Liver Care

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.

Hill's nutritionists and veterinarians developed Prescription Diet® l/d®, clinical nutrition especially formulated to support your dog's liver health. In fact, l/d is formulated to help protect vital liver function

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog's health has been restored. I only know that my dog, a six pound Yorkie was so sick with inflammation of the lining of the small intestine.after ultra sound and diagnosis the treatment was to change food to Hill's Low fat diet, and the use of steroids for a time. I saw an immediate change with the use of the food. He was so skinny after the steroid treatment. It took a month on the food and he is completely cured. Just wish it was a little less expensive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. May 10, 2014
