Complete dietary food for dogs with insufficient liver function
Hepatic is a complete dietary food that can be used for specific liver problems. Given the important role of the liver in the processing of fat and the regulation of lipid metabolism, it is important to provide substances that support the metabolism of the liver. Hepatic is enriched with these so-called lipotropic agents (e.g. L-carnitine, lecithin and choline).
Some dog breeds are known to carry a genetic abnormality, which allows copper to accumulate in the liver. When a large amount of copper enters the body via the diet, this may result in serious damage to the liver tissue. Hepatic for dogs has a reduced copper level, to prevent the accumulation hereof.
Copper accumulation disease
Supports fat-metabolism by high levels of lipotropic substances (i.e. lecithin, choline).
It is recommended that a veterinarian's opinion be sought before use or before extending the period of use. The recommended period of use in case of (chronic) liver insufficiency or copper accumulation in the liver is initially up to 6 months. Hepatic is a complete dietary food that, after prescription by a veterinarian, can safely be fed for life.
