Hill's Prescription Diet Thyroid Care y/d Adult Wet Cat Food - Chicken
Hill's Prescription Diet Feline y/d is a special food that can help to improve your cat's thyroid health.
What it's for
Hyperthyroidism (an overactive thyroid gland) is quite common in cats – especially middle-age or older ones. It's often found in cats aged 13 or above. Signs to look out for are weight loss, eating more, a dull coat, thirstiness, going to the toilet more, trouble breathing, a scruffy appearance, a weird heartbeat, acting a bit hyper, being aggressive, thickened nails, being sick and having diarrhoea. You might even notice that their thyroid gland is bigger. Have a gentle feel around your cat's neck and see if you can find any lumps. Some of the symptoms mentioned could be signs of other nasty illnesses like kidney failure and intestinal lymphoma, so if you notice them it's important to get in touch with your vet right away.
- low iodine to stop the thyroid glands from producing too many hormones

- balanced level of minerals to keep bladder healthy
- added L-carnitine supports heart health
- contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids for a healthy and shiny coat
- designed to be your cat's only food source during treatment
- expect results within three weeks.
How it works
Hill's Prescription Diet Feline y/d is specially designed to help keep your cat's thyroid healthy. The recipe is low in iodine, which the thyroid gland uses to make hormones. Making sure your cat eats less iodine helps to keep their hormones at a normal level, reducing the symptoms of hyperthyroidism.
As well as helping with thyroid problems, the food also gives your cat all the nutrition they need for a healthy life. It has low phosphorus and sodium (great for the kidneys) and the balanced level of minerals can stop bladder stones from forming. It's also got high levels of L-carnitine to keep their heart healthy, and omega fatty acids for a gorgeous coat. Because this food is specially balanced, it needs to take the place of all their meals to make sure they aren't getting iodine anywhere else. You will most likely see results within three weeks.
Veterinary diets like this one have been specially made to support pets with specific medical conditions. Because of this, they might not be suitable for all pets, so we'd recommend getting professional advice before feeding them to your pet. If you think your cat could benefit from eating Hill's Prescription Diet Feline y/d, why not have a chat with your vet?

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.
