A friend of mine has a 10 year old Golden Retriever. Recently it had a seizure and was taken to the Vet. It was determined that he has High Liver Function and the vet recommended supplements and a prescription dog food…Hills Science Diet Prescription LD Hipatic Health. First few ingredients are Brewers Rice, Pork Fat, Dried Egg, Soy Bean Meal. She has to pay $60 for a 17lb bag. The vet said he realizes it is expensive and said if she could not afford it, he highly recommended feeding the food over the supplements. Now we all know this is a horrible food. From her own research (not the vet) she said with High Liver Function problems, low protein is advised. Does anyone have an idea about what food she could try. Her dog was previously on Nutro Max, but seemed to be having allergy problems so she switched him about 6 months ago to Nutrisca to avoid potato. She said he seemed to be doing really well on it until this happened.
