Specific (VetXX) Food Allergy Management is a nutritionally tailored diet for dogs with food allergies and intolerances, which can often cause gastrointestinal and dermatological disorders if ignored. The food is also formulated to help manage symptoms of pancreatic insufficiency, urate urolithiasis, vomiting and diarrhoea. The food contains a hearty blend of hydrolysed salmon protein and digestible whole rice and egg, as well as psyllium husk to help regulate gastrointestinal tract condition and activity and is deliberately low in proteins to help prevent and reduce urate stones or crystals. Highly digestible and palatable to appeal to the most selective appetites.

Please note: Due to a change in the use of hydrolysed salmon protein, this diet is aimed at adult dogs only. For a diet suitable for puppies, Specific recommend COD-HY Allergy Management Plus, which is suitable for all ages.


  • Hydrolysed salmon protein - Hydrolysed salmon protein with a molecular weight <10.000 Dalton has a high digestibility and a low allergenicity
  • Rice (gluten free) - Rice has a low allergenicity and a high digestibility, which makes it a perfect ingredient in hypoallergenic diets. Rice does not contain gluten and will thus be tolerated by dogs with gluten allergy/intolerance
  • High digestibility - Very high quality and highly digestible ingredients make the diet especially useful for patients with small intestinal diarrhoea
  • Intestinal support - Psyllium Husk is a gel-forming soluble fibre, which absorbs several times its weight in liquid and is know for its beneficial effect on the regulation of the gastrointestinal tract activity


Rice, rice protein, hydrolysed salmon protein, pork fat, minerals, vitamins and trace elements, powdered cellulose, sunflower oil, psyllium husk.

Antioxidants: EC approved additives: BHA, BHT. It contains no artificial colours or flavourings.

Frequent passing water

Linda Organ

  • VioVet customer since 2016
  • From: Essex, United Kingdom

My 2 yr old Rough collie is now on this food CDD-HY Food Allergy Managment after many bouts of diaorreah. Her stools are much better however she now drinks a lot more and is needing to pee more frequently at night. Even to the point of doing it indoors if she can't wait. Help!

  • Non-Executive Director

There is nothing about this diet, or her past history, which explains the increased thirst and urine production. I suppose it is possible that it is down to the diet, but you would only find out by using a different type of hydrolysed food intended for allergies (Purina HA, Hills z/d etc). Personally I think the diet she is on is a good one, but you might end up trying an alternative. My initial thought is that there could certainly be another reason for the symptoms you have observed and your vet should look into that. A routine blood test might be indicated just to check for an underlying condition which could now be developing. (The previous diarrhoea may or may not have been caused by allergies, though they are indeed very common.) I would suggest letting your vet take a fresh look at the overall picture. It is unusual for a dog of 2 years of age to drink so much that she cannot hold her urine overnight.

Mrs griffiths

I have been given CDD-HY for my staffy pup she will be 6 months old on sunday is this food ok for her thanks

  • Non-Executive Director

This is an expensive, speciality food which should be OK for her, but is not likely to be better than many other more standard diets, or a variety of them in fact. There is unlikely to be a problem with feeding it though.
