My 16 year old dog has been diabetic for 6 years. At the advice of my vet, she was put on Hills Science Diet w/d. The vet also advised us that she could have beef, chicken and some vegetables (corn was a huge NO). One day, I actually looked at the ingredients on the bag of w/d…the first item listed was CORN! At that point, I went to my local pet store, spoke with the owner about what I was looking for. I decided to try the chicken and pearl millet. My dog’s glucose has leveled and she is doing much better than she ever did on the Hill’s foods! She has been on the Canine Caviar for 4 years now. At her last checkup a month ago, my vet said she is in excellent condition, and if not for the cancer she also has, she would live to be at least 23 years old!

I have my dog on Hills Canine w/d. I had to switch my dog to w/d because of runny stools. Is there an over-the-counter dog food that works as well or that it is comparable to w/d?
Hill's Prescription Diet w/d Digestive/Weight/Glucose ..
My tiny Min Pin, who is diabetic, had been on Hills W/D prescription food for over a year. In July of 2015, the bag I purchased ($25 for 8 lbs.) looked different and was a bit more expensive. I was told that a flavor enhancer had been added but that the food was basically the same. After using the rest of the original food, I opened the new formula food. It smelled bad, but my dog ate it, as he was also getting Hills wet food with it. He was not enthusiastic about eating after that first feeding. Within two days, he became very ill. His belly was distended and his anal sphincter was swollen to ten times the normal size. He couldn't poop and was obviously in extreme distress and very ill.The Hill’s Prescription Diet W/D Canine product line lists two canned dog foods, each designed to help in the treatment of digestive disorders, weight management or diabetes.
