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.
