    Hill's Prescription Diet Derm Defense for Dogs

    By on

    Excellent for a dog who suffers from skin redness, irritation and allergies. It is higher in Omega 3's and Omega 6's to counteract the inflammatory response of allergies in a dog. Must be good tasting since the dog loves it.

    Finally! My dog loves a prescription dog food.

    By on

    My Maltese has recently had allergies creep into her life. Unknown what's causing the rashes and itching, but it's gotten very bad. Switched to a new Vet and she recommended this food and some other changes. My dog would not eat other prescription food, but she loves this Hill's Derm Defense. It's been 2 weeks and with the antibiotics and other changes my dog is doing so much better. The food is expensive, but it's my dog and she's part of the family. Take the good with the bad. I was very surprised that Chewy took back the other prescription food that my dog wouldn't eat and a full refund was provided. Now that's customer service.

    Disaster for Meals

    By on

    My 'little girl' was prescribed Hill's Prescription ID and readily accepted it for her meals. She's since been taken off that and prescribed Derm Defense, which she refuses to eat at all!! I'm beside myself with frustration. Is there any other 'form' of this dog food available?

    Not liking New formula

    By on

    Apparently Hill's recently changed their formula. The food used to have a nice thick gravy. The gravy is now like water. Our dog still likes the food but the thin gravy makes it very difficult for our dog to eat without making a huge mess. I wish they would have just left it alone !!
