Purina Veterinary Diets® DRM Dermatologic Management® Canine Formula
The role of dietary management in canine atopy, dermatitis and other inflammatory skin conditions is to provide a proper balance of total nutrients while meeting the special dietary needs of the patient. Nutritional management of dermatitis involves providing nutrients that can support healthy skin and help to reduce the production of inflammatory mediators. Essential fatty acids, key vitamins and amino acids, and trace minerals such as zinc, are critical to healthy skin.
