Iams Response KO - Kangaroo & Oat Hypoallergenic dog food: Iams KO sold at Prairie View Animal Hospital

Start to nutritionally manage your dogs itching, whether from food or environment, in as little as 3 weeks. The nutrition in Iams Veterinary Formulas Skin & Coat - Response KO formula can help nutritionally manage your dog's itching and scratching. So whether his sensitivities are coming from food, his environment or both, you can promote a healthy skin and coat through:

  • a balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in ingredients such as canola and fish oil, can nutritionally manage your dog's or cat's itching and scratching
  • a combination of unique proteins and carbohydrates, which can reduce the risk of a reaction to food
  • a complete vitamin and mineral package, which restores nutrients to develop a healthy skin and coat
  • an optimal level of linoleic acid, which is found in high-quality animal-based protein (without enough linoleic acid, your pet may experience a dull/dry coat, hair loss, oily skin, and increased susceptibility to skin inflammation)

How can Response formulas help?

Response Formula is designed to aid in the nutritional management of skin and coat health in several ways. First is through fatty acids. Specific types, called omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, are important. Response KO has an adjusted balance of these two fatty acid types.

Second, Response Formula includes alternate protein and carbohydrate sources, which can be important if your veterinarian suspects that your pet's skin condition may have a food sensitivity component. Response KO, for example, contains protein from kangaroo and carbohydrates from oats.

And the dry formula has micro-cleansing crystals to help reduce tartar buildup across the whole mouth during and after meals.
