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

How it works:

  • Moderate levels of high quality protein
  • High L-carnitine & L-arginine levels
  • Appropriate level of zinc
  • Low copper
  • Clinically proven antioxidants

How it helps:

  • Helps reduce liver workload allowing liver tissue to regenerate
  • Helps maintain normal fat metabolism in the liver
  • Helps avoid nutrient deficiencies commonly related to liver issues
  • Supports a healthy immune system

Additional info:

Hill's® Prescription Diet® l/d® Canine is a complete and balanced food that provides all the nutrition your dog needs. Please consult your veterinarian for further information on how our Prescription Diet® foods can help your dog to continue to enjoy a happy and active life.
