Manufacturer's product description

" Royal Canin Veterinary Diet – Hepatic HF 16 provides nutritional support specifically for dogs suffering from liver disease and insufficiency.

Liver disease can lead to metabolism problems and the way the body stores and breaks down nutrients and toxins. Royal Canin Hepatic HF 16 helps to minimize liver dysfunction and correct pH levels in the intestines.

It is important to ensure that

Your pet has the correct diet (high energy content, optimal intake of proteins, minerals and vitamins)

Liver cell production is regulated (L-carnitin, highly digestible protein)

Liver dysfunction is minimised (optimal, easy to digest vegetable protein content, correct pH levels in the intestines, low sodium). "
