Advance Veterinary Diets Leishmaniasis Dog Food
Advance Veterinary Diets Leishmaniasis Dog Food is a specially designed dry food to help manage the symptoms of this parasite infection, supporting kidney function and boosting the immune system.
How it works
Dogs with leishmaniasis needs extra support to live life to the full. This dry food contains all the ingredients they need to help manage their symptoms. It's designed to boost immunity against diseases without causing renal failure, as well as containing high levels of protein to support healthy muscles. Omega-3 and -6 are added to soothe skin inflammation and promote the growth of new fur, while a high fibre content is easy on a delicate digestive system. A low level of purine can help to prevent xanthine stones from forming in the urinary tract, which is a possible side effect of allopurinol treatment.
- Formulated for dogs with leishmaniasis
- Vitamin C supports natural defences
- Boosts blood cell immunity to help avoid infections
- Protein supports kidney function
- Omega oils soothe inflamed skin
- Low phosphorus level prevents glomerular dysfunction

Great foodSadly my 2 year old Cyprus rescue dog has recently been dygnosed with Leish Obviously we’re testing him but I honestly think this food is helping too His coat and feet aren’t as dry and most importantly his poop is ‘normal’ He seems to go less too than when he was in a wet compressed food thinking initially he’d developed an allergy to his other dry food. I will Certainly continue to feed him this food.
great product and Medicanimal is a great company to buy fromI have used this food for my boxer dog since she was first diagagnosed with Leish 3 years ago I am convinced it is helping to keep any symtons and flare up at bay an excellent product
My dog loves this!Phoebe is a Greek rescue with leish. I was searching the net for low purine food, when I found the Medicanimal website, with the diet food I needed for her. The free delivery was speedy, and the loyalty credit makes such a difference to the price, and well worth ordering again. Phoebe absolutely loves this food, she was actually drooling when I opened it on arrival. To stop her getting bored I mix it with a raw egg, or a little zero fat Greek yoghurt; which helps the tablets for leish go down nicely, or white fish. I also love the zip close bag, which keeps the food fresh. An all round winner for us.
Calypso is thriving on thisCalypso has Leish and I put him on this food after his course of Milteforan this summer in order to give him the best possible chance of doing well. The Milteforan brought his bloods back to normal and I am sure that the Advanced diet is helping maintain his health. It seems to be very palatable and keeps moist in the zip-up bag. I mix it for variety with a bit of coconut oil or raw egg or even a big of Chappie the lowest protein meat, I think and 6 months on Calypso's coat is growing back well and his energy levels are back up. The food is expensive but MedicAnimal have regular promotions so it's usually possible to get a discount. Plus the loyalty reward scheme is helpful too. I suspect I feed a few grams more than the recommended amount of kibble, but Calypso had lost weight and needed to build back up to his 44kg. Personally, I am very grateful to have a ready-made Leish food that can do all the purine-counting for me and which Calypso seems to be thriving on.
