Traditionally, skin sensitivities have been a frustrating experience for everyone involved—uncomfortable for the itching pet with irritated skin, and disruptive for pet parents just trying to get a good night’s sleep. And figuring out what to do next can be expensive and time-consuming.
But with Hill’s latest innovation, we can work to make that a thing of the past. Now you can use nutrition to start to help manage itching, whether the cause is environmental or food related, right from the first visit with Prescription Diet Derm Complete. In fact, Derm Complete demonstrated equivalent control of clinical signs including scratching, head shaking and sleep quality as a competitor hydrolysed protein therapeutic foodª in a 21 day feeding trial among dogs with a history of food allergies¹,² PLUS it helps manage environmental allergies.
How does it work for environmental allergies?
Derm Complete features HistaGuard Complex, a proprietary blend of bioactives and phytonutrients, which helps to normalise the immune system reaction to environmental allergens. It also contains an appropriate omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratio to help manage inflammation. Owners reported a reduction in scratching in 82% of dogs with environmental allergies³.
How does it work for food allergies?
In addition to HistaGuard Complex, Derm Complete is made with egg as the single intact animal protein source—a high-quality protein that avoids 96% of food allergies in food allergic dogs and helps reduce itching. Visible skin healing was seen in as little as 21 days in dogs with food allergies².
So whether your patient is experiencing environmental allergies or food allergies, you can feel confident that Hill’s Prescription Diet Derm Complete is clinically tested nutrition for both conditions.
