Hill's Prescription Diet Liver Care l/d Dry Dog Food - Pork
Hill's Prescription Diet Liver Care l/d is a complete food specially formulated to help dogs struggling with reduced liver function return to normal health.
How it works
In the event of a liver disorder, your dog can struggle to digest food and absorb nutrients. Hill's Prescription Diet Canine L/D is made with highly digestible proteins, carbohydrates, and fats to reduce the workload of the liver tissue allowing it to regenerate.
Hill's Prescription Diet Canine L/D is designed to supply essential nutrients that can be lost when a dog is suffering from liver disease. It has increased zinc and vitamin K, as well as potassium. These essential nutrients help to maintain your dog’s growth and immune system while they recover from their illness.
Finally, a high level of amino acids L-carnitine and L-arginine helps to metabolise fat and increase circulation. This helps to counteract weight gain and increased fat build up in the liver. The food’s reduced copper content helps to prevent the element from building up in the liver.
