to regenerate into a firmer loaf. If you go from using an older can to a newer can, there might be a noticeable difference in texture. If you would like to speak to us more about this please contact us at 1-800-445-5777 (M-F 8-5 CST). Hope this helps! Hill’s Pet Nutrition
