Purina Veterinary Diets HA Hypoallergenic Formula Dry Dog Food
So far so good!
I have a pit bull with sensitive skin and food allergies. We used to feed her a fish and potato food, but her coat was still not as nice as I thought it should be. We switched her over to HA 3 weeks ago. Her coat is soft, shiny and so far no skin infections. When we were in the process of switching her over she actually picked out the HA and ate it first. We are very happy with the change so far.

a great product for some, but not, all dogs
I remember when my 2 year old Shih Tzu became extremely ill. I rushed her to our vet, and he gently told me that Lily was extremely ill, and that it would take both of us to get her well, but that I should not get my hopes up.
He explained about the new type of food that she must start eating. Thankfully I had never fed her any other food except Science Diet - in other words, no table scraps and no human food or treats.
It was touch and go for the next week or so - many times I thought that Lily had died, as did my then 8 year old Lhasa Apso
Sophie. The 2 dogs had become very close - and I knew that the loss of either of them would be a big blow to the survivor of them.
Finally Lily started pulling out - I'm a widow and was living alone at the time. She was fed many times during the day at night - enough to keep her alive but not too much.
Had it not been for Purina's Veterinary Diet HS Hypoallergenic Canine Formula, Lily would not be here with us tonight. She's a cute and highly intelligent little dog, and I'm so glad that she is well and is able to stay well. I don't feed her any food at all except the above mentioned food, and Purina, thank you so much.

This dog food is a miracle!
My young German Shepherd has been scratching his ears for awhile. My vet suggested a year ago that he suspected a food allergy. Gunner had been eating another top quality food both as a puppy and as an adult. I tried various limited ingredient and hypoallergenic food. No apparent change. My ancient Afghan Hound (rug dog) is dormant and eats the same food as Gunner. I tried Purina HA and within 2-3 days, Gunner is hardly scratching his ears at all and Molly the Rug Dog is now outside every day and much more active in the house! It is expensive but well worth it. Just like human health, you will either pay the money for quality food, or it will paid dearly in other ways.

This product is what my dog has to have for his health.
This is best dog food for my dogs. They stay active and no skin problems like other dog food does.

This is the only food my dog can eat. Chewy was able to get my pets prescription from our vet- I didn't have to do a thing other than provide his name and number- and now I'm set up to receive my food auto shipped to me.

WOW, she's right at the pantry door, waiting!
Vet found our American Foxhound, rescue, of 4-7 yrs was suffering from some type of allergic reaction. Said greatest probability was a food allergy in dogs. She came home with Purina H.A. Three weeks later, she is only experiencing occasional sneezing every other day or so. What a difference.

I say interesting because, as we all know, dogs (most animals including humans) are motivated in part by smell. If it smells good you will eat it. Well what is interesting about this food is that it lacks both odor and color, yet my GSD eats this stuff like he's going to the chair. He has only ever showed such enthusiasm when he was eating raw meat. This is a good thing because Fin must have this food right now until we figure out what exactly he is allergic to. It would not have been good if he would not eat this food, I know there are others just like it just not by this manufacturer. Good Job Purina! Thank you Chewy for carrying it :)

Doctors Orders for my dog
We are in the early stages of finding out why my dog is chewing himself to shreds and the vet thinks its a food allergy.
What can I say except the dog likes the food and eats it everyday.
