Prescription dog food can help you manage your dog’s specific health issues through his daily diet. These formulas require a prescription and are typically prescribed as part of your pet’s overall health plan under the care of a veterinarian. Vet recommended dog food differs from the average over-the-counter food because it’s created to treat a specific health condition. There are many types to choose from including vet recommended wet dog food, vet recommended dry dog food and vet recommended dog treats. Non-prescription foods, on the other hand, are made to feed pets that are in relatively good overall health.
