Description

Hills D/D available from VioVet

Hills d/d diet is carefully formulated to help with the treatment of dietary allergies and food intolerances. These adverse reactions to foods which are perfectly good for most individuals are usually to one or more of the specific proteins in the diet. These ingredients are very unlikely to be associated with any sort of reaction, so the symptoms should gradually improve after several weeks of being fed Hills d/d. It is important to prevent any other foods from being eaten as well, or they might prolong the underlying problem.

Additional information

  • Two novel protein formulas combine a single novel animal protein source (venison) with a single source of carbohydrate and vegetable protein (green pea).
  • During Elimination Diet trial, ensure d/d™ Feline is the only source of food. Particular care is required with cats allowed outdoors.
  • For increased palatability, the dry formula is coated with hydrolysed chicken. To avoid an allergic reaction this hydrolysate has an average molecular weight <6,000 daltons and no intact protein molecules.
  • d/d™ Feline can benefit cats with chronic otitis externa (which can be a sign of an adverse food reaction) and cats with non-allergic skin disease, by providing essential nutrients. Fish oil, highly purified to exclude any protein residue, is added as a source of omega-3 fatty acids.
