Hill's Prescription Diet Canine h/d
Hill's Prescription Diet Canine h/d is a dietetic dog food specially formulated to help manage the symptoms of heart disease of adult dogs.
This dry formula contains selected nutrients to maintain normal heart muscle function and help reduce related fluid retention which can cause high blood pressure. Heart disease is a condition frequently found in ageing dogs. The most commonly seen heart diseases are due to a less efficiently working heart valve or heart muscle. This will lead to fluid retention and discomfort for your dog. Fluid retention is in response to a less efficient heart function and can be made more problematic with foods that are high in sodium. Hill's Prescription Diet Canine h/d recipe has reduced level of sodium to reduce the discomfort of liquid retention. Other ingredients such as L-carnitine and taurine (particularly for the cat) are important for good functioning of the heart muscle. Cardiac function can benefit from high level of antioxidants which help neutralise free radicals.
