Product details

Royal Canin Canine Hepatic is designed to provide complete nutrition for your dog, while supporting liver function.

How it works

The food contains a number of ingredients chosen specifically to help your dog stay healthy and happy while living with a hepatic liver condition.

The mix is fortified with vegetable protein which is full of nutrition and can help your dog's digestive system. Copper levels are kept as low as possible, which can help to prevent copper storage disease. This disease can lead to cirrhosis of the liver, as well as making things worse if your dog is already diagnosed with a hepatic condition.

The blend of vitamins C, E, B, B1 and B6, along with antioxidants, supports your dog’s natural defences. Antioxidants are important in your dog’s diet because they combat the formation of free radicals. These aggressive molecules attack other healthy cells, which can lead to the formation of potentially life-threatening illnesses over time.

Key benefits

  • low in copper, keeping build-up in the liver to a minimum
  • vegetable protein makes it easy for your dog to digest
  • high in antioxidants, which help prevent free radicals
  • high energy content which won’t strain your dog’s digestion
  • vitamin content supports the immune system.

When to use it

If your dog suffers from chronic inflammation of the liver, also called active hepatitis, it can be difficult for them to retain protein. Due to the fact that it can reduce liver function by up to 70%, it is crucial that your dog is able to easily digest a food that is also high in energy. Some breeds are more at risk of liver problems than others, including male Cocker Spaniels and Bedlington Terriers. Female dogs tend to be more at risk from copper storage disease, where the liver is vulnerable to excessive, abnormal copper build-up.

Always seek advice from your vet if your dog has symptoms including weight loss, a lack of appetite, seizures, or vomiting. These could indicate liver problems.

Because veterinary diets are formulated for the nutritional support of pets with specific clinical conditions, we recommend that you only use them under professional advice. For more information on feeding Royal Canin Canine Hepatic to your dog, please consult your veterinary surgeon.

  • Hepatic Dry Food
    My Jack Russell dog has liver problems and has taken the change in diet very well. Also available is the wet version of this product, both very good. Well priced and excellent delivery service. I would recommend this company as a trusted and reliable resource for your pets. Excellent range of products available.

  • Hepatic wet food
    My old dog is on this for high ALT reading on his blood tests plus slightly enlarged liver on ultrasound last time. Although it doesn't look appealing he will eat it . Cheaper on this site than buying from the vet plus I don't have to carry it home.
