Our 15 year old diabetic dog was doing well on the Purina Diabetic food until the manufacturer stopped supplies by VETS. We were moved to Hills W/D by the vets recommendation and then suffered with a dog who poo’d constantly. He went 3 times a day on the Purina diet but it seems this stuff made him go lots and indoors something he had never done in the past. It was almost as if the poor chap had to go every 2 hours. Our vets wanted to change him to something else, but we have managed to source the Purina Diabetic food by the internet and we are going to get him moved back to the food that suited him and kept him stable. Our question is whether the Purina has been withdrawn from market completely or just withdrawn from certain vets or have vets made that decision themselves?
Hayley ummm… it says right at the top: “Hill’s Prescription Diet L/D canned dog food is not rated due to its intentional no meat therapeutic design.”

I wish I had read all the reviews on this dog food. My 9 year shih tzu/Bichon was put to sleep on Saturday June 3rd for having pancreatitis and liver issues. He has been on Hills Diet d/d dog food for allergies. In March he got bad to the point of scratching and biting his hair off, becoming raw and smelling of yeast infection. The vet changed him to the z/t brand of Hills Diet and had different shampoo and conditioner. The rash went away and skin healed up. Sometime during the end of the first bag and start of the second 8lb bag he started having problems peeing and diarrhea started. He was scheduled for his shots and yearly check-up. Was told that this could just be bladder infection. I took him back in due the same issues as well as he was losing strength in his hind legs as well as losing weight.My 1-year-old puppy was a rescue. Shortly after adopting him, he went into acute kidney failure. So prescription Hills KD was recommended after he recovered. He was on that food for 2 1/2 years until recently. The 3 reasons why this dog food is a ripoff: 1. It now costs $90.00 for a 27 pound bag which is ridiculous as it has been around for years and years. 2. I cannot afford it on what I make. 3. My dog has now got a never ending rash and no hair left on his tummy. I thought, "Could it really be a coincidence that a few days after I started him on the Hills metabolic diet he got so deathly ill?" I began researching online and found hundreds and hundreds of complaints From consumers that also purchased Hills products. Some of them ranged from their pets becoming deathly ill and some even reported the unfortunate death of their pets! I couldn't believe what I was reading. How could this be happening to so many people and this product still be on the market and the veterinarian still be prescribing it. Well I will tell You why! It is a huge moneymaking racket for veterinarians. They get Enormous kickbacks from the Hills company! Unfortunately dog food is not regulated by the FDA I so it is difficult to identify and report a problem. I am completely beside myself that such a horrific thing is going on! After several months and vet visits, my brother finally recommended I use the vet he uses for his cats. When I went for the appointment I was told that the metabolic food is too harsh for some dogs and they do not tolerate it well. My baby was prescribed not just one medication but 3 different medications. It did the trick and we haven't had any bloody stools since. My baby has been on Hills Rx low fat ID since then with no problems. It wasn't the ID but the metabolic food that was causing all the trouble.
