Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from Title We had used the l/d formulas for our first dog, an Old English Sheepdog who developed a liver tumor. I am convinced it extended his health and let him live another 1 1/2 years with us before we lost him. Thank you for developing this formula to help him. We have another OES and would not hesitate to use any of these products for him. We have and still use the dental formula dog food as training treats for our dogs. It's something that they love and is good for them, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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-

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
