For the nutritional management of pets with heart disease.
Heart disease is a condition frequently found in ageing dogs. The most commonly seen heart diseases are due to a less efficiently working heart valve or heart muscle. This will lead to fluid retention and discomfort for your dog. Fluid retention is in response to a less efficient heart function and can be made more problematic with foods that are high in sodium. Other nutrients such as L-carnitine and taurine (particularly for the cat) are important for good functioning of the heart muscle.
Prescription Diet Canine H/D is formulated to help manage the symptoms of heart disease and related fluid retention.

My 11 year old Westie, Toby, was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease several years ago. It took a while to find a diet that he could tolerate and also enjoy. Hills diet proved to be `the one` and Toby has lived an active and healthy life as a result. I am reassured that he is receiving a highly nutritious diet that is easily digested, and that he enjoys with great enthusiasm! I find that feeding him smaller amounts 3-4 times a day is perfect for his digestion. I (and Toby!) would recommend this produc
