    Hill's® Prescription Diet® l/d Liver Care Dog Food - Pork is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 48.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only 6 months to live....NOT! My miniature schnauzer, Zoe, was born with a poor functioning liver. The vet told us that we would be lucky if she lived more than six months. We decided to change her diet as he suggested (rather than go with an expensive operation that only had a 50% chance of working) and we chose to give her Hill's l/d product. Well our little Zoe is now 4 1/2 years old! We use the wet and dry versions of this product. Sometimes she's not thrilled about the taste, but it certainly has provided her with a happy and healthy life. I am glad that Hill's helped us prove the doc wrong.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My dog's liver levels have come down since eating this My dog likes the food. We did not have any problem introducing the LD diet. My only complaint is the price of the food.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hills Prescription Diet L/D has been prescribed for my dog, My dog, Molly was prescribed this product due to high bile level count but she is amazingly improving after switching to this product. My only problem with this product is that the dry version only comes in a large bag, which it would take more than a year for my 7 lbs chihuahua to finish the entire bag. She is a really picky eater that she eats a mixture of dry and wet food. So buying both canned and a huge bag of dry prescription food is not too affordable when the dry version only comes in large bags.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hills Liver Care Prescription l/d The product is of high quality, but is only available in larger sized bites. My dog is small, has a hard time eating the bigger bites. Have been unable to find the Liver Care product in small dog sized kibble.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog is feeling a LOT better after switching to this food! She likes the taste of both the dry and canned and eats them just fine. I was a little worried about that because my other dog did not like. But he only tried it the first couple days after his gallbladder surgery and did not have his appetite back. He would be happy to eat it out of her bowl now if I let him! My only issue is the price. Most likely, my girl dog will be on the food the rest of her life because of her liver problems. She is a 55 lbs dog and the 17.5 lbs page does not go very far. I'm used to buying dog food in 40 lbs bags and was shocked by the price of such a little bag of dog food. But, it makes her feel good and I love her, so I buy it. I bought the canned just to have some wet food on hand and to try to make dog biscuits out of it. The dog biscuits flopped for me. The food is so "dry" for a canned food that I could not get it stay together. But she is happy to eat the canned as is, so it was not a total loss. It would be nice if you made l/d dog treats. To sum things up, we were ready to put our 12.5 year old dog to sleep because eating was making her so sick. Your food has greatly increased her quality of life and life expectancy. Thanks for listening.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working great for my dog's liver condition This food works great for my dog's liver condition and she gobbles it down. So she must like it. My only suggestion would be to have it available in a smaller size bag, too. The large bag is heavy and a little hard to handle. I love this food because it does make a difference.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product kept my dog going for 8 yrs L/D dry made it possible for Odie to stay in my life for 9 years- he ate it for over 8 yrs- he had a liver shunt- Being a LVT with multiole animals cookig for him would have been impossible.Even thoug it was expensive- it wasless expensive than the only other commericial prescription diet and he likes it better. I wish that the bag sizes hadn't changed for feeding a 60# dog- 17.6 # only lasts 20.5 days. ANd they never wualitfied for any of the special sales of buying large bags-
