Hills prescription diet canine b/d, available from VioVet, is formulated for the effective management of behavioural changes in older dogs through progressive brain ageing. This is the direct result of free radicals, naturally produced by the body, inflicting changes on the more vulnerable older brain. This in turn is likely to cause advancing behavioural changes in senior dogs, and Hills unique prescription diet, combining a nutritious and balanced combination of vegetables and antioxidants, is formulated to counter-act and improve age-related issues, including house training, sleep patterns, orientation and interaction.
These ranges are a starting point only, because dogs' needs vary. Adjust the feeding amount to maintain optimal body weight.

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Hill's Prescription Diet b/d Ageing and Alertness Care with Chicken Dry Dog Food, including answers from our team.
My 14yo Lhasa Apso is currently fed hills k/d due to kidney disease but has been recently been started on vivitonin due to brain ageing problems and a recent stroke but it hasn't made any difference, I would like to try b/d instead but will this be ok with his kidney problems?
Hills b/d is a "senior profile" diet, meaning that it is generally expected to be given to older dogs with possibly reduced heart or kidney performance. The protein and mineral balance is tailored with this in mind. If your dog's kidney function is very poor, then the k/d might be best. However if the kidneys are not too bad, then the Hills b/d diet would probably be worth a try. It depends on the balance between the two concerns and which is greater. Your vet can advise you on this, taking into account blood and urine test results.
