Hill's Prescription Diet d/d Skin/Food Sensitivities Potato & Venison Formula Dry Dog Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 91.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chewy's excellent shipping and customer service Thank you Chewy for your excellent shipping and customer service, and that my order punctually arrived. My sweet adopted retired Marine dog Nero, was a bomb searcher and rescue dog for six years working alongside the Marines in Afghanistan. Nero is now 8 years old and I adopted him two months ago here in southern California. Nero is very special and his service [and that of all the dogs who check out bombs in war zones like Nero did for six years] are quite exceptional, because of all the lives they've saved while performing their very dangerous service for the U.S. Marines and the U.S. in general. Nero was very ill this past 2014 before I could take him home from the shelter. A university Vet hospital started feeding him the Hills prescription canned food Potato and Venison d/d canned food. Once I was able to take him home, I also gave him the dry, kibble d/d Potato and Venison as well. Now, Nero has gained back his weight, his digestive system has improved tremendously, and he looks like the great Belgian Malinois again that he is. Your excellent, and punctual customer service has been a great support in continuing this diet. Angela O.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HIGHEST PROFESSIONAL QUALITY Fortunately for me my dog who suffers from apparent skin allergies has responded very well to this new dry dog food. I mixed it progressively over a 1 week period and he has now been on 100% Hills Prescription Died d/d Potato & Venison for just over a week. I've already noticed a general reduction in his typically irritated pink skin color and there have been days when his skin is completely normal. This food came VERY highly recommended by my veterinarian. I think I'll stick with Hills' Prescription Diet (not to be confused with Hill's Science Diet which does not require a prescription to purchase) for the foreseeable future. It's pricey, there's no way around that. But, I trust the quality that can hopefully bring about a resolution to my dog's food allergy problems but on top of it all . . . my dog just LOVES this food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for sensitive skin So far food is working good on our scotty who's breed is known for skin problems. A little pricey but at least our dog can have some meat in his food again. He was on a vegetarian diet but vet said he was not getting all he needed and was eating dirt. Now since on this food the dirt eating has stopped so far. It's worth a try. We did and so far love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loves her new food This is a great product for pets with certain protein allergies. Our 10 yr old Lab developed IBS and this food put a stop to it. She can no longer have anything besides Venison based food and it is a bit costly and you do need a prescription, but now that it has been in her system for about 6-7 months she is as normal as ever when "nature calls".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog LOVES d/d! I was feeling very guilty that suddenly my dog-- who suffers from allergies and resulting chronic ear infections-- would only be able to eat her new prescription dog food and nothing else for at least 3 months. NO goodies! But, just as my vet said would happen, I used the kibble as her treats. She loves this food so much, she doesn't seem to miss her other snacks at all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Food My 2 year old dachshund has been on a food trial for a little over a month on this food. In addition to medication and frequent baths, his fur is growing back, he is chewing his paws less, and sores are gone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great benefits Greyhounds are notorious for digestive issues. After discussing this with our vet she lead us to this wonderful product. Not only does it help their coats maintain a silky shine/feel, but, it eliminated the need for me to scour the backyard with a spatula! This product has been a Godsend to our lovely hounds. It's small bites also make it easier for them to manage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food for dogs with sensitive stomachs. Our dog, Bailey, an Italian Greyhound has stomach problems for over a year. After $900 at a vet specialty clinic that included an ultrasound, blood work etc and nothing was discovered the vet suggested Hills Prescription diet. After just one week her stomach aches, stomach growling subsided.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more itch! After taking our Golden to a dermatologist for skin testing we started monthly allergy shots and switched her feed to d&d. Within two years we had reduced her allergy shots and in another two years eliminated the shots altogether. We feel confident that changing her feed was the driving force in eliminating the shots. No licking her feet, scratching her back on the sofa, her skin issues are relieved.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ummmmm Venison My 9 year old Bullmastiff, Belle, is a 3 time cancer survivor, widow, in great health but is seriously neurotic. She has a serious case of OCD on her paws and is on Doxepin Rx to assist. After 1 year on Rx, it began to stop assisting, so prescription dog food here I come. From day one from opening this d/d dog food bag.......I have had puddles of drool on my kitchen floor. Belle is one satisfied Bullmastiff. Her skin is less itchy and her coat is beautiful. She enjoys the treats as well. She has enjoyed 3 bags of d/d and we are looking forward to our next vet checkup. Either way, I will continue to feed her d/d because it makes the quality of her life amazing. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the dog food; my dogs shed less and skin, eyes and coats in great condition. Since using this dog food my dogs have been very healthy with great coats, skin, eyes shine. Big difference in dog hair in my house also which is a BIG plus. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank Goodness! My dog has lupus and really needs to be on the z/d but she just wouldn't eat it. Nothing I did to it would make her any more interested. The vet suggested we switch to the d/d and she LOVES it! It's nice to not have to force her to eat to then force her to take her medicine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and my dogs love it Our boxer/pitbull dog was diagnosed with skin allergies and the vet recommended this product. Almost immediately our dog's skin cleared up. The only downside is we have 3 big dogs and now the other 2 will not eat their own cheaper food. . . so now they all 3 eat the good stuff and their skin, hair, and coat has never looked better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Geat food My Yorkie loves this stuff especially the canned. I use the canned as a treat & also for his pills. Vet recommended this product to rule out food allergies & it seems to be working just fine at this stage (1 month). His hair is growing back & he has a silky feel to his coat again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more itching My Shih Tzu was continually chewing his paws and had terrible ear infections. Since the vet put him on this food, he hasn't had an ear infection and his paws never itch anymore. I am VERY pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have a new dog! My 5 year old rescued yellow Lab had frequent skin and ear infections. He had a rash over his front legs and abdomen which he scratched constantly. His coat was dry and brittle and very thin. He had bare spots on his legs. After trying medicated baths and Benedril, to no avail, our vet suggested Prescrition d/d Potato & Venison. I balked at the price, but decided to give it a try. After only 2 days, our boy's rash was gone. After 4 months on this diet, he has a soft, thick coat and no more itching! It is expensive, but worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Resolved itchiness, but it's expensive! My 1.5 year old lab came down with intense scratching and licking that was keeping me up all night. Our vet suggested a prescription diet, even though he'd already been on high quality, grain free food. We tried Hill's Potato and Venison - in combination with absolute restrictions on any other animal proteins in treats - and his itchiness has mostly resolved itself in about two weeks. The food is more expensive that the specialty dog store grain-free options, but I'm happy to pay it and keep him on it. It does smell pretty awful, but naturally he loves it. And the subscription from Chewy.com is super-convenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is the onlt dog food my greyhound can eat After months at the vet for chronic diarrehea my dog was given Hill's prescription diet. He now is healthy and gained all his weight back!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Food excellent! Package opening/resealing needs help Transitioning from one food to another can be difficult. But not with this product. My two labs liked it better and adjusted to it easily after two weeks of blending old product and new. Hill's smaller bit size also makes it easy to portion out correctly. While Hill's package structure guarantees freshness, it is difficult to open and when working out of the bag difficult to close - with little possibility of creating a freshness seal like many other competitive products This excellent product can distinguish it self with one easy customer helpful packaging change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Worked ... Fast! Finally! Something to stop my dog from chewing his tail into a bloody frenzy. I tried several different types of foods - nothing worked ... until now! It only took a few days and we started noticing a difference. No scratching, brighter coat, happier disposition. It's a bit pricey but its working and everyone is happier at this home. Phew!!! Next we'll begin discovering the culprit and avoid whatever it is from here on out.
