What Does Hills a D Stand For?
Answer

Why Do Vets Recommend Hills?
Answer

Hills is among the only three brands in the US that make prescription diets for dogs. Reportedly, the brand has years and years of research and food trials to back their claims of what their prescription diet foods can do. Because of this reason, veterinarians tend to recommend the top three brands to most pet parents. However, no two foods are the same, and it's recommended that you please consult your veterinarian before introducing a new diet for your pet. Research has shown that simply meeting the AAFCO standards in the composition is not enough as some lesser-known ingredients may cause dog health issues. Therefore, vets tend to stick to clinically proven adequate dog food, and Hills is among the only three brands that have been proven to be effective for dogs.

Is Hill's Prescription Diet Good For Dogs?
Answer

Hill's prescription diet claims to offer science-based therapeutic nutrition to dogs in need. The prescription diet food from Hill's is suitable for dogs with particular health conditions or specialized needs in terms of nutrition. The brand has several specialized foods for different conditions in dogs with names such as b/d, c/d, d/d, g/d, etc. The 'D' in the name stands for diet, whereas the alphabet represents the condition it specializes in. To illustrate, in the products mentioned above, the alphabets stand for the brain, crystal, dermatology, and geriatric diet. Since these are specialized dog food, always consult your veterinarian for further information.

Do I Need a Prescription for Hill's Prescription Dog Food?
Answer

No, technically, you don't need a prescription for Hill's prescription dog food. If you are purchasing the food directly from a vet, you can buy it over the counter without needing a prescription. However, many online retailers selling the Hill's Prescription Diet line of foods require a legit prescription from a licensed vet before you can make the purchase. This is because the retailers don't want to get into a soup with the manufacturer for any issues that may crop up. Moreover, involving a veterinarian is a good idea since the prescription diet is meant for specific conditions and might cause medical conditions if fed without guidance.

What Is the Difference Between Hill's Science Diet and Prescription Diet?
Answer

Both Hill's Science Diet and Prescription Diet dog foods are pretty popular among pet parents in the US. However, these two lines of food from the brand cater to two different purposes. The Hill's Prescription Diet line is a specially formulated dog food to address specific health conditions in pets. On the other hand, the Hill's Science Diet pet food is more commercial food that has been formulated to meet the nutritional needs of pets during various life stages to promote happy and active life. While Hill's Prescription Diet is available through vets, Pet parents can buy Science Diet from vets, pet specialty stores, feed stores, and other such businesses.

How Can I Get My Dog To Eat His Prescription Food?
Answer

Switching the diet of your pet could be a task, especially if you have a picky eater at your hands. The best way to get your dog to eat prescription food is to follow a slow transition schedule by gradually mixing the prescription with the existing diet and increasing the quantity. For the first few feedings, try hand-feeding by holding the kibbles of food in your hand and giving it to your pet in small portions. Another trick is to add a little warm water to the food to soften it or add a small amount of low-sodium chicken broth or tuna water to flavor it.
