Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets Hypoallergenic Dry Dog Food
Purina Proplan Veterinary Diets Canine HA Hypoallergenic is carefully formulated to help you diagnose and manage most food allergies your dog could be suffering from.
How it works
Proteins and carbohydrates, like chicken and wheat, can sometimes cause allergies in your dog. This food is hypoallergenic and hydrolysed, which means the proteins and carbohydrate sources have been broken down and purified to prevent allergic reactions. This allows you to use it as a base for an elimination diet to find out which food group your dog has an intolerance to.
Fatty acids are also included in the form of omega-3 and omega-6, which boost your dog’s natural allergy defence. Natural ingredients including fish oil, soya protein, and coconut oil provide all the nutrition your dog needs while reducing the risk of a reaction.
- proteins are broken down into tiny components which won’t cause allergic reactions in your dog
- carbohydrates are purified to prevent allergic reactions
- fatty acids give your dog additional protection against inflammation
- formulated to be suitable for both adult dogs and puppies.
When to use it
Food allergies could affect your dog regardless of size or breed, although they usually develop in dogs under three years old. An allergy happens when your dog’s immune system over-reacts to something in their diet. The most common cause tends to be proteins such as dairy, beef, chicken, and corn. These same proteins are also very common in normal dog foods. Symptoms of an allergic reaction can include itchy skin around the face, ears, feet, and forelegs, and general skin infections. A food allergy can be hard to pinpoint however, and your vet could recommend a dietary trial, or ‘elimination diet’.
Using a food like Purina ProPlan Veterinary Diets Canine HA Hypoallergenic won’t provoke any allergic responses, so is often a good place to start. That said, this food is also a great choice if your dog suffers from digestive problems, as the formula is very sensitive on your dog’s stomach.
Because veterinary diets are formulated for the nutritional support of pets with specific clinical conditions, we recommend that you only use them under professional advice. For more information on feeding Purina ProPlan Veterinary Diets Canine HA Hypoallergenic to your dog, please consult your veterinary surgeon.

It solved my dogs upset stomach in a very short timeMy greyhound had an easily upset stomach from when we first got her from a re-homing centre. Then it got so bad we went through months of tests, etc. with the vet and nothing helped. She ended up with pancreatitis. Finally he put her on HA and she was better within a few weeks. She can now have some plain foods added, turkey, duck, etc. although nothing with grains. The vet told us to keep her on HA permanently as it works so well. I now have a happy dog without a permanent stomach problem.
