Feeding Guide

Daily Feeding Guide:

Important Feeding Information

  • These amounts are a starting point only. Your dog may need less or more food to maintain proper weight. Adjust as needed. If you are unsure, ask your veterinarian.
  • With your veterinarian's approval, mix increasing amounts of your dog's new food with decreasing amounts of the old food over a 7-day period. Prescription Diet formulas are available in a wide variety of dry foods and treats for your dog's unique needs, and canned foods with delicious flavors your dog will love. Supplementation with other foods or treats is unnecessary and may decrease the effectiveness of the food. When using with treats, decrease the amount of dry food to avoid overfeeding.
  • Keep fresh water available at all times!
  • For best results, have your veterinarian monitor your dog's condition.
  • To prevent suffocation, keep this plastic bag out of the reach of pets and children.

Elderly dog My 14 year old dog was recently diagnosed with dementia. He began barking at the walks and crying when I'm not home. I did some research on diet an dementia and found this food. After reading about this food, I decided to give it a try. I slowly added it to my dogs food until after about a week, I had completely transitioned him. After approximately one-two weeks, I noticed that he wasn't always crying when I came home, and just a general calm about him. I have to believe that this det most definitely has had a very positive impact n my dogs health. Very glad I purchased this, and I recommend it to anyone looking for good nutrition for their elderly pet! January 3, 2014
This product provided outstanding results fast!!!! I have a 15 1/2 year old mini daschund who was diagnosed with canine dimentia also called CDS. It began with her getting confused and going to the wrong side of the door, getting her days and nights confused and wandering aimlessly throughout the house. Recently her cognitive health declined and she began to get worse. She became less repsonsive, would seem to be spaced out and appear lost in normal surroundings and she began to get stuck in corners or in front of things and not know how to turn around and get out or realize that she could just walk away. My vet suggested I try the the B/D dog food. All of my dogs eat Scient Diet food and 2 of them eat the W/D by Hill's due to issues with their weight. I had my doubts as to the results but after only 2 days of being on the B/D we have seen dramatic results! I am AMAZED!!! She is more responsive and aware of her surroundings. She is sleeping better at night and staying awake more during the day. When she walks to a place where she would have gotten stuck in before she stops and its clear that she is thinking about what to do. She then turns herself around and walks away. I am impressed and will not be feeding her anything else. THANK YOU Hill's! March 20, 2013
Absolutely recommended My male pug is 14 years old and 3 years ago I noticed age-related changes at his behaviour. I made a research and decided to put him on Hill's Prescription Diet B/D. The results were obvious even from the 3rd week. If you don't believe in miracles, my little precious dog is a proven miracle. February 11, 2013
Great Taste Since switching my dog to this his weight is good and his coat looks better. Plus he loves the taste. July 7, 2014
Still Evaluating Still early in the use of this product. I have used this for about three weeks based on recommendation from my vet. I have to mix the product with the wet version to get my dog to eat it. I am hoping it will eventually help my Bechon with food allergies which cause dark brown spots on his fur coming from saliva where he licks him self. Time will tell. June 14, 2014
only one that really works standard poodles have finicky digestive systems..this is the only dog food that works completely.. June 11, 2014
It really does work, it really makes a difference! I have an 18yr old mixed-breed. This was highly recomended by a Vet who I thoroughly trust, and knows my dog well and for a long time. In a nutshell it really helped her brain function, considering her age. I never give an endorsement like this, but will keep her on this for the rest of her life! It is kinda pricey from the Vet that I'm currently with, but you get what you pay for. All things considered, its well worth it! June 10, 2014
The only product that doesn't cause digestive issues This is the only product I've found that doesn't give my dog diarrhea. It is very expensive though. He also refuses to eat the food dry unless he is REALLY hungry, which then gives him diarrhea again because he waited too long between meals. To get him to eat it regularly, I have to mix moist food with it which makes feeding him even more expensive. It also isn't very convenient to have to buy it from the vet's office. Since it is so expensive, the vet doesn't carry large bags of it and has to special order it for me. May 25, 2014
