what brand name dog food can I get my dog who has cancer and arthritis and cannot eat food with fiber in it. I have been giving him Hills Prescription I/D dog food but in only comes in Turkey and chicken.
Currently he is on Pallada, gabapentin and deramaxx. Can those all be given throughout the day.

Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

The Hill's food that you are currently feeding does contain fiber in either rice or corn, depending on whether you're feeding I/D or L/D (respectively). You may want to look, also, at Hill's N/D which is formulated for dogs with cancer.

If fiber content is a concern, consider visiting and having a special homemade formula tailored to Sesue's specific needs without fiber content.

The medications that you are currently given can be given throughout the day, but their dosing frequency should be followed based on what your vet has recommended.
