What are the signs of liver disease?
The liver performs many important functions, including digestion of fat and other nutrients; production of hormones, protein and glucose; clearing the blood of waste products and toxins; producing immune factors; and storing useful nutrients such as vitamins and energy.
Signs of liver disease are often vague and may include loss of appetite, weight loss, vomiting and diarrhoea,abdominal pain and sometimes jaundice. In some cases toxin build-up in the blood affects the brain, leadiing to disorientation and seizures, a condition called "hepatic encephalopathy".
The liver has a great capacity to repair itself so a specially adapted diet can be very helpful in minimising clinical signs and supporting the liver while it heals.
PURINA® PRO PLAN® VETERINARY DIETS Canine HP Hepatic is a complete veterinary diet for support of liver function in dogs of all ages, including puppies over 14 weeks.
It contains the optimum type and level of protein to help prevent malnutrition and reduce the risk of hepatic encephalopathy.
This diet is highly palatable and high in energy to help prevent weight loss, and highly digestible to help reduce the liver's workload.
It is high in essential fatty acids and antioxidants to support the liver, and has restricted copper levels to help reduce copper build-up in the liver.
Key Benefits of PURINA® PRO PLAN® VETERINARY DIETS Canine HP Hepatic:
selected protein sources to help reduce the build-up of toxins and maintain liver function

Note that some types of liver disease may require a low protein diet such as PURINA® PRO PLAN® VETERINARY DIETS Canine NF Renal Function. If your dog has liver disease, please check with your veterinary surgeon which PURINA® PRO PLAN® VETERINARY DIETS is appropriate.
