Hepatic Encephalopathy

8th Oct 2015
Sophie Owens
  • VioVet Customer Since: September 2015
  • From: Worcestershire, United Kingdom

Will this food be ok for my 9 month old working cocker spaniel he has hepatic encephalopathy. He is currently on Purina Hypoallergenic.

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

This should probably a much better diet for your dog and I would recommend it. However the cause of the hepatic encephalopathy needs to be identified of course and treated if possible. Your vet should also be able to advise on diets and any other appropriate measures.

Treats

1st May 2015
judy

my jack russell has just been prescribed hepatic food as she has liver problems and i was wondering if there are any treats that she can have as i have been told by my vet that she can't have anything

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

You should not give her any treats which are based on meat, fish, cheese or any of the protein sources which dogs normally love. It is a shame but it is true that these should come from the hepatic food and no extra given. However it might be possible to give some sorts of treats, depending on what your dog likes. For instance the treats which are made from dried carrots are usually regarded as safe for a dog such as yours and many dogs to enjoy them. Check with your vet first, but carrot treats for dogs are on the website and should be OK to give.

Liver shunt in my shit zhu

Sharon doolan

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Yes, this food should be very suitable for your dog with a liver (porto-systemic) shunt.

Do I need a prescription?

25th Sep 2014
Andrew Brewster

Do I need a prescription from a vet to order this food? It has been recommended by the vet for my dog.

Danielle Fletcher
  • Category Manager, Own Brand & E-SQP

No, a prescription isn't needed to buy this food. We'd always recommend that customers seek veterinary advice before feeding therapeutic diet to their dog, so it is great that your vet has already given you guidance.

Is royal canin hepatic wet food suitable for my dog

10th Aug 2014
Ben Gale

My 11 year old jack Russell terrier had a bout of pancreatitis approx 18 months ago which was corrected using a diet of royal canin gastro intestinal low fat kibble & chicken breast & rice which I cooked for him. He now has elevated liver enzymes but his pancreatitis results are now normal, is it safe to give him the royal canin hepatic wet can food? I also add some chicken breast to this or he won't eat it. Could He be at risk of the pancreatitis returning with this diet??

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Generally speaking it seems that high fat foods tend to be associated with pancreatitis. This diet for liver support is quite high in fat so it might not be ideal for your dog, though pancreatitis is an unpredictable condition. His chances of getting pancreatitis again now are not high, but if you change the diet you should do so gradually so that he gets used to it. Can your vet explain the elevated liver enzymes? It is difficult to decide which condition is of more importance right now. It might be worth investigating further, perhaps with an ultrasound scan.
