But I'm not sure the food loves him. I have all faith in Hill's Rx Diets regardless of the naysayers. It has never let me down. Jerry is a sheepadoodle with food sensitivites - some foods tolerated and some are not. We tried the venison version and he just loved it. I introduce new things so gradually that, yes, sometimes it takes awhile to see the true outcome. By the time we reached a 1/2 and 1/2 ratio, the barfing began. I backed off to a smaller portion and still a no-go. I went entirely back to his original Hills ID Low Fat and am letting him get back to center before giving it another try. If this isn't for him, we'll try another DD version (different protein)! If not, ID has failed us not - ever. So yes, I'd recommend this food - just maybe not for Jerry!
I'm not sure if I am to rate the product or the delivery. The dog kibble is venison however, venison is not the first ingredient. Potato and potato flour come first. My dog's stomach tolerates this food but she has gained weight while eating it. She is a 14 lb, 8 year old miniature poodle and fed only 1/3 cup of this kibble (divided in half) a day in two meals. I add a little scrape of canned food and a small amount of sodium free green beans vegetable. The canned is a weight management variety by Rachel Ray.
I am so pleased with this food for sensitive stomachs. My dogs really like it . Chewy is great & love the fast shipping.
I wanted to find a cheaper alternative to the fresh food I've been feeding my guy but would also work for his food sensitivities. He can't eat poultry or beef, so he's been eating venison and fish. This venison/potato mix as been a real palette pleaser for him, and he seems to like the change up to kibbel. He still gets fresh food one meal and this the other meal. We will also be trying the d/d salmon.
Might be good for some but my dog hates it plus it has way too many potatoes. My dog has allergies and this food doesn’t help
We had this prescription for d/d venison for 5 years! Worked WONDERS FOR ITCHY SKIN AND LOOSING HAIR….Ordered like always got a bag sealed—- opened but didn’t smell the same? I have to mix filtered water with the girls dry food to make it easier to chew ( it’s small but you can’t break with your hands!). I mixed warm water like always and let it sit- usually it makes a beef smell broth. NOPE! I was concerned. I sat it down for the girls- one of my girls smelled and walked away whining at me. I’m like “ Go eat your food.” She wouldn’t touch it!!!!!!!! The other girl it took her a bit but she ate some. After 2 days of this - I started to panic! My girls need to eat!!!! I am guessing that Hill Science changed the formula of the flavor for the venison type!!!!!!! So I had to call Chewy and get switched to a different flavor! They were AMAZING!!!!! THANK YOU BUNCHES! Praying praying this works. I will submit more later!
Sophie has extreme sensitivities and has to eat a hydrolyzed protein diet. She can be picky but she really likes this. And that says a lot. Her vets at Virginia Tech Veterinary School recommended this.
My 5 year old female golden retriever is allergic to everything. We tried Royal Canin Ultamino but she would occasionally vomit that up and still get hot spots on her stomach. We tried other foods that were salmon and other proteins, but she would still get soft or watery stools. We even tried fresh food from companies like Farmer's Dog and Ollie and her stools were not consistent. She's been D/D Venison for about 10 days and the stools have been PERFECT. No skin reactions. No diarrhea. No vomiting. She begs for it for breakfast and dinner so no issues with the taste. I've been pairing this food with the Hypo Crunchy Dog Treats and once a week she gets a little ground bison as a treat when we make it for ourselves. Keeping her away from all other common proteins (i.e. chicken). The bag is a bit pricey but based on how much she eats (1000 calories/day), it should last me just over 5 weeks, so that's not bad.
My dog loves this food. The food has a High carb Content at 55%… carbs turn to sugar which feed yeast. Not sure if this food is contributing to his yeasty ears.
My dog loves this food, more than any kibble he's had before. It also fixed his stomach problems, he used to vomit frequently but that has gone away.
