Royal Canin Hepatic - Prescription Veterinarian Diet

This diet is supplied by PETstock Vet,'s vet partner, before you purchase this food you must have had it prescribed by your pets vet. If this is not the case please contact our help desk or your local vet. 

Hepatic is a nutritionally balanced diet formulated to support liver function in dogs with chronic liver conditions.

Key Benefits:

  • Vegetable protein is easily digested and absorbed by dogs with liver conditions.
  • A low level of copper and increased zinc content helps reduce the accumulation of copper in liver cells.
  • The patented antioxidant complex helps fight free radicals, maintain healthy DNA, promotes a healthy immune system and helps protect the remaining liver cells. 
  • High energy provided by increased dietary fat helps maintain bodyweight and permits smaller meal volumes to be fed. 

Made Specifically For: Adult dogs with chronic liver conditions

My dog has been diagnosed with IBD and gallbladder problems and so the vet recommended that we use this food as part of an exclusion diet. She doesn't like it very much and I've had to add fresh food on top to try to entice her to eat it. It's also very expensive, and only available in the 1.5 kg bag (for a large dog, this doesn't last long - especially when most of it goes into the rubbish)

Bottom Line

No, I wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
