Supports the liver function in dogs
Liver problems are common in dogs and may be genetic or related to age. We speak of a liver problem when a large part of the liver is diseased and the liver can no longer carry out its functions properly. Prins ProCare Croque Veterinary Diet Liver Support is a complete dry dog food specially formulated for dogs with liver disease. This liver diet contains easily digestible ingredients, a low protein content, a high energy content and omega-3 fatty acids. L-carnitine, choline and lecithin have also been added to the diet to support lipid metabolism. A limited copper content helps reduce copper accumulation in the liver. A dog with liver disease must be fed a liver diet for the remainder of its life. Due to the specific properties of this diet, it is also suitable for dogs with urate and cystine stones.

It would be preferable if you could get your dog used to the new diet in one go. If your dog needs more time to get used to the new diet, mix increasing amounts of the new food with the old food over a period of seven days until you have entirely switched to the new diet. Warning: in some cases, transitioning to the new diet can result in a disturbance of the intestinal flora and the stool could look slightly different to how it normally looks. This is nothing serious and in most cases the stool will look normal again within three days.
• Do not food extras in addition to the new diet. Extra snacks are often protein and mineral-rich and could reduce the effect of the liver diet.
• If you also wish to food your dog wet food, then choose only wet food that is especially suitable for dogs with chronic liver disease. Regular wet foods often contain a higher protein content.
• Encourage water intake by soaking the kibbles in water.
• Possibly followed by additional veterinary treatment.
