Hill's® Prescription Diet® w/d® Canine Low Fat-Glucose Management-Gastrointestinal
Great food for my dogs health
My Weimaraner has issues with her stomach. This is the only food I have found that helps her to be healthy and not have diarrhea. It costs a little more but it is worth it. Thank you.

WD Prescription food is great
I have a diabetic dog and for 4 days I had to use something from a pet store that they said was ok for diabetic dogs. Well let me tell you it was not, his blood sugar was normal and then 4 days later it went up above 500. It took several months to get it back down to normal and as long as I leave him on Hill's Science diet WD prescription dog food, his blood sugar stays perfect. Please tell all the vets who sale this to recommend this to their customers with diabetic dogs, I realize it is very expensive, but well worth it. I wish it was a bit less expensive, but the difference it has made for our Bammer and that we still have him is worth the special dog food, special treats and the insulin he must have each day to keep him here with us. He is worth the price and love that big dog to pieces. I highly recommend this dog food!

This product is beneficial to your pet !
Since putting my miniature schnauzer on this type of food, she has regained her puppy stature. She has more energy, more playful and is one happy dog. The vet said might have trouble transitioning because of taste. Let me tell you !!!! She inhaled it. She loved it better than anything we ever gave her. Very pleased with this food. I may pay a little more, but I know I am feeding my dog food that is good for her in many ways. Thanks Hills ! you gave me my happy, vibrant and energetic doggie back !

Huge help ... but unsure of amount to give ...
Have been dealing with my pugs gastro issues for years ... bouts of vomiting and would be unsettled. Vet put him on id and then zd but he developed loose stools and after only a few days on wd he's doing great!
Only question though is about the feeding guidelines ... my pug is on the taller side and is 30 pounds, big for his breed but due to his height really only needs to lose about 5 pounds. However, the guidelines suggests over two cups a day for him and this seems like an enormous amount of food (even given the high fiber content) so I'm experimenting and hoping I'm not under-feeding the poor guy, hard to tell since he always acts hungry, he is a pug after all!

Huge cost increase..........Why?
The retail price of your food just jumped up by $10.00. I have been using your product for well over ten years and have never seen a price increase like this. My Old English Sheepdog, loves the food, but with this price increase I will start searching for an alternative. A 17.6 lbs bag (which in itself was a cost increase a few years ago when you went with a smaller bag for the same cost) should not have increased by $10.00. With lower fuel costs, I just don't understand how you justify this increase.
If I can find a replacement, you have lost a customer.

Expensive but worth it.
Although it's expensive, W/D has helped stabilize my 11 year old Chessie's weight since she became diabetic almost two years ago. At first she lost weight almost every month. Now she's at about 62 pounds (down from 80) and has energy for daily walks. As an added benefit, she has very regular and firm stools too. With all the other problems I've encountered since she became diabetic, including regulating her insulin, urinary tract infections, and cataracts, I'm glad her diet is not one of them,

We are still waiting to see if this product will help.
Our dog has bee placed on this diet due to having crystals in her urine and to see if this helps. She has had frequent UTI's and the urinalysis is showing crystals. She had been on the CD diet but still had the same problem and began gaining a lot of weight. Calli is just finishing antibiotics for another UTI and then our vet is going to repeat the urinalysis tosee if there are still crystals so as to determine if the crystals are showing just with the infection or if she still has them even after the infections is cleared.

This product has great benefits
Shar-peis are very sensitive dogs. This product has maintained my dog's digestive system under control. My dog is almost 12 years old with the demeanor of a teenager. He enjoys eating his food and since I started him on the Hills Prescription diet, he has never had a problem with his digestive system. I use the Hills Science Diet Advance Fitness (Small Bites) and Small & Toy Breed (Light) for my other dogs.

My dog loves this food
My Westie has been on this food for about 10 weeks and seems to be doing quite well.

I'm so glad that my diabetic dog loves the taste therefore helping his blood sugar regulation. It's a great product and my cat is on the prescription c/d and also loves the taste of his. Thank you :-)

Great for my diabetic dog and my other 3 love it also
We were worried at first that we would be spending so much more money on food because of the price per pound but that really hasn't happened since the ingredients are so much purer and real. My dogs are getting more nutrition per bite and that's wonderful.

This food obviously is the right thing for my diabetic dog. She is doing very well on it.

To expensive but dogs are doing great on it
I have 3 diabetic dogs and it's very expensive to feed 3 dogs twice a day

I think this food is expensive. we try to use your coupons when we can.
Pricey. Our dog is diabetic so this is the only food we"ve gotten from our vet. We have to mix a couple spoonfuls of canned food with it so he will eat it. It seems to be high quality.

My dog loves this food! I get peace of mind knowing he is eating healthy.

my dog likes it and it works for what she needed
our vet recomended this product. We are retired and the cost is higher than we were paying. Food helped her problem and she ate it ok.

My dog seems like the Ed food agrees much better than the previous.
My dogs seems to have better bathroom deposits- doesn't seem to have as much gas or discomfort. Some of the bloating has gone down.

Does the job.
it must be tasty because my other three dogs enjoy stealing it when they can.

glad there is a diabetic product
needs to be smaller pieses as in toy or smaller dog food. Most small dogs get diabetes. needs to have SUGAR content listed on all foods.

As an aid / supplement to regular kibble.
I have used W/D over the years to supplement a mixture of other non prescriptive dry kibble with the purpose in mind of adding significant fiber to my Rottie's diet. She is non-symptomatic, and I find that the addition of WD fills her without adding too much caloric content. Weight gain, then, becomes a non-issue, and even though I pay more for WD, the price is worth it! My pet weights a svelte 108 pounds...big for her breed but well proportioned and not overweight.

This product is way overpriced.
My dog is doing well on this food since he was diagnosed with a medical condition. However, the price is outrageous. Also coupons have only been available once and I'm not allowed to print anymore. I have to keep using it for his health, but I feel taken advantage of by the price.

Great dog food!
With four dogs, one of which is diabetic, we had to find a quality dog food that everyone will eat. Even though they are very picky eaters, we have been completely satisfied with the result from w/d. They eat it all and are healthy, happy, shiny dogs.

After having some Gastrointestinal issues we switched to W/D Prescription Diet and a powdered proboitc, NO MORE issues. We have our Bailey dog back. Thank you Hills Science Diet.

Worked and still working for our pet
Our Bichon has been on tis prescription food for almost 7 years. Before starting this, she had much trouble relieving herself. On this food, she has had no problem. It is the only food she gets (besides an occasional treat or handful of cheerios) and she still actively seeks and eats. If we are more than 15 minutes past mealtime, she will come and sit and stare until she gets fed. Must be pretty tasty to her. Only hiccup is the price. If it remains the same, the size bag goes down. We have been making use of coupons offered by Hill's.

This is the only food that my dog can eat due to sensitivity. She loves it!

w/d helped to prolong my pug's life
2 years into Delilah's young life, she was 30 pounds and lethargic. Our vet did a blood test only to find out she was diabetic. He immediately told us to switch her food to w/d and startd her on 5 units of Insulin twice a day. Within a year, she lost almost half her body weight and re-gained the energy and activitity level relative to her age. 6 years later, she is still on w/d and insulin and alive. Thank you Hill's!

Thank very much for eliminating the pop-top on the 13 ounce can of W/d dog food.
I purchased a case of your food on Friday 9/19/14 and was very pleased to find the "old-style" cans back on the shelves in force.
You said you were going to do it and you did.
Thank you so much for listening and keeping your word.
And now, I will keep buying your product... : )

This product is fantastic!
We have 3 babies, one of which is overweight. Not only is she losing weight, but the other two dogs won't eat anything but this product.

This product works great with my dog.
Excellent prescription food to treat my Golden's specific needs. A good quality product. Price is on the high end, but the benefits are worth the money.
