What Does Hills a D Stand For?
Answer

The Hills a/d has a consistency of applesauce and provides complete nutrition for pets. According to the manufacturer, Hill's prescription diet a/d is for pets who are being tube-fed because of oral surgery or some other illness.

Moreover, this particular food has a highly palatable flavor to encourage appetite in sick pets and promote feeding.

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

Yes, you must have a veterinarian prescription for ordering Hillโ€™s prescription foods. But you must not worry if you do not have one, as the PetCareRX team will contact your veterinarian and help you out with it. Generally, the pet stores and veterinarians do not sell these prescription diets without a valid veterinarian prescription as it could look promotional and biased for the manufacturers. Also, these prescribed diets have some medicinal values associated with them, and hence involving a veterinarian is a good option. Misuse and the wrong quantity of diets can also worsen the health conditions of your pet.

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.

An HONEST review

My precious 15 yr old boy has canine cognitive dysfunction, and the vet recommended this food back in May. He has now been on it 2 months, and I was hoping to see more improvement. Essentially I've seen minimal. He doesn't go to the hinged side of the door anymore but there are still many days of pacing, getting stuck in various places, restless nights. I truly am skeptical of pretty much all the other glowing reviews. And as dar as someone saying within 4 days they had a new dog I say they're flat out lying. I am likely keeping him on this food for the remainder of his life, and I accept the fact that it just may not provide much benefit for him.

Great Resuls

Within 4 days my 16 year old miniature fox terrier has gone from an anxious, incontinent and defensive mess (psychologically), back to her usual friendly, relaxed, continent and settled self. Although the food is expensive, it is worth every cent.

Game changer

Our 13.5 yr. old Lab had surgery to remove an abscessed molar and afterwards he was very disoriented, restless and needy. Our vet suggested we try this food. Within two weeks he was a different dog. His energy level increased such that he now engages our Papillon puppy in play for up to an hour at a time; whereas before the puppy would engage him and he would only be interested for a few minutes. I still can't believe the difference-it's like he gained two years on his life. Every day is a blessing!

This product works!

My 17 year old Jack Russell Terriers was showing signs of cognitive issues. After being on the food for less than 2 weeks, she was back to her old self and doing senior 'zoomies' through the house. She calmed down and stopped pacing the floor so much. She seems much happier.

i love this dog food

My 13 year old suffers from dementia. Walks around pacing and whining a lot. She's very confused. She has gotten better since being on this food. She's still a little confused but not as much. We noticed a huge difference and the price is high for this food but worth it when you see you pet doing better.

I have my dog back
VERIFIED PURCHASER

This summer my 15+ year old basenji mutt was diagnosed with CCD. It was the most heartwrenching thing I have ever seen. My vet suggested this, as she had other pets show a good response. I was hopeful, but not optimistic. Well, in two weeks I saw my little buddy come back to me. He's not a kid anymore, but the transformation after five months is simply wonderful.

Good description on package on need for diet
VERIFIED PURCHASER

My vet ordered prescriptive Digestive Care for my 16 year old Maltese who was having frequent stomach issues on regular Hills Bran because of sensitive GI Tract . This change has made a great difference in this problem,and I am so pleased with the results. I am so happy to see my dog feeling so much better. I have called customer service in the past and have always been taken care of with knowledge and caring.

My Corgi has a new lease on life.

Between receiving a B12 injection recently and the new dog food my dog has nearly completely changed. His eyesight and hearing are still problematic but his energy level has greatly increased. He no longer walks into a room wondering why he is there, he is no longer thirsty around the clock (B12 helps with this), he loves to go on walks, and is generally a "different dog." The signs of cognitive decline started when he turned 13 and he s now 13.8. He had the shot a week ago and has been on b/d for a week as well.

Quality of Life Improved

My 9 year old Chinese Crested dog starting having behavioral issues, such as soiling in the house and howling while sitting in the middle of a room. He started acting more and more confused with every day living situations. My veterinarian recommended I try Hill's B/D and it has made a huge difference in our lives. He no longer sits and howls, asks to go outside again and is altogether a happy dog! And I am a happy owner. Amazing what a diet can do to help with the cognitive function of our pets to help enrich the last years of their life.

This product was fantastic

My 11 1/2 year old german short-haired pointer had blood work done that indicated kidney problems and when the results came back all his numbers were elevated. It was recommended by my vet to use this food and after 3 weeks I had to return him to the vet for another issue and they tested his blood again and they all came back in the normal range. I was amazed how fast the food helped him. The transition from his regular food to this product was easy with no side effects.
