Your Detailed Guide To Hill's Prescription Diet l/d Liver Care Dry Dog Food

What Is Hill's Prescription Diet l/d Liver Care Dry Dog Food?

Hill's Prescription Diet range is a veterinary diet range of dry dog food that is formulated to meet veterinary medical requirements. The range is available in different variants and is used as a dietary treatment for a wide variety of illnesses. Hill's Prescription Diet l/d Liver Care Dry Dog Food is used to support the liver in cases of diseases that affect the liver.

Hill's Prescription Diet l/d Liver Care dog food is made to help your dog's liver function and protect vital liver functions. This food is formulated with very high-quality ingredients and has moderate amounts of protein, so the liver isn't overworked. Protein is an essential nutritional requirement in dogs.

However, processing protein puts pressure on the liver. Thus, dog food with moderate amounts of protein is best for dogs who have liver issues. This dietalso has high levels of L-carnitine and L-arginine. L-carnitine is derived from amino acids and is synthesized in your dog's liver and kidneys. It is essential for heart and muscle function.

If your dog's liver is not functioning at 100%, your dog will need to supplement L-carnitine in his diet to maintain healthy body function. L-carnitine also helps with fat metabolism. Dogs with liver disease often suffer from a buildup of ammonia in their body. L-arginine helps to reduce these levels of ammonia and maintain healthy body chemistry.

Does My Dog Have Liver Disease?

Liver disease is a silent illness. It's difficult to spot the symptoms because they can be linked to multiple other problems. You might see your dog vomiting more than usual, losing weight and appetite suddenly, and drink a lot more water. They might appear confused and have an unsteady walk and urinate more often than they do.

They might even urinate inside the house because they cannot hold their bladder. You might notice blood in their urine or in their feces. Weakness is another common symptom, along with jaundiced gums, eyes, and tongue. If you notice any of these symptoms in your dog, you should contact your vet as soon as possible.

Untreated liver disease can lead to hepatic encephalopathy. This is when toxins build up in the brain. This buildup can affect behavior in many ways. One of the most telling signs is that your dog will keep pressing his head against the wall. He might also circle around the room, pace across his territory, or even run into walls.

If you see any of these symptoms in your dog, you should contact your vet. Give them a thorough walkthrough of the symptoms along with your concern that it might be liver disease. No one but a licensed vet should confirm or treat liver disease in your dog.
