Royal Canin Hepatic is a complete dietetic feed for the nutritional management of dogs to help support liver function in the case of chronic liver insufficiency and reducing the levels of copper in the liver.
It is recommended that you seek a veterinarian’s opinion before use or before extending the period of use. Initially feed HEPATIC for up to 6 months.
Royal Canin Canine Hepatic wet and dry: Notes from our vet
We all want to make sure our pets are as happy and healthy as they can be. When they suffer from chronic health conditions such as liver disease it is difficult to know how to look after them. But often simple things like changing their diet can make a big difference.
If your vet has diagnosed your dog with liver disease you may notice that they are losing weight, may be drinking or urinating more than usual and often experience sickness or diarrhoea.
A healthy liver plays an important part in making sure your pet’s digestion works will. It stores vital vitamins and minerals and takes toxic substances out of their bodies. If your dog has a damaged liver then feeding them a special diet that reduces the work their liver has to do can help.
Royal Canin Canine Hepatic contains vegetable proteins that are easy for the liver to process. It also has high levels of antioxidants to tackle any damage to your pet’s body caused by their liver problems.
It’s high in energy too to give your dog the boost they need without feeding them large amounts of food that their liver would find it hard to cope with.
Some dogs, especially Bedlington Terriers, are prone to having too much copper in their livers, causing damage. So Royal Canin Canine Hepatic has low levels of copper to combat this.
The feed comes in both wet and dry forms so you can choose which your dog prefers. You should always get advice from your vet before changing your dog’s diet, but feeding the right nutrients can really help your pet begin to feel better.
