Purina Veterinary Diet Canine HA Hypoallergenic Dry Dog Food - 11Kg
PURINA VETERINARY DIETS HA is a complete hypoallergenic veterinary diet for the diagnosis and management of food allergies in dogs of all ages, including puppies. Some dogs may suffer from food allergy, which can cause skin discomfort and/or digestive upsets. PVD HA is a true hypoallergenic diet formulated with a single protein and carbohydrate source and, in addition, the protein has been broken down (hydrolysed) into very tiny components that are too small to cause an allergic reaction,. Such hydrolysed diets are recognised as the best type of food to use during an 'elimination diet trial' when trying to diagnose (or rule out) food allergy. During such a trial it is important that your dog is fed no other food or treats. PVD HA is also useful for dogs with severe bowel disease such as IBD as it is particularly highly digestible.
- Single hydrolysed protein broken down into tiny components too small to cause any allergic reaction
- Purified carbohydrates to reduce the risk of an allergic reaction occurring
- Added omega-3 fatty acids to help maximise natural anti-inflammatory process.

Return to health for my dog

My 6-year-old flat-coated retriever was diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease following blood in stools, gastritis and subsequent abnormal blood results and scan at The Willows Hospital in Solihull. She has been on Purina HA for 8 weeks and her blood results have returned to normal, her energy levels are slowly improving, her coat looks so much better, and she has regained her normal happy personality. She misses all the side treats she used to have (especially cheese and apple cores) but we have been instructed to exclude ALL other food. It seems a small price to pay for a healthy dog and she is beginning to accept that a bit of her kibble is all that's on offer. We shall probably have to keep her on HA for the rest of her life.

My retriever has colitis and had been dogged (pardon the pun) with bloody diarrhoea but now along with his salazopyrin medication and this food he is now a very happy healthy dog.

My Labrador bitch, aged 10 years, was diagnosed with irritable bowel disease five months ago. Along with prescribed medication, the vet from the Willows Vet Hospital in Solihull recommended that Jodie (my dog) only be fed Purina HA henceforth. Since then, Jodie's two small feeds a day, am and pm, have consisted solely of Purina HA; as have any treats, ie a couple of the Purina HA pellets equals one treat for Jodie. She loves the food and wolfs it down. I have also found that capsules/tablets taken as part of her treatment go down in one gulp when added to a few Purina HA pellets given in my open hand. Purina HA will be the only source of food and treats for Jodie from hereon.
