Low Protein Content
PRO-VET.® Hepatic complete and balanced specialized dry diet for dogs of all breeds and ages to support the liver function in chronic liver insufficiency; also suitable for reducing cystine and urate stone formation.
Liver failure (hepatic failure) is a serious deterioration of liver functions. This can occur suddenly (acute liver failure) or develop over a long period of time (chronic liver failure). The basis for the development of acute liver failure is a violation of the compensating capacities and functions of the liver. The cause of this can be hereditary, such as a hereditary copper accumulation in the liver, but can also be caused by a viral infection.
Timely diagnosis of acute liver failure can be cured with proper treatment. With chronic liver failure, only the current state of the liver can be supported to prevent or delay further deterioration of liver functions, but the disease cannot be cured.
PRO-VET.® Hepatic is a diet low in protein, copper and natrium for patients with liver failure undergoing a treatment or in convalescent periods, and can also be taken as a preventive diet to protect a healthy liver function.
PRO-VET.® Hepatic is due to its low content in protein and purine and its adjusted pH-level, also ideally suited for dogs suffering from cystine and urate stones.
|Low Protein Content||Decreases the formation of ammonium in the liver and helps to reduce the risk of hepatic encephalopathy. Has a positive influence on the reduction of the development of cystine- and urate stone formation.|
|High Content of Fermentable Fibers.||Stimulates in the colon the attachment of bacterial protein to nitrogen, reducing herewith the formation of ammonia and supporting thereby the liver function.|
Adjusted Urine pH 6.7, Low Content of Purine.
||Works preventive against the formation of urate- and cystine stones, decreases the development of acidosis.|
|Low Copper (Cu) Content.||Decreases the copper accumulation in cells and supports thereby the liver function.|
|Added L-Carnitine||Stimulates the use of lipids by the liver and ensures a high energy requirement for this organ. PRO-VET Hepatic contains L-Carnitine of 300 mg/kg|
|Low Sodium (Na) Content.||Contributes to the control of portal hypertension and ascites.|
|High content of essential fatty acids.||Helps to reduce inflammatory reactions.|
|Rich in Natural Antioxidants.||
Decreases the formation of free radicals. Helps to prevent the age-related decline of tissue structures.
