Unless your dog's liver condition is severe most dogs continue on their regular diets, however it makes sense that their food should be one which is gentle on the liver and doesn't overload it with toxins.
This generally means one that is 100% natural, isn't too heavy on ammonia, copper, fat or salt, and contains anti-oxidants to help the liver do its job.
Ideally the protein levels won't be excessive either and there'll be enough fibre 'to keep things moving'.
Meats that fall on the lower end of ammonia and copper are white fish, chicken & turkey so we've only included foods made from these, alongside a lower fat content, or other similar recipes that have no copper added.
None of our kibbles contain added salt.
The lowest in salt recipe we do is our new grain free Love Me Tender Chicken cold pressed food at 0.1%, it contains lots of powerful antioxidants such as turmeric & nettle & is very gentle on sensitive digestions.
We also like the Happy Go Lightly options because they contain some useful anti-oxidants & an Omega 3 supplement alongside other botanicals associated with liver health (such as chicory & dandelion).
For dogs that need a few more calories, the Bells & Whistles Itchy Dog contains approx 15 mg of copper from the ingredients and lots of antioxidants and immume boosting botanicals from the 'Itch Eeze' formulation.
You might also like to consider additional herbal supplements that support & help cleanse the liver such as decaffinated green tea or milk thistle seeds.
