Hills I/D available from VioVet

Hill's 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. Hill's 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.

My German shephard x collie

12th Nov 2014

My dog got diagnosed with liver decease and was told to put her on hepatic L/D, but blood tests are now clear but have been told to keep her on it incase of relapse but she also has sensitive stomach and so I'm thinking of putting her on L/D dry and i/d wet tins. Can someone advise me if that is ok?

John Cousins

Blood tests for liver problems are very sensitive so if she is clear on a blood test, you probably have no real need to continue with a liver support diet. The i/d food is probably very appropriate for her so I would keep her on just that.

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.
