Description

Hills R/D available from VioVet

Hill's Prescription Diet Canine r/d has been developed for the nutritional weight control of obese or overweight dogs. Not only can obesity cause discomfort for your dog but it can lead to the onset of numerous obesity-related illnesses and debilitating conditions, related to reduced energy levels, heart disease, diabetes and arthritis. Poor diet that is high in protein and fat is one of the leading causes of obesity and obesity-related illness. Hill's Prescription Diet r/d has been designed specifically for the management of weight in susceptible dogs, containing reduced calories, natural fibres and nutrients included to help burn fat and promote healthy muscle mass.

Feeding Guide

These ranges are a starting point only, because dogs' needs vary. Adjust the feeding amount as necessary. To correct obesity, the amount to be fed should be based on the estimated ideal weight (target weight) and not the weight when obese.

If we cannot do so within 3 working days we will contact you by email.

Delivery of temperature controlled items

Some products, such as insulin and frozen food, need to be delivered in insulated packaging to prevent them from getting too warm (or too cold) during transit from us to you.

You only pay the £1.99 once per order, regardless of how many temperature controlled items you purchase in that order.

AAFCO statement

Anya

I would like to know what the nutritional adequacy statement reads as; ie what is the AAFCO statement say? Thanks

  • Veterinary Advisor

The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) is an American organisation and you would have to go to their website to find out information from them. They have no jurisdiction over foods sold in the UK, which is where we are based.

Is the W/D for dog with diabetes please

Chris Law

my dog has been diagnosed with diabetes & to buy from the vet is very expensive

  • Veterinary Advisor

High fibre diets like this are commonly used to help with the treatment of diabetes in dogs. You should make sure your vet knows what diet you are using and you follow all other instructions. Hills r/d is used for overweight dogs with diabetes and w/d is used for dogs of healthy weight with diabetes. There are other (eg. high protein) diets which can also be used as an alternative, but it is best to use whatever your vet advises.
