The liver is the largest internal organ in the body and it carries out a bewildering array of vital metabolic tasks. Many of the functions of the liver are influenced by diet. Some constituents of the diet can cause the liver to have to perform additional work in order to maintain a healthy internal environment. Other ingredients if provided in increased levels can actually help support liver function. Hills prescription diet feline l/d is for the nutritional management of cats with liver disorders. Liver disorders are often serious conditions frequently accompanied by many uncomfortable and even painful symptoms for your cat. Hills prescription diet l/d was created specifically for the nutritional management cats with liver disorders that cause reduced liver function. Because the liver works to rid the body of toxins, it can be subjected to damage and reduced function from infections and ingested poisons as well as altered blood flow.
