Hill's Prescription Diet Thyroid Care y/d Adult Wet Cat Food - Chicken
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.

What a difference it has madeMy 18 year old ginger flurken was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism last year. Sadly, the medication wasn't an long term option for him as he had a bad reaction to it. Enter, Hills y/d. Which, he immediately loved the taste of. And, in four short weeks, has helped him put on a bit of weight, calmed him down (he is still nuts though) and has massively improved his coat, eyes and general quality of life. He now seems like his old self - happy, calm, inquisitive cat who can enjoy his old age.
Not for my kitty :-(This is not a wet food itâ€™s more like a pate (very dry and smelly) my cat loves the biscuits for thyroid problems but ran a mile at this tinned version. I now have 23 tins of unwanted food.
A life saver!After my 18 year old moggy being diagnosed with hyper thyroidism, options were to operate after a course of tablets. The tablets left me with an even sicker cat and locum vet suggested y/d diet by way of being proactive. After 6 weeks of being on it and normal vet openly discrediting this diet, T count had dropped into normal range! Was told to carry on feeding my cat this food and after another 5 weeks, she is looking healthier, fur is recovering, etc. I use the tinned food alongside the dry to give variety, offering plenty of water.
My old CatMy old cat got diagnosed with over active thyroid it was incredibly high! Went to the vet and they said we had 2 options tablets or we could try this cat food. We opted for the cat food , his thyroid dropped to normal levels very quickly and 3yrs on my cat has normal levels and is in good health.
Not very temptingMy Son's little cat has to be on an exclusive thyroid diet as a last resort as nothing else has worked. She eats the prescription y/d kibble but these tins really aren't 'wet cat food'. Dry, thick paste, quite cloying and unfortunately after purchasing a case.....she doesn't like it.
