Prescription Diets For Dogs
Veterinarians usually prescribe a special diet for dogs with special dietary needs. Dogs with food allergies, diabetes, heart disease, kidney problems, digestive problems, and certain forms of cancer benefit from being placed on a special diet. Depending on the dog’s needs, he may be placed on a prescription diet for a specific length of time only or eat a special diet for the rest of his life. Prescription diets should only be given as per recommendation of your veterinarian. Healthy dogs don’t have any need for prescription diets which are also quite expensive compared to the usual kibble and canned pet food. If your dog has been diagnosed with a certain health issue that needs a special dietary formula, make sure to get only the one that’s prescribed by your Lafayette, LA vet.
