    Product Details

    Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets HA Hydrolyzed Canine Formula may be prescribed for dogs with conditions including Dermatitis associated with food allergy, Pancreatitis, Gastronenteritis associated with food allergies, Exocrine Pancreatic insufficiency, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Malabsorption and Hyperlipidemia.
    Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets Formula HA Hypoallergenic is a highly digestible diet containing a single hydrolyzed protein source and a low allergen carbohydrate source.

    This unique formula is also a vegetarian diet. Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets HA Hydrolyzed brand Canine Formula provides complete and balanced nutrition for the growth of puppies and maintenance of the adult dog and has been formulated to achieve the following characteristics:

    Modified protein source with an average molecular weight below 12,200 daltons
    High digestibility
    Single protein source
    Source of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs)-23% of fat
    Medical Indications
    Diets with these nutritional modifications have been recommended for the following uses or for dogs with the following conditions:

    * Elimination diet for food trials
    * Dermatitis associated with food allergy
    * Gastroenteritis associated with food allergy
    * Pancreatic exocrine insufficiency
    * Protein losing enteropathy
    * Inflammatory Bowel Disease
    * Lymphangiectasia
    * Malabsorption
    * Hyperlipidemia

    Clinical Considerations
    The role of dietary management in canine food allergy is to provide a proper balance of total nutrients while meeting the special dietary needs of the patient. Most common food allergens are proteins with a molecular weight of 18,000 to 36,000 daltons. Protein modification is a process which alters the physical characteristics of protein molecules, reducing the antigenicity and rendering them less able to elicit an immune response. By reducing the molecular weight of the protein molecule below 18,000 daltons, this process can result in a protein that is truly hypoallergenic.

    Molly was itchy as a puppy, and it escalated her first year to feet and leg chewing. We tried various antihistamines but that couldn't control it. We finally resorted to prednisone shots to calm her down after she developed open sores and followed that with a decreasing regimen of prednisone pills in conjunction with antibiotics. She still would have breakout sessions every few months. We finally ran blood work when she was 1 1/2 yrs old and determined what her food and environmental allergy sources were. We then put her on an 8 week food trial and changed her food to the recommended prescription food from another manufacturer (recommended as one of several dog foods by the lab that processed her blood work) . She ate nothing but the Rx food and we used carrots as treats. It did reduce her itching and we eventually phased the prednisone down to 1/2 5mg pill every other day, but could never get her off it completely. She continued to lick her rear area and feet regularly, but at least was free of any open sores. She would occasionally relapse and get some sores once or twice a year, but after another pred regimen, she calmed down, but never completely. We also tried Atopica, Gold Bond powder, Absorbine Jr., topical sprays and shampoos, and almost everything else we heard about. We (the vets and myself) had tried everything short of skin testing and allergy shots. Nothing worked for very long. We had solicited the advice of four different vets over the course of this entire 6 year process. Last December, she had an allergy outbreak and this time she began itching her back significantly, opening sores on her back. We quickly got her an injection to stop the itching, and started her healing process. She healed up in about 6 weeks with the help of meds, but continued to lick and chew her feet regularly. The vet suggested we change her dogfood again, although she didn't really believe it would help, but al least we could try. She called Purina and discussed the situaltion with their technical staff/vets. They said they have a food in their Veterinary Diets that is as pure as anything you can find on today's market for allergy free dog food. I agreed to try it (it's actually $10/bag less expensive than the other allergenic food). Molly did not like the food, because it supposedly has very little taste, but now she's used to it, and devours it as usual. Four weeks after she started the Purina HA Hypoallergenic food, all itching and licking stopped. Almost overnight. No prednisone (which she has been on for almost 6 years, albeit low doses most of the time) no antihistamines, nothing. She is healthy, active, happy, and sassier than ever. What I learned from this is that the expensive blood tests mean little or nothing for food allergies. Food trials are the only thing that tell you if a dog is allergic to food or not. And...allergenic dog food doesn't mean your dog isn't allergic to it. Keep trying different foods until you find the one that works. In Florida, she is exposed to many of those things that her blood work said she is highly allergic to in the environment, but she NEVER ITCHES anymore becuse her problem was the food all along, despte the environment. She sneezes, but she doesn't itch.I hope this experience can help other dog owners find a food that stops the itching like it did for Molly.

      Comments about Purina Veterinary Diets HA HypoAllergenic Canine Formula Dry:

      I am amazed that our dog likes this as well as he does. Clyde has many health problems including "leaky gut". When the Vet prescribed this, I balked as we can't get it locally making it more of a challenge to use this as his diet. However, after finding it and getting it, I am surprised how much he likes it. In fact, I had to purchase a special feeder to slow his eating down. He was practically inhaling it. It is a very strange consistency and color (white), but since he eats it and it is good for him, I am happy and so is he!

      Comments about Purina Veterinary Diets HA HypoAllergenic Canine Formula Dry:

      My puppy kept breaking out in hives constantly and the vet suggested I try this dog food and it worked! She hasn't had any signs of breaking out for over a month now! The only problem is that this dog food is very expensive and since she is a puppy, she goes through food like nothing!
