Hills I/D available from VioVet

Hills prescription diet I/D, available from VioVet, has been developed for dogs suffering with gastrointestinal disorders. Such disorders affect a dog's stomach and intestinal system and have symptoms that are both often painful and prolonged. Hills prescription diet I/D has been specially formulated to be highly digestible and to encourage symptom reduction of vomiting and regurgitation, flatulence, constipation and diarrhoea. Further complaints associated with GI disorders include pancreatitis and gastroenteritis, both painful conditions that cause abdominal cramps, internal inflammation and sickness. Prescription diet I/D is tailored to the nutritional needs of dogs with GI disorders, as well as those recovering from gastrointestinal surgery.

Very effective and tasty

30th May 2013
  • VioVet Customer Since: September 2012
  • From: Essex, United Kingdom

My dog is on id original for over 2 years now because of digestive disorder and every time I try to switch to something else his stomach gets upset. It can get boring after such a long time so I add some boiled chicken to it to make it more interesting for him and he eats it happily. He loves the dry biscuits too. I would like to have the option of pouches, as the bottom of the tin gets scratched too easily with a spoon and the tin scrapings stay in the food. I had to get a silicon spatula to get the food from the bottom of the tin. This is a packaging problem though, not the actual food. The quality is marked down slightly because of the amount of corn they use, better quality cereal could have been put in considering the price. It is still a good processed food and until I find a way of cooking food from scratch that my dog would tolarate I will be using this.

Brilliant food as a support for diarrhoea.

7th May 2013
  • VioVet Customer Since: April 2012
  • From: Staffordshire, United Kingdom

I use this food every time my dogs have diarrhoea that doesn't need a Vet's intervention. Only needs to be used for a couple of days but sorts out the problem. My 2 dogs love it.

Can this be fed to a dog with ibd? 26th Feb 2014

My dog has been diagnosed with ibd and I want to change her from royal canin. Can this food keep her on track?

This food will suit many dogs with IBD but not all.. It is a variable disease and some individuals can be sensitive to components of almost any diet. Usually there is a period of experimentation with a very limited amount of different foods allowed, to ascertain what suits the individual involved. The main thing to look at is the ingredient list of the diet. If say maize, or turkey, cause trouble, they will almost certainly do so in any brand of food. Hills i/d contains maize and turkey, they are perfectly good for many dogs with IBD, but for some they would not be suitable. It is important to talk to your own vet about what is suspected to be possible triggers of the IBD, then choose a diet accordingly.
