l/d® Canine Hepatic Health


Liver Health
The liver is your dog's largest internal organ with many functions, including the digestion and conversion of nutrients, the removal of toxic substances from the blood and the storage of vitamins and minerals. The liver has an amazing ability to repair and regenerate itself, and nutrition plays a vital role in this process.
At Hill's, nutritionists and veterinarians have developed clinical nutrition especially formulated to help support your dog's liver function during its healing process.

Feeding Guide

Daily Feeding Guide:

Important Feeding Information

  • These amounts are a starting point only. Your dog may need less or more food to maintain proper weight. Adjust as needed. If you are unsure, or if you are feeding Prescription Diet® l/d® Canine Hepatic Health to a puppy, ask your veterinarian.
  • With your veterinarian's approval, mix increasing amounts of your dog's new food with decreasing amounts of the old food over a 7-day period.
  • Prescription Diet® formulas are available in a wide variety of dry foods and treats for your dog's unique needs, and canned foods with delicious flavors your dog will love. Supplementation with other foods or treats is unnecessary and may decrease the effectiveness of the food. When using with canned food and treats, decrease the amount of dry food to avoid overfeeding.
  • Keep fresh water available at all times!

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. June 29, 2013
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!

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. September 26, 2013
Fighting his battle My Scottish terrier mix was posioned over a year ago and has experienced liver problems since that time. He has been on the Hills prescription diet since then and loves the food!! He recently has been taken off his liver medication for a trial run but is still on his special food diet. He will be going this weekend for his liver profile check up and fingers crossed the results will be good. Even though this has been a tough time and I still can't understand why someone would hurt an innocent animal it's nice to know there is quality product that has helped assist in his healing process.

This food is keeping our best friend alive! Our 11 year old Labrador has Chronic Active Hepatitis-this food helps lower her ALT liver enzymes. February 11, 2014
Liver issue 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. January 28, 2014
Working great for my dog's liver condition This food works great for my dog's liver condition and she gobbles it down. So she must like it. My only suggestion would be to have it available in a smaller size bag, too. The large bag is heavy and a little hard to handle. I love this food because it does make a difference. October 11, 2014
the product is working my only complaint is that i would like to buy the l/d dry but it only comes in hugh bags when you have a tiny yorkie who would nt eat that bag before it expired and to lay out 60 is crazy even tho you refund expired bags please make smaller bags June 30, 2014
