Transition Instructions

We recommend at least a 7-day transition before you begin feeding the new food exclusively. Start by mixing 75% of the old diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the old diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the old diet with 75% of the new diet. On the 7th day, you can feed the new food exclusively. This allows your pet’s digestive system to smoothly adapt to the new food.

  • Hydrologized Protein was a Life Saver

    By on

    My Yorkie had been very sick 3 years ago and I was prepared to lose him. The vet said the only hope besides expensive surgery was to try this dog food. It is the only food he is allowed. Now he is 13 years 9 months and doing fine unless he finds something on the floor someone drops. Then he becomes VERY ill. I couldn’t make it without this brand!

    My Ratci has been on the food for 3 yrs now, I do have to get a prescription from my Benfield vet to by it but they don't charge me for it and it last for the complete year. My girl was so bloody from biting her foot, scratching her chest raw. I won't give her anything else

    At every vet visit my Cooper is told he needs to drop a few pounds. I am very particular about what goes into my furkids bodies. I look at every ingredient. Cooper has a poultry allergy. His skin gets really itchy. I had been giving them Organix Grain-Free Poultry-free Salmon-based dry food, really good food, so I was sure he just needed more exercise. Every vet visit the scale was either rising or not budging. I couldn't figure it out. Finally my vet put them on this HP food, especially formulated for allergy-prone dogs. I just went to the vet today and Cooper has lost 3 pounds! Which is a big progress for a small Yorkie/Maltese mix. I guess it was the food choice all along.

I learned that just because a food has good ingredients, doesn't mean it digests well for every dog. The food I was giving them was quality, but high-calorie. This special HP food is lower calorie but still rich in quality. They love the taste too, so we are all happy :) I gave it 4 stars only because I wish it wasn't so expensive. My other food was expensive too, but I got more food for the money. ($64 for a 25 lb bag vs this $35 for an 8 lb bag). … more

  • All the animals like it

    By on

    I purchased the hydrolyzed protein small dog for my Maltese. He gnaws on his forelegs and I was told this might help. Apoquel has done nothing to stop the itching. He is not a fan of the canned version of this food so I have opted for a different brand of grain free canned food to supplement his diet. So I can't say whether it has helped. What I can say is the cats try to push their way in to grab some of this food so it must taste good.

  • Good Stuff

    By on

    Kobe has food allergies, at least that's what the vet thinks. He is super picky about what food he will eat, She says it may be because so much processed foods upset his stomach. He went right to his dish and ate the whole bowl when we gave this to him!..It is yet to be seen if this will solve his allergies.

    My poor dog has had the worst skin allergies for YEARSSSSS & no one could get him straightened out. My vet tried this food & it has made night/day difference. I love I can get it cheaper than the vets office here... & my dog loves it too.

  • She loves it!

    By on

    That was my greatest concern. Usually I have to put a topper on all the dry dog foods, but not with this!!! That is such a relief, because to find out about food allergies, she can't have anything else. I ordered this Thursday PM, and it arrived Saturday! I immediately asked her if she wanted a treat and gave her a morsel and she wanted more. She didn't just like it because I said "treat." Believe me you can't fool that little Morkie girl. There are plenty of treats she won't touch. When I fed her dinner, she went right after it and ate it all. She even seemed to have more energy and seemed more playful. I don't know if it is possible after just one meal, but it seemed that way. The last That was my greatest concern. Usually I have to put a topper on all the dry dog foods, but not with this!!!

I don't know if it is possible after just one meal, but it seemed that way. The last thing she was on was a grain free lamb. So the only thing that concerns me is that this Royal Canin has grain, And I'm a little dubious about the soy in it also. However, if this helps me figure out what she is allergic to, it will be a blessing. Her allergy is licking her feet when her Apoquel wears off in the evening, and sliding her butt side to side, not dragging as if gland problem. I don't know if I can do a follow up review, but if so I will after she's been on this for a few weeks. THANK YOU CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR FIGURING OUT MY EMAILS AND MY ATTEMPTS OF SWITCING ORDERS. THEY ARE GREAT! … more

  • Keeps my Boston terrier healthy

    By on

    My veterinarian recommended this food for my Boston terrier who had constant digestive problems which caused very runny stool, awful. This food worked in 2-3 days, so she will be on this her entire life. Thanks to chewy, I can get the size package I like for a lower price than my vet can give, and get it shipped when I need it.
