My dog hates this stuff. She sometimes goes days without eating it. She went from 11 lbs to 9 lbs since she started this stuff. She was on c/d most of her 15 years due to bladder stones. She was never crazy about the c/d but she ate it. I feel like we're killing her with this stuff. I will be talking to the vet to see if we can come up with an alternative. She's old and has issues and we're not looking to keep her going at all costs but we also don't want to starve her to death.

It's a great food and we have been using it for years. I am rating it 3 only because of the supply issues.... My dog (12+ years poodle) needs it daily basis. His teeth are not that good anymore and needs some softer food now. But I cannot get it anywhere (tried online, tried our local stores, the vet, etc.). WHAT'S GOING ON?????

My sheltie was diagnosed with liver shunt disease at 1 yr old. Prognosis was not good, however, now her her on wet LD food and daily meds and she's back to normal. Never thought I'd see the day she's alive and well!

I must say, I'm impressed! My dog has been diagnosed with a light damage on his liver and been advised that I need to have my dog on soft diet or liver diet. He's a very picky eater and I know for sure introducing him to new food is a no-no. But we dont have a choice, he's been on a recovery food for 2 days and got sick of it and that's the time we tried this. Looking at the back of the can shows that it has 100% satisfaction guaranteed or my money back made me laugh and excited at the same time cause I know how hard it is for my dog to like a new food. So there it goes, he liked it so much and even whines if he didn't get enough of it. I wanted to thank you for it cause my dog has finally liked something that made it easier for me to feed him. Price is too much though but it's worth it!

My 5yr old snorkie and 13 yr old beagle was poisoned with tylenol by a evil person last summer. My little snorkie died horrible. My Lilly (beagle) was at deaths door and doc did not know if she would make it. Lots of meds and this canned food, test and test . From Aug to Nov her liver count was so bad, it was off the chart to measure it. This is the only food she can have and she learned to eat it with dry kibble for a treat. She got great liver markers in Feb and she is more playful than i have ever seen her. Whole new happy dog. I am thankful for this food. Her next lab is in July. She is so much like a young pup again.

At first my Labrador enjoyed the change in dog food. Then she became turned off by it and wouldn't eat. If we gave her the old food she would gobble it up. I would love for Hills to introduce a new flavor of this variety.

Vet recommended because my dog has gall bladder issues
by Sotiredofbs on 05/01/2017
We got the L/D dog food recently and are very pleased with the quality. Our dog really loves the food and his health is improving. I was also very impressed with the customer service on the site. George provided all the information and support to give me complete confidence that I was using the product in the optimal way.

My 4 lb. Chihuahua (my baby) has been on this liver diet canned food for 12 years. It's the only food she can have due to her liver problems since birth. My main issue is that some of the cans throughout week (happens throughout every year) are not the same consistency. Some cans when opened are so dry and have hard yellow-ish particles in them-so I dribble a little water on them. Other times it's as thick and GLUEY like glue/paste and sticks in her teeth and mouth. This must be the way it is stored in the trucks that dekiver or at the vet. That;'s the onlyconclusion I can come up with as Iask for the very latest expiration date on every case I buy. Right now she's eating a can that is so dry and crumbles that I'm adding a drip or two of water thereby making it so thick/paste/glue like she won't eat the full portion the vet has her on. This has been a problem for some time. periodically throughout the years.Wish this could be resolved since we are spending a lot of money for this food. ALSO: Would LOVE to have a TINY DRY KIBBLE for extra small dogs. The small kibble in L/D is too large for my little one. So teeth have never been given the benefit of having the dry kibble to eat :(

Our dog went to vet as one VERY SICK critter.. I was sure she would need to be put down... she could not even move. Between meds and food she was up and jumping within 1 week. She seems to enjoy the food and she is still going strong over a year later. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
by Bitzie on 02/03/2016
My Pug cannot wait until it is time to eat. She licks her bowl clean or should I say extra clean! The Hill's L/D is a high quality prescription food at a great price that I can trust and know that will be there to help my dog for as long as she needs it.

Our dog loves the I/d turkey, no so much the original it is so thick very hard to get into to small bites, even by cutting the food up.
by LindseyMarie on 10/10/2015
I'm grateful my dog has a food he can eat with his condition. Thank you.
by AllenT on 09/29/2015
This diet has helped my Abby feel so much better. She was so ill for a while.
by LCP2006 on 09/27/2015
My dog loves his food. He was so happy to start using this new food for hi I'm.
by Lindalou1124 on 09/18/2015
It's crazy how much we've paid in dog food across the years. Not sure why the l/d it cost so much. My guess is because there is not an alternative and my pets liver condition requires it. Hills, would you just be reasonable. You're killing me here.
by Reggie15 on 09/12/2015
my dog gives the ID diet canned wet food a two paws up as well as I. it has been so easy for her to digest that she acts like a puppy again and I love to see her bounce around. she is 6 years old now but acts like she is 1. I really like the fact it is affordable as well and she seems to never get tired of the taste. its nice to see her eat and not stick her nose up anymore. thank you for a great product.
by maybird on 09/10/2015
We have two dogs on the Id canned food and they also get the Id dry food. I only gave them the turkey canned in the beginning and later found the stew, so now they get both and a small amount of the dry , they really enjoy their meals.
by Territotes on 09/05/2015
When we started on the food, recommended by our vet, we didn't have much hope, they told us she was very sick and they doubted she would be able to recover. However, after being on this food for several months she is like a new puppy again - she turned 13 on Christmas Day. Highly recommend this food for a dog with liver problems.
by ginabeana156 on 01/04/2015
Since our dog has been on this food she has been so much healthier. She needed to have a low protein diet and this food is perfect. She also eats the dry version of this food as instructed by our Vet. She eats the food right down and it has really helped her condition.She can be picky at times but will eventually decide to eat. The price is high, but what choice do we have? She is a member of our family and we will do whatever we have to do for her.

Our little rescue has been diagnosed with liver issues and we are hoping by medically supporting her liver we will resolve her seizures. We have had an easy time transitioning her to this food in both the wet and dry formula and are hopeful to see her liver enzyme numbers drop into the normal range in three months.

My 9 year old Maltese was dying. The vet did a lot of blood work and discovered he had too much protein in his urine. Our little fellow was drawn up, listless and looked so sad. This all happened within a few days to less than a week. He was going downhill fast. Our vet said we needed to get him on a prescription diet at once. Within a few days our little guy was running and playing like a young puppy. Thank you so much Hills Prescription for saving our precious little guy. Larry and Connie

I love the product, but it is a bit costly. We try to get coupons off the internet, but sometimes they will not let you access them or I can't get them to download.
by Jean50 on 09/11/2014
Pomeranian was diagnosed with liver problems one year ago. Was prescribed this diet and has done excellent since we began feeding him with this. He loves the taste and always craves for more.
by MichaelB on 08/04/2014
My dog has been on l/d over 2 years and her "episodes" have diminished. The product is consistently reliable.

Vet prescribed l/d prescription diet for our Dalmatian mix. She loves it and it seems to be helping her condition. We feared she wouldn't eat it since she is a picky eater with a delicate digestive system, but she took to it right away with no problems. I just wish there was a less expensive option.
by asmith on 07/17/2014
Wish dry came in larger bags and the wet in the smaller sizes since I mix together

Since feeding K.C.(my king charles Caviler) this dog food along with her medication her liver problem has improved and is doing much better.
by lulu1 on 05/28/2014
After finding out our dog has high liver enzymes, the vet recommended this food. It is bringing the levels down and Scout seems to be feeling better. He also likes the food.
by Gail12 on 05/05/2014
you got a high paw from my dog he loved the taste and smell.
by iheartmax on 03/24/2014
This product really keep up their name. My yorkie is a very picky eater and she really likes it when I warm them up just a tiny bit..I do recommend this product and she has lost one pound within two weeks and she got her energy back.
by perry57 on 03/13/2014
My dog was dying from to much protein and ammonia so the Vet recommended this dog food. There are a couple of issues. We are an older couple and the dog food it rather expensive for us. It does stink but dogs loves smelly things. Having to use wet food his teeth are not as white as with dry food. The major problem is the last case was nothing like the first two. I am guessing it froze sometime on it's way to the Vet's. It crumbles and you can't pack it. Seems dry. Tried adding a bit of broth or water but no luck. Please bring the price down for us older folks.
by ConnieVa on 03/02/2014
I would recommend this to anyone that has a pet with liver conditions.
by SteveH on 01/25/2014
Our 9 year chi has been put on this by his vet due to his liver enzymes being off. Hoping this will do the trick!. He has no problem eating this food, and a can seems to last at least a couple days.

We have a tiny Yorkshire Terrier puppy who was given to us in poor shape at about 4months old, and he'd barely gained any weight since the original owner had acquired him at 9weeks. The pup had hypoglycemia issues and probable liver shunt and was not eating well, even using Nutrical supplement. After being put on l/d canned food by the vet, in 3 weeks his weight increased from 2.0 to 3.1 pounds! He is full of energy and looks terrific, no longer the fragile-appearing little boy he was. Thanks for making such a terrific product! The l/d will continue to be his only diet, probably for his lifetime, if it is verified that he has a liver shunt.
by Barkley1 on 01/07/2014
Had to try this food. My dog seems to be feeling better since eating this food. Its a little sticky so you need to have water close by but that is what the product says. My dog never ate canned food before and she seems to really like this one. Food pricey but my girl's health is worth it.
by shelbyoz on 12/03/2013
We were happy that they improved the canned food to include more moisture. It's great that our schnauzer likes something that she has to eat.
by Sadie on 11/27/2013
At first is was hard to get our dog to eat the wet food so we also bought the dry food and we mixed it. It has been one year and her liver test have came back great I would recommend this food. The only draw back is it is a little expensive.
by laser on 11/18/2013
Toto, my pet who is a mix of Schnauzer/Terrier, has had a high liver reading and was put on prescription food by his vet. After a sonagram revealed a mass on one of his liver lobes, he had surgery to remove that section of his liver. The surgery was successful. He had been on dry prescription food but we switched him to wet after his surgery. He loves the food. His latest tests show no sign of tumors or mass development. Toto is ten years old and I hope he lives another ten. He is a happy fellow and still active.
by Patz on 09/27/2013
my dog needs the special food and she is very picky! But she loves this stuff! I mix it with her dry food and she Is very happy. I am hoping to get good results w her blood work in a few months. Love the coupons too!!
by mabe on 09/14/2013
My 3 yr old walked into my life about a year ago and he was the prefect fit to me and my Pomo, we had done his yearly vet exam and his liver # was 175. my Vet said critical and we need to do something since his # went from 105 to 175 in a year. She said 20-100 is what it should be. At first, we thought surgery then my wonderful vet decided to treat with diet and we used this product. in 7 weeks my babies # is 81 which falls into normal . THANK YOU for this product.. Everyone, if your dog has a liver issue, try this product. I cant' tell you what a blessing it was due to this food..
by kyjake on 08/20/2013
In 2012 when our toy poodle was due to have her 6 mo dental cleaning the vet performed the pre-cleaning blood tests. Much to our surprise her liver emzyme readings were too high. He immediately recommended that we include Hills Veterinary l/d in her daily feedings. We did so immediately. A year later we had her re-tested before her dental and the readings were much closer to the acceptable range. The only change we had made was including l/d in her feedings. Good going Hill's!
