Hills Prescription Diet Cat Food Yd at PetFoodDirect
“Hill’s y/d is clearly an iodine deficient diet, containing levels of approximately 0.2 mg/kg (0.2 ppm) on a dry matter basis, well below the minimum daily requirement for adult cats (0.46 mg/kg or 0.46 ppm) of food. It’s important to note that the study that established this minimum daily requirement for cats was done by investigators funded by Hill’s Pet Nutrition. So, claims that this is just a low iodine diet, but not one deficient in iodine is nonsense, unless one does not believe the results of that study.”

Research indicates that foods that contain 5 to 26 percent of calories from carbohydrates help maintain glycemic control in diabetic cats, according to Hill’s. The percent of calories from carbohydrates in y/d (23 percent dry, 24 percent canned) is within this range.September 16, 2016 my cat was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism a year ago. She is 14 years old. Taking methmazole daily, which effectively helped. But began having loose stools that stunk so badly. Decided by talking to our vet to try the y/d dry food for 3 months. Her stools were not loose anymore and I thought she was doing well. Unfortunately my cat went from 6lbs to 3lbs. (She has always been small) normal weight 8lbs. She stopped eating and drinking!! Nearly killing her. So, we stopped the y/d. Had blood work done. Her hormone levels were through the roof!! Force fed her the hills a/d diet and the next day she was eating it on her own. Totally transformed her. We’re back to taking methmazole. The y/d as far as I’m concerned is not a cure all.Hill’s Pet Nutrition’s new diet, y/d Thyroid Health, is supposed to provide a fourth option for pet owners. My gut feeling was that it sounded too good to be true: simply change your cat’s food, and cure a potentially life-threatening disease? The ingredient list made me cringe. The dry version contains no animal protein; its protein is derived from corn gluten meal, soybean hulls and dried egg product. The canned product is only marginally better: it contains meat by-products, corn and rice.Hill's Prescription Diet y/d Feline Thyroid Health Dry Food: * Clinically proves to improve cats thyroid health in 3 weeks* Complete and daily nutrition* Controlled levels of sodium and phosphorous for optimum kidney support* Taurine and carnitine promotes heart health* Skin and coat support with…Been giving our cat Ginger both dry and cannded Hills Prescription Y/D for three weeks.
Hugh difference in our cats appetite. Have been pilling her for last 3 years and she still ate all the time and her bowels were horrible. After a few days her bowels were normal and her appetite has decreased and her heart rates has slowed, which we can tell by watching her breathing. She is resting more and eating less. I add a little hot water to some dry food then mix in a little canned food. She does well eating it. Now starting week four and I will stop pilling per vets advice and just give her Y/D food only, strickly nothing else per vets advice. Time will tell if the Y/D food is enough to control her hyperthryoidism. So far so good.Hill's Prescription Diet y/d Feline Thyroid Health Canned Cat Food is: * Supports kidney health with controlled phosphorus and low sodium.* Helps maintain bladder health with controlled mineral levels.* Promotes heart health with essential nutrients like taurine and carnitine.* Promotes healthy skin…
