    DefaultWhat is the "Ultra" in Science Diet Z/D Ultra??

    Hello -
    My pupp was put on Science Diet Z/D to treat to an allergy. When I went to order more they said that they only had Science Diet Z/D Ultra in stock and that the two products were comparable.

    Well .... now the skin allergy is back? Does anyone know the difference in these two formulas?

    I think I would run away from a food whose first ingredient was STARCH. Have you tried him on a food with a novel protein and a single grain source like Simple Solutions OR a grain free food? I am sure you are paying through the nose for this prescription.
