Comprehensive Guide To Hill's Prescription Diet Derm Defense Environmental Sensitivities Dry Dog Food

What Is Hill's Prescription Diet Derm Defense Environmental Sensitivities Dry Dog Food?

Is your dog itching and scratching all the time? Do they have chronic ear infections? Are they losing weight and seem uninterested in food? Sounds like Canine Atopic Dermatitis (C.A.D.), a common skin condition in dogs. Hill's Prescription Diet Derm Defense Environmental Sensitivities Dry Dog Food is made to treat these symptoms!

What Is Canine Atopic Dermatitis (C.A.D.)?

Canine Atopic Dermatitis (C.A.D.) is a condition where your dog has environmental allergies. It is one of the most common reasons why dogs scratch themselves constantly. The condition occurs when your dog is sensitive to multiple triggers in the environment. These triggers are known as allergens.

If your dog has environmental allergies, you will notice them scratching themselves to the point of injury. This condition is marked by chronic ear infections, meaning persistent infections that keep recurring repeatedly. You will even notice your dogs chewing on their paws, which will look irritated and red.

While allergic reactions often present in humans as runny nose and eyes, this is very rare in dogs. Your dog is at an increased risk of developing skin infections. The root cause of environmental allergies is usually genetics and the environment. You could research your dog's medical ancestry to find predispositions if your vet asks for it.

How Does Hill's Prescription Diet Derm Defense Environmental Sensitivities Dry Dog Food Help?

Hill's Prescription Diet Derm Defense Environmental Sensitivities Dry Dog Food is clinically formulated by qualified vets and vet nutrition experts to help with the symptoms of these allergies specifically. Whether your dog is allergic to pollen or dust, or anything else, this diet will soothe your dog's irritations so they can live a happy, healthy life.

Hill's Prescription Diet Derm Defense Environmental Sensitivities Dry Dog Food contains a unique blend of bioactive agents and phytonutrients that soothe the skin. This diet has added omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids that nourish your dog's skin and coat, which often become dehydrated due to allergies and scratching.

This means that this diet is made with the highest quality ingredients. Real chicken is used instead of chicken meal, and there are no artificial dyes, flavors, or preservatives. These invisible allergens trigger reactions in many dogs that are difficult to link to their food!

How Much Hill's Prescription Diet Derm Defense Environmental Sensitivities Dry Dog Food Should I Give My Dog?

The amount of Hill's Prescription Diet Derm Defense Environmental Sensitivities Dry Dog Food that your dog depends on your dog's weight. You could use the following guidelines:

60 lb 375g
