Understanding When to Feed Vet Recommended Dog Food

For any pet, having a well-balanced diet is important. And while there is a variety of over-the-counter foods you can consider, they might need something more specific. Vet recommended dog foods are formulated to help manage or treat medical conditions many pets live with. If you believe your canine could benefit from a therapeutic diet, have your veterinarian examine and diagnose them. With proper guidance, they can provide a prescription dog food that will be most helpful for their condition.

Before transitioning your canine to this category of food options, it helps to understand how vet recommended dog foods differ from over-the-counter diets. Designed by veterinary nutritionists and backed by scientific research, prescription pet foods take your canine’s age, breed, lifestyle, and health conditions into consideration when selecting ingredients. Because of this, they are not interchangeable and can only be prescribed by a licensed veterinarian.

Once your canine’s veterinarian identifies an illness or health concern, you can make the necessary changes to their diet. You will find vet recommended dog foods that help manage kidney disease, urinary tract crystals/stones, heart disease, diabetes mellitus, allergies, vomiting, and gastrointestinal issues. Petco offers a variety of brands including Hills Prescription Diet, Royal Canin Veterinary Diet, and others that can help provide the nutritional support your canine needs.

Here are a few medical conditions you can find specific formulas for:

Digestive care—Promotes the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut, replaces lost nutrients, and helps improve stool quality and regularity.

Urinary Support—Helps reduce the risk of non-struvite stone formation, supports kidney function, and provides the right balance of minerals for good bladder health.

Weight management—Works with your pet’s unique metabolism to help them feel full and satisfied between meals to avoid weight gain.

Skin and food sensitivities—Contains optimal amounts of vitamins and amino acids to help maintain the skin’s natural barrier, and limited ingredients to avoid common food allergens.

Kidney care—Helps enhance appetites, increase food intake, supports the natural ability to build lean muscle, and protects vital kidney and heart functions.

At Petco, you can order vet recommended dog food online. Add the item to your cart, fill in your pet and veterinarian’s information, and Petco will handle getting the prescription.
