Periodontal disease and gingivitis are huge problems for the majority of pets in this country. Numerous studies have shown that periodontal disease is a very significant contributor to shortened lifespan, and predisposes our four footed friends to infections of the liver, kidneys and heart. Hills T/D is a prescription diet designed to remove accumulated tartar and prevent new tartar from adhering to the tooths' surface. This simple preventative measure can prevent the formation of periodontal disease and drastically decrease the necessity for dental cleanings under anesthesia. Here's a link to "The Bite Stuff", a recent segment from PBS's award winning series Scientific American Frontiers, in which host Alan Alda explores the development and benefits of this revolutionary diet.

Hills D/D Diet
Skin disease is among the most common issues that we see in general practice. While there are a wide variety of causes for each variety of lesion, many are the result of underlying food allergies. Hills D/D combines novel protein and carbohydrate sources with a strong dose of Salmon Oil, providing the maximum daily allowance of Omega-3 Fatty acid, a proven anti-inflammatory agent for itchy, inflamed skin. D/D's Salmon and Potato based formula is highly palatable and is just the thing for a shiny, glossy coat and healthy supple, itch-free skin.
