Our min-pin was put on Hills I/D after almost dying from a bout of pancreatitis a few years ago. The corn and grains in this food almost killed him. I found Royal Canin low fat low fiber canned and although the ingredient list was full of crap, he did okay on it until the recently changed the formula and now it has no meat at all (even by products) at all and his stools are yellow (color of the food) and mushy and round. I have been having the worst time trying to find him a quality canned (easier for us to hide meds in…he has other problems) low fat (less than 10%) and low fiber (he does much better on a lower fiber) dog food with quality ingredients that I can divide into three small meals a day. Our vet chain sells Hills and we had him on three different kinds (r/d and w/d also) at different times in his 6 short years, and the grains in these foods he could just not digest and it upset his whole digestive tract from top to bottom. I would not recommend them to anyone.

Hills Prescription Diet I d Low Fat at PetFoodDirect
Another recent reviewer (2/12/2017) claimed that this dog food - Hill's Prescription Diet digestive care i/d low fat - contains propylene glycol. So, I took a close look for myself at the ingredients listed on 1)a new 27.5lb bag received today from Pet360, 2) the Pet360 web site, and 3) the Hill's PD website, and there is absolutely no mention anywhere of propylene glycol as an ingredient in this particular brand of dog food. Maybe it is an older bag or another brand of Hill's Science dog food. Finally, I contacted the company and they confirmed that there is no propylene glycol in this bag of dry dog food. I will continue to use it so long as it works for me and my dog.
