Hill's Prescription Diet Feline y/d
Hill's Prescription Diet Feline y/d is a full nutritional feed designed to manage thyroid health in cats.
How it works
Hill's Prescription Diet Feline y/d is formulated to improve your cat's thyroid health. The food has low levels of iodine, which is used by the thyroid gland to make hormones. Limiting dietary iodine helps to keep hormones at a normal level, reducing the effects of hyperthyroidism. As well as helping with thyroid issues, the food is specially designed to give your cat the nutrients it needs to live a healthy life. The food has low levels of phosphorus and sodium (good for kidneys), while the controlled mineral content can help keep your cat’s bladder in good condition. It also has high levels of L-carnitine to aid in improving heart health, and added Omega fatty acids for a luxurious coat.
As a nutritionally balanced food, it should take the place of all your cat's meals to ensure your cat isn't getting iodine from any other sources. Results can usually be seen within three weeks.

When to use it
Hyperthyroidism is fairly common in cats, and is often found in middle-age or older animals. It's usually discovered at around 13 years of age. Symptoms may include weight loss, increased appetite, a dull coat, messy appearance, thirst, increased urinating, breathing problems (or breathing too fast), abnormal heart beat, restlessness, aggression, thickened nails or vomiting and diarrhoea. An enlarged thyroid gland is the biggest sign; feel around your cat's neck for lumps. Some of these symptoms are linked to other diseases such as chronic renal failure and intestinal lymphoma, so it's important to consult your vet for diagnosis.
Because veterinary diets are formulated for the nutritional support of pets with specific clinical conditions, we recommend that you only use them under professional advice. For more information on feeding Hill's Prescription Diet Feline y/d to your cat, please consult your veterinary surgeon.

Amazing results in just 4 weeks ,very high thyroid readings back to within normal range!Our 19 year old cat was diagnosed with an overactive thyroid. At her age the only option was this food. Fussy madam not keen on the tins - but loves the dried food. Just 4 weeks later her thyroid readings were within normal range, and she has put a little weight on too. Now 4 months on, she is a different cat, been given new lease of life. I was sceptical of reviews I read before we bought the food - they were right. Thank you Hills Y/d, without this food it would have been a very different story
y/d diet for catsgreat efficient service and at good price!Since giving it to my cat who is 20 yrs old who's thyroid level was 54 which went down to 47,so was well worth it instead of going for the chemical way or surgery.
LifelineMy 17 year old cat was on his last legs with an over active thyroid problem when I was recommended Hills y/d feline diet food by my vet. I didn't hold out much hope, to see my cat now you would think he was a different animal. He looks 10 years younger, his behaviour is back on track as an adorable, loveable creature. He has a lovely shiny coat & healthy appetite. This product has really given him a new lease of life. Would urge anyone with a pet with this problem to try it.
Gave our cat 2 more happy yearsIt was getting impossible to give our cat thyroid pills but fortunately this new food was available which gave our cat 2 more happy years.
Poppy age 11 has stopped raiding the bin! has a lovely glossy coat, and is much more content now since starting this thyroid food, along with the introduction of a warm mat on her bed she is a much happier cat, and has put on some weight too. highly recommended for a cat showing age related thyroid issues.
