Hills Prescription Diet Canine L/D is designed for the nutritional management of disorders that cause reduced liver function, while promoting liver repair and regeneration. It contains highly digestible proteins, carbohydrates and fats as well as other nutrients that help to limit the production of metabolic toxins in order to reduce the workload and improve efficiency of the liver.
The liver is the central and largest metabolic organ of the body and is essential for eliminating toxins. It is therefore exposed to damage and reduced function from infections, ingested poisons and altered blood flow and can result in vomiting, discomfort, bad health condition and even nervous signs including seizures. Different factors can influence the likelihood of a dog developing liver disease, such as their age (inherited and developmental disorders usually produce signs at an early age, whereas liver tumours are common in pets over 10 years of age) and breed (Bedlington Terrier and Yorkshire Terrior).
Factors that influence the likelihood of a dog developing liver disease include the age of your pet (inherited and developmental disorders usually produce signs at an early age, whereas liver tumours are common in pets over 10 years old).
