Hill's® Prescription Diet® l/d® Canine Hepatic Health
This product is truly a life savior
Last February my german shepherd start having issues with bloody and painful stools. This issue led into summer and only got worse. It came to the point after trying almost everything, to consider "putting him down", and he is only 3 years old. We decided to try an internal medicine doctor as a last resort. He recommended a prescription medicine and "Prescription Science Diet" . Within 2 weeks we seen results. Kyzer made a huge recovery, and we truly feel Science Diet had a major role in this:)

Your dog food has help our dogs so much and improved their health
My dog has been with our family since he was 6 weeks old. He is almost 12 years old and his liver count was up to over 670. We thought we was going to lose him but our vet put him on I/D Canine Hepatic Health Dry and some other meds. Within 2 months his liver fell down to in the 350 range. Which is still high but alot better then before. Cocoa has began to get back some of his playful and acting like his old self. Cocoa really likes the dog food also so we do not have to force him to eat it. I feel like this dog food has help our dog so much . We also have Bunny Blue (dog) which is 6 years old and has gastrointestinal problems . She has been on I/D Canine Gastrointestinal Health for about 6 months now . Since she has started eating I/D Canine Gastrointestinal Health she has not had a problem . Before she was sick all the time. Thank you you so much for making our pets lives a much heatlhly and happy life.

Love this product
My 11 1/2 yr old lab has been on Hill's Prescription Diet l/d dry and wet for 2 1/2 yrs after being diagnosed with liver issues. Before the l/d we have used other Hill's Prescription Diet foods with great success. We believe that between the l/d food and her meds she is still with us today, living a healthy and happy life!

Good Food for My Dog
My dog actually eats both the wet and dry form of the LD food. I think the quality is great but the price is high. I wish you all offered more coupons for those of us having to buy the more expensive prescription formulas. However, I am grateful to have such a good product to offer my dog. She really likes the wet version better than the dry. Perhaps you could add something that would make it more palatable for her.

My dogs like the taste and their ailment seems to be in check. My only complaint is that it is too expensive.

Great product for dogs with liver issues.
I was worried over my dog's health condition. She is suffering with liver problems. My vet told me to put her on Hill's Prescription Diet l/d dry food. We tried it and along with medication she has made a great recovery. She is back to herself and continues to enjoy a good quality of life.

My dog is feeling a LOT better after switching to this food!
She likes the taste of both the dry and canned and eats them just fine. I was a little worried about that because my other dog did not like. But he only tried it the first couple days after his gallbladder surgery and did not have his appetite back. He would be happy to eat it out of her bowl now if I let him!
My only issue is the price. Most likely, my girl dog will be on the food the rest of her life because of her liver problems. She is a 55 lbs dog and the 17.5 lbs page does not go very far. I'm used to buying dog food in 40 lbs bags and was shocked by the price of such a little bag of dog food. But, it makes her feel good and I love her, so I buy it.
I bought the canned just to have some wet food on hand and to try to make dog biscuits out of it. The dog biscuits flopped for me. The food is so "dry" for a canned food that I could not get it stay together. But she is happy to eat the canned as is, so it was not a total loss. It would be nice if you made l/d dog treats.
To sum things up, we were ready to put our 12.5 year old dog to sleep because eating was making her so sick. Your food has greatly increased her quality of life and life expectancy.
Thanks for listening.

Our dog doesn't like it.
Our dog has never been picky about his food...ever. Unfortunately he doesn't care for this food and only eats it when he realizes we are not giving him anything else. We are hoping he will get used to it because it seems as though it is actually lowering his liver enzyme levels. The food is pricy but if it helps, and he'll eat it, we will continue to buy it.

Hepatic Health has improved!
My change in Dog Food from Store Bought to Prescription though more expensive has helped my West Highland Terrier improve liver function and he just seems more peppy! There also has been less and smaller stool in the yard as there is less grain in the ingredient's and more nutrients. Glad I switched!

This product kept my dog going for 8 yrs
L/D dry made it possible for Odie to stay in my life for 9 years- he ate it for over 8 yrs- he had a liver shunt- Being a LVT with multiole animals cookig for him would have been impossible.Even thoug it was expensive- it wasless expensive than the only other commericial prescription diet and he likes it better.
I wish that the bag sizes hadn't changed for feeding a 60# dog- 17.6 # only lasts 20.5 days. ANd they never wualitfied for any of the special sales of buying large bags-

My dog's liver levels have come down since eating this prescription food.
My dog likes the food. We did not have any problem introducing the LD diet. My only complaint is the price of the food.

Without this diet my sweet Callie would not live very long, it is truly a life saving formula.

This product is a life-saver
My mini-schnauzer suffered from a pancreatitis attack. We did not think she was going to live...it was THAT bad. Luckily she pulled through but she requires a diet now, that is strickly low fat. This is the best product for that. She has now gained weight and is happy :) Thanks you Hills.

Life & Lifestyle saver!
Snapper is a Labrador Retriever born with a massive hepatic A/V fistula. She should have been stillborn or a fading puppy. Few of these dogs even live long enough to get diagnosed. After surgery at 4 months, she was left with no portal system and multiple acquired shunts. She had a 40% chance of living to her 1st birthday. She has been on the Hills l/d dry and medical management since she was 9 weeks old. She will turn 6 this April. not only is she still alive, but she is a Therapy Dog, has earned 3 AKC Rally Titles, and is competing in AKC Agility at the Masters level! I won't say she's terribly competitive against 100% healthy dogs, but the fact that she's gotten so far is pretty amazing. Don't let a diagnosis of liver disease let your dog become a couch potato!

Good and healthy for my dog.
Since I will have to keep my dog on this diet for the rest of his life and he is a large dog this gets expensive!

Food has saved my dog's life!
My dog, Monty, diagnosed with liver problems and was placed on L/D. He is doing awesome! The kibble is a good size and Monty eats all of it. He has more energy and is back to begging and doing his tricks. Thank you!!!

My Dog was 1 year and 10 months when she developed some type of liver issue, I took her to the vet everyday for IV fluids and monitoring for almost two weeks before her fever broke. The vet put her on the L/D food and she started to slowly improve. after 6 weeks she was back to her old self and slowly moved to normal foods. Thanks Hills for having a product that saved my baby girls life.

Thank goodness for something Harlee can eat safely!
Our Yorkie has a liver shunt and can't have much protein, so I'm grateful this food is available for her to have nutrition that her little body can handle! They said she would not likely live past 18 months but she is almost four years old now ... My only complaint is that she doesn't like the taste of it and has to act like she's starving before she eats it.
The wet food she likes and eats fine, but it is a bit more expensive.

This product keeps my dog alive
The LD keeps my dog alive as her liver does not function and without it she would not be healthy. L

Puppy loves this food.
My puppy was diagnosed with a Portosystemic Liver Shunt. Did not think he would eat this food over what he had been eating. But he loves it, that makes it a lot easier on me, seeing that is all he can eat.

Only 6 months to live....NOT!
My miniature schnauzer, Zoe, was born with a poor functioning liver. The vet told us that we would be lucky if she lived more than six months. We decided to change her diet as he suggested (rather than go with an expensive operation that only had a 50% chance of working) and we chose to give her Hill's l/d product. Well our little Zoe is now 4 1/2 years old! We use the wet and dry versions of this product. Sometimes she's not thrilled about the taste, but it certainly has provided her with a happy and healthy life. I am glad that Hill's helped us prove the doc wrong.

this product has helped my pet
This product was prescribed by my vet and has helped my dog with his condition so with a well balance diet and medication he is doing great. For this I am so happy. My only thing is because he will be on this for the rest of his life I do wish the cost was a bit less or coupons would be available continuously to help with the cost. I am buying this every 2 months and he is only 3 yrs. old. Thank you for your time.

Hills Prescription Diet L/D has been prescribed for my dog, Molly and she is doing an amazing progress!
My dog, Molly was prescribed this product due to high bile level count but she is amazingly improving after switching to this product. My only problem with this product is that the dry version only comes in a large bag, which it would take more than a year for my 7 lbs chihuahua to finish the entire bag. She is a really picky eater that she eats a mixture of dry and wet food. So buying both canned and a huge bag of dry prescription food is not too affordable when the dry version only comes in large bags.
