For dogs, the liver has many responsibilities in multiple body systems. It produces bile for effective digestion, produces proteins for blood clotting, it detoxifies the blood, stores vitamins and metabolises sources of energy. Optimal liver function is imperative for the overall health of a dog.
The main protein source of our liver support recipe is white fish. White fish, such as Haddock and Pollock, has moderately restricted protein and innately low levels of copper which are both important when being mindful of liver health. It is also rich in essential fatty acids and easily digestible protein and amino acids. Supplementary superfoods such as dandelion, basil, and pumpkin seeds contain essential nutrients such as vitamins K, C and E as well as prebiotics, which are all important for maintaining optimal liver health. Our liver support recipe also contains enhanced levels of zinc for discouraging absorption if divalent cations, high L-Carnitine and L-Arginine levels and restricted yet appropriate phosphorous levels to support muscle maintenance and healthy liver function.
Some breeds of dog are more susceptible to developing liver conditions such as liver disease, however genetics and age can also be a contributing factor. Nutriment's liver support recipe is an ideal way to nutritionally support your dog for optimal liver function and overall health.
